While the book is extremely thorough and detailed in the creation of Robots as characters and adding a large degree of modularity towards creating and designing robots, the book's formatting has me frequently jumping back and forth between different ar [...]

As any science-fiction fan knows, there's a lot you can do with robots... so why shouldn't you be able to do the same in Traveller? The Introduction floats a host of ideas to start you off including the intriguing one of actually playing a robot charac [...]

I agree with nearly all the negative comments and their specific points. I'd like to add my own; the fact there has been no meaningful update, errata or anything at all to remedy the godawful mess of a creation system for so long, is a real spit in the [...]

I think a lot of the reviewers criticising this book because it focuses on Robots as characters is a bit unfair... after all the entire "Book X: Y" series are focused on creating player characters of certain types... whilst the "Suppleme [...]

I echo the earlier comments that it primarily focuses on robots as PCs, lacks examples, and the design system is flawed. However I will expound on its lack of consistency with the system and the other supplements. I had eagerly anticipated a book which [...]

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.
