Explore Uncharted Stars!

With these vessels of metal and plastic and a crew of hearty souls, ancient dreams of roaming the cosmos can be made real!

GURPS Spaceships 5: Exploration and Colony Spacecraft is a toolkit that gives GMs the ships and game mechanics needed for campaigns focusing on deep-space exploration. It includes GURPS Spaceships statistics and descriptions for dozens of exploration and colony vessels, from near-future interplanetary rockets to giant interstellar generation ships.

It also provides basic rules for survey and first-contact expeditions, plus simple systems for handling the hazards of long voyages through deep space, such as cosmic rays and solar flares.

This is the fifth 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 highly recommended for its guidelines on running space campaigns and creating worlds and systems to explore and colonize.

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.
