The best PC game ever made just got better, ?'s

Postby attilio » Sun Dec 30, 2007 9:35 am

Hello!

I would like to thank whomever developed Privateer remake; it's everything the original was plus everything I could ever have imagined I would want in it for the last 15 years! Wow, the graphics are great, the gameplay is better, and the bases more personalized etc.

After only 2 days, I already have my Tarsus all equipped to kill any talon with a nice ion cannon with the stabilizer as well as a straight shooting tachyon cannon (Thank you perry naval base!) and over 200k credits. The physics are far better, the shooting much better, it's just a better game. Wow!

I have a few questions though.

1. Why do the Kilrathi like me so for having killed 41 pirates and 5 retros?
I have found that for me the safest quadrant is Clarke because at times the Kilrathi and confeds are simultaneously killing pirates for me. I can pretty much cruise impune anywhere and I always have a friendly or three to help with even the most difficult combat missions (I take care not to go after Kats and Hunters, of course). Is this display of love for me a glitch?

2. What's better, Dumbfires or Torpedoes? I read that DF's have higher damage value, but Torps bypass the shields. Can you get the stabilizer with the DF missles?

3. I read about a cloak? Is there one and how do you get it?

Thanks again folks!

Welcome attilio.
Why do the Kilrathi like me so for having killed 41 pirates and 5 retros?
The Kilrathi like you for every human you kill, except of Retros, which you will find out later in the game why.
Is this display of love for me a glitch?
It's intentional. As a privateer, your "records" are being stored and your relations with other factions change, mostly by killing the friends, members or foes of factions. Killing pirates makes confeds and militia happy, Kilrathi also.
What's better, Dumbfires or Torpedoes? I read that DF's have higher damage value, but Torps bypass the shields.
That's true, though PU will take out the phase damage of torpedos so you're not able to kill the drone too soon.
Can you get the stabilizer with the DF missles?
What's a stabilizer?
I read about a cloak? Is there one and how do you get it?
The cloak has been taken out in 1.2, and we had many discussions about if it shall come back or not. We've agreed that it is not canon, though PU features a milspec ship which has one. But the cloak as a piece of equipment you can mount on any ship doesn't exist any more, though it's easy to hack it back in-game.

Really i don't think that phase damage should be taken out, just lock it til after the drone is dead.

But back to topic. DF's are better fighting Scouts and Fighters and really any small ships. Torps are better fight cap ships.
