So the biggest issue with the forums and searching is the many generic terms. Searching for guides or other things on what vehicle parts do doesn’t help @ all.
So sorry if this has been covered but I couldn’t find it, or any sort of good explanation on where to use some parts.
So I have questions on individual that allow sight/shooting, and doors, some which the wiki doesn’t explain the use for in enough details more than a tag.
I want a side piece for the driver that protects me and yet I can shot through it. I don’t need to open it. If the Zed is on my side I want to be able to blast it while moving. The other driver seat will have an exit. If it has to be a door on both, I can handle that.
- What is a hatch?
- Sliding door? Yes it’s a door but what’s the difference,
- trunk door? I don’t see the point in this
- shutter door? I don’t see the point in this one either.
A roof. Should I use a normal roof panel, or maybe the first layer in a heavy then a normal?
is the middle area really needing heavy? Gun fire and turret is a linear fire, so it has to blow past the outer defenses. Since the game doesn’t do any arc fire from what I can tell. Or does it help verse aoe like flame throwers? I’m trying to preserve some weight if I can.
(I found a near intact APC except someone stop the controls, so I’m re-working it)
So now to switch topics. Mutagens. I have read how they work kinda on the wiki with tree’s. Somehow early on I got an Elf-A tree with the Peledrawhatever that make your skin like bark over time. Busting safes I found a mutagen and decided what the heck I have purifiers and I drank it, and I’ve got the fey eyes.
I’ve heard there are more related things. If you want to spoiler tag it go ahead. I get the idea that you can ‘switch’ tree’s and you can keep taking things, but I don’t want to take 40 characters to experiment with it. Anyone care to do a short summary for me?
This is the longest I’ve lived, I’m into summer. I’m probably going slow, but it took a while to get mechanics and skills up, and learn some other things about the game. I’ve started in a massive town, 100+ building I think. Most is clear, and I’m now gearing up since I found the Mil comp armor I needed for the vehicle, I have weapons, armor, (even power armor and UPS’s with recharging stations), and I’m going to pile into this thing with the goods and go looking for more fun (like a lab etc).
For the other side I’d like something I can see through for the mirror. Actually. I’d love it if could put a hatch in the middle and mount a mirror there, (aka rear bloody view mirror).
It also would be SOOO nice if in game the tags for ‘interior/exterior’ were visible. It’s pretty clear if your working on a car what components go where IRL. I’ve got up to a 20 in mechanics, by now the game character should have a solid idea of what things do since he can hook 3 engines together.
