Just want to make sure I am reading this right;

a weapon that deals splash damage is centered on a SQUARE and you count the number of squares out from that square. Meaning you end up with something looking like this:

Bursts are centered on an INTERSECTION so that you end up with a series of squares that look like this:

I know that is correct.

The issue is starship scale, concussion missiles have a 4 square splash. According to the above image that is a massive splash area considering the scale of a square in space.

Is that right? Do concussion missiles REALLY affect THAT many squares in space? Or should that splash only be applied to character scale?

Thanks
