Cool, that seems a lot better.  Does the first tier of hq have any 14mm turrets?

Without going too much into detail, the HQ is heavily guarded and assaulting it is a challenge best done with some advanced technology and an elite crew to match. Although the HQ isn't very aggressive initially, it is well-guarded in every phase. The assault is a three-parter, and there's something nastier than 14mm turrets greeting you. I would not attempt it with anything less than with some advanced school graduation tier tech.

Guys how and when I can defeat those big bad enemy bases? I even tried to launch my airbus there and they just annihilated it with interceptors! I am playing 4th month in game and these bases are kinda... troublesome.

You don't, not in April, not in an Airbus and certainly not before getting amor, weapons and, ideally, tanks (or mechs).

You will have to learn to deal with those bases for a while by avoiding that continent.

And you're talking about bases? You are not, by any chance, playong on the highest difficulty? All other difficulties should have a single base by then.

a Ninja Airfield is essentially assaulting a series of bunkers full of enemies that reaction fire you, over open terrain. don't do this without at least armored cars and a Menace's worth of gals, probably more (CONVOY w/ escort or bait HUNTER-KILLER). wear tac armor or better, bring many rocket launchers.

in the meantime, you're just going to have to farm points hard enough to make up the score, and avoid flying into its radar coverage.

I did not play XPiratez 1 year+ and the fact that ninjas now can build bases was a big surprise to me.)

Nah I am on third difficulty level... but for some reason trade guild guys built their base near that first ninja base in Siberia on 3rd month and ninjas built their 2nd base too and all I could do is sitting there and watching my monitor with open mouth.

Ok I will try that tactic with convoy and I am gonna avoid that place till I get some resources and technologies.

I hope old style with bunch of slave soldiers in demolisher armor + mortars and rpgs will give me upper hand in these new battles and I will overgun ninjas and traders... because heavy artillery is the best solution in the early game, right? Right?

Avoid them until you have laser weapons and heavy suit/sniper gear armors. Also get chemical coats if you can. Your biggest enemy and I mean it, are ninja warriors with custom SMG's. Those things are way op in my opinion. Use weapons that disrupt reactions. I assault those guys with with gals equipped with heavy suit + shotgun/riot shield and spears. Once you clear those front bunkers you can use your sniper gear gals to safely clear the field. Use smoke grenades to cover your initial spawns. Be very cautious and methodical ones you get to the habitation zone. Be sure to capture skyforge engineers.

Well then I guess I just gonna play as usual till I get some technologies. Thanks for advices guys, now I kinda understand what type of challenge these ninjas are and in early game it is almost impossible to defeat them.

the ninja bases are too difficult for early game, but there's general activity (missions, ninja raids, ground vehicles etc.) that's good for points. remember, every ninja you bag is another 15 Jack tokens, and the normal Ninja Gals are only as tough as your Pirate Gals.

So, if you play on the easiest difficulty, the game gives you a notice about restrictions based on that selection. What are these restriction?  Because I can't find any documentation on them.

Endgame psionics gets disabled. It's not fatal, but if you want to test the game to the fullest, you can edit difficulty with a notepad in your savegame from 0 to 1.

Hey quick question, is there like an artistic or otherwise explanation for why the namelist for humans has the hard n-word in the list of surnames? Thanks
