Author | Range |

I have searched the forum through and didn't find an answer for following question.
There is a range picture in Arctic's photogalery.

For crossbowman with range 6 there are tiles in distance 7 he can shoot with full damage. How come? |

Where is your reference that this happened? IT may be that the person doing it had one of the arts equipped that increases range? |

1) The range indicated in that picture is 6 instead of 7.
2) Within these six tiles he shoots full damage, like any archer in his range.
3) The red indicate the aera where precise shot is active. |

Unlike movement range, shooting range obeys the distance formula. |

From "About the game"
"Shooter:
This creature can deal ranged damage. When the distance to a target is larger than 6 tiles, the target only takes half the normal damage."
The distance to a tile that is "5up 3right" from the crossbowmen is 7, but is coloured as full damage. |

the picture from Arctic is correct
Blue color mean you deal 100% dmg..if outside the blue color tile..you deal 50% dmg
red color mean aimshot(ignore defense)
nothing wrong there |

sqrt(5^2+3^2)
= 5.83
Thus not larger than 6 tiles. |

YXXXXXX
Y= where your archer stand..
X= tiles
Y DOESNT count in as 1 tile because you standing on it..
the ability said that shoot within 6 tiles..thats right..the 6 tiles mean X that i told you |

Thanks Straws - so the distance for range is calculated different way (Euclidean metric) than distance for movement. Good to know.
