    Done. Interestingly, mafia doesn't seem to be aware that drinking it fails - it successfully removes it from inventory and everything. Not like it's a huge issue, and if I remember to verify if that's how other drinks work or if it's a part of special steel margarita code, I should write up a bug post on it.

    Anyways, BCA should skip getting SM on future GN runs. Yay. Meh.

    1) Okay, will check. You do have enough meat for the purchase? You said you have autoSatisfyWithNPCs on. How about autoSatisfyWithCoinmasters? If you have the problem happen again, check npc_price forged identification documents.
    2) Mafia will prefer to have familiars equipped as opposed to not, so if it's the only equipment available to it, it'll use it. If you do have generic gear though, it'll fight you.

    UR is the best when it comes to spending meat restoring HP/MP. Familiars that restore it automatically means much lower need for UR in-run, which is why I liked NZPR before we had standard, and the Cocoabo now. They both restore HP/MP and give you some bonus meat randomly.

    1) Yes, and also yes. Could there be a price other than 5k? That's just weird. Or whatever the amount is. It will likely be about a month before I ascend again, will try to remember to do the check npc_price thing, fingers crossed.
    2) I had both, even when I closeted generic gear BCA would remove the spigot. Which just makes no sense. Mafia recognizes the spigot and auto-equips it after BCA unequips it, but only if I'm adving "manually" with mafia.

    I've never used Bale's UR. Never saw a need for it when mafia has that aspect squared away.

    1) Maybe. Anything is possible, including mafia not being aware that you'd unlocked the market due to having a text mangler disrupt the parsing that marks it as available. That's the reason for using npc_price to verify that mafia knows it's unlocked.
    2) I think when mafia removes the gear, it's usually that it believes that it's not actually the gear for that familiar. But r17907 does show that as the proper familiar_equipment for the mimic, so... no clue. Maybe verify using the maximizer manually that mafia is actually telling it to strip it, and then give us which maximizer string is stripping it? Just tested and for me, it stays equipped, so unfortunately this isn't a case where I can just fix it without further information from you, because that problem doesn't happen for me. Sorry.

    3) Yes, mafia takes care of restoration, in the same way your feet can take care of getting you across the country. A car is usually more efficient though. Doesn't mean that the feet don't work, but...

    After all these exchanges there's a good chance something will nag at me when I ascend again, you know, that feeling you've forgotten something? And then I'll remember to check back here =D

    1) I've never heard of/used npc_price before, if that's all it needs that's even easier than buying the ID in-browser!
    2) That first part doesn't make any sense, if it didn't think the bung spigot went with the mimic, why would it ever equip it in the first place without being forced to? Regardless, will check that next time. No need to apologize, I appreciate that you take your time to try to help us at all.
    3) I was trying to not be offensive to anyone, especially Bale. When I did consider UR back in the day, there was something about it I didn't like. It's been way too long since then for me to even remember what that was. Which is extremely unhelpful to anyone but me. So, make fun of my feets all you like, they've always gotten me where I need to go.

    1) The npc_price function was added to let you know if an item can be purchased from an npc currently, and if so, at which price. If npc_price is greater than 0, then mafia knows that the market is unlocked. If npc_price is 0, then it believes that it's not available yet, and that's why BCA is failing. If npc_price is greater than 0, and you have enough meat for whatever it is, and buy forged identification documents gets them for you, then something is definitely wrong with BCA.
    2) Basically the start was just that current latest mafia doesn't strip it for me because mafia knows that it belongs. When familiars are new, mafia's maximizer will strip them of their gear. After mafia knows they go together, it shouldn't. Basically, when it's stripping your barrel, equip the spigot manually, switch to the maximizer tab or window, and re-run the most recent maximizer string and look at what it suggest. It should say that it is unequipping the spigot. When it does so, please post the maximizer string and we can sort out why +regen is a bad thing.
    3) It's a personal choice and that's fine. Use whatever you prefer; some people prefer to walk, some prefer faster transport. Both are legitimate options, but both also have their reasons for existing. If you start to reminisce about the length of a walking journey though, expect some people to suggest driving. If you mention you're using a restoration familiar rather than an item or meat drop familiar, expect some people to suggest using improved restoration scripts.

    1) Awesome! Thanks for the detailed explanation..
    2) Got it, will do when I get there.
    3) Free restoration is a bonus to me, I *was* using the mimic for stats/free booze. Because lazy.

    This whole experience has demonstrated to me I might as well suck it up and learn how to handle high monster level because it seems every other script out there is geared toward blinding speed only. No one cares about more casual players and laid back play styles. If only I wasn't so lazy...I don't even know where to begin to find out about how to deal with ridiculously high ML. Good times ahead, I'm sure!

    FWIW I have used Universal Recovery for a very long time as well as WHAM. With those in place BCC Ascend is pretty effortless. I find having Guide available lets me do things on my own when I want. zarqon solicited test subjects for a script of his that I still run. I especially like it because it will always pull, if available, rather than adventure for an item. I also run pandamonuim and nemesis scripts on occasion. Point being that if you want to be lazy and suboptiomal there is still support for that and at least one kindred spirit.
    You just vehemently agreed with me

    Regarding the fake id docs, I've run through six ascensions this week without any of them failing to buy them, so... definitely something with how your ascension ran, and it'll take some info from you to help avoid whatever was sad. Just noting that it's not an issue with current mafia and BCA.

    For my last 4-5 ascensions on 2 different accounts it has failed to buy the fake id docs. As soon as I see it, I open up the relay and just go right to it and buy it. Fully unlocked, have enough meat, everything. Although both of the accounts are doing Noobcore but I really don't see how that would affect anything.

    I've had 12 successful Noobcore fake id purchases in the past few weeks, so... something definitely up with either your accounts, their settings, or some part of how you have mafia or BCA configured...
