I've updated the information on armor consoles and resistances a little. The actual formula for those are also more complicated. I didn't feel like writing it out, though*, and instead simply refer to the podcast with the Excel sheet describing the math. Blame Deshal for it. :p Thanks, Deshal, actually. This thread must be kept up-to-date and accurate to deserve its stickiness.

I am running into space problems with that post already, and describing and explaining the formula would probably take too many words. The essential element of the "actual" formula is that it also includes the 75 % resistance cap. The mathematical effect, as Deshal learned through his testing, shows that it can lead to a few percent off the mark.
