Glad You've asked

I'll ship You the sources tomorrow (i'm off site of my work station), but here the explanations:

As DragonGod (editor @wiki team) at discord wrote, the firepower chart is in

**lulz/dakka** units.

Sort of.

The problem is simple: how in the hell generalize the firepower into a single number (digit)?

We have RoF, DPS, damage per hit, WoE, and what not (lock on time?).

So i made a quick and dirty deed: i scaled the calculated "raw DPS" and the calculated "Primary +Secondary" damage ("Alpha strike per weapon) "about so".

Then i added the two together (yes as simple as that!

)

Then, I pulled a square root of it and got range of values from ~5 to "zero" (0.8 is for MG and AC2)

This way I wanted to emphasize the extremes a bit (low end and high end) and to "compress" the values in the middle.

Luckily, i've got

**MBL to be 1.0** , which I find just ideal :^]

What i didn't expect, is the MRM40 to be "king of the hill" alongside the UAC20 ( enter "Bluebird"?)

Ranges:

The 1st "lul" token is for 100m

the next is 300, and it steps up for 200 each.

So i got the LRM to show the "empty" 1st "lul" and it's 2-7 as range and 1.4 as

**dakka** (lrm5)

Also this "range division" seems to properly divide the weapons and really shows of how little merit the "ER"and "cER" are in the medium laser range bracket.

IMHO

So all in all, I expect objections to "dakka", but fail to see any flaw in "lulz" (=ranges)?

Armor.

I simply took the armor values from the wiki/spikx.net and divided them with 900 (Fafnir has 90000 points and gets 100 "nibbles")

There from all units merely scale away.

There might be errors

Speed.

Speed is to be updated, I found speed in the XMLs and plan to extract those (and add it to spikx.net's pool of data soon)

Speed is scaled to be in points 1-10 and a chart is in my source drawing, showing each speed's MASC value too.

Therefrom I needed to show MASC vs non MASC and I think i goofed it up, maybe i revisit it before final release.

Currently the solution of "light vs dark" cyan might stay, but I think it's more consistent to firepower if I turn it to scale horizontally?

Price.

The price is calculated by dividing the raw value with 1700. The result is shown in "nibbles".

The intention is to get an quick and easy oversight along mechs, variants and other sort of lists.

Now, shoot along, I can take it
