Re: Convoy Names

The civilian units would then be Colony Convoy, Transport Convoy and (if used) Merchant Convoy.


Make that Trade Convoy.

I knew Merchant didn't sound right, but I couldn't think of the right term right then.

Re: Convoy Names

My thoughts on Civilian Fleet vs Convoy naming are to make the civilian units be convoys and military uses fleets. Thus a Transport Convoy would be a civilian unit, where as a Transport Fleet would be 2-4 Military Transports, which have a different function. The civilian units would then be Colony C...

Re: Excel Question

It should actually be:
=COUNTIF(F2:F100,C2)>=1

Re: Excel Question

Go into Conditional Formatting and choose "Use a formula to determine which cells to format".

In the formula enter the following "=COUNTIF(F2:F100,C2)>1", where C2 is the cell you are testing and F2:F100 is the column you are testing against.

Re: Second Edition is Coming in the Year 3000

As a follow up, I have integrated Jimmy's advice into the rules. Bases, minefields, and ground forces that are built using planetary construction sources are now completed on the same turn that they are fully paid for. This makes it easier for a player to quickly build up bases and troops in their ...

Re: Second Edition is Coming in the Year 3000

I cannot find it in the current rev of the rules, but is there a limit on how many fighters can be based at a Planetary Fighter Garrison?

Re: Second Edition is Coming in the Year 3000

Why would Utilized Productivity control how much you can spend in this respect? It does not affect Productivity Investment. To me, it should only control how much can be built per turn. It also does not seem fair. With a 3 UP system, it takes 5 turns to just pay for a 15 EP base, then another 8 tur...

Re: Second Edition is Coming in the Year 3000

One issue I have with the last ruleset I received (with the current playtest) is with 3.6.2 Planetary Construction Planetary construction covers all of the production that takes place in a system that doesn’t require a Shipyard and its slipways. This includes bases, minefields, and ground forces. Th...

Re: The Glorious Stars Playtest

I would like to make a proposal that might make some things simpler. Can we get a Topic set up as "Glorius Stars Notes" or somesuch name, and make it a Sticky in the Second Edition Development, or down in the Private Campaign Forums. It would be locked so only Jay could post to it. The fir...

Re: The Glorious Stars Playtest

I am just curious, on the GS_Systems spreadsheet, column G is listed as JMP. Is this Jump Lanes? The values listed do not seem to match the map.

What is this value?

Re: May 2013 Development Update

When calculating space available for ships, do you round up when adding in the TL bonus? For example, a C$11 unit (CC2), has a base space available of 26 spaces. This unit at TL 5 (125%) has a space amount of 32.5. Does this round up to 33 spaces, just like special abilities round up before multiply...

The other questions I meant to ask are:
How long does it take to construct bases and facilities?

What is the DV for the Shipyard and Supply Depot?

Re: May 2013 Development Update

I have been looking for it again, but I can't find it. Did you say that a starship with Supply (1) would be able to supply 10 CC of starships? If this is so, I would SERIOUSLY consider changing the starship special ability back to Cargo to avoid confusion. This way, we could write out Cargo (2) carr...
