Starship Geomorphs 2.0

The Starship Geomorphs book has been revised and expanded and is now available for free download.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD STARSHIP GEOMORPHS 2.0.

The biggest change is the addition of two new types of geomorphs, Ends and Aerofins, which will help make your geomorphs layouts have a more streamlined, sci fi aesthetic.

The new book features...
   Over 50 new pages, fully bookmarked and hyperlinked!
   Over 80 new geomorphs and geomorph accessories!
   Over 1 new illustrations!
   Very slightly modified cover!
   Same low price!
... and who knows how many little anal-retentive tweaks! For the meticulously curious, my marked up copy of version 1.1 changes can be found  >>[HERE]<<.

I will be working with Marc Miller to produce a Print On Demand version. It is my hope that over the next couple weeks the Traveller community will review this version for spelling, grammatical, and graphic errors and give me feedback so that any corrections can be made before before the print version becomes available.

Coincidentally, the original geomorphs blog entry from October 2018 just passed 20,000 page views last week. I have no idea how many actual downloads that might be, but I'm delighted the community has shown enthusiasm for this work. Stay safe and Happy Travelling!

  2. Hi, love your work, enjoyed 1.1!!!!

    Could you please make a version available with no grid?

    I use hexes on Roll20, and if the squares are pre-printed, I have to Photoshop out the grid by hand.

    Keep up the awesome work! We all appreciate it!

    1. I tried creating them with layers that could be turned on or off and included a hex grid, but for some reason it would screw up the fonts. It takes me about 12-14 hours to reprint the set, so I'm afraid you'll have to deal with the grid on your own.

  3. We love your efforts... Could there possibly be anything more that could come out of this refined oil pipeline of goodness?

  4. Thank you, I love it!

    Typo: Page 184 "Workpods" "short sleeve" or "shirt sleeve"?

    (Accidentally posted this first on the old post.)

    1. I appreciate the feedback. I think you are right. I just did a quick search on the Traveller Wiki and found both shirt-sleeve and short-sleeve, but shirt-sleeve seemed to be used more often and actually has a Wikipedia entry. Thanks!

  6. Thank you so much for this invaluable resource. As a 12 year old beginning GM, I would've promised my first born for it or your weight in Lanthanum. Holding my breath for volume 2...

  7. great stuff as always. I appreciate your efforts and will now spend time I am supposed to be working looking over the new stuff (a throne room! how can I use that...mind goes off in a dozen directions)

    thanks!

  8. Very cool and it is an improvement over the old T4 Naval Architects Manual since it is actually a modular element rather than just a floor plan snippet. Also the addition of SketchUp renders of interiors is a nice bonus. Always refreshing to see people contribute so much to the hobby out of their free time.

  9. awesome work!

    is possible take vectors from pdf?

    1. You can but it depends on the software and there's no promise of quality. For example, I can convert a PDF into an AutoCAD file, but the layers, linetypes, and arcs are often lost.

  10. Super cool! I was thrilled to see the Alien Habitat megamorph; I mentioned hoping for something like Cetacean Ops way back when and I was hoping to see something like this. I LOVE the idea of an interface, and the kind of "airlock" to go visit inside. This whole new edition looks amazing!

    1. Yep. You can stand up and take a bow for that one! Your comment was the inspiration. I confirmed Trek's Cetacean Ops but couldn't find much about it. I originally was going to keep it water based for Schalli, uplifted dolphins, etc. but decided to make it more inclusive - to any sophont species that need a special environment or just wanted a special place to call their own. Thanks again!

  11. An incredible resource - thank you so much for sharing.

  12. I think I'm going to add this to my "best OSR" tables - the utility of having a quick made starship plan can't be overstated :)
