A clearing house of designs and SSDs for new Full Thrust miniatures from Ground Zero Games

Full Thrust rules including the supplements More Thrust and Fleet Books 1 and 2 are now available for download directly from Ground Zero Games in their Rules area.

 

Since Fleet Book 2 was released in 2000, GZG has released miniatures for several new fleets along with additional miniatures for their existing fleets.  While none of these designs are 'official' until published by GZG, the designs presented on the pages are 'Authorized by Ground Zero Games for use until Official stats are published.'   

These ship designs are for use with Fleet Books 1 and 2 rules along with the 'playtest' rules indicated below and this combination is sometimes called Full Thrust 2.5.

GZG has posted on their Rules page, a couple versions of FT Light, a paired down version of the game that is great for introducing people to the rules or use at a convention.  The FT Light (B&W) version fits on a page and the FT Light (color) expands the document in color with more diagrams and examples.

Other parties have compiled rules from all the separate books along with adding some of their own rules and make them available online such as Full Thrust: Project Continuum, Full Thrust: Cross Dimensions, Full Thrust: Warlords Edition, and Full Thrust: Remixed.
The ship designs here do not take any of the changes from those compellations into consideration.

Emerald Coast Skunk Works is also doing a lot of work on updating and expanding Full Thrust so make sure you check them out.

Players are encouraged to send their feedback on these designs to stats@star-ranger.com.

How To Use These SSDs
When you want to play a game using the ships on these pages, you can copy the Ship Staus Display (SSD) images you want for your fleet and paste them on to a fleet sheet with a Fleet Movement Chart on the bottom where you can write your orders, print, then play.
For your conveniance, three different fleet sheets are available:
FTFleetSheet1500 - A gif image with the most room for multiple ship SSDs
FTFleetSheet1080 - A gif image with less room for smaller fleets
FleetSheetFT - A Word document you can paste the SSDs on as floating images
 

New Systems

New systems and weapons have been included in some of the Beta-test fleets for testing that may show up in other fleet's designs.

Non-GZG Fleets
Other gamers have created stats for fleets of miniatures from other manufacturers that are done in a similar style  without being min/maxed and fit in this universe.  Links to those pages with those stats are included here if you want to expand your universe.  Contact the designer of the specific stats on their page if you have any questions.

Combat Point Value - CPV

Large ships in Full Thrust have an advantage over an equal mass/cost of smaller ships due to the way thresholds work.  The Combat Point Value (CPV) was developed as a more accurate combat effectiveness point value that takes ship mass into consideration.

 

Beta Fighter Rules - New page with the original mailing list post as the archive is no longer there

An attempt to fix the fighter imbalance in the current rules.  The results may look very complex but are not difficult to play.  Whenever the 3rd edition of Full Thrust is released, its fighter rules will probably be different than this.
