Does anyone know how the Ghillie Set Woodland works? The description says it can be added to the Ghillie Suit but I tried to merge them and nothing happened.

I really have no idea what they're supposed to do. I would assume so from the description but I've only ever seen it in VR and googling the item just loops back to a similar question in a post from 2020. I'm not great with reading the XMLs so I haven't dived into the numbers about what it specifically does.

It's probably an old AIMNAS item. Look here and scroll down about halfway down;

Found it!   http://thepit.ja-gal axy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=15604&goto=231082#msg_231082

It appears that they are an attachment for the Ghillie Suit which of course provides a camo bonus. They are the "improved" version of the Ghillie Kit which provides a smaller bonus.
Not sure how you want to handle them but it is already easy enough to get to 100% camo with some MOLLE.

I've noticed that I haven't lost any loyalty in Salinas for hanging out in a squad. In the previous update, I could barely spend any time there in Salinas without getting messages saying the people were unhappy. Not sure which version has a bug or if this is just because of a new value

Yes, he's quite the mover and I have him on my team after finding oil rigs were running smoother without him. I actually ended up giving Eagle the foreman job but both are entertaining in combat at least for their speech.

Hi,

Was Ilya important to the game? He was killed before I could even notice there is any NPC in the sector and received notofication in the log.
Same question for the power station. Does it have any use?
How good are Babyface stats? I'm wondering if it's worth anything to do this quest. Also, my game freezes when I agree to escort him. I've already passed on Eagles (too expensive in my opiniom), so unless he has killer stats, I won't take him to party in San Mona.

Vengeance like regular vanilla JA2 doesn't have any gamebreaking characters that if they die you miss out on a huge part of the game, you just might lose the benefit of interacting with them or hiring them or have a related quest tied to them.

Babyface has pretty good stats and quite quick for a big guy, though he's not the sharpest wisdom wise. He's also fairly pricey at $2500 a day but that's fair considering his abilities. There's no feature to escort so perhaps you have him confused with someone else.

Ok, thanks! I checked and found out my girls have to perform for him... Anyway, 2500$ seems too much, comparing to free Ilya. But that's just my opinion.
I actually repeated the battle and managed to save the old Dolvich. That's why Babyface doesn't sound interesting to me. Also, I guess Conrad and Slay are still out there somewhere.

Sorry, but I had to create a new account. Couldn't log into the old one and there is no reset button available. I can either use this one or you can send me restore link.

Anyway, I have Ilya for free 100%. I snuck into his cell and gave him a gas mask. Then he told me something like this "You are very smart, I will work for free for you". Then we engaged the fight in the sector.
So perhaps I discovered something that wasn't known before happy

My new problem is Malino. I was gaining loyality and then it dropped to 0%, after I was fighting tanks on the bridge. Is it even possible to gain 20% there? I remember in Vanilla it was very hard, so I figured in this mod it's simply impossible to train militia and I have to defend it with mercs only. That actually adds more fun.

Another thing is Kingpin's Fort, south to Malino. I decided not to fight Kingpin in my campaign, but after few rounds with the enemy side, his soldiers are starting to fight with me and with the enemy. This is very weird, everyone is hostile to the other. I guess it adds fun too, but I wanted to be neutral this time happy With my gear settings, I earn enough from selling enemy inventory, so I don't need his money from San Mona mine.

Is it possible to reason with Bubba and Warden in Tixa? Or they are hostile right away?
I am yet to fight in Doran, but I didn't find anyone except Bubba, Miguel and Joey. Conrad is present in the game? I mean the characters from Vanilla. Sparky with her son, Cobra, Eagles, Fish etc - I found them already.

I can't honestly remember it's been so long ago. I might have to check that. I just know my current playthrough he's charging but he may well have got partially gassed. Maybe check your financial records, this will tell you for sure if his or anyone elses wages are being deducted.

Malino is hard to get a foothold in as the town has strong loyalty to the queen. You can gain more by winning more battles, even in surrounding areas and avoid things like damaging property and of course killing civilians. You can also of course use mercs with the snitch trait to spread propaganda to gain more loyalty which is very much needed in Vengeance, but it's slow going in Malino and to a lesser extent Salinas.

Kinpin's Fort is a bit of a special case, his guards there are very territorial, so if you tresspass and are spotted they tend to turn hostile.

I checked and Ilya's total cost is 0$

I won some battles in or close to Malino but nothing works. After battle on the bridge it is impossible to go above 2-3%. I will try the snitch idea. Otherwise, I will use mercs for defending.
I am sure I just killed the enemy soldiers in that sector.

Is Carmen in the game? I have some nice heads for sale.

Regarding the Maria-Agel quest problems some people faced: Right after returning Maria to Angel, Angel would give one of my mercs the vest and then the game always hanged.

I found a workaround for this: If you move all your mercs (except Maria) far away, when Maria enters the shop, Angel will drop the kevlar leather vest on the ground and then leave with no problems. He won't try to talk to any of our mercs. Maria will join as designed.

Any idea where else I can find Enrico? In the palace I found only the Gourd and vice-governon. She asked if I talked to Enrico and finished the conversation. Should I just advance to Tracona?

Update:
Found him, he just appeared after I started playing again.

Hello.
I visited the websites again after while and I find out about the update. So I reinstall the old version. I noticed the BORS (Barrett Optical Ranging System) has now showing (highlights) in the sector inventory the guns "compatible" with it (see the picture, sorry for quality. I couldn't take a screenshot). But how I can install it on the guns, please? Or if these guns on the picture are not compatible, could I ask for list of guns what this device can be installed on, please? Also I remember while ago Tony sells the guns compatible with this device. Is it still then correct?

Hi Fortesque, unfortunately the BORS attachment has not been tested to any degree. It's one on my list of ToDo items that I haven't had time to look at yet. At the moment it has Bipod tags, so it should attach in the same way, and is compatible with most long range and Anti-Materiel rifles.

It seems like the BORS attachment only works in the Old Attachment System at the moment, currently WIP to get it working in NAS.

Hello.
Okay. Thank you for response. I would love to have this awesome device helping to my mercs in the tough battles later in the game. The stats are pretty beefy and can't wait to be able to use it. So I'll be patiently waiting.

Have a great day! :-)

Grab the latest revision if you are using Github. We've done a bit of a fudge with BORS now being able to be attached as an external fitment. May look a little odd in NAS, but it should act as it's supposed to. Provides to hit and damage bonus at the expense of firing speed and the minimum distance requirement limitations, so really only suitable for long distance shooting.

Uhm.... started a new game.... after the parachute the game does the mouse pointer roll thing (I have no control) until I am discovered and everyone starts shooting at me..... and I cannot run north and exit via the bridge.... nor do I make it to either west or east before one or more merc is killed.

is this a bug or is it a puzzle?

No, it's not a bug, your landing zone has been compromised. Seek cover around the rocks and debris and try and fight your way out. If you are finding the going too tough, I suggest you adjust the difficulty settings.

You arrive a full turn away from cover (with one a-hole shooting at you as soon as you make a move which makes everyone crouch and takes away action points) with most of your mercs only having revolvers so they can't actually hit anything because the AI stays just out of shot distance.... and one of them can kill your whole squad by himself, and when he arrives his automatic firing takes away all action points leaving you in a do nothing turn spiral. I assume there are more such surprises further into the game?

I assume that means this is a "hardcore" mod?

EDIT: restarted at beginner... it's almost too easy now :/ I wonder if I just started off with bad luck regarding the AI placement? Will see how it goes.

It's possible, I generally get a more than a turn before seeing enemies. Another factor might be your merc loadouts, I'd at least have a couple with more than pistols. Don't forget there is more than one inventory kit for mercs at AIM, unlike Vanilla. Mercs at MERC unfortunately come with more limited kits.

Well I restarted a few times to check... the only difference is how close the first enemy is but combat always starts seconds after landing.

Hi.  I'm new to the forums.  I gave this game a go thinking that with so little money at the start I should have started with MERC mercs.  Boy was that a mishap.  I did notice that the central town in the middle of Arulco's map, Salinas doesn't have a working mine.  I tried taking the town only to eventually learn it didn't have any source of income.  To make things worse, I my support in the town rose so slowly that by the time I could train militia the enemy was constantly attacking places I already took.  Odd.
