Re: DD1.03 Mardukan Rebellion Questions

It's in the rules. The upper parts of that table are reached by using modifiers gained by capturing populations. Ah, I'm used to the modifiers being at the bottom of the table. First, GG5.06.10.1 says 2000 PU for all but B worlds, which have a 900+200 PU starting amount. And that's actually VERY im...

Re: Engines, Refitting, And Class Fees

Doing a “simple” generational swap (like changing Ia to Ib) is vastly simplified. In reality, such an upgrade is likely to be an incremental upgrade of a few of the sub-systems, not a complete swap of the entire drive system. But “adding an extra engine”? As per the rules right now, that will be a ...

Germ Of An Idea For Gunboat Design

So I know there's a bit of interest in designing customs Gunboats and while reading some of the Damon Bradley SM's (Is anything in those things canon?) I had idea: Something has to be 5 HS or bigger to transit a WP so simply design 5 HS ships,say that there Gunboats and divide their cost by 10 along...

Re: DD1.03 Mardukan Rebellion Questions

Two questions: 1) Intelligence from ruins: The rules as they stand allow the young races to get data to help EL research from the ruins about their homeworld, but what about research in other areas? And is it possible to find other kinds of data, like locations of WP and other survey data? House ru...

Re: Engines, Refitting, And Class Fees

Forgot to address this before so I'll do it first: The problem here is that this isn't reflected in generational upgrades, at least not hard enough. You'd think that adding an extra engine would require juggling these sub-systems for all engines, but you can arrange things so that this isn't the cas...

Re: Engines, Refitting, And Class Fees

EDIT: Let me expand upon this a bit. You really should have made a new post. It helps keep other people from getting lost partway through the conversation. I started my first edit before you posted, bit hard to fix that after wards. My take on the situation is that some, if not most, of these 'inte...

Re: Engines, Refitting, And Class Fees

You are getting further astray of my original point. Modularity can’t even begin to touch drive systems. There are too many integrated sub-systems that we abstract for simplicity in the game. I’m not going to continue to unroll that abstraction. The problem here is that this isn't reflected in gene...

Re: Engines, Refitting, And Class Fees

Your first point doesn't make any sense, it lacks a huge amount of context and gives examples of self-contained systems. I was including F and T in a greater list, that also includes (AM), (CAP), (DFS), (It), and (St), all of which work by changing the ships DF. Presumably a ships engines and other...
