[Playtest Focus] Final Update?

Postby MongooseMatt » Thu Dec 10, 2015 11:38 am

Okay, here at Mongoose, we think the Vehicle Handbook is now complete (in terms of rules).

Prove us wrong!

Can we get it in a single PDF format? I keep a lot of my RPG books on my tablet, and the separate docs stops me from keeping it on the go, which is where I do most of my reading. Otherwise I need to sit at my desk. Hopefully it's not just me :)

Not sure how comfortable you are with I.T. but I use LibreOffice (http://www.libreoffice.org/) which is a free software package that I use instead of Microsoft Office. And it runs on Linux which is what I use (it also runs on Windows and the Apple stuff).

You can use it to convert documents to PDFs. Simply 1) make sure you've got LibreOffice installed and 2) open the document(s) in question from within LibreOffice and 3) select File -> Export as PDF...

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for the suggestion! :)

It's more that they're multiple files, and was hoping msprange could just slap up the PDF. I guess I'll have to merge them and export to PDF like you suggest.

Multiple PDF's can be useful to reference multiple chapters, just pull up whatever part you need.

For some, but it's not what I want. I prefer bookmarks and a good PDF reader.

Not saying it's the only way to do it. But can be a good option if you want to reference more then one area at a time.

Check

See post on Shipping size.

Fusion Plants TL11 and Above how are they treated?

The was a comment about the performance mods, but if the Shipping Size is fixed become Moot.

There are some more but gonna have to finish some builds to find them I think.
