I'm not sure why you're having issues with missiles and the Ion9. It should be incapable of hitting your own shots unless there's a bug somewhere.
I'll test it and if it destroys my missiles I'll file a bug in the ministry.

Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

I took the Ion9 all the way to heretic. Up until there it was mainly used against Luminous drones, very effective. Did not use it much in Heretic, in the beginning only for managing the pteravores together with my longreach. Did most of the missions in Heretic using my trustworthy TM7 and Heavy NAMI...

Re: [Discussion] Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

Actually, a PD device that deflects kinetic rounds is (in the real world) the only possibility to not let them hit you. If you put a laserbeam or other high energy beam on a piece of metal, rock or whatever heavy item that is coming at you with great speed, it will not stop that item or blow it to d...

What happens if the Antarctia gates while you are docked?

So, I just rescued the Antarctica from a bunch of Aquila's. Commander Helios is very happy, gives me the reward and then I start looting the wrecks of the Aquila's. Having done that, found an intact Heavy Nami, with lots of vulcan's so why not upgrade my launcher to that. Also some refuelling might ...

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

Inventories never restock This is not entirely true. If you buy the entire supply of a station's ammo or fuel and probably some other items, it will restock that ammo and fuel over time. This is only when you buy available ammo, not when you are selling. If you sell ammo to the station that it prev...

Re: Semesta I.G.C

CM1 blaster quite often does not hit the main target, especially if the target is small. What happens is that I shoot the target, projectile reaches target and explodes harming everyone around except for the main target. It is not uncommon for modders to create "inaccurate" weapons on purpose. And ...

Re: About NPCService

I think all ships should need to refuel. This would also make it possible to chase down ships by letting them run out of fuel. Considerations are in place of course. All ships belonging to a faction can only refuel at their faction's stations, or stations that are neutral to them. There needs to be ...

Re: One-Week Adventure

I voted for the Anarchists, simply because in the vanilla game they are just cannon fodder. Much like the Centauri warlords. And their backstory is vague.

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

I rarely fail to find a cargo hold in the first few systems, but I wouldn't object to it being more reliable. Maybe shipyards should carry other non-combat equipment, like cargo holds and drives? Yes I thought of that too, a shipyard and Korolov would be the most likely place to buy and install a s...

Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

I think Dvalin will be happy to meet such a legendary player again :) There are some good uses for the Ion9, it is for example one of the few weapons that are really effective against Luminous drones, even if they have ion immune shields, because of the shieldbuster properties. It is a good weapon a...

Re: Quick Question about looted items

And you can use damaged weapons and items to create (other) undamaged weapons and items at the Teraton factories. But they only appear near the end of the game (if at all) so don't wait for that and just don't loot them when you are in a system that offers no possibilities for getting profit out of ...

Military ROMs will always map every enemy station in the system.
Well not always, because they should only do that if there is a military or commonwealth presence in the system. If they are not there the Military Rom will tell you that and map nothing.

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

The first time I played Transcendence there was no choice, only one ship was available, there was no Wolfen or EI500 to choose. And there were no cargo holds either.... So the game came a long way.... I remember vast swarms of Corsairs and Centauri raiders from those early days, maybe at least 25 or...

Re: New Player with Questions

So, in order to recieve the deflector reward, I have to not be as effective. Just don't kill to many pirate frigates, if you kill five of them, the Kronosaurus will be sent after you, killing the Kronosaurus will give you legend status, even if you have never done any Korolov mission. So do the mis...

Re: New Player with Questions

And if you take a wingman in the arena (which is very easy now) they will probably get damaged and never leave the arena because they will try to dock to repair, but the arena does not allow that. So they will keep trying forever to repair their armor in the arena. Order them to wait outside before ...
