That looks great! Love the look and the layout and I'm glad to see some forward progress. Thanks for the sneak peek!

Looking good.

But, as usual, the images raise more questions up than they answer. :)


My short list:
* No top and underbody armor?
* The meanings of the various symbols on the weapons cards (cube, target, flame, red number in black, hex that looks like a nut, white number in red hex, AADA logo), etc.
* Spray weapon for flamethrowers?
* Anything cool on the back of the HUD? Seems like a good spot for some quick references rules.

It's good to see movement on the game. I'm loving the dashboards.

Well, the white cubes are easy enough: we know they want to have custom dice for it. Red number in black is likely the cost, the nut may be designating an overarching type (all of these are vehicular components), and I'd guess the AADA logo is the faction symbol for generic items. Not sure about the white number on a red die, but given the hazard triangle in the card text seems to be what happens on a malfunction or when damaged it may be the card's "when damaged" or "damage resistance" dice. (Note that the RR doesn't have the hazard triangle.) For card symbols you've got damage? dice, targeting (reroll?) symbols, and fire along with the hazard triangle.

The "Dashboard": It appears hideously fiddly to me, but we knew these sorts of things were coming. Be careful when using color to designate things, as color-blind folks may have problems.

ObFacebook: Blah blah whine blah yuck. :)

Glad to see you're still plugging away at it.

I think the damage triangle means that the side that the weapon is mounted on of the FIRING vehicle takes a die of damage when fired. Since all we can see is single shot weapons and two of the pictures are rockets/missiles, my guess would be backblast.

That looks great! And useful to keep track of status of all items. Not that paper and pencil are bad, but this looks cool while being handy.

I must say - that full car status board is very cool.

Why didn't we think of that sooner?!

It looks interesting. Will there be a demo at any of next year's cons, or are things still too early in R&D to really say?

I'm curious to see how the entire picture will appear. It's hard to tell at this stage more than what the dash has and the prospect that we will use cards for weapons and such. If the earlier video is any clue then we will see x-wing styled turn/speed keys. I don't want to assume anything, but so far it appears to at least loosely follow that model for games.
I kinda wish the models were 20mm, but the difference in scale is small enough I imagine one can use the larger size and change nothing.
