A teaser release of sorts.

I've put two deckplans in the Deck Plans Files section of my deckplans website.

The deckplans are for:
</font>
  • a 600 dTon subsidized liner (the Lillianfel)</font>
  • a 1000 dTon Tukera Lines long liner (the Pride of Tripolis)</font>
Both are teaser examples of using standardized 50 dTon deck slices to quickly create "good enough for one adventure" type ships. Both have been submitted as entries for Deckplans Contests

The deckplans are provided in 15mm scale, 144 DPI, PDF format (designed to be printed or viewed on the screen).

The point behind the 50 dTon deck slices isn't to create a pretty, efficient, or completely accurate ship, but to provide a way for a Referee to quickly create a range of ships (100 to 1000+ dTons) using some basic components. The ships aren't meant to be modular in use (unlike a modular cutter), but modular when constructed. The idea of a modular ship could be extended to where modules are designed to be swapped in and out, but I'll probably do a different set of deckplans for those types of ships.

All of the ships using this concept are cylinders with the decks stacked perpendicular to the axis of the ship.

An initial release of the 50 dTon deck slices is coming soon.
