Harry - I half expected to see a new topic out here on FSoSI fixes

Anyway, I've noted a couple of formatting issues, and am wondering if anyone else has seen a goof or something with the current pdf?

I've posted version 2.0; now this appears to be truly fixed.

I'd like to do a 2.5, adding in the dual pp concept, thus making this the ONE TRUE EXAMPLE, but I'm not ready yet...

Many thanks for the work you've done on this, it's been very useful to have this example. I hadn't seen this article before until I came across this thread.

I do have a couple of queries though..

The weapons section on page 8 shows the total volume for 100 triple turrets to be 4050kl, or 13.5kl per weapon. On the next page, the total volume is shown as 1350kl, or 13.5kl per turret. Which is correct ? I had always interpreted the rules to mean that the second is correct, i.e. that turret volume is constant, but I'm open to being corrected.

Secondly, where does the x75 at the end of the Frozen Watch calculation come from ? I can't find any reference to it in the rules or the errata.

On a minor note, I think that the crew section might benefit from a little clarification. It's not instantly obvious that the (75/6) > 6 element in the Maintenance crew line refers to the reduction for Ship's Troops. It's also a little odd-looking to see the total crew listed as 287 when the Frozen Watch alone is 300. I could see where it all came from once I looked at it carefully, but it wasn't immediately clear.

The second volume is correct, I thought I'd fixed that. Sigh...

The frozen watch is broken into the same crew sections as the crew is, hence 75x4. A standard frozen watch would be one crew section (75); however, the original Regal design from TCS has a complete replacement crew, so in reality, there are four crew sections waiting to be unthawed.

And the total crew is really 313; I've made a few slight changes here and there (and replaced the small staterooms with real staterooms since there is room).

So, let me see if I can post version 2.01 tonight...
