Longer / bigger Railgun? Or better more small ones? Here are the numbers!
Intro / Info
For all who want know if longer/bigger Rail-guns are good or not! I have teste it my self (with a mod even to the extrems) so i know if it is even worth building it.
So i builde a railgun with 0 accelerator under ther one wiht 1 accelerator then 2,3,4 so on so on. The numbers are not 100% the game let killed armor have 1000 hp after but this get ignored from all weapons. The dmg to armor is a bit hard to count you dont get the info how mayn hp is left (right now).
So the game tells you more accelerator = more range and dmg. So all can see range it self after building it, but dmg its often unclear in battle you hit a shield or your target moves so fast you hit it not streight.
Rail-Gun Penetration & Ca.DMG
So here we are. From 0 accelerator to 37accelerator yes it can go over 30 but only with the mod who you can build ships who go to 1000×1000 (yes with the mod from the devs you can go way longer).
So for explanation!
How many Accelerators are used!
+% from game:
Waht the game tells you waht Power the gun will have!
Any 1 is 1 armor block. any thing behind the , is dmg on the following armor blocks (gos not deeper as 3blocks behind the destroyed, atleast with no mods)
Dmg on armor ca.:
A armor block had 4k HP so wen it get destroyed the gun have make 4k dmg. Here I have try to count how mayn dmg the gun do but like I say you get not a number so its ca. not exact. So the first killed 1 block and the 2th have only about 100hp left. So wen you know you need to go to 6blocks of armor you need at least 26 Accelerators to do it in 1shot.
I hope this this helps. For me I need this numbers so I dont waste money time and reaktor power on longer guns who need longer to shot, more to shot,more money to builde but do nearly the same or even less then 2 small guns.
Railgun Power Testing
|Accelerators||+% from game||Armorpen||Dmg on armor ca.|
The lates is the extrem test with over 1000% and with the mod you can go even longer…
Is have 160 accelerators and make so ca.1200% (its be more i thing).
It shot throw about 20 armor blocks but it needs to shot and hit the time all guns from 0-30 Accelerators need to shot at least 3 times.
