Re: Passive radar/lidar

Passive radar and lidar require a separate transmitter for the radio waves or laser beams, the detectors can be separate systems and on a different vessel. Since active transmission of radio and laser for sensor purposes makes you much easier to spot, then putting the radio and laser transmitters in...

Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

Repulsors need to be re-introduced to the game as the primary missile defence. Most Traveller versions include them, they were removed in TNE when missiles were changed to bomb pumped lasers - although using FF&S you could build kinetic kill missiles... At the ACS scale of things ECM, sand and point...

Re: Shipyard Maintenance

If the system can build its own SDBs then it has a shipyard. Similarly if a system has military bases and operates SDBs then it can have shipyards/maintenance and repair facilities. It has been long accepted in the OTU at least that the starport and shipyard denoted in a world's UPP is for civilian ...

Re: Quick Intro Adventure

High and Dry is good is you want a non combat oriented adventure. Players used to D&D hack and slash will need expectations set going in. Flatlined is good. Death Station - might as well just kill them during character creation. Just kidding. Kind of. Death Station is known for TPK. I have run Deat...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

There is no stealth in space, painting a hull black just makes it better at radiating in the thermal part of the spectrum which makes it easier to spot.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

1. I mean dead stop: the universe can continue to revolve around you. You would have to take into account the relative motion of every galaxy in the universe, there is no such thing as a neutral reference frame since spacetime itself is expanding. 2. As I recall the current formula, it's more bonus...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

1 - when you say stop, what do you mean? You will still have motion relative to the system, the galactic core etc. 2 - why? misjumps can only be caused by jumping within 100D and/or unrefined fuel use 3 - yes - but the femtosecond difference isn't much to worry about, although... there is a rather n...
