Sculpts for the Aslan and Vargr look great. Will they be added to the core box set - or will they be sold as separate add on/expansion packs?
Looks like added with stretch goals.

Re: Traveller as a Spaceship Modeling Hobby

I try to spread my sensors around the ship, to let the whole ship serve as a distributed array of sensors - even those that don't explicitly have that upgrade (which, perhaps, just don't have enough sensors to get the mechanical benefit). I figure the equipment for the sensors is used for processin...

Few of the ship costs in High Guard match the actual High Guard rules.
Well, they do but the printed ones don't always.

Re: Highguard - Modular Hull costs

The modules wheren't designed with the rules. Just design a module the same as you would a normal ship with whatever parts it needs, this will include a hull to hold the module together. The extra cost for a modular hull is already figured into the main ship and doesn't need to be figured into the m...

Re: Drinax Treasure Ship questions (spoilers)

Here's a question: Just how much information is there that it requires four 5-ton mail drums to transport it in a secure vault? I should think that with the advancements in storage technology from TL8 to TL15 that four 5-ton mail drums could carry every holovideo ever made throughout the Imperium f...

Auto-Repair software seems to be missing from the computer software selection.

It is referenced in the core rules p155 under Automated Duties, but I could find no mention of it, nor pricing in either the core rules or HG.
Core Rulebook ship computer software is on page 151.

Re: Need Referee help with Secrets of the Ancients campaign

D. Held for questioning: This likely lasts a few days (might take some time for whoever happens to be interested in questioning them to even get there) eventually let go when there isn't enough evidence against them, but closely watched and followed after they are let go.

It is more reasonable, but the crew levels indicated in High Guard (and the ship space dedicated to them) do not factor this in.
Most ships have full staffing, which allows a larger body of replacements. Though there are ships that do use the reduced staffing.

I’m mulling over a house rule that would require a software package to collect and process sensor data from multiple ships into a cohesive picture. End effect would be the same as a collection net or distributed array. Distance between vessels in the net and differences in sensor capabilities ship-...

Re: Foodrunner in the Great Rift

The crates have more then just food in them (possibly some form of smuggling). Perhaps involving customs finding the items, or the criminal elements come to retrieve the items.

The food is spoiled or tainted in some way and the shipment is refused.

NEW players don't have MGT1 books and don't want to buy MGT1 books because they are firmly grounded in MGT2 books. Race books and the Companion are big ticket ...

I believe that was the whole purpose to 'give' players a PA weapon. It convinces targets they have little other choice and gives a.... slight edge on warships so they might get away. Wow, dilemma.

Re: Constructing Deck Plans Oddity...

An unwritten rule has been "within 20%". Most deck plan makers have used as much as 20% over listed tonnage to allow adequate corridors and access space around the components. Oh it is written (almost): STEP TWO: Check the overall tonnage of the ship. Each ton is usually represented by 2 squares on...

Re: Does Oleb trust them too much?

Why do they have to be your own age?

If nobody in your area will (and those ones don't sound like they are worth it), then that doesn't mean giving up gaming, there's the possibility of some form of online play, there's also gaming conventions. Or some form of gaming that doesn't involve RPG's.
