    I legit would rather save the children, if nothing else to keep the meme of never acquiring the anti tank mines

      We barely use the regular mines on my runs, I feel like the anti tank mines are pretty situational

    i already have a pet theory:

    • the sick children are sick because they’re subjected to secret medical trials.
    • rescuing the children means rescuing the research which means secret new booster.
    • bonus: the children will die either way.

    now, the booster doesn’t need to be good. it would just be really funny if the immaterial benefit of saving the children turns out to be materially beneficial in an almost eviler way than forsaking the children for the antitank mines. (pls give fire resistance)

    now, if the booster is bad, that would be thrice as funny: antitank mines forsook and children sacrificed, for shitty research that amounted to nothing really helpful.

    this all could also explain how they’ve managed to survive so long.

    Wow, an ethical dilemma! We’ve gone this long without completing an AT mine major order, what’s the harm in going a little longer imo.
