Modified ship deck plans

Sat 24 Mar 2018, 23:06

Hello.
I love ship deck plans from the main rulebook, but unfortunately they cover only main variants of the ships.
My group has choosen Scarrab in Passanger ship variant, and I have modified deck plans of level 2 showing second cyro chamber and living quaters instead of cargo hold.
My questions are:
Does any of the suplements (existing or planned) hold additional deck plans?
Would I, by sharing the modified deck plans with other people (without any profit) be violating any license terms?
Regards

Scarrab / Passanger ship config.
My gimp-foo is poor, but I managed to drop Vulcan Canon + Cargo hold for double passenger cabins.

GIMP (freeware graphics manipulation tool) on PC.
I've made screenshots form PDF from main sourcebook, and then I have imported each deck as base for my work. I've copied the base to layer 1 and used magic wand + some manual clicking to delete all the black background. Then I've copied some items to layer 2 (floor and rooms) as top, using transparent layer, taking them from floor 3 to floor 2.

I took around hour for me, but I knew what I want to do. There are plenty of mauals for GIMP usage on the internet, but I guess that first work with Gimp will take you day or two (just to get used to it).

Do you need any specific ship variant?
I'll be running a game next week, so I will spend some time to prepare. I can do another deck plans on the way.

Well not that I can think of right now. I am making a scenario for Coriolis but the ship is not done yet so I cant say much about it but any empty ship plan could always come into good use! :)

Out of curiosity, as I am without my copy of the book for a bit, how much did this variant cost the players?
