Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Strike Cruisers and the Cruiser (and Destroyer) Gap I'm taking liberties by doubling the Beijing tonnage, but it fits in more with my narrative of the evolution of the Confederation Navy. I've also dropped the adjective Deep. Battlecruisers were an evolution of the armoured crui...

Re: [High Guard] Weapon and component questions

1. Jump programmes need to be written at a corresponding technological level, maybe because of the compiler? 2. All you then need is a computer with enough bandwidth, not necessarily the corresponding technological level; so it's definitely not an issue of performance, just RAM. 3. You need a large ...

Life support is really the lynchpin.

Other than that, you can squeeze in as much as the carbon dioxide scrubbers can take.

Re: [Deneb Sector] 2000 dT Huscarle Cruisers

This issue is just being rehashed. I didn't care if meson bays are canon within the Third Imperium or not, what annoyed me was the inconsistency. Ship designs published by the current rights holder are considered canon, and an example of how ships should be designed: so if you incorporate meson bays...

Re: [Deneb Sector] 2000 dT Huscarle Cruisers

It would make more sense if they'd just be listed as restricted military technology, considering that the meson sled tends to be integral in previous dirtside canon. I would have just increased the costs, financially and energetically, to limit the numbers onboard warships, if that had been the auth...

Mongoose First required a technology level thirteen computer to go beyond a hundred kay tonnes.

Whereas in Classic, computer factor seven at technology level thirteen limited you to a megatonne.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

The battlestars are supposedly hybrid battleship carriers; Deadlock seems to be exploring other warship classes, optimized to more specialized roles.
