Birds of Prey Complete Bundle

Birds of Prey Complete Bundle

Watermarked PDF

Birds of Prey is a revolutionary jet combat game simulating flight with unprecedented precision and engrossing play. Flight mechanics allow freedom in three dimensions without requiring special maneuver rules. Physics-based systems model aircraft performance differences correctly and simply through the use of only two elegant playaids; graphical computers known as nomograms. Missiles fly out towards their targets without player intervention, using proper kinematics from launch and flowing seamlessly into the underlying flight engine.
Birds of Prey - Air Combat in the Jet Age is the main game box for the Birds of Prey game system with a lavishly illustrated tutorial to guide you through learning the game solo and the concise rulebook is designed as a reference for rules questions only. The play aids are built to keep the rulebook in the box during play. Laminated play aids, tilt blocks and box miniatures hide complex systems under easy to use mechanics and aids. Data cards for twenty-four aircraft and twenty-four missiles, plus an exciting set of scenarios, cover air combats from the dawn of the jet era through modern day!

What is the difference between this and the Rules Bundle listing?

I bought the original boxed game when it came out. What version is this pdf? I gather there's been a number of changes to it since the original, so want to check they've all been incorporated.

The lack of print-and-build mini/boxes is the weirdest part of this product. They give away FREE mini's in their other games that use similar systems, but they fail to give them here. They obviously hedge every bet they can to make you buy the solid product. (I bought "Attack Vector: Tactical" at my local store).
Here is a list of PDF's someone else posted on another "Asta" product:

No box miniatures included but if you search online they are hosted at various sites.

Hi Ken, does this include box minis now? I have tilt blocks and a suitable map already.

Bought the bundle today, and still do not see the box mini's. Am I missing something?

No - those are physical components; we will add the box mini sheet PDFs to this bundle a little later in the month. Map sheets are simply too large for you to practically print out -- the game is played on a 55x60 hex map!

Original electronic
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.
