I always hated doing base defenses because I am extremely impatient and I hate waiting for the AI when/to attack.

So unfortunately, smoke abuse and using your best high TU/reactions (preferably) scout for your other gals to snipe from out of line of sight.

And now I believe base defenses have 5? levels (or am I confusing with assaulting enemy bases?) so, haven't really tested that.

Even after you've wiped out most of their enemies... they tend to hide/hang back deep in the hangars and then it just gets silly after that.

One other tactic I was somewhat successful with was having two or three high melee/strength gals near the chokepoint to be able to dash behind an enemy, hit once or twice with a melee and be able to get back into a room to block Line of Sight, but it was lots of micromanaging.

Congrats on the article, Dioxine! Glad to see your work getting some spotlight!

XPiratez / Re: Piratez starting guide for new players

It has been my intent to sort of coallate the information here in the forums to build out these pages, and it has also sparked me to start my own campaign to gain more first hand experience.

I had the same idea for awhile but since I haven't had time to really play and SO MUCH has changed so quickly, I can't help but feel adding anything from past versions would just frustrate/disappoint new players of new versions as strategies/"bugs" are patched out or adjusted.

I'd love to jump in this conversation but all my knowledge is horribly out of date and trying to focus on my mid-terms.

Soon, Piratez, I shall return for the summer!

I'm hoping once summer break comes along to give this a solid playthrough again.

Still no Soldier Diaries/Commendations yet, right?

Upgraded based on my experience? Wait what? I don't recall using that stuffs too extensively...

How am I influencing so much with so little? Meridian, it's all rigged I tell you! After all the work you're pouring in!

XPiratez / XCOM 2 - Perhaps a Piratez mod is in order?
« on: January 31, 2016, 06:02:34 am »
Considering the huge amount of moddability with XCOM 2 and the whole underground / on the run aspect; could make for a really decent port!

Sorry to hear that Draco, but I understand.  I have been really enjoying your series and will probably finish it this week.

Cheers, Ivan :D

Honestly, you have no idea how often I read your comments and think, "I'm letting Ivan down :(" and wish I had the opportunity to record more. But yes, I look(ed) forward to your (nearly) every day comment on the videos.

I am planning to see if I can do once a week (Fridays morning to midday ish?) but my son has some surgeries coming up, so hoping for the best.

Beautiful!

Just wish I had time to play with all the new toys... unfortunately, had to do a hard stop with some life stuff that came up.

That looks beautiful!

Yeah, no template was made yet for the direct vessel pages. And yes, the plan would be to have all the information on the article (similarly to the unit pages).

I'm wondering if making dedicated templates for each vessel/unit would be easier to maintain (update one page full of the details per version, rather than trying to update every page?). Just not sure how to implement it better.

Now that is a beautiful rendition of upgrading the armor visually as it is done gameplay mechanically.

More armors like that would be perfect!

Isn't there something in OXCE that can reduce HP when used? So couldn't the Popper have its main weapon cost X HP (whatever it's HP is) to use, thus exploding itself in melee range?

Essentially, a Chryssalid with a OXCE melee weapon that self-inflicts health damage proportionate to the user's health, and then on death (like a Zombie), produce an explosion?

I like it... except for I have no idea how that's protective (unlike Warrior).

Maybe this should be swapped with Leather Armor and Leather Armor can be an alternate costume for Warrior?

OpenXcom Extended / Re: Meridian's resources and mods for X-PirateZ

The quality of life improvements are insane; to think I even inspired something!

Yeah, I am almost 100% going to start a new campaign once Yankes updates to a more recent Nightly that contains Soldier Diaries so I can use all these things.

Maybe this will help to raise your spirits... finally I had the time to make an armor inspired by one of your designs. Couldn't go beige, because there's no beige in X-Com (except Interception/Geoscape). But R&B had never failed me before (Red & Black). Whatever is going on with you, your fan art is the best this mod ever received.

Damn, that looks really good.
