No rules for FCS or BCS?
 
Just in case I missed it. In 800 pages there are no rules for the use or construction of FCS or BCS?

Nothing equivalent to HG or TCS?

Just mightily puzzled.

regards:confused:

No, just for small ships (ACS), just like LBB2.


The ACS system can easily be adapted to build larger ships, see e.g.:

Thankyou for that.

The LBB2 was somewhat smaller!

I seem to recall it being mentioned that BCS rules are forthcoming.

At least the ACS rules allow you to go up to 2400 tons (and higher tech levels).

I apologize for my ignorance, but what do "FCS" and "BCS" stand for?

You can construct BCS ships with the ACS system in the book by ganging together components. The main thing you will lack are spinal scale weapons.

Book 2 page 33 defines:

ACS - Adventure Class Ships (100-2400 tons)
BCS - Battle Class Ships (2500-100,000 tons)
FCS - Fleet Class Ships (bigger than that, first defined in T5.10)

Maybe. I limit my ACS app to 2400 tons max. I think a BCS design system will abstract out a lot of the details like Control Panels (no stems, no seeds, that you don't need).

And this is in Book 2 of T5.10?
