I'm crossing my fingers for Mass Effect :D Star Wars, BSG, Farscape or Trek wouldn't really inspire me enough to get into it, although I like the programmes/films, I don't think they'd hold my interest as a game. Mass effect would be good, the codex in the game gives good descriptions about how spa...

Reckon Mass effect could be a contender.
Mass effect guns are boresight, beams are short ranged but pierce sheilds. Only the big ships have Mass effect guns. If you read the codex in the game, it gives the different tactics used by the races.

The Mass effect universe suits the ACTA rules quite well & it has serveral races with there own styles.

Minefields

Just thinkin maybe the defending should have the opytion of purchasing minefield as well as ships,Def sats & bases. Thinkin a patrol buys x amount of counters of which half are dummy. Scouts should be able to scan them to show which are real & which aren't. They would have stealth of 5 or 6 so you c...

I hope the new version has a to hit roll & then an armour like VaS. I'd go even further with only having a small crew score which is only damaged by crits. I like the crew score as is personally :) I personally hate it how you have to minus different numbers, it far easier & quicker to only have th...

It won't matter about license for year or 2 as we won't be getting anything more than P&P in that time frame. Why pay for a license when you aren't going to be putting out much new stuff anyway?

This could be quite exciting, it has points system. Might mean we will able port the stats across from our fleet book's.

It's sounds whitestars are having the same issue vorchans do.
Whitestars may need to be skirmish (make them more swarmish) & make skirmish ship raid whatever it is.

The squadron idea is good, the first ship or squadron wouldn't be at negative & command will help a lot more. The theory is if some takes a swarm of little ships vs a few big ships basically the swarm is going to lose intiative nearly all the time. Drazi shouldn't be to badly off as they do have jun...

We base our's off crew score & works extremely well cause crew scores are meant to be balanced cause hits on ships like explorer throw things out. Having it based on priority lvl just isn't the way to go. Worked it out it's been about 2 years of having redundancy, we have no where the balance issues...

compaered to a 6" burst that has AP, TD and ignores all the same? ok maybe you will get more targets but a 6AD e-mine against hull 6 ships with this will get one hit. not exactly overpowered. The extra area is huge compared to the normal e-mine (40%). It gets way more targets. I personaly think e-m...

Don't really think the varients are needed. There needs to be less e-mines rather than more (not getting at the narn). It's too hard to balance things that ignore traits completely & thats why e-mines are hard to get right. They either work too well or not well enough. I actually think the wide burs...
