I just found an AK conversion kit but it doesn't seem to work with any of the AKs that I've tried or the SKS. If it does work, what does it work with?

If it isn't implemented, is there any way for me to do it myself?

How do you solve the Day 1 quest of cleaning up the camp and contacting the surviving members? I went to the A10 underground, then cleaned up all 4 blocks and recruited Joey. Went back to A10 underground and there is no new dialogue. In the meantime I've almost liberated Drassen, but the red quest bugs me.

Contacting members isn't strictly a quest, it's just what Agatha suggests at the start of the game. If you found Joey you are doing good. There's no need to report back to Agatha after her suggestions.

What is the 'red quest' you refer to?

Oh sorry, I might have misworded it. The cleaning up the camp and contacting the surviving members quest in the History log is still red.

I might consider starting a new game with enemies drop all, this is just brutal haha.

The Drassen mine was running at 50% the whole time, but I haven't recruited the foreman. Wasn't even enough to pay for militia upkeep. I've then recruited the foreman, then manually assigned him to the Mine, which fixed it. It was running at 100% the time he was awake. I'll probably nix the foreman penalty and just not recruit them. It also seems a bit silly that they forget how to mine efficiently when he's asleep.

Tony is my best friend now, since the mine doesn't generate enough income to hire meaningful mercs. I roam the countryside, fight baddies and sell their weapons to Tony. I've also hired Rudolf for a day, mainly for his rifle and scope since I saw a few boxes of 7.92x57mm ammo on BR.

In the process of taking over Oronegro, and just in time since the Drassen mine is starting to run out.

I hope BR gets some 5.56 ammo after I take the town and SAM site.

You can change the Mining foreman features in the options ini, though the newer system gives you a few recruitment options should you use it and the added ability of the PCM (Player Character Mod) if you want to take miners into battle. I wouldn't suggest switching to drop all as it will soon kill any financial balancing or challenge. Vengeance was never intended for Drop all use.

I think the early 'quests' in red such as clearing the base may be using older code left over from Vanilla, and doubt that would change, as I say there is no follow up speeches from Agatha as far as I can remember and it's not like in Vanilla where you get to recruit others in the rebel hideout.

Taking Oronegro should help your cause, it's a good source of income and the oil rig is easier to defend than most sectors, if you position your troops well enough.

Any way to get more ammo for that tank sniper rifle found south of the starting position? I'd love to try it out but it's got almost no ammunition.

Also is the AK conversion kit an artifact from AINMAS or is it usable?

Yeah I've already changed the foreman settings. I also meant to disable mines running out, but forgot. Can't be bothered to start over now, so it is what it is. If things get too hairy, I'll increase the mine income modifier a bit.

Thanks for the warning for the drop all! And thanks for the info about the quest, I thought it stayed red because I missed something.

I'm mostly liking the mod so far. The fights are interesting and I love the more urban areas. I can finally get some good use out of SMGs.

The only hard time I'm having so far is fighting night battles with enemies throwing break lights at me constantly. I always need to have a position to fall back to if a break light lands near me. Sometimes I just quick load since half the time a break light is followed by a burst that kills someone Not me

Hi there,
Thanks for the wonderful mod!
Simple question: how do you assign a foreman for the mine/oil rig? I can't figure this out. For example, I have 100% loyalty in Drassen, but mine gives me only 50% income. I can't recruit Fred, even with Miguel. When I try to assign one of my crew member to the facility->mine->assign foreman it says that foreman already assigned... How it works, exactly?
Please help.
TIA

Hello Galushka and welcome to the Bear's Pit forum,

first you have to talk to the head miner Fred (and all other foremen) with a mercenary with high leadership:

https://zupimages.net/up/20/03/o4wc.jpg

https://zupimages.net/up/20/03/xfv9.jpg


After that you finish the talk and talk again with Fred. Now you can recruit him:

After Fred is part of your team you can assign him as mining foreman:

Much fun playing Vengeance: Reloaded mod!


Best regards,

Schein...

I cannot but say that's
1. it's very interesting that somebody in the year 2020 didn't know what's to do in this situation in this wonderful game of 1999 and
2. I'm very afraid to read such a very precisely explaination of the solution!

I had much fun to read this.
Many greatings Schein... thumbs up

@ Scheinworld: Thanks! I really appreciated your help.

But for me, I still can't recruit Fred with Miguel (98 LDR)!? When I talked to him earlier with another merc (also with high enough LDR) he refused to join because my mercs pool was full (32) (got a game message). So, I then fired a few guys and tried again to convince Mr. Fred, but no, he is against that for unknown reason! BTW, I did recruited the oil guy in far North-West corner of the map (bold one, don't remember his name) successfully. I may try to talk to Fred with another merc. According to history report the first time I talked to Fred miner was on day 2. I'm on day 34 now... Maybe it's a bug?

Anyway, thanks again for your help!

@Galushka,

you have to talk to Fred first as a miner-foreman. Than you can recruit him. The others you can recruit without talking as foreman IMO.

@Fan: I already talked to Fred by my own char on day 2, but forgot to recruit him then. Now, on my day 34, I followed Scheinworld's advise by talking to him first (this time with Miguel), but nothing: he is repeating the same phase, and that's it! I'll try to recruit another miner with Miguel.

@Galushka,

sorry, I don't have experience by making this mistake with Fred. But I believe that was it with him. Sorry, he is the best of the foremen.
You would be able to recruit p. e. Carl, Calvin and Matt. Matt is IMO the best of the rest of foremen. Then others: Frazzler, Fish, Perko, TNT, Cobra, Eagle.
Perhaps you don't know the programm ProEdit in the direktory "BinaryData" in the directory "data-1.13" or so?
If you don't, open it and scroll through all persons at the left side of this sight. You can see all their skills and so on. But you cannot change it by this way.
You may deside your choice after this who is your best.

I hope you understood my English. Much fun.

Thank you. It's not a big of a deal. Eventually I was in more than a month in game time and never recruited any miner/oil rig operator. I just wanted to try this feature. I may fire a few more mercs to lower expences.
