Grounded UFOs
« on: August 22, 2014, 02:58:00 pm »
Is there any way to control how long a ufo stays on the ground ounc landed ? Alot of times the skyranger is not able to reach the LZ in time before the few minutes the ufo goes airborn.

Yes, it requires modification of ufoTrajectories.

Send an interceptor to the UFO while grounded, it will stay airborne above the UFO and try to shoot it down in case it takes off before the Skyranger arrives.

Well, that will only work if the UFO is slower than the interceptor... :)

Hilarity ensues when you have one of these "Interceptor carries 2 crew" mods :)

...and they have old rifles and grenade between the two, cause thats what you put on them on Day1.

Oh yeah...been there.  Nothing like a two man crewing tackling a Sectoid Terror Ship.  Fortunately I had researched Alien Grenades.  It was a one man easter egg hunt:
1.  Find a grenade.
2.  Hide.
3.  Prime a grenade and toss it.
4.  Run and pray.
5.  Wash, rinse, repeat.
