Re: toy trains and fusion reactors

And it wouldn't have been as much fun either. Think about how many times they'll want to run the tests (No, I want to run the radiation source slower... just to make sure we haven't missed anything.. yeah...)

Re: Grrr... Sometimes I hate computers.

Honestly, if you are looking at swapping out, even IF the motherboard is non-standard layout (it's probably ATX or something like that) a new case isn't overly much more on top of new mobo/CPU honestly. In any case, I'd bet that it's a standard motherboard design. Dell builds stuff cheap* cause they...

Re: Rules question

Looking at the AP rules, came across an issue I couldn't find an implicit answer to. A data-linked AP group is attacked and takes damage as as a squadron. Every X damage points destroys a buoy. That's clear. My question is, When does the control buoy die? At the controlling player's choice, which g...

Re: Starfire without WP's?

The way I've always treated it was that so long as there was an unbroken line from your fleet to a planet with at least medium population OR an orbital, stationary SY with in-system population (either case representing the needed physical production capability to produce spares etc) and said line di...

Re: Variable Mg Size

That fails for the current 1/3 and 1/2 values which is why the cost should just be rounded up from there. The book values for both 1/2 and 1/3 are ridiculously high. They aren't cheap by the formula I use, but a bit more reasonable. Or it makes the assumption that the majority of the cost is in amm...

Re: Rules question

Just making use of an existing topic to posit a new question: Just what is the maintenance percentage for drones and deployed bouys? I know it's in the rulebook somewhere but I just can't find it. The tables in the appendix don't list drones, and L7.02 doesn't mention it either. I checked the entry ...

Re: Economic Rationalization of Ultra

Bombardment only works if you are both WILLING and ABLE to destroy what the enemy forces are around. Why wouldn't they fight right on top of the IU's? Or the PU's? Or the RDS's? Etc. Want to bombard? Go for it... Destroy exactly what is most valuable. Simply denying a conqueror resources is a perfe...

Re: Economic Rationalization of Ultra

True, but I don't see getting rid of the colonization discount on shipping as being that big of a deal. As for reduced habitability ranges, an unoccupied habitable planet is still too valuable not to colonize. The colonization discount is 1.1 MC per PTU emplaced. A for a new empire wanting to put d...
