Re: Gunboat question for GBa (SL6 GB)

Dedicated PD ships don't really work out, since they mostly defend themselves, and not their targets, so everything that doesn't carry around that kind of PD is still vulnerable. Also, nothing but PD currently deals significant damage to GBs early on. Your 10 Db only get a BASV of 30, with some 20H...

Re: Useless Weapons

The K weapons are one that definitely look weak up front. Crappy arcs, low damage, and shorter range compared to other LRW. While you're looking at fully turreted K weapons requiring a massive ship, broadside K require a FAR smaller ship (IIRC you can fit a Ke on a broadside heavy cruiser), and a br...

Re: Economic spread sheet

What kind of a to-do would you like? plugging data into the spreadsheet, running/managing a turn, something else?

Let me know. I'm sure that I can whip something up for you :)

Re: Population for Sensors

At the start of the game, your colony has a range of 60 tH. That seems pretty bad for the cost. Even with Yca, the range is only 1 sH. I'm wondering if people build little outposts for that effect, like in the Ernie's Earthling Empire tutorial. I've done it before, but I did that on a planet in the...

Re: General thoughts on rules

If you're looking at getting chits made, so long as you stick to a fairly common/standard format (which I believe the Starfire chits do) then you can save quite a bit on the tooling and production costs, and just have the per-unit printing and packing.

Re: Advice for New Campaign?

Great to hear that things are moving along for you! I'll always say that don't be afraid to roll with the mistakes. One time I accidentally was buying a full new invasion army each month for about six months (because I misread the rules). So I spent about 6-7 times what I should have spent for an in...
