How could I replicate it? I'm able to do a bit of basic modding if necessary.

Open up these files: whatever language you are using .yml, and your save file.

Find the string names for tiny drill and menacing hull, then find those names in your save file and edit STR_TINY_WHATEVER_IT_IS_CALLED: 1 to STR_TINY_WHATEVER_IT_IS_CALLED: 4 for both the drill and the hull.

Be warned, more modding may be necessary to make the game not crash, haven't tried it due to the fact that researches will be disabled and available at the same time.

Just save before deciding on the codex and see what is the best timeline.

You will have to edit Piratez.rul. Find instances of "disables:" relating to the codexes and remove it. Basically, you have to re-make the research tree so that one codex choice does not block off others. Having all codexes unlocked will not crash the game or anything, unless you make errors while editing the file. Just don't complain about difficulty or weird interactions that wouldn't be possible if you were limited to 1 codex.

i admit, i had it quite easier, in time (at the time) when i "prepared" these all - four -Codexes..

(need to know, i edited it yet in "time of" some waayyy earlier version of Piratez, (as i mentioned already above), - edition *I, or even earlier - "F", ~~ "H" -

- in time of that older version, it supposedly wasnt, (weren't) mutually criss-cross blocked..

so i easily added in one of my savegame file some ~~2 ~3 more of thoese "colours Codexes
( +1,  ~ 2 of each )

Ppl, how do you make the runts at a base reload a missile weapon on a craft? I think that this happens when you turn off a missile weapon before an air combat and, if it's not fully loaded and is turned off, it won't be fully reloaded. BAH!

Otherwise, this game is GREAT!

If a weapon is not reenabled before the air combat window closes, the only option is to reequip the weapon.

Is there any way to control the direction of the turret on a small tank/vehicle without altering the facing the chassis and not firing?

Right click in a particular direction.

That will turn the whole unit, not just the turret. Hold CTRL while right-clicking.
