[MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing 99J6 : Update
« Reply #48 on: September 01, 2018, 02:12:41 am »
Major changes include requirement for 100 space on endgame armors!  (Get those Printers and Factories up, folks!)

99J6:  Updated end armor recipes:  Harbinger, Annihilator, Jugulator, and Testudo. Increases in time costs for Tac Vest and Tac Armors have cascade effects through multiple armors.

Hello, i just have a short question. I have now updated mid-campaign to J6 and noticed that Harbinger doesn't need any power armor parts, which seems odd to me. Is this intended or is there something wrong in my savegame?

intended, the main mod migrated a bunch of late game armor behind a new tech the lets you build power armor parts, as such to reduce micro alot of late game armor no longer requires them, but have much increased workshop project space.

so what's the point, you can build power armor parts... but no longer need them for power armor?
edit: k i see, you need them for early power armor only

Nope, you are correct.  I asked Dioxine about it, and it now requires a Power Armor Manufacturing Tech.  In his mind, this eliminated the need for power armor parts, so most of those armor recipes have removed that.

So, how will be end-games (power) armors wshould be manufactured? ?
withouth recipes, / without (power armors) PARTS? ?

eh, top-tier power armours would have be assembled, from parts, and by recipes ~ it just look and feel right, more "industrialish"

Reminds me the moment when I produced 300 or 400 power armor parts in J7, and then realised that the Harbinger no longer requires them. The prev experience - J5.
Subjectively, the moment when you get Jaggernaut armor technology is quite close to the Harbinger, just 8-12 (i guess?) hours of the gameplay, making Juggernaut's potential almost undisclosed in the battles. That's sad.

The moment of aquiring Power Armor technology is a sacred moment in the gameplay experience. Juggernaut->Harbinger gap might have been way wider. And Harbinger PA might have been a way costier. It's easy to equip a whole rota (120-150 ppl) even in the Ironman&Hard mode.

Just a suggestion: the Dragonfly is still the *Advanced Hover Suit, so maybe change the name of the recipe to bring it in line?

If you use the Unified Uniform Production Names Mod, that will be addressed, iirc.

The regular dragonfly is fine, it is just the *one from your mod. I was confused when I only had one entry after looking for "dragon".
