Nanotechnology Ruling Update

18 May 2018 - 06:47 PM

Brief update:

 

As of now, Nanotechnology has been moved from the Banned list to the Restricted list.

 

As with other restricted materials, this may not be combined with any other restricted material, and subsequently follows the same rules for their use, balance, and implementation in future factory submissions. To see the complete list of restricted materials please check this thread.

 

Enjoy, and don't abuse it, you gremlins.

[ + ] Very high degree of protection against blasters, swords, and knives.

[ + ] Extreme protection from EMP/Ion.

[ + ] Lightweight and form-fitted, allowing full range of motion.

[ + ] Gravity boots allow for quick escapes or terrain traversing.

[ + ] Field disruptor allows the wearer to bypass standard shields unopposed.

[ - ] No protection from explosives, acid based chemicals, and sonic weaponry.

[ - ] Does not protect from the vacuum of space or severe elements.

[ - ] Due to the Asheran Armorweave, it is incredibly susceptible to electricity.

[ - ] Does not protect the face in any capacity.

This armor is created using a combination of Asheran Armorweave, Flex-Armor, Pyronium, and a body-glove. Given the lightweight materials, it affords the wearer a full range of motion, as well as incredible protection from blasters, slugthrowers, swords, and knives. Additionally, the properties found in Asheran Armorweave give the wearer a moderately enhanced defense from lightsabers. While not on par with other materials such as Phrik, Beskar, or Songsteel, the armorweave will protect the wearer from multiple strikes, provided they have not been delivered in close proximity to one another, thereby destroying the interwoven fibers. Pyronium has been added to the armor to prevent damage to the sensitive electronics within the armor. Additions to the suit include gravity boots for rapid traversing or quick escapes, a personal energy shield, high powered thermal torch, field disruptor, long range comlink, and a self-injection bacta dose. Given its lightweight nature and thin fabric, the armor provides no protection from explosives, sonic weaponry, acid based chemicals, nor will it prevent the transfer of energy from high kinetic impacts to the wearer. Broken bones and other, similar injuries are still possible, even if the armor is not penetrated.


Map Update 30 APRIL 2018

30 April 2018 - 05:36 PM

Yikes! There's a bit more information coming in this month's map update than usual. So! Here is what you need to know:

  1. Factions occupying at least one planet within a hex where a recalled faction once occupied another planet in that hex have been adjusted to claim the entire hex, to clean up the map.
  2. SSD rules have been updated to clarify the following: Dominions must be started and completed in the same month to qualify for a SSD.
  3. Map Update submissions generally must be submitted prior to the end of the last weekend of the month. Courtesy extensions may be granted based on the number of days remaining in the month. If you are unsure whether you need an extension, it is best to ask ahead of time.
  4. Each hex may contain a maximum of three planets.
  5. Custom planets must adhere to the following: A maximum of two custom planets may be allocated to a hex.
  6. Only canon planets may occupy a third and final space in the hex. (Though canon planets may occupy one, two, or all three, if no custom planets are within.)

(Edit: A correction to the map has been made as there was originally an error in the dominion location for the Mandalorian Empire. Apologies!)

 

And now here's your map! (link)

Nabooian Star Defender RNS N-20SD

  • Incredible resistance to EMP and Ion based assault due to de-ionizers and Pyronium hull.
  • Capable of withstanding prolonged engagements with a vast array of highly powered weaponry and defenses.
  • Shields designed to absorb, dissipate, and recycle enemy fire.

  • The N-20SD was designed without hangar space to better supplement firepower and defensive measures.
  • Limited armament along belly of ship. Heaviest weaponry positioned above.
  • One of a kind. The small Nabooian government cannot shoulder the cost of an additional Star Defender in its fleet. This is its only capital ship.

With the state of affairs of both the Galactic Alliance and the galaxy as a whole, it had become clear that it was time for Naboo to rely on its own fleet for system wide protection. That meant finding and allocating the funds necessary to build a Star Defender. The N-20SD was designed and manufactured by RNS for the Royal Security Force of Naboo. Designed to fulfill one purpose, the defense of the system, hangars were foregone in its design, in order to allocate the room necessary to support the vast array of armaments and defenses that were required for this vessel. Leaving the job of starfighter squadrons to fall elsewhere, the ship's primary roll is to establish a front-line command in the event of attack. While it boasts a large variety of weaponry, including the powerful Electromagnetic Plasma Cannons and Hyper Velocity Cannons, the majority of its weapons systems are positioned above the belly of the craft, leaving it less able to actively protect itself from below.
