That does look like errata. Noted!

Also the psionic talents are easer to roll for in AM4. It's likely that they were adjusted because they are a psionic sociaty, but it might be worth a thought or maybe a clarification.
The talent rolls are easier in AM4 to reflect Zhodani society specifically. The range question is a different story... that could be a genuine addition. Discussion?

Don't see it in the latest consolidation I could find, nor on a quick search, so maybe this is a new errata note:

HG (2nd printing) pg 35-36 there is a discrepancy in the cost of small craft staterooms. The text on pg 35 says "Cr 100,000" while the table on pg 36 says "Cr 50,000".

Apologies if this is already on your list and I missed finding it.

Again unless I've missed it here's another:

Book 1 pg 19 - Gunnery skill - the text says:

"Gunnery: The basic skill is covered on page 13."

But it's not, in any of the Books 1-3, probably/maybe a left over reference from the first prining. This should probably be simply dropped as it is covered by the other text referencing Book 2.

If you're still working on this, another clarification or errata fix has popped up. Again

I don't see it addressed and apparently it has been around for a while without an official note, and has even infected T20...

High Guard - pg24

Major Weapons:

The TL8 and TL9 Particle Accelerators can't be built in a ship at that TL due to the minimum computer limitation of hull size. They simply can't be fit into a hull that can be built with the computer model available at the TL.

Granted one can wiggle an imported computer of high enough TL but that seems weak. The simplest solution might be to drop the TL8 and TL9 PA Spinals. That would leave a hole in the USPs though. Perhaps simply make them TL10? I dunno.

I had run into that starting with book 2 designs, and I simply noted the following... there is no rule that I have found that restricts a ship design to only one computer!

I have often had a dedicated "fire-control computer" that ran all the weapons (and only the weapons), and sometimes had larger ships with 3 or more computers... one for the drive/navigation functions, one for the weapons, one for all the other functions.

If there is such a rule, don't tell me where... just say there is, and I'll go back and look for it (If I missed it in the last 27 years, then obviously I really need to go back and re-read all the books).

I have been told that this isn't errata: the "discrepancy" you have discovered is by design. Multiple times. Even for that other project that I dream of some day getting back to.

"by design"

There's a phrase that's gonna haunt my curiosity chip

I can't imagine. Well, I am actually, but nothing is making much sense.

I'm hoping you can share at some point.

...other project? Oh... yeah I think I know what you're hinting at. It has been quiet, what with all the other projects you're juggling

Hi again Don, maybe not an errata bit* but could use clarification I think. While looking a little closer at the low tech PAWS spinals, more specifically the minimum computer for hull rule, I was struck by a difference between HG and T20. At least the way I'd always interpreted HG. Andrew M-V (per his High Guard Shipyard) interprets it the same way I do for what that's worth as validation of the way I understood the RAW. For comparison:

Code:
      T20          Computer - TL        HG      

     1-600tons        m/1 - 5        600-999tons
   601-1000tons       m/2 - 7       1000-3999tons
  1001-4000tons       m/3 - 9       4000-9999tons
  4001-10,000tons     m/4 - A     10,000-49,999tons
10,001-50,000tons     m/5 - B     50,000-99,999tons
50,001-100,000tons    m/6 - C    100,000-999,999tons

   100,001tons+       m/7 - D      1,000,000tons +
Under this interpretation a TL9 Spinal PAWS ship is doable in HG, but not T20. The TL8 one is still a head scratcher though

* well, maybe for High Guard Shipyard

EDIT: I should really poke around in TCS for more clues but I need more time for that...

Just put in multiple computers.

Actually, this clarification should already be in the errata... yes, look under "High Guard", Page 26, Computer Models (clarification). I'm not all that knowledgeable about T20; you might want to look elsewhere for T20 errata.
