Reply with quote

Hello, if anyone if familiar with the SWVIII merchant fleet and hyperspace system then they should understand what I am talking about right away.

Companies should be made to have merchant fleets and ship yards for construction and shipping. This will also allow for pirating making the RPG more realistic.

Hyper Space routes in the RPG should have Players stop at certain planets during their trip to allow for a more realistic setting and to allow pirating, enemy raids, and etc.

I dont think it will work well in this RPG. It is based on a different combat and realism type thing. It would take a bit of reworking.

Our system assumes that we stop at these planets, also, you have to have shipyards and can rent them and etc.

Actually, if travelling along a hyperspace route, if there is an enemy planet blocking you, you do need to engage in battle.

Well, how about the Merchant fleet idea. I mean some people sign up as pirates, when there is no real point. I mean whats the point of being a fisher, when there is no fish in the sea.

I don't know of any ship routes... anywhere, nor have I ever seen anyone get "blocked" for that matter. The Empire and the Alliance flash fleets around the galaxy like they had time dilation or something... realistically I was told that it takes hours and days at a time to ride hyperspace.

It does, Brote. Why do you think there's a delay when reinforcements arrive for battle?

And it does... however, full scale real-time travelling delays are impractical, and used for battles.
