I'm trying to find out if it's possible to have a component's performance vary with damage. For example, say a supply storage component is 50% damaged so the amount of supply it can hold is reduced 50%.

Thanks!

One way to achieve such an effect would be to make individual components smaller. Try not to go too far, though, lest you end up needing 200 components to design a frigate. Cool

I did figure out I can control the amount of an ability based on the count of the components on the ship. Not a pretty formula but it works. Smile

Ability 1 Type := Combat Modifier
Ability 1 Description := Required for accurate weapons lock
Ability 1 Scope := Space Object
Ability 1 Range Formula := 0
Ability 1 Amount 1 Formula := 0 + iif(get_design_specific_component_count("Sensors") > 4, 0, iif(get_design_specific_component_count("Sensors") = 4, -17, iif(get_design_specific_component_count("Sensors") = 3, -50, iif(get_design_specific_component_count("Sensors") = 2, -83, -1000))))

I also just discovered I can set the Shield Generation ability in the vehiclesizes.txt

That will only get the count of components on the design, not the count of undamaged components on the ship.

That's no space station - it's a spreadsheet!
