Certainly. Of course your makertech corporations would try to make you buy only their "right" brand of blue, yellow, red and black goo. "Don't be cheap, only buy Ling-Standard Products ready.made XTR goo! Available at every Imperial licensed highport!"dmclean62 said:Yes, the ship would have to have a workshop, and yes, the raw materials, but these raw materials would be easily available at any star port. Plus, they would be cheaper and easier to find than the correct finished parts.
This gets cyberpunk-dystopian fast, with cheap, hacked ressource-goos and knock-off brands for cheap money. I like the idea, but it might be not everybody's cup of tea. There seems to be a faction of Traveller players, who enjoy a more 70s/80s computer hardware style of game.
