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 ...

Re: HG 2e Crew questions

There's that, and in MongoTraveller, demonstrated by the complete virtualization of the bridge. In my case with the Confederation Navy, it's trying to find an economic model to retain the bridge and it's manned complement.

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Let's take the three megabux passenger module as basis. 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...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

A good yardstick is the default cost per tonne.

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.

On the physical level, the aircraft are lighter if they don't need to accommodate for human crews, and more acrobatic.

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

It's a mess. However, hull skin is so thin that it's non existent, so you could presume that modules have the same ruggedness in regard to environmental factors, let alone combat damage. In theory, they are not supposed to be armoured; in practice, armour should be permitted, but it has no effect wh...

Re: How many sand canisters can a firmpoint hold?

1. Logic says it's a third reduction for the firmpointed variant. 2. However, for firmpointed singled turrets, common sense says that there is extra space not taken up by the other potential two weapon systems, so in theory if the rules require a tonne space allocation, than you can take up that sla...
