Default T4 Book 1 QSDS andT4 Book 2 SSDS

Hello Donald,

T4 Book 1 QSDS Sensors do not give any solid range information which I can compare with either T4 Book 2 or Book B to check out the characteristics listed in the sensor table.

I'm a bit confused looking at the details for Step 8 Select Controls and Electronics on page 73 and T4 Book B. The ranges in T4 Book 2 appear to be identical to the ranges used in TNE. IN T4 Book B the ranges are 5, 50, 500, 5,000, 50,000, etc. up to 500,000,000,000.

T4 QSDS mentions high-resolution thermal, PEMS, radar, AEMS, and LADAR. Of the four T4 Book B does not mention high-resolution thermal, has LIDAR not LADAR, and appears to combine radar and AEMS into one table.

T4 SSDS also mentions high-resolution thermal and LADAR.

Can you have someone contact me to figure out some of the above.

May I send you my best guess for a T4 QSDS TL 9 Standard Basic Sensor system using T4 Book B?

Default T4 Book B FF&S Errata

Evening Donald McKinney,

The Consolidated T4 Errata version 0.01 (12/23/11) page 19 notes the Gauss Weapon Mass equation on page 36 of Marc Miller's Traveller Book B Fire, Fusion, & Steel (1720, 1997) needs correction.

On page 91 of Marc Miller's Traveller Book B below Equation 23: Burst Recoil and above Table 63: Ammunition Cost is an untitled equation, which is the Gauss Weapon Equation found on page 26.

My recommendation is to copy the correction from Consolidated T4 Errata page 19 and add the title of Gauss Weapon Mass Equation on page 25 of the Consolidated T4 Errata between the entries for Page 88 and Page 93.

I am working on a Word document covering pages 83 to 112 trying in integrate the Consolidated T4 Errata entries.

In the Consolidated T4 Errata there are notes that the equations do not match those in the "FF&S Equations" document.

Is the document referred to above the one associated with Stuart C. Squibb?

Are the equations in the "FF&S Equations" document the same as the ones found in the Fire, Fusion & Steel (T4) Errata and Addendum compiled by Chris Cox?

May I send you a page of my document that shows how I am handling the tables and equations via email?

Default T4 Book B FF&S minor errata

Hello Donald McKinney,

I believe I have found some minor errata in two tables that are easy for me to post here for review and possible inclusion in a future update to the Consolidated T4 Errata document.

Page 102, Table 159: Basic Hull Size (correction): Tables 134, 137, 141, and 146 have a column header of Displacement (TD). Table 159 has the column Header as Displacement (Td). The recommendation is to change Table 159's Displacement (Td) to Displacement (TD) to match the headers in the other four tables.


Page 106, Table 174: Maximum Speed in Atmosphere (correction): The third line under the column header of Acceleration is shown as 10 < Acceleration (20. The entry, per the second and fourth lines, should be 10 < Acceleration x 20.

Update: T4 Book B FF&S page 7 column 2 Volume: "Spacecraft volume is also described in displacement tons (abbreviated dton or TD).

I'm not sure which one is the best to use.

Default T4:FF&S2 - p.65 - Reactionless Thrusters

T4:FF&S2, p.65 - Reactionless Thrusters (Right Column):

FF&S2 notes that Reactionless Thrusters have a "cut-off" (i.e. drop to .01 efficiency) at 2000AU. T4: Starships, on the other hand, notes that Reactionless Thrusters have a "cut-off" at 2000 solar radii (= 1000 diameters).

Based on later Traveller publications, it would seem that the "2000 solar radii" cut-off is the correct reading.

Harmonization Suggestion: Perhaps Reactionless Thrusters have a "cut-off" (i.e. drop to .01 efficiency) at 2000 radii, but stop functioning completely beyond 2000 AU.

It looks like Don's T4 Errata website is no longer up.

Donald McKinney's Traveller page no longer exists since his passing in December 2015. Marc Miller has been notified that the link on the FFE errata page is pointing to dead link. Hopefully he and Michael McKinney, Donald's son, will have the errata up on FFE.

Hopefully, someone will try filling Donald's shoes on all the Traveller errata pages.

Donald McKinney's family returned the his account to the winterwar.org. Far Future Enterprises (FFE), www.farfuture.net, has part of the errata Donald had up on his web site. Unfortunately, the T4 links, like archive.org, on FFE are still pointing to winterwar.org.

You'll note my link goes to an archived copy of Don's page, not to winterwar itself.
