Readiness system. How does it work?
« on: November 19, 2019, 12:42:02 pm »
What it says on the title. The game doesn't have an Ufopaedia page about the topic yet, and I'm not sure how exactly it works in X-Com Files. IIRC you get bonuses if it's high, but your soldiers start getting penalties as it gets lower and lower. Which is the point where it is considered too low? Which buildings do improve the recovery rate? In Piratez some buildings do, but I think it's not specified in X-Com Files.

Also, shouldn't AIs be immune to fatigue, or at least be way more resistant to that than puny meatbags?

There are NO bonuses, only penalties. When your readiness lower, than 50%, your energy regen rate decreases AND, what is the most important, morale decreases each turn. The higher your bravery, the lesser morale decrease rate.
Living quarters regenerate readiness by 5 points each day, large l.q. - by 7. The amount of buildings do not stack their bonuses, counts only the higher one. You can use Golden Dragons and Nobelon to restore some readiness during the mission by the price of some health points.
And yes... enemies don't have readiness, so tactics of skipping turns is worthless.

Completely false.
Yes, I should make that page, but this is still misinformation...

Go to any armor in the pedia, press the info button and look at the energy recovery / stun recovery / morale formulas

What is readiness?
Baby don't hurt me,
Don't hurt me
No more.
 ;D

...Ah, so the question is about definition 'what the bonus is'... IMHO, 'bonus' is something which gives us extra points of anything. Ok, let's open that menu then, sacred and unknown to me... What we can see there? Is there something beyond the normal, something we can count as bonus? I think not. Since we have readiness as a basic stat now, the basic counters formulas contain it. It is normal now. Not extra. We can regenerate with full readiness faster, than with a half of it? Hmm, maybe we should speak about HP then? Full HP provides us extra chances to survive, than half HP?  :D Oh, man.....

I can give counter-direction. Go to 'commendations' menu. There you'll see all the bonuses your soldier has.  :P

You can regen with full readiness better than you could without it, so it's a bonus and helps with early aggression.

So, you can be pedantic, but compared to pre 1.0 there are bonuses.

Forget about pre-1.0. Once and forever. :)

Yes, Poet is 100% on point. :)

Depending on your playstyle, it can be a significant help, compared to no Readiness system.

Oh, so the readiness itself is a bonus, right?  ;D

Long blue bar at the bottom of the soldier stats screen.
