Silent Death Ship Builder

Description

Quickly and easily build ships for the game Silent Death.

Silent Death is a space combat miniatures game. This ship builder implements the Starcraft Design System found in Silent Death: The Next Millennium. You will need the rules to play.

The focus is on automating record-keeping to ease the process of designing ships. Additional features such as limited record-keeping during play might be nice to have in the future.

Features

  • Browser-based, no install required.

  • Design ships in all the standard classes: fighters, scouts, shuttles, freighters, and gunboats.

  • Arm them with all the standard cannons and warheads.

  • Add basic ship options.

  • Select crew skill levels (or optionally turn them off to see the cost of the ship without crew).

  • Damage tracks are generated on the fly with every change you make.

  • Ship designs as URLs can be saved and shared.

  • Seamless offline mode (in modern browsers).

Known Bugs

  • Front-only firing arc when crew is one is not enforced in IE(8).

  • Ship options are not sorted, after being deleted they return to the select in the order they are deleted.

Future

There are plenty of features yet to be implemented:

  • Warhounds.

  • Ship quirks.

  • Changing from design to play mode to lock down designs and allow damage to be tracked.

  • Track ammo expenditures and stat adjustments (from critical effects, etc.) in play mode without changing construction stats.

  • Saving designs in cookies or local storage.

  • Optimizations and loading speed improvement.
