The "Admiral de Corazon" is bugged regarding moral damage (or is it a feature?). Specifically, moral damage is inverted. Attacks that should give moral (pirate flag, officers lash, vodka) decrease moral instead of adding it. Attacks that should drain moral (leather whip) will add it.

The effect is that when you use the pirate flag in that outfit, the blast will drain your moral to 0 and you are guaranteed to panic the next round. So flag + officers outfit is kinda wonky at the moment.

Once that is fixed, I would suggest increasing the daze damage resistance of the outfit a bit to prevent it from beeing too powerful. Right now the tu regain from the flag blast results in effective tu costs of: mistress 20, baroness 14, pirate queen 9
(blast centered on user, maxed tu and bravery)

Then again, I thought about the math a bit and concluded that a pirate queen using the flag in any outfit that has no stun resistance and tu bonus gets more tu back than flag use costs. So the officers outfit is actually balanced compared to that...

Last time I checked, the flag was not giving anything to the user (she was ignoring the TU gain). If they changed it, well, are you sure it now grants TU to the user?

Edit: oh, in a ratmen rodeo mission it is possible that HE grenades and black powder bomb cannot destroy a door, a white dor don't know if it is a metal one so is supposed to be explosie proof, but whatever for whi wants t check out. Ive trown a few in fron of these, and even on the roof of the containers but nothing

The weakest explosives won't be able to break metal doors. But maybe they're really a bit too strong. That terrain is kinda not polished yet. I just discovered a worse bug with fences in it.

Double checked just to make sure. Yes, it affects the user, giving TU and moral.
Why would it not? It's a stun type explosion, anything that is not immune to stun is affected. You would need special scripts (giving holder stun immunity) to except the user from the effects.

If you are doing any scripting for it, may I suggest setting the moral of the user to 50 after use? Or grant immunity to panic for the holder? It just seems illogical that you do a confidence inspiring battlecry (DEATH TO THE STARGODS!!!!) and then panic the next round (because you have less than 50 moral). Especially silly since it's the high ranking officer that panics.

It is made so that you cannot use the flag when low on Morale.

I understand the intention, yes. Maybe a different implementation can be found that avoids the side effects? (officer panicking after flag use)

Possibilities:
- scale damage/effect with moral instead of / in addition to bravery and reduce moral cost.
- add a check "if moral < xx prohibit use" and reduce moral cost. Needs added ruleset, but should be very simple to add.

1st is possible right now using scripts, weapon damage of hit can be reduce by any arbitrary amount you want.

Not really a bug, but part of engine limitations I'm guessing, but, is the killer Droid supposed to have morale when disguised as human? Lol

Why not? As a "perfect" disguise he should act like he panicked. Otherwise it wouldn't be that big of a suprise.

It's immune to fear and morale loss last time I checked.

See, I went into the passenger ferrying mission and stunned the human version of it with 3 hits of a cattle prod, then it got the message tough girl went berserk and she ended up releasing all her bullets on me! If I get the mission again I can see if I can recreate it. :P
