One thing I realized about X-Piratez (apart from the fact that it is really good): I need a new PC.
Base Defense missions especially are unplayable on my old single-core computer....  :o

Can you provide a save pls?

Wait till you get to space missions.

On the topic of base defense missions, holy hell was I not set up for a star god crackdown at my Eco base. I will confess to shamelessly save-scumming, as I would probably ragequit if I lost all of the loot stored in this particular base. In other news, it is totally possible to kill sectopods with heavy flamers.

Other things you can try:
- decrease scaling (how much of the map is displayed on the screen at once)
- turn off fancy filters
- decrease resolution
- use official OXCE version (renders about 50-120% faster than the unofficial one shipped with piratez, at least on my PC tested yesterday/today)

Not so far as i am aware. I can think of a few possible explanations, but without more info about your specific situation i can only guess.

Is there a base present? Is it a real supply ship on the battlescape?(like is it the same shape, does it explode?)

there are bases, and the hyperwave decoder identifies them as suply ships on base suply mission.
I'll try to intercept one and see what happens.

Reviewed the patch notes and there is a mention of "tweaks" to secret base supply in the J16 patch. But "Tweaks to missions: They Came From The Sea, Secret Base Supply" isn't particularly descriptive.
