Hey Dioxine, since an hospital facility is no supposed to be present in the game, the living quarters description may tell that it provides also hospital support or something alike?

Well it's not really a 'hospital', but I'll add a few words for clarity's sake.

Thanks :) Sry, forgot: the blowpipe was a very very nice touch! Actually, it may fire standard percing darts, and then with some research poisoned and after acid onse. Just my two cents :) overall very very good work on the armory, a neat mix of good and old! As the rest seems i ran out of ideas...anyone has some more ones to share? ^-^

Edit: how about to replace the vanilla TFTD gauus weapons with sprites from xeno operations mod? The only things of the 1995 game i never liked  :'(

Edit 2: Thanks for the ol' rifle!!! I did not see the stun baton in the black market,so i think it's supposed to ba a military police/spartans/government item, right?

You can copy your save over the new version, just look at the thread detailing what happens if you do.

When the cattle prod is unlocked by researching contacts: smugglers, the ufopedia entry names it as stun rod

A bounty killers faction hunting piratez may be interesting; alternatively bounty killing facts to the plot so player may have to be rewarede for his actions...perpapsh lowering a bit "infamy" :D

...and (very) last cartidge to shoot  :(   amjaor uodate should be relased when a new verison of openxcom extended is (eg 2.6--0.98) :) so updating the executable still will provide compatibility with x-piratez update; as of now updating an openxocm extended version leads to incompatibility with newer piratez versions :,(

@foxhound64: see here

Stop telling me what to do. Let's make a few things clear. I will use ANY version I please, and make a release ANY time I please. New OXCE versions are not always bug-free, also, what's the f*cking point of updating if the mod doesn't use any new functionalities? Just stick to the same one to avoid problems. Is that so difficult? And yeah, I know you don't have it easy, since you need your own Linux version.

sry don't wanted to be annoying :,( ok i promise i won't do anymore. See, enthusiasm sometimes plays very bad tricks...:,(

Edit: actually i thought it may avoid problems when you install openxcom extended (very very kindly knapsu has pacaged in in the official repo) and updatin to a newer version may provide problems with x-piratez...well, i'll go to the "manual way" instead. Over and out!!! :)

The mod is already using the latest OXCE version (2.5B), but you need a very specific Nightly to work with that. Basically just rulesets. I am sure Yankes provided links/zips with all the needed files on several occasions (yeah, all you really need are proper ruleset versions, so there is no Linux<>Windows problem, as the file format is the same).

Thanks, i was minding to avoid upgrading problems by matching x-piratez and openxcom extended updates :)

In the meantime, i made a miserable attempt to reconstruct a very tiny paperdoll of the humanist activist, hopefully somebody may want to use it to make a bootypedia image, see the attachment :)

Edit: may be used at least for the color scheme?

Oh, was did not aware of that, but seems the one in the bootypedia has some kind of antialiasing filter, but the one i "cobbled togheter" is made actually of sprites parts copied and pasted from the mod assets (!!!)  :o :)

Honestly, I could easily trounce anyone with the amount of plasma weapons I have in cold storage

Except you can't use these plasma weapons :)

Yeah, I'm probably totally misremembering but I thought I could do that before (previous versions maybe?) ... oh well!

Man, today's stream involved a raid on a splashed Mercenary Destroyer and it was just not worth it... at all. Zero. I'm glad I learned now (never attacked a Destroyer before), as I'd rather learn from my own experiences (hopefully without too much loss). There just doesn't seem to be any type of reward against Mercenaries (which there doesn't have to be; they can essentially just be there to disincentivize the player from expanding too rapidly or intercepting too many ships).

My only concern/question is: shouldn't the larger ships have at least 1 or 2 Life Support Systems? Life Support Systems seem to be added arbitrarily to some ships but not others (although I think it used to be confined to Ordinators but think that was changed a few versions back?). (Suggestions: Cruiser, Destroyer, Envoy, Assault Transport [bootypedia specifically states used in space warfare], and Freighter [due to prevalence and "ease" of raiding; limit to only 1?])

Honestly, in regards to the being behind in weapon research... not sure what to do about that as there isn't anything really to work towards; advancing research in ballistic weaponry doesn't seem like it should be helpful at all in designing laser/plasma weaponry, whereas reverse engineering laser/plasma weaponry should allow rudimentary blueprints for laser/plasma.
