Paizo posted a link to a good & extensive interview with Starfinder's Creative Director, James Sutter:

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/featur...interview.aspx

It still looks to me like Starfinder's going to be different enough in detail that Hero Lab will need to treat it as a new system, much like the 2nd & 3rd editions of M&M and the 4th & 5th editions of Shadowrun are separate systems (and for that matter, d20 and Pathfinder). The only specific point of compatibility that is ever mentioned is the ability to use Pathfinder Monsters as Starfinder Monsters, and it wouldn't surprise me if that ends up getting done in Hero Lab by an explicit "Import Monster from Pathfinder" function, if it's supported in HL at all. Even the list of Core Classes is different in Starfinder, even if several of them have obvious parallels in Pathfinder.

So I read that the day it came out pretty much. It has no "exact" details on the rule changes. It mentions some "ideas and thoughts" but no hard details.

As I told Colen I understand from a software point of view of why Starfinder as its own game makes sense. So far from the point of view of the Game it does not. Especially if you add in how little support the game system is going to have for DMs. Few to no monsters means Pathfinder monsters are going to get used. What about Unchained Rules for Action Economy or making Mythic Starfinder characters.

I am not one for wanting to 're-invent' software mechanics just because.

My plan as it does seem Starfinder will be its own game system is to start with putting in logic for converting a Pathfinder monster into a Starfinder character. I have several ways to accomplish this goal but don't know the best one until I see the Starfinder rules.

I also plan to input equipment and feats into Pathfinder from Starfinder. Allowing a NPC to be changed over to Starfinder pretty easily. This is going to be important for all those DM's out there to make use of the NPC Codex and all those .stock files in Pathfinder.

Classes for now is last in my list as I am thinking you need the new classes you need ALL New and can just build the NPC in Starfinder.

But this is all theory as no one has still seen the rules that are still in flux and being created.

All we have right now is pure conjecture. Your arguments are sound. So are mine. Yet they are conflicting, because Paizo has to resolve some major differences between the settings.

Let's wait until we have concrete information to debate this further. Once we have that information, Lone Wolf will choose a path forward (or is that "star" now?) for the data files that makes the most sense based on how Paizo has chosen to actually do things.
So, it's been about 9 months since the Pathfinder announcement. Can the folks from Wolf Lair Give us an idea of the current state of plans for Starfinder support and when it will be available?

Looking to budget for this come release day. Can Wolf Lair confirm if they are working with Paizo to have Hero Lab Starfinder release when the books release at GenCon?

Here are are my guesses...

1) Starfinder will be a separate game system from Pathfinder.

2) LW is most likely trying very hard to have Starfinder out for GenCon. But they are a small shop with lots of moving parts. So it "could" be after but it makes sense for them to really try for a GenCon release.

3) Hopefully "maybe" the monster conversion rules from Pathfinder to Starfinder will appear in HL Pathfinder game system. Most likely not at GenCon time but soon after. If this is a paid package or free or linked to your Starfinder license is pretty open.
