Hi Sally....thanks for the heads up...picked up a copy of the FTL;2488 Complete Edition

I was curious as to why Two supplements published in 1986 was not included in the Complete edition as part of the Addendums section of the pdf ??

1) Cop 2448 by Tucholka and Kreig Branden
2) Star Charts by Tucholka and Lloyd Stilwell.

According to Wikipedia, the last known edition was put out in 1990 (3rd edition)
will there be an updated new 4th edition coming out anytime soon with new supplementary material?

They were not included because Richard did not own the rights to them completely like the rest of the ftl:2448 publications.

We have a small group of people looking into revising FTL and fixing errors or things that simply were not known at the time the books were written, but it is a slow project.

Product Information
Rule System(s)
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.
