comment What's the easiest way to set up a private game in Insurgency?
I don't think that's what we're supposed to do. If the question remains marked as unanswered, someone with a good explanation is more likely to come by eventually. I'll only post an answer once I can myself provide instructions that will work.

comment What's the easiest way to set up a private game in Insurgency?
As a preliminary answer, you should have an "insurgency dedicated server" under Tools in Steam. Once you get that running, it should be visible in the server browser, or at least accessible via console. I'm not sure if there is a proper LAN mode, but that's what passwords are for. Try following this guide: steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/…

comment What is a turn?
Thanks. That is exactly the confirmation I was looking for, but something is still missing: when do duration-based effects occur? Every e. g. 1000 ticks? Does it start counting from the tick the event was applied on, or is there some kind of rounding going on?

comment What is a turn?
I'm fairly sure it's a step-based system like what ADoM uses, but I'd like a clarification.

comment What's the point of non-Agony Resistance infusions?
Well, that was oddly condescending, but it answers my question. As I said, it's not the minor bonus itself that bothers me, it's the disproportionate amount of effort to get that bonus.

comment Does a Charr take her partner's last name when she marries?
I don't have any concrete information here, but as I recall, you do adopt a new surname if another warband accepts you. I don't think warbands ever get disbanded; only killed. I can't cite any canon examples of either, however, so I can be entirely wrong.

comment Do you ever need to pay to obtain all the achievements in Warframe?
@memescientist Not directly. I was referring to inventory expansions primarily. If you can sell items and still get credit for obtaining and levelling them, then you're right.

comment Do you ever need to pay to obtain all the achievements in Warframe?
Partial answer: technically, no. Everything that's needed can be obtained by playing the game. Even platinum can be exchanged directly with other players, so if you do end up needing some, you can try to trade some mods for it. However, I'm not sure if mastery achievements require all the weapons/warframes to be in your inventory at the same time, or if you can sell them and still get credit.

comment Do you have enough Gem-Slots to support 3 offensive Spells?
I don't think we can answer that without clarification, at least in a satisfactory manner. Technically, yes, your equipment will generally have over six gem slots. But that is as specific an answer as we can give unless you explain what you're worried about sacrificing, what level you're trying to gear up for, and whether there are any additional limitations.

comment How to wire a guards gun?
Wiring weapons requires a lot of energy. Four bars, if I'm not mistaken. Make sure you have at least that many.

comment Does an airstrike bring more money than shooting down over water?
I only have one data point, but it looks like you get absolutely no funding from splashed down UFOs. I may have missed something, and I cannot reload a save to double-check, but I'm fairly certain I'm correct.

comment Which frames are more suited for PvE?
@Brian You are right, but those changes have also reduced my interest in the game. And for most of the intervening time, there wasn't even a PvP to worry about. So go ahead and post your own, I suppose.

comment From what game does the following music come from?
The song is Gourmet Race from Kirby games. Apparently, it's from Kirby Super Star for the SNES, specifically.

comment How do I make most use of the Adrenaline Shield?
Thanks, that's very informative. I suspect my biggest problems are rarely getting into anything remotely organised (I managed to blunder my way into one of the two good outfits on my server, though, so that should be getting fixed) and generally being bad at Planetside close-quarters. I did overestimate the passive regeneration difference, too: looks like the adrenaline shield is better in general combat than I thought it was.

comment What happens to aliens and items outside of captured UFOs?
@maxywb It should be always available. I did it once no later than November. This particular rule is mentioned in the UFO recovery mission instructional pop-up.

comment How important are efficient mining strategies?
I can't say about the whole game, but I know there will be upgrades that allow you to reach most ores you've managed to cut yourself off from. This situation in particular can be fixed.

comment Why are my parachutes failing to deploy?
That'd be the one, if I recall correctly. It's been a while since I last played Kerbals.

comment Why won't this dock produce grain?
Everything looks like it should work. Has the ship been refitted to carry grain?

comment Specify a particular path (track) for a train
Waypoints can help: they can be assigned to a train's orders like a station, but won't cause them to stop when passing through. Waypoints do, however, cost a little to establish and add some infrastructure maintenance fees.
