VDR points cost... !!

For reporting bugs with the Vehicle Design Rules and Tyranid Design Rules calculators

VDR points cost... !!

Postby N/A » Sat Feb 04, 2012 12:35 am

:landraider01: has anyone else noticed the RIDICULOUS point costs that the VDR charges? at first I thought it was a little odd, so I experimented with putting in the rhino stats and, guess what..... 80-something points!!!! I hope this gets fixed soon. REALLY!!!!

VDR is about 10 years old and written for 3rd edition. It was never designed to make the normal vehicles, it was always designed so that you could field a custom vehicle, although you would pay a premium for it.

There is nothing to fix, the VDR calculator is using the VDR from CA 2004 and this has never been changed. GW have reduced the costs of vehicles in 5th Edition, but VDR was never updated.

Well... update it then. If you pay such a huge premium it's not worth it.

The calculator matches the GW VDR as printed in CA 2004. If GW update the rules, the calculator will be updated to match them. If you don't like it, feel free to write your own system or just ignores the points costs and tell your opponents that you've changed them.
