    Atmosphere

    Which has nothing at all to do with Star Wars. Seriously though. The flight path system is already HEAVILY abstract. It aims to capture the dramatic feel of Star Wars combat, not be a simulation of how that combat is depicted in the films, much less of real world physics. As such, I don’t see a need to modify the rules much at all. Create a few new types of obstacles and use different mat and you’re good. Anything else seems like change just for changes sake. Now, adding in ground forces....

    Large Ships for the Galactic Republic

    The classic trek series and the refit from films 1-3. Then it was self destructed in 3 and they introduced the “A” at the very tail end of 4, which was an entirely new ship. That’s what the “A” was meant to indicate. Interestingly, while the refit was nominally the same ship, I have always heard that the refit was so extensive, they designated it as a new ship class. So the classic series enterprise was a constitution class and the film version an Enterprise class, despite being the same ship, technically. Perhaps they should have designated it the Thesius class.

    I think he meant the classic series enterprise and the refit done for TMP and just mixed up the “A” designation.

    The new lock system

    Having way over purchased 1st ed core sets, I want to avoid multiple of 2nd like the plague. Already have more damage dice than I can use More x-wings and tie fighters than I need acrylic templates and tokens 2 damage decks from getting the promo deck i mean, why on earth would I buy a second core set.

    The A-wing is where they dropped the ball

    I haven’t really been following this thread, just jumped in and read the last page on a lark, but what about a 3 die missile that takes 2 charges to fire and regens the charge, so it can fire every other round? Would encourage hit and fade attacks, which is something the a-wing is supposed to be good at.

    Large Ships for the Galactic Republic

    Well, I just loaded those 2 pictures into photoshop and played around with them a bit. Bizarrely, when I scale them so that the droid and cockpit are the same size, the REBEL version is just a little bit longer.

    U-Wings in 2.0

    The couple games I played against them, that ability to rotate on the stop is surprisingly effective. I’d kill for that ability on a lambda.

    Large Ships for the Galactic Republic

    Yeah, I agree. I did just look them both up on wookieepedia though, and it does list a length difference. 16 meters for the ones from ANH and 23 something for the republic ones.

    There is apparently some references to it having extended engine cowlings, making it longer that the stripped down ones in ANH. I think that’s where he’s coming from.

    The new lock system

    I haven’t, but them I’m not using ordnance much. If its a real issue, I imaging custom lock tokens would help emphasize that the token next to your target is YOURS.

    MONSTERPOCALYOPSE!!!

    I'm just using a bunch of old, 1st ed buildings and counting them as apartment buildings for now. Don't get the tactical depth, but at least it looks good.

    MONSTERPOCALYOPSE!!!

    Should be good, if you have like minded opponents. The big draw of the game for me is the spectacle, having a full city set up just looks so cool.

    MONSTERPOCALYOPSE!!!

    I found them super easy to assemble. Painting them, that’s another issue. Got a game in tonight, really came down to the wire. His Gorgy was at 2 HT, my Def-X at 1. I tried to run away so that I could finish him off with my units but he swatted a g-tank into my face. Game Over. I am so so looking forward to getting more than just apartment buildings to smash.
