Client is telling me that a robotic hull ship with 3 lasers, 1 zortrium and defense grid, piloted by Eaxaw, has 42 total damage, from 3 x "Ship Part Laser Weapon +14"
Right now I'm rather WAT?
Base laser weapon damage is 5.
Damage gain from each extra tech level is +2.
Eaxaw great pilots bonus is +2 tech levels.
I don't know current laser tech level of that ship (it's a multiplayer game, some information is concealed, maybe). Pedia for that player tells me it has Laser weapon tech, but does not mention "Laser 2", "Laser 3" or "Laser 4" refinements.
Should it have laser 3, the weapon would be damage +13, and with laser 4 it would be +15.
But it is at +14 damage per weapon!
Can anyone explain this?
I can't attach a save game because it is a multiplayer game (can't save).
