Advantages and Power Level MM3

Postby lowew79 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:34 pm

My experience with Hero Lab with pathfinder has shown it to be flawed in a few cases. My lack of knowledge about M&M 3 has me wondering if it's me or Hero Lab.

SO here is my question... Is there a limit on how many points you can put in an advantage based on the series power level? If not then Hero Lab is incorrectly putting a limit of PL +10.

Example: In a PL 10 game I am trying to buy a Space battleship then pimp it out (lol). When I go over 150 ep, hero lab throws a fit. Now I know that for every point you put in the equipment advantage, you get 5 ep. Is it supposed to be limited at 30. Interestingly I don't get an overspent warning though, I get a warning about the ships athletics level being too high.

Any help is appreciated.

Since Vehicles are limited to the PL of the character, you may be pushing a stat outside of the range of the PL. If its Athletics, you are probably making the Strength to high.

So, vehicles ARE limited to the PL of the character? The equipment section of the book has set values for vehicles stats, ie,.. a "space battleship" has a strength of 22. which is higher than a PL10 hero could have. I appreciate the insight, if what you say is true that explains everything, do you have a page I could reference that says that?

A quick scan of the chapter Gadgets and Gear only makes a couple of references to Power level (Armor and Headquarters Power entry specifically mentions being limited by series Power Level). However, it does fall under the common sense rule.
