Lucky you! You'll have a new beginning for when you're done. I'm too much of a slow player.. never get much past year 1 before Dioxine changes things so much I end up restarting to try things out.

Can we get rid of the default Skyranger as well? I mean the B-52 has been around for 60years+ but the Skyranger design would be TINY BIT dated with 600+ years....  :D

I might make it harder to acquire later, or maybe exchange hull and picture (if I had an alternative!) but can't really delete - people are using it! :)
But if you ARE using it, from 0.96E it will burn Chemicals as fuel (no more free rides).

Good idea(s)! A ship with a similar layout and size to the Skyranger is the helios (?) in the apocalypse mod, it also has a nice ufopedia screen  ;)
Robin's permission needed of course...

Snip
Chemicals as fuel (no more free rides).
ouch unless the mileage is quite good that is quite a trap purchase. Chemicals are used in so much during the early game and moderately expensive compared to early income. Chemicals never really fall out of use either you just get to the point you can absorb the costs. Hopefully before the junkpiles run out.

A full tank will be around 10 Chemicals (mileage 125 on Skyranger, 200 on Pigeon), and Chemicals are 20x less expensive than Hellerium. So I hope it won't be too punishing.

Seem like reasonable mileage figures. maybe a touch short range for the skyranger. 10 tank at 125 gives you 625 miles operational limit(it needs gas to get home) or about half the range of starting radar.

My Skyranger seems to fly just fine without chems. And it has a lot more range than 625 miles. Are you sure this works?

You probably meant 98E then, with 96E I thought it should already be in.

Say, Dioxine, is it by design that 4 armored vaults have a higher capacity than 1 large vault?
