Terran Hulls for boarding in AP

Post by LTerSlash » Thu, 24. Jul 14, 03:05

OK i dont get this, i managed to board a Valhalla before, now it seems all 4 stars in pods cant board a Woden?

And about all 5 stars mech cant board a Atmo Lifter by space walking?

In AP all hulls are a lot thicker so you need 5 stars in mech and engineering and wanton use of pods to get them through

Pretty sure the ATF ships are much harder to board then the Terran ships. You might want to practice Xenon boarding techniques on them for the best success.
1940s - Various "computers" are "programmed" using direct wiring and switches. Engineers do this in order to avoid the tabs vs spaces debate.

Also make sure that they don't have Hull Polarising installed.
It will make cutting through hull even harder - in the case of Terran ships, they become completly unboardable, unless you fry that Hull Polarising with Ion Disrupter.

If you dont bump on one of those, ANYTHING else is boardable with 20 5star marines.

Spacewalk boarding of a Terran ship is basically a waste of time, since your marines can't get through the hull without the hull cutting boost that pods provide. The Atmo Lifter has required pods at least since TC, since it apparently has an extra thick hull.
I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am :D
