Spacemaster complexity is in CGen and ship construction, not in play (where all rolls are 1d100 + Skill Score + difficulty mod, or in combat, 1d100 + Offensive Bonus – target's defensive bonus). XP is by difficulty class of rolls for non combat, by hits and crits done and taken, and cash acquired... Fiddly, but not hard.

TriTac, it's got just as much CGen complexity, and more in play complexity. Formulae, not just tables.
And 3x3" hit locations (8x8cm), and they matter...

Aramis is right. The rules are a mess.

My view of ICE is colored by my first experience with the system. Back around '81 or so, a buddy of mine tried to run D&D with Rolemaster rules. It was a night of chart shuffling.

TriTac has a even worse first session... chart shuffling and calculators.

We also tried FTL:2448, but there was not enough flavor text for a campaign. Not like Fringeworthy. I ran a Fringeworthy campaign game back when I was a teen. Traveller rules, Fringeworthy campaign because yes the Tri-Tac rules were sort of complicated. We did use the body hit location charts because we were morbid though.
It was eerily similar to a certain television show but instead of Goa'uld, Fringeworthy had Mellor. Much ammo was expended

I bought all of Tri-Tac pdfs for Fringeworthy and FTL:2448, cause you never forget your childhood...

Did you ever do any conversions for Traveller? Do you still have them?

Nope. The version of Tri-Tac I had was Bureau13: Stalking the Night Fantastic... however, like Palladium, TriTac is a one-engine house.

No real conversions needed. Just convert the UWP's...

SMC has a prior service system.

Thought maybe you had converted some ships or aliens or something. I converted some ships years ago. Lost them all in various drive crashes. Been so long since I've messed with it that I've forgotten what the aliens were like. Guess I'll have to dig out my books.
