Thanks for putting this together all in one place  :thumbsup:

I'm to run an AToW adventure for a local con this Feb. and might use some of these (with attribution of course). 

By the way, have you ever seen any one try their hand a realistic warship art?  For example how do your launch and recover fighters from a flying skyscraper safely while under thrust?  Not sure how the flight decks should be arranged in such a situation.  The internals of even a small warship would make a great AToW sandbox play area.
Hat tips to Slightlylyons who fixed aerotech in one post and to Daryk for organized cool stuff.

You're very welcome!  :thumbsup:

WarShip deckplans are on my list to do but WAY down it.  I want to do a couple more DropShips and a Scout JumpShip before trying that.  That said, Matt Plog does commissions for VERY reasonable rates, and would probably take a swing at it if you asked him.

Well as someone getting back into the game over the past two years (who likes to tinker), I have found your posts incredibly helpful and inspiring.

I don't know about fan designs, but there was a role-playing scenario book that had an experimental ship in the Exodus fleet mis-jump to a time circa the Clan Invasion. Forgot the name, since I left it with a bunch of other such books at a friend's house.  It had full deck-plans for that ship.

You are correct!  It was a Manassas Heavy Cruiser that had the experimental Jump drive to let them go 40 light years at a time.  In their last KF Jump, it took them to their destination system, but they needed 274 years to arrive.

The book Living Legends had the warship layout in the very back, in pages 58-64.

If you want a thread that discussed the Manassas, its jump drive, and a few potential implications, here it is

As far as ASF/Small Craft being launched it's a bad idea in atmo if Velocity is over 2.  This does give quite a bit of leeway to just idle the engines for a turn to launch some ASF/Small Craft.  For all other launch conditions it is done at the end of movement from a rules perspective and thanks to the laws of conservation of momentum it's largely not going to be a big deal for launching if the craft is under thrust.

All recovery though has the little rules caveat of the ASF/Small Craft and the recovering unit must match velocity and heading.  So it's not impossible to do while both units expend thrust but it takes some thought to properly execute.

Knightmare is having to do something to the forums backend that has broken a lot of links.  No eta on when the links, smilies, and a proper dark mode will be back yet.

Yes, that.  Knightmare has told me fixing the problem is on his list, but some way down it.  I'm willing to wait vice manually redoing a bunch of links I eventually won't have to.  All the threads are still there, honest!

I'm interested in your take on:

Rations and Asteroid Survival Kits threads.

Can you link me to them in a PM?

I'm looking to "flesh" my AU, that you've helped me with so far.

Thanks,

I'll update those links to the "new" format so everyone can see them in the first post.  I'm still holding out hope for Knightmare to fix the global problem, though.  It should take me 5-10 minutes.

The Rations link was already updated for some reason (it might have pre-dated "pretty links"), and the Asteroid Survival Kit link now works again.

Yeah, I had to refresh several times, but I got in...

Thanks for the excellent write ups.

I'm assuming standard Rations have a concentration of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes mixed into the protein based vegetarian "meat" product? A drink powder, fortified with more vitamins, minerals and dry electrolytes, that is awful to wash down and dry ass desert carbo clustered cookie cracker that tastes like sawdust, which in hindsight is way the Focht better, both in nutritional and taste value?

Maybe some type of fruit paste that looks like toothpaste in a tube spread?

Did I just quoted the '80s meal, ready eat menu?  :shocked:

All links should be working again after the demise of "pretty links".  I won't be sad if they come back, but I'm not converting again!
