    I think accomplishing nothing was the point. Everyone in the movie accomplished nothing. Or at least, everyone failed. When thinking on those terms, the movie ends up making a lot of sense. 
    Poe lost their entire bomber fleet.
    Finn/Rose didn't save the day
    Rey failed in turning Kylo
    Kylo failed in recruiting Rey
    Luke failed Ben.
    Luke even failed at burning a tree.
     
    In the end, the resistance is what, 20 people? Less? 
     
    I've been skimming these posts, so I might have missed it... but the boy in the end, he had the force right?

    Zeta QGJ lead is really good for pve, especially the lightside hardmodes. They dont seem to have enough punch for territory battles though, my rebel team still far out performs them.

    The whole Tarkin argument just does not make any sense to me.
    Lets assume just for a moment everyone in Rebels lives. That puts the number of non-inquisitor force wielders alive in the galaxy at what, 10? 50? There were an estimated 10,000 jedi before order 66, which did not include force sensitives. So even if 100 were alive by the time of Rogue One (but the Empire has been actively hunting force sensitives), you're looking at 1% or less of the previous numbers. Of those, how many can actually be classified as Jedi? 
    If the entire Jedi order (as an organization) is destroyed and 99.9% of their members killed, I think you can safely call the Jedi extinct..... at least in terms of threat analysis which is all Tarkin was doing.

    Imo, a piece of actual glass would work best. I would strategically place the tower tiles to be the support.
    The amount of cast resin required would be astronomical an extraordinarily difficult to get bubble free. You would need the variety with near zero shrinkage and non-yellowing, which is considerably harder to work with (and more expensive). Plus the refraction on that thickness would be quite severe. 
    Glass is also incredibly scratch resistant.

    If you go the reed switch route, I'd wire it on the battery. I'm not sure how much you would gain to be able to charge it while its off since the current draw on the whole system is around 66ma, and usb is at 500ma.
    Looking at the qduino's spec, you should have 7 pwm pins. 13/11/5/3/9/6

    Very nice. I especially like sneaking in the usb port.
    To increase battery life, what you could do is add in a vibration sensor and tie it to one of the interrupt pins. This would let you put the engine lights into a dim mode (via pwm) and go to full brightness for X seconds after it detects motion, and even put the duino into low power mode after X minutes of no motion.

    treybert got a reaction from Rogue_Group1 in 1-Attack Die ships?   
    I just thought of an interesting mechanic for 1-attack ship swarms:
     
    "After performing an attack, place 1 swarm token next to the defender."
     
    and
     
    "After you execute a maneuver that causes you to overlap another friendly swarm ship, you may immediately take a free action"
     
     
    Swarm Tokens:
    For each swarm token, the owner reduces their agility value by 1, to a minimum of zero. At the end of the round, remove all swarm tokens.
     
    Perfect for this guy:

    treybert got a reaction from haslo in Dice Roller 3000   
    This question has been bugging me for ages: are the dice really fair? So I set out on a method to roll each die several thousand times. The end result is the Dice Roller 3000.
     

     

     
     
    I'm using Lego mindstorms to roll a single die. It then presses my keyboard to trigger the webcam to take a pic.
     
    The 2 motions on the cup motion have a randomized speed. There is a cross beam which also acts as the pivot point in which the die will hit when leaving and entering the neck of the bottle. This is to ensure some level of randomness.
     
    The software I'm using is Adaptive Vision Studio Lite. It's a nice free option and quite powerful. The lite version is limited to 30 minutes program run time, so I do all the processing after the fact. The blue box in the lower left is actually checking for 'rectangularity'. If done right, the die should always reveal a triangle face. On very rare occurrences, I noticed the die was either still bouncing when the camera clicked, or somehow magically landed resting on an edge. In either case, the overall shape turns more rectangley which is easy to check for.
     
    From there, I get a big text file with evade, blank, focus, or error. I throw out the errors, and perform a Chi-square test.
     
     
    Here are the results so far:
     
    Observed /  Expected / Difference
     
     
    Green01
    -----------------------
    Evade : 2120 / 2111.625 / 0%

    Total: 14809
    P value: 0.957 - fair
     
    Any P value below 0.05 would be considered significant, meaning the die is most likely unfair. Thus any value above 0.05 is considered fair.
     
    Results as I get them.
     
    -edit-
    Also, I made some corrections to die 1 and 2. I wrote another script to sort all the blanks, evades, and focus results into their own folders. Then I was able to manually adjust the false identifications quickly. That turns green01 to 0.5, instead of 0.18.
    The Blank classification was the default. That and I was having some problems with my rig. Now that I'm sorting though, the results are significantly more accurate.
     
    Green04 added. While technically not below .05, i think based on the other results, we can conclude this one is definitely not balanced. But I'm labeling each die for further testing
