Help me and a friend. please

Postby JMISBEST » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:04 pm

A friend asked me to design A 1,300 ton Drinaxian Dragon Class Escort whose weapons, armour, other armaments' and other defenses are very heavy for their size that his characters will find The Blueprints for in The Space-Station from Adventure 5 and which if all goes to plan would have been their Flagship for at least 2 or 3 in-game years

But I've got several ill but guaranteed to live family members, who between them will take definitely take at least 8 months and more likely at least 1 year to fully recover that I have to help care for, I haven't the time to do both and naturally family must come first. Can you help both me and him?

Doesn't matter now cos only 4 minutes back I got a call that it wasn't my mum and dad that are ill. Rather the hospital got their test results mixed up with another couple who where born in the same years as my mum and dad, have the exact same 1st names and have A very similiar surname. Sorry but its the hospitals fault not mine. Apologies given

Thanks guys

Now that I know it was a false alarm I've decided to take the design for The 1,200 ton version of The 800 Ton Mercenary Cruiser I made a few years back then add another 25% of The 800 Ton Mercenary Cruiser. I'll see if I can get time to post it. Are you interested?

Here's my conversion of The 800 ton Mercenary Cruiser into A 1,600 ton Drinaxian Class Dragoon Escort on A Budget of Cr 784,230,967

Initial cost of Cr 599,389,200

Swap 2 55 ton docking bays for 2 50 ton Bay weapons and A 10 ton medical room, adds +Cr 110,000,000 to cost, +50% Armour to 6 tons of Crystaliron Armour, -60 tons of cargo space and +Cr 50 million cost, give the 6 triple turrets 6 Missile Racks, 6 Pulse Lasers and 6 Sandcasters, swaps the 13 double and 3 single Staterooms hold the crew then swaps the 34 other staterooms for A 68 ton Barracks holding 34 men for +Cr 2 million as well as 12 tons of ammo of both types -Cr 14,150,000 and all using advanced tech to make things smaller

Its has 50 tons of Cargo. Its 16 staterooms hold a crew of 16 Gunners, 6 Engineers, 3 Medics and 1 Navigator in double staterooms and 1 1st officer, 1 Pilot and Captain in single Staterooms as regular crew and 23 Marines in the form of 30 regulars, 3 Sergeants and 1 lieutenant

All in all that that gives a cost Cr 775,539,200
