Do the travel speed modifiers like "travel_car" stack? Are they cumulative? If my IMP merc has the minor skill ("Trait") "Survival" and the Background "Car Mechanic," do those modifiers stack? (I've read that some bonuses stack, like Squadleader and Deputy.)

Thanks!

EDIT: having grown impatient waiting more than 30 seconds for a response, I set out to do some testing. cheeky

First, some context. I'm using the 7609 build with ja2_7609en+AI_r525.exe.

Firefighter background increases vehicle travel speed (not helicopter) 5%.
Car Mechanic background increases land vehicle travel speed 10%.
Hunter skill increases vehicle travel speed (not helicopter) 10%.
Ranger skill increases vehicle travel speed (not helicopter) 20%.

Here are the results.

Custom merc 1 with Firefighter background reduces the travel time per sector by 2 min. in the (ice cream) truck.
Custom merc 1 with Firefighter background reduces the travel time per sector by 0 min. in the Hummer.

Igor with the Hunter skill reduces the travel time per sector by 3 min. in the truck.
Igor with the Hunter skill reduces the travel time per sector by 2 min. in the Hummer.

Custom merc 2 with Ranger skill and the Car Mechanic background reduces the travel time per sector by 9 min. in the truck.
Custom merc 2 with Ranger skill and the Car Mechanic background reduces the travel time per sector by 8 min. in the Hummer.

Custom merc 1 with Firefighter background plus Igor with the Hunter skill reduces the travel time per sector by 5 min. in the truck.
Custom merc 1 with Firefighter background plus Igor with the Hunter skill reduces the travel time per sector by 4 min. in the Hummer.

Conclusions
1) Bonuses stack, whether it's from different mercs or the same merc. On the same merc, the Ranger bonus (20%) and the Car Mechanic bonus (10%) stack, yielding a cumulative bonus of 30%.
2) The game seems to cap the bonuses at 30%. I could never reduce the travel time more than 9 min. per sector even with all 3 of the above mercs in the same vehicle.
3) The Hummer is a slow a$$ compared to the truck. No wonder Dave is selling it for $10k even with a lifetime fuel supply!
