Reticulan missions.  Their trading can spawn any time during the campaign, and one of the probe missions spawns a Reticulan Outpost.

I think Family Ties stops the trading missions.

Contacts: Reticulans stops both the trading missions and the bunker. That's when you find out they're friends, not enemies. ;)

Yeah, but even the medium ships don`t deliver, what I need. Maybe I`m lucky with a reticulan probe, hm....

EDIT:
Never mind. I found a reticulan hybrid. The research gave the the reticulan`s stuff.


One thing about wound recovery. The number behind the "wounded". Does it mean hours or days to recover?

Cmon dude you could find an answer to that if you just went back to geoscape, skipped a few hours and checked back, literally about 5 clicks in game.

Sanya, you`re right.

A question about the reticulan files. How do I get them? The tech tree doesn`t give me a clue about this.

Its right there it Tech Viewer, "Reticulan Files [m]". All the Files (Humanist, Goverment, Reticulan etc) are made from Personal Databases, then can be researched.

@Ridan, that`s only, if you have already made a certain research.
For example the humanist files have to be unlocked, until they can be "produced" by the database.
You can find all the files under "Hacking" in the manufacturing.
But the reticulan aren`t there YET.

Now I only don`t know, what unlocks the reticulan files.

press q in geoscape, it opens the full tech viewer(if you do it in a research or manufacture tab it searches only through what's currently available), then search for reticulan files

This has been the (correct) answer to so many questions in this thread.

The Reticulan's Stuff is actually the engineered biomatter.  Gotta once again bring up the item names and article names not matching.

Well that explains why I haven't found one, haven't had those spawn in my campaign yet. Will keep my eye out, thanks!

For further info it looks like that on the battle map, and i imagine similar on the intercept. They start showing at the 2 year mark on middle difficulty down to on year on max difficulty.

@Rince:
As I already told, the tech tree is no help in getting to know, how to get the reticulan files. I`m still missing it.
