I assume the documentation contains schematics for baby nukes. I assume people of earth aren’t ignorant about early 20th century physics and know about the nuclear wars star gods stopped, so the existence of nuclear fission weapons is no secret, they just aren’t allowed to develop them.

But I do not know the schematics of one.

You do. Check Ballista's or DC Mortar's entry.

As far as mods that expand upon the core game(s) go, this mod is still a must have for me. Just recently started a new playthrough after updating to the current 0.99J8 version. Not sure how far I got in my previous playthrough but I'm far more excited about where the new playthrough has in store.

I still mod and cheat to play singleplayer games on my own terms and in my own way to get more out of them, that's just how I roll for years now and it's how escapism works for me the best. The more challenging a game is the more fun it is for me to mow down my foes with a modded/cheaty/witchraft supersoldier I am a Xenophilic Mutant Commando here for a reason you know. So go ahead call me a wierdo, disgusting, dirty mutant, alien scum, cheater or whatever you feel like. Get it out of your system like how I have to get it out of my system about how awesome this mod is.

I mean pillaging, plundering and being free to basically make the game's world one's bitch however one likes, that's just awesome! Thank you, Dioxine!

No problem, you're welcome, just why such a weird coming out? What do you even mean, dude? You want to disgust me by claiming you're a cheater? Or what?

Aye, I am quite odd indeed, is my nature nowadays. Other than that I'm off to lurking in the shadows again after commenting on this update to the mod.

H-o-o-o-o-o-R-A-y-y-y-y!!!!!!!!!

UPD: Thx for the Impaler nerf. Didn't check yet but probably it will crush balance less with the morale drain.

- Update: Base Defenses (SAM/Missile/Fusion get bigger radar, Flak/Laser/Gauss/Plasma maps reworked and a turret for tactical Hideout defense; Flak loses extra crew space; costs adjusted)

Are there plans to eventually add these to enemy hideouts too?

0.99J9 24-Nov-2018
- Added cover art by Berggen

The new cover art is also used in the voodoo training screen, and the palette changes are kinda making my eyes hurt. Would it be possible to tweak those?




Edit: Similar palette effect happens when confirming building a new building.

Dear Dioxine, thank you and bless you for the change of nuke-things. No more losing a crew in one turn. Yes, I want to nuke them back but the balance is good. If this is not the place to sing and dance about Xpiratez then mea culpa, but I sing and dance...

Love what you do,

Maggy

What are the different ship gun classes? I find it hard to figure out when a gun will say "light" in its description, but some not-so-obvious abbreviation in a ship's description.

Also, just saw there's a new version out. Is it possible to use my current saves with newer versions?
