Unfortunately there isn't that much we can have from meals in terms of effects, so this hasn't been developed very far.
One could make a scripted meal which boosts this or that stat, but it would just mean spending the first turn applying it to everyone. Not a good design.

You created the amazing Stimm and Atom Beer:  when research is complete and a recipe like Fried Innards is ready, could it not give boost for healing by giving some tiny recovery bonus to the Mess Hall?  I mean to sit down there and eat such an amazingly tasting food, it surely must be healing?

First of all, while I contributed a bit, Dioxine is the only creator of Piratez and he is the only one to be credited for it. ;)

Secondly, doesn't Mess Hall already give a medical bonus? I think it does, but haven't really checked.

Maybe with the transformation system something can be made in that regard. But ultimately, I thought those recipes were merchandise, and intended for selling.

Yes, bootypedia tells that but  personally cannot quantify the amount. Someone knows?

Zombies' melee is REALLY strong, you don't want to get hit by them ever.

Superman/ironman:
Humanists again. I didn't expect that they field a large tank that can fire rockets around. My squad got wiped out again. Lost the METALLO..
 :o It had the Armored Hull component requirement and I had only one of that. I guess I won't build another METALLO anytime soon?

Are contributions generally welcome? I keep spotting typos and errors in the Bootypedia I'd like to fix, and it's probably faster to just edit it myself than post the list.

Unfortunately, you can only make one Menace class ship, as there are no other Menacing Hulls in the game. But kudos for not savescumming!

Sure, it would be appreciated.

Superman/Ironman:
Last man standing! 11 zombies, funky, singer, etc.. were finally massacred. I fouled a rocket strike killing half of my team, then my last survivor - constantly losing morale and gaining lots of stun damage made it back to my Mighty Skyranger-2 - a plane only fools use, when their  Menace Class Rider with 16 crew spaces was lost during a Humanist large tank crew-wipe.
In the  skyranger the Gal constantly nibbled on chocolate and stimms, managed to take enough T-T rockets with her, when the Alien Hunt Mode was activated, so I could see the last remaining two zombies all the time! Wheeew..

Interceptor repair question:
How can I speed up repair of my damaged interceptors? Station more workers or slaves at the base?

You can't.

EDIT: Actually there is one way: get shot at less.

Superhuman/ironman:
Finally an Academy Gunship showed up with 5000 speed! What I was waiting for to renew my old fleet. I just didn't have the heart to sell those old, trusty ships of mine. The Gunship shot down three of my Shark Jetbikes, one Hunter Killer with only two guns loaded (the rocket launchers were empty) and destroyed one Predator. But then one of my Krakens finally gutted it and shot it down over China.
At one point at least 9 ships were chasing the bastard from continent to continent, taking over when it reached their territory. We even lost the Gunship once, but shortly after it resurfaced on Hyperwave radar. WooOooHooo!! 
My biggest ship is the Skyranger, after losing METALLO, so I don't even dare to send less than a Convoy to try to clean up the crashed bastard with rockets and heavy weaponry. I think two Armored Cars equipped with rocket launchers will turn the tide of war in my favor. I don't want the Academy wiping out another company of mine!

Academy Bomber:
Shortly after my above victory a large bomber followed. I launched about 40 ships at it, Shark Jetbikes, Pachyderms, Krakens, Scarabs, a Hunter Killer and two Predators. The screen resembled a nuclear war, where all warheads slowly fly towards one target. Only 6 ships remained, out of ammo, returning to the base to rearm and repair. :D  I wanted to renew my fleet. Now is the perfect opportunity!
