Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Oh I have must have been misled. I remember reading a wiki weapons guide on the transcendence wiki I think that kept hammering the point that "particle is king" early on.

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Hah I am always getting murdered by Arco Vaughn lol Use the disposable launcher and the SmartCannon. You get them for a reason; they're better weapons than any of the base ships start with. I am still using SmartCannon at the Battle Maximus system. Is that unlucky or is it hard to find an omnidirec...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

I had no idea that is how it worked. Very interesting stuff. Thanks shane! Our Pilots should have been more informative in their replies. I always try to hold back on responding because the wealth of their knowledge runs very deep and their creativity is even deeper. Every game is different, even e...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Also with Korolov shipping if I keep "cancelling" the missions I noticed they eventually stop popping up. Is there a waiting period to get them to offer them to me again in that same system? The Player has No - none - zero impact on the presence of a station in the game so long as that station is b...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Ah I didn't know that bug before. It is so tempting to try and figure out the commerce route more because I want to buy everything I see in stores but I am still on a first runthrough. I am thinking I could save more money in the long run with tracking missiles and omni weapons because it cuts down...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Titanium ore isn't worth much, but you should be able to sell it at Commonwealth stations and a few others. Different stations want different things. Inventories never restock, and the more a station has of a given good, the less it's willing to pay for more of that good, so eventually your little ...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Later in the game you can find linked-fire weapons that can fire at the same time as your main weapon. However, in addition to eating into your energy budget, they tend to be externally-mounted, which means they can easily be damaged (irreparably in most cases) by enemy weapons' fire. Otherwise, ye...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Ah thanks a lot for the clarification. I can't remember but I am guessing autons might be external stuff too?

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 Yeah, you can only have one weapon active at a time. (Well, two, including the missile launcher, but that’s a different trigger key. Some mods work around this in assorted ways, but let’s not get into those just now.) You switch between them with the “W” key. Yeah no worries, I am strictly just tr...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Also sorry to be a pest... but my memory is very foggy when using the Sapphire I have multiple weapons right now on her and one of them is a dual shooting Centauri Recoiless and the other one is a single fire level 1 recoiless (non centauri). If they are both enabled how come my Centauri is only one...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

And to clarify WMD a little more: the WMD rating tracks the proportion of damage dealt to hardened targets. Specifically, multiply the number given by 10, and you get the exact percentage of base damage (IE: a weapon with 10 base average damage with a WMD5 indication will do 50% damage to hardened ...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 Automatic targeting for omnidirectional or tracking weapons will typically pick the nearest hostile target. The targeting ROM lets you specify your target for those weapons with the “T” key. You can also target non-hostiles with the “F” key or clear your selected target with the “R” key. Also, tar...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

Thank you for all your responses. I appreciate the generosity this community has show towards its players. Another thing I never got to really test is getting the Targeting ROM. Does this basically make all your weapons home in or auto target kind of like an omnidirectional weapon or is it something...
