Has anyone costed out a few of the ships in the rosters? Many (most?) are wrong.

And when costing out new ships, how do you determine the Hull Value? Warlord's FAQ says --

13. When making stats for other ships how do you calculate hull points? Is there a calculation \ formula that can be applied?
Yes (RC)

No help there.


P.S. CS FAQ is at:

I got nothing. I think they made it up as they went along

The 2 big, glaring errors (to me)are:

1. Speed (possibly the single biggest effect in the game)is not a factor of points cost

2. Crew quality is a flat cost rather than a percentage of base vessel cost – BIG difference in the effect of crew quality of a vessel with few systems/weapons to one with many.

Anyone come up with any solutions?

Have currently settled on:

Base cost = 1/2 Hull Points + Max speed + Weapons & Equipment
Crew quality = MULTIPLY Base by 1.5 for Regular, 1.75 for Veteran

My suggestion is to toss the point system entirely. It is just an estimate at best.
