Default CT Book 2 Ship construction App?

Is there an app to spreadsheet from freelancetraveller.com is defunct and I no longer have it.

Would be cool if there's an app for that.... ;-)

Book 2 is almost simple enough to not even need text. Let me think about THAT for a moment...

I agree. An app would make creating a large amount of ships and saving them a lot easier.

Heck, you can pretty much create a randomized system to create ships. Now that'd be quite interesting.

"You see a very busy spaceport, there are almost two hundred ships orbiting it"

"I scan them all to see which I like the best so I can steal it."

<GM runs app>

Here are the 200 ships you see......

Procedurically-generated LBB2 ships. Now THAT'S a COOL idea!

Yeah, but I have zero coding skills so can never make it happen :-(

Would there plausibly be that many "custom" designs at a given starport?

I have some skill in Python scripting, I've even written a Traveller sector generatot script which is pretty neat, I just need to hone my skills, and maybe I'll do this sooner or later for fun.

I would think so in any moderately large, or larger, starport. Space is big and there are many shipyards, many small ones would build "better" designs to break into the market.

Also, in a border area, especially one with independent planets (or for that matter, Darrian, Swordworld, etc.) Why wouldn't there be a bigger, or better (or worse) variety?

Think of the sheer number of Swordworld "prizes" there must be in certain areas of the Spinward Marches.

Here's what I wrote back in 1995. Despite what I called it, it is not purely Book 2, but it is Classic Traveller.
