Re: New Ship Design: Boarding Shuttle - suggestions wanted

FYI Condotierre the Pecah, going against the rules in highguard, uses fractional ton fuel tankage (0.2). Actually, fractional is not disallowed. Other power plants require fuel tankage equal to 10% of their size (rounding up, minimum 1 ton). This provides enough fuel for the power plant for a month...

Unfortunately, High Guard is not the place for new skills. Perhaps submit a piece for the next Companion. :wink:
Well, there have been new skills in some versions of High Guard.

2. I don't recall quite which book it was, but there's also a programme that coordinates defence.
High Guard (Page: 4) has Point Defence.

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

I was making J6 Fast Yacht for Sector Leaders and Multi sub sector CEO. It came out to be 20k with 100 something tons of common area. And much like how it was suggested that you can Blah Blah Blah Blah Gyms as part of the Common Area.It still felt weird that a resplendent galley and a picnic table ...

One way you can tell this game was written by (no offense intended) geeks: there's no way to put a gym on board a spaceship, unless you use the gaming space. Perhaps this should be fixed? :D
That would come under Common Areas.

I've just received a set of emails to say updated pdfs of the core book, vehicles, central supply cat and high guard are available on DriveThru, which is great, no complaints from me.
A Tablet-friendly PDF has been added.

Re: Excel Ship Designer

D'oh... OK, one bug in the new version identified, although that really doesn't make sense considering you don't have to pay for a barbette or bay. Barbette's and bay's are integrated with the same weapon system. Turrets can take different weapons and there are several types of turrets available.

I could be wrong, and AndrewW is welcome to school me, but as far as I can see "Smaller Weapons" takes no hardpoints and uses no spacecraft turrets.
Correct, don't need a hardpoint.

Re: Excel Ship Designer

In High Guard , the Serpent Class Scout has 8 weeks and 2 tons (and 6 tons of Cargo space), why this update? I liked the old version more :) . Should be 16 weeks and 4 tons of cargo space. In general things are meant to be close to the originals, of course with different design systems they don't e...

Gazelle: Gig: Probably an old version of the gig, price didn't get updated on the Gazelle Armour size/cost off, unless the ship has armour 6? It does, that's just for the Crystaliron doesn't dount the 2 from planetoid hull. System Defence Boat Sensor includes size and cost of Countermeasures, but C...

That is not a TL-8 power plant (15 Power / Dt):

This has a different size and version number than my old, but otherwise seems identical:
Should be, but I'll see about updating that a bit later.

Serpent Class Scout:
Not 20 weeks worth of fuel. 1 Dt fuel is 4 weeks, 2 Dt is 8 weeks.
Hmmm, I'm showing 16 weeks and 4 tons. Guess it was updated at some point and didn't make it in.

Re: Excel Ship Designer

Sorry, I didn't save the spreadsheets since I was only testing. I'll try to remember what I found. I'm using "High Guard Ships.pdf" dated 20 Feb 2020. Perhaps that is an old version?

It's starting to look really good. I'm only finding small problems, and instead finding a few problems in AndrewW's corrected HG ships I'm comparing with.
Let me know what needs updating on those.

Re: Excel Ship Designer

Considering that the HG ships all add up and none disclose the airlocks, except for big cargo ones, I'm voting handwavium. Either it works the way it is or it works the way I had it. The free airlocks are extradimensional spaces (or pocket universes) and don't take up any tonnage from the ship itse...

The Drinax set has its own High Guard book that covers the most relevant ship types.

Well, it's own ships at least. Not the ship design stuff.
