Im noticing that even with pilot wounds set to 4 and wound mod to 1, I am unable to be killed. I've been exploded by flak, suffered midair collisions, shot through the chest, etc and have not ever been killed. The most I get is Seriously Wounded, This was not an issue in the previous version, so I suspect it might have to do with the AI preservation? Or perhaps the Max injury isn't being set properly?
I'm having the same problem. I've made sure to set my wound level to 4, but the worst that ever happens to me is I get seriously wounded. It's not a gigantic deal, as I can just delete the character myself if I die for certain, but it kind of takes some of the drama out of the situation. Am I doing something wrong, or is there some kind of workaround, perhaps?
