Re: Corebook Errata

Still not finding that OP, for some reason ... thanks though, DI.

I take it then no-one else really has found a good reason for it, either.

One might have chosen to use the other one to place out monsters and items for the GM's benefit...

Re: Corebook Errata

Don't know if it's a bug or a feature, or if I'm just missing something ... but I have seen no readily discernible reason why the Hadley's Hope plans on pages 376-377 are repeated on pages 384-385, except with messier colours.

Re: Making Kids... KIDS...

Not sure I see the problem with the Kid class, or the concept of Kids being fully competent members in a team of adults of any class. After all, today it is widely accepted that 14-16 year-olds are far more competent to decide matters pertaining to how the world should be run than its adult leaders....

NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

This is going to be a bit of a story, I’m afraid ... please bear with me. Or, just skip to the deck plans, below!   Here’s the thing: when you start to analyse it in any detail, you'll very soon realise that the Nostromo , as a design effort, is a mess. A huge mess. And there is a good reason why th...

Re: Sidearm mistake/oversight?

The writer knows the Veep was missing. I'm sure we'll see it in the upcoming Colonial Marines book. ;)  The M4A3 is actually from the Tech Manual and made its way into AvP Classic before appearing in Colonial Marines.  I hope it does! :-) (if you refer to the footnote in the OP, you'll find the M4A...

Re: Sidearm mistake/oversight?

Thanks, Rymdhamster! Indeed, it seems Aliens: Colonial Marines chose to just go with the info in the ALIENS: Colonial Marines Technical Manual book, the firearm in the illustration you linked to being, as you say, just the straight-off Colt M1911A1 (with an under-barrel laser sight). Fria Ligan has ...

Re: Sidearm mistake/oversight?

Not unlikely you are right ... but in my mind, the H&K being more obscure, and looking more futuristic, should have made it a better candidate for use in the base game than the obvious recognition factor of the "Browning pistols" that literally originate from the time of our grandfathers and great-g...

Sidearm mistake/oversight? (summary on p.2)

EDIT: Pictorial summary on Page 2. The "M4A3 Service Pistol" described as the "standard sidearm" of the USCMC ... I have to wonder where it comes from. The picture looks sort of like a strangely proportioned hybrid between a Colt M1911A1 (never seen in ALIENS) and the S&W 39 that Vasquez privately ...
