I had plasma swords atm of electro bullets research, but yes, I've missed zombie's vulnerability to it. As for a stun, for me its require too much hits with electro for tough targets and for soft - I can bring them down much easier, than sniping with numerous electro hit, I've decided that its useless after short battle of some medium guild ship, maybe I should recheck all electro ammo and enemies resistance then.

Is there any particular reason the Colossus Siege Tank is restricted to goblins, and is there some code-fiddling possible on my end to make it available to my human soldiers? I'm not gonna let that filth into the barracks just so my glorious human corps can wield this relic of Imperial Might.

Gnomes can drive it too, and they're even better at it.
...Probably not Aryan enough either, eh? ;)

Not quite. The limitation seems incredibly arbitrary, which probably has something to do with Dioxine's artistic vision or something, which is why I'm asking if there's something I can do on my end instead.

No, it has to do with physical size. Should be fairly evident from just looking at the units.

I mean, the model is about the same size as all the other pilotable vehicles. Definitely bigger than the hovertank, which a human has no trouble squeezing into.

Well, if that is so, apologies. I never got to the hovertanks. I shouldn't have spoken.

Well for the real answer balance. the fluff answer is that only loknarrs and gnome are small nuff to work around the weapon. Which if you look at the pedia entry is about 2/3 the whole chassis.

The hovertanks I researched can't fit humans.

You do realize that your entire question is based upon the most arbitrary decision ever? "Coz I don't wanna"? Besides, FYI, Gnomes are basically Ubers that shrunk due to Hellerium deprivation. I'd assume you glorious army excludes Ubers as well?

Also - it's a Bombard, not a Colossus.

But since I'm feeling generous, here's the solution to your problem:
1. In Piratez.rul find the line "  - type: STR_BOMBARD_ARMOR_UC" (there's only 1 such line) This is the code block for The Bombard
2. find the line a bit further down with possible units that can operate it:
    units:
      - STR_SOLDIER_LOKNAR
      - STR_SOLDIER_GNOME
3. Edit as you see fit.

It's good that there are exclusive armors and vehicles for unit types, it gives incentive to diversify. If anything I was somewhat annoyed with the introduction of Gnomes and how they kinda took over one of the Lokk'Naars' few niches in piloting bombards, but they're much more rare then Lokk's so it's not too big a deal.

Wrong, hovertanks are Lokk'Naar/Gnome only as well. Because of their small size, lel.
