First time commenting on BBG.
Let's assume I draw a minor failure for life support. I have a mechanic on board so the minor failure becomes a success. At the end of the year does my mechanic consume 2 supplies - 1 for the life support repair and 1 for the end of the year? What about rendezvous? Do I treat it the same way if I have a pilot?
Also, just wanted to say this game is awesome! Love it!
I believe the mechanic's ability changes a minor failure to a success without consuming a supply.
One supply would be consumed if you repaired a damaged component. Another supply would be needed to feed up to five astronauts at the end of the year.
In your example, I think you would just consume one supply for Life Support at the end of the year.
Pilots improve the outcome of Landing and Rendezvous outcome cards by 1. So a major failure would become a minor failure, and a minor failure would become a success. These abilities do not stack, so two pilots cannot turn a major failure into a success. The pilot ability does not consume a supply.
Glad you are enjoying the game. It is easily one of my favorites!
I haven't played outer planets yet and I won't until I nail down the base game. This is also my favorite game.
Thanks for your quick reply, Will.
