Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Commercial Vessel Vigilant Magnate 1. I have no clue as to who operates this starship. 2. Looks like a one off design. 3. Technology level fourteen may indicate Confederation. 4. Twenty security and two stewards. 5. However ... many ships run with more stewards and a fully qualified doct...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Transstar: Freightliner Stella Polaris Class 1. Licensed design. 2. Confederation subsidies for construction. 3. Ships Taken Up From Trade. 4. Do armed merchantmen work? Depends. 5. Ubiquitous for covert operations, though I was thinking they'd use Beowulfs. 6. I'm pretty sure that acceleration fac...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Vegan Vessel 1. More than half tonnage consists of recessed smallcraft. 2, Deckplan not quite how imagined that would work, and certainly leaves no avenue for adding thrust to overall motivation. 3. A variant of containerization/lighters? 4. Modularity is suggested, insofar as the smallc...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Spaceships: Vegan Interface Transport 6. The preferred accommodation, workspace, and bridge configuration may be open offices. 7. They may also be reconfigurable. 8. It could be that Vegans are highly focussed, and less subject to distractions, if their environment caters to them. 9. I've considere...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Spaceships: Vegan Interface Transport 1. Sixty, one hundred twenty and two hundred tonne pattern smallcrafts; maybe not that small. 2. If I understand this correctly, you can using customized recess space and hull rails, sort of makes it a pseudo breakaway hull at five percent additional tonnage. 3...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Naval Tender Carnot Class 1. Tetramegatonne. 2. I agree that the carrier should withdraw. 3. Centikilotonne missile module. 4. Deployed in pairs; why not triples? 5. Unpowered cargo modules: there goes the ice cream shipment. 6. Prime movers, something I could get behind with. 7...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Light Carrier Zuiho Class 1. Not much point below twenty five kilotonnes. 2. Batteries - so I zipped through the book controlling ef to see if there's an extra rule to explain it; which if it exists, it's not in this manuscript. 3. Independent task group flagship. 4. Two wings t...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Battle Monitor Murat Class 1. Hundred kilotonnes is about the minimum you'd want for a line of battle monitor. 2. At this level, don't e much point in acceleration factor six. 3. Meson spinal mounts tend to be the degree you're comfortable with. 4. I'd install long ranged meson ...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Fleet Destroyer Daring Class 1. Five kilotonnes would be the minimum. 2. Armour in lieu of range. 3. Acceleration seven is about right. 4. You got to keep up with the main fleet units. 5. Large weapon system bay is about correct. 6. Ironically, you should stuff cruisers and dest...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Courier Vessel Mercury Class 1. I wouldn't have picked a three hundred tonne hull. 2. Acceleration factor five or seven, probably three if you try to squeeze in factor five jump drives. 3. Range four parsecs; for a fleet courier, I would have sprung for five. 4. I'd shuffle this...

Re: Mercenary Kickstarter boarding rules request for clarification

1. How much tumble can you strain a hull under, until inertial compensation gives out? 2. Or you short circuit artificial gravity with ion cannons? 3. Once the spacecraft is successfully grappled, it becomes contested in what vector the grappled spacecrafts continue with. 4. Attached like a limpet, ...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Strike Boat Scorpion Class 1. Seventy five tonnes; I'm shocked. 2. Fuel tanks, four weeks of operations, four fifths of a tonne; you could call this the Solomani Squeeze. 3. Would still opt for dual cockpit. 4. Only six torpedoes in storage? 7. You could, of course, preload two ...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: UB-75 Large Utility Boat 1. I don't know where this twenty five/seventy five tonne dynamic comes from. 2. At least with the Sword Worlders, you know that the two four eight binary cadence has a lot to do with free parking. 3. All things being equal, mostly looking at minimumaliz...

Re: Mercenary Kickstarter boarding rules request for clarification

Grappling and docking aren't necessarily the same thing.

One tends to require cooperation.

Re: Vacc suits for free?

It depends, as with most things, on economics, utility, and convenience. If it's worth it to own your own vacuum suit, whether bulky hard or emergency soft, or ones that will only temporarily protect you while you head for the nearest oxygen oasis, will probably depend on the player's cost benefit a...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Vehicles: Airships

Wait a second.

Airships are by definition lighter than air, as long as they are full up.

You'd completely use the auxiliary gravitional motor motivational force as thrust.
