    True, I haven't played in a while, so all of my experiences were from the old helix

    How are gasmasks obtained? Just spawns or some convoluted method?

    They dont spawn

    could only get them if an event character sold them at the (currently) defunct caravan which was like a monthly rebel market that sometimes had new/special stuff but has been largely abandoned now

    or through events, which is the only way to obtain them now (if you’re really lucky)

    crafting them isnt possible, there is no recipe and you don’t even get them when breaking down existing gas mask suits either to my knowledge

    well that sucks
    Ok, uhhh, what are the odds of making a new rebel group that doesn't just die out?
    I've got an idea for one and I think that it's a nice idea
    no bias here

    also is it anything post 2008 is not lore, or is it anything post July (?) 2012 that isn't lore anymore.

    Yeah.

    I was always a fan of the longer timeline idea but Alyx sort of confirmed that the occupation was more of a 'slow burn' after the war anyway than The Combine instantly slapping their dick down, so there isn't too much difference.

    Do scanners randomly snap a picture of you or do they always have a reason

    Seen it happen randomly a few times- When I still had the scn whitelist, it used to be a bug of sorts. Since you're actually controlling an NPC, rather than having the scanner model be that of your own, the NPC sometimes takes control in ways of snapping random pictures, or auto-piloting if the user is afk for too long.

    How can I see in detail how the CA faction works because from what I have seen it is a very difficult faction that you should know roleplay well.
    I plan in the future (maybe) to create a female CA character but I have no idea how the CA faction works I only know they deal with politics and I don't have the idea for more things they do.
    I have many questions about the faction and those being like :
    What should i do to be active on the faction?
    Wich rank is the highest that kind of rules the city?
    Can i be a CA in every city with the same character or each city has their own CAs and every time we relocate i have to create a new CA character ?
    And more and more questions.....

    Some have told me that I have to learn these things myself in the game by observing how they work or what they do but it is impossible because they stay inside the nexus or where they stay and whatever they do they work in secret
