Hi everybody,
Here a couple of ideas I had about the Car Bodies Hayden put out a few days
ago. First of all I removed Maximum Safe Control speed since that really about
5 miles per hour for all vehicles (I'm sorry captain, but if your going any
faster than that than anything can happen.) I also changed Armor to Body since
Car Body acts like armor against bullets and all frames will have some
armor-like ability. Lastly, (and least importantly) I slightly modified the
number of spaces mostly for estectic reasons.


Type E.Sp P.Sp C.Sp T.Sp Wt. Body
------------ ------ ------ ------ ------ ------- -----

Mini 150 100 50 300 700 1
Small 250 175 75 500 1100 1
Medium 350 250 100 700 1500 2
Large 500 400 200 1100 1800 2
Ex. Large 600 650 250 1500 2400 3

Type: Name of Body Size
E.SP: Engine Space
This area is where one mounts the engine, fuel tanks,
batteries, and other accessories.
P.Sp: Passenger Space
Where you sit. Includes areas for seats, instruments,
C.Sp: Cargo Space
Area not suited for passengers and not set up to handle
the engine or its accessories.
T.Sp: Total Space
Total space in vehicle. Mostly for estectic purposes.
Wt: Weight of the body.
Body: Base (unreinforced) Body score of Frame.

Now if this stirs up some useful commentary I'd do the same treatment (unless
you all hate my modifications) to engines.

See Ya in Virtual Conference,
