Starmada Nova Expansions

Postby Blacklancer99 » Sun Dec 13, 2015 1:36 pm

Just wondering if there were any Starmada Nova Edition Expansions in the works. I was particularly wondering if there was anything non-Trek planned...I feel like Nova Edition has really just become Trek Edition. I know that the guys at VBAM are working on some tie ins with some other tactical games and I was wondering given the past collaborative products if there was any chance there would be a VBAM 2nd Ed/SNE book.
Cheers,
Erik

I'm enjoying the format I've developed for the TNG-era expansion I'm working on, in the Bourbaki Basin. I should be playing some games with it over the winter, too, so I might post a Battle Report up here.

I can easily see expanding my format (with its photo-rich, counters-for-playing style) to other player-created settings. The only real requirement is that I'd prefer to work with settings which have some easy way to obtain pictures I can format for the creation of counters. Once I finish Trek in a couple of months, is there a setting you'd like to see worked on?

I've toyed with doing the Sins Of A Solar Empire factions and their ships, or a Star Wars ship collection. The main problem with doing an entirely new and original setting (like MurtalianConfederacy's great stuff) in the format I am using is that I don't have the Illustrator, freehand drawing, or 3d modelling skills to create the ships myself, and my format at the moment gets most of what I like about it from being media-rich.

Hi Erik, you could try asking over on the VBAM site but I am fairly sure that Jay said that there were no plans for a second edition version.
Maybe if enough people show an interest? Certainly I would not expect anything until announced projects are finished.
Wonder how many people are still waiting on Fleet Ops version 2, seems like it has been a long time since Dan mentioned it.

Someone mention my name? :P

I wouldn't mind working on a SNE expansion, but I'd need someone to do the artwork--just look at my efforts in my supplements to see what I mean...:)

Sorry, I should have been more specific...I was really wondering if Cricket had anything official in the works.

That's also what I mean--I'd be happy to work on a SNE expansion that gets officially published...:)
