Will do.

BTW, for an alternative take on the Type S, check out Scarecrow's gallery.

BTW2, anyone know where the plans I'm using came from? They're like the standard ones except the lower deck is aft (where it makes more sense) rather than forward.

I understood from Wil that the Bk5 needs 43T of fuel unless you want it to have a cargo capacity of 26T.

20dt for J2 + 3dt for 4wks power.

Another 4wks power would make sense.

But yes, there's lots of space, but that's full of all the sensor gear that...er...CT doesn't mention. A bigger computer could be used, which in turn would need more power (and fuel).

I was going to ask! Do tell!

Yes, I know that. I thought I'd managed to make that clear. Sorry for being unclear. What I was referring to was 23T of fuel +26T of cargo space OR 43T of fuel and 6T of cargo space.

(Mind you, the 3T for 4 weeks of operational fuel is IMO disbelief-suspension-destroyingly silly, but that's what the rules say.)

Not really, but I know what you men.

And changing the specs from the canonical figures anyway. Potato - potahtoe.

Hey, 3dt/month is better than Bk2's 20dt/month!

Any intelligent conversion to HG will change the stats.

Aww, cheers, fella. The trouble with mine is the volumes are a mix of T20 and G:T. I was also never satisfied with the rear part of the upper deck with some sort of vague engineering section wrapped around the staterooms just to fill space. Very weak. Still quite proud of the loading ramp/universal air lock, though

No idea, though I did do that much myself as a quick fix ages ago after a brief look at the side elevation revealed there was no way any kind of cargo hold would go up front. I don't recall ever posting the altered plans but I might have shared them in some pbem and had them leak. Or I can easily see someone else coming to the same conclusion.

EDIT: Now on second thought I'm wondering if... Kitsune... or Peter... (can't recall the sites offhand) might have that up in the deckplans area. Found the sites but nope, neither of them seem to have it.

Not the one I was looking for, but...

I will beg to differ on the assessment of my intelligence (I will not argue questions of my sanity though ).

My intelligent conversion to HG does not* change the stats:



http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Gal...dex.php?n=1293

* well, not significantly, imo, a very little armour and the option for actually defining the electronics by changing the base computer model

Granted, a bit sideways to this discussion, it is the fat wedge deckpans shoehorned into the alternate depiction, the thin wedge, which never (to my knowledge) had deckplans. But it is the way I think such "fixes" should be handled. Minimal impact on original ideas (B2) while adopting newer models (B5).

It's even got Scarecrow's forward landing ramp (loved it so much I nicked it)

I kept meaning to do it up in SketchUp to see if it fit but never got around to it. No guarantee it does. But it is more tonnage accurate for the deckplan areas, not so sure about the fuel, purifier, and armour volume remaining unmapped.
