Personally, given how shields are explained and fighters function per the current rules, I'm inclined to assume that shields tend to be 'bubbles' with the ship inside. Hence the 'ignores shields' IF the mecha can land on the ship...(ie, survive the AFB and other counter fire involved) I think the l...

Why do I suddenly have the image of the shields "pancaking" the mecha against the hull? Know that down right hilarious :lol: . Since the shockwave is an extension of the shields (more or less), if the mecha are inside of the shield then neither shockwave or ionic will be effective as poin...

Selective targeting = bad. OK I agree selective targeting bad idea, But just a thought. Point Defense and AFB should still be effective against them I'd think, plus enemy mecha would be a threat/ needed counter. But glad to know I hadn't lost my mind about the same hex thing. I'd agree with the cos...

VBAM: Starmada actually provides rules for defenses against various weapon types, based somewhat on the shield system. Instead of one shield rating against everything, you have a specific defense level against K/E/M.


Cool, But does VBAM play exacly like Starmada or is its own game system?

I still don't see how mecha could have an advantage over fighters in this regard. You seem to be under the impression that fighter craft would operate under "Wing Commander Physics", when a fighter built for the practically unrestricted Newtonian motion of space would be able to pull off ...

Who? Jankowski was the captain of the Prometheus, the cruiser that led the mission into Minbari space and, by his stupidity and hubris, almost killed off humanity. EarthForce already knew of his incompetence (Omega Incident), but he obviously had some pretty strong patrons, as he survived it. Not m...

PDS ?

According to SX V.2 Point Defense System says on a 1,3 or 5 shield rolls against a starship auto fail. This seems a bit vauge, a PDS working against everything? Maybe there needs to be a seperate PDS per type of defensive need? Like a PDS against missile/slug, and a PDS against energy weapons or eve...

I really think that, while Starmada is generic and should handle anything you can throw at it, the issue is really scale. Basically, at a capital-ship scale, mecha aren't going to act much differently than fighters -- perhaps with a special ability or two. This is what I had in mind in the first pl...

OK Know I think we`re getting somewhere! :D What about Mecha having to roll for penetration, if succeded they are abile to roll damage to a specific location, a weapon battery or special equip, engine or hull
