5.10 Errata Thread?
With folks now getting the PDF, it seems like perhaps a sticky errata thread for 5.10 is in order. Would help stop cluttering up the normal conversation here.

Book1 Pp 202

Logic Error

KO target status +1 or greater
QUICK KILL target status +1 or greater

Both refer to target being status +1 or greater which means alert to the action according to page 206 Status

This makes no sense as sneaking up on someone and whacking them on the head to knock would usually mean the opposite condition of the target.. more like status -1 inattentive or worse.

[Minor] Book 2 p.144. Example - maths seems a bit off:
Active Sensors Increase Target Size. An Active Sensor
provides a Mod + Sensor Range S=.
At Range S=7 an ACS ship Size-7 with sensors in Psv
Mode is Size-0 (7-7=0). If it Activates its S=7 Ant AR Radar-9, it becomes Size-7 (7-7+7=0) in the Sensor Task.

p.29 Book 3

Hospitable secondary world generation. Only 1 in 6 produces a hospitable none-main world. And per the note -
- HZ, HZ +HZ
1D Description
1 Inferno
2 Inner World
3 BigWorld
4 StormWorld
5 RadWorld
6 Hospitable*

* Special situation (probably albedo

This could be a way of getting rid of lots of otherwise nice planets around non-primary stars - but does not really fit with the adjacent comments:
Habitable Zone (HZ) orbit number
indicates a world surface environment
hospitable to humans and similar.

Additionally chart 2B (noted for mainworlds):
HZ+1-Cold. Tundra. trade code Tu., but you are as likely to generate an inferno world as a hospitable using the secondary world generation in HZ+1.
So a cold inferno? Perhaps the note should have applied to inferno worlds?

Can we have a standard errata format


Book number, page number, column, paragraph number, chart name, chart number

1st and 2nd are a basic requirement to define location of error, other data just makes it easier.

Type of error:

Textual error (spelling, grammar, wrong label, etc)
Logic error (system results in an illogical result)
Mechanic error (mechanic used is used in a improper manner)

Description of issue:

1st paragraph: What it says that is possibly incorrect
2nd paragraph: Why incorrect.
3rd paragraph: What you believe is correct, or if you don't have a solution leave this off

Book 1, page 7, first column: page number for The Senses is 187, not 186. This is shown correctly in the two other Contents pages.

Book 3, page 262, top of page, spelling error: Bestiary (without the 'a').
