Acceleration/Deceleration on White Star

Postby Dag'Nabbit » Sat Mar 06, 2004 9:06 pm

Another random thought:

The ACC/DEC on the White Star as listed in the Minbari Fact Book is 4/4. For some reason this seems a little to slow to me. I had the feeling from the shows, and from playing B5Wars that their acceleration would be about double that of cruiser sized vessels. So for this system I am thinking about increasing the ACC/DEC to 6/6.

What does everyone think about this? Too much, or should it be even more? Is the 4/4 just right?
Yummmmm.....Flan! It's really just styrofoam. Tasty styrofoam, like twinkies, but somehow better for you.

One of the Mongoose staff said that we could use 14, so 6 is not too much :D
I don't remember which one of them, but I have read the thread about it. They pretty much forgot a '1'. :D

Hrmm, 4... 14. That's a pretty big difference!! :shock:

Now if Mother Goose (Mongoose that be) says we could use the 14, I say "Rock On!" :lol:

Now that you mention it, 14 does make sense. The white star was often seen outrunning fighters.

14 is part of the errata soon to be released. That is the 'official' accel, decel value.
