Re: Announcement regarding LW2+WotC

Sad to hear that PI won't be making this happen themselves (as they are experts in the matter) but hopefully some other modder will pick up the task and make it a reality. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision to make for anyone involved. Like many others, I'm looking forward to Terra Invicta, so I'm ...

Re: Scientist in demand

Black Market usually has at least one Scientist & Engineer for hire per month, in my experience. This option exists specifically to address the case you're stuck in, where no Scientists are dropping from missions.

Re: Is there a target preview style mod for long war 2? If so which one is best to use with long war 2?

I don't know if this comes from LW2 or vanilla, but I know that when I move my cursor around to move a soldier, a little red dot appears beside the health bar of any alien the soldier will be able to see from the space my cursor is currently sitting on. Doesn't show flanks explicitly, though.

Re: First death, incredibly soured.

@Tac1: One thing I haven't seen you mention in this thread: What difficulty are you playing on? If the answer is anything other than "Rookie" my advice would be to lower the difficulty and try again. Seriously. There's no shame in playing the game on Rookie. LW2 is balanced to be HARD on the EASIEST...

Re: Insanity

I missed a 100% hit from my point blank assault last night. LOLed. FYI... I have 10% graze band.. I've had the same thing happen to me, and I keep the graze band at 0. Apparently there's still a chance for it to trigger if the roll is exactly on the money, and it's annoying how frequently that appa...

Re: WotC LW2 Idea: Sparks

SHIVs in XCom1 didn't level or improve (other than upgraded gear) right? Correct, they did not. Although SPARKs in XCOM2 feel more analogous to MECs from XCOM1, which did gain new abilities over time. Plot-wise, I guess the idea is that, given more time to conduct his research, Raymond Shen was abl...

Guys, lets not drift away from the question. Do the devs get inspiration from these forums?

Assign a new soldier as adviser. Soldier advisers contribute to the Recruit job in addition to searching for Facel...

Re: Recovery

Agree with Steel - Long War encourages you to build a deep roster of soldiers, not just level up one full squad worth. As long as you do that, you can recover from most losses. It might take some time, mind you - setbacks is setbacks - but you should be able to keep going. In my last play-through I ...

Re: How to install previous versions of LW 2

There are a couple of Long War-related options menu entries that don't appear until after you've loaded into the game. This may have been fixed in 1.5, but it was always this way prior.

Re: How would you want the Skirmisher adapted for LW2?

Aren't the bullpups pretty comparable to smg's in stats? I don't know the stats as I don't have WOTC yet, but this was my thought when I first heard there was a "bullpup" weapon in WOTC: Maybe just remove the LW2 SMG and let bullpups take their place? Re-use the assets for SMGs in the "missing" tec...

Sounds unbalanced, probably it can create a flow of free supplies. Maybe with some house rules, like "no more than 1 alien per mission extracted". I need to think about it. I thought so too but then I started using it and found that given the situation of each mission it's kind of hard to extract m...

4)Soldiers seem to be panicking even though they have not been injured. In otherwords they got hit for 1 point, and it doesn't get through the ablative armor. Is this a feature or a bug? It's a feature! Even if the armor stopped it, I would imagine taking a plasma bolt to the chest would be pretty ...

AFAIK, assuming the shot hits , it will do damage normally. LR doesn't provide any damage reduction.

That is only what I am saying, you have to do the final assault before you can research for all, except maybe if you are lucky enough to find facility leads that would reduce the avatar bar. If all you want to do is stop the Avatar Project so you can take your time at high levels, there is this mod...

Mod them up and upload them to Nexusmods/Steam Workshop so we can play around with them and I'm guessing you'd get more feedback.

Mods downloaded from the Workshop do not appear in the DLC list. They should appear in a list on the launch window (above the big green "Play Game" button), which is where you select the ones you want to play with before launching the game.
