The 0.99N5.1.1 introduced a new weapon: the homefort rifle! (see screenshoit attached) it's an improvement of the homefront, maybe we gonna see a new RCF weapon improvement? I hoe so...

Another thought: actually if the player takes the path "embrace the power" it enables - after some research - the possibility to buy at the black market the craft corresponding to the picked codex, but actually since these vessel are unique shouldn't be manufactured only?

And if the path "reject the power" is taken, selling the drill and the hull might have different consequences in the story, eg other factions/criminals might be able to use the craft by a random codex randomly picked by RNG. Would make more sense or might take a lot of work to make such modifications? Whatever, it's just food for thought. :)

Anyway, playing with RSSWizard's high quality sound mod and it isspectacular! Hope Dioxine might want to merge itinto xpiratez!

Lastly, masochist tought: to buold the workshop research:
wrench
stapler
hammer (throwing ones are in game already so ok)
screwdriver (to be addded..)

and to build a bunch of the aforementiond items are needed... but these should be more common in general in the maps, especially the stapler that as of now seems to be a guild-exclusive

Transifex messed up the file. Try the one attached.

I'm raiding a science vessel on a "Academy propaganda" mission, and it's full of academy provosts. Like 10 of them, and not a single nurse.
Bug ? Hidden surprise ? Update I've missed ?

Anyone know why the Govts are launching crackdowns on me? I'd be fine with it since I can kill them all just fine, but it tanks my monthly score into the ground and leads to an inevitable Game Over.

That would probably be the Govt Enmity missions added in N5.
To my understanding, there are two things that cause them to spawn:
1) When you get to Boss Rank (stops when *Family Ties* is researched);
2) When your starting base is in the Theban Hive (you'll get an event notification It Was Your Choice and start getting attacked from the next month onward, this one is three separate mission generators stopped by Contacts: Thebes, Big Boss Rank and Public Enemy Rank respectively).

Really? That's 5 in-game months down the drain, I guess.

Returned into the game after some pretty long absence. I'm reallly intrigued by new Aurora's theme. I tried to write down the lyrics, but couldn't find the original. Does anyone have the source of the song? It's just called ROBOT_DAY in the game files

The song is "Hear You Scream" by Hania Zdunek/Lee
Here's a Youtube link if you want it: https://youtu.be/9EU3kUXC0_I

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?

Are the small vaults empty?
