TL9 EMU Suit and its PSD File and Stats

both EMU unit and Crew Suit PSD file. 

TL9 Crew Suit 2200 PSD FILE

  1. Changed the Shadows Layer into an OVERLAY layer. I used the Overlay property on the layer to create the shadow effect that applies to both the BASE COLOR and the STRIPES. you can now change the BASE COLOR without having to recolor the shadows. 
  2. Changed the Highlights Layer into a SOFT LIGHT. Same as the OVERLAY layer, it allows anyone with the PSD to change the BASE COLOR without having to redo the highlights and shadows. 


  1. This is where I experimented with OVERLAY and SOFTLIGHT and got the workflow you see in the PSD file. 
  2. This is where I got the right level of line size.
  3. This is where I relearned a lot of coloring and basics. 
  • Name: Basic ExtraVehicular Mobility Unit TL9 2200 Model.
    • To differentiate it with the Basic EVA Suit TL9 2200 Model. 
  • Derived from: Extravehicular Mobility Unit
  • Manufacturer: Open Source any Fabrication System TL9 2100 models or older can manufacture the Grade+2 Spare Parts. Spare parts are 60metric tons per 1dton (4metric tons per 1 cubic meter). 
    • Assuming Grade+0 Spare parts are 100KCr per 1dTon 20 metric tons of mass (half the density of aluminum).  5Cr per Kg of spare parts for Grade+0. 
    • Assuming Grade are x3 more expensive every level in quality and value (x3, x10, x30, x100 etc...). 
    • Grade+2 Spare parts for the suit is 50Cr per Kg. or 1MCr per dTon. 
    • Grade+3 Spare parts for the Life Support and Tech at 150Cr per Kg. or 3MCr per dTon
    • Grade+4 Spare Parts for Life support and Tech at 500Cr per Kg. or 10MCr per dTon. 
  • Function: Work in Vaccum for Long Periods, even in extreme periods of work where the worker is in the suit for 40-80 hours. The life support section allows the wearer to curl up in Zero Grav and self-comfort. It's been designed to allow for herculean tasks and these tasks tend to be called for. 
    • Life Support:  40 man-hours of heavy exertion 80 man-hours for light. Can be serviced and supplied in a Vacuum. 
      • Powered Life is 40 hours with powered movement. Unlimited with a power tether. 
      • Work. if a human can produce 300-400wats, the suit can produce around 1000-1200 watts of work for its 40 hours of independent power supply. 
    • Pressure Type: Full
    • Operating Pressure: 101 kPa (14.69 psi) or 1 Atmosphere of pressure. 
    • Work In Zero G. Pressurized Work in this suit is considered light load thanks to the exoskeleton dealing with most of the suits own resistance and mass. 
      • Common add ons Thruster and Cabling Attachments.
      • As well as special Welding Rigs that deal with the large about of heat the process generates.  
    • Work In 1G. considered under a load of 12kg Powered and 90kg Unpowered working in a pressurized suit in 1G. 
    • Special Use: Exercise Rig - for long extended periods of time, the suit can be programmed to allow for exercise by giving resistance to various motions. 
  • Operating Life: 
    • Maintenance: 40 hours of use requires 10 mins of servicing. 
    • Work-Life:  10 years or 120 months of use and replacement parts is as though you bought a whole new Suit. 16KCr / 120 months = 135Cr per month of maintenance. Not counting the Life support Consumables at 2Cr per Man Day.
  • Suit Weight: 40 kg; 6KCr (150Cr per Kg; Grade+2 Parts)
    • Life Support Systems weight: 20kg,  10KCr (Grade+3 Parts; 500Cr per KG)
    • Total Weight: 60kg at 16KCr (12KG load when Powered in 1G; in Micro or No gravity the suit is aided by the exoskeleton)
    • Typical Weight: Carries 40kg to 60kg of supplies. from rations, wipes, 

What can you do with the PSD file:

  1. Change the Color. my son messing around with the colors. Select the base color layer and use HUE, BRIGHTNESS, and SATURATION to manipulate the color. 

  2. Redo. I plan to draw Exo Skeleton Attachment. Thrusters and other Variants. A combat version though will be very far in the horizon.
