    Another nice job Turgenev. I like the black & white feel to it, gives the blueprint a classic look.

    I am not much of a sci-fi mapper or lover, so this is about everything I have to say
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    Thanks Gandwarf. I have to admit that I have always been more a SF lover than fantasy. I got back into RPGs via the fantasy route (AD&D and some MERP) but I have always had a soft spot for SF. One of these days I will set up a SF RPG on H Beam Piper's Sword Worlds. I haven't given up on fantasy mapping but I would like to get some more SF maps under my belt.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    Thanks Ravi. I built the engines and the various tech from the ground up one piece at a time.That's usually what takes me the longest doing this plans. When things are flowing, I can spend hours just adding details to the ship. I am collecting these ship plans on my cartography site under the heading of Sci-Fi/Spaceships.

    Back to work on my latest ship.

    I was just checking out your smuggler ship deck plans, and now I find this, too! Very inspiring stuff! This makes me want to go peruse the pages of my old Terrain Trade Authority spacecraft books and start a sci-fi campaign!

    Thanks for the comments, giantacroyear. My current project is the Boreas Gunship that can be found here:

    http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=5140

    After that, I have the rough shape for perhaps a corvette class or a cruise ship. I haven't decided on the details yet. I also have a rough one-man starfighter in the works as well. I need to finish the Boreas Gunship before I move on to those other projects.
    Cheers,
    Tim
