I'm a relatively new spaceship gamer. I really like the Starmada unity rules for spaceship combat;
I really like the toolkit approach.

Just wondering if anyone else on this forum with more space experience is also using the rules. Wondering if it would be worthwhile to share ship designs and etc…

Have you gone to MJ12's forum? You could readily do that there. I am an old Starmada fan. Started with the Compendium and stopped with X. I own all the rest and have played around with the big battle set too. Great set of rules.

That's a good idea. I should of guessed there was a forum. Thanks. 😀

I played a few games with the Admiralty edition. Explaining the movement rules to new players was difficult, I barely knew them myself. Never played the Nova edition rules. I didn't like the new weapons resolution mechanics, too bland. The Unity blends the best parts of both those versions. It keeps the unique weapons and adds easier movement rules. Its good for up to squadron level, about 3 or 4 ships per person. Beyond that it slows down because of the weapon rolls. Still I think its the best version.
