What do you guys think of these as stats?

[STATS]
Codex Adherence: 1-100
Command: 1-100
Research: 1-100
Renown: 1-100
Loyalty: 1-100
Reputation: 1-100

>> No.16512039

>>16512024
What distinguishes renown from reputation?
Renown could be % chance of a new entity being aware of your chapter, reputation could be % chance of them already having a favorable view of you?

>> No.16512056

>>16512039
I was thinking Renown would be like how strong you are viewed and Reputation as being like you said.

>> No.16512063

>>16512039
An example of a chapter with a good reputation and low renown would be Exorcists, being pretty good but all top secret. An example of a chapter with a bad reputation and a high renown would be Marines Malevolent, well known for their feud with the Salamanders but hated for their assholishness.

>> No.16512090

>>16512024
Feel there should be a stat for basic resources, which you spend if recruiting or getting additional equipment.

>> No.16512091

>>16512063
That seems like it would play out sort of like what I was suggesting. Exorcists might have only 5 renown, a 5% chance of another group even knowing they exist (modifiers would apply for being or not being spehss muhreens, proximity to Banish, etc), but if they were aware, it would be a 75% chance of favorable view (with massive penalties in for some groups).

(I think this could be made to work as a very complex, one-or-more players tabletop game)

Just stick to stories for the moment, IMO. Once we found interested programmers they can discuss the mechanics of it themselves. More stories = more fame, more fame = becomes a meme, and if it is a meme we have more chance of people getting interested into making it.

Random allies should be avaliable:

>>16512156
I'm guessing that's pretty close to how they coded it. I wonder if codex adherence has a modifier to that. Noncodex chapters seem to get Inqed more often in the fluff, and so far in my experience with the game. It must be stratified, if so, because otherwise chapters in the 0-25% range would have Inquisitors following them everywhere.

>> No.16512208

I think some factions should be fit, such as the Adeptus Mechanicus, for acquiring certain patterns of technology, the Adeptus Mintorum/Guard for support in ongoing campaign.

At the very best, even have governors or sector governors apt to maintain friendly relations with space marine chapters.

I think we should find some time to REALLY get what the codex astartes is all about.

I will do some research and write some stuff up for tomorrow. Maybe this would open up some options... if a game is ever made.

Hey guys, something very strange has happened in my playthrough. I'm playing an Imperial Fists derived Chapter and my Betcher's Gland started working again. It's weird, you know how on occasion you can have your geneseed go bad and make it so that you lose one of your organs for all future Marines, the opposite has just happened to me.

Is this intended or just a bug?

>> No.16514798

>>16514665

Bug. Game breaking bug typically. I saw it once on a playthrough using the Fists themselves. First my extra hearts stopped working, then the sus an bit, and after less than 50 turns I had marines turning into piles of goo as their bodies shut down with every single organ failing one after the other.

My suggestion? Revert to a different save, or if it's just in a few marines, send them on a long crusade where they can all die gloriously. If any of them return, keep sending them, and ONLY them, off to die.

Make certain none of your apothicaries go with them, other wise you will have those nutty bastards come back with piles of fucked up geneseed and just rape the future of your chapter.

>> No.16515091

I assume you meant that the Sus-an started working again, as all IF successors have it and the belcher's not working at the start of the game.

Promote him to banner, and then restore the other guys their original posts. Though you might want to promote spec weapon guy to squad leader and a battle bro to spec weapon. You'll also need to promote a scout to battle bro, of course, if you want to fill the squad.

also, splinter fleets tend to attack whole subsectors at a time; so long as you focus on combating the seeder ships dropping vanguard organisms and reinforcing any genestealer cults on your worlds and the hive ships that are going to be holding the bulk of the reclaimation forces in their bloated carcasses you might be able to weather the storm in your area quite well.
