Factory is a big workshop, not a printer.

What he said.  Digging through the tech tree viewer shows that the Factory does *not* provide the Printer function, so it alone won't be able to make anything that specifically requires the Industrial Printer.

Quick question.

Does the stun minilauncher hit the under armor or the front/side/rear armor?

Explosions hit under armor when they are directly under the target or within three tiles (as I recall). Beyond that point they go against whichever side is facing.

How to add my large music collection to recently installed X-Piratez?
The old "musics:"-section from pirates.rul is gone? 
I found a file "en-US.yml", where some soundtracks are listed. How can I add new GMGEO34.. etc musics now?
Also I hope I can simply add GMGEO34.FLAC  now!

en-US.yml is the text strings, probably for the jukebox feature. There's more than one .rul file as far as I know, the music probably got moved to someplace else.

HOW TO CONFIGURE A CUSTOM 700-piece soundtrack SOLVED:

You can configure your hundreds of soundtracks to be randomly selected in the file:
Piratez_Resources.rul

under the section called:

musics:

If missions repeat too much and you get super bored with 1 type of mission always playing the same darned soundtrack, just go into

Piratez_Planet.rul
Piratez_Factions.rul
and add a lot more tracks to missions under their  section called

music:

Problem solved!!

Maybe once.

I think after taking out a lot of them in a turn i managed to make them panic as i did rarely end some missions with them surrendering in the end of the turn if im not mistaken and they cant surrender.

It is a bit odd that they are actually way better soldiers that even Marsec when the lore describes them as rabble. They are no terrible shots either. Why is nobody employing them as scouts/snipers? A trained ratman is eyes of a hawk and nerves of steel would be a valuable asset even to Mercenaries.

Way better soldiers? In what sense?
