Re: Babylon 5 Wars WC question

Wow, I didn't even know there was another zip file somewhere. My copies of those are all loose in a folder without any rules or anything. Glad you found the explanation, though!

Re: Babylon 5 Wars WC question

Wow, uh, I'm not sure what those Phase Shields were doing! It looks like they originated with Dareith's Wing Commander conversion, but I have no idea what the split is meant to represent. Maybe it is armor where the first value is against normal weapons and the second is against raking weapons? I do...

Re: Logging in for forums?

Happy Birthday, Murtalian! :D

That's a good reason to be absent for awhile! I hope you had a good day.

Re: Logging in for forums?

I checked and this was a result of how the forum software doesn't apply permissions automatically like it used to in the past. So I have to go in and manually give permissions to access things. Very strange.

Try it again and let me know if that works, murtalian!

Re: Future of the Forums

Continuing to do some moving around of things, and based off of some discussions with gstano what we may end up doing is moving all of the old content into Archives as a first step, and then I'll go through and move topics to appropriate forums from there (1E to 1E, 2E to 2E, etc.) to clear out the ...

Re: Future of the Forums

Continuing my thread spam, I have started reorganizing some of the forums discussion topics and moving things into new positions. Right now I think we're going to end up combining a single set of general VBAM discussion topics, then separate forums for each product or product family. I also created ...

Re: Future of the Forums

I've started with a little bit of reworking of the forums here, but will probably be doing some more judicious pruning as I try to go in and move topics to logical locations and figure out what we might need for long term discussion. Basically any forum that didn't have enough posts to justify its e...

Re: Future of the Forums

I wasn't aware that MJ12 had done a similar purge on their forums. Looking now, it does appear they have more or less memory-holed the old Starmada discussions to archived sub forums. If there is value to keeping separate forums specifically for VBAM 1E and 2E, then that would be easy enough to add ...

Re: Future of the Forums

To add to this, be sure to post what you would LIKE to see on the forums or Discord in the future, so we can brainstorm what we should do once the new rules are actually finished and ready to go.

Future of the Forums

I thought I would drop a quick discussion thread in here to get everyone's feelings for what we should do with the forums once the VBAM3 project is ready to be released? Do we keep the forums exactly as-is, or prune back to basically do a soft reset of everything, moving the old content into an arch...

Re: What has happened?

Completely understand, and if you installed Discord there could be a temptation to join other servers (although you wouldn't have to -- you could sit there just on the VBAM channel and never join any others). I've had some times over the last few years that I've found myself spending an inordinate a...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

LOL, well that's an interesting mistake on my part then :) And yeah, those three values sounds reasonable enough to me, based on my foggy memory of Starmada X multipliers. I remember that I figured that was the best way to represent Interceptors by making them partial Point Defense Systems, so the I...

Re: Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

You're welcome! Those were at least my take on trying to convert B5W ships over. I think they're quite a bit slower than traditional Starmada X ships, and they're not perfect, but what I played of them they were fun and seemed to capture the spirit of the original units.
