It was literally just on my PC so I used it. It's an obsolete version anyway, but most importantly I'm very familiar with it because I had to work on all my school and uni projects with it. As such it'd just be a waste of time and energy switching over to Libreoffice (which I do use on my Mint laptop) just for this project. All it would accomplish is slowing me down.
Anyway, I just finished a game. It was good but there are a few changes I will make to the second edition:
Firstly, aircraft should NOT trigger an attack of opportunity when they enter a ship's AA range.
Secondly, 1500 starting currency is only enough for a handful of ships and wings. It should be more like 2500.
Thirdly, ships should have their speed adjusted to 15CM, down from 30CM.
Fourth, cruisers are OP and need to be nerfed but buffed in a different way to counter it. Anti-ship range should be reduce to 60CM from 90CM. Anti-missile dice should be changed to 4D20 down from 5D20. Anti-aircraft should be upped to 2D20 from 1D20.
I'll try a second game played like this and see how it goes. Will keep you posted. >>3298
I'm really interested to hear how it goes, make sure to post here about your experience.
