Unarmed Ship

Post by Gowron »

During battle, sometimes a ship with weapons is designated as "unarmed", while sometimes a ship without weapons isn't.
I've run a few tests with this result:

During combat, a ship is designated as "unarmed" if its minimum beam range is equal to zero.

If a ship is designated as unarmed, then its beam type and torpedo type will still be displayed correctly, but without the numbers and strengths.
For example, instead of
"6 Phaser Banks ... 40"
the game would only display
"Phaser Banks"

So if you're giving a ship torpedo launchers, but not beam weapons, then make sure that its minimum beam range is set to something greater than zero :)
A discovery consists in seeing something everybody has seen and at the same time thinking something nobody has thought yet.
