Using 1E CC NPE rules in 2E

Post by mort2018confed »

Hi all. I was looking for the VBAM FB page to ask this, but I couldn't find it.

One thing that's been stopping me from doing any 2E VBAM is the lack of NPEs (that, and my heavy-duty working on SAE/SUE supplements). Now, however, after some plans on using 1E as a scenario generator for SUE games, I've gotten bitten by the VBAM bug. However, as I was a solo gamer even before Covid-19, the lack of NPE rules in 2E (and, of course, the move to the Galaxies version of the rules) has stymied any attempts in doing a 2E campaign.

What modifiers to the NPE rules from 1E would I have to make to port them over to 2E? I notice that some 1E treaty levels have been effectively combined, but the reduction of some 2E nodifiers for treaty-breaking and declarations and the increase in Intel effectiveness has made a straightforward conversion on my half.

Edit: I'm not holding out much hope about this, especially as it seems 2E has been largely superceded. Maybe I should just go back to 1E and do either SX, SAE or work on a SUE-RA conversion on my own.
