So sometime around april I get these jeeps/tanks on the geoscape that move at 125 speed.  I assumed they weren't meant to be destroyed at this point since I never can seem to get their bootypedia page in any games I've played, but am I just missing out on a lot of missions by ignoring these things?

They are bandits/raiders. You get car parts and some low level captives you can research some stuff with. Their "crash" sites have 1-2 armored cars on them so bring anti armor weapons.

This might be a bug of I'm missing a trigger. I'm trying to build hunter killer/ STR_INTERCEPTOR. I have contacts: ship junkyard and the dep for it. I should be able to see old fighter hull/ STR_FIGHTER_WRECKAGE (bootypedia says i have the tech here as well) in the buy menu. It is not there. Going into the rule file and removing dependencies on the component does not make it appear.

What am I missing?

The stair tile on the Fortuna in the red box cannot be stepped on. None of my peasants can walk on that tile.

The grey codex gives a gnome now. You can use it as a reusable research engine and recruit then or later.

I've never seen a synth  :'( :'( :'(

Like is it the cold damage? How do they think space suits work? Lol.

Hey I just started a new game (like a week or so ago) and I just got my first 0-G mission on this play through. All my peasants are going unconscious in 3 turns. What changed? Do space suits not have oxygen any more??? (yes they are in standard peasant/human space suits)

I found the alien loadout by rank file. Is it possible that I skipped over the drop or should you keep seeing them over time? I'm pre-1999 and have taken down a battleship and captured a sectoid leader and commander.

I only use them as a low mass in case of surprise robot weapon.

If there were better options for increasing research throughput in the beginning then you might run into missions earlier where they would be needed.

When does this mission respawn? I've built a ghost tank and now I've never had another mission with a ghost :(

When do alien alloy welders show up? Is there a specific mission? I have almost everything researched that doesn't require improved labs.

I was trying to look for this answer but got spoiled on something so I stopped:

What are the differences generally between the male and female tech branch options?

So my last game that I started was on J8 or something. I usually have a couple 8 man teams peasants, catgirl/gremlins/loknards, and slave soldiers. Mainly for flavor. I modded in doomguy armor as being acceptable in stealth missions and melee punching through walls. I just play rip'n'tear on mansion missions. It adds so much to the game. But my serious business force was usually just power-armor Ubers. (ironically I had an all power armor force yet hadn't even gotten only satellite raid missions)

So starting a new game yesterday I get to the male soldiers or just Ubers option.

What am I locking my self out of by picking either? I really want to have a transport ship of suicide soldiers all dressed up as doom guys, but I don't know what picking either of these does so eh? Part of this was text in the bootypedia entry that made it sound like I wouldn't get a dojo/training room if I went with male soldiers. I saw that the random assigned tech values to complete the girl tech was 27 and male soldier tech was 3 so I'm guessing slave soldiers is the intended path.

Some of the newer farm tiles have 0 walking/running TU cost.  It was one of the death and taxes map sets. it happened at the start of a run and I kept playing so no save, sorry.

So how many enemy personnel like espers, academy scientists, etc don't appear in missions yet? I ask as I see they added vampires in J4 (again never seen them). I'm going to start a new run today as my current play through feels like it is in a failure state (as described before as non-progress nothing changes month to month etc) and I just saw J4 is out.

A menu or pop up that shows:
Things you should have researched.

Apparently a bunch of minor things like live celatids etc I missed researching in the swarm of items you get.

That or a "next step" research items list.

This along with ways to cut down the mission selection late game so you can have more focused/progressive gameplay. I have never seen a baron of hell even though I have been playing on and off for a year+ IRL (with different starts etc). I do like the randomness but it needs to ramp up in difficulty as time goes on and old missions need to disappear for that to happen.

The starting-a-new-mission-surprise experience is my favorite thing in Piratez and OpenXCom in general. Dropping into a mission against threat I've never seen before (literally) is super fun and creates the most chaotic and difficult scenarios.

Other Gripes:
-continued armor options for auxilia or some way for me to turn my spec-ops Loknoids and Peasants into advanced units
-some way to tell if an enemy can see me. It never feels that camouflage is working
-camouflage never seems to work
- Romance option for tornado rocket mortar. Also known as the one weird trick architecture and infantry hate.
