Hey, can someone link to or explain how/why the term ablative is used in reference to the ballistic vest plates and so on in the game? (e.g. the pocket restriction says it must be an ablative armor plate’) The term also appears in a few places in the code in comments.
Looking around on wikipedia/google, I can’t find any reference to ablative armor except for science fiction stuff and heat shielding on some modern spacecraft. I didn’t find any reference to ESAPI blates as ablative armor.
I guess it means one of three things:
- I simply didn’t find the correct real world sources
- The game is using some kind of sci fi tech for the armor plates but with current day stuff like ballistic vests and terms like ESAPI.
- The term is being misused in the game and code.
