The fence is ownage. You should have used Hobbes with the Grenade launcher.

EDIT: Do not bother trying to capture alive aliens for now. Before you can do that you have to attack a alien base and kill all enemies inside and there a lot.

EDIT2: Stock up scientists... my recommedation is 100 so you can research Lasers and advanced equipment before nastier aliens show up.

Aye fence won in that exchange :(

Regarding alive aliens, I can do that before I hit the base. Corpse --> Alien Containment --> Live Aliens. Granted it won't help till I have the
Spoiler:
slate
but still can have them :-)

For scientists, I'm doing what Meridian did in his Hawaii series. Wait until the 1st of Feb and then buy a ton, have a very cheap maintenance month for Jan and then buy all I need :-) Anyway hope to record episode 4 later today or over the weekend sometime and upload during the week :-)

Life is good!

Alien containment has Alien Reproduction as research dependency and alien food.
The alien reproduction can only be recovered after a sucessful attacl on a alien base, killing all enemies inside it.
The floaters will build a base near your starting base. Which is a opportunity for you to attack some larger landed craft.
That will be fun and provide you with lot of loot.

Aye as predicted, Episode 4 is a go at the supply ship for that base. No one has died yet, albeit my tank got one shotted again already. Hopefully posting it up in the next few days.

May i ask why you ignore the landed Very Large UFO? It's right sitting next to your base.
I would have attacked it first, turned on advanced option "Forced Craft Launched" and attacked a second and third.
The more you fight the more money you get.

Its a good question, I didn't feel confident enough to go up against a very large UFO straight off the bat. Perhaps after the current mission, I will have a crack at it :-)

There is probably 5-6m worth of loot laying around...
Also if you encounter a Lab-Ship there will be not Terrorunits but still loads of ressources to get.
Also you need to attack a Battleship at least once, doing it now, while you only face very easy enemies is better than later. Even thou you would need to set your self up properly and maybe do not let yourself get stressed out, because of the recording. Sometimes it is better to let the enemy come to you and let him run into your fire.

damn missed sign ups...haven't played this for a while but will be following this play through.

 If you recruit another rookie. Sign me up as "Zyzyfer" just give me atleast +50/55 reactions (make sure you leave 80% of my TUs so i can react fire- once I get reactions to 100 i will be awesome), and keep me safe with smoke grenades.  XDD

Signups are still active, you will be recruited in episode 7. (Already recorded episode 6). Any other demands, steak dinners at night, 5 star hotel? :-) Will see what I can do haha. Also how do you pronounce your name, or do you want me to just have a bash and see how we get on?

I did that to my viewers for a while... it certainly keeps the audience coming back.
But don't overdo it :)
