Work In Progress / Re: Brainstorming for slower technological progression

1. add a 2nd level of ballistic weapon that you can research after the "Alien Alloy" tech
2. Laser Weapon requires the "Elerium 115" tech
3. add a 3rd level of ballistic weapon requiring both "Laser Weapon", "Elerium115" and a new "Elerium powered ballistic" tech, ala 2mm EC from Fallout
4. having all of this unlock the "basic Plasma" tech, then "Plasma Pistol"+"Plasma Rifle". Unlock "Advanced Plasma"
5. "advanced plasma" unlocks "Heavy Plasma"

Wouldn't it be simpler?

To add difficulty, the loss of the civilians would be hugely punished by a point loss. Like, hugely, mainly because those civilians are the most important people in the country. So the mission could be successful and easily end up with a huge amount of negative points. Think something like -100 per civilian, with a dozen of civilians in the building. I agree with you for the rest, though I haven't played the new one.

Would that be that hard to implement? My knowledge in those kind of things are close to zero.

I think this should be the result of some kind of unique mission. I always thought pact were signed under threat and mind control, so it would make it impossible to actually willingly nullify the pact.
The special mission would work like a mix of a terror mission and a base attack. basically a big human made Pentagon-like building, with mind controlled politicians inside and one Alien race squad+ one Ethereal. The goal would be to secure the area without killing civilian (who would have the same AI as Chrysallids but no weapon, so they would just try to block you. Also the Aliens don't attack them).
The mission would trigger if you do a lot of activity in the traitorous region, you would receive a message that says that your intel managed to learn the reason behind the pact.
