Snow Raven Floating Enclave (Movable Structure)
« on: 08 July 2011, 14:23:36 »
Created for my AU finally with fluff.  Took a while to create.

Snow Raven Floating Enclave Stage One

Layout (Hexes)

1 - 2 - 3
4 - 5 - 6
7 - 8 - 9

Whole structure:      VTOL MP2   CF:   85   Levels:      9
Crew       206      Officers      21

Overview
   In 3080 Khan Lynn McKenna ordered her engineers to produce a safe habitat for Snow Raven Civilians living in the Outworlds Alliance.  In 3082 the first structure, the Lum Habitat, came online.

Capabilities
   As a floating, airborne, structure the enclave is unarmored and can only travel around 22kph.  Each part of the structure is nine levels high.  Over two hundred officers and crew keep the structure and its facilities operational these are mostly low born Snow Raven freeborn and failed warrior candidates.  The central section is approximately ninety meters across by ninety in length.  It houses enough space for four hundred-and-fifty civilians, a Hyper Pulse Generator, a VTOL landing pad, hanger space for ten VTOLs, a fully kit out MASH facility and eight hundred-and-ninety tons of cargo.

Deployment
   The Lum Habitat is deployed on Alpheratz the Outworlds Alliance Capital.  Within a month the crew of the structure had converted around an eighth of the available cargo space over to a freeborn school while on the upper levels a fenced area for open air sports was also created.

Snow Raven Floating Enclave Stage Two, Three, Four, Five

Layout (Hexes)

1 - 2
3 - 4
5 - 6
7 - 8

Whole structure:      VTOL MP2   CF:   80   Levels:      8
Crew       127      Officers      13

Overview
   When Lynn McKenna ordered the Snow Ravens to create a new habitat for her lower castes living in the Outworlds Alliance the initial Enclave was launched however it was not intended to fly alone instead the Snow Ravens had built four additional structures to connect onto the main structure adding to their population and to the structures capabilities.

Capabilities
   Smaller than the initial structure the auxiliary or “wings” of the floating enclave are capable of keeping up with the main structure in speed although they are smaller only sixty meters wide per one hundred-and-twenty meters long each part is eight levels deep.
   Within the structure there is a Helipad and hanger space for ten VTOLs, quarters for four hundred-and-twenty 2nd class quarters, a MASH facility and five hundred-and-forty-six tons of cargo space.

Deployment
   For each of the main “base plate” enclave four of these are also launched creating a four winged facility.  The first of these were launched in 3082 the last in 3084 creating a single completed habitat.  Much like the main habitat the crew and passengers of this facility converted almost a quarter of the cargo space over to a school and opened up much of the top area of the structure for an open air sports facility giving families room to expand and live.

Hex 1
Power + Engine (43 tons), Helipad (500 tons), Searchlight (0.5 tons, upwards), 10 Aerial Lifeboats (70 tons), 26.5 tons Cargo

Hex 4

Whoa...  I never thought I would see something like this.  Not since an ancient Popular Science or Mechanics issue... think I still have it in storage...   very nice and would love to use it in a RPG session for sure.  Will definitely make for a fantastic backdrop.
"Any sufficiently rigorously defined magic is indistinguishable from technology."  - Larry Niven... far too appropriate at times here.

...but sometimes making sure you turn their ace into red paste is more important than friends.

Do not offend the chair leg of truth.  It is wise and terrible.

The GM is only right for as long as the facts back him up.

Glad you like it was trying to draw it at some point but I can't draw to save myself

Internally it generally looks like the inside of a WarShip however the crews and inhabitants try to make it look better.

The Quarters are based on single occupancy quarters however obviously you'd modify it to accommodate families etc

also the wings can operate independently however they are all connected most of the time

Fascinating.  I have something like this in my AU, for a group with a DC heritage.  Given the SR's aerospace trends, have you considered a space station?  Even a moonbase?

It was always a Snow Raven creation I couldn't think of it another way to be honest

A moon base would be almost like a planetary one

A spacestation possible but I like this one it's something different

Good stuff, DC.

I can definitely see myself working this into my campaigns eventually.

...You know, I wonder if something like this would work for a station like the ammo depot in the first episode of BSG (the remake).  Floating in the upper atmosphere of a gas giant, concealed by the planet's magnetic field and clouds.

I think I 'floated' something like this by Cray, but he shot it down.   :)  If I remember right he said an asteroid base might be easier.

 ??? :o

I never thought of that Red Pins, good point...

Problem with this in a Gas Giant would be storms/gravity pull.  This is designed to operate in standard 1G conditions - I'm sure you could probably modify the lift of it somehow to operate in higher G enviroments though.

Storms on the otherhand would be a problem.  It's an air platform meaning CF limits and no armoured chassis requirements.

But still I'd think it would be possible.  I may mod it for a more cargo/depot type arrangement or buld different "wing" pods.  If there's any interest, or if I get bored.

On a side note because it's standard tech throughout it doesn't have to specifically be a Clan structure
