@Aramis... The good movie westerns are wildly different from watching a TV western. However I am partial to "Have Gun Will Travel" and "The Wild Wild West"

Moderate as needed.

Could we get details on both of these?

So... If I understand correctly for my science skills I have to pick a primary one and then the others cascade at half?

Example. My Science skill is 6. I pick a primary discipline of biology (6) and the other sciences are then at 3. Correct?

Yes. Then the others may be raised from there in play (or, houserule: with the general skill points)

Is ship design too different from those versions to C&G? IIRC I&EF used th same system, if enlarged, as ships so designed were expected to be quite bigger.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

Not so different. I don't have C&G, so I can't be certain, but...

I can extract the relevant portions of IC&EF design sequences. Or, you can build it using the core book (it's compatible, but has some extra requirements - like a bridge).

Biggest difference is crewing:
Captain (o), Pilot (p), Signalman (p) required
Trimsman (p) required if using liftwood
Engineers: = rating of largest power plant
Gunners by weapon. The ratings are the same across Soldier's Manual, core book, and Sky Galleons, tho' the overall weapons lists are not.

There are also some differences in quarters (1 ton each, the first 10 free of money charge in CB vs included, 2.5 tons per additional person in C&G. I guess IC&EF uses the C&G formula) and some additions (as lab, not being in C&G, and I guess necessary in this ship). Also C&G has no provisions for hydrogen lift nor (of course) for Ether Propellers.

One question remains though: does an Ether Flyer need to be able to reach Very High alttitude to engage the Ether Propeller?

As I said, I assume that it needs it, as Ether Propeller will not work unde 24000 feet (at Earth atmosphere), and I guess this must be (at least) very high alttitude.

In order to be able to roll McBean's ressearch without clotting any thread with its large number of dice rolls (most of them depending on the result of the former one, so, as I understand dice rolling, not able to be in the same post), would it be OK to keep it in a separate thread?
