Eh, you don't miss much, the writing is terrible

Wasn’t Battletech always plagued by this in every of its forms?

Wow, it seems someone has been hard at work! Also, is that a parody of Tron's disks? LOL.

Eh, you don't miss much, the writing is terrible, the SJW bullshit is strong and there are many bugs and poor optimization that pretty much demands you to wait for the inevitable "extended edition" one or two years after launch.

Keep your awful political opinions out of this thread, thanks.

Edit:
vvvvv
You just voiced your own political opinions by calling his ones "awful"

I sure did! Great work, detective.

This seems fascinating and all, but this really is not the right place to discuss this because it's literally off topic.  If only a forum section dedicated to off topic discussion exists...

If you don't want any political opinions in this thread then you're a hypocrite. Or it's just the "awful" ones? What if i think your beliefs are awful?

Calm your tits. It's a formal matter, this thread is neither for politics nor Battletech discussion. Create a new one, feel free, even here in Piratez section, I do not ban for political opinions. Just for f*ck sake's keep the main sticky Piratez thread stick to Piratez and at least somewhat related stuff. I'm not dead you know, just not posting much nowadays.

The unarmed combat is a new cool feature, lets hope it comes regularly in the next version.

I have an idea. The best pirates in rank Baroness or Queen, can later here also disarm opponents with maybe a 30% chance. Master melee could also throw the opponent. And as best they can attack telepathically like the Sectoids, after a training in the dojo. So, but only for the best pirates and in the final game, they do not need weapons or magic stuff anymore, they are real goddesses.
That would be really cool! ::)

Disarming and throwing sounds good on paper but how to program it in the engine?
Also 'throwing' an opponent for what purpose? If you stand in his face just bash him down or simply stab him.
Everything you want to 'throw' away from you is something you don't want to have standing in your melee range to begin with (like zombies etc.)

That the opponent faints and loses the weapon is already integrated.
'Disarming' would be the extension in the script that the weapon does not land on the ground, but in your hitting hand. The fainting is not triggered.
Throwing, however, would only be the result of a stronger punch. I would call him the 'Six-Inch Punch' and he moves the opponent a field or two back, that's all!

The blank hand in the game offers many possibilities, theoretically you can define any effect that was previously reserved for weapons and items, also as a spell. But I would favor doing this without the many wands and occult items. Real magic is just a form of suggestion and telepathy, more Jedi and less Harry Potter! ;)

I feel like I missed something. I'm looking for bombers to get the Higher Studies tech, but I've never encountered Magical Girls, Soul Gems, or Lucky Stars. I have a cloning center but I have no idea why. I've encountered Ghost Gals though. Where do I find Magical Girls?

On heart-shaped Pink Ships, bearing gifts of love.

Spoiler:
Researching Strange Message (3) will make them fly out on a monthly basis. They always land, so it's a good idea to just tail them until they do.

I'm such an idiot. I've been keeping cloaking field investigation purposefully unprioritized in research so I could peruse the tech tree at any time. Doh. Thanks a bunch.

Sorry for my offtopic (kind of x-piratez related). A while ago, I found hi-res x-piratez logo somewhere in the net, and for some reason, I can't find it again  :(
Can someone drop a link?
