    That sounds like a nice turn of events, except for the lost credits. A DBX Gunboat sounds nice. Small, cheap ships that are nonetheless effective in combat can be a boon. Low risk, but high reward...

    Agreed. There's a thread under Engineers Discussion on the forum saying basically the same: the RNG of mat drops needs to go. Its pure frustration and it will drive players away from the game. And...

    Fair point. But with only one roll left and two guns, the +20% damage was more what got me to keep it. The scramble was a nice bonus. And to be fair, I shorted out a Python's thrusters in a combat...

    Well.

    20% bonus damage on each large laser, plus the Scramble Experimental effect on both guns. An additional 10% power and slightly tuned 5A thrusters make a Vulture ridiculous.

    If Far Cry 2 didn't have constantly respawning checkpoints it would be among the greatest games ever made. But God those can be annoying after a time.

    Oh well. It's gonna be forever anyway. I don't chase mats. Can't be bothered. Once in a while I load up Insta to see what I can make and then maybe pull the slot machine handle a time or two.

    Settled on a Culture as my combat ship for now. More forgiving. Hits hard. And a 10% increase to power output helps.
