Just a quick question,.... is there a way to view all unit points cost in one list? Right now I am looking through the scenario editor at each unit one at a time in order to get the points costs. Is there somewhere that I can look to get these displayed all together, if not would it be possible to post a list. It would be helpful when designing a sceario to be able to have easy access to these.
Also, how are the point costs for each unit derived?
Ah, not so easy. I don't know of any place you can look to get a comprehensive list. I have a spreadsheet that has most of them, and I think it's fairly up to date. I'll see if I can get a list put together using that spreadsheet. It might take me a little bit of time though.
The base point cost for a unit is based in quite a few factors, including armor thickness (weighted for various locations), unit speed, unit movement type, the penetration of the units main weapon at different ranges, the unit ROF, the units effectiveness against soft targets, the accuracy of the units main weapon at different ranges, units size and stun value, how fast the turret rotates, and additionally for infantry units, the size of the unit (squad, or team), the units morale and ability to rally and if the unit has smoke available, and for units with AT weaponsm the weapon effectiveness at different ranges, and the weapons accuracy. A few units (not many) also have an adjustment to the final point cost based on special weapons or abilities.
In addition to the above, in each scenario, the actual cost of a unit may vary based on the turn and probability of arrival as well as the ammo level if I recall.
I'll see if I can put together a list and post it here in this thread.
