Actually, my intention, once this forum has pointed out any glaring errors, is to ask Mr. Fugate for his formal permission. I have Mr. Sanger's permission. I suppose I should note that in the file [img]smile.gif[/img]

While the copyright is Roger's, the IP (in my mind) remains Mr. Fugate's.

Yes, I get along with Roger Sanger. I may disagree with him from time to time, but I've always been polite about it. And I've never delved into certain events -- it distracts from gaming.

So, here's the purpose -- fix the article so that it works, and get the legitimate permission of all involved.

I'm asking this forum to tweak it. And I'll ignore further postings on copyright (and I'll add something to the file about Roger saying I can... I have that "reference" around here somewhere...).

Wow... that was quick. Joe Fugate has reviewed the work and given his permission as well, and I found the "joint copyright" statement I worked out with Roger.

So... what's wrong with the redone article?

I've found one problem: Meson Screens. I was drawn to this issue by reviewing notes from the TML in 1990, and sure enough, it's huge.

Any other issues?

Hello All:

I was using the downloaded article last night while designing a ship (just to see what I had been doing wrong!), and I think I came across an error in the Weapons example.

The article states that the 'Regal' has 100 missle turrets, each with three launchers, giving us 300 launchers total. Now, in the calculations example, the Volume is calculated by multiplying 300x13.5. This didn't seem right, so I went to the rules...on page 73 of the Ref's Manual, it pretty clearly states that each Missle Turret is 13.5 kl, and can hold up to 3 launchers. So...shouldn't the calculation example have used 100x13.5 for Volume calcs? Did I miss something?

Also, the same section refers to the Missle UCP table on page 75. However, the table is at the top of page 73.
