Default Beowulf Free Trader, Step 3: Jump Field

Jump Field (p. 317; formulas on p. 335)

After the hull is designed, we then may optionally define the Jump Field (p. 317, table on p. 335). There are three types of Jump Field. This Free Trader has the default field, which imposes no additional cost: a Jump Bubble. And we can move on to installing drives.

Note that the Jump Field is a characteristic of the hull, rather than the Jump Drive: a new Jump Drive may replace an old one, but the Jump Field doesn’t change. With a Jump Field and Jump Drive, we can calculate the minimum safe jump distance, and the chance for misjump if the ship attempts to jump within this distance (p. 335).

Since we’re accepting the default Jump Field, and it has neither volume nor cost nor significant notes, there’s no need to jot it down on our balance sheet.
