Weaker psychics ruleset-does it actually exist?
« on: August 09, 2013, 01:29:30 am »
I read about this in the wiki as a potential challenge, and it seems like a grand idea: it makes sense in-universe, it's challenging, and it's scary. Has anyone actually gone through doing this?

weaker aliens or weaker soldiers?

it wouldn't be hard to adjust the alien's psi abilities, they're in the ruleset, and there's only, what, 5 psi capable races as it is?

weaker soldiers is just as easy.

I was thinking on this bit from "Making the Game Harder"

Quote
It would perhaps be more 'realistic', and certainly scary and challenging, if human Psi/MC Strength and Skill were capped much lower than aliens, for example, capped at 50 each. Various mods allow changes to skill caps. You could simply sack anyone with Psi/MC Strength higher than 50. What would be cleverer would be a mod that either generates human Psi/MC Strength in a lower range (0=50 instead of 0-100), or that applies a 50% penalty to Psi/MC success calculations for any XCOM-controlled units (humans, or human-controlled aliens).


I found the idea quite interesting. And was seeking to get something on those lines


(BTW, and somewhat off-topic: is there any mod that changes or adds new psi-abilities?)

Can't you change this in the ruleset under soldiers/maxstats/psiStrength?
