Unhappy Bugs in software

Greetings !
I have tried three times to design a 1000 D. Ton starship only to get some kind of error message and I am unable to finish the design. The error message makes some kind of comments regarding "logs". I would really like to try again. I hope this helps you in finding any problems that might exist in the program.

Tried to use this to redo the 20-ton launch in the errata (TL 7), and it says that if you use crew couches you have to have a computer.

Hey Don,

Perhaps a poor error message . A small craft must have either a bridge or a computer. The presence of crew couches without a bridge or a computer fires the error. (ref Bk5, pg 34).

I'll change the message to "Crew couches must be accompanied by a computer or a bridge".

Well spotted

Can you let me know the details of the design? PM me if you like. Screen shots are fine, but you may need to email me.

First I have to say thanks for the online shipyard program. It allows more time for the creative process and less number crunching.

I would like to ask, if and when you, update the program if you could include the Solomani fixed weapon mounts from Alien Module 6.

Suggestions for further diversifying the payload options with a Medical Bay & Missile Magazines.

Again Thanks.

BVW

Will do. I'm overwhelmed with RL stuff at the moment, so it may be a couple of weeks or so.

Have you got a canon reference for the medical bay and magazine size/costs? 1979 Bk2 IIRC mentions missile magazines, but I haven't updated my cd rom to get the pdf.

Matt,

Thanks for the reply. I will push more excepts to you and I understand RL commitments. Thanks again for your time.

- BVW

From Alien Module: 6 Solomani - page 42
Fixed Weapons Mounts: Solomani ships may have fixed
weapons mounts (as opposed to turret mounted weapons).
Fixed weapons mounts allow up to two weapons to be attached
per each hardpoint on the ship and do not require fire control
tonnage or a turret. Weapons in fixed weapons mounts are
operated by a gunner on the bridge and are subject to an attacker's
DM - 2 in space combat. A ship is allowed fixed
weapons mounts equal to the model number of the computer
installed on the ship (Model12 computer allows two hardpoints
to have fixed weapons mounts).

Somewhat confused. Here's what I'm trying to achieve: 800 ton Pursuit Destroyer, class DP, needle config, armour 2, J-6 M-6. Comp seleceted mod 7, drives and plant (as per book 2 ed1981 pp22) should be X,X,X; when I check by hitting submit, I get "Fix 1 issue before this design is valid: For this standard 800 ton hull, engineering cannot occupy more than 165 tons".

Whatever combo I use, changing the MJP specs, everything, it keeps giving me that error.

What am I doing wrong?

Try to, instead of a 800 dton hull, put a customized hull and then 800 dton.

Standard 800 dton hulls are described in LBB2 (page 22) as having 165 dton drives section and 635 dton of main section (that's what makes them standard).

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.
