Adding weapons to ship?

Post by Trifler » Thu Sep 17, 2015 8:28 pm

I managed to purchase a ship and a crew member, and after several restarts I managed to buy a weapon, but I can't figure out how to place it on my ship. Is there a way to do that or is that functionality not in yet?

Access the Captain's inventory; you will find the items there and will be able to place them on the ship. It may crash during weapon placement though.
All I know is this Lo-Pan character comes out of nowhere...while his buddies are flying around on wires cuttin' everybody to shreds and he just stands there, waiting for me to drive my truck straight through him with light coming out of his mouth?

Cool. How do I access the Captain's inventory?

While I'm at it, can we move existing furniture?

Existing furniture? No, at least not that I'm aware of. The Captain's inventory can be located on the character bubble in the lower left, the inventory is the blacked out button at 3 o clock.

Sorry for the delayed reply!

Once you get a cadet promoted to an engineer, they will have the option to pack equipment up into a box.
Characters can then pick up the box and add it to their inventory, to place one of these packed items simply click on the item in the inventory then it will appear under your mouse cursor which you can then move about to find an appropriately large space for the item.

I can't say it's a seamless experience at the moment though... certainly don't pack your transporter.

Very cool. Sounds like that'll be something to look forward to in future versions, but it's good to know for sure that it's a planned feature.

Sounds like I should go pack the life support system. ;-)

Why you have to advise him not to pack his transporter, does it affect?

I packed my teleporter and accidentally saved with it packed up ... logged back in, went to unpack the teleporter and it was gone. Try doing anything once your teleporter is gone.
