Re: clarifications between beta and published

In some places, a capital ship is defined as more than 5000 dtons, so exactly 5000 dtons doesn't qualify. In other places, it's defined as 5000 dtons or more, so exactly 5000 dtons is a capital ship. The designers of HG are not mathematicians, I don't think they care... In some cases the rules are ...

Yes, that is the way to works.

As in the last case it is probably not really necessary to round, but it doesn't matter much.

11 dton hamster cage section = 1.1%, so +2% cost, or +MCr1
Yes, the words "for each full percent" remains, so we should round down.

1.1% rounded down is 1%.

Re: Fuel for Vehicles

Quite, but spacecraft already carry large amounts of hydrogen and are often equipped to routinely find and extract more. Storing LHyd seems to be a solved problem. Refined hydrocarbons such as petrol or alcohol on the other hand would have to be sourced from an industrialised source possibly many li...

Re: When do sandcasters and screen "react"?

I think a reaction is intended to be declared before any dice are rolled: Just as in other forms of combat, those on board a spacecraft can perform reactions in response to the enemy they are fighting. A Traveller who is about to be attacked can react, either dodging a shot or parrying a blow. Some ...

There is not up or down in space. Just angle or spin she ship and all batteries will bear on the target.

Re: What is the deal of decoy missiles?

Note that the "Decoy Missile" contains decoys and a weaker warhead, it is not a decoy in itself. If you fire a turret (3 missiles) against a Free Trader with a laser turret, it might kill 2 missiles with PD, 1 missile attacks. If you fired Decoy Missiles instead of regular missiles the DM -2 to PD w...

Re: What is the deal of decoy missiles?

Quite, they can defeat PD, but not armour.

Might be good for shooting at a Free Trader with a laser turret or two?

Re: Star Princess-class

I might suggest something like this: 700 Dt, J-3, M-2, 15 passenger staterooms, 200 Dt cargo. 140 Dt fuel in cargo/fuel containers so you can ship more cargo for shorter jumps. Collapsible tanks for another J-3. External cargo mounts for 350 Dt (max J-2). Budget drives and hull. Half the cost of you...

Re: Star Princess-class

As a tramp freighter you will traffic fly-over country, that basically has no other service. If there are any high passengers they will have to book with you. You do not compete with luxury liners on the major trade routes. I would use a M-2 drive to make sure the ship can land anywhere. It's fairly...

Re: Cargo crane & loading belt

We have no details.

I imagine the cargo crane is for large, heavy objects whereas the loading belt (conveyor belt?) is for smaller objects.

Re: Can a streamlined ship go underwater ?

I am still interested in how you define antigrav and contragrav to be different systems. Which rule set are you pulling this from? Anti-grav is defined in MT and T5, used in CT and MgT. Contra-grav is defined in TNE. As already stated in this thread: Anti-grav drives provides lift and propulsion (l...

Re: Fuel for Vehicles

I'm struggling to find any info in the core rule book on Vehicle fuel. Cost and type. I would say it depends on the world and the application. The design system for vehicles is note very detailed, the fuel type is very much left up the Referee. We know that with current technology we can build moto...

Most vehicles have a size in the span 0.1 - 2 Dt per Space, so that is not exactly the only conversion between Spaces and Dt.

Re: adding a simple opportunity fire

I agree that you should not allow more major actions.

You can allow everyones next major action against the temporarily uncovered character to be without cover DM, basically the shot happened when he was running.

One Space is supposed to be 250 kg, so four spaces are 1000 kg = 1 tonne, not 1 Dt = 14 m³. Not directly comparable.
