I've never played and RPG/Board game such as this, so I'm kinda confused as to how it would work?

Ever play Final Fantasy Tactics/Disgaea/Fire Emblem or similar titles? Those games are loosely inspired by the same boardgame genre.

If not, you basically have a map.  This map is divided into spaces, usually hexagons.  You place tokens/miniatures on the map to indicate units.  (in the case of this game, spaceships)  Depending on the rules, players take turns moving their ships around the map, and each turn may declare attacks (or other actions) on other units in range.  Last ship standing wins.

It's more complex than that, but I hope you'll give me the time to draft some rules for details. ^_^

I'm fully aware royalties would be involved.  Fetching lawyers to fetter the documentation would however be sufficient deterrent to apply my time elsewhere. haha.
Well, you could try writing the contract yourself. I'm sure you'll be able to find some examples online. As for TFB, well... worth a try. I think TFB wrote the original contract with the SC2 musicians themselves, including some humourously phrased clauses.

I've hit  a bit of a speed bump though.  While statting the ships (using much simpler numbers than the actual game.  An Ur-Quan Dreadnought has 10 CREW and BATTERY for instance) I've found it difficult to ascertain the fuel recharge rates.  A helpful FAQ over at gamefaqs has simplified determining relative speeds and turn rates, but covers fuel regeneration oddly.  It rates each ship based on how quickly the ship returns to full capacity.  This is pretty useless for my purposes.

Does anyone know how I can get figures for recharge rates without actually timing them myself in Super Melee?
There are actually two parameters of the fuel regeneration, how often energy is added, and the amount of energy that is added each time.

'energy_wait' is the number of frames in between recharges that nothing is added.
'energy_regeneration' is the number of units of energy added.

So on average, you've got '(energy_wait + 1) / energy_regeneration' energy per frame, and as there are 24 frames per second, that gives you '(energy_wait + 1) / (energy_regeneration * 24)' energy per second.

The numbers for the ships can be found in src/sc2code/ships/*/*.c. Look for 'ENERGY_WAIT' and 'ENERGY_REGENERATION'. It should be pretty self-exaplanatory, even for non-coders.

Thanks, meep-eep! I never thought about checking the source.  I had no idea it'd be so readable, but it definitely helps you specifically stating the formula.  This should make it much easier.

Thanks for the Ship Specs page, too, Spek.  I already know of it but avoided it since it's just an approximated summary and not true figures.  It seems to be on an odd scale, too.  (either 8 or 9).

Once I have the ships statted up in my rules, I'll begin on an actual document so you guys can see where I'm heading.

Is it me or are your formulae for time/energy, not energy/time (dividend and divisor switched)?

I figured it out. ^_~  Now I'm statting all the attacks.  Unlike the movement/crew/battery, making game statistics for them is not quite pit-pat.  But it's also ten times more fun. ^_~  With any luck I may have all the ships done today.

First of all, I'm new hi, how's it going.
OK thats over with.
Now, If you want to create a cardgame (anyone), a good site might be http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/
It has a simple scripting language fo creating card templates, and it's very user friendly.

Shot hit points are simplified in the boardgame anyway.

Only three more ships left!  Once I do that and write a basic rules overview, I'll paste it in this thread.

Some notes to keep in mind when I do.

Ranges are completely adlibed.  If in play any RANGE seems ill-representative of its computer game counterpart, let me know.

Although for the most part, CREW, BATTERY, DAMAGE, and COST are relative to their computer game counterparts, sometimes values have been modified to account for rate of fire, accuracy, and other variables.  (For example, the Ur-Quan fusion blast does more damage than it does in the game.  This is to account for its high rate of fire.  Likewise, the Orz Nemesis's BATTERY has been reduced in order to simplify its cannon usage.  The number of attacks it can perform on a full tank is similar to the game.)

What follows is a basic overview of the rules and ship stats.  All of this is rough, and some things are missing.  (namely, proper tokens, templates, and rules for planets and asteroids.)  I'll refine a proper rulebook in time.

Gameplay takes place on a hex-map.  Steal one from your favorite game or print them with a program.  Try http://ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/doc/games/roleplay/programs/mapping/hexmap45.zip though I haven't used it myself.  It should be noted if any ship or token exits any edge of the map, it will reappear on the opposite side.

You'll also need tokens to represent the spaceships and some of their weapons (attacks that "stay on the field" like the Marauder's spinning mines.)  I plan to make some makeshift ones using the ship's graphics, but you'll need to improv for now.

You'll also need a set of polyhedral dice, specifically, one each of a d4, d6, d8, d10, d12.  If you don't have these dice and don't want to buy them, there is a variety of dice-rolling software on the internet.

Players each pick opposite sides of the map and place their ship anywhere within two hexes of the edge.  From this point on, the game will be divided into turns between the players.  Through whatever means (flip a coin, pick the youngest, whatever) one player goes first.

During his turn, a player may
A) Move the ship into the hex in front of it by spending 1 THRUST point and may continue to do so until THRUST points have been reduced to zero.
B) Turn the ship one side to the left or right by spending 1 TURN point and may continue to do so until TURN points have been reduced to zero.
C) Perform its Main action once as long as BATTERY points are available.
D) Perform its Special action once as long as BATTERY points are available.

Player can do these in any order.  (ie. a player can move two hexes, turn a hex, fire its main weapon, and then move two more hexes).

Once a player declares an attack, the Attack phase begins.

To declare an attack, the opponent must be within the attack's arc and range.

1- Start with the hex in front of the ship, then picture a cone shape by including all hexes diagonal from that hex.  So it'd be one hex, the two diagonal-forward hexes from that hex, the outside most diagonal-forward hexes from that hex, and so forth.  Range is calculated by moving hex to hex, counting each hex along the way.

3- same, except start with the ship itself.  However, don't start counting range with this hex.

6- Extends in any direction.

R- Go reverse instead of front-ways.

If the ship is, you may attack.  Roll your weapon's ATTACK die.  For every 5 points of range, reduce your ATTACK die by one level. Your opponent rolls their ship's PILOT die.  If the ATTACK roll beats or ties the PILOT die, you hit and you reduce their CREW by your attack's DAMAGE.  If the PILOT die is greatest, nothing happens.

After you have rolled your ATTACK roll, but before the opponent rolls their pilot die, they may state they want to use a reflex action.  They roll a d12 instead of their PILOT die.  If they beat your attack roll, their reflex ability is used.  Besides any effects as a result of that ability, your attack also misses.  If their reflex roll is lower than your ATTACK, they roll PILOT as normal.

AFTER the PILOT roll, if the opposing ship has not yet used a Reflex action, they may do so.  However, when used this way, they may only roll a d6.

Even if the REFLEX roll fails, BATTERY is still lost, and any effects from the reflex ability still happens.

NOTE: If any attack has the "Automatic Hit" descriptor, the player may still use the reflex action, but only as if they were rolling after the ATTACK roll.  (ie. a d6)

In every turn after each player's first, there is a special Inertia phase that takes place before everything else.  when you moved your ship, you need to keep track of how many hexes you moved in each direction.  Whichever direction you moved most, becomes your Inertia.  (ie. if you moved 2 hexes north, turned, and moved one square northwest, your inertia is 2 north.  If two directions tie, pick whichever was moved last.)  At the beginning of your turn, you must move as many hexes as your Inertia requires.  This does not cost THRUST points.

Also, during the Inertia phase, you may replenish your BATTERY with points equivalent to your REGEN rating.

Anyway, I apologize for the terrible roughness.  Just wanted to get you guys something as soon as possible!

Zap-Sats: Avatar is surrounded by three Zap-Sats.  They effectively allow the Avatar to ignore all non-laser 1/2 damage attacks.  Any other successful non-laser attack will reduce the Zap-Sat count by 1 and not damage the Avatar.  Laser attacks will always damage the Avatar directly.  After one Zap-Sat is destroyed, future attacks are handled differently. 1 Zap-Sat destroyed, roll a d4. 1, damage affects Avatar directly. 2-4 calculate as if Avatar had 3 zap-sats.  2 Zap-Sats destroyed, roll a d4. 1-2 damage affects Avatar directly. 3-4 calculate normally.
Point Defense: For each hex adjacent to the Avatar an opponent enters, it receives 1/2 damage.  If the Avatar has lost a zap-sat, make opposed PILOT roll with a d10.  If it has lost two, a d4.  If the opposing ship has the highest PILOT roll, no damage is dealt.
