Description:

TESTING THE FRINGES
No world has been left untouched by the Jihad. As the great states battle for survival against their fanatic enemies, the fringes have been left to their own devices, at risk for any number of plots by nearby opportunists and marauding brigands. While some interstellar companies have come to see these frontiers as a potential new customer base for defensive hardware, there are also many others on these “back woods” worlds who have called upon their own resourcefulness, to bring new weapons to bear in the war against eternal chaos. Experimental Technical Readout: Boondocks samples the custom and prototype designs that have begun to turn up on the lesser-known worlds of the BattleTech universe. Each design featured in this book incorporates some of the latest technologies developed by the realms of the Inner Sphere as the war against the Word of Blake continues. These technologies—first described in Tactical Operations—have yet to achieve widespread production, but each has been prototyped and rushed to the field for their desperate consumers. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 13 new experimental BattleMechs, vehicles, and aerospace units presented in this book, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.

Excellent resourse for the XTRO series, many of the Mechs and Vehicles are definitly (sp?) useful, and my group has used them a few times, as a test to see if it is worth it to use these items. I must say, well worth the money for ANY of the XTRO. [...]

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.
