Unofficial Artillery Cannons (suggestion)
#1
This post is intended to put feelers out for thoughts from others before posting on GH.

The group I play with and myself have long been dissatisfied with the canon Artillery Cannons. Nothing in their descriptions or other stats (TacOps, and yes I've seen the Errata) suggests that their damage should be lower than the full Artillery Pieces that share their names. As the current implementation in MegaMek is Canon, I obviously wouldn't ask for it to be changed. Instead I propose a set of Unofficial Tech Level weapons which use the same damage profiles as the full Artillery. As it stands, the only Artillery Cannon which retains any splash damage beyond the impact hex is the Long Tom. I don't even believe that these Unofficial Cannons will be at all overpowered considering how rarely these Cannons are employed and the massive cost to the mounting unit in space and weight.

Thank everyone in advance for any feedback on this idea, and I would be happy to answer any questions about it. Smile

This forums have extremely low traffic and doubtful you'll get any meaningful response.

Also we are extremely reluctant to add unofficial rules and equipment. Every piece adds increased complexity and potential for issues. So while your welcome to open your RFE understand that it isn't going to be something happening anytime soon or ever.

That's fair. I just thought there was a chance since there are a few examples of unofficial equipment already. Well, if I do somehow get some support for the idea, maybe I'll just make the time to do it myself.

Thanks for the response, and I look forward to the future releases. Smile
