You can beat anything with savescumming.

That said, Cats were netfed already in N3.

No better way to store large amount of money than gold on lower difficulties. (On higher difficulties, you store your money in investment in bases)

1: true, tho i'm pretty sure you could beat ninja hq with just 8 pre-nerf catgirls with only like 2 losses if you played really carefully even without savescum

2: i see, thanks for the answer

also, random question, which missions do aquamen show up on? i need it for higher studies (i bought three flippin academy scientists before i got the science vessel doc but i can't find aquamen for the life of me :/, what i get for skipping underwater missions earlier ig)

I believe Aquamen only appear on three missions:
Beach Sweep (Surface, unlocked through Dreams of the Deep)
They Came From The Sea (Surface, one of Jack's Lvl B Bounty hunts)
Devil's Reef (Underwater, randomly appears starting late in the first year)

Beach Sweep is ambushing a bunch of Deep Ones, Lobstermen and Aquamen on a beach (usually jungle) with a few civilians around.
They Came From The Sea is a big fort defense against an army of the above, with no civilians.
Devil's Reef is destroying three beacons with an army of the above around. You can leave with an overall win after destroying the beacons, however. Killing all enemies is not required (or advised).

Ninja stars. Also javelins and throwing axes, to a lesser degree.

Red: Current unit sees this hostile.
Green: Another own unit sees this hostile.
Blue: Own unit with critical (fatal) wounds
Purple: Own unit close to fainting, or dying of overstun.

They are displayed in this order of priority. First red, then green then blue, then purple.

They are awarded if you reach a certain number of points at the end of the month. They are meant to reflect your political status.
Each rank unlocks some benefits, but also places certain expectations (generally speaking, you should maintain a certain level of points each month).
You can only advance by 1 rank per month.

..and in the end managedto manufacture a dutchman! Was lucky i catch a "broken ancient airbus" by event (a prequisite for that craft) but still no interception capabilities...but raised my revius score from "big jock" to "thug" (currently by the end of aug 2601) but most important finally i was able to repel a dark ones base crackdown, so i can continue playing, hurra!!

Need some interception craft now...

Edit: in the menatime i managed to reach the end of nov 2601, researched the "buckaroo" but score is dropping (bully 2.sav) :'(
