Dropship and Warship unit cards
« on: 24 August 2017, 15:21:37 »
Hi guys,

I just purchased the AS companion and was pretty excited to see the chapter on Capital Aerospace engagements as I had just picked up a load of warships that are awaiting paint. I checked the MUL for unit cards, but was unable to find any. I did a search here, but it just turned up a post from 2013 saying they were coming "soon". Does anyone have unit cards made or know where I can find some for any of the following? Thanks!

I'll take stats if it allows me to make my own cards. I'm trying to avoid having to figure out all the conversions which seem daunting considering warships and dropships have multiple firing arcs and some have both capital and standard weapons etc. There are a few cards that someone made that are available on the AS international facebook page, but there was some question as to their accuracy.

Where are you able to get  the stats from? I haven't figured out how to get them from the MUL and I, not sure where else they would be.

Alexander Knight is the primary AS stat converter for the MUL team.  He has the stats because he converted them all.

Quick glance,  The threshold values are too high on the spreadsheet.  They need to be divided by an additional 4.

AS:C pg 95
"This Threshold value equals the unit’s Alpha Strike armor value, divided by 3, and
then divided by the number of firing arcs (1 for aerospace, 4 for
others), rounding up."

I'm positive we changed that, but I can't find it in the published errata.  Nckestrel, Scotty?

The big-ship aero side of the game is not something I'm nearly as familiar with, least of all behind the scenes.  This post is the only one I can find on the subject, and I can't see where that made it into errata (or if the errata has been superseded by something else).

iirc,  there was a discrepancy between the conversion rules and the PV calculation rules.  The PV side didnt mention the divide by firing arcs portion of threshhold calculations.

The ASC's divide by 3 and by firing arcs was errata to the previous rules for calculating damage thresholds.  Anywhere that doesn't say divide by firing arcs needs to be caught up.
