When I got the Compendium 2e, I didn’t expect to ever need another revision to the rules again. It turns out, though, that there’s quite a few good ideas that came later on. Here are a few of the major rules changes that occured after Compendium 2e:
In ADQ 9/1, new AADA regulations required all competing vehicles to be able to travel 150 miles at their cruising speed. Reflex rolls began to be set at 4 for all competitors. (This of course made Driver skill much more important– level one and two each would increase the HC of the car by 1 automatically!) Also, ADQ&A notes that anti-vehicular ammo (and various other odd “old school” equipment) ceased to exist.
ADQ 9/3 printed rules to fix the out-of-control oil gun action. It no longer received the +4 bonus for targeting the ground and it made a smaller counter.
ADQ 10/1 printed the much needed rules from Uncle Albert’s Catalogue from Hell to fix Ramplates and Jump Jets.
Finally, ADQ 10/2 printed a new AADA ruling that measuring distances would be counted as a firing action. (As a side note, this issue also featured a Backfire by David Searle that proposed a new system for creating a gas engine of any size, though I doubt they ever became official.)
