Re: My thoughts on Unity

Re: First stab at BSG

Personally, I prefer the larger number of smaller ships. But to each his own. ;)

It's amazing to me that, 23+ years later, I'm still fighting hull-size-creep. The early versions of Starmada had a hard cap of 12 hull points.

Re: Yet another B5 Thread

I don't like how you can reduce any side's rating as opposed to being forced to reduce the side that got pounded. (Makes sense for shields, not armor). Not necessarily related to your topic, but to answer the (unasked) question: You are allowed to take the damaged directional shield from any facing...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

I do not believe a case has been made that Expendable is unbalanced or "wrong". (That could happen, but it hasn't happened yet. :)) Reasons why I believe the point value is fine as-is: 1) The same numbers have been in use (more or less) since 2008. 2) The discount (in terms of ORAT) progre...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

I have been wondering if it's not worth stipulating that at least 50% of a ship's ORAT must come from non-expendable sources.

Re: Yet another B5 Thread

Looks like they have the same weapons. But I can't even begin to decipher how the ACTA stats relate to those from B5W.

Ammunition

Here is an initial stab at re-implementing the Ammo rule from SAE. Ammunition is tracked for each battery, not per weapon mount. Unless otherwise noted, a weapon battery has unlimited ammunition. Batteries with limited ammunition have the amount listed in the battery display, just below the arc desi...
