Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

Cralis, could I get an answer to my other questions as well? As to the matter of I, Ic, and J, it's not actually unique, most non-beam weapons have the Anti-Matter generator Twig on them (Have fun with THAT)

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

Cralis I'm already moving research funding to annual only, and I suppose that colonization could be moved as well. I don't want to move maintenance, as this causes problems with ships only being active half the year or discourages mothballing ships. Moving building would be a BAD idea, it make emerg...

Grab Bag Of Questions

OK the first up is the Battle Fund: Battle Fund (5,000 MCr) : Ships purchased through this fund may not be equipped with X, must be armed, and must be at least escort (ES) sized or larger. Bases and small craft can also be built, but freighters, PDCs and SS cannot. Am I reading this wrong, because i...

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

Three things Cralis: 1) This should encourage putting some funds aside for such situations, cutting down on the number of ships floating around problem. 2) Sell some IU, or FT to the CFN. Or simply scrap some older ships. 3) Maybe a rule about being able to free up funds from another part of the bud...

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

Whitecold, these special turns are only for population incomes, so IU, FT leasing, and CC incomes are unaffected and pay out their normal amounts every turn, part of why I'm not thinking of reducing maintenance further. (Interest is lower but it still pays out every turn). As for running in the red,...

Re: In Soviet Russia Planet Tractors

Ah, I thought you were saying that as there's no rule that says they can, that means they can't; this seems to break down a bit with ships and other large units, I can't remember or find a rule about regular Bases not mounting engines as an example.

Re: In Soviet Russia Planet Tractors

More or less the topic: What happens if a (PDC on a) planet tries to tractor you? As far as I'm aware the Golden Rules doesn't prevent PDC's from mounting tractor beams, That's not how the golden rule works. It literally goes "if it does not say that you can, then you cannot." That's true...

In Soviet Russia Planet Tractors

More or less the topic: What happens if a (PDC on a) planet tries to tractor you? As far as I'm aware the Golden Rules doesn't prevent PDC's from mounting tractor beams, so they can mount them, and they can (try) to use them, but what happens if it succeeds? I'm guessing that you move one hex toward...

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

I thought process here was to both better simulate reality and keep fleet sizes under control drop population based income back to occurring only once a year, on months ending in 1, and population growth to 3% on months ending in 0. All other income would be left alone. That was when I realized that...

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

Interstellar states in Starfire seem to devolve a lot of power to their planetary members, and the Players only deal with foreign affairs, the military, research, and colonization and not other maters like agriculture, justice and internal trade. It just feels that way because we abstract those are...
