you sure darkness is a good idea for that? You can't see shit, but the aliens see just fine...

those shots better be kinda more powerful then... >_>
for comparison (additionally), a 50cal bullet carries 15-20kj at muzzle exit.
so that tazer is like 36 HMG or barret shots.
thats in the "punctures UFO hulls" category, on the far side...
400kj is like 1kg of TNT, so kinda highEx. but taser is concentrated in one tiny shot...

Why would I go with an extremly heavy weapon that can only fire twice (with each shot costing 40% TUs) and risk reaction fire when I can carry multiple flashbangs and a taser/stun rod instead? I simply don't see the rational behind the weapon the way it's currently implemented.
I agree. Sometimes you need ranged stun, if enemy stats are too high, but that thing is just too cumbersome, even compared to the smaller taser.

don't have the stats completely in mind, but even without bonus, 35dmg*5, cutting, at just 30% TUs is far out in the "insane" category...
plasma sword will definately top it though.
it does not seem a hightech lategame item, so its insanely strong, until stuff gets really armored.

with power suits it might actually do something... ^^

Is there a way to deal with 4 or more alien embassies?
Are the aliens even supposed to set up more than 3?
they can.

its supposed to be hard. its not even supposed to have every single battle winnable.
so there are losses. There are some losses you can't do anything about it, otherwise it´d be "play perfectly and win every time".
on "normal" difficulties like veteran, what the game is balanced for, its not that much an issue.
Superhuman is possible. (at least some people claim they did it)
So basically you´re just complaining that a) superhuman is too hard or b) you´re not good enough. Whats the point in that...

don't need that strength to use it though.
just to carry it.
if you got less, you only need enough that the TU reduction (because too much weight) is not so much you can't fire that thing...

yes that happens with tanks.
but they can make a new door ;)

that is because the body is on a slope.
Not sure if thats fixable in any way, since the body is flat by definition, and the slope is not...

Well, you can hurt people by negligence in a lot of situations, the point is that it's relatively harder to kill a guy with classic handcuffs.
well there´s positional asphyxiation. Does happen for police too sometimes...

The X-Com Files / Re: Quick Grenade Throw
« on: May 24, 2020, 04:12:36 am »
Interesting idea. Though it needs a lot of TU, so i´m not sure a quick action is appropriate there.
Not sure if the engine supports that though...

With the item selection (on buy/sale/manufacture) it would actually be great to have a 3rd option, +100 or so. The "all" is pretty handy already.
But everytime you wanna manufacture like 500 alloys or so you gotta hold the button for 2mins...

Agreed, night time with melee and crossbows is a bit more manageable. I've also had some luck in day time by popping copious amounts of smoke, but it's just not quite worth it. The beach missions tend to be far easier despite coming later and having tougher enemies.
Interesting. i always found the ski missions a lot easier than beach. Beach is just pure horror...
(i do both at day though, usually with crossbows)

its possible at least.
though i´d have to write a parser for the rul files.
not looked into that yet...

yes, i agree.
but tbh it was already horrible writing up that UI, and with armor i´d be a lot more input...

if you (or anyone else) really wants that included i can do it too.

currently there´s not even buckshot or area dmg in there.

if i do that too i might have nightmares about drowning in input fields or so... ;)
