I built a PDF base of hexes that I can move icons around on and use little scalable arrow icons with a variable number of pips to indicate speed. It's not a fancy or useful game playing system like Vassal, but it's pretty for my purposes, since I can spread ship record sheets out around the monitor or put them on a second monitor.

I got all excited by the announcement of Starmada Unity and pulled it out of storage to see if I could work out some of the kinks in it for use when Nova comes out. Still not sure if it'll be perfect, but just an indication of how much Starmada inspires loyalty and interest in people!

The rulebook should be out later today.

To clarify: the "free upgrade" offer applies only for the Star Fleet Armada books (Klingon Armada, Romulan Armada, etc.). If you want the full rulebook, you will have to buy it.

Per ADB, anyone who has one of the Admiralty/Nova Star Fleet books will receive a free PDF of the Unity version of those books and/or be eligible for a hardcopy at a nominal fee ($5, I believe).

More details once those books are finished.

The book being released today is the 140pp. Unity Rulebook which has nothing to do with the SFU.

Ahhhh! I went back and re-read the pertinent information from Captain's Log #52, and sure enough, my first read-through was merely wishful misreading.

With that in mind, will I be able to order the hard copy through the mj12 website like I did with Admiralty and Nova? And if I wanted print and a pdf, will that be an option? :D

Anyone who orders the hard copy before the end of April will get the PDF download for free.
