An idea for stats

As Lights 25 round old and now defunct setup guide is stickied in here and this is now primarily a stats section could we please have a beginners guide to stat making stickied instead.


Maybe have the AC/DC/EC formulaes up for people to reference. Have general guide to what the process is. IE. Jintaos matrix fetish

Maybe it could be added and updated to provide more general race concepts etc or a ship naming guide?

Re: An idea for stats

I wrote this a while ago. It's far from perfect, and incomplete to boot, but it might help.

The way I went about creating those list was going over a bunch of rounds and writing down ship names. I forgot which rounds I used. Maybe 16-30? I also forgot what criteria I used to 'select' ship names.

Re: An idea for stats

For names i think one should go with your own nostalgia preference.

R6 is the original stats set in my eyes.

Meanwhile, Interceptor/Spider/Phantoms/Harpy/vsharak always used to be a fighter, and i think they should continue being that.
Phoenix, Torpedo, Arrowhead used to be corevettes.

FR/DE/CR and even BS has been interchanging on ship names since the beginning, wich is quite natural.

Re: An idea for stats

Yeah I was thinking broader tbh with the ship names.

Terran is Mythical Creatures

Cat is insects

Xan is supernatural

Zik is Nautical

Etd is I would guess 'financial'?
