Re: Shipping in the OTU is cheap!

Tariffs and lobbying for exceptions.

Within the European Union, I believe there's a national security caveat, where you can have no competition contracts for local defence contractors.

Re: Ships with 7G and higher acceleration

1. They just fought against a droidized military in the Clone Wars.

2. And they cloned enough grunts to man any number of battle stations.

Don't do that.

Specify the exact acceleration, even in fractions.

Re: Starship weapons on vehicles

In High Guard, a turret is a turret, it takes up the same space of one tonne. The difference is how much you stuff into it, three or four weapon systems, which may or may not be underclocked. If you project the restrictions of the High Guard design sequence onto dirtside vehicles, presumably that ve...

Re: Aslan, Samurai and other allegories

I'm going to assume the original concept was a highly patriarchal pride of lions where the women folk did most of the work, which you probably could extend to a clan. From that you could overlay anything from Sengoku era Japan to the Scottish Highlands. https://img00.deviantart.net/65c5/i/2009/287/9...

Re: What skills fit the pay?

In some parts of the world and (I'm thinking of an example I heard from Mexico), you go to a dive you know where these types hang out, and they know you, and a hit on an easily accessible target is two hundred bucks.

Re: Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

Basically, you want the original author(s)/designer(s) to demonstrate how it's meant to function.

Before you figure out how to exploit it legally.

Re: Shipping in the OTU is cheap!

It's the game mechanics.

Speaking of which, I know I've massaged the design process to get relatively dirt cheap jerry rigged merchantmen.

As regards to arms trafficking, if you the original formulas in Classic for bulk purchases, they're almost as cheap as chips.

Re: Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

In regard to lifters, I think the basic idea was to cancel the effects of local gravitation. But logically, if the result is a net positive, it should operate like planetary vehicles' gravitational motors; not accounting for atmospheric resistance, hull configuration, and annoyed home owners, you co...

Not all space suits are created equal! Verge space reporter Loren Grush tries on a prototype suit that’s custom-made for survival on the Moon, and a totally different model for Mars. It isn’t easy.
