    At least you made it. In my current run I could only get up there but since MC didn't have dex for that subsequent check and neither computers I could only use fast travel to GTFO. Ironically enough, token for computers among other skills lies THERE but you cannot get back unless MC has 7+ str. Maybe it should be possible to pass this check by a companion, with a rope to others or something. Or without - if MC has enough str, others follow automatically, same for the dex jump.

    As for crit - yeah, so far it can be only farmed elsewhere. To takedown the thug on a way to 'boss' in the outskirts you have to have 75 value and it's something you cannot possible gain by doing takedowns only and even using both tokens unless skill is tagged, in which case I'm not sure.

    in outskirts, close to entrance there are 2 thugs about to jump on some dude. It bugs me that you cant kill one before combat starts even though they have their backs turned on you

    Actually, you can go back, there's a slight bug with the dialogue. When I went a second time, I just clicked on the strength check. Failed it, but then the option to use the elevator returned. So then I rode it up again and was able to pass the computer check finally.

    Basically it summons a shuttle thing that takes you across to the other side, which has a few items and the quest necessary stuff. I want to say there's a token there, but I can't remember. You then climb down to the ground floor and come out right where the air filters are located.

    just checked, you can click on destroyed elevator and can climb down without further checks. No need for dex to jump on another tower... not like there is anything to be found there

    Yeah, we are planning on adding a few more encounters.

    That will be shown once you return from the Habitats, with the Pit having different quests and events depending on who's leading.

    She can train MC after bringing frog's psy brain i.e 40 base xp 80 if tagged 100 if tagged + mastermind. Anyway, reaching 3 with tagged is easy, but w/o tagged you have to eigher talk to sharpface or have 7str in order to go back to the tower once you obtain the token from up there. Agesilaus they've fixed elevator bug already not if I was going to abuse it.

    Generally speaking, any skill which can be raised by training should be used by MC at all times because companions cannot always do that (like that sharpface check and missing the very needed xp). When they'll fix Faithe's thief trait though it'll be possible to train her in thouse skills w/o tagging them.

    Also, not every check gives 40 xp, far from it. Containers in the Pit gives 20 base xp for example and that control panel at the start of Armory gives base 30 xp electronics + 30 computers xp

    i uh... tagged lockpick but decided to give it a go without assigning it point at start. Now I cant get to armory as im missing 1 lockpick to reach lvl allowing me to bypass hard fight. I keep walking around in hope that I will find that missing check... somewhere

    assigning a dot to lockpick makes no sense, fuckbuddy next to your appartment gives you one for ...free
    arent you a sneaker?
    get a companion, throw enough grenades into sharpfaces face...

    Someone is angry... Anyways, I've done about four runs! All melee users. Love the melee in this game. Very satisfying. Working on my fifth run - you guessed it, it's a melee user too!

    We need more challenging side encounters. And more sieges like the one against Jonas.

    A popular theory is that, much like Luther turning to prejudice and vitriol when the Jews did not accept his message in overwhelming numbers, Pope became uncharacteristically bitter and blindly critical towards literally everything after the commerical failure of his Space Invaders remake featuring space elf romance options. I cannot speculate further but will say that I once had a relative who developed a Space Invaders remake featuring space elf romance options that proved to be a commercial failure and we don't talk about him anymore.

    #BUGREPORT

    after rescuing hank in outskirts and following up this quest with sneak approach:
    - I takedown closest guard
    - I takedown guard behind locked door
    - I get in position for remaining 2
    - I turn distortion field on
    - I takedown closest one
    - remaining guard is in alerted mode and I have just enough AP to move behind him
    - remaining guard turns towards me but combat doesnt start
    - I can move again while standing on red field
    - I takedown remaining guard even though we are standing face to face. During animation he turns nicely so that i can stab his back

    Stuff i might assume be useful for repro:
    - 10 dex
    - 5 sneak
    - 3 critical strike
    - distortion field
    - ghost
    - prowler
    - 0 noise/sneak penalty from gear

    So he's judging the game based on the equivalent of Klamath or Shrouded Hills? I guess a dev now has to front-load all good content into EA, and make the rest placeholders, like Numa.

    Couldn't reproduce this one. Any more details?

    You mean the cloaking device instead of distortion field?
