Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

I've been lurking and observing because (i) the only FL game I have is Alien, and I haven't ever played it or even read it properly (ii) it seemed sensible to stay out of things (hey, is there a cowardice stat in T2K?). But in the hope of moving the discussion a little a question for those that know...

Re: Miniatures

Ah! Panzerfaust150 - Hello! I've browsed your site a fair bit, so nice to put a name to the site, as it were. Given the Swedish setting option that is apparently coming, have you, in your 'miniature-travels', come across any of the Gecko Resin models? I'm wondering how fiddly / fragile they are / fi...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Ok, back to the topic. Detail is not the same as complexity, so it should be possible to have the former without (excessive amounts) of the later. It seems that some games now have character generation that takes all of three minutes (including the 2 minutes it takes to think up the character's name...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Lem23 - if we gave 'likes', you'd get one for Twiglet:2000! That's what my game group called it, but I've never previously seen anyone else use the term. :D

Re: Books

Well, I've got the two Russian Armour books in the second photo of your first post. Also, Osprey publishing books don't count we all (should) have loads of those. Probably my main T:2k reference books from way back when would be 'The Modern British Army' by Terry Gander, 'Armies of NATO's Central Fr...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

I agree with what Vader says about 'in game realism' (assuming I'm getting his point correctly) - if this was a star wars game, you'd want to run around shooting blasters one handed, shrugging of hits and doing all the things the heroes do in the Star Wars movies; if it were Cthulhu, you'd expect to...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Like Omnipus, I came up with an ammunition status type system for handling 'large' (platoon sized) combats, since I really wasn't going to track ammunition individually for 50+ combatants. If the new edition features any sort of rules for that situation ('Ruins of Warsaw'?), I think that is the way ...

Possible book of interest.

Just spotted this as being due to publish in Autumn this year: Life after Nuclear War. Britain's secret plans to survive World War Three https://www.helion.co.uk/military-history-books/life-after-nuclear-war-britains-secret-plans-to-survive-world-war-three-volume-1-1950-1970.php?sid=225ddc938d2a34f0...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Coincidently, I turned to my bookshelf, and my copy of 'Alternate Fuel for Road Vehicles' (M. L Poulton) was on the shelf in front of me (working from home) - perhaps the writers of the new edition should invest in the 50p + postage that a second hand copy is currently going for on Amazon (UK).
