Re: Carried Over CP - 30 CP limitation
I sent Jim my notes last week for what changes need to be made in the next printing of the rulebook that will happen next year according to the current GMT printing schedule.
One of the things that I noted was that the 30 point CP carry over limit needs to be added. Current limit is 30 RP and 30 CPs if you are using the IC/RC rules from Close Encounters. Also you can carry over more than 30 CPs into the next turn to allow you to refit some of your ships, but any CPs over 30 will be lost at the start of the next Econ Turn.
So unless Jim has changed his mind since the last time we discussed this limit it still stands and will be noted as I have written above in the next printing of the rulebook.
