A whole year :( Well, I guess I'll keep working on re-writing the vehicle
design rules.

Speaking of which, I would like some feedback on the general direction I'm

What I want to do is set up the base stats for vehicles and improvements
and add additional levels of modification based on the different ratings SR
allready has for cyber- and bioware. For example: a player wants to design
a car that is rigged and has a pop-up turret in the back trunk. The base
stats for the turret says it requires a lot more room than his car has
available. But if he gets the delta version of the turret there will be
enough room to spare for the spare tire, of course it'll cost him. I.e.,
the grade of the item (normal, alpha - gamma) decides the size and/or the
performance. Gamma armor could be put on a sports car without hampering
its maneuver. A normal 450 hp engine couldn't fit in a volkswagon bug, but
a delta grade version could. This idea has the advantage that it already
uses existing rules instead of new ones. What do you think?
