XPiratez / "Getting Started" for /r/xcom
« on: June 16, 2016, 10:00:41 pm »
I've been getting a few "How i get started" messages on /r/xcom. I'd like to put together a little "getting started" wiki they can link to. Is there anything I could crib from?

XPiratez / Getting higher-level ships
« on: May 31, 2016, 08:19:03 am »

I'm a few years into my game and stuck. I've researched a ton of the tech tree (up to Plasma and Gauss, can't manu clips tho), have great armor, can obliterate anything that moves.

But I've never gotten high enough level Reticulan (I've rarely seen them), Church (ditto), Star God, or Trader operatives.

It almost feels like there's a bug -- I've taken out 7 Academy bases in SE Asia and 90% of all missions spawn there for the past year or two.  I'm on .98E

Is there a way I can hack in some ships/missions to make this happen?

XPiratez / Chem/Acid Q
« on: May 23, 2016, 04:04:07 am »
Hey fam,

Quick question: does all chem damage work as 'acid'? In other words, stripping armor? Trying to understand how to tackle those damnable Mercenaries (last attempt w/lasers and gauss used a lot of exploding bricks and ended most of my A-team out of commission for 45 days).

XPiratez / Weapons Guide & UI Mod
« on: April 27, 2016, 09:20:10 pm »

So, I totally adore this game. My god, it's brilliant.

Is there a mod which shows accuracy/range and damage in the inventory screen when I click on a weapon on the equip screen? I'm going nuts trying to remember bootypedia or switching to a wiki.

Also, is there a handy guide for n00bs on "rules of thumb" for which weapons to use? I'm not totally sure what ninja stars do that's different from fuso knives, for instance. Or why to ever use flintlock weapons when capured/black market ones are cheap. And when should I carry an autopistol vs. smg. I know part of the experience is exploring, I just wouldn't mind a little wisdom ;)

XPiratez / Mac tips?

Hi! I got hooked on my PC at home, but when I travel I'm on Mac. Any way to get this running in OS X? <3
