    Current Technology Road Map

    Post  LegendaryExGamer on February 23rd 2011, 07:20

    Listed below is a wonderfully long and drawn out technology advancement road map that could go the way I have posted. It could take more or less time. Some advancements you already have, some you will have soon and some can be boosted to a priority. I have listed logical avenues of development for each article of technology you own.

    You guys can choose up to THREE PRIORITIES

    Example:
    !. Warships
    2. Battlearmor
    3. Energy Weapons

    The above three will get more work done, faster, than the rest of the development. Also, certain projects may slow down. if a category is too broad (like how there are a TON of lasers or types of Armor or engines, etc, a priority under those sections will need to be seleced, like PPCs vs. Lasers vs. Pulse Weaponry).

    Not trying to make it complicated. I just wanted you guys to have options for even more cool technology. Not to mention I spent some time on this (about 4 hours) hammering it out and looking at hybrid techs and such. You will have a lot to discuss at the next game, I am certain.

    V. Clan XL Prototyped +75% Maintenance required
    VI. Clan XL progress +50% Maintenance required
    VII. Clan XL progress +25% maintenance required

    Process costs 2X an IS targeting Computer
    Notes: All direct Fire Weapons = +2 to hit, Anti-Aircraft +2 to hit. target location +1, target head (no bonus)
    Paired lasers, machine Guns, Autocannons (including rotary) have 2 options: 1. Both hit same location (one roll)
    2. Both produce 1 additional point of damage
    Finally, multi-track system integrated. May engage up to three targets without multi-action penalty

    Q. Battle Armor Development
    I. Attempts to replicate Type XXXIII Suits are impossible... Estimates project 75-100 years of development
    Ia. Schematics for Type XXXIII and precursor XXI, XXII & XXIII suits are more feasible for reproduction
    Development will likely take 25-50 years...
    Ib. Schematics for PA(L) suit reproduction amazingly difficult due to complexity of the Minaturized Myomer strands.
    Ic. Plans for Light and Medium Suits drafted
    Id. Exoskeleton Light Suit Prototyped/Standardized and pressed into service (shortcut, not as good)
    II. Light and Medium Suits Prototyped

    This included the wreckage from Red Jack's stuff, the Robinson, Samarkand, Pintos and so on.
    Ia. The two orbital factories are pulled out of Mothballs (there are actually three, one small factory is in operation currently)
    Ib. Capital Yards runs must be pulled out of mothballs
    Ic. Status of KF Drive factory underground must be assessed
    Id. Refits of the ships can commence, there are a few automated drones you find that can be reactivated.
    II. Robinson (or a couple Pintos) is(are) restored to operational status
    III. All warships save for the Samarkand are functioning
    IV. Samarkand is still in constructiuon
    V. Samarkand is reassembled or it is complete (Block I)

    We are setting priorities at:

    1) Warships
    2) Battlearmor
    3) Energy Weapons
    4) Targeting Computers
    5) Armor/Internal Structure

    Current Status of Achievement:

    (After seizure of the protectorate zone = 3044 + 2 months)
    ER Large Lasers
    II. Production Run, Model II 7/14/19; 11 Heat; 9 Damage; 4.5 Tons

    Warships
    2 Pinto Warships are fully functional

    The Robinson is at a very basic level of operation. It works, and its armor plating is half that of a Block I vessle (short notice). All hull breaches has been sealed and it can operate as a standard jumpship. It is missing some weapons as well.

    Battle Armor
    Light and Medium suits prototyped

    Targeting Computers
    IS Targeting computer available for installation; Clan version prototyped

    Internal Structure/Armor
    All Internal Structure now reflects "Clan" standard (Standard and Endo) - This was pushed forward namely due to its usefulness in restructuring warshisps. Bonus refit rate as a result (the robinson can be fielded)

    Armor
    Light Ferro is available to the Command Unit/Jack Only (enough for everyone)

    ***THE GM DEAL***

    Dump all but 200 (100 of it you can't touch, it goest to salaries for the next year or three for manpower until you are established) Million C-Bills into development for the following:

    Top Five + Ballistics all move immediately to stage III

    1. ER Large (Done) (still have to do medium pulse and Compact PPC)

    2. Internal Structure (Done) & Endo Steel (Done) & Armor at Stage III - Heavy Ferro available to Command Company Only (Light available to everybody)

    3. Battlearmor at Stage III - Light and Medium Suits start rolling off assembly lines, heavy suits prototyped

    4. Warships hit Stage III - All warships are fully functional at maximum spec, except for the Samarkand & new Ageis, however, the Ageis could be done in six months.

    5. Targeting Computers Hit Stage III (completed all aspects of it and moving forward to stage IV)

    6. Ballistic Scientist - All Ballistics Hit Stage III (Machine guns and Antimissile systems weight half, act as Ultra weaponry and have roughly double the range and added firepower + 50% more less-volitile ammo; not to mention tri-barrelled rotary AC2 and AC5 autocannons that fire caseless ammunition as well. Rotary ultra prototyped)

    You can pick a new priority as the following four (plus the bonus ballistics) are:

    (not listed in any order of signifigance)
    1. Armor development
    2. Warships
    3. Battle Armor
    4. (OPEN)
    5. Ballistics (freebie)

    **********************Oh yeah, I forgot, that means you have pilots and support personnel for everything at Regular Training (warships at green, but you have enough trained people to fill EVERYTHING including the Ageis and the Samarkand). You still have the elite guys you hired individually, and your focus NPCs. Salaries paid for, eh, 5 years. I am hanging onto 100 Million for salaries and miscellaneous support fees. It leaves you with 100 Million... I don't think this is a bad deal, considering the time table.

    Couple questions.

    Does the deal include the 1 billion put in the bank for a rainy day fund?
    Are we dropping from 5 priorities to 4?
    Either way we will take the deal. (I know... your trying to burn up our funds LOL Wink )

    (not listed in any order of signifigance)
    1. Armor development
    2. Warships
    3. Battle Armor
    4. XL Engines
    5. Ballistics (freebie)
    ? 6. Advanced Missile Systems

    Thats fine, my mind was reeling a bit last night. Sure, you still get 5 priorities. You still have the rainy day fund of 1 billion.

    1. Armor development - Stage III
    2. Warships - Stage III
    3. Battle Armor - Stage III
    4. XL Engines - Stage II
    5. Ballistics (freebie) - Stage III
    6. Advanced Missile Systems - Stage I (The Prototype launchers save 25% of the weight the Clan variant ones do, few units being produced)

    The above is fine moving forward
