So, I just wanted to get clarification on some thing (and, yes, thru that an update I admit.) Has the work on the Combat Tracker and Ship Sheet been completed and now we're just waiting for FG to approve the whole thing, or have they not been finished? If not finished, will we need to wait for those 2 elements to be completed before moving any closer to a Beta? Enquiring minds want to know. Thanks for all your work so far.

Also, how are things going with you Sunspot. You're the only coder on this. It must be kind of tense with all that's going on right now. For that matter, how is everyone doing. Sans, Blaze, Modik, Jacob? How is everyone handling the multiple crisis occurring?

I'm gearing up for a new STA campaign in a few weeks. So I have to ask if there's any hope for Fantasy Grounds? Or should I start setting up a Roll 20 account? If there's a possibility, I might be able to stall for another week or so, but the players are antsy.
I don't mean for that to sound like an ultimatum (why should you care what I do), I'm sure I'll switch to Fantasy Grounds when I can. But obviously it would be a lot easier to stick with one format from the start. I just need a little guidance in order to make a decision.
Thanks!

Honestly, I would go a head and start your campaign, but maybe not in Roll 20. I would checkout Astral. They have the STA on there, Personally, I never did like Roll 20

Hi all. I just wanted to check again
If there's any update on getting to a Beta or release of a finished product. I don't think we've had an update in a while. How is it going Sunspoticus?

Any new news? I'm guessing the FG 4.1 release is going to delay things...

Can we get an update on the ST:A Add On? Its been a while and I'm sure we're like to know how its progressing. Thanks.

At this point any response would be pretty keen. It doesn't even have to contain good news.

From what I understand, its really a matter of waiting on Fantasy Grounds to OK it, but what's taking the men so long I have no Idea. Personally, I think their missing a pretty big wave of Star Trek Interest with all the projects on TV now.

Both Nerdeye and Smiteworks (makers of FG) are quite small operations. I'm not sure exactly how many people "Nerdeye" actually is ... but I think only one person is working on this STA Ruleset and that's not their day job. This is more of a passion project than a "job" for them. I might be wrong, but I thought I read this information somewhere.

As for Smiteworks/FG ... they consist of less than 10 salaried employees, and of them, not all of them are even full-time. Most of the conversion-work is done by independent contractors and because user demand drives attention, most of their focus is on 3 areas: FGU functionality, 5e D&D, and Pathfinder. That's 95% of the userbase of FG and they're trying to push FGU to do more and work smoother all the time, which is where most of their programmers/coders are working.

New rulesets have traditionally been made by the community or by independent contractors (like Nerdeye). And in this case, it not only has to be approved by Nerdeye and Smiteworks as functional, but Modiphius and Paramount/CBS all get a say too because it's a licensed product. I'm assuming the last part ... but it makes sense. I've been following the development of this ruleset for over a year now. It will be worth the wait I think. The Conan ruleset works great.

I'm just here to chime in and say that I'd love to sign up for beta testing.

Our DnD group has been exclusively using FG for quite some time, but we're about to go on hiatus and I was hoping to run some STA at some point.

I know it ain't much, but I'm ready to buy in early if that helps at all.

Thanks!

That I don't think so. It wasn't a rewrite, but enough that I would guess would have to go though testing before beta.

Hi all. I hope everyone's week has been good. Wad there any update on re-submitting the campaign set to Modiphius? Just wondering.
