Galactic Starfire + Elite


Galactic Starfire is the 4th edition of the Starfire System. Released in the summer of 2000, Galactic Starfire was the first edition to be completely designed and written by Marvin Lamb and the Starfire Design Studio. Galactic Starfire is the culmination of multiple years of work to balance the rules and technologies of the Starfire System. Galactic Starfire's main focus is on the strategy game and campaign gameplay. Galactic Starfire introduced the concept of technology trees, balanced and refined the technology systems, simplified and streamlined the campaign system, expanded the system generation options, and improved the consistency of the grammer and terminology used in the rules.

The Elite supplement, released in 2002, further streamlined the rules and introduced improvements to simplify AP and treating squadrons as a single small unit instead of a group of small units. Elite also made further refinements to the rules and appendices and corrected a number of errors found through continued gamplay of the new ruleset.

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.
