  1. @Sniddy The short answer to both of these is that I'm waiting to get hold of Neil to coordinate post-GenCon. @slk28850, hope we can meet on the battlefield next year!
  2. Played a game with some of the V3 rules.

    Yeah, trying to cite it from memory. Ops Centre (Value) While on the battlefield, and during its activation, a model with the Ops Centre MAR may attempt to regenerate a single Command Order Point. Roll a single [BLACK] D6: if the roll equals or exceeds the Value listed in the brackets, a single Command Order Point may be regenerated. This may not cause the Fleet to exceed its starting level of Command Points.
  3. Medical ships and fluff

    These ships will have extended medical capabilities, but are armed. At this point in time, they are not the classic 'hospital' ship painted white with a red cross, for example:
  4. You sure it's not radiation sickness? Seriously though, hope you get to feeling better.
  5. Played a game with some of the V3 rules.

    We are looking at using Ops Center[Value]. Roll 1d6, if the Value is greater or equal to the die roll, then regenerate a point, not to exceed the original maximum available.
  6. What is Size Class used for?

    It wasn't completely ignored, there just isn't much to say about it. We either go free form, heavies first, or heavies last. It was placed on the list of rule changes to review, and a ruling will be forthcoming.
  7. <<END RADIO SILENCE>> Well, GenCon 50 is in the books. It was a much needed 5 days away from work and life in general. It was great to meet and toss dice with several of you at the Operation Aurum Draco event. I look forward to many such events in the future. The players at GenCon were able to get the 3rd edition rules on the table, and all of them provided great feedback on what worked, what didn't, and how things ought to be changed. They also provided input on the ships that were used, and that helps as we are looking at the re-stat of things. I kept tabs on a few things, but cell coverage was not the best, so I didn't try to respond to anything. I'm going back through threads now, looking for items to address. If I miss something that you're wanting an answer to, let me know and I'll get around to it when I can. Mike
  8. Cloaks in 3.0

    Okay, so this is my last post before GenCon, it really is time for radio silence. Thanks for sticking through this guys, your ideas and feedback have been a great help here*. We've got several things to work out with cloaks as well as other mechanics. Just wanted to let you know that you've been heard, and to tune back in after GenCon. I hope to have news to share then. Or at least more time to adequately track down the answers. Mike *Actually, the feedback from everyone, on all of the topics, has been very helpful. I'm not wanting to spam the site with the same message...but know you've been heard, and change is coming. But first...I've got a Con to go to. Hope to see many of you there!
  9. 3rd Edition Scoring

    The Strategic Value MAR will be used, but limited in scope. The large capital ships are already worth more due to their inherent cost. I would expect to see this used more in specific scenarios, rather than a common MAR on ships.
  10. 3rd Edition Command Orders

    In looking at how command orders work, I can tell you that we're not going to require CO for general squadron activations. There are other changes that we could/would/should make before we go down that path.
  11. @Lord Bloodwings, thanks, I appreciate it.
  12. Reprint of older ships?

    Hey all, Was going over old comments and things to ask before I really do go dark for GenCon. Some comments were posted in another thread on some out-of-print models that people would like to see come back. Made me curious, if you could get get Spartan to reissue something, what out-of-print or hard-to-find model would you like to see? I'm not saying that any of these can or should come back; just a fun little exercise to see what models people are trying to chase down. It's been so serious and tense around here (I know, I'm at the center of it ) so maybe a lighter topic will tide everyone over for the next little while. For me, I'd like to see the Dindrenzi Praetorian, Terran Razorthorn, and Terran Tyrant make a reappearance. What's on your wish-list? Mike
  13. 3rd Edition Fleet Tactics Bonus

    It's used for any opposed dice roll. This is for turn initiative, terrain placement, and deployment.
  14. Indomitable Class Battle Carrier

    I would love to tell you. Unfortunately, I do not know. You might try and ping Neil, and see if he'll divulge anything.
