I'm wanting to create another (larger) Ion weapon for personal use. In Core (beta) we have large vehicle sized Ion weapons with the special quality, "Ion", that deal strain damage to vehicles. Damage is 8 to 10 on vehicle scale. We also have the personal scale Ionization Blaster (think Jawas) that causes 10 damage with the quality Stun Damage (droid only).
I'm imagining a large support-sized ionization gun (think light repeating blaster size). I would want this weapon to have at least a chance of affecting small vehicles (it can take out a landspeeder). The Ionization Blaster affects only droids. Would it create any problems for the game system if I changed this to Stun Damage (droids or vehicles)? Also, for vehicle scale weapons, it would make sense for them to be able to target droids, not just vehicles, with their Ion weapons. If there are no indirect problems, weapon quality "Stun Damage (droid only)" could be deleted and replaced by the current "Ion" weapon quality if the wording allowed it to be used against droids also (not just vehicles).
Did the last Core beta discussion stay with the 10x conversion between personal and vehicle scale? If so, the current Ionization Blaster would have a damage of 1 on a vehicle scale. I would want a larger personal Ion Gun to do more vehicle damage then the small Ionization Blaster, but pumping it up to 20 damage (personal scale) and 2 damage (vehicle scale) would make it too much of a hand-carried droid killer. The E-web tripod mounted repeater does 15 damage, for example.
