As you can guess from its name, aqua plastic can be taken from underwater missions  :) Osiron containers also xan drop a few pieces.
yield rate seems to be extremely low though.
both the missions and osiron crates appear not that often and the plastics amount is just traces...

Hmm... Osiron - yes, but underwater missions spawn regularly. Have you researched their communicator?

Version 1.0.2 has been released.

- New Alien Base, Farm, Forest and City mapblocks (by Civilian).
- Lurking Cybermites are now invisible on the minimap.
- New FN FAL handob (by Civilian).
- Lowered the Melee requirement for Martial Arts to 65.
- Fixed a crash on Marine Base Defense mission popping up.
- Fixed the Night Owl commendation.
- Fixed energy regeneration on Heavy Suit (both variants).
- Fixed Psi-Amp handob.
- Fixed one Battleship map.
- Minor terrain fixes.

It's another bugfix release, so it's still on 1.0.X. I had to release it because of a critical bug on the Marine Base Defense mission.

As always, psi-skill need to be unlocked for the further training by using psi-device or during psi-training at psi-lab. There are no changes in this mechanics.

(razed several bases, UFOs, etc)


EDIT: oh and where to find alien keys... i had one, used it, but no clue where to get new ones...

It is not an item. It is hostile faction with its units and missions. Strange, that you still haven't met them... Their first encounter is on missions with farmers. Once you'll interrogate their agent, it will open the other missions with MIB.

You should hunt for supply ship, which usually fly to the alien embassies. The leader of such ship carry the key. Not on every ship, though, but only there.

Ye i know the faction. had a lot of missions, destroyed some of their bases and UFOs. but never could research "Men in Black". (even though i researched their commanders/scientists/ops/etc all).
Looked in the research tree, it says "item destroyed: Men in Black". Which pretty sure kinda means there´s gotta be an item with that name...

oh, that makes sense. thx
never would have figured that one out... -_-

Hmm... I've never met such a thing over many missions. To gain access to 'Men in Black' research you should interrogate their commander first.

Psi strength is revealed. Psi skill always starts at 0 and must be improved by using a psi lab/gym and psi weapons/items.

I started a new campaign, I forgot how tough the early game is: One of my starting agents was mauled to death by angry gorillas, after another rookie wounded the first one with a misplaced shotgun shot. Good times.

Is there a way to list soldiers by commendation/s? Are there plans to do that? Lastly: Can commendations make a soldier go above their natural limit? Do these stat upgrades count for said limit (as in, if you were to get another medal that gives you stat bonuses, you get nothing if you maxed out said stat)?

Currently not, but commendation bonuses also counts while you sorting by other stats.

Of course! Look here http://prntscr.com/pz06qt - the most commended soldier. All bonuses stacked from different commendations.
