Solar Arrays?
Can you offer a screenshot? I suggest you mean ratman-raidparties (those go 100speed and die in one hit). Those spawn like 6-10 little red dots searching for your hideout(s) to perform a crackdown.

To find the last star god novice you need patience. There're hard to see due to camo. If you have someone with SPOT in your team, use him/her to increase your chance of finding him.
You still need to be careful tho since his ghostbeam bypasses all armor and is extremly precise for a snapshot.

They do really look like solar arrays :). Yes, they are ratmen looking for your base.

Is there a way to destroy those Ratmen search parties?  I tried attacking one once but just ended up wasting a few hundred cannon rounds and doing no damage.

Yeah they can be shot down.  You might just have a very inaccurate cannon and a pilot with bad aim stats.

Keep shooting until your interceptor stops missing every shot. Ratmen foot patrols are just hard to hit sometimes.

OK, I asked this already but I am sorry for being stupid. How does one use Master's Cane? I have it researched and acquired from some human mage that was on a joy ride in civil ship. When I put it in hand of my Gal in novice outfit I can't use it at all. Is there a specific outfit it only works with or what am I missing? (Haven't even researched Back to school, because when I was about to do the aliance research, the update came and now I need the tokens to research and not getting those missions.)
So... am I trying to use it in wrong way or am I supposed to wait for some other research?

Master's Cane and a number of other voodoo items require voodoo training to use.

Voodoo training is associated with the voodoo school building. Place a gal in voodoo training just like you do with normal training with a dojo or luxury spa. It is a separate window so make sure you have the right one. Once the gal has been in training for a sufficient time you will be able to see the gals voodoo stats, at that point they are "trained" and can use the previously locked items.

Behind the curtain what's happening is that Dioxine tied certain items being usable to the flag on psi power being unmasked from vanilla engine.

A science thing then, thanks.

Or throw a gal in seductress armor. If she can actually stun something that should reveal her voodoo strength

Well No seductress outfit... just wench and novice. As I mentioned, due to new update I can't research the alliance and back to school nor library so...

Used the rod of bliss and wand of firebolts, wand of rending and wand of airlesness several times, no go.

What is a good strategy to deal with Zombies? I´m in January 2602, with chainmail, and some tech blades and cannons, and even with all that, zombie ground is something I fear. Just now I´m just losing one veteran gal per fight, but before.... well... Zombies are harsh.

So, my questions are:

What is a good strategy to deal with zombie before and after chainmail?.

Auto fire weapons and a craft with a roof / grab harnesses

Shotguns are pretty good. Zombies aside from the military ones are nearly unarmored.
