Captured a landed "Very Large"(I haven't completed enough research to identify types) ship. Filled with Mutons. Ended up with several extra million just from selling the excess stuff.

For some reason, there's a ton of ships, both small and large landing on Montreal, and I just captured a scout ship landed at Chicago(my HQ is near D.C.) - landed directly on top of the city marker. Are they building a base?

Good thing it's 92HP I have, then. I've found that it's helpful to allow the Karma damage to finish before healing, and sometimes it's better to just attack(since attacking is required to progress the battle) if you've still got plenty of Karma'd HP left.
I still haven't won that fight, but to be fair I didn't really want to.

You did murder everything up to that point to get the fight though.

Yes, but until you defeat Sans, it is still reversible.

That sucks. Am I screwed even though all the ships are still landed there?


EDIT: Took a few attempts but I beat that thing they kept in the basement that in all honesty probably should have been left the hell alone. Oh crap what have I done?

Just raided an EXALT outpost and won the mission in three turns with only some wounds. I started the mission with sight on their stored missiles, so on the second turn I got everyone to throw grenades at it, and it destroyed the entire base before anyone had the chance to leave. The third turn was spent patching up two dudes that were a little too close to the blast and searching for the last survivor who surrendered as soon as I found him.

Not sure if dying of old age is an honor or a shame for weaponmasters. On the one hand, it means they never got the opportunity to die in glorious battle. On the other hand, it means nothing could beat them in glorious battle.

October 2004, 47 years after shooting down the Soviet Union's Sputnik satellite, Tropico finalizes its research efforts to become the world's most technologically advanced(if governmentally backwards) nation on the planet. The economy may be completely and utterly shagged with the rush program of several research labs and observatories that was started in January-February 2004, though.

At least the peasants aren't starving anymore, and the rebels largely suppressed. Even managed to fight off a US invasion. It was supposed to be a mock war. Where they mocked us by trying to turn our military and civilians into a meaty pulp. Except they lost.

I bought Heat Signature yesterday, and after a bit of playing, got a mission that required me to rescue someone without harming anyone. That isn't generally how I play the game (for like 3 hours prior), but I've got a pile of various rechargeable teleporters.

One guard thought he saw someone, but a extreme range visitor (teleports you somewhere of your choice far away for 2 seconds, then you go back) meant there was nobody there while he looked. Then I re-appeared right behind him, and walked out with my prize. That, and the intro were the most Gunpoint this game has felt so far, but it's getting there. I want to go re-try the challenge with only a swapper (teleporter that trades places with someone) and a short blade.

Also, after clearing a bit over half of the ship in my personal (final, unless you feel like keeping going) mission to avenge my father, I mis-judged the distance to a guard, and an alarm was sounded. My quarry ran to the ship teleporters to escape, and I just shrugged. I knew those teleporters had "accidentally got adjusted" to just space people. I didn't get to stab him up close, but he didn't get to breathe, so good enough.

Figured out how to build an automated refinery system - a train collects materials from various deposits, and drops it all off at a central refinery. I don't have manufacturers built yet to deal with the processed resources, and I may have gone a bit overboard with coal production in part due to not knowing how much the train itself would use for fuel. But at least the power plant should be well supplied.

EDIT: Won the story-required Chocobo Race on the first try. I don't think I've ever done that. The grey and red Chocobos tried to sprint from behind me at the end of the race, except I still had at least 2/3rds of my stamina left so I powered ahead myself.

Best friend and I decided to try Twich mode legend. Righteous Stand. We ended up doing a mad dash through the level as a Troll, Stormfiend, Rat Ogre and Chaos Spawn chased us. In the end we had to keep kiting like madmen around the statue of Sigmar until it took its sweet time and exploded. Didn't kill the damn troll, but we didn't stick around once the exit activated.

On the plus side, I got the Heldenhammer Time (have Sigmar kill a bunch of Chaos Warriors in this event) challenge done.

Built a destroyer. While not entirely finished, it's usable. Changed the method of designing the hulls; instead of creating a curved hull using 1m triangle corners and inverted triangle corners, I made a much more simple >-shaped bow using wedges at the front, and went for a U-shaped flat bottom instead of a V-shape. The rear deck sticks out from the lower hull over the water, making room for the propellers and rudder beneath.

Top speed is around 13.7m/s(26.6 knots). Slower than what I wanted, but it's kept that top speed throughout the entire construction process while the engines were one of the first things installed, and it doesn't backflip. Propulsion is provided by two 1m steam propellers turned by 8 pistons each, fired by two boilers each capable of burning 8.5mt per second(it only needs about 2/3rd's that for max speed).

Current armament is a pair of depth charge launchers that I might remove since they do too little damage and have a tendency to attack the ship(despite an IFF module and safety fuse), and 4 179mm x 1709mm cannons firing APHE - they're iffy at penetrating armor at the moment though. The cannons achieve a pretty high rate of fire for its caliber, but accuracy is quite bad for some reason.

Combat tested against an Onyx Watch Bastion, manually controlled, but player's repair tentacles disabled. As mentioned, the cannons had trouble piercing armor, but enough hits eventually ripped it off. Before that, the Bastion got a lucky(very lucky) hit that tore off the rudder completely, forcing me to run while placing down some repair bots. Another lucky hit tore off both rear turrets at once - not sure how, but it might have hit the firing piece of one, causing a chain of ammo cookoffs that killed the other turret. Came back after the repair bots (slowly) got it back into shape, hammered the Bastion's cannons, and eventually gutted the entire AI core with constant pounding.

After wandering the level for 3.5 hours, I've found the boss and defeated it on a second try!

I got four kills in quick succession and was Kill Leader for like two seconds. It was a set of extremely lucky breaks, such as finding level 4 armor ten feet away from where I landed and grabbing a weapon mere milliseconds before another player reached it (they grabbed the ammo first.) Proceed to me going 1v3 against an enemy squad and almost winning. Apparently, the key to popping off in this game is to get a shotgun early, get close, and not be afraid.

To be clear, we still got wiped less than five minutes into the match. But it was awesome while it lasted.

Finally managed to kill a Blade Breaker Superdreadnought. It took two heavy capital ships that, ordinarily, could be used to clear entire orbital defense fleets on their lonesome, but we made it out with limited hull damage and no casualties.

It was all worth it, because we got... Wait, what? There's seriously no reward for doing this? What if I clear out the other two superdreadnoughts in orbit?

No?

Balls.
