Re: Brainstorm: Alien Motivation

Re: Suggestion: Allow Sharpshooters to equip rifles (SMGs)

There's a mod with Halo 5 weapons that has a Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR). It's basically an assault rifle with longer range stats. For awhile the mod was allowing my sniper to equip it, but it seems to have changed. I loved using it on my snapshot snipers as it really seemed to fit their role.

Re: The Issue with Yellow Alert and Engagements

It sounds like the deeper root of the problem is losing too many important soldiers can end a campaign. Addressing ways to recover in mid to late campaign from a squad wipe or top tier soldier losses might reduce the effect of yellow alert. I have a feeling the scamper is just to make up for short c...

Re: Which rooms to build first

Probably someone already said this.

The workshop provides power so if you build GTS and AWC first and are lucky enough to have an exposed power coil in a good spot, you can put the workshop there which will be enough to supply two more vital rooms rather than a power generator.

Re: Shadow Ops(LW2)

I have not, but I've been curious too. Once I actually win a damned game, I'll definitely try it. Though I will probably play with both lw2 classes and shadow ops. The holo target scout seems like a cool idea.

Re: [General Feedback] 1.2 Commander campaign – feedback on classes, missions, and Psi

What if PSI was treated like an AWC perk rather than a separate class? You would train your shinobi rather than a rookie. There could be some eligibility requirement like high will our something else.

Re: How are people liberating regions so fast?

Use a scientist as a haven adviser in the region you are going to liberate along with a majority of personnel on Intel. That will get you very good infiltration times, even on supply raids. Doing those will keep the strength down. Research basic research then lasers. Also contact two other regions f...

Re: An alternative way of handling infiltration and mission types

Low infiltration missions offer no concealment start and actually let Advent possibly get concealment from you. Don't know if the Advent AI is smart enough to deal with that though. Also, a deeper fog so less known about the map. High infiltration missions reveal more of the map, letting you pre-pla...

Re: what affects environmental damage?

So what is occurring when your shinobi slashes a badie for 18 and in the process destroys the wall he was going to take cover behind? Or your ranger shoots down at an advent trooper and blows out the facade that was providing half cover. Yet grenades don't do this much damage.
