Overall price of individual crew members has been reduced, but some of their overall effectiveness has gone down as individuals (now requiring multiple crewmates of a given job for maximum effect).

The old method of handling multiple crewmates of the same job type has been eliminated. Now, each job type has a maximum number that can be effective. In cases where you have more than that maximum number of crewmates of a given job, only the most skilled crewmates (up to that maximum number) will contribute.

Diplomat smuggling and Trader salvaging should be more clearly shown in the Crew Logs. Hits to crew morale have been raised. Raises to crew morale have been reduced. Crew now gain a morale boost when they land/take off from a Skyland. Crew will gain a higher morale raise when landing on their home skyland. They will take a morale hit when they take off from their home skyland.

TypesEdit

TraderEdit

Traders help find the best deals. They reduce the buy and sell tax of transactions and can salvage after a combat to increase your bounty. The maximum number of effective traders you can have is 2. Traders level up with trade points.

DiplomatEdit

Diplomats increase the payout of missions, reduce bribe costs, and can negotiate to prevent some cargo loss when raided by pirates. The maximum number of effective diplomats you can have is 2. Diplomats level a small amount with flight, combat, and trade points, and a large amount from reputation points. For every 5000 points of "reputation points" you earn, your Diplomat will gain a chunk of experience.

NavigatorEdit

Navigators can plot courses that either keep you out of trouble or throw you headfirst into it. While their risky/safe flights may initially take longer than a regular flight, they'll get faster as they level up. The maximum number of effective navigators you can have is 1. Navigators level up with flight points.

MechanicEdit

Mechanics help your plane's condition from dropping too quickly and keep it together during combat. Mechanics can also help scavenge for gun mods after combat. The maximum number of effective mechanics you can have is 2. Mechanics level up with combat and flight points.

PersonalityEdit

There are five different personality types. Chesterfield Taft released some information on a few of the details.[1] Each personality has it's own benefits and drawbacks. Crew race determines a crewmate's chance of being a particular personality in a somewhat subjective (by predetermined) manner; races with pictures that look happy tend to be Eager or bold, calmer looking crew tend to be Mentors or calculating, and upset or disinterested looking races are likely to be calculating or grizzled.

Personality does not affect experience gain; only morale raises and hits. Crew will gain a higher morale raise when landing on their home skyland. They will take a morale hit when they take-off from their home skyland.

The crew quotes below can help identify personality.
