Re: Effects of Ion Weapons in the 3I universe

I like tranquilizer rounds and sleep spells, they're a lot less damaging to my character's karma. One thing we don't have are deflector screens, at least in canon. Never could quite figure out how the Rebels took out what should be two completely alert star destroyers during the Battle of Hoth. It ...

Re: Star Wars Gozanti-Class Cruiser

Does the Gozanti carry marines..or in this case Stormtroopers? Not that we've seen on-screen. It's mainly an escort/cargo hauler. I wouldhave made it 400, 500 or 600 tons; good work, though. Of course, if I were to do SW ships the Tantive 4 wouldve been 600 to 800 tons. My original design was 400dT...

I think they use flywheels for some control systems in satellites, instead of attitude thrusters.

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Discounts appear to be limited to ten percent, with a maximum of three technological levels. And/or a twenty five percent bonus for the budget option. I have been playing with the idea of using quirks to lower the price. Especially since some of the designs I cooked up for very short range personal...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Since each would have a self contained life support, you have redundancy. With the hold empty, the mining ship could transport the ore. I estimate that a bare container should cost between two to five hundred CrImps, not counting life support and furnishings. lightweight non-gravity hull: Stateroom...

For all those thin tubular hulls.
It would work great for a Cutter or other small craft outfitted as a personal transport/mobile office

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Shotguns: Twice the Fun You can't fire both simultaneously, since I suspect they'd interfere ballistically with each other, but it's still pretty fast. Seven rounds and one chambered in each magazine. You could load each magazine with a different type of ammunition, like one armour piercing, and th...

Very nice. I will be contacting you to use some of these in a TAS publication. :) I wouldn't be against that idea :D I like the scratches and weathering on the work units. It matches the reality of work units getting dinged and banged up. A little scarier when you are out in space, but work units w...
