Yep, my preference is the original list due to having played this game
for so long against a wide variety of players and played all the races
multiple times and having won with every race and lost with some of them...
There are a few things I object to and that's the slot filler and various
other abuses of game limitations.
Beyond that, with a few exceptions, the game is surprisingly balanced.
There are the easy races to play:
CofM and Bots.
There are the hard races to play:
Empire and Fascist.
Then the rest vary based upon learning how to play them.
For me, the Size Matters list is more of a fun list.
The Fixing Tim's list is fix the problem hulls, don't overdo them and
remove slot fillers.
Funny thing is, even after either list is done, I'll play original.
I might play an altlist for a kick but I prefer original.
Good points though!

Most games nowadays have a book/guide to playing....... perhaps all thats needed for new players is a quick link to the race guides some players have written.
Its a quick game to learn, but a slow game to master........ and after reading some of the discussions concerning various races ship lists, i am concerned about losing the balance thats there.
I don't. Nothing will ever replace Tim's shiplist unless Tim himself does so.
The projects you see before you are just that, and only certain players are going to uses the shiplist(s) that are coming out.
