"layout failure"

That's the level this thread is going towards, you don't like when a rule starts on one page and ends on the next, ok. I think I will leave commenting on this thread to others, since these sort of things is by design and commenting will only start a debate that will clutter down this already cluttered down thread.

The bulk of the errate was caught in the first three pages. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the last five would largely be nit picking.

Tables and their modifiers should be on the same facing pair of pages for usability.  Ideally, on the same page. Given the whitespace on that page, it's fair to say the mods should have been at the foot of the table, whether or not they're on the page prior, since that page will not be visible in the book when it's open.

Sounds like a good suggestion but not for the errata section.

Core Rulebook page 361 Novgorod Station was most likely constructed in 2130, not 2030 as listed.

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.

Is one supposed to be a 'player' version with less information on?
If you load them both in a graphic programm and make an overlay you´ll see easily, that there is no difference beside the color and some minor difference in the layout.

Guess that page 384+ is the the appendix with character sheets, combat map and the map of the cinematics. It just seems wired due their proximity of only eight pages. Beside I´m not a fan of this lime-green design, but it´s better readable when printed B/W.

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...
