The caps in question can be found in piratez.rul, search for"trainingstatcaps". Here's the slave soldier block.

      tu: 66
      stamina: 85
      health: 40
      firing: 85
      throwing: 66
      strength: 40
      psiSkill: 65
      melee: 66

peasants are identical, bugeyes have lower cap for health and strength, loks have higher stamina and reduced health and strength. But i will leave you to find all the exact numbers.

Perfekt, thanks. I figured it was listed SOMEWHERE, was looking through the savegame for the info, since i could see the current stats there :)

(so work has kept me from playing with the frequency I wished)

I installed the recent version of Piratez into my current campaign. I noticed that an enemy base (Mercs, BTW) now has a small radar-like circle around it.
What is the meaning of said circle?

Bases are now protected by Hunter Killers, so that they can shot down your transport vessel. You have to either arm up, or send interceptor first.

That explains why my airvan randomly got shot down on the way to a completely different mission. Wish I knew beforehand that my crew would return to base, I thought they were just goners.

Gold Codex
Thanks!
Hey, can we really integrate the new version into ours? I got the March 2019 one. Old saves really work? Whete from do we download?

Where you always download? The link is in the 1st post in the main thread, the one that changes its name according to the current version.

After installing as usual just copy your save and, if you want to (I know I do) your options.cfg.

I always update to the current version.

Is there some way of boosting infamy in the early game that I'm missing? I've lost one campaign last version and may be about to lose another one on this version to the "two consecutive months of negative infamy" fail condition, despite doing nearly every mission, taking few casualties, doing research and conducting interrogations etc. Some months I do fine and get 2500+ infamy and others for no reason I can tell it's -100. In my last campaign it would be randomly -1000. Is there something I'm doing that's killing my campaign? Does slavery or pimpcraft secretly tank your infamy?

Are you going to mutant pogroms? Mutant pogroms are xpiratez's terror missions, so if you don't at least show up, you'll take a significant infamy hit. Also, knocking government ships out of the sky and raiding them after tends to make your infamy tank as well, since they're the people who pay you protection money, and its not like you absolutely can't do it, just don't do it often.
Slavery and pimpcraft have nothing to do with infamy, AFAIK.
Killing/kidnapping civilians during missions is also bad, and I *think* not helping the lok'narrs also tanks your infamy, since they're your only real ally, lore wise.

Some research options can tank your infamy too, but those are rare and far between.

EDIT: There's also two other things that I know can lower your infamy, those being that one "strange signal" space mission, which gives you an infamy hit if you don't deal with it, and secret bases, which give you a monthly hit if you don't deal with them, me thinks.

Some enemy missions can lower your infamy, especially the ressource one with the ore ship because they stay on the map for a very long time.

Thanks all, I think I must just be getting really unlucky with the enemy missions that are spawning. And I have dodged some pogroms here and there but I thought that didn't matter under you officially allied with the Mutants. Should you still show up, land and take-off even if you're not ready for a fight?
