Maybe the reincarnation stuff could tie in with the doctor X storyline and the biolab you can get, or expand on it in some way. Something like this: at some point you get some sort of tech that lets you bring back your dead gals as something (whatever that something is), and then, when you get your hands on doctor X and the biolab, you can then upgrade said something to something sexybetter.

Dioxine's going to make several more characters Dr.X alike and each one will provide some bonuses. I hope it is somehow Solarius's dossier stuff inspired (when you get the dossier and a random mission occurs from a list. I've got a couple: some random scientist defence and an old invisible kickass ninja capture/kill from, actually, a lot of the possible ones)
And it's cool, it's really cool to have that types of missions: it generates randomness in the storyplot which is always broadening and narrowing, but always has the same bottlenecks you have to pass through to make the next step.

So... a single unique capture can give some tech, and different combinations of these captures might lead to a solution that we all waiting for: the cyborgs (but not the Syns, they are sexy and different)

Or you could hit "Q" twice while in the Geoscape. ;)
Yeee:) Cool. I didn't know that.

Hi, everyone!
Please remind me what techs I need to be able to start codex projects?

Hey! Two possible solutions:
1) Make any possible type of mission you haven't done yet. Look for the loot.
2) Open options, 'advanced', enable the "tech tree spoilers" => YES, then open the research screen, tap with middle mouse button on any unresearched topic, then press "Q", so the search line will appear (It's like Google, dude)
Type something related to the codex or drill, or hull or something that makes sense. And then look for the missing stuff within the tech branch.

Engine limitations... []
Retailation crew composition is defined by the modder via putting node ranks for the units spawned.
Binding to the player's progres may be done via research of certain tech, doing some sort of mission (e.g. base assault), shooting down the certain vessel and some other actions (hopefully).

Lyta, please, it's pretty hard to pull out the precise idea of your messages. And a reminder, once you've got the big red warning from the moderator.

Attack dogs can be bought without having a burrow/beast den.
It works only if you have no facility which gives you the cooresponding prison space.

You can buy AD and BH with and without corresponding prison space as they only depend on the spare space in the stores.

Ok. That's obvious from the story. The motives for the assaults and not nuking the Hideout are somewhat clear.
What is not understood:
- why would spartans, raiders, humanists etc. assault the Hideout with Plasma weapons, including the high-tier ones?
- could there be some sort of intermediate (native weapons) and very difficult scenarios as well (armored units only)? Why would Guild representatives (and other non-fighters) break into the hideout with the squad?
- it'll be nice if some units were able/forced to destroy the keytiles, as only the Extractors were destroyed a couple of times, not intended, with a reaction fire of Plasma Scorchers in many-many crackdowns.

The idea was to give ratmen some even less armored/techno vehicle😅

The really shitty vehicle, to be precise. Whereas Spartans could use these Humvees and BMP's (in the middle between). There is actually a mod with a heavy load of tanks.

I like to think that the reason the major factions don't want to completely ruin your main base is because they've been searching for it themselves.

This makes a lot of sense. Thank you for the suggestion. But it seems that majors don't have any problems with high tech, both in weaponry and in armor. The minors are indeed may look for the tech.

Also: search for hideout and basic reconnaissance assaults seem to be natural withing first 1-2 events for the each fraction, whereas some different strategy should be involved right after.

But after that the dark ones basically disappear.

Lore friendly version is that dark ones are in Earth for centuries, as UAC has gone in the middle (end) of the XXI century.
The strange thing is that Marsec still allows their teleports on the Mars satellites to function if they still function indeed.
This fraction has the unleashed potential of the lore development as they neither related to Star Gods, nor Shadowmasters. I thought the Red Mage plot will continue in that direction, not in the Z-Phases investigation. 

And yeah we really miss some plasmagun spiders, demon mages and archidemons!

The chances could be like, 65% for a ghoul thing, 35% of something better, or something. Whatever the "something better" thing ends up being, it should be better enough to warrant the player spending enough time and resources to eventualy get it.

Every chance-depending thing tends to end up in an abuse.
Like me buying 1000 Freak gals just to get 40 with 115 TU and all other stats almost maxed.

Again it seems like you havent played in a while, OXC lately changed their behaviour to actively seek and destroy base key tiles.

It is deserved to have variety in that type of mission as it is a major part of the game, if not the largest one.

Had like 20 crackdowns in the latest version, most from the major fractions.
They do not tend to destroy keytiles. They pretty much move to the loctions and stay there facing the same direction all the time.

What could be suggested:
- suicide squads loaded with HE, that move to the keytiles and activate BOOM (robots or fanatics for different fractions)
- was mentioned and accused false: but still no single blaster launch made by enemy in the whole compaign.
- earlygame: the fractions are curious who are piratez and send the medium-equipped  shturm-squads with native weaponry;
- midgame: as it is right now;
- lategame: the crackdown's major function is to undermine or squelch the Player's progress, making him lose funds, and not the constant supply of the plasma weapon parts.
With that, it is seen purposeful to start alter the strategy from gals-killing to base destroy and replace weak weapons with mostly HE ones (plasma scorcher, hellerium rockets launcher, blaster launcher, HWP with HE etc.), multiple HWP, mostly heavily armored units.
- There should be some strategy that AI can implement to prevent the corner-abuse, i.e.: if the player's unit spotted (reaction fire made once) in the previous turn, HE launch to the reachable place 2-3 tiles away from the spotted unit is made.

... there could be a chance to fuck up and turn them into degenerate ghouls or something.

In a usual compaign I have like 300-400 Gals dead.. What will be the suggested chance to raise a Degenerate Ghoul instead of a cyborg? I'm looking forward to get a Legion of the Damned.
