"Classic Traveller Plus"?
 
The UGM thread has some mentions of something called "Classic Traveller Plus". I'm intrigued - but google has let me down. Does anyone remember what this was about? I imagine someone's heavily-houseruled CT?

Before T5 was announced Hunter Gordon proposed an updated version of CT which maintained the simplicity of CT but would use the benefit of the lessons learned over the course of several Traveller iterations.

When T5 was announced CT+ was dropped, so a few of us started speculating on how we would do it.

Search CT+, or check the threads I started about it back in 2005 ;)

Note that MgT is pretty close to a lot of the suggestions we came up with...

...or at least, CT, CT+, and MgT form the points of some kind of triangle... I mean, let's face it, when you clean up and expand CT, you're going to end up with something that looks like a cleaned-up and expanded CT.

Except "CT+" won't work as a search term on CotI. :(

Ok I'll post the links then:

They are old threads so there are formatting issues.

A parallel project was Avenger's Classic Traveller; it wasn't cancelled with T5 announcement, but was cancelled around the MGT license deal.

I also had a task system for CT that I called CT+.

ACT was indeed a cleaned-up CT, centering on a DGP/MT-like task system, High Guard-like starship design, generally regularizing and rationalizing the core CT books into three rulebooks. I would suggest that it was a stripped-down MT, except the things which I think made MT distinctive were absent from ACT. MJD did a good job putting it all together.

And not all was in vain. The equipment section of ACT morphed into Mongoose Traveller's "Central Supply Catalogue".

Thanks all for the info, that clears that up. Those threads were an interesting read.

Was it a big book of guns then, too?

The CSC should have started from a basis of MT's Imperial Encyclopedia, instead of a gun show catalog.
