Suggestions / Officer limit adjusted by skill total
« on: December 09, 2022, 11:39:24 PM »
 Sorry if someone already came up with this.

As I was thinking about Support Doctrine, I realised there is a potential for a middle ground between the skill and the usual state. What if there was a skill that changed the officer limit from the usual personnel count to 'by the total amount of skills'? E. g. instead of 8 officers, up to, say, 32 officers could be recruited, limited by the total amount of skills in the officer pool.

Do you think the idea has a merit? I can imagine it would take a lot of work. If it's worth it, the benefit should be a potential increase in fleet variety beyond the usual anchors+frigate support build type, especially among wolfpack builds.

Bug Reports & Support / Raiding-related bugs in the Elissa Zal questline
« on: September 04, 2022, 08:59:06 AM »
Case 1
After obtaining a randomly generated Ransom Researcher mission from Sebastyen targeting Kanta's Den and subsequently raiding it to extract the researcher, the option to extract Elissa Zal with a raid made me able to carry on with the raid under the same circumstances as the Sebastyen mission (low danger, 10% marine allocation needed).
Case 2
Prior to starting the Elissa Zal questline, I raided Epiphany twice, once for a Sebastyen Recover Artifact mission and once for a bar Extract Agent mission. Later I was unable to select the option to take a shuttle to meet Brother Cotton until after two in-game months, despite going through the full dialogue with the Epiphany portmaster character before. Only the option to extract Loke by raiding was available.

Fan Media & Fiction / Challenge: Describe Your Latest Custom Faction
« on: June 29, 2022, 09:25:11 AM »
Fellow starfarers!

I'm stuck.

I can't wait until the next patch drops, but at the same time, I don't want to "spoil" myself with another run. To kill the time before we get there, I devised a challenge for us:

Write a lore-friendly* description of your latest run's faction and the systems it controls, save it as a text file and attach it to your post (or just paste it in the box if you fancy looong posts :). In addition to that, score the previous poster's description on a 10 scale and say something you liked about it. ^^ Feel free to use my style as a template, or create a style of your own!

*alternatively, make it funny, but make sure it's really damn funny or it's the airlock for you >:(
