System building

Postby tytalan » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:31 am

I been checking things out and I just realized that neither mongoose T2 or Marc T5 have advance starsystem generation systems. Does anyone know it mongoose T1 had one. If not does anyone know why

No it didn't. But there could be one coming up.

You might want to have a look at the Traveller 'Mindjammer' - it has chapters to develop and expand on the basic system building and culture (it does cover and deal with low tech).
The desire for a "definitive, ultimate answer" is, in fact, classified by modern psychiatric medicine as a mental illness.

T5 does have system generation rules which I’ve used to detail a few key systems. Not entirely happy with them but they work pretty well.

MgT1e had an advanced system generator in the Scout supplement.

MegaTraveller had an extensive generator through Digest Group Publications' World Builder's Handbook.

Looks like they're updating it in the new Deep Space Exploration Handbook in the "Great Rift Boxed Set." It accounts for super-earths this time, which is a welcome addition.
"Spacers lead a sedentary life. They live at home, and their home is always with them—their starship, and so is their country—the depths of space."
