Hi. I hope I'm not offtopic here.
A friend recently made me notice that it was almost impossible to reach more than 15 meters range on a melee weapon.
We made some tests in Simulacrum with zaws and whips and the results where interesting.
For instance a Dokrahm zaw had a base range of ~4.5 meters. The expected value with maxed Primed Reach equipped should be of 4.5+4.5*1.65=~11.9 but instead it was of ~8.5 meters in our tests.
We got similar results with other weapons.
Does someone want to test this or has someone already done this recently?
