Personally, I would be happy to see it go, or maybe only available in debug mode.

Well I can always make it ADD money to your bank, so it will be obvious it's a cheat ;)

Would it be possible to move them only by exchanging them with existing facilities?

Damn, those firebombs brings "smell of napalm in the morning" to absolutely new level. Actually kinda miss times when there was no NV and my preferable sources of lights was INC ammo/grenades, really adds to atmosphere, but NV saves a lot of player's time of course.

One thing about Pogroms. For me they are became a lot easier because there much more factions now, comparing to older versions, and while I was struggling on 2nd or 3 Pogrom previously, because of flying GOs or even armored one, now I just steamroll with explosives/kustom handcannons against weak armored demons/deep ones. The main problem was good armor/weapons of enemies and I liked it, IMHO pogroms should be a lot more difficult than any mission forcing player to choose between clearing it/losing a lot of points forcing to clear a lot more missions to get good points at the end of month, and now this particular part of difficulty dropped to zero, playing at 3rd difficulty now.

To be fair, heavy armor is more than a little shock to a new player. UFO doesn't throw anything that resilient at you for a long time, and if all you've been facing is reaper cavalry at the worst, the game probably hasn't "taught" the player the need for high explosives yet. (Although as long as you accept XPZ's can't win 'em all philosophy, the cars themselves do exactly that)

Myself, I just caught some Osiron ship on the ground, and I'm really struggling with Cyberdiscs because my heavy armor solution (and I realize they're not terribly sturdy as terror units go) was swords and maces backed up by ludicrous strength. I got one of the three down, but I'm debating bugging out with whatever I can carry since the other two have decided to just camp a wide open area. Smartest move I've ever seen the AI make.

Edit:
I was concerned that my campaign might be getting to a dangerous point if I didn't improve my tech and pressed on. That hurt. A lot. Most of my primary strike team will probably be laid up for a month, the results screen really doesn't tell the story.

Asterisks generally change the world state. Once researched, you have learned something that cannot be unlearned, or you have entered into a pact that cannot be broken. *MUTANT ALLIANCE* for instance makes you a member, and makes your participation in pogroms mandatory. Set the World on Fire is demon related, the consequences are likely to be related.

just 1 quick idea - what about implement "tired-ness", tireness, after each mission ?

simply, after each mission each gals participated in just -finished mission, would suffer tired and exhausting, for some time.. ( -- dropping, decrease the energy, accurancies, morale, and amybe health too, and so on.. )

..and it would be dependably on mission time, longiness of mission duration :

long mission, - lots of hours = alot decreasing of energy, morale, (health, accurancy, etc..)
quick mission, - few (tens) minutes, till 1-2hours, at most  =  almost no decrease of energy, accurancy, morale..

--- double-posting is legal now, but let's keep it sane - Solar ---

´´´.. - aech gals, each person who was on that mission..

I remember it being proposed, but the idea was scrapped because it would be yet another thing to micro.
Gals have plenty of time resting anyway. Probably all they do in the Hideout is Rest&Relaxation in, or without undies. They also don't have to shovel coal to the furnace for crafts to fly.

If you want something like that then simply don't use any gal twice in the row and problem solved.

1. How do I load Bombard into vessel?
2. I've already researched tons of high-tech things like laser weapons making/brave whaler/advanced firearms/etc, but still not in mutant alliance( I believe there should be research for it, no?), did I missed something?

1: You should be able to equip it from the armor screen, someone has to drive the damn thing.
2: search for it in the tech tree, have a look what you are missing.

Yeah, I knew this, just missed explanations that you need equip it as armor. Well 2-turns pogrom just ended with only 2 bombard gas shots, poor civs though.
