Condottiere

Cosmic Mongoose
Weapon: Generic 6 Revolver
Type: Medium-Calibre Revolver
Component Cost Weight Other Factors
Receiver Type: Handgun Cr200 0.5kg



I'm trying to figure out why the default cost is two hundred starbux and the weight half a kilogramme.

I, as well, am having difficulties figuring out the weapon construction rules. There seems to be a lot of contradictions in the examples they provide. Also, it seems that most weapons from the CSC are impossible to reverse engineer using the construction rules. Some clarifications would be extremely helpful.

Receiver Type: Longarm Cr400 3kg Quickdraw 0



Why does the civilian shotgun longarm receiver start off with three kilogrammes, instead of two and a half?

Geir stated in the CSC update thread that CSC gear is NOT amenable to reverse engineering.

This is not a question of reverse engineering guns from Central Supply, it's trying to figure out why the example worksheets don't correspond with the rules drawn from the same book.

1'500 x 1.5 = 2'250
2'250 x 0.5 = 1'125
1'125 x 0.75 = 843.75

5 x 1.5 = 7.5
7.5 x 0.75 = 5.625

Presumably, advanced projectile weapon, but that's technological level nine, so unclear how that managed at four and eight, since it's clear that range has been increased by twenty five percent.

And of course, unclear how the sticker price was arrived at.

No doubt. It's one reason I stopped trying to put it on a spreadsheet. Was having trouble implementing everything on one sheet... Might go back and make separate tabs for each type one day... Today is not that day.
I was specifically responded to the reverse engineer part of the post I responded to.

Moving on.

In theory, the end result should be four kilogrammes, and not four and seven tenths.

In general I think the Field cat needs a revision to fit in better with the CSC and core book equipment, Long with a clearer step by step layout in designing a new gun.

I do love the idea of the field cat but it feels in some ways a bit rushed, now that might well be due to reasons like the pandemic or other reasons but still it feels rushed,

Got that wrong, the twenty five percent increase can be explained by very long barrel.

Bill of materials would still be needed.

Environment Suit... P131

"A chest piece is also available, increasing armour to Protection +6 and housing an array of tools or weapon pouches"

Environment Suit with Chest Piece and Full Helmet +9 (+12 vs heat and cold)



Should this be +6 or +9 do you think?
