Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Hello steve98052, Cavitation is noise that tells everyone that a submarine is present making detection so much easier if the platform is intended for combat. On the commercial side cavitation is not as big of deal unless the boat is in a war zone which means they are once again screaming sink me. Th...

Re: High Guard 2e Ship Design Spreadsheet v1.1 (Google Docs)

Hello Imeanunoharm, Hi PDT I've had a quick glance at the sheet. Nice job, especially considering this is your first foray into spread sheets. I have considerable experience in Excel. I'm hoping I can help you with the conversion download to excel problem when I have a little time. Or any other form...

Re: State Room issue that's always bugged me

Morning PDT, Technically any volume or space that is not clearly identified as something is considered "cargo volume or space." Passageways should be, in my opinion taken away from cargo volume/space of course the passageways could also be used to store extra material sort of like they did in WW I a...

Re: MgT Airlocks CRB 2e p. 143 versus HG 2e p. 22

Hello steve98052, . . . After the almost forty years of using the simplified rules in the books I'm happy with them. I agree with this sentiment. My point was that the simplified rules may not make economic sense if you do the math. That's OK if you're working out the cost of a ship that player char...

Re: MgT Airlocks CRB 2e p. 143 versus HG 2e p. 22

Hello again Condottiere, Actually, it should be mining costs plus twenty five thousand CrImps per usable tonne, but as I said, we don't know the actual costs of these two items. We know that the cost of a "constructed" hull with grav plates is Cr50,000 per the hull's total displacement tons, while t...

Re: MgT Airlocks CRB 2e p. 143 versus HG 2e p. 22

Hello Condottiere and steve98052, We don't know how much gravitational plates costs, or inertial compensators. We do know mining costs. The towing and mining cost per MgT HG 2e p. 10 is Planetoid and Buffered Planetoid Hulls: These require an asteroid to be dragged from its orbit and hollowed out to...

Re: High Guard 2e Ship Design Spreadsheet v1.1 (Google Docs)

Afternoon PDT bluekieran, While looking through my files I located a draft of a spreadsheet created back in 2007 with a friend that may or may not help with recalculating the maneuver and jump rating when using drop tanks, external docking clamps, and/or jump nets. To determine the maneuver rating t...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Hello arcador, Nice! Keep in mind minor discrepancies are ok according to the rules - i.e. they can be considered design choices. Thank you for the reminder that the included designs may have minor discrepancies when someone other than the designer tries to replicate the material. If my numbers are ...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Hello arcador, I also made some calculations to figure stuff out. The Predator tank has only 1 heavy gauss turret and 1 twin-gauss turret because it has no slots for more. I have no idea what this x5 means. A big turret takes 4 spaces + 1 space for a crew member + 8 spaces for the weapon itself (hea...

Hello bluekieran, Are you planning on adding the recalculation of drive performance to account for drop tanks, external cargo and clamped ships or did I miss it? You mean M-drive performance? I hadn't considered that at all. It's a good idea, I'll try and take a look later. What's the reason for the...

Re: VHB 2e ammunition question

Hello again h1ro, To answer more specifically, why do the magazine sizes have to be the same? When the book specifies a light auto cannon it could be one of many different models that will have specs so similar as to be considered the same weapon. Small changes like magazine size to work with differ...

Hello h1ro, Are you trying to compile an errata? Mongoose has long said that they leave things open for gamers to decide. Whether you see that as a cop out to cover for a lack of QC or a fair interpretation is up to you! It's best to not get bogged down in too much detail as you will lose the will t...

To be honest I have found many Traveller and other game rule sets to have material ...

Re: MgT HG 2e Special Fuel Tanks (Collapsible, Demountable, Drop Tanks)

Hello Reynard, In my 40 years with Traveller never have I ever heard that fuel bladders are permanently integral to a cargo hold. Maybe I missed a rule in one of the five or six editions. MegaTraveller would be the most obvious choice. Dismountables are a major pain in the engineering ass constructi...
