Yes, GT:Far Trader, plus several other rules, using all the sectors in Traveller Map to generate trade data across all of charted space.

They are building or fixing one ship at a time. Technically you only need to be able to fix or build a starship, which includes the jump drive. This requires access to parts and a place to work. A class B port can be equally small, but just lacks the ability / desire to work on Jump Drives.

Well, I have a bit of a different view. TL to me isn't what tech you make there, just what you can support/maintain. A Non-IND almost by definition can't make a broad range of products, more like they can pay for them and have the local infrastructure to repair and use.

My go-to example for this is 19th century Nevada after the various gold and silver mines came in. They were out in the middle of the Wild West, but had luxuries and technology such as it was shipped in that were equivalent or the envy of posh estates and European capitals.

Then, the mines played out and the party was over, leaving glorious relics and possibly some people floating the 'good old days', but eventually economic reality would set in and they would go to being a rural mining town with a glorious past.

So you could still buy and sell like it's TL E, planet is just not going to support it for much longer since the population has dropped so precipitously.

Makers could be ubiquitous from the good ol days, at TL E almost anything is ultrareliable so a small percentage of them could have survived and kept up parts streams and small items.

Ok, ok. I have to agree with you. Now, I only have to make amends with these ideas and my previous thoughts. But you're right, I can see your point and tjoneslo's.
