i'm usin 0.99N5.2.1 and i cannot build large vaults over small ones - bacausa game says "facility in use" - though i built the formers one next to another because one of these is an armored one, see picture attached.

in next upcoming versions will be possibile eventually build large ones over the smallers, regardless the type, as happens for the living quarters/barracks?
I believe this is because regular vaults can be built over with different buildings, but armored vaults cannot. If they were all basic vaults in a 2x2 grid it would work, but having that one armored vault prevents it.

Edit: The "Facility in use" message here likely means that you have too much stuff in storage at that base, and there wouldn't be enough space to hold it while the large vault is building. Building over existing vaults, even with bigger ones, effectively counts as removing the current building and having the new one in construction. You won't get the benefits of more space until the new one has finished construction. So you'll need to clear out your stuff from Pervert Shelter by selling or transferring to make room.

Edit2: It can also mean that the workshop space provided by the current vaults is being used by manufacturing projects at that base, so that's another thing to check.

oh.. would be nice if when dismantling one of these stuff is redistribuire in the remaining ones... it should be like an upgrade not a new construction (without losing the function) but maybe that is an engine limitaton?

And yes workshop is beign used by 50 runts, so shopping the project might save space allowing me to dismantle the armored one?

I've just realized I can't get to Cydonia with the Conqueror.
Is it supposed to be or you're trying to ruin lives for ones who walk through your xpz's hell trying not to go mad at the same time.

I just got an outrageous event : (See Attachment)
And I must say : How dare they make me pay taxes ?

How can we call ourselves pirates if we pay taxes ?
How can I call myself a captain if I let such an affront unpunished ?
Especially when I'm short on money.
What the point of all those explosives sitting in the cave ?


Anyways, there is something wrong with this event. It's clearly the government stealing you, putting you in deep shit (I never have enough money, even after 45 months), and you can't do anything except suck it ? Why I can't make a 'friendly visit' to the taxman, and explain to him and his office why being too zealous at work is a bad idea for your health ?
Even if the price for such an action is a -5k points mission and a big stash of govt fine for every wall I destroyed.

Land deeds are good though.

I am currently 170 turns into a base defence mission. I just can't find the last few church people, especially with my gals panicking/berserking every other turn.

And on that, I also find it weird that:
If you attack someone else's base, the gals will eventually go insane and keep panicking (though this is unlikely to happen, since the enemies will go and face you.)
But if someone else attacks your base, your gals will eventually go insane and keep panicking, while the enemies hide in your own base, not even trying to kill you.

What is the trigger for the below two items?

- Getting Scented Message 2
- Going to the next phase of the Ninja vs Pirates arc - I am only seeing Ninja APCs and I have fully researched them apart from 4 researches that are gated by 'Ninja Hideouts'

Also, I now have 2 Padlocks of Fear - how can one open the gate?

Because you are effectively working for them, and the whole piracy thing is more like your gang's motif than historical accuracy. :) If anything, you're more like privateers.
That's my take on this, anyway.

Also, you should have 3m if you did so well on infamy last month. Try not to tap out your cash on the 1st of month.

Also 45 months in and you have still trouble with 3M? Come on now.  That is just not believable.

Yeah, this gave me a pause as well. I didn't want to criticise, I don't know the situation, but I've never seen anything like this before. Must be some weird campaign.

I don't have upkeep problems. It just I have never enough money.
Between the plasma defenses, the high-level armors, the high-tech buildings, money disappears really fast.

Save is linked if you want to have a look.

I mean, that's just the nature of the business. There's a reason a Campaign can take 5-6+ years in game.

Sell off components you don't need- have a Mint constantly printing out 100$ chips; You don't need to get everything in a single month. Just work towards it as the game plan. The Hellerium Fuel Capsule grind really does give you the time you need to get your pieces all in a row.

Usually a reason that I personally focus on *One* of those things at a time, and maybe supplement my needs as they come along. Retrotech still kills plenty fine, and Defender/Assault Armor still holds up late game- despite having power armor.

And get cash cow bases asap.
I have two bases with a token defense. It started as a plantation base. Now it's full of power plants and prisons for the courtesans/dancers, plus a casino.

Thank you. Interestingly it seems i had never manufactured offerings to purple bloom. That seems to be the only one missing from my research. I will give it a shot.

Thanks for the link - I have used to discover I need to research all Lokk Narr scriptures for Ninja war to kick off.
