Patch notes/Horizon/1.2.1

Jump to: navigation, search
Armor pieces are receiving their 2nd pass at overhauling. All armor pieces are finely tuned to be balanced, yet have some diverse characteristics in terms of protection.

Pieces now start at a more normalized protection. The total amount of protection will be similar between all armor types, but their ratio of damage/energy resistance varies, which is what defines each armor type's characteristics.

The class/size (light, med, heavy) simply bolsters the base ratio directly by a smaller amount now. Whereas material mods add different amounts of protection, and give a lot more now.

For example:
1> Leather chest base starting values = 4 DR / 12 ER
2> Leather chest "heavy" class adds +4 DR / +12 ER (instead of +21 DR / +26 ER)
3A> "Boiled" upgrade adds +3 DR / +9 ER (instead of +2 DR / +2 ER)
3B> "Treated" upgrade adds +12 DR / +36 ER (instead of +6 DR / +7 ER)
3C> "Studded" upgrade adds +24 DR / +24 ER (instead of +8 DR / +10 ER)

This allows each type of armor to retain it's base characteristics better, and keeps the base class mods balanced better. It also makes the actual upgrade mods mean something now (which is how it should be.)

- The weight added with some mods is lowered in some cases

- DC armor and Vault Security armor now has all 3 sizes (light, medium, heavy), but it uses the same graphic
- DC armor and Vault Security armor can now be properly hidden (may need more testing)

- The different armor sizes have no bearing on the crafting recipe requirements for material mods now
- The metal helmet should have appropriate crafting requirements/materials now
