    • 9 3D ship system displays
    • 2 sheets of box miniatures, including all of the ships from the full 2nd edition
    • 1 sheet of build-you-own tilt blocks

    The complete 2nd edition PDF bundle includes even more ships, eight more scenarios, the "deep background" on the Empire-Directorate War setting, and the complete 144 page rulebook packed with options to play in any universe you want.

    Is there any way for PDF purchasers to get the ship builder? I'm perfectly content with POD components, but I'd like to build my own ships and play around with the design parameters.

    I believe so yes. Ken Burnside is readily available by e-mail and Facebook to answer any questions. Anaxar is a supplement for this game and edition.

    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.
