Prospective Posted September 23, 2004 Report Share Posted September 23, 2004 More newbie type questions for us newbie's edification. I read in the rules that the minimum requirements for a ship design were that it has to be 1,000 tons minimum and can't have any more than 24 different components. I didn't see anything further. Aren't there some basics that need to be a part of any design??? My thoughts are that for an absolute minimum ship, you'd need: 1 unit of computers 1 non-jump drive (unless it's an orbital installation) 1 unit of hull 1 unit of fuel (assuming it's not an orbital installation). Of course, the above design wouldn't meet the 1000 ton requirement, but aren't these 4 items REQUIRED for an in-system mobile ship? Not sure why you'd want to but can you theoretically build a ship with only one hull plate? Can you get away with 0 hull plates? Are you required to have computers? I assume yes, but I didn't see that being required. Then there's the other end of the spectrum. What if you want to build a 10,000,000 ton ship (or higher of course). Being constrained by 24 systems max seems difficult to stay within on larger type ships (of course bear in mind that I have 0 experience with SN:ROTE, so I could be off my rocker). Comments?
