Olly's BrickSpace Version 1.5 Requests

Postby Olothontor » Fri Sep 04, 2009 8:26 am

Hello, all.

I'm creating this thread because there appears to be a lot of unrest concerning the microspace rulesets.

This thread is for suggestions for my rules. I have already begun a few minor updates.

Keep in mind that if you didn't like my ruleset in the first place, don't bother trying to get me to revamp it entirely. The aesthetics of it are going to stay the same; fleets will be mildly time-consuming to build, but (supposedly) with streamlined gameplay.

I welcome all proposals and ideas.

The original BrikSpace thread is here, and the PDF is here.

Range limits for ALL weapons (except maybe rail guns).

I don't know if we have official boarding party rules, but if not, let's make them. We should also make some kind of strike craft which is unarmed but can carry boarding parties.

I has an idea:

What if, instead of scores of different weapons, class based weaponry? each class of weaponry would cost progressively more, but you'd get a pre-set limit on effectiveness points that could be put towards range, accuracy, and damage.

For example:
Class 1 weapon
Cost: 2CP
[Random ass name, like pulse laser beam autogun or some shit like that]
EP: 6(which could be spent on all the categories previously mentioned)
Damage: 1d6(plus however many EP spent)
Range: 4 inches(plus however many EP spent)
Accuracy: 1d6(plus however many EP spent)

And class 2 could have the same base numbers, but with a larger cost and more EP.

I can see that, but may I point out that it makes the process of fleet construction that much more intensive?

I'm perfectly okay with that, it's a great idea, but I figured I'd point that out.

That would be kind of monotonous, with only one weapon type in progressively larger sizes. If you want to play a simple game, limit the fleets to laser weapons only.

Not one weapon, just one system for weapons. Instead of having multiple preset weapons, just weapon classes. This allows for customization of weapons, that way you could still have your mega super duper teddy bear launching beam cannon.

So, you're suggesting I categorize the weapons by type and then assign fleets a number of weapon points per ship, that can be spent to essentially upgrade the weapons systems?

It's be like making an Exalted character.

You know what, forget it. It was a hell of a lot simpler in my head.

It seems simple enough, but alright. I'll play around with it a bit.

Good idea. I'll look into it.

Why would a missile gain effectiveness with range? Maybe if it was a hypervelocity weapon... that could be a separate type of missile.

As for lasers losing effectiveness with range, that sounds needlessly complicated for a rule set whose main selling point was that it's simpler than mine.

You need to revamp medium and large weapons completely. Heck, the main reason I made my rules in the first place was so I could say "screw you cp" and make a ship like Nemesis, which under your system would have cost me 30+ cp, which would have forced me to make it into a space station, which just isn't cool.

So, price revamping, eh? I'll look into it.
