Re: Incredibly basic question

Do you have robojumper's squad select mod? if so, you just click on the soldiers and drag left or right.

Ufopaedia! I missed you! I luv u!

Why did you have to go away like that? Don’t you know how much I need you? Have I not told you that I love you, that I need, that it’s hopeless without you.
Please don’t ever leave me again, I don’t think I can beat these aliens without you...

Re: The bias of Not Created Equally

I've noted this trade off as well. Didn't do anything quite so scientific.
I noted that in 5 or so restarts I was sacrificing aim (most important stat).

Re: Assault class - how to effectively used them?

I had the same problem. It is always a temptation to run up and shotgun the problem away... Then another pod activates and it is even farther away and your assault is exposed... ugh. So what I do is try to think about the assault as a defensive unit. Disorient with the arc thrower, or get close and ...

Re: Grenadiers suck.

I like grenadiers. I take one on most every mission and consider only a little less valuable when incendiary is nerfed to 75% burn. I do all left hand branch except for chainshot and full kit. And all my specialists have airdrop. I wear ablative most of the time, so with heavy ordinance at corporal ...

Re: Squad-wide weapon/armour upgrade

I would really like to see the costs fall off with each purchase until eventually it's free. Or alternatively the cost doesn't decline but after buying say 15 predator armors, it becomes a free upgrade. If you want to be really slick about it each weapon tier would be grouped, such that buying a las...

Re: L/I Victory Campaign Summary

Psi is amazing. With the trial by fire officer perk you absolutely can get them up and effective by Aug...

Re: Combatives fix

I agree that the preferred fix is a tweak to Muton AI making melee less likely. Say 90% chance they melee. Would result in much the same survival chance, though. Also regarding enemies hitting you through combatives in v1.4, I once parked a shinobi inbetween 2 mutons, adjacent to each. Combatives pr...

Re: Bug on Shen's Gift Last Stage. Game stalls out.

So I loaded from the a previous save, and played through the level. And everything went fine.
I assume the bug is caused by a very specific event. Perhaps overdrive skill on spark, or something else.

Bug on Shen's Gift Last Stage. Game stalls out.

I am having a problem with the 3rd and last stage of Shen's Gift. The game stalls out. Usually when the Sectopod breaks out, but sometimes sooner. It feels like the the game is slowing down then gets stuck. Details: v1.4 (Alien Hunters disabled/turned off) Using Steam, and auto-update. Current mods ...

Re: Retaliations

Another thing would be to allow 8 soldiers for the defence. Does anyone know if this can be done via .ini? Hey I think you can bring 8. I accidentally only took 6 (I think the robojumber mod centers the 6 slots and I didn't see the 2 empties), but then did the defense with 8. I am playing on iron m...

Re: Retaliations

I had a "Defense" type retaliation in a strength 3 region. This was very early on, which made it pretty hard to respond as shooting classes are weaker in the early game. It pretty much killed my campaign. The "Defense" type retaliations used to be too easy. Now they are brutal. ...

Where do you want me to mail the save to? Also, I did a little testing and I think I found the issue. First I tried to recreate it with a save from before. And it didn't recreate. But all I was doing was scanning. Not flying around. So I started flying around, and that did it. When the avenger is in...

Re: Dark Event completing during infiltration to stop it.

I have a save, but I think it may be consistently reproducible.
I've seen it happen twice.
Basically any mission to prevent a dark event just needs to let the timer hit zero.
The dark event will be made active before the mission is prompted to start.

This is very irritating. I was about to run a mission to prevent a dark event, but the event has already been added to the active list?!? I think the dark event is added when the mission timer hits zero, and doesn't wait for you to actually run the mission. For these missions you cannot wait for the...
