Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

That's not how a lot of the real gaming world works. Min-maxing is part of competitive play and miniatures gaming is very competitive It’s about what you enjoy. Some people really enjoy the challenge of out-designing their opponents and the cat-and-mouse of design/counter. I don’t. I would rather b...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

Have you considered lowering the weapon TL? I have personally found that keeping everything at TL 0 as a baseline makes pretty much every version of Starmada for the last 10 years less subject to things like this, fighter swarms, etc...I know that everyone plays differently and has different philoso...

Re: Fun with the Star Fleet Universe...

Really like these, especially the Hydrans- they look "predatory". Almost crocodilian. Good stuff.

Re: Drydock pre-release

Couple of things...First, just wondering if the Evaporating trait is going to be added to the base Drydock now that Romulan Armada is in the wild and the trait doesn't seem to be a 100% SFU-specific trait. Also, wondering if it would be possible to add the "Ammo" tracker such as for Drone ...

Re: Gate Drive

No...I've also thought of something along those lines--it certainly would allow a more true-to-source-material conversion of B5... Several of the settings I like use something along the lines of a gate drive, with B5 being pretty Much the poster child. The EDT (extra dimensional travel) drive from ...

Re: SFU Unity

Just spitballing but thinking Fed racks "cost more" because of the defensive mode---though it shows up in the K&K racks as a lower cost rather than an increase on the Feds.

Re: SFU Unity

I got the rules yesterday and I would like to echo the thought that the rules seem a bit scattered throughout the SFU section making it a bit more difficult to find/reference. I like some of the stuff that is apparently SFU exclusive and like others I am a bit disappointed that there is no construct...

Gate Drive

Am I the only one that thinks Starmada is currently missing something like a Gate Drive/ Fold Drive? Something that would be big and complicated but useful for moving a bunch of ships (with limits of how close the sips need to be or placement of a gate or something). I have some house rule ideas, bu...

Re: Fighter stands idea

My takeaway from this thread is that Dan purchased d6's. I would have thought that by now He would have a surplus of several thousand idly hanging around his house just waiting for an attack roll.
;)
Erik
Edit: hope you ordered some d7's for your light fight flights.

Re: SUE Escort and potential new equipment

The Escort trait is such a simple and obvious addition that it just has to be included! The perfect way to simulate centauri guardian arrays from B5Wars among other things. Kudos! For Jammer maybe make it a penalty like fighter screens rather than completely blocking line of sight. Maybe Jammer woul...
