What do you use for a tanking ship?  I remember trying to use a CRAB before and even if it managed to catch up to the bomber I was trying to shoot down at the time, the bomber kept outrunning the crab and started shooting at the other ships I had launching Avalanches.

Yeah, big ass bombers and silver towers are too damn fast to proper tail and fight with the tank-class ships.

That's why the gravity-beam was invented. To slow those fuckers down so they can't outrun again. It's only a matter of quantity this late in the game.
Missles do big damage but the limited payload can be outshined by the damage potencial of heavy-weapons or the best light-weapons (plasma spitters and/or craft lascannons).

You need to research "unlocking gauss weapons", which is late game tech that needs computer core.

The dojo rolls a chance to train stats every day a hand is queued up for training (the dojo cannot train stats higher than the stated maximum).
Over a certain ammount of time the dojo can dojo-max out everyone set up inside the facility.
You can still use dojo-units as usual (and if you set the option for 'training while wounded') even wounded hands can still be trained.

The dojo cannot train someone above the maximum stat-score hardcoded by it's type. (e. g. a "Lokk'nar" can never have more than 30 strength, unless rolled lucky during battle-scape)

Can you point to where in the mod files the stat limits are coded?  I was looking at the wiki the other day at soldier types and having a hard time understanding their notation.  I'm still trying to understand what role Freaks play.

Freaks can field incredible high voodoo strength if rolled lucky.
V.Skill is still limited to 40.

Freaks also have more strength, increasing their use as melee brawlers.

Does each Freak has the same max stat cap? Or each Freak is uniqe and can roll random max stat?

Max stat caps are the same for all Freaks, but sometimes their initial stat can be higher than their theoretical cap, making them forever superubers (but no further advancement is possible).

Is there really no other way to get synthmuscle mesh?  There's no way to buy or make it, and you just have to keep fighting megapol and mercenaries for it?

There is no other way currently.

We got the gift of having megapol goons willingly handing over thier skins where mercs are far more tougher to deal with.
Those flying pigs and monkeys are free synthmuscle mesh once you've some decent piercing protection and ways of stunning them.

Apart from needing 400 tokens each from your current customers as well as Persuasion and Camouflage, you also need to find another bounty customer.  Let's just say that they're somewhere on the magical path of Voodoo.

So for me the case is about "another bounty customer". Thanks.
