Hmm... Is there any weapon that can do the same thing like a pteravore? It would be really cool... I mean, the pteravores are damaging your armor, taking your fuel... Hey.. :idea: Is the fuel useful to enemy ships? Can they ever ran out of fuel?
IIRC....they don't use fuel. That's why one pteravore hitting you is an nuisance, and one pteravore hitting an AI ship is an instakill, albiet a drawn-out one.

Yup. From my memory (a little fuzzy right now about this, although I usually can remember things for a VERY long time) I think it goes like this:

Code: Select all

<OnDamageShields>
(block Nil (1))
</OnDamageShields>
...or something like that.
I really don't care if I get my hair cut... *snip* NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

How about Reaper Missiles? Whats the point of killing your enemies if you can't loot their ships (unless you're radiation-immune)?

Not sure why you consider the X=-Ray laser useless. With a laser colliminator, it's a formidable early to midgame weapon
