Gear Up Issue 6

Watermarked PDF

The wait is over. Gear UP 6 has arrived and we have a brought you an issue chock full of Heavy Gear related goodies! It’s been a big year for Dream Pod 9. Find out what the Pod has been doing behind the scenes with Stompy Bot Productions and Mektek Studios as they develop the next generation Heavy Gear video game. Gear UP 6 features interviews with key members of the team, insight into the video game, and loads of material related to Heavy Gear Assault.

Golden Gear entries have been reviewed and winners have been chosen, and the first of two parts of an excellent Studio Masterclass article featuring the North’s favorite Strider, the Mammoth get’s the royal treatment by the talented Greg Perkins, Dream Pod 9’s art director. In addition to the Studio Masterclass, a new installment of Terranova Terraformer shows players how to create a portable demo board.

In the artist interview section, the extremely talented vehicle designer, Thomas Schossleitner, tells us how he generates his excellent artwork and which faction he enjoyed working on so far. In addition to artist interviews, the next installment of Primary Solutions, Forged in Fire: Southern Field Guide material, and rules for fielding the new Southern Gears in Heavy Gear Arena are available in this issue along with fieldtesting rules for Utopia and important errata for the Core Rules, Perfect Storm, and Forged in Fire are also included. If that isn’t enough for you, we’ve also included a few goodies for those Peace River players out there.

Hope you enjoy this issue!

My mind was blown with the amount of information on Heavy Gear Assault. Concept illustrations and Masterclass sections are inspirational. Golder Gear photos and winners are a good reference for color combinations. Well worth the wait! [...]

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.
