Question regarding mid-to-late game
« on: September 28, 2022, 03:33:32 pm »
Hello.
I love the game, even when it actively hates me by pelting me with bad RNG, however after getting pretty much everything sans the alien ranks to unlock the final mission, things get a bit dull with having to visit every Crash Site and such, especially when I lose a good soldier when trying to recover a small scout.

Do I have to recover every crashed UFO or does shooting it down already counts toward the score? Do Terror Missions still happen if I down the Terror Ship and ignore the remains?

You don't have to visit everything.

Shooting down UFOs already gives you score. The ground mission can make it better (or worse).

Terror Missions don't happen if you shoot down the Terror Ship.
