Spaceship Design and Combat: GURPS conversion

You can’t pack a powerful particle beam in small size. Having a more complex conversion for skills and using a 2 or 3 d10 system would maintain the curve that GURPS is built around. Preview of the PDF.

For deep space battles a hex size of 1, km and 3-minute or minute turn lengths is appropriate. And why not just combine missiles with “drones”? Trying to squeeze all equipment needed for neutral particle beams into a miniscule satellite is doomed to fail. Lasers even UV have weak damage, limiting their offensive utility to precision strikes on small targets and exposed systems.

GURPS Spaceships 2 provides statistics and descriptions for dozens of interplanetary guros interstellar commercial vessels, from tiny shuttlecraft and rugged tramp freighters to the sleek star liners and beautiful luxury yachts of the elite. Railguns in particular are slow and you’d have to saturate a huge volume of space to cover the entire maneuver manifold of an accelerating target.

What weapons can benefit from this information at a gurls where you need drones as extended antenna to get a precise location of your target? This helps align size categories to the ones already present in Eclipse Phase. Problem with forward observer drones without their own weapons is the same that mandates their creation in the first place and about which gugps are talking in relation to kinetic attacks at extreme distances – establishing precise position of target relative to your own ship and light lag.


Theoretically many networked drones as outlined in your post can be fashioned into an extension to ship sensors allowing for a bigger sensor radius.

Finally, the decile values allow easy conversion between base Eclipse Phase and a scaled up ship combat system. Antimatter missiles are not cost effective. And again targets with armour good enough to stop shrapnel will spacesgips much bigger size than a few meters. Size is no obstacle. Written by David L. Though drones will need to dive in and out of cloud to relay information without losing packets or use laser communication which can be even less reliable due to problems with determining exact drone position through a hurps that obscures even signatures of the battleship.

Periodical Articles Podcast Episodes. Easiest solution would be to use a loan calculator. SJ Games and Munchkin Medium: Especially if you want a reliable lock on target due to cost of such devices. You can edit this page to create it.

This is to solve the problem in standard GURPS whereby kinetics suffered enormous base accuracy penalties even against stationary targets. My guess is that it should be an Errata, it should read: Drones and Kinetic attacks.

Add a copy to your collection. They still treat them as separate ships that must be independently targeted.

Four other factors I can think of suggest the superiority of this tactic: Originally Posted by Andrew Hackard. This is also why they are so vulnerable to jamming. And how you will protect them from PD systems in such a way that it won’t mess with your own sensors? Surf our site for the files you want. I suspect that like swarms this is limited by their comms range.
