Specifically, about the Holoprojector, the Sub-Space Radio and the Holonet Transceiver.

What use do they have? With the current DM, GNS and hailing system, they'll never have any use at all, so what is/was their use supposed to be?

The most likely response is, "Wait for items to be implemented, and you'll know." ^_^

I believe it was intended to require holonet receivers for posting on the GNS, though? I don't feel like opening the rules pages, so that could have been another item entirely, I suppose.

I thought Subspace Radios and Satellites were the GNS suggestion?

Holonet Receiver could plausibly be used for hacking of all sorts, as well.

The Holoprojecter, I'm a little less certain.

Ah, forgot about the Sub-Space Radio (probably because it looks identical to Stimpacks).

Updated the first post. Added links.

I think the holoprojector was supposed to give a boost to command in combat or something, but I can't honestly recall off the top of my head.

They are merely symptoms of "Cool-list-itis". A swelling of lists of items/features/etc. caused by the creation of the list being done well in advance of the implementation, and without proper thought to coding or function. Of course allowing people to use these lists within the actual environment, seriously hampers changing them later... in other words since the datacards are already distributed, the items cannot simply be removed if we don't find a good use for them.

They will have to have some use created for them, but what that use may be remains to be seen.

Thanks.
