There was an idea on discord to maybe be able to recruit something similar to syndicate super soldiers - maybe that could be way to do it?
Or make a switch that after some research/event range of values for soldier abilities are different (but I do not know if it is possible in engine)

Interrogating deep one should be easier than getting cyberweb portal I think it is way up in cyberweb arc.
What mission are you refering to?

For cyber armour you need:
Tactical Neural Impant for this you need cyberweb and magma missions
Personal Armour - dont remember what you need for this one :(
Durathread (this one you have)

Hi!

I can help you with some things as I am also playing similary to you :)
Quote
Now, Cults. I've seen around this forum claims that you should strive to remove at least one, possibly two before the first year... How the hell? I found the two HQ missions I did a pain in the ass with eight people delivered by Dragonfly - and thinking about it that would have been an incentive of building a logistics base with a hagar, living quarters and storage to base an Osprey in range of where certain HQs appears. That in fact was the reason why I had to skip the first two times the Red Dawn one popped up - my Osprey couldn't get to it, and it was a suicide trying it with five people. However, I did get the Dragonfly researched and available before I could get the money for a third base so it became a moot point.

Those were people who built base near spawn of HQ and sent mudranger with crew as far as i remember :) Dont try that at home ;)
I removed 3 of 4 basic cults by the end of second year(none at the end of first) and 4th was still there only because HQ did not want to spawn.

The basic merit of more bases is more scientists which provides you with better equipment when alliens appear(also more soldiers and better ranks - I think at the end of second year I had 4 bases with 16 soldiers in each). From what I remember all my troops used Cyber Armour when aliens struck - also I think I had skyraiders/skyrangers/skymarshals then. The best one of those three do not remember which one is that right now ;)

As for how you should replace your dead soldiers or lose less important ones for that matter use HWP and dogs - they are godsend as you can just produce/buy more! But basically as soon as you get sensible HWP you should send as many as you can in your ships. They make excellent scouts!

As for weapons - every single person that plays this mod has it`s favourites and say that rest is useless :P but it seems that every one says that about different weapons.
Miniguns are great for removing bigger number of enemies(great for those cult of apocalypse missions where there are millions of targets) :D
Sniper rifles dmg depends on accuracy of your guy so they are great in capable hands
And so on - I would suggest looking at Starving Poet Lets Play as he is literally testing every weapon he finds so you can learn a thing or two.

Hope this helps :)
But you were very unlucky to get sectoid base attack - anything nonpsionic would be easier - I only got a lot of Syndicate attacks, floaters and mutons to attack me so it was much easier...

You need beam weapon slot for laser canon and it does not require ammunition

And you can either get it from Decrypted Alien Data Slate or some captured Engineer/Leader/Commander

You cannot research it. You only can get info about it from one of the above. At least this is how I understand that and way I got it.

Yes this means you eliminated cult. As far as I remeber you need to eliminate 4 basic cults for promotion 3 (exalt, dagon, red dawn, black lotus)

You cannot move to part of dimension-x base that my mouse is pointing. I dont know if it is possible to spawn enemy in the place that you cannot reach :D

BTW I really like this map design :) reminds me of something like stargate :)

Ooooookay  :)
So Laser Rifle even on 200% roll does nothing - need to take some other weapons too. I actually tried shooting it from every side as well as from below  ;D

Thank you for answer

Holly molly

I just had my squad wiped out in landed hunter-killer UFO.
It was mutons + some alien flying rocket tank.
I was not even able to dmg it... I used like 20 plasma granades and i do not even know how much laser rifle shots. How much armor does this thing have!?

Might try again today - I will take some more and better explosives :D

Yeah it was already answered.
There are 3 factions on map:
- enemy
- civilians (so basically ally)
- xcom

Actually you can build TNI in workshop but it is not used for anything so I think that is what HumanTraitor is referencing to.
