What is the ranged dodge formula? Trying to compare hit rates/dptu for rippers/chainsaws/autoaxes vs other melee weapons.

I doubt a ranged attack can be dodged.
It either hits or misses. No matrix dodge here.

She's talking about CQC dodge, you silly.

Bootypedia states the accuracy of ranged weapons in melee is basically (reactions/2 + melee/2) * accuracyCloseQuarters - evasion, where accuracyCloseQuarters is on average 85%? It's probably default value, but I don't really know.

Are more varied (in both content and difficulty) sea missions planed to future releases?

So are we sure that the fat guys are actually human?  Because they look quite a bit like goblin Buddhas to me

Being "actually human" is rather fuzzy in the setting and depends more on your wallet than your genes.

Yeah. Save for the obvious beastmen and lamias (not counting any cosmetic surgery done to them), a mutant could get away with living as a "pure blood" if they have the influence, cash and determination to step on and abandon their mutant peers at the chance of living a life of luxury. It's why the mutant alliance wants you to kill some of your fellow mutants for betraying their own people every now and then.

Is there a way to go into the save and spawn certain types of missions?
I'm trying to spawn a bomber so I can find an implosion ball launcher.

Sounds like someone is gated in research to unlock the final tier.
The bomber is not the only ship that has a chance to have an impl. bomb launcher.
The biggest ship (battleship I guess) has a garanteed chance to drop a launcher part.

Yeah at this point I'm just trying to get the research going again. Plus I was going to try to spawn a few different mission types if possible. I haven't seen a base in like 3 in game years.

What exactly do I need to start building Syns? I can make Slave Robots, but that doesn't seem to be enough, unless I am missing something.

Welcome to the forums!  You can't just start building Syns, you have to find them, just like with the shipwrecked/castaway gals, only on a special mission.

If you already have the damaged Syn, then you're going to need a couple School Graduation-tier researches.

Oh, so I need a treasure from a special mission. Got it! Guess it's time to cross my fingers and hope I find the right one!

To clarify the "special mission" in question is an orbital mission so space capability is needed.

Orbital mission, or Zero-G mission? I have a research topic available that mentions Zero-G missions. Also, I guess I'm gonna need space suits to deck my crews, yes?
