This is a great way of saying "Our generic universal system doesn't work
with most settings!"

For years I tried to futz with GURPS enough to make it TFT-like and
playable and I wound up having to write so much material that I might as
well have written a new game. And its *still* didn't play very well. 

That's when I gave up and went back to TFT. 

But recently I've been talking to someone who actually has re-written major
parts of GURPS to make it a much better game. I'm bugging him to write all
his changes down, but it's pretty interesting. He fixed the skill system,
changed the combat system to 3 second turns, changed the way disadvantages
and magic and psionics all work. Very cool stuff.
