X-Piratez, with the Bay12 community
« on: October 23, 2015, 12:26:48 pm »
Hello everyone,

I have been doing a play through of Piratez extended for quite a while with the Bay12 Games community. It turns out that Dwarf Fortress players do enjoy xcom, namely because the games share the ability to name units about their friends and watch them die horribly.

This is the story of Eve Jobs-sama the Big Boss, who is trying to show the trade guild, the government, even the star god themselves that they are threading into the wrong neighborhood, with distant help from the mutant alliance and the occasional friendly enemy. She celebrated success, suffered heavy losses. Rivers are flowing with the blood of swabbies. But she never gave up her Grog induced adventure.

Will she end up ruling the world? Perhaps not, but we can dream.

So without further introduction :


Chainsaws!


Bikinis!


Terrible Weaponry!


Explosions!

Let's play X-Piratez
Because X-COM was too serious

Here is the episode list:

I want to participate!

That's great because there is a new base called Troy. It is ready to terrorize the nearby countries but it lack one important thing: strong gals to show who is the boss. So if you wish you can be named there go ahead and ask.

You can also vote for a new base, after all there are factions who has been left free for too long and deserve some spanking.

Ha! Nice! You've been doing what I wanted to do, but much better than me it looks like. Congratz! It takes levels of dedication that I (visibly) don't have.. And to think of doing an actual LP..!

Martian Max reporting! Ideally a close-ranged support, decent/good accuracy and reactions (especially reactions!) with a rifle/LACC or whatever you are using that's good at snap shots and a melee weapon on the belt (pipe if not very fighty, or something like a short sword type otherwise). All of that, strength permitting, of course. If very weak, just a rifle to cover the crazy gals who charge forward!

Yeah, Boltgun is a very meticulous spoiler. ;) I like it, since I'm already pretty familiar with early to mid game.

This LP is spoilerific, I post every research I go through, which gets funny sometimes because some updates made it backwards.

Feb 2602, Runts at work

Not much happened, the radars detected nothing fun, but this gave me the ability to focus on the workshops. I got 2 custom guns on Troy, lots of metal armor and synthsuits on the Cave of Booty, and replaced all cutlasses and axes with tech blades.

So it's was good uneventful update.

Feb 2602, Back in business

It occurred to me that Asia is always super busy.

Mar 2602, Smoke and tech swords

Using an interceptor for ground battle is a stupid idea and that's what the pirates did.

Nice to see Max being useful! Good work on taking on the shippin' with only a predator's crew! I don't think I'd try that (I prefer overwhelming force: the more one-sided a fight is, the fewer wounded I bring back).

Have you had any luck with transport ships? I'm at a similar game point (~a year) and still flying about in the Bonny waiting for an upgrade. Got a few interceptor types but no transports :/

This combat was like a pokemon battle when you bring the right critter to fight a guy who uses only one type. The gals were resistant to piercing and the enemies only had assault rifles. The only dangerous enemy was a guy with a flamethrower but smoke grenades are OP and ensured that he could not attack until he was too close to survive.

I did not have any new transport ship and the gals are still flying on the Bonny or a skyranger. The best I can produce is a Kraken and it's a better interceptor than a transport. I have unlocked a topic for a 'long range interceptor' so that's what I'll try next.

lol! What does it tell about us that we can explain things with pokemon analogies? :D

This feels like a reunion of the "Piratez Capt'n Union"! Meet your peers and exchange experiences to increase your booty to body rate!

In my game of Piratez, before it moved to extended, I had managed to get a bigger lander than the Bonny (bit faster too!). I think crafts depend on getting info on many enemy crafts. So I guess the answer is to catch lots of engineers/pilots and question them? I was interrogating a lot more last time.. so I'm trying that now. I had a lot of blueprints, but apparently not the right ones.

As an insider reporter, who already played the super secret next release, I'll give you a controlled leak: Kraken's passenger space will increase from 6 to 8! (Hopefully Dioxine won't sue me now.) But it's still more of a fighter than a transport.

That's good news! With that speed, it's not like it can act like much of an interceptor either.. So upping the transport is nice. If you have good enough gals and gear, it can replace the skyranger as it is faster, can down its own small shippings and carry the gals too.
