A thread for little questions
« on: March 05, 2017, 10:26:32 pm »
Every time I have a new gameplay question I'll ask it here instead of making a new thread each time.

Where are nomads found? They were introduced in 0.99F and I don't think I've seen one ingame, 5 game years in. They're not the deep one nomads are they?

Where are shadow orbs found?

How come Humanists and Spartans aren't even allied? They are ideologicaly fairly close, Humanists could use spartan skills and Spartans could use humanist tech.

I would guess it comes down to ideology. Humanists are opposed to mutants, whereas Spartans strike me as super isolationist, so probably opposed to everyone that isn't a Spartan.

Not for me to decide, of course, but I could see the Spartans grudgingly accepting a mutant if they lived up to the Spartan lifestyle well enough.

It might be sensible for them to work together, but even in the real world, that's seldom enough.

Humanists are crazy, and even other pureblood humans think so.  Spartans are merely patriarchal libertarian gun nuts.

As this is a thread for small questions, here's one:

Do landmines that aren't set off get collected after a mission?  I keep meaning to test it, but never get around to it.

What do "WORKER"s do, I.e the ones you get from the "hire" option in the workshop? I'm aware that slaves give you extra storage space, but these seem to be willing volunteers and presumably do something else?

They boost your storage space for a fee.

Mostly it seems to be for those who find slavery distasteful enough to not participate in it.

Hire also converts otherwise non slave able units.

Unexploded explosives indeed are collected after a battle - including mines.

I never noticed any extra space actually appear in the log screen though, is it not counted there?

It's counted, but as negative space instead of increasing the storage cap. Only buildings can increase the cap, so slaves and workers have negative storage size to cancel out the size of regular items.

I found the elusive nomads, but I'm still clueless when it comes to finding shadow orbs.

Anyone got any hints for me where I should be looking?

How does resistance work? the explanation in the bootypedia isn't very good.

Which resistance?  Armor resistance, or the new special items that provide it?
