What's happening in YOUR randomly generated apocalypse? Part 2!

Power Armor is great if you find a Hauling Frame. If you find Lab Journal - Herrera, you can find the recipe for the Power Armor Interface and Power Armor Interface MKII.

Power Armor will not save you from a Tank Drone’s HEAT rounds if they hit you directly, because those bypass normal damage calculations and insta-kill you, like Landmines. The same might go for C4 at PBR, I’m not sure.

Speaking of which, has anyone found the new Solar Panels CBM yet? I tried crafting a set, but the game deleted it upon re-opening the game, because the craftable CBM is still apparently the old version.


#402

So what’s the use in the Interface CBM if you can run a power armour set on a UPS CBM?


#403

The two interface CBMs are far more efficient than the UPS CBM. They’re easy to craft too, so there’s no excuse not to use them.


#404

What are the numbers here?


#405

Or bring along a shopping cart or wheel barrow.


#406

Unforunately not very helpful if you need to go up or down a level.


#407

For basic Power Armor:
UPS: About 4 power per tile walked
Interface MK1: About 1.3 power per tile walked
Interface MK2: About 0.6 power per tile walked

In other words, DEFINITELY worth getting the MK2 interface if you intend to use it a reasonable amount.
If you get the metabolic interchange CBM you can power yourself with food, so it’s pretty viable if you can find a hauling frame.


#408

You can make a foldable shopping cart which works wonders for going up and down levels.


#409

Still have to haul it all up/down the stairs though… It’s a good solution, but not perfect.


#410

got super irradiated by something, blobs I think? (pkr) it was 60ish and I mutated tentacle arms, meaning I can’t wear the power armour anyway, sucks because I built a UPS and found the helm inside the same vault. The hulk returned with a bunch of friends and started making so much noise zombies just surrounded me from everyside, died from shocker brutes and general rad sickness, rip.


#411

I just learned about locking skills. Been playing for over a year and still learning things…


#412

You can use a hairpin as a lockpick also and you can wear it without adding any encumbrance and it has the same a lockpick value as an improvised lock pick. The fancy hairpin can also be used but it is not as good as the regular one.


#413

Well good to know. But it still kinda sucks that you you can only wear 2 at a time.


#414

Setting out to build my first “Rolling Fortress”. Starting with a Light Tank that has all four engines intact. Hoping that’s enough…


#415

I just need 1 more Jabberwock Skull and then I’ll be able to build an Altar and truly ascend to Godhood.


#416

When did jabberwock skulls become a thing?


#417

From the Ascension Modpack. They’re one of the items needed to build the Altar at the endgame. You need two of them, actually.

Aaaaand I just realized I don’t have the Ant Queen egg. Crap, need to grab that too.


#418

Somehow lost a half full 200L tank half full of ammonia… :frowning:
On a brighter note I meleed three hulks. :slight_smile:


#419

Well, a while ago while stripping down a Luxury RV, I came across an NPC. She was fairly unassuming, friendly and I thought it’d be nice to have someone else join me along. I checked her stats and saw she was not only far-sighted, but also frail and had rather low intelligence despite having a rather respectable first aid stat. So I went and found her a pair of reading glasses and a couple of days later she saved me from a Zombie Hulk which knocked me into a wall and caused half the building I was in to collapse on me.

So yeah, I’m glad I brought her along.


#420

I just got a pet Skitterbot!

Any idea what I should name him?
