  1. Actually (yield*20)+1000*number of plant IS the formula I'm using. The other one was one I use for like Iron mines and such. but in any case both hydro and geothermal is what I needed to know, thanks. Now to colonize that ideal world...and fix my eyes.
  2. OUTPUT = (# OF POWER PLANTS)*(RESOURCE YIELD-(# OF POWER PLANTS/10)) Seems to be accurate on my Homeworld.
  3. ...hope I haven't ask this question before... Does the Geothermal Power Plant use the same formula to figure who much power it generates per plant on a particular planet as the Hydroelectric Power Plant?
  4. Psst...pssssst...dude, ya got anything? You know, you got any, you know, good stuff? I need some man, I need some bad! Shakes, man, I got the shakes bad, man.....
  5. What is this "postal" that you speak of?
  6. Yes I yahoo and yes I got my turn Friday. No big deal, usually do My Supernova turn on Friday and start on my Takamo turns Saturday....
  7. NO TURNS FOR ME!!! Guess I'm Friday.....
  8. Using a SURV when you don't know the rating (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,...omg) is to me a possible waste of an action. Unless your scout can crack anything. Some of mine (older single Pathfinders) can't even crack a "C". MOVE,SURV,WARP is also a no-no unless I KNOW I can crack the warp point. MOVE,SURV,WARP,SS,SURV is a pipedream for now...or a lot of wasted actions. "What do you mean I can't jump through the warp?? I did the survey first so I could warp!" "Sorry you fail your survey. Your race is still too stupid." "But I'm suppose to system survey and do a warp survey in the next system! Lord and Master and Torturer For Anything That Displeases is expecting my report...or it is off with my head!!" "What can I say...You're screwed! Ahahahahahahahahahahaha....." ....you are talking about doing this as a series of these action by a single fleet in a turn...right? Otherwise.... Nevermind
  9. Thanks Pete! Now I know...till I forget....
  10. Ok, been in a battle, have damaged ships. 1.) Do ships repair themselves? Or must there be a repair bay located in the fleet somewhere? 2.) How do I determine if a previously damaged ship has returned to 100%? 3.) How do I xfer JUST the damaged ships in a fleet to another fleet? [I don't think this can be done with the current orders but added it as a dirty look at Pete and Russ.😒] 4.) Anything about damaged ships and fleets that I didn't ask but should know about... The only thing I can find in the rules and the Naval Combat supplement is: So... 5.) How do you know if a damaged ship needs to be placed into a shipyards or needs specialized repair facilities? Is the Repair Bay the necessary specialized facility? 6.) How you even PLACE a ship back in the shipyard for repairs? ...wonder if Pete and Russ have any hair left on the heads....my questions have questions....
  11. I have met the enemy (DMX #9999) and though I look like I got ran over by a run away train, you should see the other guy!! Battle was at the warp point that they enter my home system, and apparently camped out at. In the metal head corner we have 1 minelayer and 6 light cruisers, sporting Selenite Battle Weave, Pulse Laser CIDS, and Light Sonic Disruptors, and the Burst Mine Racks of course. In the Baby Seal corner we have 12 Assault Frigates, 3 Heavy Cruisers, and a Bantam Assault Carrier in a pear tree....sorry lost the train of thought there...sporting the lesser Titanium Composite Armor but weapons were on par power wise. Baby Seals had Fighters and Drones, Tin Men had mines. Final tally: Machine Heads - 7 destroyed ships Baby Seals - Assault Frigates: 5 crippled/5 destroyed; Heavy Cruisers: 1 Light Damage/1 Medium Damage; Bantam Assault Carrier: 1 destroyed So killed 7, lost 6, and once again in control of Warp Point. Really don't understand a lot of the wheres' and whys' of the battle. And I don't see a mechanism to separate damaged from undamaged ships when doing a RN. Soooo....footwork and misdirection I guess. Ut mea gramina!!
  12. Use Smartdraw. Not free, sad face here. But works. And yea, fleets are shown on map. Remember the Starweb days of redrawing the map over and over again by hand as connections were discovered.
  13. I wish mine was...sigh
  14. WOW! Thanks! I think I'm feeling better now. 😎
  15. Do characters "stack up"? If I have multiple characters in a fleet or army, do they ALL contribute to the fleet/army? Or just the highest ranking one?
