Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

I have always used the same limits for firing expendable ordnance as for firing drones. When even a large ship can fire no more than a handful in each turn, they are less than an unbalancing weapon. However, I agree that letting a weapon fire from a magazine gives a closer simulation of some backgro...

Re: Add SFO Hull Sizes 13-16?

First,you will need a copy of Starmada:The Admiralty Edition .Then, multiply the Hull Size that you want by 1.5.Do not round off. Using this as the Hull Size in the Admiralty formula for Space Units will give you the Space Units for SFO . Using this as the Hull Size in the Admiralty formula for Shie...

Re: Fleet composition

A fairly simple way of assuring a diverse fleet is to require that a ship use no more than half of the remaining Combat Rating. For instance, in a 1500 point fleet, you could have a 750 point Superdreadnought, a 370 point Heavy Cruiser, a 190 point Destroyer, and two 95 point Frigates.

Re: baffled!

1*1.25*1.6*1.5 = 0.75. 0.75*(0.89*4) = 2.67 ~ 3. Half of this is 1.5 ~ 2. Remember that H & I each count as half a point in the Forward arc. 0.75 * (0.89*4) = 2.67 ~ 3. Half of this is 1.5 ~ 2. Rember that H & I each count as half a point in the Port and Starboard arc. 0.75 * (0.89*2) = 1.78...

Re: Result of a snowed in weekend.

I may as well put the Relthoza here. I am half tempted to give these ships weapons with the Trait: Continuing Damage, as this would fit the fluff in the original source material, but the statistics would not justify this. Therefore, I am treating these the same way that I have the rest of the ships....

Re: A request may be answered.

I had intended to get back to these sooner, but spending more time getting acquainted with the game system makes the errors in my first postings easier to see.You may expect some revision as I get the time. Having left you with three sets of allied ships and only one set of enemies for them to fight...
