I'm watching the wrap-up for FoMV, and just getting back to the forums. Give me another couple days and I'll be more talkative again.
I think I like where you're headed with the simple VDR, but this
"For every point you've used on your vehicle that exceeds that vehicle's allotted number, roll a dice every turn. 1-2 Engine. 3-4 Weapons. 5-6 Chassis."
- seems excessive to me. If I go one point over, my vehicle may well rip itself apart a little each turn? If I buy three rediculously big guns, my engine may act crazy?
I'd cut out the random which-bit-broke roll and instead tie it to whatever was upgraded too much. You've upped the sponsons? Roll the weapon malfunction. You've made the thing way to fast? Roll the engine malfunction. You've overarmored the thing? Roll for hull damage.
Anywho, that's my pseudo-constructive comment for now. I'll be less distracted in a couple days.
