MgT 2e Missile Damage

I just noticed a difference in the rules for Missile Damage on page 162 about "Impact" the last part of the section reads... ... (the Effect cannot exceed the number of missiles in the salvo). However, reading the PDF version, this text is missing! Based on the PDF reading of that section, it is pos...

Re: [HG 2e] Aerofins and streamlining

To the original question: aerofins do make the most sense on a streamlined ship as you are using lift for flight and control at that point. On the side question, with the technology Traveller, a ship can do 1+ G thrust with their drives. This would allow for a powered decent from space, basically ju...

Re: High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

Doesn't all the weirdness over missile magazines go away in one recognizes the difference between mass tons and dtons? I think a Canon missile has a mass of 250 kg -- 1/4 mass ton. But a missile is quite a bit more dense than 1/14 ton per cubic meter. If its density equals water, it takes up 1/4 cu...

Re: High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

I actually found a bit more information on the Turret Ammo question in the Core Rulebook (page 157). Turret Ammo is still a bit magical, particularly when a turret has both a missile rack and a sandcaster, but at least the silliness of a turret with 36 missiles is tossed out. Turret has ammo space f...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

That picture of the hull layers is a neat concept, and cool looking.

Temperature is definitely a concern, heaters and coolers (radiators) will a part of designs.

Re: High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

... I think the theory is that the standard socket for a turret is 1 dT. The turret itself extends beyond the hull and can be bigger than 1 dT. ... This is RAW. The turret is supposed to be bigger than 1 dT. ... I understand that a turret extends a bit beyond the hull (in a way that doesn't affect ...

Re: High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

... What's the size of firmpoint turrets? I looked at the firmpoint rules also, they have a bit of consistency as each firmpoint mount only accepts one weapon. Interestingly, a Single Turret mounted on a firmpoint still consumes 1 ton of space, but the weapons mounted in a firmpoint turret are gene...

Re: High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

[House Rule Idea / Suggestions] Approach 1: Adjust the size of turrets based on type: Single - 1 ton Double - 1.5 ton Triple - 2 ton Quad - 2.5 ton Pop-up - x 2 Reduce the internal magazine of Missile Racks to 6 missiles (representing about 0.5 tons), and Sandcasters to 10 canisters (also about 0.5 ...

High Guard 2e Turret and Ammo

I’m reading through ship design rules in 2 e High Guard to design a few ship in an app I'm building. A couple of rules strike me as a bit odd, particularly how Triple Turrets and Missile Racks work. Each type of turret mount (Single / Double / Triple) takes up the same amount of space, 1 ton. A Trip...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

It's really more of an issue of sandwiching a material or layer that prevents heat or cold from penetrating from the outside environment inside, since metal tends to act as a conductor. ... The vacuum of space is an extremely poor conductor of heat, so you don't need to worry much about losing (or ...
