Hey all!, what is controlling craft interior lightning? Ive recently noticed that on an older game my airbus interior has no light in night missions and in another more recent save, the craft interior has full lights and when i open doors it illuminates out like 10 meters. Is there a hotkey for that? (no i''m not talking about personal lights). Ive attached 2 snaps to see what i mean.

This looks like a case of Magna-Lite in item pile.

I have 3 hangars in my hideout, and had 3 crafts, then i removed one craft to another hideout but when i try to dismantle empty hangar, it still says that "building in use".

Aren't Piratez hangars also stores? So, spring cleaning? :)



Edit: Stores and workshops. Spring cleaning and spring break for the runts!

Several times when my hideout is attacked, girl given Armoured car as armour is  spawned naked instead of deploying as an armoured car unit.
Is it some new rule that you can't use armored cars (and other similar units in assume) in hideout defence?

It's probably the '15% of gals sleep in their undies' mechanic I was made aware of three days ago.

Indeed. Gals are not very disciplined. Assign armored cars to humans, lokks, cats. Way more disciplined than gals.

I'm playing as dumbass captain and he wants to build luxury spa which is quite a huge building. Do i need to build it on any base or only the main base counts?

Building it anywhere is fine. The check the game does for having a specific building only considers if you have one at all, it doesn't care where the building is located. I would recommend building it somewhere that has decent manufacturing capacity since you can use the luxury spa to upgrade courtesans and gladiatrixes into exotic dancers later on, but it's not necessary.

I am amused by the idea of having all of the CBT training facilities scattered across the world and the captain having to constantly fly between different continents to get all of her training done.

Can someone please tell me what's wrong with my ammo mod?

I think the issue is that you haven't declared that your edit is to the items: category in the rulesets. I've put that in and it now works on my end. I've attached it below.

Also, some advice. It's not good practice to copy over the entire entry for an item into a submod if you're only changing part of it. It adds bloat, hurts compatibility and most importantly, makes it harder to remember what exactly you changed.

For some reason the line "FixRadius: 0" does not work, but the other two edits do. Directly editing the line in the ruleset also works.
Demystify me please. Attachment below.

Edit: Added the metadata.

Do enemy craft attacking your base follow the same crash at 50% hp rule of normal craft?  During an interception a ship with 100 HP crashes after taking 50 damage, so would you need only 50 defensive power to stop them, if it hits, or 100?

'FixRadius' is a subfield of 'damageAlter', yours isn't.

No, you need to deplete the whole HP. Do note that any individual shot does 50-150% damage, so evenly matching defence power to enemy hulls won't be reliable.
