Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

With the current edition, it still isn't clear if inertial compensation is localized, or a general field effect generated from the manoeuvre drives.

Re: Altering Ships

Tonnage affected, times modified cost per tonne, times two hundred percent if bulkhead (one hundred twenty percent otherwise), if the crew does the alteration.

Not counting requisite tools and equipment.

Add labour if outside contractor.

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

While it's mentioned in Tee Five, I don't recall any Mongoose publication taking a stance as to where inertial compensation originates from.

Also, if you add an extra sixteen gravities from the High Burn thrusters add on, the crew is still mush.

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

1. High thrust is now subsumed by COmbined Manoeuvre And Rocket compound drives.

2. In the previous edition, reactionary rockets were half the size and half the cost of gravitic motors; actual High Thrusters even more so, though cost of fuel seemed astronomical.

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

Current edition draws a clear line between power output, from apparently any source, to the subsystem that needs it, whether batteries or solar panelling. Solar panelling, however, has some caveats. Connecting the dots indicates that manoeuvre drives are based on manipulation of gravitational fields...
