That'd be amazing, if you don't mind. My email is adamdray@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Didn't realize that (or know that term). Useful information!

However, if using double-duty space, i.e. benches in mess areas, storage cabinets supporting pool and ping-pong tables, and cargo space in landing craft, you can reduce that by a bit, along with using in-deck storage cabinets, using the between-deck space fully.
The Aquila-class has a pretty huge cargo space, actually. It's a three-story cargo bay with fore access (and the whole area doubles as a giant gas scoop that can funnel into the processors). I would assume that the cargo bay starts with a full load of supplies for 2+ years, and empties out slowly. There is far more than 14 Td of space there, so there's still room to bring interesting stuff home from their journeys.

Thanks!
For all those who might be interested, here is the link to the site to get the drawings.

http://www.uscg.mil/History/webcutte...AER_Report.pdf

The drawings for the USS Bramble in current configuration are in the back of the report. I have a large number of photos of the Bramble as well, taken when I was attempting to purchase her.

The bunks in the crew quarters area were equipped with curtains to allow for privacy and sleeping when not on watch.

Also, the information on food storage was taken from US Army logistic manuals.

Cool stuff. Like T2300, my Nova Roma setting is grittier and more near-future than Imperium stuff.

The PDF deck plans are at a poor resolution, so you can't really read the labels. I did a search for deck plans on Google and found a bunch of interesting stuff.

More Traveller ships need a formal wardroom with wardroom policies: officer rank only (possibly officer rank 2+ only), captain / commanding officer not normally permitted, no business or controversial talk, etc.

That is odd. They come through fine for me. I am emailing you my copies. They are in TIFF format, but are quite clear.

Edit Note: I forgot that I went to a different site to download the deck plans with much better resolution. You can find the sheets here:

http://www.loc.gov/pictures/search/?...ble&sp=3&co=hh

It has 3 pages of data, mainly photos, but then 6 sheets of deck plans, you have to download each individual sheet.

Again, my apologies for forgetting where the high quality downloads were.

In USN ships the Wardroom is for Warrant Officers and above...
