Traveller Core Rulebook Update 2022

The system is a tribute to the old Traveller system. It is ok but nothing special. Character generation is fun but a little complicated for the modern days.

The great strength of the books are the illustrations and the maps.

The rules however, lack any realistic feel for my taste and are also quite complex and clunky. May main problem is with the vehicles and the space ships. The rules are too gamey for my taste and stretch my suspension of disbilief too much. For example the relation of the damage a light auto cannon deals compared to a tank cannon shows that the authors have not the slightest idea of how these weapons perform in reality.

There are rules systems that are much simpler but feel much more realistic, I would recommend the Free League games. Especially Alien and Twilight 2000. I would prefer those rules to play anything like Traveller every time.
