Red Five, He's On My Tail!

One person, one ship -- and even odds on returning home. GURPS Spaceships 4: Fighters, Carriers, and Mecha provides the ships and game mechanics needed for space-fighter and carrier action. It offers GURPS Spaceships statistics and descriptions for dozens of combat spaceships for the near-future and beyond, from tiny-but-agile fighters and drop ships to enormous fleet and assault carriers. It also includes expanded rules for the basic space-combat system in GURPS Spaceships, adding options that simulate small-ship cinematic action. It's up-close and personal in heated space combat, with two combatants each wanting the other dead . . . and if they're not cunning and careful, they could both get what they want.

This is the fourth volume in the GURPS Spaceships series by David Pulver (co-author of GURPS Fourth Edition). It requires only the GURPS Basic Set and GURPS Spaceships. GURPS Space is recommended for guidelines on stardrives, suitable character templates, and campaign settings; GURPS Spaceships 3: Warships and Space Pirates provides descriptions of military operations, tactical hex-based combat, and other warships.

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.
