GURPS Spaceships 6: Mining and Industrial Spacecraft


There's Gold in Them Thar Moons!

GURPS Spaceships 6: Mining and Industrial Spacecraft equips you to exploit the not-so-empty void for commercial gain. It includes 29 ready-to-use vessels, from orbital factories, mining platforms, and shipyards . . . through salvage spacecraft, tugs, and tankers . . . to the TL12^ Leviathan-class constructor, for those times when you just have to demolish a planet to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Alongside these are rules for building, repairing, refitting, and upgrading spaceships - and for inventing new designs and bigger, better systems.

Nature may abhor a vacuum, but intelligent life adores using it for industry.

This is the sixth 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 information on space and celestial bodies to exploit.

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.
