    Yeah I've got a big bloated spreadsheet with all the stats in one form or another. As far as the cannons go, what kind of stats are looking for that I didn't already layout in the last post?

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    Okay, so I need some input from someone who is better at numerical analysis then I am. I'm working to develop a mathematical process that come up with a cost in point for the weapons. One of the biggest problems I ran into with my last round of playtesting was points balance. To be blunt, a...

    at one point I was thinking about using a distance-based to hit mechanism that would be modified by the pilot's gunnery skill. So you'd have a table with distances 1-9 on the top, and Pilot Gunnery skill on the side. You compare the distance to the pilot skill, and that would give you the roll...

    One of the big things I've been advised to avoid is having too many multiple modifiers. The ideal limit is 0 but 1 level of modifiers is acceptable while 2 is tolerable and 3 is something to avoid unless I want to go full-on RPG style. Many ships have abilities that grant bonuses or confer...

    As laid out right now, the Laser Cannon is an Energy weapon. Energy weapons do full damage to shields and half damage to hull points. So 4 laser cannons shots hitting a ship with 0 shields, will inflict 2 points of damage against the hull. If it hits the shields those 4 shots would do 4 points...

    The 'effect' comes into play if you shoot the weapon at a target further away then it's 'E-distance' or "Engagement Distance". So in the case of a laser cannon, if you attack a target that is within 9" you get the full 6 shots. But if you shoot at a target that is more than 9" away you only get...

    Yes, I am still working on it, just not as often as I would like to. Between school, work, life, 2nd work, and a couple of other things, hours turn into days that turn into weeks are just way too common right now. I don't presently have anything is ready for Print-n-play, but with more and more...

    If someone wants to kitbash the Midway

    There isn't an official one so far as I know about. But when I first started work on my Star Fighters game, ChrisReid pointed me at an un-official one. Lemme see if I can find the post. Here we go.

    Wing Commander Prophecy: Secret Ops Model Update Pack

    Hey Defi, I've been away form the forums a bit so if you've explained this previously sorry for asking you to repeat it but can you explain what you mean by 'dead capships' ? I thought WCP/SO already had dead capships.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So, the first real round of play testing has been completed. I saw first real round because previous all the play testing had been either myself playing against myself, or myself and a friend, who has been largely involved in the development of the game itself. This time it was 5 people who...

    Is it possible that the confederation could have won the kilrathi war after the Battle of Earth without the Temblor Bomb or Behemoth

    There is also the point of what Thrakath said the Kilrathi would do to humanity if it won the war. At best the Madarian plan would allow a few select humans to be utilized as 'favored pets' at best.

    I gotcha. Points are just not something I'm putting that much effort into dealing with right now. Right now I'm more focused on the raw mechanics. Just to have something to put under points, I've got a spreadsheet that takes the sum of the values for the ships burn, turn, Hull Points and...

    Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trailer

    Yeah, I'm not 'invested' in it and I have no particular desire to see it. But at least Carry looks like he'll be entertaining if I happen to see the movie.

    is it a bad thing that the only thing I'm interested in with that Trailer is Carry playing Robitnik?
