I wish it were available electronically though, my Mac doesn't have a CD drive, and i haven't needed one for years


We've had a few people ask for this over the last six months, particularly from Europe. I forgot to follow up my conversation with Marvin about doing "digital cd" versions of the Legacy CD and Ultimate CD. Let me get back onto that...

Much appreciated. It's not like 300 MB or so is a big download anymore, though I remember a time when that was definitely true.

I noticed that the Legacy CD contains ISW-4. Does that include the ship listings for the Arachnids and Star Union of Crucis?

It includes all of the unit designs and the order of battle for all of the scenarios for ISW-4, for ALL races involved... including the arachnid omnivoracity and the Star Union of Crucis.

Is the "Forms Booklet" supposed to be in the Legacy CD? I'm trying to find it, but have had no luck so far. Also, is there any version of the map counters (aka the ones in the Downloads folder) that has stars, warp points, and such?

I'm not sure what you mean by "forms booklet."

Hmmm... now that you mention it, probably not. I don't think we had considered that a player would get the older editions and want to print out the counters. None of the player submitted counters included stars, planets, or warp points?

11.04.01 The System Display Maps. The large system display map (the two-part map) is used to set up entire star systems and, when necessary, conduct system play openly. The small system display map appears in the Forms Booklet in two places - as a separate map and as part of the System Data Form (which players should photocopy freely) and is used to plot hidden movement and to chart system data (populations, installations, etc.) known only to one player (and, of course, the Space Master).


From Imperial Starfire, page 1 (or 6, depending on how you count them). It is later mentioned that there is a download in the webpage, but the downloads page is sorta broken so I can't even check.

None include stars, the Terran, Khanate and Sword of holy Terra counter sheets in the "Downloads" folder each include 1 Earthlike planet, 2 Orange planets, 9 asteroids, and no stars, warppoints, moons, ice planets, or similar, and printing the entire thing just for the planets is sort of a waste of material.

Oh no, it's straight up disabled. That was the database that got hacked. There was nothing valuable on it (just news and free downloads), so we deleted and am starting over with a more secure design. Live and learn I suppose.

In the meantime I'm emailing the downloads to people who ask for them. However, you have a CD so you should have pretty much everything. Look and see if you have the Ultra counters, those should have stars and WPs.

None include stars, the Terran, Khanate and Sword of holy Terra counter sheets in the "Downloads" folder each include 1 Earthlike planet, 2 Orange planets, 9 asteroids, and no stars, warppoints, moons, ice planets, or similar, and printing the entire thing just for the planets is sort of a waste of material.


That's why I've never done it either. But a long time ago I bought some sheets of white Chessex blank counters, so when I need a new or unique one, I just make it by hand.

I dont know about the USF counters, but what I might end up doing is mashing the sheets toguether, maybe add some extra units, and use that since the measurements work perfectly when printed on an A4.

Also, are there any template forms for ISF+SM2?
