Default Deckplans Poll: The Next Generation


Shutdown by Virus (a.k.a., SPAM). We come from the long night again.
Here is the original thread.

Let's redo our approach with a bit more detail.
Feel free to change votes. And vote often. You may vote for multiple types. (Perhaps the players use Detailed Graphics but still have Art for other ships)
Have fun. Don't take it personally. All plans are a sign of art. Free plans are always appreciated.

The new Poll:
We all insist on accurate ship/station statistics but our Deckplans / Battlemaps need to be...
  1. Detailed 3D/2D Quality Graphics (DQ)
    DQ Examples: Magmagmag Traveller plans. Ryan Wolfe (who is on this site from time to time) has his Future Armada series which are not specifically for Traveller. Or the Firefly from the Firefly RPG.
  2. Not Detailed 3D/2D Graphics (NDG)
    NDG Examples: MT (Assignment Vigilante), T20's Merc Cruiser are a step up from the original CT deckplans. CT AHL and Snapshot may be the beginning of that step up.
  3. CT-style Not Detailed Graphics (CNG)
    CNG Examples: Black Book CT deckplan like Safari Ship, Leviathan and Kinunir. FASA's Adventure class.
  4. Art Only no Deckplans (AO)
    AO Examples: Plans that are not to spec or only for Art/Concept: CT Merc Cruiser, T4 Starships or GT Starships' Tigress
  5. Detailed/Non-Detailed Quality Battlemap required (DQ/NDG)
    DQ/NDG Examples: Newer Style Battlemaps like Future Armada series...
  6. CT-style Battlemap required (CNG)
    CNG Examples: FASA Adventure Ship maps
  7. Plain Battlemap board. (PBM)
  8. I do not use Battlemap boards (NoBM)
  9. Virtual Desktop Plans/Maps (VDP)
    VDP Examples: Those gaming online may only use online plans/maps, or working in 3d 2nd life-style environments.
A few things to discuss:
We had 125 votes on the first poll. Comments are appreciated. Keep the first thread or update it. But to carry on the conversation here is a basic list of questions. Feel free to add to it.
  • Provide links or mention your favorite plans (Traveller or any system)
  • Discuss plans you'd like to talk about (good features or problems)
  • Mention those you consider Art use only.
  • Deckplans need to be accurate within 20% or what do you think.
  • Which Era Deckplans do you prefer Artistically, Functionally...
  • If you think age is relevant to your expectations mention your range (>= 40) or (40<) yo. (example, Savage >=40yo)
