Default Kickstarter for Squadron Strike: Traveller app is funded

Our AVID Assistant Kickstarter reached 100% funding with 25 days left to go! Thanks to everyone who is supporting this project--you've exceeded our wildest dreams.

The AVID Assistant Kickstarter

Blather, blather, blather for those who want to know about the Kickstarter:

This project is a computerized version of the AVID. When you're trying to get new players to the table, the AVID Assistant removes all of "am I doing this right?" questions from newbies. For people who already play Squadron Strike,* it makes managing multiple ships easier and speeds up play. It removes errors in orientation, and it moves some of the head-bendy conceptual tricks from your brain to buttons on a tablet or phone.

Risks? There's already a functioning, tested program. Ken and the development team put a lot of work into it, and it handles the three basic functions of the AVID, including heading changes (shown in the first image below), shooting bearings (second image), and mapping bearings to firing arcs (third image).

*and Attack Vector: Tactical

Hey, everybody! Just 48 hours left and we're closing in on a really big stretch goal: adding a full-fledged movement plotting tool to the app. We can use your help:
  • If every current supporter add $2.75 to his or her pledge, we make the stretch goal. Whoa.
  • If 20 more people become supporters at just $35 each, we make the stretch goal.
  • If 10 more people become supporters by signing up for a boxed game ($75), we make the stretch goal.
  • If 2 people order the nearly-indestructible 0.045" aluminum sheet movement cards, we really make the stretch goal!



Aluminum Squadron Strike AVID Cards:

Our vendor that makes the acrylic flight bases can also do laser dye sublimation on aluminum, and laser-cut the pieces to trim.

This would be three (3) SS Move Cards, dye sublimated on both sides onto 0.045" thick aluminum. They can be written on (and erased) like the laminated cards, so they're practical as well as durable. Each would weigh about 2.15 oz.

Cinematic plotting is funded for the app. We need another $620 to fund vector plotting for Squadron Strike: Traveller (it's more complicated to code).

Vector plotting is funded! That means that Traveller is fully supported. There are some nice rewards available and you still have a few hours to drop by.

Thanks to everyone who supported the Kickstarter!
