FLEETS
Any fleet that contains more than a single ship or fighter squadron must be organized in the following manner. All capital ships must be placed into, at most 8 Task Forces, while all fighters must be placed into, at most 5 Fighter Groups.

Task Forces: Task Forces are made up of capital ships of any size. They are usually divided up according to the class of ship. For example, a Republic Navy task force may consist of five Hammerhead-class Corvettes. Of course, there is no restriction on the organization of task forces, as long as they are within reason (8 task forces of one corvette each would not be a reasonable navy). Task forces are referred to using numbers (TF1, TF2, etc.) unless they are specifically renamed by the commanding officer.

If renaming task forces, ensure the names are appropriate and clearly marked so as to avoid confusion during battle.

Fighter Groups: Fighter Groups can be made up of any ship that does not qualify as a capital ship. This includes fighters, bombers and small freighters. They are usually divided up according to the duty of each fighter. For example, Red Group may consist of 20 starfighters while Blue Group may consist of 10 bombers. Once again, as long as the organizations are reasonable, there's no specific restrictions. Fighter groups are named by default after five colors (Red, blue, green, gold, and gray), but as with task forces, may be renamed by the commanding officer.

If renaming fighter groups, ensure the names are appropriate and clearly marked so as to avoid confusion during battle.

ARMIES
As with fleets, armies must be organized in a special manner. All vehicles must be divided into, at most 5 Task Forces, while all ground troops must be divided into, at most 8 Battalions.

Task Forces: Army Task Forces are treated the same way as Fleet Task Forces, but with vehicles rather than ships. Refer to that section for details.

Battalions: Battalions are treated the same way as Fighter Groups, but with ground troops instead of fighters. Also, rather than being named after colors, battalions are simply named after numbers (B1, B2, etc.). Refer to the section of Fighter Groups for more details.


NOTE: It is up to faction leaders to organize their assets as described. Failure to do so will result in the fleet or army becoming "grounded." It will be denied movement until proper formations can be achieved. If a faction leader is unable to organize their assets or doesn't want to, then they may pass responsibility to another member of the faction.

NOTE TO ALL FACTION LEADERS

Since I've pretty much run dry on designs and I'll be moving to University again in less than a week (so I'll be busy), I'm putting faction assets into your own hands.

It's up to you guys (or whoever else is in the faction that wants to do it) to make listings for the fleets and armies you have, but try to keep them reasonable. After you've got them done, submit them to me to have them looked over and adjusted if necessary. Then we will reply and approve them, and you can begin spreading them throughout the galaxy.

When creating your fleet listings, please create unit stats for any ships that don't already have stats assigned (this includes most of the republic and mandalorian ships, along with a couple other freighters, such as the Ebon-Hawk-style freighter). Please do not submit custom designs for ships. Stick with canon ships for now. Stats will also be reviewed and adjusted as well, if necessary.

Please fill out your ship stats as such (example of a republic Hammerhead-class Cruiser, since they're well-known):

Name: Hammerhead-class Cruiser
Affiliation: Republic
Size: 300m
Shield: 100
Hull: 35
Attack: 12
Speed: 6
Cost: 10,560,000
Upkeep: 26,400


(To avoid confusion, upkeep costs are .25% of the total cost, or .0025 times the cost.)

Don't worry about army stats. Just give us the listings for those, since we probably won't use the same system as we are with space battles. That could get pretty tedious, so just mainly worry about your ships.

In addition, Czerka and the Exchange shouldn't have massive fleets. I'm fine if you've got a few freighters and, for example, luxury ships in your little armada, but you wouldn't have any full-out warships. Most of your assets would be third-party related, especially for your "army," which would probably be made up of mostly mercenaries. They'd be "under your flag" per se, but you wouldn't OWN them.

Anyway, that seemed to me like a kind of confusing post, so if you have quests, ask and I'll try to clear it up.

Meh, she killed more people in two books than a serial killer does in his lifetime, so she has no say in the matter.

Pff. I have my own simple rules to follow in that regard.

1. If it takes place before 'Interlude at Darknell' or after 'Vision of the Future', it is shite and/or should not have any relation to proper canon*.

2. If it was published after 1999 when Lucas directly took over what writers were allowed to do, and when Wizards of the Coast took the RPG license, it is shite and/or should not have any relation to proper canon*.

In short, Original Trilogy and Original Expanded Universe forever! No Vong, no smarmy people becoming Sith, and definitely the Timothy Zahn Clone Wars instead of the Lucas one...


*This means KOTOR era is okay, since it can be kept separate from the original canon and does not pollute due to distance.

Although, the stats make little sense. My strongest ship is only one and a half times stronger than a Hammerhead in terms of shielding, and has less than double the attack strength (as well as being far too small, judging by the size of a Courageous compared to Hammerheads in the comics)

Yeah, it seemed like it was about 1,200 meters in the shot above Vanquo.

The Hammerhead might be a newer ship, since it does seem to carry turbolasers. The Courageous-class is fitted only with laser batteries.

Uhh, how the heck do you know they are laser-batteries? They are bigger than the guns on the Hammerhead...and there are six of them...

Any information based on a comic is likely to be highly subjective and unreliable, IMO...

Yeah, but IYO large sections of canon aren't canon.
