Re: NASA SpaceX Launch

Thanks. A little bit of a bummer. We scrapped the boat plan, because we would have had to drive the boat through thunderstorms to get to the viewing area. So we watched the launch from the dock about twenty miles away. Close enough to hear it, though. It was already out of sight before the sound re...

Not to brag, but if Saturday’s launch is a go, I’ll be watching from a boat a few miles from the launch pad. Very excited!
Hope you had a good view.

More curious to know if Mongoose still plans to fix the poor quality of the PDF of said poster.
The sector maps where completely redone so should be in the plans.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Well, except that it was a one-of-a-kind ship class. Honestly, the holographic hull I find not very impressive. The Harrier is a stealth attack craft that can change it's visual appearance, which I find about as re-painting a F-22 Raptor by pushing a button in mid-air. Either the sensors of your pr...

Re: MgT2E Fuel Expenditure when making a jump.

High Guard page: 17 wrote:10% of the total tonnage of the ship, multiplied by the maximum jump score of the drive

The result of this is the number of tons that needs to be dedicated to jump fuel.

There's less political capital involved if drones are shot down, than if the aircraft have human crews.

On the physical level, the aircraft are lighter if they don't need to accommodate for human crews, and more acrobatic.
Also smaller.

Hello all,

I vaguely recall I asked about this years ago, but I cannot find that post or the notes I saved back then.

Can the pop-up mechanism be applied to barbettes?
Yes, but at a higher cost/tonnage.

I do not agree that the Engineers who are specialists trained in the operation of the power plant, MD, and JD are also responsible for life support. Ones with a specialty in Power,M-drive or J-drive no, it is a separate specialty. Life Support: Covers oxygen generators, heating and lighting and oth...

Re: Updated High Guard Ships

To be fair, it takes two advantages, so it costs 20% more, but I get your point. What gets me is that spinal weapons, even the particle accelerator, which is very long range in all smaller versions, are only long range and it's a little fuzzy whether you can add "normal" advantages to them. Nope, t...

It should say that it does – it was probably an oversight that they left it out; however, as AndrewW pointed out, all streamlined ships get fuel scoops free of charge,
It is included in the streamlining, doesn't really need a separate listing.

Re: Is the Empress Marava-class supposed to have a fuel scoop?

A fuel processor allows a ship to purchase unrefined fuel and refine it itself.

But any streamlined ship has fuel scoops, they are included with the streamlining.

I know Navy types like to look down on Marines, but to not factor them in when determining what level of medical care is needed seems a bit callous.
Or the marine contingent could have their own medics.

Agreed, MCr 435. For some reason my spreadsheet based modular cost on both hull and armour cost. I have no idea if that is something that was discussed during beta, or just my own house rule... I might have considered the armour part of the hull? Reinforced Hull counts, but armour doesn't as far as...
