Chapter Master is a chapter management simulation game, where you take the role of an Adeptus Astartes Chapter Master. Several attempts have been made in the past, and some very cool stuff was created, but it has never advanced beyond a simple demo. It's always simply been a piece of fiction, chucked about threads for amusement and wish fulfillment.

Until today.

It's been most of a year of keyboard face-rolling, but it's happening! Chapter Master has entered Alpha. Not everything has made it in that I wanted, and it's very rough, but this is the foundation for the future Beta and finished Chapter Master game. There is much more to come, including a higher resolution and better interface.

Test, report bugs, come chat in IRC to discuss ideas, etc.

And remember- You are all special snowflakes on the Emperor's front steps.

Also, it's ridiculous that you can't trade an STC fragment with the mechanicus. Seems to me that they're be all over that shit.

Ok, ive got my bug report/storytime.
The randomized chapter, Furious Gorillas, is a penitent chapter. A waaaagh occured and i sent the fleet to help. I was then excommunicated by the Imperium "for not fightan" even though I was.
I liberated some systems, fought after the traitor Imperium, found out a tech marine was probably a heretic, apparently killed millions of people on an uninhabited world, found a necron tomb and then CTD when i went to purge it.

Ok. So last thread I was derided for not realising you right-click to set a destination for your ships in the star map, 'cuz that's what you do in an RTS.

Problem is, up until I wanted to sent out my fleet, the game feels/plays less like an RTS, and more like a menu-driven management game.

>>34020815
Literally impossible.
The Canis Helix, which is present in Space Wolf geneseed has a strange interaction with non-Fenrisian initiates, with strange meaning they turn into horrific mutants, such as what happened to the only official successor of the Space Wolves, the Wolf Brothers. This is most likely to do with some sort of warp fuckery mixed with the genetics of Leman Russ or something like that.

There was an attempt to remove the Canis Helix about a thousand years after the Horus Heresy, but the experiment was stopped both externally, by the Thousand Sons, and internally, by the Wolf Lords, who were appalled by the idea of taking away that which was unique to them.

Just a quick bug report.

I'm kinda flying around with no idea what I'm doing after clicking on things I don't understand. And it's incredibly fun. After getting in a lot of assorted kerfuffles with Orks and Tau, I lose contact with a planet 18 turns away; it's the Nids. I start on a path towards them; on the way, it frequently has the popup "Scout added to 10.101" with a different number each time; sometimes, it gives the warning that there aren't enough scout supplies in the armory, which is probably my bad. Partway through the trip, I make an enemy in the Inquisition for reasons I don't understand but are probably justified, because it's the Inquisition. Upon arriving on the planet, this error pops up:

We don't know the answer to that yet. All we do know for sure is they never recruited from anywhere other than Terra and Fenris and Leman Russ was the second primarch found, so the transition was probably quite early. Seeing as the Emperor was originally overseeing the legion's recruitment and growth, he probably had ways of keeping it under control during the Unification Wars.

Try not to wipe the orks out.
Leave them at Scarce or Tiny status so they'll repopulate faster for more killing.
Also, the more marines you lose, the higher the % Penitent gets.
Try not to have overwhelming numbers.
1 full-strength company for anything Moderate or below.
2 injured companies to be safe with Moderate.
Anything beyond that isn't worth the risk of losing a company.
Heavy should use at least 150 tacticals, any anything beyond that should be bombarded down to heavy.
Otherwise the loses are too great, especially since recruitment doesn't fully work.

I talked to duke about this in the IRC but I think a larger discussion would be better
It is alluded to somewhat in the fluff that gene-seed can be harvested without the host's death
Should this be ingame?
Each marine has two glands, one takes 5 years to mature and the other 10, so every 120 turns you would get up to 3 geneseed per marine
I don't know if this time is already implemented but it should also take that long to be harvested from dead ones too.

It's possible to "farm" geneseed by implanting it in guinea pig humans. Chapters don't pay taxes to the imperium but they do tithe small amounts of geneseed to test for purity which is then multiplied and stored to make new chapters. I've never heard of chapters doing this themselves however.

Apart from that each marine is implanted with one geneseed and it causes them to grow a second geneseed. What happens next varies by the chapter, some surgically remove one or both from marines before they die. Others only harvest from the dead.

Not entirely sure. The geneseed is the organ that regulates the other organs implanted into new marines. That's why some chapters have nonfunctioning or missing organs. But it's not clear if they need the organ all the time or just during initiation when the transformation begins. It's probably safe to assume that they need at least one.

Supposedly one geneseed is in the neck and another is deep in the chest. That's why the apothecaries have the chainfist, they need it to cut through the armour and get the geneseed out of dead marines.

If the canon chapters have a specific method of doing things that should be part of the game. For the custom chapters the player should be able to decide and it could have different effects. For instance if half of the geneseed is stored away it might get stolen or otherwise messed with. But at the same time having a reserve would make recruitment a lot easier.

You put a fleet there, then hit Raid.

You gain geneseed by having your space marines die, then spend it by gaining more. This is why there is a maximum limit to your chapter size. Presumably, you have hit close to this limit.

Yes, in regards to Chaos, no, in regards to the Necrons, since they're fucking invincible and I have no clue why they're so hard to take down, but I'm guessing it's Nanomachines, son.

Since we're on page ten, how about a new thread with the FAQ and manual in the OP?

Chapter Master is a chapter management simulation game, where you take the role of an Adeptus Astartes Chapter Master. Several attempts have been made in the past, and some very cool stuff was created, but it has never advanced beyond a simple demo. It's always simply been a piece of fiction, chucked about threads for amusement and wish fulfillment.

Until today.

It's been most of a year of keyboard face-rolling, but it's happening! Chapter Master has entered Alpha. Not everything has made it in that I wanted, and it's very rough, but this is the foundation for the future Beta and finished Chapter Master game. There is much more to come, including a higher resolution and better interface.

Test, report bugs, come chat in IRC to discuss ideas, etc.

And remember- You are all special snowflakes on the Emperor's front steps.
