Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #5: Nations, Part 2

I'm not quite sure what you are asking. The game models only large-scale strategic nuclear "barrages" on Earth, and the a nuclear action uses multiple real-world nuclear weapons. So yes, both the USA and Russia have many hundreds of strategic nukes, but the game doesn't model them individually, but ...

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #5: Nations, Part 2

How much can we, as players, pool several nations' resources? Pooling multiple nations' resources is fundamental to gameplay, so much so it's automated-- that is, the resources you accumulate (money, boost, mission control) are drawn from everywhere you have control points. As multiple nations pool...

Re: Crash to desktop with new .NET runtime 4.7.2 (SOLVED - corrupt savegame)

There's no common thread between these errors. It's a generic error message.

The last part of Launch.log suggests errors in Robojumper's Squad Select.

Re: How to reset assigned soldier skills in save files

I looked at the code that handles respec times and it should be working. LW2 added a multiplier for respeccing that adds time for each rank the soldier has, but 0 times that modifier should still of course be zero. Are you sure you modded the right version of the file? Should be here: \Steam\steamap...

Re: How to reset assigned soldier skills in save files

You might have an easier time using the AWC's respec option. You should be able to make it free and take no time via ini modding, then fix your troopers, then return the AWC to normal values.

Re: How's the game doin'?

Many thanks. We're still exploring various publishing options, so there's no Kickstarter as this very moment. But I think we'll decide really soon which direction we're going. Stay tuned.

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #5: Nations, Part 2

The problem, I think, is within the mechanics we already have -- control points, alliances, regions, national policies -- there wouldn't be much more game by creating some kind of game element that's not quite a nation as we've defined it. Between the EU, NATO and the ESA, I think the game-relevant ...

You're right that we have had to engineer a plausible storyline for why they have to ramp up their capabilities in the Solar System. I can't really give our explanation without spoiling too much of the game.

An alien activity won't start before the conditions to start it are fully met. The activity here is composed of two sequential missions, so the first mission (the supply mission) won't begin until the 8-strength minimum is hit.
