Favourite quote from FM 23-90:

2. In case of a hangfire, kick the cannon several times to dislodge the round.

Funny, but not wrong, usually mortars hang fire cause the round gets wedged in the tube with debris and fails to reach the firing pin at the base.

A little surprised none of the comic book options unlock boxing glove arrows.

You mean something like this guy and his arrows for any occasion?



To be honest, he would fit the Slave Soldiers path.

I never noticed, that his bow was so dysfunctional. He will fucking hurt himself with this thing.

The new she-ra cartoon has terrible and boring designs all around. The new She-Ra herself is pretty much the antithesis of the gals in xpiratez.

Yeah, she's more like 63'd Thor.
I like her new design though, it's relatively sensible...

However, I see the mechanics of recent OXCE builds, where certain actions can add some TUs to other units. And (I'm sure I'm not the first one) I was thinking if this can be implemented so the gal firing the weapon can have enough TUs to fire and reload in one turn, if a gal standing next to her (let's call her the loader) gives the TUs by an action to the gal holding the mortar. The plan is the shell that the loader gal is holding has the special properties of giving TUs with an action (say, with a melee or firing), by the amount required to reload the mortar from the ground. Then the loader gal throws the round at the feet of the mortar gal.

+TU items have been in Piratez for ages, man...

Yes, I know. I was referring to those builds.

So, is there a chance for the proposed (or similar) mechanics for assisted reloading of large weapons, to be consider for future implementation into the mod ?

Wow, when did cartoons become so bad-looking?

As for Piratez, are Poisoned and Fire Arrows capable of being used with Combat Bows and higher tiers, or not yet?

Flash animation seems to be in fashion. And it is often cheaper.

They're hunting bow only, and I  don't think it's "yet" - I am not aware of such plans for other bows.

Wow, until now they never crashed but were destroyed. Did not know this was possible.

Yeah they kinda have to be "crashable", because of the prismatic shield tech gate. Seekers or there crew are the only source, and you need them to get forcefeilds, which in turn gates higher studies and a bunch of shield related stuff.

Admittedly they where made with very close crash/kill thresholds, so it can be a right pain to advance this gate.

Thats odd, I almost always managed to only crash those, using seagulls+30mm or gauss. Guess I got lucky.
