Re: Anything new ...

Best news I've heard in a while, but tempered by the fact that there have been plans intermittently for quite some time now. Any thoughts on a probability that plans will become actualities? SF is really a very good basic system, that I think with a few tweaks and expansions could be something excel...

Re: Anything new ...

Time for my annual query regarding Spitting Fire. Any plans to do anything with it? If not, would you consider releasing the plane designer tool kit you used to stat up the existing planes?

Thanks,
Doug

Just got DA ...

... and while I'm glad to finally see the Lyrans and Hydrans, I'm a little disappointed that ESGs are purely defensive systems. This seems like it would take away some of the knife-fight fun that the Lyrans brought to the party. Was it just too difficult to model the SFB effect? In the olden days, w...

Dunno about that, I've been asking since KA came out. Then again, I've been asking for more stuff for Spitting Fire for ages, too - so that means little. ;)

Re: Romulan Armada now available!

Great news! And even better, now that those pesky Romulans and Gorn are out of the way, you can move on to the Lyrans and Hydrans (and Tholians)! :-)

Re: Aircraft and Sub Rules for GF2 - also miniatures choices?

And I should now have a PDF of GF1 on it's merry electronic way to me - bought it this morning. That should hold me over until there's a GF2.

Re: Aircraft and Sub Rules for GF2 - also miniatures choices?

Awesome stuff - thanks! I did not realize that the deck armor calculation was changed from GF1 to GF2. I do not have a Conway's, but I _do_ have the ship data book from SeeKreig 4 (which is out there for free), which has the deck armor stats for a pretty large sample of ships.

Re: Aircraft and Sub Rules for GF2 - also miniatures choices?

An aircraft supplement for GF2 could be finished in relatively short order, if there were a demand for it. Dan: Well, I for one would like it, but then I've been waiting forever for a Spitting Fire expansion too, so my tastes do not seem to be reflective of the masses. Anyway, supposing a supplemen...

Re: Aircraft and Sub Rules for GF2 - also miniatures choices?

So Dan - what's the word? Is there a plan for a supplement to GF2 in the near term that will include aircraft (and perhaps some of the other ancillary things that were apparently in GF1 but disappeared in the new edition)? Or would my best bet be to buy GF1 and adapt those rules to GF2? If so, do yo...

Re: Admiralty Edition Firing Arcs

There was much discussion and gnashing of teeth over this when developing SAE. Suffice to say my proffered compromise was accepted. That doesn't mean you can't adopt the rule you propose with a minimum of fuss. Depends on how you define "a minimum of fuss" - with Starmada X, there was not...
