Re: Grand Fleets dead?

Thanks for the reply. The last post on the thread from someone I recognize as M12 was way back in 2011. Not too crazy about aircraft. That is the main reason I have no interest in WW2 naval or moderns. From the cards it looks like GFIII is going to streamline out a fair bit and add post 1940.

Re: Ship requests

I vote for pre-dreadnought to WW1. 1863ish forward to WW1.

Not too interested in WW2, the coming of age of aircraft and the aircraft carrier sucked all the interest out of that period for me.

Re: Print-and-play vs. hardcopy?

bekosh scoops me! I was going to suggest that the counters be designed to print out on labels. Design flat counters of the ships as if viewed from above at 1/6000 scale that woudl use one of standard label sizes. Then one only needs to pick up a pack, print them out and stick to a base. Litko makes...

Re: Pre-Dreadnought Era

End armour is a formula based on belt armour. You don't need to know the actual end armour as it has been made to be abstractly assumed to be derived from the belt armour. I think that qualifies as a "duh" on my part..... I'm so used to using historical values for Belt, deck, etc, that I ...

Re: Pre-Dreadnought Era

Thanks for all the replies. I have been accumulating information from multiple sources as I find them, plus I have gotten some great info PM'd. When I get the info organized and converted I'll post the list and ship cards. I've been a little busy, that thing called real life intruding, so it may tak...

Re: SFB Andromedans in Starmada

That doesn't really model the effects. I remember Andys very well. PA failure wasn't usually gradual but catastrophic. The PA absorbs any weaps until full, then detonates, this can be mitigated by bleeding off a percentage, transferring power to a Power Module an ejecting it, or using the power in s...

Re: Babylon 5 ACTA Conversion

Oddly enough I am in the process of re-watching the series as we speak. Or to be more accurate, watching the episodes I liked Season 1 through 5, skipping the 'filler'. I would love to see a good new series. Crusade and the ranger thing just weren't very good. Some good ideas, but on the whole, not.

Re: RPG?

Of all the RPG's out there, the current "rules lite" system with the most active support and grates flexibility looks like Savage Worlds . (Disclaimer: Myself I prefer Hero and can't stand the "not quite finished unless you buy yet another book" GURPs ;) ) That all said, I do rea...
