Actually, I've thought about going the other way. Space 1889 has elegant
simple rules for altitude. . .Many people want FT to be 3-D. . .ergo:

What do you think - 

For firing at a target 1 height different would be an additional 6
measurement units to range. 

Changing altitude requires one thrust point, hmmm, maybe two.

Still half-formed thoughts, but I think it might be cool.

P.S. - I started _my_ rules for FMA Fantasy over two months ago. What
y'all so long? :)

 I've thought about it. The problem is that FT doesn't have altitude
 Space 1889 requires it. I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to graft an
 altitude system onto FT, but is it worthwhile? Wouldn't it be easier to
 Sky Galleons of Mars? The one thing I like about Sky Galleons is the
way it
 handles crew losses from different parts of the ship. >>
