0 Damage Weapons and Shields

Postby XionGaTaosenai » Sun May 04, 2014 5:04 am

Apparently if you have a weapon that does 0 damage and doesn't bypass shields, then when it hits a shield it will be absorbed without stripping the shields at all. Is there any way to correct this, and have a weapon that does no hull damage but interacts with shields as if it does?

This could work:
Normal damage = 1
Hull damage = -1

I'm not entirely sure though. (In any case that should still do crew and system damage).

I'm not sure how you specifically denote hull damage, or if you even can do that. In any case,
"<hullDamage>-1</hullDamage>" doesn't work.

There is no way around this as far as we currently know.

One possible workaround, make it do Ion Damage along with whatever other specific damage you want, but no regular damage.

There are loads of specific damage attacks tags here;

Try setting 'damage' to 1 and everything else to 0 (0 turns off damage, irrc, whilst -1 actively repairs)
