To All -
I have started work on the update and several changes are in the works -
Japanese planes - three hits for a shoot down, two to damage, 1 hit slight damage, plane continues normally - also a plane shot down could hit the ship as momentum could carry it to strike the ship. Hence an additional column has been added to determine if Japanese planes hit your ship.
Damage control - getting rid of the fire and flood boxes, as this was creating confusison - instead hit boxes will replace them. When a primary compartment suffers three hits, flooding may be allowed to extinguish flames. Once a compartment is flooded it is no longer useable.
Victory points - points for downed Japanes planes will be eliminated. Points will only be scored if the ship either remains on station or it does not.
Also map is undergoing redesign to reflect compartment changes.
The secondary compartment board is being elimintaed. Instead - a sheet will be provided. This is being done to bring down the anticipated printing costs.
Rules will be revised to reflect changes.
Hope to have all changes done by first week in June and a zip file will be sent to all playtesters.
May is a busy month with the crazy days still ahead with oldest daughter graduation from high school just weeks away...
