    That's precisely why I took it off my TODO list. The amount of Lua scripting needed for the Seven Worlds extension is way way way above my ability right now.

    I'm hoping they can find an acceptable compromise. He stated it was one of the original stretch goals on the Kickstarter but dropped it after realizing the difficulty of getting it done.

    This is why I wish they would give us the option to run an automation free SW. It's one thing if a setting has it's own edges and such. that's easy. but when it alters game mechanics, and there's no FG module, then my inclination to run it is greatly diminished. It's just too much of a hassle.

    Yep. They could release a setting module with the understanding that ship combat would be strictly manual, possibly being added later on.

    Truthfully, starship combat in 7W is so fast and nasty that it is usually over before you have to worry about the ships overheating. My guys figured that out really fast and hit, then cool themselves down while the pilot goes nuts flying evasively. I don't think it needs automation at all.

    I use FG online as well as at the tabletop. I usually stream my games; Savage Worlds - Sat at 6, Sunday at 2 and 6pm and 5e on Monday at 6:30 pm Pacific time. Look for 7thSim on Twitch!

    Hopefully that will allow them to streamline it so FG can handle it without having to do a ton of programming.

    I'd certainly take the project on if I had time, which is in short supply these days. Just the converting to FG...I don't know anything about LUA.
