Is the stellar fortress card an entire 8.5"x11" sheet?

Fleet Scale yes. Squadron Scale might actually have to be 11"x17' the thing is massive.

Shields Banks are 96 per arc and it usually comes standard with 4 hangar bay and 2 Gunboat Moduals. (Thats 24 fighters and 12 gunboats and 12 Admin Shuttles.) Even the Armorband is 80 units thick.

The card was done in 2010 but it's got too much work-product invested in it to give it away in Communique. It needs to go into a real product. (It alsmost went into reinforcements instead of the ground bases.)

I was glad to get the ground bases. How many of those stellar fortresses could there be anyway?

If they make a mini for it... I know someone who'd bye as many as the Federation built.
After all, one's force must be WYSIWYG! Cool

Just coming back to the subject of the OP for a sec - how hard would it be to put the rules into the electronic Reference Rulebook on e23....isn't one of the benefits of the e23 channel that we can do this?

Then for those who have already purchased the electronic RRB, they get the rules they should have had in the first place? It's not the customer's fault that the rules were missing....

They should have been in the Reinforcements Attack rulebook, not the RRB.

Those rules are not in the RRB because those rules didn't exist when the RRB was last done.

What is an OP?

And it would not be hard to add it to e23 RRB.

OP in this context refers to the Original Post - the message that started the thread. However, it usually refers to the Original Poster - the person who started the thread. In this case, me Wink

Too bad those who bought the print version of the rulebook should have to do without new rules.

Could they be given the opportunity to pay an upgrade fee to also receive the electronic version?

The way e23 works the "upgrade fee to also get the electronic version" is the same as the fee to buy the electronic version.

Guys, we've been doing rulebooks for 44 years and there's always going to be another expansion, another update, another bit of errata. Hard copy rulebooks just work that way. The real world works that way. Back when I was working as a construction engineer all of our manuals, steel books, parts catalogs, and everything else were updated and replaced every year and were (technically) already obsolete when they arrived.

Does e23 notify buyers when upgrades are made so they will know to log in and receive them?

Final question: Have any updates been done to the 6th edition electronic rulebook?
