I figured as we get more expansions and gamers it would be useful to have some sort index to make them easy to locate.

I did have a suggestion on your token pack thread. For simplicity it might be helpful to move all your packs into the first post. People might not realize the Aslan pack is further down the thread.

Is there a reference to the XML/module format?

I am looking to create a Traveller Style "Library Data" that is a reference lookup for the setting for the players.

I want a button to appear on the players right hand side of their UI that pulls up a catagorized notes/story section that is fully available to the players without my needing to share anything with them.

Hi.

I can't help with the button and such, but there is another option. You can create a reference manual module with all of the information you want to put in it and the players can access it anytime they want.

I've not tried it with Traveller but as Traveller is layered on CoreRPG it should work.

The material is already distributed under the creative commons. I have already extracted all the symbols/files as individual svg files. I am now deciding upon how to upload/manipulate the material, including some regular starships such as the standard adventurer class vessels.
The biggest issues I am facing are (1) figuring out if there is a way to easily setup walls and line of sight (2) figuring out if there is an easy way to set up windows/doors.

Hey Everyone,
I am creating a series of modules for MGT2 and I have a couple of questions for the group mind. If this is not a good place to put this question, please direct me to a better thread.
I have been getting all the various Traveller Wiki 3rd Imperium data into a format that can be used as a module for MGT2
So, here are my questions
(1) In the Traveller Universe, there are over 75 documented languages in use. I can create them as skills for inclusion in the game. Should I put them into a single module or as a group of modules (major/minor/imperial/non-imperial etc) and if as a group, how would you separate them out?
(2) I am using the author extension and Including the language history/notes etc as well as the races as a form of Library Data for the Players/Ref to access, again, should I include them all in a single module or as separate modules, same questions as above.
(3) I have created maps for about 10 Sectors and I am generating extended information/notes/etc based upon information I gained from the TravellerMap. I am thinking one module per quadrant (four per sector) in order to keep each module small. Thoughts?
(4) I have been creating standardized 2d Decksplans for use with the VTT. Do people want empty deckplans with icons for beds/consoles/chairs etc or do you prefer a fully detailed interior?

All modules once finished will be shared. Right now it is still the layout/data gathering/testing phases.

1. I prefer a signal language module. Also would like if we could get write using different languages in FG. I tried to add in standard fantasy languages module and renaming the languages but couldn't get it to work load in. Maybe some with more FG experience can get a to work?

2. Would put that in the same module as the languages.

3. I was about to say, a module for ever sector. But maybe that will me to many modules so you probably right. Problem I see is I don't know what the different quadrant are called. Won't it be hard for people to find the right module for their sector/subsector?

4. Do deckplans with standard interiors. And the do a extra module for shipbuilders with empty deckplans and tiles with interior object for creating custom ships.

The languages would show up in the skills list ie Language (!Kee (K’kree)) with full notes, so when you have all the languages loaded, you have an extra 70 or so skills to scroll past when trying to find/drag/drop skills. I personally am putting them all into a single module but wanted to know if that extra thing was too much for the average player.

As for the fonts/languages in the chat - I have tried to get this working myself but it does not seem to want to work.

Every quadrant in a sector has the same names - Alpha, Beta, Gamma & Delta. They are just blocks of 4 Subsectors, easier to see how sub-sectors and polities are related to one another but not so large that it is a pain to scroll around as a large sector image. Author creates a nice easy interface for linking things together.

I made A - Z Story Boards out of Class Traveller and Mongoose Traveller Me2 plus some stuff from old magazines and GURPs. It doesn't have a reference manual, because I couldn't figure out how to get it to work.

I forgot to add the copyright notice to the first storyboard. That is now corrected.

Hi russ143!

It's cool that you've put something like this together and shared it with the community.

We are, however, very strict on these forums in supporting publisher and artist intellectual property. I'm not aware of any Open Gaming License (OGL) or Community Commons/GPL license that would allow this type of material to be publicly distributed. Mongoose did release an OGL with SRD data for Traveller in 2008, but that doesn't cover data such as this. So, unless you have permission from the copyright owner to post this, or you can direct me to a license that allows you to do so, we're going to have to take it down. Sorry.

I made a module for fantasy grounds and I put the traveller aid society logo on the cover and in the first story board I put the copy right statement.

I contains the A - Z entries from classic traveller library data books. I put in the mongoose Me2 corporations, mercenary groups, port side companies, some entries from encounters (like church of the mind) and some entries from challenger magazine like the Church of the mind.

It doesn't contain art and I didn't charge money for it, I just posted it on the forum, but the forum moderator wasn't sure what side of the law it's on and I'm not either, so I thought I'd email you to see what the right thing to do is.

This is the email I sent to mongoose. We will see what they say and what's the best way to sort this out. (The second Church is supposed to be the Church of the Chosen Ones - a Vargr Church)

Well all text needs references to where it comes from (just like when you do your degree etc). Any text found on the internet even if someone else has shared it doesn't mean it's not copyright, and that's a very sticky point, it's why the moderator said that you need to add a comment providing proof it's free information (and being on a Wiki doesn't mean that) or you have copyright approval (which is what I had to do to convert Mongoose Traveller).

But it's a nice little personal mod so feel free to use it yourself in your games. If at any point you can prove the above then it should be cool to use.

Also as I keep saying, I'm only allowed to add content produced by Mongoose so community things are ace.

MBM

You need to run an intro session for Matt and some of their writers to familiarize them with FG, its capabilities and how things work. Get them hooked and coming back for more then you can be the official VTT Referee for Mongoose Publishing as well as official VTT developer. :)

I don't want to monetize the module so going through it to establish where all the points come from is probably too excessive for my taste or uses.

I would suggest teaching the mongoose staff how traveller is played on Fantasy Grounds. On line play is the future of role playing gaming because - it's more easily accessed by far flung people, it's far more interactive, and it's easier to focus on play as opposed to obscure mechanics.

I would like to see Traveller be part of that future as it gets bigger. Not as something old up dated, but a treasure for all time; because its depth of content.

hay anyone built a .json importer so we can pull data from Traveller Worlds (http://members.ozemail.com.au/~jonoreita/TravellerWorlds/) directly into FGU and MbM's 1.2.1 Systems format?

Right now i am building out the systems in our PoD campaign and love the detail that Traveller Worlds provides + the nice system & world maps it generates however i have to past the images and data into the Systems entries manually.

A .json importer that puts the data in the right place would be very helpful.

Note: the data from Traveller Worlds does not seem to overlap with the current data stores in the System records in 1.2.1 which focus on the high level info (main planet UWP info primarily + some setting lore).

Hi Russ143,

All you need to do is to link those tables, not copy them, ie drag them into your entry, so if you export that it will export the link, meaning that the person using the module will have the table (assuming they have the Core Rulebook/Players Reference - depends which, depends on what you dragged from originally).

Hi Chap,

I don't have the time myself, though it's very detailed that JSON isn't it.

I wish you well trying to get this done, I could write a convertor from JSON to an FG Module - just don't have the time right at the moment, feeling drained after so much focus on the upcoming CoreRPG work. Come chat with me in a couple of weeks.

Download the code for the system/worlds generator that I wrote, in there you have the info on how to build an FG module, you'll also see the 'field names' for the various data, all you need to do is change the source of the data.

That's what I would do, I'm still working (only now and again) on a front-end for my app, and I have plans to add more and more apps.
