Reflection Maps
The trouble one has to go to to generate reasonablty accurate reflection maps for shield generators...

GN TEL Gamma SHT SL
The Telgorn Gamma class assault transport's common bilge deck layout. This area is quite a bit shorter than standard decks, but is accessible.

Yes, it is intentionally shorter than the canon version. The reason, well, the reason would take quite a long time to explain fully, but is related to the standard squad size for imperial troops being eight, thus making a platoon of thirty two rather than forty, and the nature of operating units specifically relating to C3 issues.

If the Gammy were retrofitted for the spacetrooper, then forty slots could make sense. IMHO, though, the level of specific engineering makes it very likely this version was the first version and thus would have been to house a platoon, not a platoon plus an extraneous attached squad.

Also, I rather think the original illustration was for something else, as the size of the main canopy, the VAST canopy, the GIGANTOMONIC, the TITANOIDOBULBAJINKINGLY GODZOOKEROUS canopy, was probably intended to indicate a ship about the size of a Winnebago. My guess, and guess it be, no more no less, is that the Gamma was originally maybe something like a arsenal ship, but MOST likely, was intended to house normal stormtroopers, and was legend-adjusted so the doors would fit the zero-g troopers, and they basically ignored the now CARCHAXPANSATORIALICIOUS front end because, well, that's just the way the cookiee crumbled at WEG.

GN-SFS Gamma E XWP
The Telgorn Gamma class assault transport.

This one in non-standard Imperial colour scheme what was used in, IIRC, a computering game or two, of some kind.

Hey, i'm new to your site, so i gotta ask, do you do comissions for maps or anything like that?

Short answer - No.

Long answer - Yes, but, I'm working in 100ppm these days (Roughly eight times the level of detail) and a given work is dozens of hours work. Even a fairly small ship would represent several hundred quid worth of my time. So, unless you're amazingly well off, I'd be out of your price range. I'm also not concentrating on ship designs much these days, so a delivery time would be measured in months.

Wasn't sure if you were still around. Nice to see you still active. Your deckplans are amazing, and have been a great help to the Star Wars forum RP I've been a part of for some years now.

Kinda working on something that might be interesting.

Almost finished stage 1.

Don't want to say more than the teaser already on DA because it might never happen...
