Thanks for the advice, pointers and suggestions; however, it isn't answering my question.
There are other modifiers that effect damage...that's a given, but what I want to know is the relationship between Damage and DPS so that I can get a base, vanilla, unmodified, actual damage number being done with each shot.
Anyone who knows about this and how to get that number, I'd appreciate a reply. Learning this will save me a great deal of expense as the only way I know how to determine which weapons to use is to buy one of each, go pick a fight, and watch which weapon does the most damage.
NOTE: I am as interested in ground damage as I am space, maybe more so with the range changes and introduction of new weapons.
Captain Collier's ground combat guide should help you then. In my sig 2nd one down.
I the ground combat is good, i recommend it.
the Program i do not, it is not accurate enough and leaves off too many variables and simple things (torps) that can affect DPS. There is not much diff in weaponology overall, your own in game weapon console with full power to weapons will show you max outpute damage you can do far more accurately. Use a simple calculator to figure the rest up.
