Re: Turret questions

Hello AnotherDilbert The one tonne turret is a legacy fixture; ... Originally turrets took no space at all (inside the hull), but required 1 Dt fire control equipment per turret (LBB2, p15). Despite taking no space at all, they still had space for weapons, ammunition, and a gunner. CT LBB 2 1977/198...

Re: Turret questions

Hi Ursus Maior, I agree that's rules at written, but this is where I have to go with Rule 0 and invoke a bit of common sense. Since there is no Bag of Holding in Traveller, nor is a turret a Tardis, I have to assume you can only stuff so much in it. I accept that the turret itself extends beyond the...

Re: JTAS 3 & the LSP Modular Cutter modules

Hello NOLTrav, Thanks again. I suspect the JTAS article has more - and more imaginative - modules than I presented in my quick pass. For a quick pass I think that you hit the mark without knowing that Mongoose had already addressed the issue. Yes, the article includes the following modules: Starport...

JTAS 3 & the LSP Modular Cutter modules

Hello all, In the Modular Cutter: What do modules cost Reynard identified a new source for the Modular Cutter found on MgT HG 2e pp. 102-103/PDF 103-104. After reading the article my opinion is that NOLATrav was on the right track on how to build modules. MgT JTAS 3 pp. 87-96 revised the costs and c...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello phavoc, "CT Adventure 7: Broadsword p19 specifies that a standard ATV is included, not that it necessarily means anything in MgT." JTAS 5 1980 LSP Modular Cutter excludes the ATV from the modules cost. JTAS 8 1981 Broadsword Class Mercenary Cruiser includes the ATV cost. CT Adventure 7: Broads...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello AnotherDilbert, The CT 50-ton Modular Cutter removed a 30-ton or 20-ton section out of the hull to cargo some type of cargo. Yes, I consider the passengers, gunners, weapons, fuel, etc. to be cargo. They may be payload, but "cargo" and "cargo hold" has a specific meaning in Traveller. Space al...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hi AnotherDilbert, Hopefully third time is the charm in completing a reply. The rules as written are for the installation of fuel and cargo space within a single hull that has a cost in MgT HG 2e of Cr 50,000. GDW JTAS 8 p. 26 has this description "The 50-ton cutter is essentially of two piece const...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello Ursus Maior, Or just say the cost is negligible: Budgeted in MegaCredits. Ship component costs are expressed in MegaCredits (and sometimes decimal fractions). Costs below MCr0.01 (about KCr10 or Cr10,000) are inconsequential and can be ignored. For example, a Maneuver Drive may cost MCr10 and ...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hi phavoc, Trying to reference every version of Traveller to make sense in just one is rather mind boggling. And the versions already contradict one another in other ways. It's best to stick with one version and try to flesh things out from there. Other versions (indeed, even other games) can provid...

Hi Condottiere, Fuel skimmer module would be basically the tank, so free, and a fuel processor; fuel skimming itself dependent on the host's hull. Cargo module is basically free, modifying it for passenger use requires adding in fittings, so time and labour in addition; exception would be accelerati...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello AnotherDilbert, The modular cutter is not a LBB5'80 design as far as I can see. I will have to take that back, it might to be a TL8 design: https://i.imgur.com/RyWsYej.png Note that it does not follow the description completely; it already has a computer, so can't be equipped with another comp...

Hello Condottiere, Let's take the three megabux passenger module as basis. Fifty kay bux per tonne default equals one a half megabux for the module, that leaves another one a half megabux for the fittings, which one assumes is twenty four half tonne acceleration seats, which at thirty kay a piece eq...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hi Condottiere, A good yardstick is the default cost per tonne. If a twenty foot four tonne module is listed at, say, a thousand Credite Imperiale, than it it's basically a standard container. 1. GDW JTAS 5 pp.6-9 LSP Modular Cutter lists seven modules each with price attached. The modules consist o...
