0-hr: Xuan Wu


Leisure Transport


The purpose of the Xuan Wu line of leisure transports is to provide comfortable accommodations and a variety of entertainment facilities for about 50 passengers in a mid-sized ship. Aves Engineering originally developed the craft under military contract as an armored transport. After the war, the design was modified to cater to civilian clientele. A single Armadillo-class shuttle pod is carried, as are half a dozen life boats. The large cargo bay could easily be used as a hangar if desired, but is more often used exclusively for cargo (including the ubiquitous HMT containers) and luggage. The standard crew includes a dozen human personnel plus a cadre of robotic servitors.

The Xuan Wu package contains three highly detailed, layered PDF files:

• Main Book
    - 20 page PDF file detailing the ship and interior areas.
    - Contains 3D rendered scenes as well as orthographic views of the ships.
    - Includes system independent statistics designed for easy adaptation to your game of choice.
    - Background, art, and text are on different layers for custom display and printing.

• Map Pages
    - 28 page PDF file containing complete interior maps and instructions for assembly.
    - Miniature-scale maps for tactical combat with an optional 1 inch = 5 ft grid.
    - Divided into pages for easy printing in full color or printer-friendly black and white.
    - Selectable layers include: grid, black & white version, and optional objects.

The name Xuan Wu is taken from Chinese mythology where it is a northern constellation associated with winter and represented by a snake-entwined black tortoise. It was the turtle-like shape of the ship’s upper hull that inspired the name. Amenities include a gym, dance floor, and cinema as well as a spacious lounge and small arcade.

C'mon! Your preview has no floorplans?

The flash "quick preview" functionality is buggy and beyond my control; it is supposed to preview the entire document. There are partial images of the deckplans in the "publisher preview" PDF document.

Interesting. When I first looked at this, there was no publisher preview, otherwise I would not have mentioned it!
Now, there is one.

Thanks for your time!

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.
