supply ship does not always appear right away, and unless you have the base under radar coverage the ship can land and do its thing without ever being seen.

One question about the voodoo rod.
I`ve researched it and the game tells me, I should be able to produce it. But I couldn`t find it in the list.
Could someone look into my save, where it is?

You're lacking a facility. In the workshop screen, use the left drop-down menu to select "Facilities missing". Some stuff requires a building in the base to be manufactured (e.g. alcohol needs a Still).

In your particular case, you cannot manufacture a Rod of Hellfire if you don't have a Summoning Circle in your base.

@Ivansanchez:
I was looking for the normal Voodoo Rod. According to the techtree no special building is necessary. So I should be able to build it.

May have changed with the latest version, but I think you do not get voodoo rods independent of armor.

I checked it. No armour should be necessary.

Anyone else an idea, why the voodoo rod is not accessible?

This is an artifact of how items must be coded. A pedia entry even with the Anal tab will not tell you what is required to build one, only buy. In this case it is neither buy-able or build-able. It comes as part of the witch outfit only.

That said Dioxine did leave the hook for purchase in the tech tree coded but disabled. As such "Voodoo Rod " is still visible in the tech viewer.

Ok, so the game told me wrong, when saying I could build it.  :o
I remember clearly, it happend so.

I must apologize. Just read in the pedia of the rod, that a certain dress is necessary. What is the correct name of the dress for the tech tree?

Excuse me, legion. I just didn`t understand, you were already using the correct syntax.

One question about the heavy freighter of the guild. There is no guild master on board. Is there another ship that holds a master?
Thought, the biggest ship would have one.

Cruisers and battleships have GMs, freighter is just that even if its a bigger naster one. You dont see the President/Prime minister on a container ship do you? But they do visit warships.

Thanks for the hint. Is taken down to my notes. I have a 11 sides word document now with all the hints of you guys :-)

About the witch outfit: I have now researched it:
Where do I get from the:
- monster teeth and eye
- spider silk?
All other ingredient I already got.

There are some missions that you can research and unlock that spawn various creatures you can hunt for those parts.  Spider silk unsurprisingly comes from the spider hunt, the teeth and eyes can come from a few different hunts.  If you've been doing those hunts then you might have to research the corpses to use the extract manufacturing option in the workshop.

Monster teeth and eye and spider silk can also be (randomly) found on beastmen altars. In the the werewolf mission.
I also remember getting spider silk fom bandit caves bounty hunt mission.
