Default GURPS Ultra-Tech Fourth Edition

Does GURPS Ultra-Tech Fourth Edition include everything from the third edition versions of GURPS Ultra-Tech, GURPS Ultra-Tech 2, GURPS Cyberpunk, GURPS Psionics, GURPS Robots, and Transhuman Space?

It includes most of the gear from Ultra-Tech 3e and Ultra-Tech 2, and I think that's it.

Is there even a fourth edition of GURPS Ultra-Tech?

Yes if you mean Ultra Tech for GURPS Fourth Edition rather than a Fourth Edition of that book. Based on the Ops question I assume he means the former.

I was going by http://www.warehouse23.com/products/gurps-ultra-tech

I'm wanting to get Ultra Tech, Ultra Tech 2 and Robots, but if the above Ultra Tech contains all three I can get just it. Instead of getting all three books.

It has most of the first two books updated to 4E. Robots is not included.

Yes. That's important. Do you have the fourth edition of the Basic Set? Or are you still using the third edition? You want to get the corresponding edition of Ultra-Tech.

You mentioned psionic devices. For those, you want GURPS Psi-Tech, available as a PDF.

No, I mean the fourth edition of the book, if I had meant "for GURPS fourth edition" I would have said so. Obviously I am aware of a book that has been out nearly as long as GURPS 4e has been.

I have been busy, I may have missed it.

UT has a fair number of robots in it. It doesn't have Robots system for designing robots from scratch.

Bill's right about editions though.

I don't have the Core book yet, all I have is GURPS Lite 4th Edition. So far I also have Aliens, Spaceships 4th Edition, and Space 3rd Edition.

I'm mainly looking for GURPS books for information to help me further develop my own SciFi universe. Do you recommend Core book 4th edition?
