And one more for the night...

There are mentions throughout WEG material of Imperial capital ships being equipped with landing barges, able to land up to a thousand troopers, or an entire Imperial Army battalion in a single drop. But no images or stats.

He does indeed. It sometimes amazes me how much unpaid work artists are willing to put in purely out of love for the setting. I suppose my own work falls into a similar category, though, so I expect I understand it better than I realize.

Also, here's a list of the ships I want to get done, but have yet to finish off. I'll most likely be saving the largest ships to the last, unless someone has a burning need (and a sufficiently toothsome bribe).

EDIT: Moved To-Do List to original post

I've read through the Battery Dice topic and was thinking about how I wanted to respond to it.

I happened across this again and realized I didn't reply to it as thoroughly as it deserved.

Quote:
For me, I don't see how the coordination rules lead to Star Destroyers out powering the Death star, as the number of weapons any one officer can coordinate is limited to their Command skill per 2nd Edition rules RAW.

Ship operations aren't subject to the Command skill rules, per se. Here's a quote from the 2R&E Rulebook, pgs. 246-247:
    Each ship has one prime person responsible for keeping control, running sensors, calculating hyperspace jumps and the like. On smaller ships, one person may be responsible for all of these duties, while on larger ships, one person may be in charge of each of these functions. While there might be hundreds of support crew manning the machinery, whether the action succeeds comes down to one character's skill roll - hence the crew skill listing.
So basically, one person in charge of all the ship's guns, regardless of how many assistants and support crew he has under his control, and that's what the Crew Skill represents. It's essentially a pre-calculated Skill + Coordination Bonus - any penalties for the complexity of the task, all for the purposes of simplifying combat.

Quote:
Still trying to wrap my mind around the implementation of the Battery Dice. For me it still seems easiest to just use the existing coordination rules, allocate a set number of turrets based on the gunnery officer commanding them, and then just roll that limited amount. I don't need to fire every weapon an NPC ship has - just enough to make life difficult for my PCs.

The problem there is that, unless you're using some of my modified stats, capital ships pretty much have to do massed fire in order to have a chance of overcoming the scale modifiers. Under the RAW, the turbolasers on an ISD have a -6D penalty to hit a Starfighter-Scale target, so the only way to hit something is to spam-fire every cannon you've got, saturating the target's general vicinity in the hopes of hitting something.

W/r/t the Coordination rules, the RAW doesn't explicitly state that the bonuses can be applied to Damage, but other rules indicate that it does happen. Consider, for example, the stats for Starfighter-Scale laser cannon. The single laser cannon on a YT-1300 does 4D, while the dual laser cannon of the A-Wing and the Y-Wing do 5D and the quad-lasers on the X-Wing and the Millennium Falcon do 6D. The cannon are nominally the same weapon, but every time the number of weapons combined doubles, the Damage increases by 1D. This is the basis of my own Coordination bonus system.

If, on the other hand, we assume that the RAW's Coordination rules are applicable to weapons (i.e. +1 for ever additional weapon combined), then things can spiral out of control very quickly, especially with larger ships. The most extreme example is the Executor's Front Arc Heavy Turbolasers (10D Capital Scale per cannon). If one were to apply the RAW Coordination bonus, then the Executor's 100 cannon would get a bonus of +99, or +33D (converting from pips to dice). 10D + 33D - 12D (converting up to Death Star Scale) gets you 31D Death Star-Scale damage, far exceeding even the Death Star II superlaser's maximum output of 16D Death Star Scale.

Bottom line, the RAW is both vague and conflicting as to how larger weapons on capital ships actually coordinate, which leaves we the fans to clean up the mess. I originally wanted to revert to the 2E method, which applied bonuses more gradually, but that system has its own irregularities, so I ended up coming up with my own system, in which every time the number of people/objects being coordinated doubles, it generates a +1D bonus that can be applied to a single roll, or can be split between rolls, as dictated by the character in charge.

For example, an ISD's 20 front-arc turbolasers generate a bonus of 4D/5D (depending on which direction you round off). The captain can apply all of that bonus to either Damage or Fire Control, or he can treat it as a dice pool and split it between the two.

A lot of stats have been posted over the years in this topic, both by myself and others. While I have included all of my own write-ups in my stat index, I thought it might be helpful to create an Index for people who are looking specifically for Fractalsponge projects, including both my work and the various stats posted by other contributors. The Index has been added to original post for this topic.

Heavy Atmospheric Tactical Transport/external (HATT/e)

Images

Civilian carry-alls are in common use on most civilized worlds, hauling cargo to and from orbit, or surface-to-surface moves. The logistics-intensive Imperial Army also makes extensive use of such craft, but the civilian models are too slow and vulnerable to risk anywhere near a combat zone. The Zeta-Class fills the gap, combining heavy airlift capacity with decent armor and defensive weaponry. Its external grappling and tractor field system is capable of lifting nearly any cargo small enough to fit in its grasp, and is a common sight ferrying cargo containers and pre-fabricated buildings from location to location. Zetas are also commonly paired with walker units, using their heavy-lift capacity and mobility to rapidly shift the slow moving walkers as needed.

While the craft was originally called the Zeta, it is almost never referred to as such in military service. This is in part due to the tradition in the Imperial Army of referring to aerospace craft by an alphanumeric designation (in this case, the HATT/e, for Heavy Atmospheric Tactical Transport/external), but also because the Imperial Navy's ubiquitous supply freighter was also called the Zeta-Class. Since tradition also held that hyperspace-capable shuttles were assigned letter designations from the Tionese alphabet, high command held that the supply freighter had a prior claim to the name. As such, the carry-all is known as the Zeta-Class almost exclusively in internal company documents.

Intersector-Class Sloop

Images

The Intersector is a multi-role combat platform that blends the roles of a light patrol vessel and a fast attack ship, able to perform extended patrols and superiority operations against light craft, while its powerful missile armament gives decent throw-weight against larger frigates and light cruisers. Intersectors are most commonly deployed closer to the Core Worlds, but have been encountered on occasion in the Expansion Region and Outer Rim. Their biggest weakness is their limited supply of warheads, as the ship carries no reloads for its missile tubes. Once all the missiles are fired, the ship has to continue to operate without its most potent weapon, or return to base and reload. As a result, Intersectors in medium- to high-intensity combat zones tend to operate relatively close to their home bases. In response, a variant of the Intersector is being produced for use in longer range patrols, replacing the missile tubes with a pair of heavy ion cannon. While the ion cannon lack the punch and versatility of the missile launchers, they have much more efficient ammunition consumption, allowing the ship to deploy for longer periods without needing resupply.

So, I wasn't planning on doing this one, but I happened upon it while doing a search for something else on Fractal's page, and thought "why not?"

Escort Corvette

Images

The Rendili Escort Corvette is a modification of the Rendili Light Corvette, a common sight on customs and patrol duty. Rendili simply installed an enclosed hangar bay between the bow mandibles, while also upgrading the ship's weaponry with additional dedicated anti-starfighter turrets. While not able to stand up to Alliance frigates, the Escort Corvette is a credible match for most other corvette classes, and its huge small craft capacity (for a ship of its size) makes it a formidable foe for pirates and Alliance starfighter raids. Innovative commanders have also used the Escort Corvette's transport capacity to deploy light ground forces, including some vehicles and light walkers.

Contentor-Class Taskforce Replenishment Ship

Images

The Contentor is the Imperial Navy's main medium-duty resupply tender. While larger vessels exist, they are generally reserved for servicing full fleets or for the largest command ships, such as the Executor-Class. As such, the Contentor is far more common, and can be encountered replenishing small Imperial taskforces across the galaxy. It is equipped with five refueling booms, as well as four smaller docking points for light craft. Its fuel load is primarily carried in a pair of large, hardened fuel pods near the bow, which can actually be removed and replaced as needed. The ship also features massive internal storage bays for the restocking of ammunition, foodstuffs and all the other myriad supplies that keep the Imperial Navy up and running. The ship's design allow service multiple vessels at once, using its arrays of tractor beams projectors to hold in close formation while transferring fuel via its articulated boom arms, and force tube projectors to move cargo containers across the open space between the two vessels.

Naturally, such vessels are priority targets for Alliance attacks, as the destruction of a replenishment ship on the eve of a major battle can cripple an Imperial operation just as effectively as eliminating a star destroyer or two, and at much less cost. As such, Contentors are equipped with their own defensive armament, and rarely travel anywhere without a suitable escort. That hasn't stopped the Alliance, however, who focus significant efforts from Alliance Intel to ascertain advance warning of movement by Contentors and their escorts, to the point where more than one Imperial Admiral has used their own replenishment ships as bait in a trap, with mixed result.

Designer Note: I don't have a mechanic for Underway Replenishment, but it isn't really necessary for a story. The ability of the ship to resupply enemy ships (and the failure of planned enemy operations if those supplies are captured or destroyed) is the impetus for whatever larger story arc the GM intends. I may work up something in the future as part of my larger Endurance Dice project, but for now, this is more of a Story Factor than any sort of actual rule.

I see back in 2017 this fractal image for Black Ice ever came up for discussion. Did anyone ever make stats for this?

I've wanted to, but I can't quite decide how I want to do it. I know there were stats for them on the Holocron; maybe in the Starship Stat book?

The thing I don't like about those stats is that it doesn't really encompass one of the few known bits of information we have about the FSCV:
    As the vast majority of an FSCVs power is going through the Prexton [doublefield generator], it is no surprise that the ion engines are underpowered. FSCVs at full throttle can take 35 hours and over 600,000,000 kilometers to come to a stop from normal sublight speed, and a like time to accelerate the ships again. FSCVs are therefore flown on paths tangent to the orbits of planets whose depots are being resupplied. Smaller ships unload and reload the cargo as the FSCV flies by, never losing more than a third of their sublight velocity.
By giving the stat a Space of 1, it can still be up to a Space of 4 inside of 20-30 seconds (depending on how you work the acceleration). I'm okay with the speed itself, but there needs to be a rule where a ship's acceleration is affected by how heavily loaded it is.
