1. Armory is back. A lot of the extra gun stuff was moved to armory to make the core rulebook more palatable.
2. The Supply drops have, as expected, been merged into the primary books(Armory and Core), as they were getting numerous and they were mostly equipment.
3. The format was changed from a two page document to a 1 page document, as I'm pretty sure printing this game is well off the table.
With that, here are the changelogs
ALSO! One of the players/long time contrubituters is writing and unfucking the shitty Space combat rules, and I'm going to collaborate with him to probably make those rules the standard rules, after we come out of LTS.
It's up and ready for download, so enjoy!

I've more or less finished the core three rulebooks at this point, but having to remake armory has been a serious undertaking that I did not realize how big this would be.
So yeah, not march first, but I promise you that i'm still working on this damn game.
Also! I want to take a break after this. I've been working on this game for a very long time, basically with no real break, and I want to put Ops and Tactics into LTS mode for a little while.
What this means is that I'll be correcting spelling, grammar, and rule contradiction errors in the game but I absolutely positively will not be adding or fixing anything for at LEAST two months.
And just so I can prove I've been working on this damn game, here are the current changelogs for core:
6.41 to 6.42
Merged Cartrige holder and shotshell holder to "Ammunition Holder"
Complete Reformat of the book for easier reading and referencing
Moved a LOT of the guns from the core rulebook to the Armory, as well as some of the more focused rulesets like AR-15 building and gunsmithing.
Consolidated all of the SALT books into Core and Armory
Revised Two Weapon melee and ranged fighting so that if you have both it eliminates the AoO from ranged attacks in melee range while doing a two weapon fighting attack only, but only for normal AoOs, and not for no-miss shots
Reworded Danger sense to say "Roll twice take best result"
Clarified Improvised Proficiency to note that you need to be proficient with the weapon you're improvising
Moved all of the black powder weapons from Modern magika to Core
Reclarified Occupational skills and the bonuses to match with taking occupational skills first, not last
Noted that weapons are primarily closed bolt and removed them from the gun list.
Noted that AoOs come after the action that triggered them, unless otherwise noted
Added the karambit
Changed Grapple(Thanks Consript Gary!)
Changed Civilian MREs to 3 for 1 WP

Notated that Personal Firearms Proficency grants proficency at using firearms but not for actually having the feat
Changed painkillers to give 3 doses per purchase
Changed painkillers to give 6 doses when crafted
Changed temp HP so that when it wears off you lose the amount of HP you gained
Changed painkillers so that when you take one while under it's effects it resets
Removed "Attacking through concealment" as it's redundant
Added decimal point to rope
Changed Contractor's field bag so that it can now hold medium objects
Changed crash rescue suit so that it protects against all areas
Added The fact that Charisma now can positively or negatively affect Wealth Point Rolls

Added Nasopharyngeal airway and lube to standard first aid kit
Add Wire(200') to the small demolitions kit
Made an upgrade for armor that removes all the Molle at once from an armor, to allow LBE to be worn instead.
Notated that fall damage is bludgoning damage
Increased Unemployed skills to 2
Removed notion that offhand weapons only do half POW damage
Changed the wording in single action upgrade
