Wrong movie, think of something WAY more known.

mortal kombat?

As for the soldier diaries brake into 0.99A, i was wondering, in the recap screen after a battle, instead of first award, second award and so on, might be displayed the exact ward name instead (eg. some kind of best friend, etc.)

(kinda of) explanatory screenshot attached :)

I am slowly dying inside every time I read any of your comments.

The exact name of award as shown in bootypedia is also shown on this screen... IN YELLOW HIGHLIGHTED TEXT, so that nobody can miss it. Except for you of course.

Armed.civilians has been a long standing request. It has been implemented in the nightly version, so next time Yankees updates it might get in. I'm hoping we can see those big muon looking mutants punch a few heads when it comes about :D

Wait! What? This has come to pass? Holy shit... I thought I'd be in the ground by then.

Could you kindly point me at it so I can take a good look at it?? I am silly excited for no reason.

thanks!!!

I've heard this topic might be at the end of its life, but I have another suggestion that just fits best here:  A hotkey that would turn off the flight module for the selected unit, drops them to the ground really fast.  Should take some TUs and maybe give stun damage base on fall distance, though that's a slippery slope.  If we get a temporary flight spell, as the voodoo topic is suggesting, I'd request that it not be able to be canceled in this manner. Magical levitation has its risks.

Hello everyone!
First of all: many thanks Dioxine for such great mod and Meridian for his really important addings.

My 2 cents for topic (hope this is NOT wrong topic for this): it makes sense to sell credit chips for a lower price. 50%, maybe. Because who needs buy currency from crime organization for its "nominal" price? Also 50% because for higher rate exists another corruption schemes for making money from air (for more realism, in other words). And to offset this make new research topic and workshop project - "–°ounterfeit money" but not necessary (because I like Xpiratez for it "constant lack of money mode", makes me to use "Finanses" and "Base maintenance" buttons")

P.S. Sorry for my english  :(

I think you can consider that you use the credit chips to pay for stuff instead of the money in your funds. Having to sell the chips before buying stuff is just the current mechanic because the engine doesn't let you give actual money as loot for enemies.

Also, counterfeiting is in. Just keep playing. There's hardly a money making crime you can't do in this mod.

Hey Dioxine, what about taking assassination contracts? That's one that isn't there yet.

From a slightly different perspective, you need to convert the credits into an easier to use currency, as an example, converting hundred dollar bills into ones, fives, tens, twenties, whatever.  Assuming your gals are smart enough, it shouldn't be hard to get full price for the credits, it's just a matter of going to a bank or the equivalent and converting them into more useful types of money, choose well and there shouldn't even be a service fee.

What could be fun is looting different currencies, used by some of the smaller factions or magacorps of the setting, that converting into useful cash does require dealing with conversion costs. Like the NCR dollar to bottlecap, from Fallout.  It might even be possible to make the exchange rates fluctuate, allowing you to try to wait for a profit, though probably that's far more work than anyone really wants to do.

Meh unless business models are part of your gameplay just leave wealth as wealth. New Vegas even did this with multiple currencies because the conversion was fixed. It was all just fluffyness along the lines of gems, Electrum, and platinum in DnD. At the end of the day still generic wealth as far as the player is concerned.
