Trying to update my Excel sheet of all my soldiers, and i was wondering about training.
I know the max trainable stats for my ubers and hands, so I got a pretty good idea of how long it is till they are out of training. But I cannot figure out what the stats are for Slaves, Lokk'Naars and Bugeyes.

My best guess is that it is based on Firing 85, Throwing 66, Meelee 66, and nothing else, can anyone confirm that, or know what the various numbers are?

Lol, I was just about to write about that :). Had 2 space missions in a row, got around 25% stun pr round :( Managed to complete one, had to load the start of the mission and cancel the second, no way my 2 men could kill 4+ zombies in 4 rounds :)

I think using healing items also has a chance of training bravery, as well as using a few certain items like ropes.

Just tested on rope, and got a 10 bravery increase after a VERY tense mission, so can confirm that works :).

After my 3rd restart, I finally got far enough in the game to get Hover armor, Death Blossom (that is one awesome gun), and the Metallo craft from codex.

Now i just got a few questions. Ever since the old X-Com days, I have loved to try to get my soldiers to max stats, and I was wondering if you got any good tips for that.
My main problem is throwing, it seems hard as hell to increase. I got Javelins, but they take a LOT of energy to use. I got the Shredder, but same issue, lots of stamina, and rarely see a skillup. At the moment, I am waiting for my Boom farms to finish their first run, so i can get Boom Fruits, otherwise I use Black Powder bombs on "easy" missions like animal hunts or Help the Lok'Narr. You got any good tips on levelling Throwing?

And Bravery. Thats a hard one. With the new traning methods, its possible to get up a a bit, though I have still not figured out when someone qualifies from Training, Militia Training or Gladiatorial Training, I just send people to my training base and see who can get what. But after that, I have noticed that a 10 increase in bravery can happen sometimes in missions, but I have not figured out why it happens, and what you should go for to try and get Bravery up.

And last, but not least. There is supposed to be limits on skills, but i see around half my "maxed" girls can get above it, see 121 and 122 shooting, 81 and 91 strength, is there any way to see when they reached their absolute limit?

And I got one freak. Shes nice enough, but are there any way to increase a Freaks stats? She's higher in TU and Stamina, but sub-par in everything else. I had her a while, possible some of her stats have increased, but others seem locked, shes for example stuck at 66 Strength and 85 Reaction.

I just ran into one....i gave it 8 hellerium grenades, some meelee, a lot of normal guns, all of which did almost nothing. Then i went with 2 laser weapons, which finally cracked it. And yes, i save scummed like hell to be able to do this. But it was that or run away from a progrom.

There is a ufopedia entry about how guns can hit and do 0 damage, or hit and do extra damage. And the ufopedia entry about hotkeys, you can see the hotkey to see the results of an attack is CTRL H. Press it, and you can see the result
=>  miss
0     no damage
hit   normal damage
HIT! crit damage

Just a small question, can you eventually make your own laser ammo? I have been playing for a while now (and earlier on an old version), and are at the level where i just got to researching a mint, and meeting enemies with tanks and plasma guns....but I myself have been unable to get any way with being able to make my own laser ammo (or got long enough in the research tree to get more than gauss pistol), and are basing my squad on EuroSyndicate Lasrifles for the moment, but would love to be able to make my own ammo for normal laser weapons.

Getting repeatable crashes when trying to attack Campus Carnage (Cold), just like a few others. Its the newest version, and a new month.
Attaching log and savegame, my turtle from South American just launched for it.

I just ran into Ghost Gals on a mission, any good tips on handing those? I just made some tech blades to see if that helps if i run into them again. But crossbows and the underwater stun darts were not useful at all :)

Confirmed that the US english instead of UK english fixed the issues with sectoid naming, and some errors in the test in armors.
Default install put my language to Danish, and just picked one of the 2 English langauges at random :)

I got a sectoid medic almost right away too.
And some of the armors, at least the starter ones, seems to have 11, 12, 13, 14 as some of the resistance descriptions.

Thanks, I'll hold on till the next version. I started once on the old version where you started with the Bonniventura, so was VERY old, started over and was happy for that, almost a new game by then.
So if a new version is close, I'll be happy to wait :)

Hiya all. I have had a game running for quite a bit, was running on 99F.
But i  can see a lot of changes, is it worth starting over? Or try to upgrade my saves?
