There is a bug with the golden/brownish 2-story ship (spartans were using this one) with search lights on the roof and with its entrance on the second story. When clicking to stand atop the stairs, just outside the entrance of the ship, the game will waypoint the gals to first step through the door and then step out onto the stair again

UPDATE: I noticed that the spot where i was directing the gals at was on the second story, but you could in fact stand on the stairs at the same exact spot below, causing the game to act in that way. Maybe if the stairs were longer?

I can't seem to use church neophytes for slavery. Is this a bug?

I'm playing 0.97A, where the bug with the infinitely-exploding wreckage map should be fixed, but i just had it happen again :S

1. Peculiarity
2. Fully intended
3. Missed one tile which happens to be the most common. Will be fixed.

Question on the new Ratman Mob Lieutenant unit:

When setting up the bootypedia page for it, I noticed that the size (lofttemps) of the leader unit is different than the standard ratman unit (1 vs 2). I would expect both of them to be loft-temps 1 (which we are calling small).

(Piratez_Armors.rul lines 386 & 294)

Also, since it wasn't already in rescources, I slapped together a quick inventory image. Idk if you want it or not, but I'll attach it here. Its probably not something you can use easilly, but what the heck.

edit: also spelling in Bootypedia entry: "rougues " should be "rogues"

Thanks for that! Indeed the loftemps should be 1 for both.

Doing more bootypedia work.  Looking at the Shark Jetbike.   The Bootypedia entry says it gets 80% dodge, but Piratez.rul has avoidBonus: 48  (line 14777) .  Is that a discrepancy, or am I misunderstanding how the bonuses work?

80% is the real bonus, based on standard enemy vessels accuracy = 60%. 60*0.8 = 48. So it has a 80% chance of avoiding otherwise succesful hit. If it had avoidBonus >59, it'd be impossible to hit by the enemy :)

Perfect! Thanks for the explanation!

So i've just had a run-in with what i learned were cyclopses. This is my first encounter and i've heard about how tough they are, but are they supposed to not really do any damage? It seems that their projectiles only eat away at your armor, and sometimes they do a bit of damage to hp. Given that, i set my phasers to stun and let all my gals go BANZAIII with their stun rods. Holy shit these suckers can take a lot of stun, but all my other weapons were useless against them :P

I've included a save for documentation

UPDATE: Just after i continued playing from the save, my gals started dropping like flies. Maybe it was a bug that got resolved when i reloaded the game?

They don't do much HP damage, depending on your armor (heavier armor - more damage). They can't hurt you before your armor is totally gone. Their main function is to tank and strip armor, and destroy morale. Quite a fun combo when you have even a couple of Star Gods around. But don't worry, they'll get some hellish buddies eventually :)

Yeah, most likely the 'bug' was in your head :)

I did not know that such a message exists.
