Traveller DeckPlans. The Dean Files. Index of /archive/deckplans. Magash Project 2. The venerable old Mercenary Cruiser of Traveller is the Broadsword. Featured in the Classic Adventure 7, the Broadsword is described as an USL vessel (even though the adventure requires that the ship land on Garda-Vilis.) GURPS Traveller specs for the Broadsword are given in GT and deckplans are in GT:Star Mercs. Unfortunately the deckplans, (like many of the deckplans that have been converted to GT,) do not conform to the size guidelines in GT, i.e. six 1 yard squares or four 1 yard hexes per dton. Even more, the volume encompassed by the Broadsword deckplans is way more than 800 dtons. I determined to upgrade the Broadsword to make it a more effective mercenary support craft. The Problem The problem with the Broadsword design is that it is a TL10 design without many bells and whistles.

By using TL12 modules, I kept the 3G acceleration while also maintaining Jump-3 and still managed to significantly increase crew facilities. Bunkrooms: Why Kalashnikov? Why Contrgrav (CG)?

A while ago we asked Cosmographer 3 users which additional starships they wanted to see done in CC3.

Here are the three most popular choices: The Marava Class Far Trader is a common sight on the trade lanes of the Third Imperium. Download the Marava Class deckplan (fcw, pdf, png and jpg formats). The Zhdits Class is a small destroyer class designed for escort duty. Download the Zhdits Class deckplan (fcw, pdf, png and jpg formats). The Lucifer Class is designed for a similar role as the Zhdits class, only for the Imperial fleet. Download the Lucifer Class deckplan (fcw, pdf, png and jpg formats). The Menu. Deckplans. Technically, these plans fall into two categories.


The earlier ones were drawn in another application and converted to CC2. Everything in the converted plans has ended up on one layer of the CAD drawing, which makes it impossible to do clever things like hide all the cabin fittings before printing and so on. Also some of the labels have come out a bit bigger than they should; normally these aren't a problem but if they are, mail me and I'll amend the problem plan and repost it. One other thing; the colours have come out a litte weird. To start with, the converted plans will appear white-on-black in CC when you load 'em - don't panic, they won't print like that.

Later versions are drawn straight into CC and are properly layered so you can display any or all of: The bulkheads and walls Hatches Furniture, fittings and details Labels and text Deckplan 1.5m grid Plus the colours mean something (I hope!)

Gilgamesh Shipyards - Traveller Downport

From the heart of the Imperium to the Spinward fringe states, Gilgamesh Shipyard starships are plying the space lanes, bearers of good will and economic benefit for all! Here are our most popular models: The Enkidu-class Subsidized Liner This 600 dton liner is the mainstay of many trade routes. It comes in several packages, ranging from the basic cargo freighter, to an armed merchant ship, to a highly specialized exploratory craft.

The Ninsun-class Trader This 200 dton trader is another fine example of Gilgamesh Shipyards' design flexibility. Chances are you have seen this immensely popular merchant's starship in every port.

One of the big differences between running a fantasy campaign and a science fiction campaign is that when playing SF, I find myself constantly looking for starship deckplans.

With a fantasy campaign, many of the maps revolved around buildings, dungeons or overland adventures, and those sorts of maps were easy to knock out over lunch. Failing that, I had plenty of maps from 20+ years of Dungeons & Dragons that I could fall back on. With my Star Wars campaign though, the adventures are split between world-based exploration and starship- or space station-based combat. Starship based adventures represent perhaps 1/8 to 1/4 of the encounters I run, but when I do run them I often find myself scrambling for deckplans.
