Re: Some Noob Questions

Hi Orok, I wasn't able to find answers in the errata or in my campaign book to your question. So this isn't an official answer. However the unofficial answer is that in practice, Trade, Transport and Colony Fleets have different values. If you're creating your own ships to use, you can assign them d...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

Was digging through the FedCom forum, found this post by Steve from Dec 2010, pretty funny: Let me be clear about a few things... 1. Jay is a great game designer, and I've never said anything less about him. No one from ADB has ever said a critical word about the DESIGN of Fed Admiral http://www.sta...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

We plan to release it as a PDF only for probably at least a year. It will need a lot of player input before it stabilizes. It is too big with too many moving parts. The original design was not adequately playtested, and we're doing more playtesting now, but really it's three (or ten) separate games...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

:roll: weird. If I'm picking up a book again, I look anywhere on the page, and in about 2 seconds I'm orientated and can skip to the newer portion. One doesn't need a system to do that. Or at least not in my experience. Yeah, been talking with some guys on BGG about the F&E Combat system. Their ...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

Remember this post from 2010: Remember that ADB isn't designing FA, we're more or less just publishing what Jay wrote. The delay is simply that the book is GIGANTIC and that just pounding through the formatting without trying to add, delete, or edit a single word just took about 100 time as much wor...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

To be fair, he does finish off by speaking highly of the mission system but with caveats. Yeah the mission system is the one thing he has consistently promoted, though from the draft he's shown he has made changes to it. Changes to specific missions and also have missions are scored. Some of the ch...

Re: Chouka Fleet

Did a pen and marker sketch tonight, based roughly on the Chouka Bishop Warship. The perspective isn't too tight and the details are very different, being more squarish than round. But thought it turned out pretty decent. http://img09.deviantart.net/611d/i/2016/239/c/a/star_cruiser__1___chouka_bisho...

Re: Your Wishlist for Companion and First Contact?

Sounds cool. Maybe you can get it in the 2e equivalent of menagerie. Another thought for Special Abilities & Robotech. I wonder about, simulating some sort of slow-firing Super Weapon for a ship ala the Macross Cannon or the Starblazer Yamato main gun. Like maybe: Supergun(X) Add AS value equal ...

Re: Your Wishlist for Companion and First Contact?

Yeah with the Ramming Prow I was thinking something like Battlefleet Gothic conversions, or perhaps even Noble Armada, where age of sail style of combat and tactics seem to be pretty dominant. But as you mention, think there are a lot of things where a Ram Prow could prove essential. Will try to kee...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

Update: According to Jean Sexton, Tony and his friends didn't "playtest" Federation Admiral, they only "played" it. Because playing and giving feedback doesn't count as playtesting if their names are not on Jean's magic and never disclosed "list of playtesters" https://...

Re: Steel Castles sourcebook in the yards!

Cool. Maybe a ship like the Arethusa would have the Carrier trait as well, representing that it's a Destroyer Leader (if you went the DD for Fighters route). Similarly maybe some of the destroyer leaders, like the Marksman or Faulknor classes would be represented as ships. Assuming that one only wan...
