Uhh that was a harsh experience, loosing nearly your complete team on that kinda easy mission, Abductor with Snakeman. Jeah its Snakeman Time!!
I will try to finish the last turned versions of the Alien Base AMps and then release a new Version before Christmas, mainly bugfixes and the early game research changes i mentioned before.
Maybe using the drones would help to have expendable units?

Erm, it was sectoids? Did you watch the right video mate :-) They cracked out their magic brain powers, which I haven't really experienced much yet (Thankfully!). Anyway I'm considering using a drone again, but the price point is quite high. 250k for it, or 75k for a recruit that can do about the same job and seems to survive around the same amount of time.

Either way, I agree losing most of the team wasn't really ideal :|

Oh right, it was Sectoids, my bad wasn't fully awake when watching. Brain Magic on the way.
If you replace your current Version of the Scout drone Mod with the one located here, you will also have the option to repair the drones.

Hallo, thanks for the new episodes.
I really enjoyed your sucessful mission against the sectoid labship. remember to keep an eye on the soldiers not being submitting to alien psi attacks. those will be really valuable. And this was not a infiltration mission, but a abduction mission.

Abduction missions offer you a great opportunity to capture Alien Medics, which are needed to unlock the psi amp later. which will be a great weapon against early and mid game enemies in the lategame.
lategame enemies have a very low weakness against psi attacks. ethereals will be totally immun against them, even thou ethereal soldier do have a very low suspectability against psi panic.

the lategame mutons can be mindcontrolled but you need 90+ psi str and skill, going for panic is a much safer option.

i am sorry to not have released the new version as i promised, i just had to many things to do (got caught up playing some stellaris, but got frustrated about the slowlyness)

one word of advise store up some small launcher and both ammo types, elerium bombs and stun bombs. small launcher does have a arcing shot in the mod and will replace your grenade launcher. it is actually one of the first alien weapons you will be able to unlock and use. great artillery support.

elerium bombs can also later be used to easily adept them for a hovertank as ammo. having a excellent terrainclearing weapon. and really research corpses or you do not get medikits.

Hey Hellrazor,

No worries about the next version of the mod, quite enjoying the current version :-)

Just do in life what makes you happy, thats the key to being happy! If it takes you longer to release the new version, then so be it.

It seems that you finally managed to get a hold on your deadcount, at least you are now getting some veterans!
Thats very good, I am looking forward to the next Terrormission - next Squadwipe is incoming :D

Or maybe look up in the UFOpaedia on how to deal with Chryssalids.
