Starflight: Scaling On the Fly

Here's another article that's been sitting on my computer. It's a much-needed update to an older article that appeared in Star Frontiersman #6. Though I only recently updated the movement scales. I think they should make a lot more sense now. Just ignore the stated length of turns. The unrounded decimal numbers can be distracting and they're really unimportant to the function of the rules.

This update also includes a scaling map that makes scaling easy and helps players understand how the scales relate to each other.

  1. Ascent, you could host these files on the wiki if you wanted to instead of the 4shared site. I like the file layout.

  2. Thanks, Tom. I'll check it out.

  3. By the way, Tom, I need your help. If you'll note in this article, that I have scales 8-10, which, if I remember correctly, the ADF begins to peter out somewhere around there. If you could provide some helpful statistics in the Office of Surveys and Statistics project I started at starfrontiers.us, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'll then make adjustments to this article accordingly.


  4. Tom, I just tried uploading to the wiki, but it won't accept anything but image files, not PDF's.

  5. I probably just need to enable something. I'll check it out tomorrow. I'll also try to take a look at the other scales.

  6. Thanks, Terl. It's fixed now. Files have been transferred.
