Re: A possibly dumb question about Armour...

Both plasma and thermo weapons are suitable for the endgame. There aren't any enhancers for plasmas but they do well without them. I personally like to use the advanced tritium cannon; it has a great rate of fire while still doing decent WMD damage, and the overheating is easily controlled, so it is...

Can someone update me on how the bioships work now? I don't appear to be getting growth points for anything, be it refueling, healing, killing or spending fuel.
I haven't played alpha 3 yet, but growth points have been broken since alpha 1. My ticket for it is still open.

Re: The New Korolov : same old tricks

I experienced something like that! It was in one of my games in June, and I forgot to make a ticket of it. I took a screenshot:

Re: Changing ships at shipyards

Black Market shipyards could sell Penitent gunships, while the UAS may sell weaker civilian variants which lack the Penitent styling. After the Benedict mission where you pilot an Atonement, there could be an opportunity to trade your ship for it. At the station's Meeting hall or Matriarch's chamber...

Re: 1.8 Alpha 2

I tried part II on 1.8 alpha 2, and I welcome the lowered prices for Part 2 ships! Now an Eridan costs about 3000 RU instead of 5000, a Swift costs 5500 RU and an Explorer costs less than 2000 RU. I can spend less time pearl poaching, but Tor Quan ships still don't accumulate growth points at all , ...

The CSCs Antarctica and Terra, less than two light-minutes apart. The Antarctica's Centurions sometimes go right over the Terra.

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: New Player with Questions

To get the Class V deflector you need to be promoted to the Master rank without skipping straight to Legend. To avoid getting the Legend rank, I find that it helps if you fail one mission and/or avoid killing Charon frigates yourself. Helena's location is random, but she's found in an EI500 freighte...

Re: New Player with Questions

Slicer has weapon to loot? I killed him before in the Arena before I even went to St. Katherine, but I am pretty sure there was no weapon available to loot. Yeah, the weapon is a PM6 Slicer cannon, which you can only get from his wreck. There's only a small chance that the weapon can be looted unda...

Re: New Player with Questions

Thanks for your answers, but I am interested in vanilla for now. I was using some sort of installed ROM (maybe it was targeting, but i think it was enhanced visual perhaps?) to figure out distance and shooting at a station to figure out ranges and writing down the ranges, but it is strange for such...

Re: New Player with Questions

Normally you can fire only one primary weapon and a launcher at the same time. If you want to shoot more weapons at once you can use linked-fire weapons. These fire along with your primary weapon. However, linked-fire weapons only exist in some mods and the Corporate Command expansion. The repair le...

Re: A Bunch of Lore Questions

1. Mars was terraformed but the Commonwealth doesn't colonize many planets. By the time humans reached Incandescent (in the 2120s) human civilization had already adapted to space and the inconvenience of a planetary gravity well made large-scale colonization undesirable. 2. Stations can produce oxyg...

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

There's an exploit with the Voss Und Szell stations: they buy consumables at a 50% markup but sell them at a 20% markup. This means you can sell some rice, buy it back then sell it back to them again for profit!

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

I started a 0.26.5 game on Monday, and I've done all the missions at the Settlements and Depot, but I never received the 'destroy explorer autons' mission. On the Settlement missions: It's fairly tough taking on a Higan frigate alone, so I just lured them to the system's Settlement so that friendlie...

Re: 1.7 Beta 4 and Part II Alpha Test

The Swift's mature stage appears to be unfinished, but I've noticed that growing to that stage removes your occular torquandis and replaces it with a plasmaphorus jaxii. I don't know if this is intended but I'd much rather be allowed to keep the torquandis. It's better than the jaxii when it comes t...
