Tactical Solitaire?

Postby Thorsz on Sun 21 Nov 2021 02:11

I've seen others mentioun solo campaigns. Is there any material that can be used to automate an enemy fleet based on scenario objectives?

I've done a bit of searching for this and didn't see anything unless I totally missed it.

Automate, not that I'm aware of. Most of us, I believe, just go through the races one at a time as if we are the controlling player (at least, I know I do). The key is to do the turn for each race in an order to minimize unconscious influence on their decisions. E.g., if Race C knows about Race B, but is not aware they plan an attack, I would do Race C's turn first, then Race B's, and then resolve the interaction between then after both have a set of "orders" in place. Basically, you have to pay attention to whether or not the decisions is based on "character knowledge" or "player knowledge". :o :? :D

Yeah, I'm finally back (again)! Sometimes, life (and 13yo son's) don't leave you time to play SF and earn a paycheck. :/

No, really! Matt actually made me an admin here!

One might adapt the 'Robot Opponent' process from the SFB Cadet rules?

I don't think that I've seen those before. How does it work?
