Firestorm Planetfall Designer Feedback Thread

Hi All!

 

I'm going to post the Firestorm Planetfall Force Lists for the Core-6 a little earlier than intended. The Firestorm Armada Beta Group has just had their rules/starting stats issued, which gives me time to redirect to FSPF Force Lists.

 

I am aiming to get the other 5 Factions to you all by Monday the 8th (11 days ahead of schedule!) so that everyone can give the new system a try and hopefully provide some feedback in Battle Reports. :P

 

Cheers,

Derek

Will the Heroes of Tarxon VI be usable? I just got the medium dindrenzi tanks on ebay for 99p!

If I was teasing, I would say that this is rather one year late than 11 days ahead of the planning... But of course, I won't...

Wait & see, nice to see that things are finally moving.

I agree. Heroes inclusion would be a nice addition to those who supported this game from it's infancy.

Ready to go with the statistics release.

Just have to read them over one more time...... lol....

Luckily I have you lot to be my proof readers!:D

 

I don't expect them to be perfect, as I have been frantically drawing together all the feedback data from my design team.

I'm looking forwards to getting them out there, but one more check over cant hurt.

 

Chat Soon!

Sweet!!! @Spartan Derek !!!

I am thrilled to see the timeline is still good. It gives me hope for the full release date. 

I can't wait to pit Hawker VS RSN :)

BTW, is there any chance of a sneaky peak at any of the new models? Just a WIP shot of something, computer renders would be great, to help boost the excitement. 

Thanks for all your hard work Spartan Derek

Here is something I have for our early stage concepts on the Hawker.:ph34r:

There have been quite a few revisions since then....the weapon systems have changed on the Large....we aren't using the APC just now..... the Mobile Gun Platform is testing as being a bit bigger.....but the Small Tank and the Medium Tank are finished!:D....you get the idea though.

My noble Terrans are going to love these guys!:wub:

Awesome thanks for sharing!!

Well the small and medium tanks definitely look like they could be allies of the Terrans. 

The APC looks cool though a bit like a squashed Directorate APC. The Mobile weapons platform is an awesome idea, hopefully different turret options. 

That Heavy looks super intimidating, the Big Skull Face with weapons rising out of its back, nice. 

I look forward to seeing the final result and any other previews you might be able to share. Thanks again

WOW 

 

Love the AA Platform (Not Sure Terrans need anymore AA but will free up Shield Tanks)

Love the Medium Tank is like a Hemidal but snazzier

Love the Light reminds me of the APCs from the Fallout Games which I love.

Not convinced yet on the Large

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait for Orbats I broke the paints and brushes out in anticipation last night.

As promised, I've uploaded the design stat docs for all Core 6 Factions, including the Core Helixes for the Alliance Nations.

These can be found on the first post of this thread for ease of reference.

 

Bear in mind these are still under test, so don't get your gaming-knickers in a twist if you think something isn't fair/balanced/is invalidating your existence, etc :P

These have been posted to give everyone an idea of where we are going with the game in the future.

I also don't expect them to stand up to too much proof-scruitinty....as we aren't at that stage in development yet.

However I am of course open to comments regarding inconsistencies etc, as the more eyes we have on documents the better for the game in general IMO.

 

If you do have any GAMING FEEDBACK (...and I hope you do, otherwise whats the point of giving you the information...:D.....), please put it in the Battle Reports section of the Planetfall Forum, where I will respond! Remember your gaming feedback WILL make a difference to our process as we develop the game further. ...So get rollin' and killin' stuff!!!

 

 

Cheers

Derek

 

 

ps...now perhaps chrisburn can get some work done this afternoon....

Nope work is on hold while a gleefully read through these. 

Quick question from the Terrans do you attached all specialist tanks now? Or can you still take Mk 1s in squadrons of 2 as a separate unit? Helix says attach but Mk 1s still have a squadron size of 2.

Very happy at Guardsmen being Mulit-role as fits the models looks. :)

Thanks very much.

According to the MAR descriptions, Hover Vehicle and Hard Target are now cumulative (but you need to have an activation marker to get the Hover Vehicle effect). 

Light skimmers with cloaking will be harder to kill !

Only to a max of - 2

Before they got the - 1at LR all the time so some trade off. Personally think this way is better stops the Dinzi sniper lines but subtlety plays into their strengths i.e they should be activating first so get a chance to protect as much as they can. 

Spotted another error @Spartan Derek

The Terran Odin has both a Primary and Secondary Shrike rotor cannons and no Raptor Grenade Launchers but still has the option of equipping Nuke warheads.
