Stellar Forces is a turn-based multi-player squad strategy game.

Take control of an elite squad and defeat opponents in one of 100+ missions. Choose what to equip them with, where to deploy them, and then use whatever strategy and tactics you want to ensure victory.

Once you have registered using the PC or Android app, you can play as many games as you want. This game has no adverts and no in-app purchases.

This game is played in a casual way. Once you have taken your turn, your opponent is notified by e-mail that it is now their turn. However, they may not take it straight away. Typically, expect to take a turn and then wait about a day to take your next turn. Of course, you can play as many concurrent games as you can handle if you get bored in the meantime!

Unit stat accuracy

Yes, it will slightly increase the accuracy of all weapons (when an innacurate shot is made). You're right, most of the weapons are probably not even used. Why would anyone bother buying a marsec pistol? But if I increase their accuracy, they just become the same as another weapon.

Anyway, I'll make the change I sugested and we'll see how that goes.

Unit stat accuracy

Does this increase the accuracy of all weapons? An issue of mine is that the far lower weapons nobody uses, they are like museum pieces. I make games at 50% in order for us to use them. But the vast majority of people play at 100% or above so everyone uses Marsec Autoguns or at least M400's. Unless you are Rabid. ;) The others are mostly superfluous. Let's bring them up a bit at least so they are viable in most games otherwise what is the point.

Tightening the angle of shot is a must. It is a novelty when you first play and you see a shot fly off in a ridiculous direction but when you take the game, well, semi-serious let's say, it takes the piss. It's not as bad as when I first played, that was outrageous some of the shots. But it came down. For me it needs co[...]

This thread has gone a bit quiet. I propose I tweak it slightly by increasing the maximum accuracy to 90%, and slightly reduce the inaccuracy for inaccurate shots. We can see if that improves things.

[Sorry, it should say "I'm not so sure; withOUT #3"]

Unit stat accuracy

I'm not so sure; with #3, any unit with a sniper rifle or Las Rifle has an 85% chance of directly hitting a unit from right across the other side of the map. Also, any average unit (shot skill=35) with a sniper rifle has a 78% chance of hit directly on opportunity fire.

#3 was introduced since the game was getting too unbalanced in favour of defensive play: a couple of units with sniper rifles on opp-fire were killing anyone that poked their head round the corner.

no 3 is unnecessary if shot is accurate it should be accurate

Unit stat accuracy

Hey xeno.

Architect! I?m not but I?ll take that as a compliment.

My love for rocket launchers and auto cannons means the shot accuracy doesn?t bother me so much, but my take is that whatever changes Steve makes, it?s the same for everyone so it levels the playing field. Although in defence heavy games, it would skew things in favour of the side defend if opportunity fire was too accurate

Happy to try anything but the current system suits me fine.

Let me know when StellarCon is!!

Unit stat accuracy

I've just been reminding myself of how the system currently works. I'll try and keep it as breif as possible, but I think it's important since its what happens for inaccurate shots that I think needs changing:-

1) Add up the unit's shot skill and the weapon accuracy to get a total chance of accuracy. This is the the % chance of an accurate shot, although it is clamped to between 15%-85%
2) Decide if the shot is accurate by "rolling a 100-sided dice" and comparing to the total chance of accuracy.
3) If it is accurate, still adjust it by a random angle between -1 and 1.
4) If it is not accurate, adjust the shot by a random angle from between 0 and (bear with me) "dice roll - total chance of accuracy, divided by 3". So if the[...]

Ha, not at all, it's good to have these debates. Besides, the forums have been too quiet lately, it's good to see some chat. And StellarCon sounds like a great idea. :)

We all need to meet up sometime and have a Stellar Force get together and piss up. Go on a paint ball laugh.

You have a great game here Steve, and I greatly appreciate everything you have done, you are a top banana, so don't take any of this criticism about aspects of the game anything personal. It is because I love the game I dare to speak out. And it is because you are just a wise and wonderful leader you listen to us and don't tell us to f**k off. :D

Unit stat accuracy

Although taking up Pete's issue, I remember recently firing 3 shots at a unit with 23 armour with a Marsec autogun and not killing him, yet he killed me the next turn with one shot with a Marsec despite having 36 armour.

See Pete brings up an issue with damage. Can't say that hasn't been an annoyance of mine too. But accuracy stats is the primary issue for me.

Just seen Pete's post. Makes it seem orchestrated but it wasn't. We have spoken previously but coincidental.

Robsraiders I feel went over the top with his posts, and said as much, but I also agreed with some of what he said. This is why I raised this because I have felt it myself albeit to a lesser extent and think it does need a re-think. I know Pete feels the same way. Rabid what is your view bud?

But then Rabid uses brute force, his trademark, and a great one, rocket launchers and auto cannons don't need too much accuracy! ;) But an excellent tactical opponent too. I wouldn't be surprised if he was an architect. Design, and then destroy in his spare time.

What's happened to Henry's Cat? Like his namesake, run and found a new home.
