Re: [New Mod] Wrap Around to Awesome

Heh, this should answer the complaints of all those red-shirts who died with worthless ray guns in their hands for want of good old-fashioned bullets.

Re: Do Laser and Kinetic Wrap Around to Awesome?

So is "Wrap Around to Awesome" a meme yet, or should I not light my victory cigar just yet?

Do Laser and Kinetic Wrap Around to Awesome?

So when Laser and Kinetic fall off the shield and weapon defense specializations is it because they are subsumed by the next weapon type, i.e. "kinetic" is "blast" is "thermonuclear" (but not the other way around; it makes sense if you think of knight's kinetic armor versus tank ballistic armor -- t...

Re: My Ship Maneuvers Like a Pig!

I couldn't be using the ship myself unless I had loaded it from the beginning, could I? Or are there mods that let you change ships mid-game? Anyway since changes are retroactive I can eventually work out a ship that turns like it should. I've finished the game with the Freighter and Fighter in prev...

Re: My Ship Maneuvers Like a Pig!

Thrust seems to be balanced pretty well. Without engine upgrades loading up the ship with cargo makes it accelerate very poorly. With a good engine upgrade that effect is almost completely mitigated. It seems right to me. If I increase the ship's base mass will the change be retroactive to my curren...

My Ship Maneuvers Like a Pig!

My ship maneuvers fine until I load it with ~400 shots of ammo, at which point it turns like a pig in quicksand. From there I can continue to load up the ship with an extra ~62 tons and it doesn't get any worse -- because it's already an unflyable slug. I'm flying a "mod ship", the "Kriegshund", bec...

Re: Dark matter weapons?

Wouldn't Nyan Cat use Kytryn Pods? (If you don't get the joke pronounce it "kitten pods" ...) Actually it's been so long since I've played I doubt Kitten Pods are still the most powerful weapon in the game. They were when I left, but you had like a one-in-bazillion chance of finding ammo. If you fou...

Hmm, now that I've re-read that it doesn't seem very clear, so I'll explain it with an example. Say you're docked at a shipyard that accepts Rin currency. It charges 200 Rin to replace an armor segment. Say you have 15,000 Rin but only 50 credits. The bug is that the shipyard, looking at your 50 cre...

Well, sure, but how do you figure out what to attach to your shiny new unidentified device? A chart of devices, masses, and energy consumption at idle would help me figure out what I had. The stated level of an unknown device isn't trustworthy, correct? But the mass of a device is always reported co...

Duralloy armor is fairly easy to get very cheaply in the first 2-3 systems, especially with a Tinker available.

It's excellent armor, self-repairing so it costs nothing to maintain, strong against laser and kinetic, it'll do all the way to St. K.
