Can somebody tell me what an Optimized White Globe Pack is?

I've never heard of this before.

It's 850 MCr of fun.

It's from the MT design sequence, section 7 - screens. It's TL 21, so I don't expect the PCs to have one soon.

Thanks! So unless they find one in an Ancients ruins, they don't get one.

In MT, white globes are like black globes but allow you to manuver or fire, so no needing flicking. Also in MT, optimized means making smaller (but usually USP code 1).

In this specific case it's only optimized in price and power usage (by a negligible margin, at those TLs where antimatter is available), as it is larger and heavier than a non-optimized USP code 1 White Globe...

Their use is not described in combat rules, though, but is in errata.

In a Tech-15 Imperium, I'm not sure they could even imagine a Tech-21 device. Well, I guess the players could...

The globes, proton shields, and others make me cringe.

Shalom,

Why?

I mean if you'd be willing to explain. This a new one on me.
