Please let me know your opinions.

A few observations:

The colored chits are going to require players to make a lot of small moves rather than fewer moves using all available thrust. I'm pretty sure that will make IMT drives untenable from a fuel use perspective (and they are already pretty far behind IVT in that area). A 1 on 1 between an IVT and an IMT fighter could simply be played as a waiting game by the player with the IVT drive. (I'd challenge somebody to a duel with me in a Wasp and them in anything using IMT in an attempt to prove this claim, but it would surely lead to a very boring fight.) Perhaps you could double (or triple) the rounds fuel given to fighters with IMT?

I also think the limits on Terran (AKA g-limit 3) ships is going to be a lot of trouble. Previously a Terran could accelerate up to 6 times in one direction over two turns (allowing them to stay in bounds even if they were going to be 12 hexes out), now that is limited to 4 thrusts (letting them theoretically still manage 10 hexes of movement, but probably much less if there is are any hard turns needed during or just before the first turn of thrust). I expect a lot of them to be flying out of bounds or into the arena walls in upcoming games.

Finally, there were two engine criticals in the last turn of game 3848, so they don't seem to be disabled yet.

I'm not sure what I think of the new system overall. I think I'll need to complete a few more games to see more about how it works in practice, but I wanted to give you some immediate feedback on the things I've noticed after a few turns of using it.
