Great start for me, killing an alien and all!.

EDIT.

BTW, are your add-on mods available? I talk about the visual improvements mainly. But the build with nerd stats is something I'm expecting a lot too.

^IIRC stats for nerds is in oxce+ 3.5 proto branch?

Great first episode! I kinda like the idea of hiding alien ranks, so the player has to guess based on the observed equipment instead of knowing exactly who to capture, at least from a immersion perspective. It's not like they are wearing uniforms with rank insignia. In practice it's probably trivial for anyone familiar with the game to know what is heavy plasma, what is stun launcher etc and who is likely to be carrying those.

Visual improvements minimod in attachment.
(credits: robin, hellrazor, solarius, dioxine and myself)

The build with stats for nerds is here: https://lxnt.wtf/oxem/builds//ExtendedPlus/Extended+-3.10a-97df39e-2018-03-16-win32.7z
(but it's not really needed for Area 51, all info should be available in standard pedia pages too)

Even better start for me: the mod designer being the sole KIA on the first mission :D

Try to beat that! ;)

Enjoyed the first episode, managed to kill 2 aliens with a poor firing accuracy, looking forward to episode 2.

For somebody that claims to fear the bad habits picked up during the LP's of 2012 Xcom (and long war) i must say you are picking up the vanilla xcom style pretty fast.

Only 1 casualty (fittingly the one that brought down this alien onslaught upon all of us rookies :P) on the first mission even without "questionable" tactics (skip first turn). That is something which can only occur in the wildest dreams of my soldiers.
Kinda curious now if my character will develop her grenade throwing abilities to become a master of explosives ... or if she already died in the (currently) private videos.


p.s. i just noticed 02 is up .. haven't had a chance to see it yet, hence the last part of the previous sentence might be obsoleted  ;)

If you could for as long as master blaster lives change my flag to the UK.

kind of odd that a landed large scout has no power source?

then again maybe thats why it landed. "dammit, sectoid engineers, you forgot to install our power generator! we are running out of battery and have to land!"

I'm truly amazed at how ineffective my soldiers turns out to be in your LP's.

BTW: JG, male, USA

Yep, a very tough mission but master blaster II ready for duty.
