*Just a suggestion*

About the laser technology.
Too easy to get. (We just need to research " Alloy Manufacturing"), so improved ammos are less less less interesting.

You know, alien medics use plasma weapons, but they do surgery with ?  Laser....

So, my idea is to capture one (doctor), alive, and interrogate him.  He's an alien scientist; he knows how to manufacture his own instruments.

"Alloy Manufacturing" + "Medic"= enough clues to help us develop our laser weapons

 :D

Still feeling that the lasers are still too easy? You have to research Alloys, then Alloy Manu, then Laser Weapons and then each individual laser weapon.

I might just increase the research number for laser weapons? Although I like the suggestion.

I know, but with 30-50 scientists on the project,  we get the laser weapons very fast.
Improved grenades, rockets, explosives, are perfect!
If we interrogate an alien medic, what do you obtain?  Pratically nothing... but if we need him to get the laser tech, well...
Anyway, your idea is good too, but I prefer mine.

 ;D

I would like to be able to add it myself in the Mod, but it is beyond my knowledge.

...

A new Beta.  10:30pm here, so I start to translate if needed tomorrow, and test it after.

Tx.  A lot of work for you, I know...

Edit:  Increase the research cost a bit + the Medic    :o   :-X  Another option

Let me know what you guys think of the new sounds. There are new ones for all the plasma weapons firing (each one different), the plasma hit (1 for all weapons) and all new sounds for all the laser weapons firing (each one different).

I'll try it today if I am able, I really like the idea of new sounds.

I haven't found the lasers to be THAT easy.....I've lost 3 campaigns at the veryf first base defense (1st half of january to 1st if February)....in vanilla I *could* have had some lasers....

That's because you want the laser technology "and" the weapons in the first month.

  ;D  My, my, my...

Edit: Improved ammos, rockets, grenades.  Powerful enough until we "steal" the laser technology.

Be careful.
The Rulesets are not encoded UTF-8.
French characters won't appear correctly, etc
Tx

Weird.  Really weird.  Alien sounds for sure.  They are incredible, except for one thing:  they need more "punch".  I mean, the sound level is lower than others (InGame).

They have the same volume ?  I Know that it's possible to use a program like MP3Gain with MP3 files (files have the same volume output after), but with WAV, never tried.

Just my initial impression about it...

Took your words under advisement and increased the volume levels.

New mod before in t-4h.

Tx.
The problem is evident when you play a terror mission.
Aliens are shooting a lot of ammos at the beginning.

But on a regular map (UFO Crash for example), the problem is less evident.

Edit: Some items disappear sometimes from the inventory screen when I equip my soldiers.  Workaround: I click on OK and restart the process. Tomorrow, I'll try to reproduce the problem.
