Offtopic / Turn 20 Question
« on: January 20, 2017, 01:31:06 pm »
Over the years, I have seen and witnessed myself many reports of the aliens gaining full knowledge of the battlefield after turn 20, including but not limited to leaving the UFO on schedule.

While there are plenty of reports of this happening, there seems to be no actual information on what actually happens.  The crunch, if you will.  Do the aliens gain the Aggression stat?  Just knowledge of troop positions?  Does it affect the AI decision making at all?  Any feedback is appreciated. 

XPiratez / Quick lore question
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:42:56 am »
So downloaded the mod and been having a real blasty-blast but I have a question about the lore. 

I fully read the starting bootypedia when I began, and the readme included with the game.  So I got that, in-game, we are escaped mutants trying to survive as pirates and rebuild knowledge starting from the ground up.  However, while researching various things and gradually building knowledge back from bows and arrows to apples and wine trying to get the technology for a workshop when a research topic for "Cloaking Device" was unlocked.  Even more, once researched, the entry assumed I already knew about the cloaking devices "we" were using, or used, or something.  While I can infer that apparently we are using a cloaking device on all our ships to not be caught, and that it's an explanation for the gameplay limitation of not having OUR craft be intercepted, my question is what exactly are we, the player, supposed to know about our gal's "Cloaking" when we start out?
