A Wild Concoction of Mods

"This war will take a Super Human Effort to Beat", Otto Zander



"Commander's Log No. 1

            Through all the bureaucracy someone in the UN had a good idea. Ever since the Xenonauts initiative the council's been on edge, so I've been assigned to a base in [REDACTED], Greece.





            There are eight troops here, I know they're the best of the best, but the council couldn't spare another penny giving us some more meat to grind in the War Machine? Anyway the eggheads have told me about a few options to research.



-[] Advanced Firearms
-[] Healing Spray
-[] Drone Warfare
-[] Next Gen Ballistics
-[] Tactical Infantry Armor
-[] Anti-UFO Aircraft Weapon
-[] Aerospace Technology

                                                     - Cmdr. [REDACTED]"

The -[] system is a checkbox for what you want researched and if you select it like this -[X], then say how many scientists will you assign to it, and your reasoning.

I'll vote full on early weapons, the minigun in that tech just rips early game enemies like knife on butter

Next Gen Ballistics, that tier has some of my favorite weapons from the mod.  Or split evenly between both, you'll need better guns of all kinds quickly.

If my opinion matters, I always want to go for armor. But it probably doesn't since I have little experience with XenoOperations. I will abstain my vote.

ACCESSING X-COM 'UFOPEADIA' DATABASE...

LOADING 12%...41%...99%...ERROR UNABLE TO LOAD DATA - PROCCED: [Y/N]

...[Y]

XENONAUTS INITIATIVE - GENERAL BRIEFING:

              In the post of the Iceland incident, the Warsaw Pact and NATO formed a joint-operation named Xenonauts, which came in handy in 1979 when a full blown alien invasion took place. First there were reports of UFOs and Crop Circles, next Spectroscopy Reports, then cities being raided with multiple witnesses.



              The situation became hopeless as the nations of the world were out equipped and outnumbered by the alien invaders. Not to mention their technological superiority. Until an unknown fighter craft crashed a UFO into the Iranian border, NATO and the USSR activated the Xenonauts initiative. The campaign place over several grueling years and ended when Strike Team Bravo consisting of Col. [REDACTED], [REDACTED], Cpt. [REDACTED], [REDACTED], Col. [REDACTED], [REDACTED], Mjr. [REDACTED], [REDACTED], Col. [REDACTED], [REDACTED], and Col. [REDACTED], [REDACTED] assassinated the alien commander on the alien 'dreadnought'. A hyperspace jammer was put into place to stop any hyperspace travel within the system.



               Soon most of the alien technology became useless as it all required their power source. Alenium. Even thier alloys required depleted Alenium.



HEAVY WEAPON PLATFORMS:

               Heavy Weapons Platforms or HWPs utilize technology similar to the manned vehicles used in the Xenonauts War, except remote controlled from base with a few alien AI derived targeting systems. The chassis can be equipped with either a 114mm Cannon, 11.5mm Dual Minigun or a Rocket Launcher.

"Commander's Log No. 2

I told the eggheads to research weapons, but I was inspired to have them research armor by a man on the council, he went by, uh, Reaver I think.




I also told the construction team to build more sections of the base.



The soldiers have been prepared and given classes and-



'Sir there's been a gravitational anomaly detected!'

A What?

"

     ...To be Continued!

========================================================================================

EDIT: Made some, changes to this to make it more readable and tie in with Xenonauts better.

"Commander's Log 2.5





         A few hours ago we had detected a UFO. We sent out our X35 and our SR71, but the UFO out ran our detection range.



          So we sent out our SR71 to Iceland, and we found something... big.





          Two large UFOs had landed, each most likely 30x30 meters in diameter. "

"Commander's Log No. 3


We've sent the Skyranger to Iceland, but we're going to have to go in at night.

Not only that, but we're extremely under-equipped:


We picked up a UFO in Zaire, but it landed.






In other, less serious news, the popcorn machine has stopped working. We're currently investigating the scene."


Operative Vladislavova: "Smoke Grenade!"


Operative Vladislavova: "Oh, fuuuu...."


Operative Shmidt: "I got you, AVENGE VLADis-something... D:<"


Operative Shmidt: "It's a... Person?"

Operative Goyal: "Wait... Harun, is that you?"

?: "...Terminate..."


Operative Lindenburg: "Got em!"

Operative Goyal: "Eh-"

Operative Caron: "Is that a do-"

Commander [REDACTED]: "Caron...CARON?"
