Newbe questions
« on: July 12, 2018, 07:10:09 pm »
Hi there, how do I recruit pirates in the mod? Buying on the market doesn`t seem possible as far as I see.

I mean the Ubers

--- posts merged. Please no double-post ---

And where can I find ammunition for my guns?
I can buy them, but not the ammunition for it. Do I understand something wrong?

Take for example the flintlock pistol. Can buy it on the black market, but where are the bullets?

You need to do some research before you can recruit. Not much, you won't be stuck with the escaped lunatics and some peasants for long.

I think you can buy ammo for flintlocks with the weapons themselves. The ammo is usually under the first weapon that uses that ammo. So it should be under the pistol itself.
But you shouldn't bother if you don't have to. While they are strong guns, most pistols in the game are better, just use looted weapons. For a lot of them you can buy ammo once you research the gun if you have located (=researched) the sellers.
Visit the local town is the first step.

Sorry, I looked for the pistol clip on the blackmarket, but it wasn`t there. Can`t produce either.

Then I researched the blackmarch pistol, but can`t build or buy it. Strange.

You need the correct market techs. Your gals don't know who sells stuff like that yet or those people don't trust you enough yet. Blackmarch clips are a bit harder to come by than some other pistols. It is not as common as some other ammo.

And I am not sure what Alien is talking about. Even in the lategame you can meet the easy beginner enemies and I am pretty sure you can hit anyone with anything. If you do damage is a completly different question though. If you meet enemies you can't deal with - run away, you are there for the booty, not for extended firefights with superior foes. Pirates usually prefer soft targets.

@Meridian, thx for the pic.

Found the clip: It is UNDER the Musket! (weird)
But by this, where is the Musket-ammo?!

@Rince, so it isn`t enough, that I got the blackmarch pistol researched?

And the Musket-ammo? Wouldn`t it be supposed to be right under the Musket? See the pic.

Ahhh! Of Course. In this mod the ammu can/must be used for different weapons. That I didn`t know!

But again back to the blackmarch pistol. Researching it isn`t enough to buy it?

The same about the Varmint Rifle. Got one in my inverntory, but can`t buy or produce it.

Do I again have to get better relationship with one faction?

@Solarius:
This is meant as a thread for every newbe. If there is someone new with questions, he can use this single thread for beginner-questions.
Not all of us are pros at these games.

Further: Nobody is forced to answer. It is completely free.

1/ Try to use search via quick search context menu (Q-key by default):
Black market > Q-key > type "flintlock" > Profit

2/ With ufopedia you can check ammo type you need (or middle mouse (mouse_4) click on the researched weapon):
Select an item > ANALasys button > Compatible ammo

In Piratez, there are markets you need to research. "Visit local town" is one of them. "Contacts: smugglers" is another. To be able to buy something, you need to research the item and the market that is needed.

You can find out what you need in the bootypaedia by using the "anal" button. There it say "Tech required to buy". In the top right, there is a button to switch to the ammo.

As you can see, you need to research the Blackmarch Pistol as well as Contacts: Merchants to be able to buy it.
