British vehicles in North Africa were painted pink because it's almost impossible to see a pink vehicle in the desert light.

So keep in mind how hilarious it would have been to see 4 SAS badasses jumping dunes in a land rover painted light pink while shooting up a german air field with a bolted on machine gun, using a strategy that replaced every instance of the words "tactical" and "covert" with "BALLS OUT".

Jokes aside, I really do hope that if GW makes a new Battlefleet Gothic boardgame that there is a bit more variety in ship designs. While I do love the cathedral look, Imperial ships just feel like bigger versions of the same thing. At least aesthetically.

Basically what I'm saying is that I'd like them to expand on the space combat stuff. Mainly so that there is material to work with and then they could make a Sins of a Solar Empire type of videogame adaptation. Because I've been wanting something like that for fucking ever.

Also, xenos or not, Demiurg have some great ship designs.

That... Makes a lot of sense actually.

I was coming up with the rogue trader game where they player investigate a space hulk from the dark age.

I was thinking of described it looking like Star Trek... But if you read the fluff about 30k and before it's described as being just as ridiculously over the top and Baroque as 40k is... Just shiny

I just got Stellaris so I might be missing something, but to me it feels the combat is even more hands-off than ES. In ES the fighting was completely automated but you could choose different special action to be taken at each of the three phases, which could affect the outcome. In Stellaris, to me it seems the standard battle is you setting your fleet to attack the enemy, then watching the bars that represent relative strength of the fleets move.

It's not all that visually impressive either: the biggest, most important battle I've had, which decided the outcome of a major war and permanently broke the military power of my main enemy (Their fleet was individually superior to mine or any of my allies, but I managed to catch them while they were fighting the biggest fleet of my ally and threw every ship I had into the battle) consisted of several blobs of ships floating in place right next to each other and shooting at each other untill one side was dead.

Pre-battle maneuvering and lining upp different 'waves' of fleets allow you to do everything from drawing off the enemy fighter screen into a brawl with PD cruisers to dropping in anti cap destroyers behind the enemy flagship etc.

So yeah, sure, you cant tell your fleet to do anything once engaged, but you have a lot of options and depth in how, when and from what angles you engage with what.

>> No.50942843

>>50941985
The problem is, every one of those things you named requires you to fight the game engine to accomplish it.

Here I go, getting my flanking destroyers into posi - oh nevermind, one of them caught the edge of the enemy fleet's engagement radius.

>> No.50943436

>>50942843

Giving orders to separate units while the fights starting is fighting the engine?

Most efficient way to do it is to drop them into the system from different routs which puts more weight on strategic positioning and doesnt require micromanaging in system. And sending separate waves does not require fighting anything but your own patience. Granted you can send more waves the next turn in ES too, but then its a seperate fight. You cant for example drop in and engage with a brawler fleet then drop a sniper fleet after to keep them out.

Either case it's still miles better than a shitty 'deathblob auto-resolve but it takes more time', and many of the effects could be mimicked by putting in a battle planing stage with things like formation and target priority. Its not like they couldnt pull something better off either, i mean look at Endless Legend.

It would be nice if there was a way to order fleets to disengage without having to use emergency FTL.

Like, they would attempt to pull back to starport/friendly fleet with the highest strength, or edge of the system farthest away from the enemy if none exists. If the ships are fast enough, or the enemy also decides to disengage (The AI would decide based on tactical prudence, and their position on the pacifist/militarist axis) , or your ships are fast enough, combat ends, and you can then regroup or safely use FTL without damaging your ships.

Combine this with some other simple tactics (charge, maintain range, ect) and it might actually feel like you have some degree of control. I mean right now AI behaviors are hard-coded into ship type. What the fuck.
