Default Signature Gear Question

Hi. I've read through some of the other threads referencing Signature Gear, and I'm still having a problem. I've run the Patcher and the Data Update from http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/charact...rt/update.html

I'm running 4.0.423 according to the About page.

I add the Signature Gear advantage, but I can only add 1 point of it. It won't let me add more than 1. I add the modifier to the equipment, and that removes the cost from my Money attribute. But there's no Signature Gear attribute, and I know I shouldn't be writing off almost $8000 worth of armor for just 1 point. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Signature Gear has been revised in some later books, so there are two versions of the advantage, one in the Basic Set and another that appears in some of the later files.

In the Basic Set version it basically gives you cash value to buy the equipment with, and you can buy multiple levels of it to get more cash value.

In later versions it has only one level for 1 point and provides plot protection for a single piece or set of equipment. You still have to acquire the equipment with cash, which you would do by either taking Wealth or by Trading Points for Cash.

I'd have to know which data files you're loading, because you are most likely loading a data file for one of the later books which revises Signature Gear.

Thanks for that explanation. I removed a couple data files I wasn't really needing and it works just the way the Basic Book says now. Thank you again!
