Default GURPS Lone Star Room Plan - huh?

I got legitimate electronic versions all the GURPS Traveller and JTAS stuff from SJGames, the Grognard Kickstarter, and Bundle Of Holding so I never got the GURPS CD-ROMs from Far Future Enterprises. I though I had everything, but now I notice that the FFE GURPS CD-ROMS have something called "GURPS Lone Star Room Plan."

A web search doesn't turn up much on this.

Anyone know what this is?

Lone Star was a franchise bar described as part of the GT core rules. When the JTAS Online was running there was a chat service (IRC like) which was set in the Lone Star bar as part of the Starport, as a place to gather and have a chat with others. JTAS Online is now gone (but you can get the archives of the articles).

Thanks. Someone elsewhere said this was a floor plan in the GM's screen pack.

Doing text searches, Lone Star is a name for a generic "Starport Meeting Place" in T5, but I am not finding it or any similar terms in any of the GT books.

Yup. It's a pretty generic bar with an open floor area, central bar, and small kitchen. The whole map was printed on a single 17"x22" page. The Cardboard Heroes page that also came with the GM screen included some chairs, tables, and knocked over tables which you could place around the open floor. The bar was is called Brubek's on the map; I'm not sure why it's called the Lone Star Bar on the CD-ROM.

Ah! Brubek's I know, it is in GURPS Starports, p86-87, including a floor plan. Thank you.
