Alright, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Magic is one of my favorite mercs, but in this mod (or maybe just UB), he costs around $42,000. So, I was wondering if anyone who's played this mod more times through than I have knows where to get more cash from.

So far, I'll rake in anywhere from $400-600 when taking over various villages or caches, and one of the biggest sources of greenbacks is gunning down Dai ("GI, JOO DIE NAAOWW!!!")... are there any more special NPCs I might've missed, that I could kill for cash?

Bah... I can't believe Magic's bastard-ass costs more than Tarballs, this time around.

it's been a while, but if i remember there's not all that much cash to be found (never bothered me much since i only play with 4 mercs) besides what you mentioned

you can make bunch of $$ by selling all sorts of junk to Betty-

most $/item is stuff like platinum watch, t-52-3 armor, medi kits, lockpick kits, rice, steel helmets, combat knives, cigars...

Yeah, money should not be such a problem. You get 4 mercs for free so you can hire 1 or 2 top mercs from AIM. In my opinion you should indeed not play this mod with more then 6 men. You are afterall a SOG Team, not a platoon of regular grunts.

I myself usually hire Stogie, Cougar and Gaston and add Spooky, Ruiz and Taylor to them later (no IMP). Or hire Gus or Magic and my Camo/Auto Weapons IMP. Then i have Spooky, Tex and my IMP as scouts/snipers and Ruiz, Taylor and Sarge as my grunt work squad.

You will have somewhere between 3000 and 7000 dollars left and you you will find, say, another 2000 in the game. So you can hire some cheaper AIM Mercs if you want to later on.

Yeah, and Taylor hates Buzz, too. I would've thought Shadow and Spooky would've gotten along, though, but hey.

Yeah, but i usually don't use any females in SOG`69 so that's OK. I'm kinda dissapointed Sarge is just like Len and his skills will not improve.

But i find the Tour of Duty guys really cool to play with so i will hire them always. Just a shame Goldman, Percell, Johnson, Baker and Doc were left out. I would like to play this mod with the entire TOD group...Would be so cool :ok:

@Stealth Mongoose Yeah that's a shame. Would been cool if you could play the mod using only Camo mercs. Spooky, Shadow, Tex and J.D. (my camo IMP) sounds like a winning team to me! Oh well :whoknows:

I prefer to recruit guys who seem to be the Nam Veteran type - usually Len & Larry. I use ProEdit (find it in the Binarydata file, for those who don't know about it) to allow Len & Sarge normal experience progression. That's the only thing I modify, and whilst it only seems a minor adjustment, I get far more rewarding play.
I don't hire Tex, he doesn't seem to belong to this mod. Has anyone been able to find Kulba? His character would suit Vietnam better.

Yeah... if you're going for optimum 60's themed squad, try to put Ice, Static, Nails, and/or Larry somewhere in the mix.

@idkfa

I usually use Tex as a ARVN/South Vietnamese Army liason, with his cheap Hollywood lines he fits in perfectly, making him perfectly suitable for this mod. All a question of your imagination if you ask me Smile

Everybody's complaining that Spooky doesn't like him Ruiz hates him... geez, why don't you change the relations tables at Proedit!!? And the money problem, change the merc prices at Proedit!!! I modified all the stats in M.E.R.C and raised the prices so they were worth of taking!!! But really, I still wasted 30 minutes selling trash to Betty. Wink
