Does anyone know where to get an EM Jammer? I'm up to the endgame on a gold codex run and have done almost every mission, but the space freighter raid.

You get Shadowtech (the Jammer, Orbs...) as your loot on your missions, so don't NUKE/Plasma a ship too much - always QS before you do. ONE plasma/nuke usually evaporates (a portion of ) the enemy ship's bulkhead (outer wall). Another hit would go INTO the ship, very probably destroying (a part of) the loot inside. I KNOW, it's a great feeling to go Sado on the enemy, but the LOOT is so important for your Research. NUKEM outside of the ship.

It's not an auxiliary unit, it's a normal armour.

An armor, including combat vehicles, is WORN, i.e. someone enters it (would YOU? :) ). An AUX (Cat, Saurus, Dog...) is a living/robotic creature that you kick otta the craft to draw the enemy fire for you. A serious armor could take an AUX slot, though.

No, it cannot.

A new new weapon idea... A PLASMA THROWER! Showers everything with green plasma and kills it.

I need an advice about time efficient way of dealing with Manson Invasion missions. I really can't be asked to bug hunt 9 levels of that gigantic map, but to extract before map is entirely purged means i lose all equipment that was on my ship but not cried by my gals, and that in turn means before embarking on that mission i have to spend half an hour purging ships inventory from equipment i wont need. Entire thing is tedious AF. :'(

It is possible to save a craft's loadout, and it is also possible to remove all equipment from a craft that is not equipped on the crew with a single button.
So save loadout -> purge ship inventory except what the gals are carrying -> do mission -> load the saved  ship inventory.

I don't remember the keys off the top of my head, but it is all in the bootypedia.

Ship/Crew Member/Aux/Tank etc Loadout:F5 for saving, F9 for loading a saved loadout, X for emptying.

X clears everything. But i just checked, the key he needs is ALT-CTRL-X. That clears all equipment from craft that is not currently equipped/worn by gals. I has to be used from the equip screen tho (the one with gal paperdolls), not from the screen where you decide what to load on craft.

Also as I was doing the Manson Invasion one section of the map was inaccessible, without a corridor or a door leading to it. I had to use explosives to open the path. Is that intentional map design or a bug?

Hi everyone, is there a way to move buildings of your hideout? I remember you could do it with ctrl clicking and paying a cost, but now doesn't seem to work.  Thanks

It was removed entirely, your only option nowadays is to save edit and change your buildings xy coordinates.

Dioxine hasn't logged on in over 2 months.  Anyone know if he's ok?
