Re: Quick Question about PDCs

The reason nobody builds them in desolate locations is that they typically don't need a massive PDC for defense in those locations. However, the 3% maintenance rate is really good for a PDC that only mounts a (CC) and Yc. And they are harder to detect too. Pretty sure you can put these on a SS Core...

Re: Extra WP in home system

Actually, per the rules, you can have undiscovered WP in your home system: " It is also strongly recommended that each home system have exactly three open warp points, although additional warp points that are not immediately detectable (and balanced between the players) will probably not cause ...

Re: Weapon Combinations

I was originally planning on using Ra and Fa for my test game, if I ever get around to playing it, but recently I've switch to Ra and La. That one HS bigger for Fa is a bit of a disadvantage, bit too much of a squeeze, plus I can swap them out for Ra easier. And there's this neat trick I can do putt...

New World/Life-Type And Colony Cost Adjustment

I developed to new world-type/life-form rules because what we have at the moment isn't that realistic, see Procyon's houserules, however it's not as harsh as those. Additionally it deals with the case of pre-Oxygen Catastrophe Earth. Earth hasn't always had an oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere and in fact ...

Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

Cralis the question is (Was probably in light of procyon's answer) how do I apply a Breakthrough, which is a research activity, to a hull type, something that is prototyped and NOT researched.

Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

I think he is asking about the breakthrough to get generational hulls. You automatically get the alpha gen of hulls. So you can make a 30 HS DDa. But you have to make the breakthrough to make a 35 HS DDb. At least I think that is what he is referring to. Exactly. You don't research hulls, you proto...

Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

#1, That makes games-rules sense, if not in-game sense. Of course you'd also need to figure out cost for the launchers. As for EDM's and planets, would interposing the DF of the missile do something, and I've got the nagging feeling I'm missing something here, and not just the times 3 damage for obj...

Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

Huh, the wording on bases was a bit different, to me suggesting that they didn't need to meet the armed criteria, doesn't make any sense, but still there. Any idea why PDC's aren't allowed? You (normally) start with Ta, so that would be a yes. And you've still missed my last two questions, about Hul...

Re: Grab Bag Of Questions

Cralis, could I get an answer to my other questions as well? As to the matter of I, Ic, and J, it's not actually unique, most non-beam weapons have the Anti-Matter generator Twig on them (Have fun with THAT)

Re: Is Maintenance Too High?

Cralis I'm already moving research funding to annual only, and I suppose that colonization could be moved as well. I don't want to move maintenance, as this causes problems with ships only being active half the year or discourages mothballing ships. Moving building would be a BAD idea, it make emerg...
