Default GURPS Traveller Chargen

Hey all;

Completed acquiring every one of FFE's DVDs of the different iterations of Traveller.

Rummaging through my gaming materials, I found I have a copy of GURPS 3rd Ed. and a copy of GURPS Traveller, neither look very thumbed through. I likely decided to stick with my CT/Mega mashup.

Is there a good tutorial about creating characters, am unfamiliar with a point build system as GURPS appears to be.

Yes, GURPS is point buy. GT uses templates. The template is just a mostly prebuilt character, with a listed cost, which you subtract from the base, and tweak with the leftover.
GURPS Core Rules include a decent example of how to build, but only GURPS Lite is on the CD.

Thank you, that gives me a direction to look.

It's... readable, probably relatively functional. But far from the prettiest thing I've seen.

I create a spreadsheet with at least two pages, one is the front end where I enter the information, and the second page is the output with the table information. I copy the second page and paste into a text window and then I eliminate the carrage returns and white spaces.
