Terrain and Close Combat

Just watched a few DP battle reports, I think they are good but it would be nice to have some at a slower explanation tempo, so you understand a bit more what's going on. That said, I thought of some ideas. The first one is minor - I just thought that the idea of a tower, like a mast (or space eleva...

Re: Dark Potential Corporation Renaming Contest

Well, many scientific symbols are taken, but I have one yet to go... The Pi Industries, shortend Pind. (Or Pi Co. if you like. Couldn't really take that name since if you read it out it will in swedish be something like "broken", perhaps suitable for this game. Another suggestion is Pi Enterprise, s...

Contest: Lift off

Lift off - “The highway is complete!” shouted Norman just after slamming the door shut behind him. - “What? You said it wouldn’t be done before Christmas,” said the puzzled man behind the desk. - “Yeah I know but with the recent addition to our manpower it went way faster than we had thought”. The ...

Re: Diplomacy?

Still interested?

I dont have the board, but I could find a picture on google and use that (and then I guess good old paint would come in handy dandy).

Never played before but I have found the rules and watched a little on youtube so I think I should be able to play.

Re: Squad Shooting vs Individual Shooting (NEED YOUR INPUT)

Ok, I got a small idea. Lets say one model requires a 8 to hit. Then you need to roll that number or below it (it was below not above right?). If you have a squad of 4 guys shooting, you would add half the number of guys in the squad (rounding down , a 12 always failing). In the exampel those soldie...

Re: Vacuum tunnel

I really like it, reminds me/makes me think of a faction like the game metro 2033 Game!? There are two books as well, have read them both and played the game. These tunnels would be longer and the stations would be further away, and the tunnels would be more intact since they would demand a good co...

Vacuum tunnel

With the super conductors I thought that it would be possible to make a tunnel with zero air resistance, meaning you could push the car with your pinky to start. Stopping the car would be done with magnets, and there would be a limit of vehicles in the tunnel. It would be most usefull for train-like...

Re: Cover Problem

I know this thread is a few days old, but after reading it through I got a good idea for how cover should work with the distance. It may sound like I'm overcomplicating things, and yes, maybe I am. I also want to warn everyone that this idea hans't lived for more than five minutes. Cover, as you alr...

Re: Mathematic facts about the mechanics

ehm, don't know whether you realised this, but if Sk=D (smiley lol) then D=2 for regular units.... which we know won't happen... our regular troopers have D10! no offence, but it's a *major* oversight I dont fully remember everything now, school is draining my ability to think when I get home. Alth...

Re: Overal story

Have you thought of that there is another century until that time period starts? A lot can happen that almost make those break throughs, and when the century change it can all come at once. If you think of the 20th century, what did not exist then that exists today? Besides, have you ever heard of R...

Re: Funny idea:

Kind of knew that it wouldn't work. But if you have no contact with the ground you have very little to hang on to and then the slightest of touches could move you. Maybe not as violent as in the picture though. :mrgreen:

Re: An idea for suppression fire

I've recently watched the live strem (mechanics part 3) were it comes to a point that it would only be effective in heavy cover. But what if squad A1 and A2 is out in the open and B1 is in light cover (maybe even heavy cover). A1 and A2 can take turns surpressing B1 while the other one advances (sup...

Re: Mathematic facts about the mechanics

You seem to have understand what I was saying. Didn't know about the snake eyes roll though. :P
It was merely fun for me to do this and I had no intention for it to destroy the game, just to help understand some of the mechanics of it (which seems great I think).
