Question

Marc is looking at producing a CDRom of the original GDW MegaTraveller material. This would include a dozen or so books in an editable/searchable PDF format, all on a single CDRom.

Yes, I would like to see a MegaTraveller errata corrected CD ROM. However, I would like to see calculable tables and lots of artwork and the Challenge articles.

Sound like I am asking too much? Considering how long we have to wait for a product. I think this is very feasible.

Marc also dig deep and pull out some treasures that were never published, as he has tons of Traveller stuff and MegaTraveller was probably when Traveller had just peaked.

Depending on price, yes I would be interested.

But I am more interested in FFE finishing out the CT Reprint run.

Per the poll:

For $40 if it has a dozen or so books that I can copy text from (i.e. OCR) with errata at the *very* least included (if not fixed within).

Fancy packaging isn't that big a deal. Some basic label or text on the cd itself would be fine. Paper sleeves are ok though the slim cd jewel cases would also be fine.

Interactive forms would be great but I'd prefer to have the cd if having stuff like that caused too many problems.

per Marc:

'So it should be clear that it would have the entire MT canon. In text editable and printable and searchable PDFs. '

A couple of thoughts...

Erratta corrected is a definite plus - almost a must, although 'editable' implies we can correct it ourselves if needs be.

Articles from Challenge also would be a definite plus.... since the CT 'canon' also includes JTAS and Challenge - MT 'canon' should do likewise. 'twould be nice to have all of the MT Challenge material gathered in one place as the MT content gets a mite thin in later issues...

'Editable forms' tables etc. are much more likely to occur if Marc doesn't have to do the work. Petetion your favorite Guru.

Packaging is not a big deal - black with red text would do just fine

ps I'll be buying it just as soon as there is something to buy - but then, Marc could write 'Traveller' on a piece of cardboard in felt tip pen and I'd probably buy it...... TravWhore that I am.

Thumbs up

Heh. I've only been asking him to do this for the past several years... I'd buy it in a heartbeat. $40? That all? Paper sleeve is fine too.

The biggest problems for me are how long would it take to put such a disk out and how would it impact the other reprints - I have been chomping at the bit for T2K V2 sinve V1 shipped, for example and as much as I would love this disk, I don't want to see the other reprints get significantly slowed by this.

At present Marc has committed to the CT reprints which are mostly completed, the T2K reprints which are just started, and the 2300 reprints that haven't even begun. Plus there are a number of other GDW products that he owns the IP for that I would love to see reprints of (anyone here ever play Assualt?). The MT material is desireable, but the real question in the end, for me, is what is the non-monitary cost?

William
