A line of gals with ninja stars works nicely. Pistols are fine too.

I forget, what do you get there that is of importance?

XP

And I mostly use shotguns down there, later on when my gals are better/when I can bring more I might not bother reequipping. (especially if I have no shotgun loadout saved because I was lazy.)

Its a source of cats.  I think Voodoo is gated behind cats.

Ah, but they rarely survive though. More reliably you get a cat from the escape tower mission.

In my experience they usually survive, so I guess it's another RNG thing.

Game crashes, when shooting the brain on Cydonia. Can`t complete game now

Using OXCE+ 4.0.

Crash occurs, when two parts of the brain are being shot. The upper part and the right part.

"Segmentation fault"

EDIT:
Problem solved with latest version of OXCE4.0

Vanilla bug, introduced and solved recently, doesn't happen with oxce+ 3.10b.

If you have oxce+ 4.0, you'll need to download the latest one from here: https://lxnt.wtf/oxem/#/ExtendedPlus

That solved the problem. I had a bugged version of OXCE+ 4.0

You want cats because they're cats, of course! Who doesn't want a cat?

As of now I don't want to take them into battle, because they're forced up front, but they can be useful in base defense as a roaming scout. While a dog's Aye ability can cover a larger area, they can't get the vertical placement on their own, while cats passing by can tell you not only where the enemy is within their range, but what enemy it is and which way it's facing, as if you actually saw it.

But mostly just because they're cats.

Clearing the celler is a gate on progress in the bounty hunt tiers, you must beat it at least once.

It's good for rookie troop training too.  The rats aren't exactly lethal, and if you use shotguns accuracy isn't much of an issue and there's  plenty of them to shoot.

The rat ability is good as it is, it was funny to see master campers being discomforted by what is an extremely weak enemy otherwise, only because their tactics were ill suited for this type of mission. In short, I don't intend to remove the only challenge there is to be found in this mission.

Yea, the rats really are reminding me Screamers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screamers_(1995_film)
Ok, but how about bigger rewards? That Handheld Tunnel Boring Machine made of rat's tooth starts grow on me...

And cats were called "worthless" by Vansi anyway, weren't they :)


Sadly, I never found any cats during that mission. But last time I found gem and recently I also discovered their importance in manufacturing.

Man, all this sectoweed isn't going to smoke itself.

When they arrive, I will be able to buy sectoweed on black market. This in turn will allow me to keep manufacture Medical Supplies, and I will be able to upgrade game from 99J2 to current version without crashing economy and killing my current game. Then I will stop report bugs from "ancient" release.... Dioxine will be happy.

I forget, what do you get there that is of importance?

It is a good place to train your team B, C, or D.

I get a segmentation fault if a beastmaster surrenders while in her suit. I blasted the suit off her and knocked her out and was able to complete the mission.

Lesser and greater demons seem immune to the neural whip. I had:
- Two gals spend a full turn whipping a spectral demon to no effect.
- A syn spend most of a turn getting kinky with a demon to no effect.
- Most of my squad surround and gangbang a cacodemon with neural whips for nearly two turns to no effect.

Imps do go down in 1-2 hits as expected.
Either this is an incredibly unlikely sequence of peseudorandom numbers or a bug. Or perhaps a subtle commentary on man's struggle to subdue his own demons.
