Full Plate Mail
« on: April 08, 2016, 05:46:36 am »
A week ago i was going to try the Full Plate armor.

I was able to shoot down a Star God ship, but my gals were outgunned and outnumbered by the star gods, i was able to pull out a couple of cyclop guardians one dead, other alive. Did the research required for FPM but when i was going to produce i realized i required the body of 2 Cyclops per FPM.

That wouldnt be a problem but the star gods disappeared from the game at least for now.

There is somewhat a disbalance with this armor because its an outfit meant for CQB combat, and obtaining cyclops corpses is difficult in mid-game ( star gods dont appear or you are outgunned ), while a Ravenant armor which is actually better suited for CQB than FPM ( Better reactions, stamina, TU, few disadvantages ) is far easier to manufacture and can be made with common materials.

Is the requirement for cyclops corpses there for a reason?

what i mean is that when you are able to manufacture this armors they are already obselete by the ravenant armor.

Besides, requiring the corpse of a dead cyclops to add extra armor plates and meshes to the Metal Armor doesnt seem very logical...

Factions are pretty much random so some games you will face Star Gods more often than in other campaigns; also, yes it can be frustrating when your best armor is rendered useless when you don't have the ingredients, but it's also a main reason there are some many alternatives.
