Mercs are notoriously easy to MC, too, meaning you can take them on before you even get plasteel munitions, and with minimal exposure to their reaction fire, which is damn accurate. Having a merc reaction fire a mininuke into your ship isn't fun.
Once you get yourself a 70 skill, 70 power bugeye, you can MC pretty much anyone who isn't specially resistant to voodoo by giving them a dose or two of panic beforehand. Don't even think about MCing exalts, provosts, reverends, most reticulans, star gods, etc, though.

You're prob thinking of *scalemail, which only needs chitin plates, chainmail uses superconductive rings, and you can only get it after having researched warrior armor and scalemail, me thinks.

Prereq for research, not for production, to clear that up.

Hello all,

It's been few versions since I fired up X-Piratez, and I wanted to know the status of the codexes and what they currently give you long-term. I've read up on the wiki, but I know it doesn't mention anything about any of the other late-game goodies like codex tank types and such. Does anyone have a write up of any of those things? I'm thinking of going Red, but can certainly be convinced to try something else for the right amount of sweet, sweet  swag! Please let me know if you know!

Not much has changed over all in the codexs recently, amazon got restricted to one codex, Dragon rocket is only red now, and a few other similar minor shifts. But the major stuff is all the same, codex STC craft, final tier voodoo armor, ect

The Fortuna goes above and below. I like a ship that can do both.
