Re: Capital ship construction questions

Nice to see you on the thread barnest. I'll be interested in your thoughts on the vessel chassis I'll be putting up (hopefully over the weekend, almost there). I can't wait to take a look at her. I love the cap ship design system despite its flaws. It makes for some pretty ships as well (especially...

Re: Capital ship construction questions

Yeah, the spinal mounts and armor are a no-brainer, but I notice that none of the big vessels in Fightships or the Trillion Credit squadron in any way down play or sideline sandcasters and I was curious about the tactical balance here. I'm also not sure how the -2DM for pulse lasers for point defen...

Re: What's up with Traveller?

Other things are in the works all over the place but most of the writers, as far as I know, are freelancers who do it in their spare time. It slows progress to a crawl, but at least things are ongoing still. And I can confirm that small humans make writing even slower :P I'm glad someone else thinks...

Re: Trillion Credit Squadron: The Tournament

That's a really good and obvious idea... Anyone have issues with me using the ships from the book for the ref's fleet? They can be the... 'control' fleet as it were... (Plus it helps that I can just look to that rather than messing about setting up and doing construction). I'll message matt about ge...

Re: LFG GM and Players for Online Game.

Yeah that sounds awesome to me :D
I'm tempted to suggest a no ship game. I think it sounds like fun :D

Oh, I'm not against a free trader game, but within that I would prefer a bit more 'insane adventury-ness' and less 'Yet another planet to buy goods on'...

Re: LFG GM and Players for Online Game.

I'm pretty happy with anything, though I am so done with merchanteering for the time being. I don't mind a bit in the background, but I'd rather it wasn't the core point of the game.

Re: Trillion Credit Squadron: The Tournament

I have three. Come on guys, there must be more than this out there who want to be involved? Four would be nice...

I could run with three, but it'll be a fast tourney with only three rounds.

Oh, yeah I'd be happy to play instead of run. It'll be the first time in a very long time :lol:

You'd be welcome to take over.

Re: Trillion Credit Squadron: The Tournament

Wow, all excellent questions... 1) Combined barrage rules count as normal, so yes 80% on some, less on others. 2) Uh... If it's not involved, and doesn't get the protection or bonuses, it doesn't count towards it, it can act purely as a node. Yes, you can theoretically create control ships much smal...

Ummm... I'm amused. We have two rather lengthy diatribes in response to a couple of people saying "You'll probably get more interest on a site that isn't devoted to MongTrav".

Seriously, don't care if you discuss here, but you will get more attention on a forum that isn't the official Mongoose one, because, you know... Mongoose. Hope that ones obvious :lol:
