The Double Fire Program is designed to increase the volume of fire from shipboard weaponry. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Double fire allows a ship to draw excess power (if available) from the power plant and thus increase the output of laser weaponry. When this program is functioning, a vessel with an adequate power plant can fire a double beam or double pulse with laser weaponry.
  • When unmonitored and fired without limit, this program can cause malfunction, overload, or other damage within the power plant, manueauver drive, or associated systems. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [10]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [11]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existng or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [12]
