The plan was to remove the ones on the bottom and build up in the top. But now I think that I will need 4 for a while.
One Civillian Van, One  Humvee, One for crew size and may be one interceptor. Depends on how much capacity the small bird has.

Some more reasearch going on. The month is almost at an end, no new missions have popped up since I started again. Is something broken, or ...

Now that is more like it!

I must now read up on my new toys and order some of them. I doubt I can deal with a Durathread factory, but I don't intend to ignore it.

End of month comes and I buy some stuff. Let's see how prepared I am for the Durathread Factory. It was a rather anoying mission if I recall correctly. We might be able to get some wounds.

One request, could you make images less wide? right now you have 1700+ that is hard to read on smaller screens.

Are the older posts fine? For example on page 71?

I recently changed the resolution of the game to my screen size. I will change it back to the older value.

Sadly the game crashes if I try to change into windowed mode and it has different resolution from the settings.

I am not sure if I can down scale it in Gimp without smudging it.

EDIT: I scaled all images by 2/3rds. That should be around the same as the old posts. Is that better?

I really like the new event introductions to the staff and the messages from the Cults.

Turn 1.

It wasn't that bad, was it?

Turn 2.

We get some wounds and kill some.

Batman bites the du... oh, he is still alive. Damn these Rookies, it is not a mission if one doesn't drop on the floor.

Turn 3.

We kill some more of them, but they are many and I have only two sacrificial rookies.

Turn 5.

We came, we shot, we ran away!

I could run northeast to the hill and then shoot from good cover, but I am not sure that I will have the ammo and medikits for that. Plus, both of our shield rookies are on low health.

Outcome:

44 points and some experience, not a bad trade.
