    Post Our first ship

    Well Last year I was looking for some one to help me out with cleaning up a deckplan for a ship. Ravells was kind enough to point me in the direction of a guy he had seen on the CotI boards that was a top notch mapper, A.T. Pollard.

    For the last year we have been working on designing a ship for Traveller. It was originally going to be for T20, but the MGP got the rights to design a rules set that was much more like classic Traveller. After reading through the rules I decided to go with MGP's Traveller instead.

    So I though I would give you guys a look at the deck plans.

    Very pretty. Much more detail than in traditional Traveller deck plans. On the subject of tradition, it is traditional to include only a single 'p' in "triple" and just the one 'n' in "dining".

    Arthur's stuff is top notch. I think in his day job he does engineering drawings and it shows in his work. Bryguy, I haven't forgotten the Merc Cruiser and am still working on it. I'll post up a wip probably later this month, begining of next month. It's not going to look anything as good as Aruthur's work though!

    Well, if you want to see braking with tradition, you should see the HDFS version of the ship. It uses a gravitic compression system to compress Methane granting a 75% reduction is fuel tonnage; at a price. The fuel processor is the real key to this system as it is optimized to strip the carbon from the hydrogen fast enough to make it possible to process the fuel fast enough to jump.

    That version of the ship will be included in the Delux writeup. Its slated for Fall 2009.

    No worries. I have several projects in the works, so I have enough to fill my plate. Take your time.

    Arthur and I are working on a ship we are tentatively calling the "Dragon Fly". A play on the name "Firefly" as the ship has pivoting engines like the FireFly, but is designed as an 800 dton Striker-Ship.

    P.S. If anyone has any suggestions on better names please chime in.
