Default Questions

It has been advertised that there is no limit on the level of officers. It seems that skill levels can be maxed out. What happens after my 6 skills for officers are maxed out and I promote them? Is there any benefit?

Do officers I find on planets start with more than 1 skill? What about officers I hire in later sectors?


How do I reduce the damage done from monsters I get in melee with? Or, would I just need to have high health and medic to heal them over time?

Does a higher DR on my space suit reduce the duration of burning, etc. or damage from monsters?

How do I get enough oxygen to explore caves? I remember in one of my games I had an oxygen replenisher, but even with that it isn't enough. (I assume this is an item the away team carries, and not my ship.) My highest sector is 7 so far.

Thanks.

Rob

1 more question:

In order to get the planet to respawn monsters, must I kill ALL monsters including friendlies? If so, do I also have to wait for awhile for them to respawn?

Thanks.

More questions.

Does the "salvage" skill for the engineer ONLY increase the amount of loot when salvaging items? (In otherwords, I assume it doesn't affect loot in any other way.)

Once I have found all the monster types do they ever get tougher for the same type of creature when I reach really high sectors?

Thanks.

Rob

Hi rayres/Rob - i try to answer some of your question out of my experience:

1. after your officer max out the "recommended" limits you can increase their skill levels further once the officer reaches level 10 - of course this only makes senses for skills that increases something like more damage or more hp - if its boolean in nature like eliminating space hazards this would be a waste.

2. if i remember correctly - you can hire officers in later sectors that have more than one skill - but they are also randomized - better hunt yourself for an officer with the starting skills you like for her class.

3. you rather increase your teams HP with a better suit and officer perks.

4. could not notice that DR does reduce damage from monsters cause its very variable - DR is most important to land on a more hostile planet withouth getting killed fast due to planetary conditions.

5. the most reliable way is to get a suit with a high oxygen capacity - and maybe that oxygenregenerator that increases it too. - the increased capacity of the suit also increase the oxygen gained from pickups - try shopping for a good suit beyond sector 12 or 15 then you can start cavediving.

8. monsters seem to respawn some time after a level change - this can cause some nasty surprises on your way back from a cave - your way to your shuttle could be blocked by a big nasty bunny of doom.

9. dont know if its more loot stacks to find or more per stack or both. but more loot in general is always good - especially in early game.

10. higher sector - tougher monsters in general - really depends on your current gear - a sector 2 shotgun wont help you on a sector 8 planet much.

(ibol - wheres that unlimited equipment upgrade: )
