StarCluster Antigravity Guide

ZIP File

The StarCluster Antigravity Guide is an in-depth technical paper on the physics of anti/artificial gravity. The Guide discusses the parameters of the antigravity field effect and its uses in the StarCluster. Opening the Guide is a discussion of A-Grav plates, and how they can be stacked to compensate for field attenuation. The field itself, its region of effect, direction, and modulation, are brought up next. Uses of the field for propulsion, suspension, and attraction are explored, including such details as power consumption, footprint, and near-surface field effects. Antigravity is the key technological breakthrough at Tech Level 9, allowing everything from the safe handling of anti-matter to dry toilets. Specific examples of A-Grav use are used as examples including gravitic grapples, frictionless surfaces, suspensor and lock-down mechanisms, forcecages, and GRADAR.

This guide is also available as part of the StarCluster Technical Supplement #2. If you already have that supplement, you don't need to get this one.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
