OGRE Nova

Recently did a conversion of ToddW's conversion of OGRE to Starmada AE to Starmada Nova (that was a fun sentence). I think the seeker rules added a bit to this one; sadly, I doubt I'll get a chance to playtest it before summer's out.

Re: A confession...

However, with this edition, I have designed, with P+P...one ship, and half of one. That's it. For some reason, the design process isn't clicking together like it has done with the past editions. I'm pretty sure I know or suspect a few reasons, but that's not much help. ... I think you might be on t...

Re: Piercing Change

If everyone will recall, in S:AE, ships with shields Level One could Not have these reduced by Piercing +1,+2, or +3. In this new Nova edition, shields "6" is like those S:AE level 1 shields, and is also not removable either. This should not come as a shock, because it is exactly how the ...

Re: Starmada Nova Comments

Anybody willing to put a technology-specific tech level into their builder? thanks andy What categories do you want? Engines and Weapons, and Misc are natural, but do fighters still warrant their own category? Does each of the 3 defenses get its own, or should they be rolled together under one Defe...

Re: ECM/EPM

Query with regard to Scout change (1 scout per 400 points -> -1 ECM for opposing side): is it legal to put the scout trait on the same ship multiple times for this purpose? Kind of thinking along VBAM "towing or whatever functions" lines, except here it would be "scout functions"...

I could see allowing scatter to counteract the -1 penalty vs. fighters/mines/seekers.

Re: Starmada Nova Errata

That's something strange. Directionnal defense gives you a small advantage (a +1 over a very small part of the arcs) and a bigger disadvantage (the opposite) but costs nothing? Seeing the usual SFU ships, I would say that DD gives you an advantage over FF, disadvantage over AA, and nothing elswhere...

Re: Confused By Armour

Conclusion armor is pretty pointless in the game. No more "pointless" than shields or ECM. Every argument being made about armor can be made about the other two defenses, as well. Take the Indomitable BB, remove its shields, and increase its hull size by x2.4 (the equivalent multiplier fo...

Re: Confused By Armour

Oh yeah, you're right... it does specifically mention crossing off armor boxes. I guess we were extrapolating from AE, where marines cared not about Armor Plating. This way is rather counterintuitive, though... "Yes, let us take and hold this piece of external armor plating!" "Sarge, ...
