Visibility Guide[edit | edit source]
This guide explains how visibility works in RogueTech mod.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Visibility in RogueTech is straightforward an enemy mech can be in 3 states:
- Visible: the target is within visual range and there is Line of Sight (LoS)
- No visuals: there is LoS to the target but target is outside of visual range. This provides "+5 No Visuals" penalty when shooting at atrget
- No LoS: target is not visible and can not be target with direct attacks
Sight Range[edit | edit source]
Visibility (Sight Range) is defined by combination of following factors:
- Time of day (Lighting)
Time of Day[edit | edit source]
Time of day defines base visual range which is later modified by other factors.
|Base Sight Range||Light||Tags|
|15 hexes (450m)||bright||mood_timeMorning, mood_timeNoon, mood_timeAfternoon, mood_timeDay|
|11 hexes (330m)||dim||mood_timeSunrise, mood_timeSunset, mood_timeTwilight|
|7 hexes (210m)||dark||mood_timeNight|
Weather[edit | edit source]
Weather modifies base range by multiplying it by a certain factor.
Visual Target Identification[edit | edit source]
Visual ID - if you are close enough, your pilots can determine some basic information such as the chassis type, rough armor/structure values, and type of weapon. You have to be within 150 meters for visual identification.
List of Equipment Improving Visibility[edit | edit source]
|Cockpits||Can provide bonus to base sight range, i.e. Range Finder provides bonus of 20 meters to base sight range|
|Sensors||Some of the sensors also provide increased sight range, i.e. Sensor Powered provides 5% increase in sight range|
|Active Probes||Provide increase in sight range similar to some of the sensors, i.e. Beagle Active Probe provides 15% increase in sight range|
Some of the other items can also provide various bonuses to sight range, pay attention to equipment descriptions.
Example[edit | edit source]
Example: a Bushwacker equipped with Active Probe and Range Finder++ is fighting in Dim conditions in Rain.
Its sight distance will be: (330m (Dim) + 60m (Rangefinder++) * 0.7 (Rain) * 1.1 (Active probe) = 300m (10 hexes)
