Year 10 Day 301 5:29
Is this possible? I have 180 npcs (all are riflemen and mcts) that I would like to equip with a weapon. Can I do this?

Short answer? No.

Long answer? Nnnnoooooo.

Seriously, the only way an NPC can 'hold' an item is having boxstackers in your party - they will pickup any item you pick up thats similar (ie you pick up a cargo crate, and so do they). However you cannot see it when you scan them as its a rough hack of the code to make it work.

I don't think so. Ellias would know waaay more than me lol but I seem to remember reading (or hearing? Dev meeting vid?) that eventually it will be a simple matter to give items to NPCs and the like who are in your party. I imagined this is something that may come with combat? Dunno, but I'd assume there'd be ways to equip them with armour/weapons if it's their role. Otherwise the millions of suits of armour or weapons being made for a population of 4380 sentients would be kinda silleh.

Is it possible? No. Will it be possible? Almost certainly.
