I will also point out that the event chain will not fire on lowest difficulty. You can still win the campaign but lots of options are blocked off.

I'm playing on middle difficulty. Was just wondering since I did switch from L1 to L2 this campaign and wasn't sure if that screwed up anything.

Do Necropirates stop spawning at some point in the game? I need one for the school graduation project but can't seem to find any.

Either that, or the chance gets really low for their missions to fire. But you can get the research from other sources, iirc.

As far as I can tell from the church, usually interrogating the priest, matron and warmaiden, not sure if there are other sources

Matrons and Warmaidens don't give you force circuitry, they might give you the research but not the actual item. They can be obtained off priests and any church unit that has the glowing shields.

I suppose that changing the difficulty level of an ongoing game would be harmful?

Yes, i did it some time and saw that might cause strange behavior, along as using a newer openxcom ectended executable, i recommend to not change/upgrade everything, only saves are fine  :)

Changing difficulty is usually okay to do thou weird things may happen if you change from/to minimum or maximum. The ends of the spectrum have several special rules.

I uually switch to and from "davy jones" and "blackbeard", probably the exec upgrade might have major effetcs, eg weapons not loaded in battlescape and so on

Hey just wanted to ask a question, i have been trying to load an armoured car on to a Pidgeon vessel for the last hour and i can't find a way to do it. I must be missing something, it says 1 aux, 9 crew. Basing it on normal Xcom rules this would be 5 soldiers 1 tank.

Able to fence it off fine it appears as "Armoured Car *25mm AC" but it won't on the equipment page.
