I notice some non-Traveller-standard seats designated with a single letter code on some of the other plans, like B = Boss, on the K'kree ship.

WOW! As a lifelong believer of "it ain't a real ship without deckplans", these are brilliant - and thank you!!!

I'm in love with that Hammer class merchant.

I love all the details that come alive as you look close. Like...I just noticed that the hatches in the staterooms and medbay double as view-ports. I wonder if those are escape hatches with explosive bolts, where the entire view port rockets out of position. Or, does the glass break apart as an iris valve would and reseals after it is closed again.

The design is elegant. Simple yet deceptive. Fuel scoop like a mouth across the aft ventral section. Sensor sticks poking out of the bow like a bug's antenna. It is a very "Traveller" design.

Question: does the required space add up if using Book 2 rules? Can you duplicate this vessel and deckplan using Book 2? There's enough space given to fuel tankage and what not?

15mm of course. There are far more Science Fiction figures in 15mm than there is in any other size. Way more Traveller inspired figures as well.

Though I will say I am a big fan of Cardboard Heroes, which are close stand-ins for 25mm figures down fitting on 3/4 inch bases (20mm or better yet a penny). The good news is they are available as part of the GURPS ships disk from FarFuture. They are part of their Deckplans series.

I made a mistake years ago when I was moving into 15mm in that a majority of my collection is based on 15mm rounds to match the nominal scale of 1/100th which most vehicles are scaled in. Instead the nominal 120 scale the 1/2 inch grid of all the classic Deckplans are printed. But as most things arrive here as digital files a little tweak of the printing parameters and I am good to go.

That wasn't my intention, it's just hard to differentiate the ceiling iris valve symbol from a skylight. But if it works for you, go for it!

Yes, yes, and yes. All my designs are per Book 2 and I try not to fudge. I start with a 3D model of the hull, which is scaled to match the ship's displacement tonnage. I then work backwards to create the deck plans. If the fuel tankage seems light for the Hammer, realize that there is a bunch of fuel stored below the main deck. When working with curved hulls, I tend to store the fuel in the less useful areas.

Question from up-thread: What's the station on the bridge labeled "C"? Computer?

Comment: You should contact Mongoose and see if the need a deckplan swabbie.

Thanks! I've already used a couple of the plans in my current game. They are quite good, useful and I really enjoy all the renderings as well to give more perspective to the actual ship as a character.

I forgot to Say, Thanks those are wonderful.
