How much neural do MechWarriors experience when their mechs take damage?

For example, how much is felt if an arm is taken out or a weapon system is lost vs armor damage? How sever is the feedback from systems damage is what I am asking or does the neural helmet filter this out?

Do you have a way of measuring "neural feedback" that you'd like to use for this discussion?

As it is, there are only a handful of cases in the rules where MechWarriors are injured by feedback through neural helmets, like an ammo explosion (neural feedback: 2 hits). If you'd like to into roleplaying aspects of neural feedback that is not measured by pilot damage then you'd have to describe how to measure it.

They do say the pilot can feel things like losing the arm, but more due to a weight shift them pain.
Though it is said the mech becomes an extension of the body.

I would think it would be more of a discomfort then actual pain when that happens.
The ammo explosion might well be from overloading the circuits, causing the 'hits' to the pilot. Not from an actual feeling of pain.

But if you wanted to us some sort of feeling with the game, you might want to do thresh holds like x amount of points causes a roll for negative results. Save with body or the stats that are used in the newer versions.
Getting fancy, I would think PPC hits would hurt more then even an ac 20 or gauss rifle shot. Electric feed back being the basis for it.

Do you think the feedback is more like the tires on a car giving as you go around a corner to fast? Or something like feeling the rubber scrape off like it is skin?

Like psycho-sematic pain kind of thing.
