Hey,

Marmor and I started to figure out the Clan Hitboxes. We used IS SPL.
Due to the fact, that it takes time to search and color the hitboxes, we just have 2 Mechs. The others will follow. But feel free to start aswell :wacko:

Facts:
  • AMS is part of the side torso. (KitFox). So if you shoot on one of the triple AMS at the KitFox-C Arm it will count as a Sidetoros hit. (verification pls).

Nice work.

Your Warhawk front pelvis seems a bit messy though

Targeting Computer, compared. Fact is also, that the increase is changing from 4 to 5. Only 75% of the Value before.

Very nice, but one consideration. You might want to use different colours on the arms and torsos, they all look like the same colour since I'm colour blind, it might pay to use a similar colour scheme as was used on the inner sphere hit boxes.

Its pretty stupid how the gyro counts as the CT at all. It should be split down the middle, half n half RL and LL....

And the AMS counts in the hitbox? Thats derpy.

But good work, I have been wanting pictures of clan hitboxes. Nicely done.

Warhawk CT isnt as bad as I thought.

The gyro is an internal mechanism, and is not part of the legs.

It's derpy? Is it, or is it not, part of the mech? By this logic, weapon barrels should not be part of hitboxes, either.

Its not part of the CT either. shooting the gyro would be like shooting a person in the pelvis...would affect their walking ability more then their chest area.

It would seem that shooting the AMS would break the AMS not the torso..its an external item sitting above the entire mech. Only if it ammo popped would it cause any damage..and Clan mechs have built in case.

The gyro is INTERNAL, you can't shoot it at all. Do you even know what a gyro is? And, yes, the gyro absolutely is a part of the CT. It's a bunch of sensors and large spinning wheels with breaking mechanisms, designed to harness the momentum of the spinning wheels to stabilize the mech. You don't shoot the gyro in this game, you can't see it. Tell me where on the mech's exterior do you see the gyro?

That would require the game allowing you to target specific weapons for destruction. The game does not support this.

Wow...Storm Crows side Torso is almost impossible to hit from the side :) ...either arms or ct.

Good work, I look forward to future updates.

I've not done this kind of testing, but perhaps the clan ER LLAS will be helpful with it's very long 1.5s beam allowing you to drag it across different parts of a mech in one go.

It might help the speed of the process.


Thanks for putting this together.

Yeah, i will do the KitFox next. Should be done by this week. Than i have exams, and we will see :D.
And i will consider the idea of a long burning Laser, vs a Small Pulse. Currently PGI is at least using "logical" straight lines for the Center/Side torso transition.

€ Still no suggestion what colors i should use?

Now I know why the Kit Fox is so easily ST cored. Those ST are huge... :P

Edit: Great job on this, please keep that up, it's really interesting.

It is also interesting, that the KitFox is the first modell, in which the sidetorso take over the part of the lags at the gyro.

So no blue at the eggs ;)

+ If you build on the triple AMS, that is mounted on the arm. It counts as side torso hit, if someone shoot at it.
