Gatling Lasers, from which shipping would i expect to get those? im guessing battleships? having a hard time downing those without more research (which is locked behind gatling laser... i think)

I think bombers and destroyers have them if the parts don't get blown up in the crash landing, otherwise the parts sometimes show up on the larger smuggler ships.

It's funny to load for heavy armor at a pogrom site and step out of the craft only to see this:

Does the Hyperwave Decoder apply to ground missions?

A couple of questions about various armours:

Masochist armour: is the bootypedia lying about blood magic having a chance to increase voodoo str? is it actually possible to gain any xp at all in that outfit btw

Green Lighter: how is the green bong supposed to actually work?

Speaking of sectoweed - where can we get it? Over the course of three game-years,  there have only been two occasions in which I collected sectoweed, and it amounts to only half the requirement of the Green Lighter suit.

sectoweed can be bought at some point. I don't what the relevant tech is though.


I too am curious about the masochist outfit. I have yet to find any of the relevant orbs so i have yet to be able to make one.

You need Reticulan contacts, but I wonder what mission parameters are associated with sectoweed as loot. Clearly I've been able to loot it a couple of times, but I'm not sure what it was about those missions...

To gain experience with a weapon (blood magic), you need to hit an enemy, not a friendly target.

My apologies dioxine, I had tried it a few times with no luck, and combined with allow allow psiStr improvement: no being a forced option, I wondered had that ability been disabled and the bootypedia not updated yet, the comment on the bootypedia lying was intended to be slightly funny but I guess that didn't come across.

I do however restate my question on the green bong how does it work given there is no action for it?

There's a chance for sectoweed to spawn during crackhouse missions, but those are early game missions that eventually disappear.  As for the bong, it should have a use that spawns a smoke cloud.  That cloud restores morale and energy I think, but causes stun.  If you don't have an action then that sounds like a bug.

@EricPhial:
I apologize too, my post was offensive and that's why I have deleted this. So: psi improve it does work, it requires targetting enemies though. It overrides the no psi power training, since it applies xp directly.

Bong is used by simply... firing it, lol :)

Huh must have a glitch in my install or something both in wiki and battle the bong has not firing action.

Ruleset diving gives me a costUse which when replaced with costAimed fixes it

But I hadn't edited that before.  Can you check if such an error is in the master copies please, Dioxine?

Whoops, indeed. I have tested it long ago, must've changed this later... Will be fixed, like you said, it should be costAimed.

Is there a similar problem with the Rangefinder device? In the ruleset it has a "tuCost" line (for 999 TU), and it also doesn't seem to work in missions, giving a warning on insufficient TU.

My own question now, can player characters use healing items on unconscious PC or NPC?

Edit: Answered indirectly in Bug Thread, that unconscious characters are targeted by consumables when the actor is standing on the tile containing the unconscious character.
