Re: Tech Superiority

I would like to point out that technical development isn't a smooth curve. Taking the computer example, I wouldn't use tech level, but the comparative of Model numbers of the computers involved.

In general a lot of this is already factored in if you give the equipment section a close read.

In particular, starships.
Can you buy, repair, upgrade a TL 14 Starship on a TL 13 world?
Can you have a TL 14 shipyard on a TL 13 world???
Can you find and buy TL 13 gear on a TL 12 world?
Yes, but it will cost you....

Re: Rule of thumb for passengers as cargo

The cargo holds are air filled, and you've always been able to carry livestock as cargo without problem, That is a big assumption, especially considering the amount of life support overhead shipping awake live stock would need. The traditional assumption Livestock is shipped in Low. Also Note while...

I think I am going to introduce a new rule:


Slug throwers do 1/2 damage against vehicles
AP, HEAP and Energy weapons do full damage

Melee weapons do 1/2 damage
Energy melee weapons do full damage


Chime in and let me know your thoughts...
It's a fix.... I will have to play with it...

Re: Removing Hardpoint Limits: Necessity or Heresy?

It was true from 1977 to 1993 and from 1996 to 2017. Granted Traveller TNE experimented with reaction based Maneuver Drives in 1994 and 1995, but they were not well received and "Fire, Fusion and Steel" offered Grav Drives as an option. I think 'Traditional' does apply to the entirety of Traveller,...

[MD has traditionally been based on ship volume rather than mass ... empty and full cargo hold freighters have the same acceleration.] That is only partially true....

Re: Removing Hardpoint Limits: Necessity or Heresy?

A house rule that I have long employed to attempt to maintain a sense of "there is no free lunch" is to allow a larger hull to be built with less internal space. For example, build an 800 ton hull with 8 hardpoints but only 600 tons of internal space. The 'lost' tonnage is the cost of the structure...

Re: Cargo Containers - sizes?

Ok, Sports fans, went and actually looked up the Standard Container in CT. It's buried in the descriptions of the Far Trader.

A standard Container is approx. 3 x 3 x 6 meters, for a displacement of 3.85 tons.


In GW's IISS ship Files they introduce a 300 dTon external container.

Re: Cargo Containers - sizes?

I think a 30 ton module size that fits into the Modular Cutter would be standard, that would allow modules to be filled and transported easily in a single load via cutter. Larger units would make loading larger ships faster and easier. If there is a massive ship carrying 1000 tons of more of cargo,...

Re: Cargo Containers - sizes?

I've thought about it for a long time. Don't really remember seeing 'standard' cargo sizes in those 40 years that have stuck probably because sizes and configurations of hold vary so much. . It was introduced as an Idea in the Traveller Adventure, from there occasionally in the DGP products, which ...

Re: Cargo Containers - sizes?

I tend to layout cargo spaces in 6 meter cubes. But, that is for large cargo vessels. Larger than your classic 200 dTon freetrader. While said smaller can and do carry standard containers frequently, I also see them able to carry palletised cargoes as well. I also find containers based off of aircra...
