I beg to disagree. For whatever reason, in my mid-game campaign I'm lacking a ton of them (or maybe it's just me and my desire to equip everybody with night-vision-capable armor suits), so I have to resort to disassembling Slave AIs into Optronic parts, and then assemble those Optronic Parts into Integrated Devices.

I needed to research the right things first (not a big problem since I'm mid-game and I covered that research already), and it takes a substantial amount of workshop time... but it gets the job done.

The RNG can be a jerk sometimes.  My current run I have way more integrated devices than I know what to do with due to capturing a ton of academy types and robbing/enslaving them.  I'm pretty sure that if you just shoot them you don't get squat (other than their inventory).

Here's a list of who drops what:

Purebloods - Personal Database
Ninja Gals and some Raiders - Rare Earth Elements
Academy - Integrated Devices
Guild - Durathread Mesh
Church - Force Circuitry
Sectoids - Engineered Biomatter
Power Armor enemies - Power Armor Parts
Mercenaries and Megapol - Synthmuscle Mesh
Ethereals - Star God Robe

You usually get at least one of those per dead enemy (unless the corpse is lost either via overkill or something exploding the corpse away), and of course you get that plus more when capturing them and then dealing with them (robbery, slavery, interrogation).

Could someone please give me a short summary, what is gained by the different codexes?

For spoilers on what each codex does, see https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Tiny_Drill_(Piratez) . You've been warned about the spoilers.

Doesn't this make [integrated devices] abundant? Actually unlimited.

Yeah, since at mid-game I have plenty of Slave AIs to disassemble/reassemble and I can buy more from the black market. It's just a bit of a hassle because it adds more inventory micromanagement. Maybe LytaRyta (who asked about how to get integrated devices) hasn't done the research needed for that (yet).

Sorry, but the link seems broken. It doesn`t lead to an active page.

Yeah, sorry, seems that bbcode messed up the link. This should work better, though: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Tiny_Drill_(Piratez)

Strange: In my new campaign there are no enemy hideouts.
Even no secret base missions.

How do shields behave to stun weapons? Do the stun weapons have any influence towards them? What about stun grenades, do they bypass the shield?

Depends on the damage type of the stun weapon, which are explained on the bootypedia pages for type one and type two shields.

Stun grenades ignore shields.

Look at the tech tree viewer to see who can give it to you for free. Other than that: live poisonous animals.

As well as the advice above:
Animal hunts : scorpions, and maybe spiders.  Can also be found as random loot at Blood Rituals, and sometimes Bandit Caves.

Guys.
Is there a mod or solution to starting without all these ghost and repentia lasses?
How to start with six gals?
I almost always get ghosts and some repentia chicks(the one that can not wear pirate outfits) and it kind of feel wrong.
