I'm a fan of option 2 and 3. A quick resolution for those players who would rather keep it all in space.

Re: Limiting an Empire's Fleet Size

I would be curious about the actual data on this. Because if the cost of the next higher level equipment is too high then it's better to just make more lower SL ships. GSF suffered from some of this problem where the higher level tech wasn't worth researching compared to just building more lower lev...

Re: Section V Brainstorm

I think the point is that in order for there to be role play options, different options have to be viable economically. Maybe it's just me, but I tend to think of roleplaying as doing "it" the way you want to, not the way that is the most efficient. Being efficient I reserved for being co...

Re: Section V Brainstorm

I think the point is that in order for there to be role play options, different options have to be viable economically. GFFP was a solid role playing strategy because it was strong enough in 3rd Revised to equal or better the idea of colonizing. Conquering was made very valuable in GSF/Ultra so it w...

Re: Section V Brainstorm

Ground combat goals and ideas 1. Attacker wants to defeat the planet as quickly as possible to free up resources to keep attacking 2. A solo planet/system cannot stop an adequately prepared attacker 3. The solo planet/system is looking to delay the attacker until rescue These are the basic goals of...

Re: Section V Brainstorm

I had some thoughts on ground combat. I know that my vision probably aligns more with Marvin's on ground combat but improvement is good. I have been playing around with this idea but haven't had time to put actual hard numbers into it. Ground combat goals and ideas 1. Attacker wants to defeat the pl...

Re: Nice Model of planet formation is probably wrong

It would be nice if WP were the missing dark matter/dark energy.

Well until something hostile shows up. IND planets never do well when visitors come.

Re: BASV, Gunboats

I had brought up the issues with ast against GB being better than fighters a few years ago on the mailing list and Marvin had made changes that shifted the balance so ast were an okay stop gap but no where near as effective as they were in original ULTRA. I thought it was supposed to be: GB beat shi...

Re: Largest battle

Largest battle in a campaign that was run under the GSF rules ended up with 314 ships on the player side (BC, FG, CLs) (10,741 total hull spaces) versus a J'Rill home fleet. 519 total J'Rill ships with only 106 being warships, but the XO racks on the factory ship destroyed 128 ships (3,936 hull spac...
