What are your options in Free Play? Is it just about joining Factions? Besides Duty what other Factions are available?

Duty missions

So after Joining Duty I have a continuing list of mission to handle which is great.

Going back to the Freedom camp in northern Outskirts produced no hostile actions, even though I am Duty now. Freedom disposition is -900 and I am even wearing Duty armor! (I thought it the right thing to do)

Ended up recovering Maddog's dogtags from the corpse of a Dutyer:

After meeting with the Sin negotiator, I spoke to Warrant Officer who called me "Major". Wow, I was only earlier today promoted to Sergeant!

Now to the Sin underground shithole.

Freeplay

So as you can see from my loadout above, I still have a basic armor on, the same weapons for a long time in game, and the homemade detector.

By keeping my carry weight down and with stamina recovery artifacts, I can run as long as I want and never tire. Vehicles are more of a pain then they are worth, plus I cannot find any.

I was very pleased to find I can join Duty in freeplay.

However: https://imgur.com/vHk0Nde

The game sends me to where he was when I should have taken the offer. I found him at his current location in the new bar and completed the mission to join.

I noticed Barkeep is now packing heat. I truly hope he does not have to use it inside the Bar! https://imgur.com/yT73czd

I can fit inside the dog house near Doc in Swamps: https://imgur.com/Latskmt

Who is this group- Devs? https://imgur.com/5L3EtYR

I spoke to Sakarov, who gave me this cool new scanner. Not sure how I use it yet. https://imgur.com/2K4jqz1

Fun stuff!

Skill points and PRM Modpack

What I linked to is what I gleaned from the vanilla 1.4007 files. No surprises there.
I just loled again with the "How do I earn... " quote. Yes! it was meant to be light hearted AND a shrug at the same time because who knows what tweaks some of these mods do to the game. Someone wrote up what missions gain a point here:

https://lost-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Skill_points

But there's some randomness in play too. You could come back with that stupid bit of wire in one game (and get a point) and in another game do the same thing and get nothing...

So you have to play to find stuff out.

About your loadout.

Right here I see you're playing PRM and for some reason that Goldfish looks to be giving +16 bulletproof, the ToadsTool looks to be giving +20 rupture and the radiation figures appear to be reflecting 4*3+3=15 for the Bubbles and Knot.

My vanilla game would give +21 bulletproof, +26 rupture and wouldn't be registering that +15 radiation at all (I would need to wear Shells, Giblets, Urchins etc to affect that figure)

If you were playing the hardcore mod that would be something like +12 bullet, +13 rupture (or thereabouts)

So PRM is tweaking the arty properties, and many other game features are probably also altered in subtle ways (rewards for missions?)

(Not to mention unopenable stashes, guns like Grozas that only accept a specific scope)

So yeah, Play it. Find out. Remains good advice at this stage because none of the games or mods come with a handbook worth spit.

ByteMe - Looking at the Wiki you linked to:


---QUOTATION---
Sharpshooter - to enhance better fire control by reducing firearm wander. This affects the 'dispersion' and 'zoom inertion' parameters experienced by the player's actor (both factors operate in an inverse manner):
---END QUOTATION---



When I look through my AKS-74, the crosshairs do not move at all, presumably because the rifle is fully upgraded.

When I pick up another weapon, the sights wobble around, so Sharpshooter points would stop that?

As long as I use an upgraded weapon, I don't seem to need those points.

Humorous comments on Wiki:

Fandom User: How do I earn skill points?

ByteMe: Play the game.

Skill points and how they work


---QUOTATION---
Completing the game

I was browsing my PDA and noticed I have 10 skill points to use!!!

I must have missed that announcement.

That is quite an end game reward.

Incidentally: Barter-10, Endurance-10, Sharpshooter-0, Survivor-10.

I have never had any complaints about shooting accuracy, hence no points there. Barter doesn't seem to cause any noticeable difference with merchants, though. Endurance is easily quantified with 2.5 kg for each point.

I met Brutus in garbage who plays a game with medkits and gives 10k for the right guess. Sort of weird encounter there.

The three part mission to recover the safe combo was fun, and the reward is really generous!
---END QUOTATION---



Is this any use?

Glad you made it to Freeplay, have fun!

Freeplay


---QUOTATION---
I just experienced a blowout in freeplay.

Is this right? I thuoght I took care of those.
---END QUOTATION---



Yeah, everything remains the same.


After you "switch it off", if you don't do the small jump ending in Freeplay, but nip back upstairs in X2, you'll see it's the same there too....

Congrats for getting all the way to Free Play! Once I get back to my Game, now going on over 2 months Game Time...I'm supposed to meet some drunk Bandit in the Dark Valley Bandit Base.
