Lol yeah i know i am overloading them, but i am playing with the notion from 1995 that you need to make sure they carry a lot of stuff in order to make them stronger :D I know it doesn't work that way but I love to do just little guessing, knowing too much takes a little away from the "player" experience.

Wow, you don't even know how happy I am after reading this post. Finally someone like me!

I would pay a fortune to be able to forget everything I know about xcom and re-live the true xcom experience again.

That's what X-PirateZ did for me. Especially facing off against the Smugglers...

Personally I make it a point to try and forget everything I know about the mechanism of the game,  I have always found myself adding a lot of wrong information to my xcom knowledge :) so that I can't remember what's right :D.
But yeah I like to play as an innocent newbe guessing what to carry his much to carry and ignoring psionics plus I love explosives that is why you see me carry bunch of grenades and explosive ammo.

Ep.4 Is currently being uploaded will be on soon.

Had some technical issues with my encoder, the audio was recording but the video was stuck so i had to cut the first ~ 10 min of the battle.
And then it happened again but i didn't cut it, so there are like 4 min, so skip the fir 8 min and you should be ok :)

Ep 5 Is now available

finally a quick and easy mission. And we also welcome our new recruit Hellrazor

here is a quick update for those people that do not watch the LP

After 5 Missions this are the current standings

Name               Rank        Missions Kills Wounded   Clone
Jstank   Lieutenant   4   2
Iva DogovichEnsign   4   7
Meridian   Ensign   4   8
Xracer   Ensign   4   5
Shoes   Able Seaman   4   3
SupSuper   Able Seaman   4   2

**Clone
A soldier that was killed in battle but thanks to our advances in Generic Engineering we are able to reproduce this unit.
It is clear that prior to any mission our soldiers get "Brain scan" thus our clone will have the same memories as the deceased unit up until battle to prevent postmortem traumatic stress. Clones will be marked with a "*".

I am stuck right now moving computers and i need a new recorder since OBS is not working in my new system something to do with DirectX driver in my video card, either find old drivers or upgrade to win 10 :(. i am in win 7 with an GFX750ti  card. However i think i might just play a few more rounds in my wife laptop :)

You were asking on either episode 1 or 2 how to run, it's actually simple enough though it took me ages to work it out. First of all these screenshots are from my run through of hardmode on ufo but the principle is the same for TFTD. Make sure you have alternate movement methods enabled in advanced within options (picture one), then as you can see in picture two moving your unit without holding the ctrl button on the keyboard moves normally and with ctrl held (picture three) uses less time units. A word of warning though, your units use energy much faster when they're running all the time and can become exhausted and unable to move no matter how many tu's they have left as the amount of energy you recover each turn is the tu's your toop had when he was hired/3 rounding down ie the max energy recovery/turn that a veteran troop with 50 missions could have would be 20. Hope this helps.

This craft!!

It's the Ironfist dropship from UFO, a seperate mod or part of the FMP.
