    2300AD: Aerospace Engineers' Handbook - eBook & Pre-Order

    AH replaces HG for 2300AD in regards to starship and space station construction. 2300 has some significantly different tech assumptions compared to base Traveller and goes in to a lot more detail in regards to heat dissipation, sensor signature, reaction drives and power plants amongst other...

    2300AD: Aerospace Engineers' Handbook - eBook & Pre-Order

    Couple of questions. 1. In page 16 it says the Nuclear OMS uses 0.00075% of hull tonnage per burn. In the example for the Kennedy on the next page that burns are equal to 0.01×hull which give vastly different results. And it uses different figures to measure the size of the thruster itself. 2%...

    (2300AD) Check my "ship" design

    So, running through the Aerospace Engineers Book, I'm trying out the rules to build something "simple". An automated messenger drone that a ship can use to send a message back to civilisation with important data, requests for assistance or as a black box" accident record. Step 1 - Hull 10 tons...

    Energy-based / Non-corporeal Beings

    Are there any examples of energy-based, non-corporeal, pure psionic consciousness or other beings of an insubstantial or phased nature? In the mission the PCs in my game or on, they're about to run in to some rogue scientists meddling with things that man is not meant to meddle and who are about...

    Is there a reason why the new update to the poster map is missing some systems in the American Arm (bottom right) and Pentapod Space (Upper left). That said, I only just noticed when comparing the two version that the extra systems in the older version lacked distance measurements on the...

    How useful is the 1st edition sourcebook Tools for Frontier Living? Would it take much work to make it compatible with 2nd edition?

    I may have missed this is the book, but how much does it cost to send a message via mail ship (assuming they exist) across interstellar distances?

    Official 2300AD Comments Thread

    Funny, I though I had the updated PDFs as Book 1 had the Core appendix on the end. It seems I forgot to download the updated map. Which does make the connections, or lack of in some cases, a little clearer.

    This is fantastic, I was thinking about doing something similar with a spreadsheet (assuming I could work out all the lookup stuff) but then I noticed that Book 2 only has the coords for systems with colonies, not outpost only and empty "link systems". But this handles the route-finding aspect...

    How are other people working out travel distances between systems? I'm torn between two options. Option 1 - Meh, good enough With the exception of the three systems linked to Sol on the map, roll 1d6+1 to determine the number of light years. The three distances to the systems linked to Sol on...

    Traveller Release Schedule/New Books

    I'm eagerly looking forward to the Aerospace Engineers Handbook. I want to create a ship for my game but 2300AD ships seem so different from the ones in the corebook and some of the systems/features mentioned in the writeups don't have any information about them in Book 3. And I mean, looking...
