Default Sloped Windshell Armour on Cycles with Sloped Armour ?

Hi & extremely glad to be back posting .

Okay if a Cycle has Sloped Front & Back Armour , what happens if it also has a Windshell - with or without Windshell Armour ? Does it count as Sloped to ? I'd most likely allow it as Cycles need all help they can get .

Just a minor query & it's probably been raised before - I can't remember if it has or not . I've been 3+ months in hospital & another 7 weeks recovering far outside London & the old brain is nowhere near working to capacity yet .

Yeah I'd say a sloped cycle has a sloped windshell too. Sloping doesn't protect tires, but a windshell is more like vehicular armor IMO. It costs a cycle a space to slope armor, so there's a big tradeoff in a 7 space cycle!

I'd say that it is sloped as well, at the normal cost.

That makes sense . We'll implement it in our games from now then .
Looks like my Morton Cycguard 'brick' Hvy Cycle is going to be even harder to take out from now on .
