Kintaro 
Racing Yacht

The third chapter of the 0 hr Armada Codex presents the Kintaro (“Golden Boy”) class vessels: built-to-order starships for the wealthiest of clientele. Originally designed as a hunter-killer for the military but ultimately employed as police interceptors and high-end racing yachts, these sleek ships are built for speed. For the private market, the utilitarian military interior has been remodeled with luxury accommodations and components have been upgraded with cutting edge technology. No expense is spared, making a Kintar -class yacht a status symbol as well as a top tier racing machine.

This issue also includes the Tachikaze-class police interceptor. Developed in parallel, it uses the same hull design and general layout as Kintaro but lacks the luxury décor and upgrades. It has an improved sensor suite instead of a swimming pool and detention cells rather than servants quarters, as well a barracks for half a dozen marines instead of a couple pampered guests. Both types of ship, as well as their support vessels (the Masakari jetbike and a law enforcement version of the Series-10 Comet shuttle) are fully detailed and illustrated in this chapter of the Codex.

The Kintaro package contains four highly detailed, layered PDF files:

  • Main Book
    • 24 page PDF file detailing the ships, interior areas, and carried vehicles.
    • Contains several 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
    • Includes system independent statistics designed for easy adaption to your game of choice.
    • Background, art, and text are on different layers for custom display and printing.
  • Map Pages
    • 25 page PDF file containing complete interior maps and instructions for assembly.
    • Miniature-scale maps for tactical combat with an optional 1 inch = 5 ft grid.
    • Divided into pages for easy printing in full color or printer-friendly black and white.
    • Selectable layers include: grid, black & white version, optional objects, and more.
    • All Armada Codex issues now also include giant JPEG versions of the uncut map images.
  • 2 Uncut Map Images
    • Two single page PDF files containing giant 24 x 40 inch images of the complete deckplans.
    • Both the Kintaro yacht and Tachikaze interceptor are included.
    • Select either a light or dark background (for printing or projection/display).
    • Includes layers for grid, black & white version, optional objects, and background choice.

 

Sample document and art are available at 0-hr.com

Both Kintaro and Tachikaze ships are 195 feet long. The former, with its enhance artificial intelligence suite, can be operated by a single person but has room for five additional guests and four servants or crew. The police interceptor carries a standard crew of five plus half a dozen optional marines. It has room for four prisoners (or ten if the barracks space is repurposed for prisoner transport).

As with all issues of the Codex, this product is designed to give you ready-made ships to plug into your setting and rules of choice - lending depth and detail to your campaign. The goal is to provide a complete package, but one that can be easily broken into its constituent parts as needed. When it’s time to play, zero hour is ready!

Note: A PDF reader capable of displaying layers is required in order to fully use these documents. The Adobe Reader is a good, free, option.

Simply put, the best if not one of the best, deck plans and source material for starships that can be integrated in any game system. Outstanding products. Interested customers should also check out the Future Armada line. You can use these maps for bo [...]

Another quality product from Zero hour. This ship is a smaller, lighter vessel that some of the others, and come in a gorgeous luxury version, and more streamlined police model, that fit in perfectly to the Serenity setting, especially given the [...]

I've always loved 0 Hour products and this is no exception. Even better, this is something I've been wanting for a long time. A small ship that can work like a luxury yacht, a mobile base for a high ranking ambassador or naval officer, or any of the [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
