??? It's part of our Job Description as Drox Operatives that we DON'T have to manage 'all those annoying people'... thinking about giving up the life of a Drox Operative & becoming a Civilian Babysitter? While you're at it, wanna have a Spouse & Kids in tow?

Any chance that you can send me a save game with this problem? I can't reproduce it so far.

I'll see what I can do.

I'm a Dropbox User, & next time I spot Items doing this, i'll try my best to Link ya to a Dropbox Link containing a Save Game with both Equipped Items & the Offending Item(s) available, via the Offending Items being in the Ships Inventory, instead of the usual selling the Items as Loot.

Especially... my Main Ship is using a Fighter Bay giving me Level 100 Advanced Drones... & I keep finding Green Pluses on looted Fighter Bays giving various Ship Types ranging in Levels in the 60s or 70s... How the hell are lvl 60ish Fighters better than Level 100 Advanced Drones...? O_0 About the only thing that's ever gonna even POSSIBLY be better are maybe Level 100 Heavy Raiders...

Actually, maybe I should try to have Multiple example Items in the Inventory before I send the Files... as of the time of this Post, I got my Main in the 80s, (awaiting an Alt to farm him up a good 50 Structure Heavy Slot Armor) a lvl 15 Fringe built to have a Character to Multiplayer with a pal with without being stupidly overlevel compared to him, & a lvl 18 or 19ish Brunt who's gonna get me the lvl 25 Brunt Achievement for me as he farms up the aforementioned 50 Structure Heavy Slot Armor... & I might just keep him even after that... Missiles are pretty fun for weapons that are screwed into needing Computer Power & weak vs fast flyers! (Speaking of which... Missiles with much faster travel speed might be fun new additions, they could be new High Tier Weapons that are so strong, they START at 150 Tactical of need... give Specialists some fun toys... This idea could extend to other Weapons too! )

New Idea: A way to move already placed/assigned Crew Points & re-distribute them. Sometimes, our first Characters can't avoid mistakes, yet we still love them... plus we can make plans needing a certain kinda Crew Member... then never FIND that actual Crew Member... no matter how hard we try...

I've got some bad luck with one of my ships - every crew member i found was crappy and/or of wrong race, so here comes an idea. We got a Wandering trader (as random), so adding Slaver/Job Market/High School (pick one) ship seems like a solution.

Even in 1.005 Beta, it looks like if ya gotta Heavy Slot Engine equipped, & a Engine in your Inventory that gives a tad more Defense, but a tad less Thrust at the same time, the Engine in the Inventory with the Tad More Defense is getting a Green Plus... this makes me wonder, which Stat is intended to be the Dominant Stat for Heavy Slot Engines, Defense or Thrust...? I would think Thrust personally...

I think it should compare thrust, for weapons all it should look at imo is the dps. For shields, just the shield capacity. Bascally just look at the main stat and ignore everything else. Because I have had drops of shields that were like 150 shield cap lower than what I have, but the game was saying its better. Then again the itemization is pretty messed up in Drox with some things, like reactors, its pretty funny when you get a reactor thats 2 tiers lower and has higher powerload stat than something much higher level. This should not be possible at all. Bascally there is not much of a clear showing of a higher tier version of the same item being better with some of the item types.

Reactor and shields are the major offenders of this, armor less so. Weapons generally have been fine.

I've spotted some Items misbehaving in a similar way to how the Special Weapons Category Components were in terms of comparison: Battery Other, & EM Weapons. Examples of EM Weapons include the EM Shockwave & the Lightning Cannon. (Note to fellow Players: The Lightning Cannon is totally bad dude! Be cautioned though that i've gotten it tested, & it IS a Hit Roll Weapon... I might use this weapon on my Utopian Alt & move Beam Usage to my future Shadow Alt... > : D ) Kinda annoying trying to compare Energy Leechers & the Game comparing an Energy Leecher to a Energy Harvester instead... No sweat though, this game has nowhere to get but better.
