That was bugging me.

I got crackdowns from multiple factions and one load from another everything was gone. Everything seems come to an end and a whole month nearly nothing. I got crackdowns over month! and I did the same as last month. So I don't know. it seems they are flying again this month slowly.

Seems just very odd to me.

I think I really stop asking things and play and maybe say something if it's a real problem...

After a while you get one crackdown a month. Other missions caused by your interception are added on top of that.

okay i can now vouch for weird things happening to crackdowns after a base attack. I had multiple attack craft inbound to bases but after the first ground. battle they all vanished as well the 3 or so crackdown search ships.

This is 100% correct and vanilla.
After a successful base defense, the entire crackdown mission is removed from the game including any UFOs, which may still exist on the globe.

Ah, so I misunderstood: thought that the other Battleships reach your base and then disappear... I wonder where I got it from.

So are all crackdowns the same mission? I had Mercenary, Academy, and Star Gods all on base strike runs to separate targets. Traders and humanists where doing the swarm thing in asia and south America respectively. One failed landing and everybody says fuck it and teleports off the globe? Given that these are themed as distinct factions this behavior ill fits the mod IMO.

Say, friend, you want 10 base defenses in a row? Without rest?

No, they are separate missions.
Only one mission should disappear, not all of them... do you have a save to debug?

You mean faction-separate?

I am trying to capture a good save to debug. I have been as yet unsuccessful at reproducing the multiple factions active at once. And my closet save is 2 game weeks away from the incident. Will update when i have a good candidate.

I expected new, shiny thunderhorse to have doors, and forgot to equip not-new-but-not-veteran-either gals with smoke grenades. Result? Two death spore missiles into runway, on turn 1, while I was trying to maneouver somebody to throw a smoke.

I love this game and this mod.

A quick question about chryssalids: are they just as deadly in Piratez as they are in original X-com/unmodded OpenXcom, i.e. one-hit kill through every armor? Just asking so I don't end up doing something stupid like throwing a bunch of melee gals against them. :P

Yup, pretty much ;)

Also worth nothing, since you are using melee, that melee doesn't prompt reactions, so if you can get up to one, you are free to swing at it until you kill it (or run out of TUs..)  But beware, stepping in front of a melee unit can trigger it to react to your movement and, in the case of a chryssalid, turn you into a zombie. So better try it from the back (which also reduces their melee dodge, probably, meaning you are more likely to hit).

It's not a very good tactic, but with good melee gals it can work. Especially if you have flying armor and can "lift off" before running out of TUs, thus making yourself immune to the chryssalid's retribution as it can't hit a flying enemy.

Ok, thanks for the warning. I have to say, lids slashing through the heaviest of heavy armors has always been a bit jarring to me and I was hoping that might have been toned down a notch in Piratez. So far melee has felt like a fairly strong option for the player, but it seems to me "classic" style chryssalids are pretty much a hard counter to that. Ah well.
