Requests Guidlines

After getting a rash of preposterous, rude, or downright insane requests, I have decided to put a few guidelines here to help you people avoid both a severe dressing down or elevation to Space Monkeyhood.

 

Firstly let me say that polite requests will never be ignored, and you should expect as full a response as I can muster within a few days of sending your mail, barring my absence on holidays or some such.

 

A:
The request must be plausible. I've had requests through for star destroyers, super star destroyers, even the death star on one occasion. If you can't work out if your request is simply too large by all means ask, but a good rule of thumb is to say I won't do any ship over one hundred meters, and I am unlikely to do so over fifty.

B:
I don't create ships which don't fit into my personal vision of the Star Wars universe. Although I make these plans public, I do so on the basis that I use them in my games; if I made something that was useful to you, but not to me, then I would expect to get paid for it. This guideline is of course somewhat nebulous and I certainly don't have time or inclination to list out what I consider suitable. A simple rule of thumb is that I won't do munchkin ships. If in doubt just ask and I'll let you know.

C:
I create these pieces as and when I get the urge to work on them. Without getting paid I have little motivation to work when I don't feel like it. I also work on whichever project most suits my mood, so any suggestions as to when I might be able to deliver a finished piece is subject very much to the whims and foibles of fate. To put that in perspective were I to charge for the work on the same rate I do as a professional designer each medium sized single deck freighter would cost you around $600
.

D:
I get a request or two every month asking for a ship that really doesn't warrant its own deckplan. Generally this is because the ship is simply too small for such a plan to be of much use. The Mouldy Crow, for example, is more akin to a fighter than a transport, it has a couple of seats, and that's it. There's no need for a deckplan as there's nowhere on the ship to go.

E:
I have been getting a lot of requests for ships from Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: Galaxies. I dislike virtually every Star Wars computer game rather intensely, and have got a little sick of these, so be aware that any request for a ship from a computer game will be declined.

F:
You must be aware that any request sent to me might end up as an entry in the Corps Of Space Monkeys.

With all that in mind please do get in touch,,,
