Hey happy

So I spent a couple of hours trying AR+SDO+AI with IIS and NCTH.

I started playing in Expert as I used to in my previous gameplays, and I immediately restarted in Experienced as it looked way too hard for me with this mod big grin

I managed to get my way through a couple of places, even reached San Mona, but even looting all those places I didn't find any med kit, or maybe just one (I don't remember if Ira came with one or not).

Since Bobby's Ray cannot be unlocked after taking Drassen, what choice do I have to get supplied in med kits ?
Should I rush Cambria instead of Drassen ?

I really don't like to reload my game once I got hit. If I got hit then I got hit and I have to continue with the consequences. But here with this mod I reached a point where all my mercs are bandaged and cannot be healed anymore because I used the single med kit I had.

How do you guys do to play this mod in Experience or even Expert without reloading every time you got hit ?

Scarce resources is unfortunately a feature of AR. Possible options are:

1) To hire a medic at the beginning who comes with a medkit.
2) Loot everything possible in every map. You might get lucky.
3) Raid the hospital in Cambria but take a loyalty dip and lose the chance to recruit Vince.
4) Play with drop all enabled might help?

Also use first aid kits for bandaging. Medkits for later.

Yes might be a good idea. That makes only more medkit but it's still twice what I have.

Since we must quickly find a reliable source of revenue at the beginning of the game I'm afraid I don't have much time to do so :/

We loose loyalty doing so ? I never noticed that.
What if we raise loyalty again through leadership ?

Oh no the game would be way too easy.

Of course. Never use medkits for bandaging.

So I tried a new run rushing Cambria. It didn't work because you need loyalty to either use the hospital or simply buy med kits from the city store.

I don't know what to think about Arulco Revisited to be honest. It was good on the paper but from my experience for now it's just 10+ hours of savescumming until you find a renewable source of med kits.

Well, Arulco Revisited is specifically made with the idea of forcing you to "live of the land" for a prolonged time in the early game, so, don't expect renewable source of anything till later in the game. To facilitate this, there are more items on the maps... and although I generally dislike the old tired RPG trope that when our all conquering heroes first come to a new village or something, they immediately go rummage through everybody's underwear drawers, it's kind of necessary here.

For example, there is a Med kit in Omerta, at A10, there is usually one on a farm north of San Mona (might depend on map version in SDO), there is one in San Mona in a room behind Kyle, so just cleaning up Omerta and going to San Mona (my preferred start, unless I start with a bit more money so that I have time to fortify Omerta in the start, in which case I'll probably take time to do Drassen military base before San Mona) gives you enough Medkits to last a decent time. You'll also find some regen boosters that help if you need to keep the pace up, although it's pretty trivial to clean up San Mona, fill it with militia and take Kingpin out with their help, at which point you have enough money to be able to take things at whatever pace you want, so medkits are a luxury, you can always heal up naturally while training militia, repairing, and all that and then just use them to fix up attribute losses.
