This topic is to be used for:
1. Things the staff needs to tell you.
2. Things that apply across the board, not to any given empire.
3. The latest attempt to do all of the bases over again (what, the fifth or sixth time?)

Please do not post things here that are specific to a single empire as those should go in the empire's topics.

when will we get a new update SITS files

By Steve Cole (Stevecole) on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 04:01 pm: Edit

When i have time, which is not now. There is only so much F&E time and it is going into new products, not SIT updates.

ok Thanks

At Origins 2013 there was some discussion with SVC about the cost for light escorts being changed to 0.5EP for conversion and for the production surcharge. Has this discussion progressed any. I don't want to consider this an official change until such time as SVC declares it an official change.

What's the word?

By Steve Cole (Stevecole) on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - 12:51 am: Edit

It is (I thought) being tested. It has NOT been approved or implemented and might never be. If it is, you'll hear it from me not anyone else.

By Thomas Mathews (Turtle) on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - 06:32 am: Edit

Lar and I are testing the .5 EP surcharge and conversion cost for light escorts in a game now.

We're using it in The Sabre Strikes and All Quiet on the Western Front.

Cool. I just hadn't heard anything on the topic since Origins and wasn't sure where to ask. But I know that this is where the biggest effect will happen. Updating all the SITs.

Just asking why all of the SIT's that grew out of the older ones are still showing carrier groups while the new ISC one is not. Any reason for this? It would overall save about 2 to 3 pages if all the groups were removed.

By Steve Cole (Stevecole) on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 09:52 pm: Edit

Because group counters are still out there and being used.

By Keith Plymale (Zaarin7) on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 10:05 pm: Edit

Oh okay thank you sir. I figured there was a reason.

So we just discovered that apparently, Base Stations are better at EW than Battle Stations.

Somehow, a Kzinti, Fed, or Klingon Base Station gets to use 2EW points while maintaining a full 10 point attack factor. On the other hand, a Kzinti, Fed, or Klingon BATS has to drop to a 9 point attack factor from a 12 to use 2EW points. This makes no sense.

Is this intentional? A typo? An error?

I fully realize that the intention is that the Kzinti/Fed/Klingons get an EW advantage on a BS just like on a BATS, but there should clearly be *some* sort of reduction of attack factors to use more EW, given that the BATS has some sort of reduction of attack factors to use more EW.

The last "General Units" SIT is dated 26/12/06. Is there a newer one? Thanks.

By Ryan Opel (Ryan) on Tuesday, July 08, 2014 - 01:57 pm: Edit

The General Units have been incorporated into the individual empire SITS.

By Keith Plymale (Zaarin7) on Tuesday, July 08, 2014 - 03:05 pm: Edit

Oh okay thanks. That makes more sense. I'll toss the older ones.

By Steve Cole (Stevecole) on Saturday, August 02, 2014 - 09:38 am: Edit

I know we need to update the SITs and I will talk with the staff soon about trying to do that a little at a time.

But let me be clear.

1. NO ONE but me is authorized to issue errata, rulings, or changes to the SIT.

2. NO ONE is authorized to create and post their own SIT, not even for a private campaign.

3. Unless they were printed in Captains Log there are no changes to the current SIT.

4. I have NOT agreed to change the Aegis surcharge for small escorts. Maybe someday but it has NOT happened. So any proposed or purported errata to that effect is wrong and void.

By Randy Blair (Randyblair) on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 10:01 am: Edit

Any update on SIT update progress?

The elephant is best eaten one bite at a time.
