Connection of repulsor and Inertial compensatorEdit
There is a short example scenario on the 11th page of Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, First Edition. In this scenario, the Roark Garnet fell himself a hundred kilo heavier. He says, they were exposed to the full gravity of the planet. He ask his companion, where the repulsor is located, and repairs it. It seems there is a mistake here. If the repulsor is malfunctioning, they the ship would be falling and they would fell no weight. I think the inercial compensator was actually malfunctioning. This error could be explained if I assume, that the inercial compensator is connected someway to the repulsor, and the malfunction of the latter caused the failure of the previous. Can I add this to this article's body or BTS? If I can, coould it be generalized, that every repulsor system is connected in some way to the inercial compensator system? Or this is all Original Research? Darth Morrt 10:40, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
different devices with the same function, or multiple names for one device? Edit
Is there a source stating that the inertial compensator, inertial damper, and acceleration compensator are different names for the same device? Or are we assuming this because these devices perform similar or identical functions? If the latter, I don't believe such an assumption is valid: by parallel, someone reading stories set in our universe might erroneously conclude that a carburetor was also known as a fuel injection system, since both would be mentioned as performing the same function in car engines.
I don't have The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which is the obvious place to check this. The Star Wars Encyclopedia (as the Guides before it) has an entry for "acceleration compensator" but not the other terms. Asithol (talk) 19:40, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
