Default Can we get a book all about Metatronic Generators?

Seriously, I'd love to see a book dedicated entirely to further fleshing out this rule set.

I second this notion. More good GURPS content is more better...er..er!

But on a more serious note, much like Sorcery before it Christoper's Metatronic Generator does have a lot going for it. With a little careful nuggin' and proddin' I think it has a lot room to grow into covering even more situations. Heck, it already does guns and battlesuits so why not see if it can handle full on vehicles.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Especially one with some more detail on adapting it to genres beyond superscience!

This. I would like to see the various Pyramid articles on it (I think there are 3) melded into one whole and where I can quickly find it when I need it. I also want to se it handle a variety of settings/genres.

Perhaps have a metatronic generators chapter in a Gadgets and Inventions book instead?

Which issues of Pyramid have those three articles? I'm only aware of one.

I believe there were only two. There was the OG article in 3/46 Weird Science and the follow up Metatronic Generators II which covered ultra-tech stuff like battlesuits but I can't remember for the life of me what Pyramid it was in.

There's an extension in Pyramid 4/3 "Sci-Fi Tech I" too.

Personally I'd like to see an extension in scope to a bit of a wider discussion between $ cost and character point costs - when to use which depending on campaign type and purpose, suggested conversion ratios (or at least, things to consider). For example, DR at high TL is cheap in $ but expensive in points, which would you charge for what sort of campaign?

Yes please!

How much should this unique magical/super tech/weird thing the party found is worth comes up far to often. Also questions about the possibility of finding for sale these ultra rare and very specific things.
