Quick update on the Voshtar.
Mostly happy with the Diplomatic Deck plans at this point, though I'm still pondering maybe tinkering with both the number and placement of the escape pods. But, here's a graphic and some notes in the meantime.
Bow < > Aft (grid is standard 1.5m x 1.5m, assume 3m deck height with actual ceiling height of 2.5m)
Forward we have a large lounge / viewing area with a nice view over the bow of the ship. The "Star Lounge" also includes the 5 dT of biosphere (10dT total for the space) giving is a nice bit of greenery to go with the view.
Just behind the Star Lounge we have the main luxury cabin and four high class cabins. Each cabin has its own fresher, closet space and room for a queen sized bed (high class) and king sized bed (luxury).
The central room is the main hall for dining and so forth. There is a small fresher just off this for washing up before meals, etc.
Just above the main hall is a diplomatic conference room and the library space. Below the main hall, separated by armored glass panels is the training space which includes the armory. This leaves the collection of high end battle dress, pistols, swords, etc. that make up the showy armory on full display while keeping them secured. The training space can function as a small shooting range (for pistols) but is mainly configured for dueling practice.
Just aft of the main hall is the private galley for the noble passengers which includes food lockers and storage. Opposite the galley is a spa which includes a large hot tub, sauna and massage tables.
Further aft is the lift connecting this deck to the Main deck below. Four regular staterooms for personal staff. In between is the docking bay for the 30 dT launch. On either side are the access corridors for the docking bay and the 10 escape capsules.
Assume a 3m deck height and a 2.5m ceiling height in most areas (except the star lounge which has a shallow dome ceiling... I think, I'm tinkering with the idea). If I've done my math right, including all corridors the deck actually comes to 108 dT of space (ship stats allowed 109 dT + 33 dT docking bay), not counting the docking bay and some area either side of the lift which is "docking equipment" for the launch (clamps, supply lines so it can be refueled, and other connections). But I figure the extra 1 dT not shown would be taken up by the slight dome space for the Star Lounge. The 0.5m I shaved off the ceiling height I figured would be used for mechanicals, that is air ducts, conduits, and other equipment and would also allow me some "fudging" on the exterior hull shaping for some areas I want to have some sloping to blend it in with the rest of the ship. Doing my best to stick as close to the actual tonnage as accurately as I can.
This isn't the final draft obviously, I'll need to clean it up a bit, include doors, portals, and furnishings. Plus I'm working on a 3D model of it as well which will much more clearly illustrate what it really looks like. I'm also thinking of adjusting the cost as per the 1e Dilletante book for high end furnishings, say an extra 1,000 Cr per m^2 just to really blow out the decor.
On the 30 dT launch, the more I tinker with the deck plans the more I'm coming to hate the cylindrical launch design that has been pretty much standard in Traveller for as far back as I can remember. It is seeming increasingly impractical and wastes space and makes designing deck plans more difficult. I may scrap the cylinder and go with more of a boxy shape (ala Star Trek shuttle craft) instead, haven't decided yet.
So that's where I'm at. Still working on the Main deck, its quite a bit larger and more complex since it includes the Crew Section, Science Section, Medical Section and Bridge.
