Where can I find stats for a Primitive KF Drive
« on: 18 August 2021, 16:34:47 »
Like the Title says,  I'm wondering where I can find information about early Warships/Jumpships?

I recall one of the Merc products had a chart about 20-25% more weight for Primitive construction items.

I also read about the Aquilla class on Sarna from one of the XTRO:Primitives.

I'm wondering if we have any other "Proto-Ships" w/ stats & where I can find the rules for creating them?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time :)

Primitive JumpShip construction rules start on page 128 of Interstellar Operations.  They're pretty interesting, and if you don't follow Cannonshop's fiction, I recommend it as an example application of those rules.  Enjoy!  :)

Liam's Ghost created a fan-made PDF Technical Readout to Pre-Dreadnought combat Jumpships / primitive jumpships. Most of the ships featured were primitive types with maybe couple exceptions.

It has brief writeups for each design and record sheets covering each design and their major variants up to the point where the ships themselves go out of service.

(note to self, actually write the next section of this book)
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

I have the book downloadable on the Fanon Wiki, thus making it easier find. I'll make sure I update Big Book of Primitive Jumpships when it's gets new section.

I still think you need to add a page with the jump-range of each ship because outside the ones you described in the previous thread, it isn't obvious.

Yes I do! It'll be in the next version.
