Description: This is a simple XLS that can be used to generate "canon" Knight Hawks ships: canon according to the remastered rules. 

Search In Project   

There is a certain elegance to the original spaceship construction rules for Knight Hawks.  Yes...there are obvious issues and errors, and the work done to update the system and the design and construction rules in other projects are great, but I thought a simple project to build a canon (according to the remastered rules) ship generator would be fun and useful for folks interested in playing classic Star Frontiers or introducing new people to the old style of ship construction.

There are errors in here -- so please send comments and updates!

This only allows for atomic engines. No cost if you select ion or chemical. Also, it only allows HS 3 and below to land on planets. HS 5 and below can.

Excellent points -- the chemical and ion costs were lost when I added the cost for "pellets."  The new version takes HS 5 for atmospheric flight into account and fixes the engine issue.

Thanks for catching that!
