My old table was 120x80 mu; my current one is 240x120 mu.

I was talking about *Cinematic* speeds above, not Vector. Vector is 
generally slower than Cinematic; I merely used the above speed examples
show the dangers with using vague terms like "slow" and "fast". What I
trying to say is that Vector is generally played at lower speeds than 
Cinematic, but it is quite easy to find Vector-using gaming groups who
faster than some Cinematic-using gaming groups.

Sorry for the confusion :-/

That the Tuffleyverse (and all the Fleet Book designs) is written for 
Cinematic movement, not Vector?
