Anyone notice the sonic guns sound a lot like something from the Commodore 64? Is that the vanilla TFTD sound for them, or something used for XPiratez?

I dunno what that specific sound is, but it's not the sound that sonic guns make in TFTD.

0.99J6 31-Aug-2018
- New Armor: Chain Mail / Shield

- Update: The current Combat Stress system replaced with an updated version of the old one (constant, slow Morale loss).
- Update: Reverse is true for enemies now. Because of that, Bravery score of many enemies lowered.

- Increased REA bonus (and STA in one case) on most Loknar armors by 5-10

- Prizes which have been already researched disappear from the manufacturing list

Lovely addition, that shield can give a new life to the already useful chain mail.

I guess the updates to bravery and stun system is to stimulate quicker combats, and punish camping a little more. It is interesting. Let's see how it goes.

REA bonus great!. They return the old loknars in combat, leaving the air combat balance.

And the prizes, super useful!.

I may just not be seeing it anywhere.  But I wanted to give you props for the music choices.  IDK what's original and what's taken from UFO/TFTD, but it's solid.  The opening piece gets me hyped to go plunder.

Question.

Does Full plate should not have at least a little resistance again plasma?

It may not have % resists, but plate is probably the first armor that you can survive a plasma hit in on straight armor value.

True. But Chainmail have 30% resistance against plasma. And Full plate is based in chainmail. I was thinking about at least a 10%. But you are right, and with the shield, you can have good luck against plasma.

It's based on different types of protection; the rationalization for chainmail's resistance to plasma is that it's largely made from superconductive wire, which is good at dissipating energy attacks.  Plate mail uses the chain mail to provide structure to the heavy plates used for protection, but it doesn't use the superconductive wire for the protective bits.  Also, I'd think that adding a plasma resist to plate mail might make it too strong of an armor.

May be tone down smoke from Battlelaser? Weapon meant for power-armored soldiers just screws them over, since power armors do not have thermovisors.
And Fatty could probably set up smoke cover by itself.
Overall not a huge fan of adding smoke to all lasers.

well yes it's probably a nerf but i like it as a realistic feature, it's always nice to see the battlefield evolve from pristine to ruined with smoke and fire everywhere

i also enjoyed when lasers did not leave wounds(they're supposed to cauterise) but it got reverted - i guess maybe because it made early missions vs laser enemies way harder - if you have no way to heal up from wounds you'll die from a thousand cuts.
