Is it possible to achieve victory in X-COM Files (1.8b) without a deep research of the Shogg, the Hybrids, the Syndicate and the UAC? I have a game in the middle of 1999 and want to win the game faster, measuring the real time. Some Alien commanders were captured and are awaiting their research. No Ethereals between them.

I've tried to investigate my situation with the Tech Tree Viewer and have found that there is "UAC Case Resolved" topic that "Affects game progression". Am I right assuming that the game is unwinnable without having every and one such "affecting" topics researched?

Yes, all these arcs are optional.

Hello,

What are the "must do" to actually reach end game and eventually victory, if all these arcs are optional ?

Feel free to spoil.

Thanks
