Nubian J-Type Star Skiff - Floor plans anyone?

11 posts in this topic

Hi guys

 

In a game I'm GMing the PC band of ruffians have recently struck gold (figuratively speaking) while loosing their freighter at the same time. They are considering "upgrading" to a (Nubian) J-Type Star Skiff to travel in style, comfort and speed, and to attract a better class of customers.

 

Since I feel that a floor plan is very beneficial to make the ship more than an abstract idea of a metal tub that gets the PCs from A to B I really want to have some floor plans available for them. Besides, something "might" just happen on the ship that requires a map for the PCs.

 

I can find floor plans for the Royal Naboo Starship (see here: http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070704235859/starwars/images/0/0b/Naboo_Royal.png) but that is of no help, obviously.

 

The best I can come up with is this: http://ivyarchenland.wordpress.com/2010/11/08/a-new-vector-royal-aircraft-part-2/

 

Anyone drawn up a floor plan of this beauty, or found a reasonable one on the interwebs?

Are they buying it used? Because I was under the impression all Nubian ships were custom built to order.

 

Meaning the floor plan could almost be whatever they want it to be.

They are buying a brand new one, customized for their convenience. But I would expect some parts of every ship to be the same. The engineering, cockpit, droid area, boarding ramp etc. I fully expect to have to do my own version, but seeing how others have done it, the total interior space etc. would really simplify matters for me!

I'm taking a look at having a J-type Star Skiff in an upcoming game, and I was wondering if anybody has made any progress on a deckplan? IOW, bump.

Am I correct in assuming that the laser turrets come out of the bronze disks above the wings?

By process of elimination, that does seem the most likely location. The best picture I’ve been able to find so far is at http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130212042348/starwars/images/d/df/Naboo_star_skiff_1.png and if you zoom in on that, you’ll see a couple of flaps that appear to fold out (next to the bronze disks), and that might also house the laser cannons. And there are a couple of other places where it looks like flaps might open to expose laser cannons.

But the most likely location does seem to be under the bronze disks.
