For most of it, I stuck to my own research and made changes to the research as needed to make a 2D map and to keep things playable with the desired outcome.

Also, Near Stars doesn't go out as far as I will in Earth Sector.

But fair warning, if you're expecting a product that will have each system correspond exactly to an existing real-life star in its exact real-life position, that's not going to be the case here. I did not set out with that as a goal nor is that a part of the product.

Considering how the intro in the Trent-class destroyer book ends with a Chinese naval ship jumping into that system the destroyer is in, and then claiming it belongs to them despite the US already having gone through the legal channels and it being theirs, it does make me wonder if China in the Clement Sector has been using various excuses, akin to the current SCS situation, to take lots of colonies around Earth.
Well, China is the driving force in the setting until the late 2100s when they start to slip a bit as the other nations begin to catch up to them. China will certainly have a lot of colonies in Earth Sector.

TL11 is more common but there are TL10 and TL12 worlds. You're correct on the higher levels in electronics and so forth.

Yes, that's definitely part of the book. Without giving too much away, keep in mind that those nations which invested heavily in time, money, people, and material in Clement Sector will have all of those things taken from them by the Conduit Collapse.

The Cepheus Edition version or the MgT 1e version? Because there are two IIRC.

The Cepheus Engine version. That's the current version.

We do not speak of the MgT version...

All jokes aside, the Cepheus Engine version is a much improved version than the old MgT1e version. If you've only got that version, you're missing quite a bit of additional content and all of the errata repairs.

Also, I'd add that, if you purchased the old version, you can get the new one for free simply by going to your DTRPG library and downloading the latest version.

Thanks!

In most cases, the exception being the Clement Sector Core Setting Book, there was very little difference between the versions. The MgT1e version of, for instance, Subsector Sourcebook 1: Cascadia , was almost identical to the CE one. There were a few changes for legal reasons here and there, and we fixed the errors that we had missed the first time.

I didn't feel right charging people full price to buy a new edition with those few changes. So I just provided the new versions for free.

The CE version of the Core Setting Book has a lot of changes from the MgT1e version...but it's still free to those who purchased the MgT1e version.

It always helps when you deal with the owner of a company.
