Basically i’ve done abit of testing on the subject of weapon damage to buildings, And thought i’d post the results. Maybe it will help calm some the mind of people dreading that melee will base crack easily.
Does 40 Acc Armor pen perk work on buildings? : No.
Does damage from stats translate into damage to buildings? : Yes.
Do the assorted extra % damage perks work on buildings? : I believe it is purely strength/acc scaling. Although my math could be wrong, The tested values aren’t.
Do Perks effect tools or orbs? : No.
Do attributes help tools? : Yes.
Does Acc help orbs or treb? : No.
Star metal vs t3 control tests: All preformed on foundations (t3 reinforced/hardened) With the first attack of each chain. (Hammer heavy hit was 2nd, because the 1st heavy always misses target)
Keep in mind, Each foundation has 100,000 Health. With star metal tier because it is a intended feature for weapons to hurt t3, However is subject to change throughout balance phase.
