Citizens is a complete implementation of the character generation rules for Traveller5™.
There's a bug in TAS Form 2 if you assign a noble rank to a character it can be changed but not removed entirely. Hopefully I'll get around to fixing this sometime. As a workaround just delete the character and start over.
Unfortunately, due to changes in the API at Travellermap, the graphical features of SectorMaker are no longer working. I don't have plans right now to correct this but might in the future.
VehicleMaker uses the design sequence in the Traveller5 Core Rules v5.09 to allow you to create and save armor designs.
ArmorMaker uses the design sequence in the Traveller5 Core Rules v5.09 to allow you to create and save armor designs.
My 2nd Traveller5 app and my 2nd iOS app is now waiting for review. Should be in the store within the week.
Shockingly, my first iOS app has been approved without any problems by Apple! I can't find it yet by searching the App Store on my iOS devices but here's a direct link.
For the last few months I've been working on a new app which turns out to be my first foray into iOS and the App Store. It's been an interesting exercise compared to programming for the Mac and eschewing the Mac App Store. Luckily, I could do almost everything in Xojo and only needed Xcode for access to the iOS simulator and as an interface to my Apple Developer account.
My app has now been submitted to Apple for review, so it's getting close to release. For more info, see TAS Form 2.
I recently got an email asking "is there a third party program or site that can generate xml for a sec file that can then be used for an nsec file in the sector maker?"
Here's my answer:
Currently there's no feature to import data into SectorMaker. The .nsec files that it creates are in a proprietary format.
I'll add your suggestion to my list of things to do for the next version.
Joshua Bell has a nice page on the format I currently use for export:
He also has a nice page on the possible formats I could use for importing data:
On that page the T5 formats are nice because they include the extended data like Importance, Economic Extension, etc. So I wouldn't have to randomly generate this data on import. For the legacy formats I would have to randomly generate the extended data.
If you search Traveller Map for a sector and click on the data link at the lower left, you get a text file of T5 data. So this is a good candidate for the kind of file I could import.
Let me know of any sources of data you know about that would good candidates for import and I will look at them.
So I'll be considering adding this functionality as well as other things in the next version.
The Traveller5 star sector mapping application is now available for download. Get it here and go forth and build your empire!
