I drew a JPEG Image of the Corvette I came up with but cant seem to post it. I click on insert image down at the bottom of the page. I uploaded it and when I click on it in the dialong box nothing happens. What Am I doing wrong or is something broken?

Once you've uploaded it, you need to click on the 'add' link at the far right of the line of the new file you just uploaded.  That puts the file name in the dialog box for adding the image. 

Is this the image?
CPFS Battleaxe Class CorvetteIf so, it definitely uploaded.  (I found it in the filesystem on the server).

That Is indeed the Image. I did click the add thing and it did put the pic in the dialog box. but as soon as I clicked on the "insert" button the diolog box disapears and the pic does not get into the post. Well, Terl put it in for me I still can't seem to get the dialog box to work Properly, maybe its my computer.

But if you did not read the Issue number Six of "Frontier Explorer", here are the Stats:

Stats for the Experimental Corvette CPFS Battleaxe:

HS:4 HP:32

DCR 64 ADF:4 MR:4

LB x4 ARx5


Crew :20

Engine: Atomic “A” 2 each

The Battleaxe is a new ship being tested by Combined Pale Fleet. They don’t see the Assault scout as a good warship. They however wanted a starship that could use the assault rocket’s firepower and have a lot of versatility after the fact. But not being able to afford another frigate at the moment came up with something bigger than a scout but not as powerful as a frigate. After watching the slaughter of their fellow colonists at the hands of the Sathar the people of Pale and New Pale are willing to pay high taxes for defenses to prevent it ever happening again. If this ship design works out as well as hoped, they will demand more of them.

I used the Military Ship Design Rules Article from "Star Frontiersman #11" for the stats on this ship. I still have not Come up with all the other equipment and computer stuff. I also have not calculated the cost of this ship in credits.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what equipment to put on this ship. Sensors, Spacesuits, workpods. I am trying to draw deckplans for it but I am slow at doing this. So far I have drawn an incomplete deck for the laser battery gun deck. Its slow going because I can't seem to figure out how to draw with anything more complex than microsoft paint.

I figure an equipment list would help to give me ideas.

I have not playtested it yet. If anyone has can you tell me, does it seem overpowered or unbalanced? the rules allow for it but it almost seems like a faster frigate in your pocket. Or maybe it is just an example of what can be done with the latest and greatest Frontier Tech. Since Pale and New Pale are Streel Corporation colonies. This ship should be built by one of the subsidiaries of Streel Corp. Pan Galactic may try to steal the plans, sathar agents may try to steal the plans for it. Or steal the whole ship and reverse engineer it. Adventure ideas.

Next Question: when should this ship be available? I am thinking only one would be built Before Sathar War #2. Or perhaps it is available post SW2.

Any help witth hese subjects could be useful. Thanks all.
