The reason I picked up this book was to get the weapons chart so I could have fun with High Frontier (the aerospace version of the game). Looking over just the weapons chart I see a key problem. The stats for combat and construction are mixed together. If they had designed the chart so one page was the combat stats, and the other page for construction, that would have helped. I went ahead and made a sheet like that for my personal use (each page had the weapons name, one page had all the construction stats, the other had all the combat stats).

The dark text on the black background also meant that in order to read anything, I had to highlight or zoom in to see the text. When you have to zoom to 300% to read the text, that means there was little editorial review.

This product could be made so much better if the publisher would just change the background to something lighter, with dark text. The light background would at least lower print costs, and the dark text would make it easier to read. As it is, the only way to use the book would be to do a text copy from each page into a separate document.

While the product looks interesting it's completely unreadable. Dark grey text on a background of varying shades of grey is miserable. The first couple of pages (toc etc.) are ok, but after that, I can only read a couple of pages before my eyes want to cross.

I just started looking through the PDF and the text is very unusually difficult to make out against the background used. I'm not the kind of person who normally cares about fonts, but the one chosen is too thin for the background image used. It needs to be on a different background, maybe with the area the text is at screened at 50% opacity or something. I was hoping it was just the first few pages, but the whole book is like this. I'm glad I only paid $5.99, because any more and I'd demand a refund (first time ever on Drivethrurpg, too). I'm not sure I'll ever be able to read the rules enough to really decide if they are good or not, which is unfortunate, because the setting sounds good. Maybe if there was a printer friendly version without the background.
