Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

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 acceleration couches. ATV ...

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 equals to seven hundr...

If a twenty foot four tonne module is listed at, say, a thousand Credite Imperiale, than it it's basically a standard container.

Re: HG 2e Crew questions

There's less political capital involved if drones are shot down, than if the aircraft have human crews.
