Re: One shot Jump Drives

You are missing the point. The ability to detect anything as small as a 100dton craft at 3 light years is a HUGE thing. Thank goodness they didn't make it even worse by trying to make the sensors faster than light. You could easily place a detector and/or ship in an enemy system at 100AU and never ...

Re: One shot Jump Drives

It's able to detect a ships entrance or exit from jumpspace at 3 light years. The fact that it "only" detects at light speed is not the issue. Something able to detect something as small as a 100 ton ship doing something 3 light years away when all the other sensors best range is 'distant' (e.g. mo...

Re: One shot Jump Drives

For analyzing stellar phenomenon I'm fine with it. For detecting jump transits I don't think it fits well at all... It can still only detect Jump transits at the speed of light, so at the speed of all other "Long Range" detectors. It does not change how a ship would jump into the system for large n...

Re: One shot Jump Drives

.....Of course, since gravity waves propagate at the speed of light, a jump emergence detected in a system one parsec away will have occurred over three years previously, however this can still be useful in predicting traffic patterns, naval movements or the presence of a starfaring culture......Th...

"Einstein's relativistic equation for gravity based on general relativity demands that gravity travels at the speed of light, otherwise the predictions we get for the bending of light and the precession of the perihelion of Mercury would be quite different than what is experimentally determined." -h...

Re: One shot Jump Drives

If it detected at 274 billion km in 24 hours it is travelling faster then the speed of light. Light travels ~24 billion km in 24 hours.

Far Trader/Free Trader Power Requirments in High Guard

Shouldn't the basic ship systems power requirement be 40 instead of 20 as stated in High Guard? The main rule book has them at 40 for 'jump dimming', and High Guard states Basic requirement is 20% of Hull tonnage, which would be 40.

One shot Jump Drives

I read somewhere about one shot jump drives. It referenced Highguard, and was 10% of regular drive cost. Anyone know what supplement/article/post I am talking about? I cannot remember where or I saw it.

Re: Yet another Battledress debate

Power Armor = Predator Armor. Really advanced stuff, but can still be effected by lower tech weapons.
