Idea: Targeting ROM from Kate if you agree to rescue Katami.

Post by AssumedPseudonym » Wed May 18, 2016 1:38 am

 Some games just don’t spawn a targeting ROM anywhere. Some players just can’t aim for kack and rely heavily on tracking or omnidirectional weapons. That adds up to a bad combination when it’s time to rescue Katami. It’d be nice if Kate offered you a targeting ROM (if you don’t already have targeting capabilities, at least) when you agree to go bust him out. Also, on that general line of thinking, setting the mission target as the Molotok instead of the station if you have targeting capabilities — like how you target Arco Vaughn instead of his habitat back in Eridani when you’re given the mission, assuming you can target objects — would a nice, if minor, adjustment to the mission.

I agree. I've ordered a targeting ROM from a Corporate Trading Post before because one didn't spawn before Sanctuary.

Normally I'm against such things, but the mission is definitely unfair if you don't have one. I'm in favor of changing the mission entirely due to the huge number of glitches associated with it, but as an interim measure this would fix one issue, at least.

Seconded because games without a targeting rom are 5x harder than game with. Not knowing enemy ship HP is a huge disadvantage.

I suggest it given before the Katami mission, because the problem against Molotok. I mean you have hundred deadly tracking missile, but it will useless when you try mess with friendly (but a bad guy) Molotok. But still, Hiro ROM is a big reward that almost equal with Targeting ROM.

I think that's AssumedPseudonym's intention: the targeting ROM is an aid that's offered before the mission is over.

 That was the intent, yes.
