The X-Com Files / steam icon art?
« on: October 21, 2022, 04:31:04 am »
Hey just curious if anyone knows of or has images for the steam icons?  Not a huge deal, just looking for something cool to deck out my game

X-Piratez art would be cool too

The X-Com Files / Can't progress, only Outposts are spawning.
« on: October 12, 2022, 12:30:06 am »
I just got into the start of the alien invasion (jan 1999) and I seem to be stuck with Red Dawn progression.  I've researched operations MONTHS ago, but no bases ever spawned for the Red Dawn specifically.  Just RNG I guess.

However now that the invasion has started, it doesnt seem like anything other than outposts will spawn.  Ive reloaded several times, months back and just skipped everything through the months to see what pops and its never anything more than an outpost.  Ive done every Red Dawn research possible except for the coordinator and everything past him.  Is this an issue with the invasion starting?

I see in the wiki he can spawn in durathread factories.  Is there a way to get one up again?  I went to one but wasn't able to capture.  A stray minigun bullet took care of that and I haven't seen any since I've acquired the tech to make my thread.

XPiratez / Whats the inteded way to handle wounded troops?

Hi, new player here obviously.

So we only start with 6 troops, it doesn't appear theres any way recruit more easily.. so what is the intended way to handle troops getting wounded over time?  Just 'not get hit' ?  using entire ships of the sub par peasants?  I worry just skipping missions over 20 days to heal up my units is probably not expected.


The X-Com Files / is there an agent rank limit?

title.  More specifically, are you only ever allowed a certain number of 'Special Agents' etc?  I'm in Nov 1998 and none of my agents seem to be ranking up out of rookie anymore.  Considering how fast I got agents to senior, captain, etc.  It seems strange none of my regular agents are ranking up.  For example, I have a basic 'agent'  with  17 missions and 26 kills.   I kinda feel like there should have been a level up in there.  They actually have more kills than an agent currently at senior (but 1 less mission).  and none of my senior, captains, etc are climbing up to chief and they are well beyond the threshold where my current chief was when he ranked up. 

Also if there is a cap on ranks, whats the sweet spot of agents? seems having a large pool is of less value?

The X-Com Files / Some newbie Qs
« on: September 16, 2022, 07:52:51 am »
So im a few hours in around Jun 1997 and im finding my progress getting a little stuck.   I haven't been able to progress any on the cult stuff.  None of the tier 2 enemies for research are showing up that i can see (Red Dawn Lad etc.)

Ive watched some videos on youtube and im seeing people waaaay farther progressed than I am by this point.  With labs and such.  I don't feel im even close.

I'm also noticing I'm getting 4-5 missions every few days.   Am I really expected to do ALL of these missions?  after my 10 hours of play so far its getting really really tedius to still be fighting cult missions with just 2 guys (although now theres sometimes 4-5). 

Am I missing something here?  Did I miss some major tech thats suppose to progress me out of this?  I have the fast 2 man car, the researched 'Shotgun' with its 3 ammo types.  Pretty solid squad of agents and kevlar.  2 vans,, and the Xenobiologist, my first of the 4 required researchers.
