My only complaint with the new systems is that salaries are just too high now. Particularly playing with male touch, and needing a bigger roast, salaries are just prohibitive now. I'm not against having ranks and higher salaries for all the soldiers, but at least for lokk, peasants and ss is just too much to have the same increase as gals.

You can do it even in ironman. Just copy/paste the save. Heck, access to the savefile is so easy that if you are going to cheat, you will do it anyway.

I don't think the feature has a possibility.

It existed long time ago. It was removed. If I remember correctly, it interfere with some intended mechanism, and was kinda cheaty.

Or... you can enforce it yourself.

What do I do? I don't have automatic save. I have a save the last day of the month, and a working save. Working save is just for when I end playing for the day. I allow myself to repeat the month if it was too bad. I never ever save during missions (Except because I finished playing for the day, but try not to anyways). I unbind quick load / quick save, so no easy access to "accidental loading". If feeling cheaty,  I allow myself a middle month checkpoint.

It is not precisely a super honorable system, but is a compromise between 'macho' Ironman and "loading/reloading cycle until alien miss"

Just updated and played a little... gosh, the new range system gets my finances to hell!. Playing male touch now is just getting harder. Those salaries for Slaves and Peasants adds up quickly... And I have a princess now, That gal cost a lot.

Side note: Voodoo strength used for the voodoo orb (panic and mind control) is V.Power * V.Skill.
Max stat hybrid: 75 * 75 = 5625
Max stat gal in Witch armor: 81 * 70 = 5670
So a hybrid can be just as good as a weirdgal at using a voodoo orb. The hybrids inbuilt psi is ~10% weaker than a voodoo orb.

I think that is ok, because all other stats of a gal are superior

Lore wise, is it something stablished on the moon? Some lunar missions can be cool.

The thing with male touch is that slave soldiers are not as strong or start with as much stats than gals, they are more fragile, and the armor selection is not as good as with the gals. After crusader / demolition armor, things get a little more bearable. And you need to get accustomed to lose more troops. It is kinda harsh in the early game. You need to know more the game. Know with which enemies use smoke, have more numbers, been better with different units, take more care of the small number of gals you are going to find. But it is an interesting way to take. I just sacrifice lot of peasants so my other units can get better stats, and then they get very usable. There are some battles where you.want to push above your current level, where gals are going to be better, but the gross of your battle can be done with other units without an excessive hurdle.

Their stats grow normally. If you want to gave them more stats increase, use armors that give more XP. Sailor, gym suit, bikini, brainer, etc.

Syns are OP but rare enough so this is not a issue.

After OXCE 5.4, moving facilities is removed. I do also think it is a shame. BTW, if I remember correctly, J16 comes with OXCE 5.4, so you should be able to do it yet.

Designer Pets (requires Broken Church Beastmaster)

"In addition to the creation of genetically engineered monsters, the Church also partakes in the breeding of exotic pets, both as gifts to it's high ranking members, and to be sold for a pretty penny. The Beastmaster politely instructed us on how we could do so ourselves, but we need both Medical facilities and vacant beast storage to do so. Gestation takes some time, and no matter what creature we breed, we always get a litter of six new units upon project completion. All creatures are statistically superior to their more common equivalents, and have additional psionic abilities."

Leads to Designer Dog, Exotic Bird, Majestic Cat

Designer Dog

"The best traits of both a Blood Hound and Guard Dog rolled into one, with a supersonic bark that damages armor and causes enemies to panic."

Exotic Bird

"A majestic flying creature. Has incredible vision, even at night, and can detect enemies through walls to some extent. NV:30, Sense:6"

Majestic Cat

"The most beautiful pussy that ever lived. It's can boost the morale of multiple soldiers at once, and it's claw attacks ignore 90% of enemy armor.

It seems nice but:

Bark damage armor, no, it is too much. Ignore % of armor and damage only morale an TU it is better.

Exoctic bird. Sense 3 and NV20 its powerful enough. If wanted, spot 2-3.

Cat. I prefer the shredder cat mod. 90% ignore is extremly OP. Maybe just change damage to bio.

Hi. Very short (maybe kinda dumb) question.

How does the ToArmor: attribute works?

I understand that the difference between ToArmor and ToArmorPre is the moment when the damage to the armor is applied. But, I wanted to know if ToArmor can fail to do any damage to the armor.

I guess it is something like this.

Armor: 100
wDamage: 100
ToArmor: 0.1

if you roll 50%, 50, then you do no damage to the armor. But, if it is ToArmorPre, you do 5 damage to the armor
if wDamage is 150, you do 15 with ToArmorPre, and 5 with ToArmor.

It is correct?
