Ciscos and Victory Points (VP)This toolset uses "Ciscos" as a victory point value, rather than SJG point values. There is no official SJG algorithm for assigning point values to Ogres - the official VP values were assigned based on hundreds of playtest sessions. The Cisco method, named after its creator, Francisco "Cisco" Cestero, is a very simple algorithm for determining approximate Ogre point values. It produces results close to the published VP values for official SJG Ogre models, but is *much* simpler than the Henry Cobb algorithm.
The algorithm for calculating the Cisco value of an Ogre is:
( (2 * Treads) + (Total VP of all Gear) ) * 5.357 / (10 - (Ogre's MP))The VP of "gear" (weapons and accessories) is listed in the Gear table of the database, and were apparently derived from old calculations by Cisco himself. In any case, they differ from SJG VP.
To convert Ciscos to Armor Unit Equivalents, simply divide by 10. To convert them to SJG VPs, multiply the Ciscos value by 0.6.
Using this algorithm, we get values pretty close to those published by SJG. For example:
