Radar Question

Post by Fenny » Sun May 08, 2005 5:25 pm

I've read that Stealth is considered as total front, side, rear.

Is this true with radar?
If I have radar at the side, does it look for enemies at the side of my ship?
Will radar at the rear look for enemies behind me?

Or is it total ship radar looking out the front?
Thanks in adavance....

Radar affects only the side it is put on. So, if you have 8 radars front, you'll be able to see really far out front, but it won't help your side and back any.

On the other hand, if you put 2 radar on each side, front, and back, then you can see moderately out each side.

So, the simple answer is radar is directional, unlike stealth.

Also, if you haven't seen it already, here's BoxZone_Author's useful chart for radar and stealth (scroll all the way to the bottom).
