> What is Chapter Master?
A Space Marine Chapter management simulator with mechanics resembling Master of Orion II and with amounts of FUN not unlike Dwarf Fortress. Also aims to be part King of Dragon Pass in the future.

> Where do I download it?
See Obligatory Links below

LOOK IN THE KEY LINKS FOR DOWNLOAD LINKS. ALSO READ THE EMPEROR DAMNED MANUAL AND FAQ OR GET PURGED BY THE =][= (it's somewhat outdated). Also link to PATCH NOTES.

> Does anyone have the weapon stats?
Since the release of ver. 0.635, all weapons and armours have stats now in the game. After the GRAND UPDATE (0.65), Relics also have their stats shown in the Librarium.

> Where do I find the changelog?

Duke's attempts to find a replacement coder didn't go that well. It turns out that the reason he needed to hand it off in the first place was that he ran out of money and needed to actually support himself and not starve. Therefore, a new solution has been proposed:

The more money Duke gets, the more time he will be able to dedicate to the project.

"Small patch. The stuff I have planned will take me a little while to complete, so I figured I'd upload at least something right now. This also gives people time to get a feel for ship controls and give feedback before the next update.

0.6536

Major Changes:
If your Chapter Master is present in a fleet battle all of your ships become controllable. You can rectangle-box select ships with left click, or select them individually, and then order them to attack or move by right clicking.

Other Changes:
Kings of Space advantage added. Allows control of ships, in a battle, even without the Chapter Master present, in addition to general buffs.
Passwords have been changed for March.
Dreadnoughts in Unit Settings may no longer be assigned all weapons, Gear, or Mobility items."

Does anyone else think that Orks shouldn't build battleships so goddamn fast? They're literally unbeatable in space if you;re not a Fleet-based chapter, and even then it's close. Six battleships and six escorts but no cruisers in about four turns, how does that even work?

I bet they just have shitty wooden doors for airlocks, and when it's closed(even if there are bulletholes in it) it keeps in atmosphere because orcs have no concept of physics.

Honestly this feature is pretty accurate to the lore, the imperial guard dying in droves without even scratching me.
Sucks that it pretty much wastes my time though, I have to force close the game and reload a save.

Unrelated to that, I found a small Eldar fleet in a random system, not marked on my map but I could attack them. They got dropped like flies and then sent me hate mail. Due to the IG incident I reloaded to before they hate me and am now wondering if they have a base nearby.

It's not for no reason. When you flee space battles you still can get caught. Usually if forces of enemy are big, but not that big and you flee, your escorts stay to hold off enemy and you still lose ships, but not those precious ones like frigates or battle barges.

On the other hand, Hive Fleets tend to be massive and if you want to escape with only couple of shits, you'll get eaten no matter what.

I just started playing this. Two questions:

How am I supposed to remove the greenskins from a planet? I can only attack twice, and after every turn they are back to full strengh. Only bombarding seems to do the trick. But even then, they're back to "moderate" strengh only a turn later. I just liberated Ghorstangrad, it now has a green exlamation point next to it, but the Orks are already back...

Other question, how do I leave the sector? Or is there no way to leave your base sector currently? I'm in sector dasha, and I've seen screenshots of other sectors.

>> No.38462931

>>38462914
Your problem with the greenskins is probably that the rest of the system is heavily ork-infested as well, so other nearby orks just keep crashing onto it. You've got to purge the each planet in the system equally over time.

>> No.38463020

So the Inquisition has asked me to capture a termagant. They've given me a couple 'webbers' for this purpose. But if I put those on tac marines and attack the nids, they don't seem to use them.

I think the way the gene-seed tithe works needs adjusting. It's destroying my loyalty, but I want to be able to contribute. I'm doing a Lamenters run, so I start with 0 gene seed, and the only way to get more is to obviously lose marines. Now being the Lamenters you'd think this would happen pretty quickly, but outside of losing my entire fourth company I've taken no losses. It seems really stupid to have to wait for marines to die while on my penitent crusade to get the tithe necessary to keep my loyalty from going down.

Maybe if you have no gene seed available you pay X amount of req instead? And if you have a full-size chapter as determined by the Inquisition THEN your loyalty goes down because they assume you're hiding gene seed somewhere?

Being Lamenters is suffering, just deal with it.
And yeah, you will lose some Lamenters, but you can grow more geneseed.

Actually losing loyalty because of geneseed is non-issue. Really. Bigger issue is that after 600 cycles of non-stop killing things I land on 15% penitent with 160 marines. Half of brothers have nightmares because Black Rage came back. 13 systems in a sector are ravaged by Hive Fleet, Ork Waagaah even though contained still spawns ships, Necron tombs are waking up in unaccessible sectors and I have 3 demon planets, no possibility to call exterminatus and heresies popping-up everywhere.

Come to think of it there was another funny time where hitting enter too fast during battle caused all my guys to die. Except for the Librarian, who healed himself and continued fighting a warboss and a hundred of his leftovers. Cue epic last stand of the entire Chapter run solely by a pissed off and medically aware Librarian. I decided to turn the game off after about 200 turns, warboss was invincible too.

They seem pretty suited to play style, I've had the best luck with Biomancy, in that they heal and do pretty hefty damage to everything, but I also focus more on ranged weapons than melee.

Pyros and Rune I found pretty underwhelming. Pyro was just not dishing out damage comparable to anything like the Bio was (and they only do damage) while my Rune Librarians just wanted to buff the shit out of themselves all day (which the flavour text seemed to make it out to be that they buffed their melee, which could be why they seemed underwhelming to me) and rarely actually attack, though when they did, they would shoot lighting and wind storms and did about the same damage to enemy forces as a bio did, just much less frequently.

I've not played extensively with the regular or telekinetic psykers though, so can't really comment on their strength compared to the others. From what I understand, both of them are similar in that they have damage aspects, but also do support like Bio does - just the telekinetic and regular support in the forms of preemptive defence rather than reactive.

kek Blood Ravens are the most generic Space Marines you can possibly think of. Also, there a more than enough non generic chapters to choose from. Shoehorning their own donutsteel chapter into the story only made the game worse.

Without the Blood Ravens the games would've not only sold better, but they also had the chance to make a better campaign for DoW2, which much like DC's campaign could've been player driven, instead of "muh donotsteel chapter lore"

May have been helpful when that version was up to date to some new players, but by now the FAQ covers what a manual should cover. And the FAQ is shit as well.

No one but the developer. I'm pretty sure it's bad if it goes down, but other then that, I'm not sure. I have no idea if there are threshold that cause effects to happen or where those thresholds are. I have no idea what affects it, other then tithe of geneseed, and that I have conjecture, not actual evidence.

No one seems to know if a Forgeworld is good for anything other then if one is very close you get a bonus to requisition. But there could be many behind the scenes effects like increased corruption in neophytes recruited from such a place or even a greater likelihood of such a character becoming a techmarine. Or it could even affect you maximum number of techmarines you can support by your chapter, if it is your monastery world.

No one seems to know but the developer.

If loyalty reaches 0 the chapter crumbles. it's the loyalty of your marines to you, the chapter master, I believe. Things that I have found decrease it are
- not hunting fallen marines (-30 for each that gets away)
- being over codex size (-12 one-time hit)
- running away from an inspection (-5 for each time)
Forge Worlds do the following:
-Ships are built there and appear over one after the designated number of turns
-Cannot take artifacts from them without negotiating with the mechanicus
-if a battle barge is in orbit around one it increases the amount of req per turn

Where do you get that I don't approve of them? I do approve of them, but they need to be updated to be of any use. What they're now is nothing but a quickly thrown together answer to repeated questions in previous threads regarding older versions.

Just look at this thread, it's filled with questions that no one can really answer, because no one knows. 80% play this game on a trial and error basis.

Pretty much. No one knows what is actually affecting what. Other then the developer.

I know that having a Forgeworld nearby gives a bonus to requisition. That I know. Because I hovered my mouse over the requisition counter once and it had it listed as a modifier. Other then that, I have no fucking clue what else a Forgeworld affects. Does it increase likelihood of techmarine recruits? Does it cause and increase in the likelihood of techheresy or decrease it? Does techheresy exist in any form in the game? Who the fuck knows?

Had one game where I lost due to -20 loyalty when I got multiple Fallen Marine events all popping at once. So yes, a lot of this information can be given with some factual basis being that you can easily see this happen in game and explain it to someone who has not.

I dunno why anyone is up in arms over people setting up a google doc for a new FAQ. Docs are able to be updated as new releases come out by more than just the main-poster and it isn't restricted to text-only like pastebin - so if something needs an image for information, you literally drag it in.

That's a little extreme. Most I've ever gotten was 3 at once. Try splitting your chapter up. My best game is ~2000 turns in and I've saved up and made sure I have 3 fleets basically.
1 battlebarge, 3 strike cruisers, 4-5 escorts for each fleet.
3 companies of marines is enough for almost any ground-based threat (with the exception of MOTHERFUCKING NECRONS) and deploying each fleet in a different area of the sector to respond to stuff as it comes up also generally helps

>> No.38497189

>>38497045
As an added note to all anons:
for an =]|[= mission: 1 company will suffice. Always.
For Tiny-moderate ground forces: 1 company will suffice with no casualties (attack or raid doesn't matter)
For Heavy ground forces: 1 company Attack = minimal casualties, 2+ companies = anything with no casualties
Extreme/Rampant Forces: 3-5 companies will take minimal casualties in attack and medium casualties in a raid, 5+ companies should suffice for no casualties
MOTHERFUCKING NECRONS ARE ALWAYS THE EXCEPTION AND ALWAYS WARRANT AN EXTREME OVERREACTION. AWAKENED TOMBS WARRANT A FULL CHAPTER DEPLOYMENT

It is basic data storage and recovery. Nothing complex. Just list an object with a certain type of data tag. Simple. Basic database construction and query returns.

Don't get me wrong, I love the graphics and the direction it is going. But the data handling is really subpar on the fleet side. The individual marines are handled great. Their interface is a bit clunky but no big deal there. This isn't a game for the mass market and so a little difficulty or repetition in manipulating the marines, no biggie. The data, is pretty much flawless on that side, that I can tell. Marines are tracked well and don't get lost or repeated in lists. The vehicles get shadows at the bottom of the lists, and the ships just are not there some times. And when they are, they have phantom marines running about in them that are not allowing the living marines the space to sleep in transit...
