(Answered) Simulator Pods in AToW Companion
« on: 21 February 2013, 23:35:27 »
How much do they weigh? I've been looking at making a dropship with training facilities aboard.

Ive been assuming that they weigh the same as a cockpit (3 tons) due to the mechanical "jostling" equipment and heat generators necessary to make them realistic.

3 tons works, but as you noted, we don't have published stats yet.

Hello,

Well, huh! I can't believe I managed to omit all weight data from those items entirely! I mean, I see why in some cases, where the gear involved was simply software, but the pods really should have received weights to work from....

Here is some errata for you, then:

p. 190, AToW - Advanced Combat Practice Equipment Table - Add a "Mass" column between the Affiliation and Notes columns, with the following data:

Field Simulation System
Infantry Practice Mesh   5 kg
Vehicular Inhibitor Kit   —
Vehicular Holo-Projector   500 kg
Field Simulation Server   1,000 kg

Console-Based Null-Network
Console Interrupt Kit   —
Null-Network Server      250 kg

Simulator Pods
Simulator Pod, Basic      245 kg
Simulator Pod, Enhanced   1,500 kg
Pod Command Server   1,000 kg

That should do it.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,

- Herbert Beas
