Re: The Passage of Stars?

I am looking forward to reading the third novel in "The Passage of Stars" series, I enjoyed the first two books very much. I also noticed the other day that there was a C. Lumpkin among the crew of the CSA Hunley which reminded me to come post about finishing the second book in your series. I hope t...

Yeah, Longwar and Longwar 2 make XCOM worth playing. Without the LW Mods the games are just another one and done.

Re: The Passage of Stars?

A note to say that I found the novel "Through struggle the stars" a very entertaining read. The story is interesting and the book left me eager to begin the next novel "The desert of stars". With my extremely limited free time it takes me a longtime to read and finish a book, I have to carefully cho...

Re: The Passage of Stars?

I finally found the time to start reading Johnny's novel "Through struggle the stars" I was instantly struck by how easy the book is to read. And I mean "instantly". It took maybe a page or two and I began to think that this is a real nice comfortable writing style. By the time I was through reading...

Re: Movies to watch while playing Long War

I just ordered the first season DVD of "Expanse". The trailer I viewed looked interesting. I also favor Aliens 2 and Alien Resurrection and of course Serenity.

Both books arrived when scheduled and I was pleased with both. They are of good quality and I think that they are both titled interestingly. At the moment I have two books going Panzer Leader II and Life in a Medieval Castle. My two new sci-fi titles are next on my reading list. I am looking forward...

Re: Mission loading time

Push the "caps lock" key when the loading starts. It gives Windoze a loading priority boost which helps quite a bit. You will notice the difference in load times from the very first use of the key.

Re: Avatar progress to fast?

I don't think the startegy layer needs much tweaking. If you are that far in time, you should ask yourself what you are doing wrong, when the lib chain can be completed on legend difficulty by the end of april. The first liberation should always be your primary concern. And with Advent busy enough,...

I play on veteran and also think it is too fast. Especially dark events that add 1 or 2 pips to the counter every couple of weeks in areas I have no contact with. I keep hoping somebody will make a mod to slow it down, but so far no luck. No luck on finding a mod to reduce or eliminate the dark eve...

My current game is in the month of September (9/22/2035) and I still have not received the mission (s) to capture a territory. I'm pretty sure my current game of the past month or so is already over except the screen saying so. It' pretty disheartening thinking about if I will start a new game or no...

Re: Upgrading a power plant to elerium conduit.

140 views and no reply's leads me to believe this issue is likely caused by a mod. or mods. conflict. There are a few others on Reddit that have the same issue. I did find a work around by not upgrading the power plant (s) with the first tier upgrade and just use the elerium conduit upgrade when it ...

Re: Lets nerf armor shredding

The first is relevant, as the various difficulties do indeed play rather differently. The others seem more like just elitist nonsense that shames a player for not being as skilled as others here on the forums (and being a Legend Ironman player is a high bar indeed!) When players give feedback on a ...

Upgrading a power plant to elerium conduit.

I have a power plant built on a power coil. I upgraded the power plant to improve production but now it will not accept an elerium conduit upgrade. From what I have read online this is because once you upgrade once then the elerium conduit option is no longer available. I usually build a second powe...

That helps a lot, thank you!

I haven't tossed the flare early as of yet, I usually fight off the reinforcements until the turns click down. After you're post I will sometimes change this behavior.

Extraction verse Evacuation...am I doing it wrong?

As I complete (check off) the goals in the upper left corner it often comes down to Extract the team. Does that I mean I have one of the team toss a flare for extraction or is that an evacuation that carries some type of penalty? I have tried waiting for an extraction a few times and have been hamme...

The downside is that it was in western Europe with a Advent strength of 9. Europe is where I built my first radio towers, I do not know if that h...
