Yeah, and I am not aware of any plans involving them.

No problem. The best would be to balance the available content for now instead of loading more tools in it.

Trying to figure out what the animatrons are.  Do I know them in Area 51 as phasers?

No, they are just planned entities for the X-PirateZ universe.  Just added flavor for now.

Just put them in the gal's inventory, they start working in the enemy turn after you put them in your inventory.

Is there a release date for the next patch?
I'm bored playing the re'boot'ed titles and xenonauts and consider to just return to this mod and try harder to be a worthy valkyrie/pirat/swabbie.

In a few days, maybe. We'll see.

A few days?  I better wrap up my game soon, then.

Deep ones are deep ones. Giving that name to something completely different in TFTD was yet another TFTD idiocy.

So if the TFTD deep ones (as in the terror units where you need a live one for important research) were to be added to this mod, what would they be called?

Considering what they are (humans remade into combat servitors), probably Biodrones, or something? :)

But then what would that make the original biodrones? :x

I hope there are more lasgun drops - I have like 150+ gauss weapons and maybe 300+ gauss ammo but only 9 lasguns and about 20 adv lasgun clips

I probably will unlock gauss weapons before I can get my hands on strong laser weapons.

It's kind of like low-tech musket/cannon weapons that becomes obsolete before research is done because you get far better conventional weapon drops early game. Except the tech-lag last for like 4 months.


I've been trying to get the euro-lasguns but research seems to be very out of the way, luck driven and unreliable. Good Las weapons feel like vapourware until after superior gauss becomes unlocked.

Good question! In my mod I settled on a term Janissary, because of what they are: humans enslaved and enlisted in the alien army. I'm not overly proud of this name though, I think it can be improved.

Solar, hello, I have already answered this question.

Laser weapons depend on the type of mission and enemy ship. If you grind supply ships all the time, you will get gauss etc.
