As you well know you can play Clear Sky any way that you want to.
By no means am I telling you there is only one way or my way to do so.
That's what I like about the GSC Forums unlike other places, like Reddit
for example, where people get easily offended at everything including the
implication that when someone is giving advice that it must be done in
the manner that is suggested. This is only my experience and advice:

No. They are across the road from the loner camp in Cordon in the house where you first meet Sin in Lost Alpha.

I have not joined any factions this time and have tried approaching slowly and unarmed but they still open fire.

---END QUOTATION---


That particular group of Bandits starts out hostile regardless of your actions. You can sneak into the building and enter the attic without being seen via the door on the side opposite the road, though. If you leave them be they'll eventually move on and be killed fighting Stalkers or mutants in the area.

There are some other hostile Bandit groups that you'll meet later on regardless of your relationship with the faction. Killing the members of those groups will lower your overall standing with the faction, but so long as you don't kill enough to turn the entire faction hostile (or complete missions that turn them against you) you can always win the faction at-large back by doing odd jobs and saving the asses of the friendly/neutral ones from incoming mutant attacks.

My safe space

No offense taken here Tejas.

I just wanted clarification on the mission, which was 'Collect the Loot', not 'Take the Loot from the Bandits'.

So when approaching the area and taking fire from Bandits, my usual response would be to return fire and take them out, but I want to be everyone's friend this game.

So I used a previous save and took MaxChill's advice about sneaking into the house from the north side.

When I grabbed the case, the Bandits started shooting and I thought they had seen me. It was actually a group of wild boars that killed all 5 of them!

Win!

Back to the Swamps to schmooze with Clear Sky some more.

Nice. One thing you can count on in the Cordon is that any non-military NPC who doesn't disappear when danger is near (e.g. traders, repair techs, and Valerian) will be killed by mutants or enemy NPCs before long.

If you'd like to make some easy money (by my standards, anyway) at this stage in the game, kill the military at the base and then take their weapons and sell them to Suslov at the CS base. The military AI is highly exploitable due to their propensity toward prioritizing the camp jobs at the road entrance of the base, and there's no reason to worry about relation with military in the game.

Yes, there will be hostile Bandits regardless of what you do. These
are usually spawned related to tasks that become available later once
they are in place. You may see these in the Cordon north of the Loner
Base or across the street at the Farmhouse too. These are related to
tasks given by the Loner Trader that I said to previously NOT take.

There are some possible other locations some may be but it is best to
avoid them if possible and let other men and mutants do your dirty work.
Likewise in Garbage, the level changer Bandits, the Salvage Yard Bandits
and others are hostile and that is why you avoid them and improve your
relations. Once the regular Bandits go to "green", the hostile Bandits
will go from "red" to yellow". Even the Bandits that mug you after
coming back from the Dark Valley will appear "yellow" once you
catch up with them to get your gear back ( but not your $ )
if you make the overall Bandit Faction friendly "green".

TM5000,

I retrieved the PDA but upon attempting to return it, there is no dialog.

Maybe the quest giver got killed? Can't remember if fetch quests are flagged as failed then. The trick is to return an item before the NPC gets killed, and then follow them so you can loot the item back once they're dead.

My intention was to improve my standing with Miltary
---END QUOTATION---


That might have been possible in the original design, but it was later cut from the game. You can still find code remains, such as a non-hostile Military NPC greeting you East of the Rookie Village early in the game. You can also somewhat help Khaletsky's driver.

Did you attack the Renegades in the Swamps? Then you've missed an opportunity.

Wild Napr quest


---QUOTATION---
First time Clear Sky player
Do NOT do the jobs that Wild Napr offers if you are a Mercenary and you are trying to keep the Bandits friendly/neutral.

TS
---END QUOTATION---



The series of jobs which starts with 'find info on Fang from the diggers' (or something like it), then continues to a Dark Valley entrance, where I was to help a Stalker fight off dogs.

He died in the fight, then I got a new mission and a PDA message attributing it to Wild Napr.

Have I gone too far at this point? I still want to avoid hostilities with the Bandits, but had no option to decline the mission.

Not sure why, but after a day or so in Cordon, I returned and was able to complete the mission. *shrug*

TM5000~

You need to finish the Game at least once before you try all the
wonderful exploits that are listed in Three Mile Island's signature.
