    can anyone recommend some car arcanum schools of engineering? I thought gunslinger to make things like blade launcher telsa gun grenade launcher acid gun which all sounded cool but then i read theres a lot of powerful'er store bought guns??

    I got a gun wielding automon shem as one of my starting 4 will that make taking 7lvls of gun and 7lvls of mech worthwhile? otherwise i was sorta thinking about elec/explosive/smith

    I reloaded several times to look at a bunch of the random shems i got from the elite class... but maybe that wasn't a good sampling?

    is there a module angle to this question?

    It sounds like your just asking which tech school is best to spend character points in in vanilla arcanum.

    In that case I've found explosives to be a blast.

    i was missing the words car arcanum

    err... i mean in the hack.. car arcanum theres a lot of new items right? guns are a lot better store bought and i know theres some pretty nifty schematics i saw by getting random ones to start with so its not quite the same as normal arcanum plus ... i seem to be leveling a lot faster lvl 7leaving shrouded hills and i think my lvl cap is gonna be 127 ...

    it'd be nifty to learn them all but i was thinking of having jayna in my party and maybe she could cover her two branches reasonably well..

    and if each rank of a tech school is 10points how do with 7ranks you manage to get 100points which is required for some schematics?

    I *think* car arcanum by itself uses the level 50 cap. I thought you had to add the level 127 hack on top of car arcanum to enjoy them both.

    It's also the only hack that is explicitly stated to work with car arcanum.

    The way to get more than 100 points is through tech manuals purchased at the university in tarant.

    The tech manauals add an amount equal to your intelligence to your skill in the specialty the manual covers.

    Int potions can help boost this tech manual increase.

    manuals arent consumed so it's a long term investment.

    i don't quite understand...

    i don't quite understand... you can't get 30intelligence so to get +30expertise you'd need more than one reading right? .. or is it like a book you just hold? or is it like a schematic so once u read it once u can't read it again?

    its like a book you just hold and you can hold more than one.

    if your int is 8 and you need 24 in chem and you havent invested any skill points in chem you can buy 3 books have all three in your inventory and you will get plus 24 in chem. thats how people meet the requirements.

    But they are damn heavy, so you can't have to many.
