Hey.

Just a quick question. I have the GT anniversary edition and have just bought the "Latest Models" expansion (so basically I got everything released as far as I am aware) but am confused about the class IV naming. The "another big expansion" adds class IV and the "latest models" add IVC... so where is class IVB? I'm probably missing something simple but just wanted to ask.

Cheers,
Andrew

P.S. GT is epic.

You're also missing IV A...

The Latest Models ships are all C-class ships; the B-class ships (II B and III B) come from Another Big Expansion, and two of the A-class ships (I A and II A) come from The Big Expansion - the original game had I, II, III and III A

Presumably they decided that it was better to have an all C-class expansion rather than introducing class IV A

Class IV A and B ships did not pass minimum safety inspections.

Considering the insane nature of some of the other ships, you're probably wondering how they passed!

Well then... if that's the case I don't think I want to see them!

...

Until a "forbidden / lost ships" expansion comes out

Thanks for the answers.

There's also the missing I B

If it weren't for III A and IV, you'd be able to tell which expansion a ship class came from simply by looking at its letter.
