Rather than try to make a completely compatable copy, I'm just going to go
for the 'feel' of the setting (Flying ships, fantasy worlds, etc).  Probably
with will look like a mix of 1 part Spelljammer, 1 part Mystara's Flying
Ships (ala Voyage of the Princess Ark), and 2 or more parts what feels right
to me.  (Somewhat finer control over ship size (Using Vehicles, and
Vehicles2 when it comes out.  Just design your ship.), The Air Envelope
being optional (But common on any ships that plan on going into the upper
atmosphere or into space) using either an artifact or spell placed on the
ship as a whole, etc. etc. etc.)
