Starfire 3rd edition Ground Combat
« on: May 16, 2023, 08:34:38 AM »
I wanted to calculate the CFP, but found an inaccuracy in the rules:

point 21.04.02 (Imperial Starfire) - the basic value is 1 + 0.3 for each HT level, i.e. for HTL1 10 PCF = 13 CFP

however in:
point 27.01 (Starfire 3rd edition revised 2012) - the basic value is 2 + 1 for HT level, i.e. for HTL1 10 PCF = 30 CFP

which one to use?

That is up to you, however, 3rd Ed Rev is more recent, so you might want to go with that.

This ground combat system seems to have been treated without any deep thought.
Effectiveness depends on a single throw of D100. This seems heavily unfair, do you know of any house rules for this?

Usually ground combat is resolved by a warship in orbit firing a missile at each ground unit, which makes the ground combat system very secondary
