Crafty Announced that it was available. I'm wondering if they didn't sell out of the first run and are waiting for restock before announcing it here. I pre-ordered direct from Mongoose and my copy hasn't appeared yet. So I doubt it is that. I suspect they just got the first box to GenCon and haven'...

The book's page has been marked "On sale now", and copies were seen at GenCon, but I haven't seen an announcement from Mongoose about general availability…

I've got the PDF and am itching to run and play this. Campaign ideas are just boiling up. It's a really nice system.

… so when do we poor UK pre-orderer's get our proper versions? :)

Gee...looks like I am going to be pushy...was there any more news about this release, I have been a pain to my LGS for the past month about Traveller product. ;) Matt commented in an earlier thread today that they are still working on polishing it.

Well, it does have cheap house prices, a low crime rate, lots of interesting roundabouts and is very nicely placed for driving to Bristol, Bath, Oxford, Reading and for hopping on the train to London - so it isn't all bad.

That said, I'm liking it more in Tonbridge :)

You miss my point. The format the computer uses and the results used at the table do not have to be the same thing.

XML is overkill and has its own set of problems. It is a well understood format, with a lot of support for it. The less said about XHTML the better. Most of the problems do to with XHTML relate to bits of it that can be avoided. CSV will either have to have limited line length or will be as unreada...

This is very important. The SEC file format is primarily a human readable format. All of the other formats under discussion are primarily for machine reading, with the ability to be read by a human.

I'm still decidedly unsold on CSV. You have immense amounts of horizontal scrolling, and can't extend the format with data on new lines (such as histories of planets). XML lets you mix namespaces, so the format could be defined to make use of XHTML modules for text (which would address that particul...
