# phost: tube recharge rate

hello,

I just browse through the docs of phost v.4.0x. The formula for the tube

Torp_recharge_rate = Eff_TubeRechargeRate
+ Trunc((Torp_Kill_Power + Torp_Expl_Power) * Eff_TubeRechargeBonus

I wonder: is there a division by 100 missing (like for the beams) or is
it really this high?

Best regards,
Ingo

Next line:
Torp_recharge_per_tick = Random(Torp_recharge_rate)

"http://www.phost.de/phost4doc/config.html#TubeRechargeRate":
| This parameter indicates the rate at which torpedo tubes recharge.
| At every step in the battle, each tube is recharged by a random
| amount chosen uniformly between 0 and TubeRechargeRate. Once the
| charge level reaches 1000, the tube can fire another torpedo.
^^^^
|
| The TubeRechargeBonus modifies the recharge rate depending on the
| torpedo type, see the Combat Formulas for details.

Regards, Heiko

Yep. If you look more closely, there's also a right parenthesis missing.

The PHost 3.x documentation is probably a bit more reliable than the 4.x
documentation regarding formulas; the 4.x formulas are very incomplete.

// slightly simplified...
Uns16 TubeRechargeRate(Uns16 pTubeTech,
const CombatConfig_Struct *pConfig)
{
Int16 lRate;

lRate = pConfig->TubeRechargeRate +
((TorpKillPower(pTubeTech)+TorpDestructivePower(pTubeTech))
* pConfig->TubeRechargeBonus
/ 100L);
lRate = max(lRate, 1);
return lRate;
}
