Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

I actually did get a black market cargo hold shortly after St. Katherines Star. I never did find a normal cargo hold, but I didn't exactly look for one either, not knowing that they existed. In any case I don't really understand why, from a gameplay point of view, to have such reduced cargo space, t...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

As the new player in question, I decided to quickly play a new game as a Wolfen, replicating the similar conditions by not taking Korolov missions and replicating a similar playing style. Yep similar problem. In the first playthrough I was hoarding damaged weapons and armour, limiting cargo space to...

Re: Quick Question about looted items

Just a quick question about looted items. I have looted a couple of weapons that need to be repaired, but I am unable to either repair them, install them or sell them. I also have found other items such as plating that does not show up when selling. How does this work? Damaged weapons and armour ca...

Re: New Player with Questions

There must have been charon bases in the system to which I was doing the escorting missions. Anyhow I did another circuit of the ungoverned territories with an explorer auton and still no dead wife. Volkov will happily journey with me to the Core it seems. Btw I was generally using both system and m...

Re: New Player with Questions

I had already revieved Volkov. The Mk V is the mystery. It sounds like I aren't meant to kill pirate frigates, but if I don't, either I die, or the freighters die. As for Volkov, I gave up on keeping him alive halfway through the outer realm. He was with me every step of the way till then, destroyin...

Re: New Player with Questions

So, in order to recieve the deflector reward, I have to not be as effective. That seems odd. I can't be bothered to search every EI500 wreck for Volkov to leave, and it might even be destroyed. I am pretty sure I have visited every station in the ungoverened territories since I was using system ROM ...

Re: New Player with Questions

In my first play thorugh I didn't get any Korolov stations till Charon, which was promptly destroyed. If it wasn't for the 5000 credits from the agricultural station, I might had even run out of money for fuel, such is the harship of a new player with a small cargohold. In my second playthough, I ha...

Re: New Player with Questions

I see. Perhaps I destroyed them on the way to the arcology. Would had been nice if freighter escort missions were given instead if no enemy stations are available. 4 Iocrym stations? Sounds wonderful. Anyways, I think I just enjoyed the near instantaneous acceleration of the upgraded drives a bit to...

Re: New Player with Questions

Thanks Derakon, I destroyed an iocrym station which I assumed was spawning ships, but they must have all started spawning regularily after I finished the Ringer research mission. Unlike the other research missions, it doesn't seem to tell you that the iocrym have noticed their presence. I get the me...

Re: New Player with Questions

It is running out of missions. Calling it hitting the highest rank doesn't change that the carriers have run out of missions to give. I've entered the Heretics Gate. I wonder, is there a way to stop the Iocrym from destroying all those research stations? They all started spawning all of a sudden and...

Re: New Player with Questions

It depends on what enemy stations spawn in the system. If you get Sung slave camps, Marauder compounds, or Sapiens compounds, they’ll send you on missions to go destroy them. There were plenty of enemy stations in St.Katherines. The HQ didn't offer a single mission. I've seemed to run out of the ca...

Re: New Player with Questions

Thanks about how to use the jumpdrive. It's nice being able to cut out playing time. In my case, when I was fighting the Sung, I didn't have any particle weapons. I was still using lasers and kinetics till I entered the Outer Realm, and the Sung blew up their own slave camps. Btw, does anybody know ...

Re: New Player with Questions

Please, go ahead and spoiler away. This game seem full of unintuitive elements. 50 credits is obscenely low for a rare item. In any case I have sold it off to a Teraton Nest for 100 rin. After some experimentation with the Terton Fabricator Chamber, I converted a longarm device into a Transpace Jumd...

Re: New Player with Questions

Thank you Ferdinand, for answering the questions to which I have actually asked. I had assumed that the patcher spider could be repaired since if you died, or self destructed, you reappeared with it repaired. Another question: what is the use of Optical knowledge array and Abbasid Thanogram? They gi...

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 ...
