The Saracen Saber by boomerangmouth The Saracen Saber by boomerangmouth
My first deckplan commission! This was done for ~BaronSaber of his (heavily) modified YT-1300, The Saracen Saber.

I had a rough plan to work with on this, so the layout was already envisioned - I just made sure that it follows standard design elements featured in the stock YT-1300 to make for a more convincing deckplan. The kind Baron was very supportive all the way through the plan's creation, keying me into exactly what was required and why! I hope he enjoys it as much as I did making it!

How do they get the landspeeder out of the ship? It's bigger than the lift.

If you look carefully the lift actually spans the entire width of the cargo bay. The whole thing has been split into three panels so it didn't just look like a single metal sheet.

(btw; thanks for calling me out on these discrepancies - really helps me to get a better grasp on forgotten basics of ship design!)

From the design I have a hard time believing that is a YT-1300. I know this level of nitpicking cannon is irrelevant and annoying, but this ship bears far mor resemblance to either the 1000 or the 1930 models of the yt series. If it had a longer "neck" leading up to the cockpit it could be a yt-2000

YT-1300s have cockpits left, right, and center, going way back to the 1980s West End Star Wars RPG, and restated in the recent The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual.

Agreed it does look radically different from the stock YT-1300, but the beauty of the ship was that it was so eminently customisable, there's even a slew of pages in the owner's manual (nerdy I know) dedicated to the additional modules! I would disagree that it looked like a 1000 or a 1930 in anything other than the central cockpit and the fact it doesn't have the standard wide bar engine. For one thing the mandibles on the YT-1000 are far stubbier than the 1300. ;D

Just for further clarification, here's a bit from the old WEG Galaxy Guide 6 with the configuration on: echostation57.files.wordpress.…

(And don't get me started on the YT-2000, how it has so much cargo capacity when half the ship's a tube corridor I'll never know!)

Awesome ship. Few ships are quite so versatile as a YT-1300.

You're not wrong there! It's the modular construction that does it xD

The CR90 is quite versatile as well. One of my RP characters uses a heavily-modified Sundered Heart as her ship. She found it adrift with the crew missing back when she was an officer aboard a naval salvaging ship. What became of the crew was never solved. The airlocks were all sealed and nothing was out of place. Basically a space-age version of the Mary Celeste mystery.

The Saber was the ship from my first foray into the world of RPGing and will always have a place in my heart. My character was a pilot and the only Officer in the group and so I was placed in charge. Quite a surprise for me as 13 year old playing with mostly adult and experienced gamers, half of them Active Duty Military, one of them I had knows since I was 3. So it was indeed trial by fire! We were a Special Ops group, acting as smugglers, performing extractions or infiltration, as well as other missions. She was a great ship!

She was mostly a stock YT-1300 (Center Cockpit), with dorsal and ventral quads like the Falcon. The modification you notice in the stern was to add more cargo room was designed of all people by my sister. I thought it was cool that my sister was gaming with us, and she was a good players. However, we found out years after she quit and the game had ended that she was an Imperial spy and had led to the deaths of nearly half the group and almost every PC or NPC that had been killed!!!

The thumbnail of the ship is another commission here: [link]

WHAAAAAAAATTTTT?! And she kept that from you guys for YEARS?! Bloody hell, if someone pulled that shit on me I'd never be able to trust them again! :paranoid: rvmp

Jesus... That is just, like, horrendously evil, your sister must have been trained by Emperor Palpatine himself to so flawlessly pull off such monumental dickery. (no offence)

that speeder looks like it would be hard to get on and off the ship, given it is bigger than the cargo lift.

personally i'd have flipped the layout of the cargo spaces.. put the one without a lift close to the main entry ramp, to make loading it easier.

Ah, you're mistaking some detailing on the lift for the edge of it, the cargo lift spans the entire width of the cargo bay! Perhaps I should make it clearer next time I do something like this...
