As to the grid: wireless data nets, and wireless communications? Does it extend into the harbor/off the coast a bit?

(Your call on GPS - if Reavers destroyed the highport, they might go with land-based radio locators, instead of satellites.)
I think they'd put satellites back up, and there is enough ship traffic to justify it. So yeah, they have sats for comm and GPS.

Also I think TL 8 should have wireless, at least in the metro area and harbor. Might have to buy a satellite hookup to get wireless very far out at sea.

Here is probably a good place for me to paste in some stuff I just wrote in an email to you, but might be of general interest to other players, too:

Subsector chart w UWPs is on my list for tomorrow, or Sunday at the latest. You can actually have a look at system locations on Travellermap, as I haven't moved anything around, but the Pop-Govt-Law-Tech parts of the UWPs will be all wrong. More world descriptions to follow soon in the "Library Data" wiki for our campaign.

Sources of weapons will depend on what TL you are looking for. I'll be doing a subsector map and UWPs for Zhemi subsector (next one to trailing in Daibei) so that y'all can duck back and forth on runs as you like. Eventually I want to have all of the Deep and Daibei both accessible as Library Data; it is backdating the UWPs that takes time.

Air Cushion Vehicles, yeah, definitely available by TL 8, although Devonia probably has to import them as the Pop is too low for much industry. And if they are importing ACVs, might as well buy gravs - except the ACVs would have the advantage that they could at least be maintained w local parts instead of having to import all that as well, as they would for gravs. So, they have ACVs, and they have some gravs, but both are imported and therefore expensive.

Hmm, metro area of 1.5 million, TL 8, but no real industry on planet. If the city was well planned they'd have public transport like trolleys or light rail. Individual transport might be a mix of bicycles, horses, and various imports such as cars, trucks, ACVs, and gravs. Out on the water, locally built boats plus imported ACVs.
Q: What do you get when you vaporize a Duke, a Count, a Marquis, and a Baron?
A: Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, and Radon

Imperial Core Update: In other news, Emperor Strephon Aella Alkhalikoi is... still alive.
