  1. Re: It's almost 5AM and I'm thinking about Space Combat I think if you look through TE and STK you'll find that ship weapon systems don't have range modifiers. That's left up to the targetting system that is purchased for the vessel. I believe in TE the standard targetting systems are written up as +4, +8 and +12 vs. Range Modifier but, of course, you can make them whatever you want. As I understand it, the scale is 1" to 1", so a Dreadnaught wouldn't even fit on your standard battle mat. However, how much maneuvering and jinking is one of those ships going to do during a fight? Is it important to have them on the map at all? Capital ship to capital ship battles are basically slugfest where they hurl as much of their battery at each other as they can. range isn't really a factor considering the DCV penalties for size as well as the targetting system PSLs. Obviously, fighter combat works better on a battle mat. Given the average SPDs and Flight of most fighters from TE, you can very easily dogfight at the 1" to 1" scale, or at least make it a 2 for 1.
  2. Re: It's almost 5AM and I'm thinking about Space Combat Like I said, I've worked out a similar system using the custom Martial Arts section of UMA but using the same points system. If you haven't taken a look at it already it might be of interest to you. The system I developed is open ended to allow for modifications and expansions while still keeping it all balanced.
  3. Re: It's almost 5AM and I'm thinking about Space Combat I wrote a Piloting Maneuvers article for Digital Hero (http://www.herogames.com/digitalHero/Samples/DH19.jsp) that adds Martial Maneuvers to ship to ship combat.

  11. Re: Musings on Random Musings I'm sick of all the paranoia. Instead of publically scrutinizing someone, why not just ask the moderator for an IP check. But I guess that's just not as "fun".

  13. Re: Longest Running Thread EVER There's 30 seconds I'll never get back! *shakes fist at you
  14. Re: Longest Running Thread EVER No worries. I admit I was a bit peeved at the complainers ("crybabies" was an unfair word to use and I apologize for using it) and you just happened to be the last straw. I also apologize for being snarky and I believe you completely understand the reasons for my actions. So, we coo?
