Galaxia: Realistic Orbital Space Combat Wargaming

Watermarked PDF

A brand-new approach to space wargaming! Galaxia departs from the traditional "wet navy IN SPACE!" formula used by most space combat games. In its place is a simple yet powerful system that models real-world orbital maneuvering, and allows combat to occur from atmosphere all the way up to lunar orbit!

Combat Features:

-Customizable munitions loads for combatant craft

-Straightforward but detailed system for resolving sensor interactions and ECM

-Ability to seamlessly and simultaneously manage all combat in a planetary-lunar system from atmosphere to Lagrange points and lunar orbit

-Interaction between atmospheric aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, defensive stations, and ground installations

-Vast array of tactical possibilities and decision-making opportunities: fuel expenditure management, synchronizing orbits to general massive missile salvos, in-orbit refueling, firing from suborbital altitudes, creative use of space debris, planning strikes several turns ahead...

The main rulebook includes:

-Full rules for the Galaxia system

-Diagram and guide for constructing your own Galaxia board

-Numerous full-color photos illustrating models and gameplay examples

-Background for the Galaxia universe, including national statistics and histories

The spacecraft and munitions profile Excel file will be available on WargameVault as a separate file; this file is FREE, as it is essential to gameplay.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
