It's not an auxiliary unit, it's a normal armour.

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

Hm I'm not quite sure you can get the research from something else (Longbow Tarnian arrows). At least I have not been able to find them anywhere.

My save says:
---difficulty: 1end: 0monthsPassed:   etc.
So, I suppose that I am NOT playing at the easiest one. That'd be zero. Like: 0. Right?

The offline pedia packaged with the mod will list the modifier, thou you need a cheat sheet for types. I think its also listed in the Analysis for each item.

 

..and what are all those types of soldiers ?
snip
The classes for playable units are:
Lunatics(starter 6, and rescues from missions like red villa)
Hands(Warriors and vets are also hand class just better starter stats)
Freaks
Weird Gals
Repentia
Ghost
Slave soldiers
Heroes(rare slave solider variant with freak like overcaped starter stats)
Peasants
Loknarrs
Gnomes
Parrots
Dogs(and the named variant that can get exp)
Hellhounds(and the named variant that can get exp)
Roboparrot
Tamed werewolf
Tamed reaper(and its evolved version)

Anything else like AC and tanks are armors and not self contained units.

How do you know if you're doing damage to shields? And what are the best weapons for getting through them?

TYVM, Scorch.

So, if I edit difficulty: 1end: to
difficulty: 2end:
or
difficulty: 3end:
I will see a f*ckton of enemies more, I suppose?

No switching to extremes (lowest and hardest) as you say. I just need more challenge. My gals are SPECOPS now and they say: "WANT-MEAT! (FE)MALE MEAT!"

So, if I give them diff 3, they'll be happy, will use more bandages and more ammo, but the game will stay stable, right?
If so, I will backup my saves, as usual and give them the Battle of Angora 1420.
Hmmm... ST else to backup?

Alex, I don't know what editor you use, but when I look at my save file I see difficulty and end on separate lines like so:

difficulty: 2
end: 0

I didn't check to see what the whitespace character(s) is between 2 and end: (typically carriage return CR and/or line feed LF) but make sure your editor doesn't change it.  Operating systems such as windows use both while other OS's may only use CR or LF.  Some text editors are smart enough to match what a text file uses.  Others blindly do their own thing and worse some will try to fix it for you.

So, if I edit difficulty: 1end: to
difficulty: 2end:
or
difficulty: 3end:

This suggests to me that your text editor isn't smart enough.

Hi, Rubber Cannonball.
I use the ordinary Notepad. My OS is Windows. I mean, when I left click a save in my game, it gets opened in Notepad. The Notepad has all the text in lines like this:

"piratez ver: v. L1A1 OXCE 6.4.2.1 9-Apr-2020"  - "altTacArmor ver: 0.99J13A"---difficulty: 1end: 0monthsPassed: 29graphRegionToggles:

But when I copy paste that line here, it looks like this:
"piratez ver: v. L1A1 OXCE 6.4.2.1 9-Apr-2020"
  - "altTacArmor ver: 0.99J13A"
---
difficulty: 1
end: 0
monthsPassed: 29
graphRegionToggles:

I suppose that it is safe to edit the difficulty?  I mod my STALKER games using the Notepad and have quite an experience in that. My results are always good. BTW, my job is to work with all kinds of texts. But, I never modded anything in my XPiratez, so I ask you ppl.

I have backed up my saves.

Alex, I'm still on windows xp and my save files look normal when opened in windows notepad.  I've never tried to edit them.  I have editted .rul files before with no problem but I used windows wordpad instead of windows notepad.  Notepad will blindly use CR LF when pressing the enter key which I'm not convinced your savefile is using.  Wordpad seems to handle more text files types including displaying LF only text files correctly.  But you are probably better off using something like Notepad++ as it can handle YAML among others as well.

Yea, I just altered the save and made sure it has the exactly same pattern, only the number for difficulty is different. Playing. So far so good.
