I've been following Xenonauts for ages, recently decided to pre-purchase as I loved all the Xcom games, and even the UFO series etc...
So, finally load it up to play. Figure I'll set it on easy to get an idea what I'm doing.
Explore the base menu etc, nothing to research yet but I guess I have to kill some stuff first.
Start fast forwarding time to find a UFO after building an extra radar.
UFO appears, intercept it, boom, it is destroyed, no wreck. This used to happen with the first "very small" UFO on xcom as well, so think little of it.
Proceed to play for 30 mins fast forwarding time and killing everything I can that is over land. Everything gets destroyed, nothing crashes, even medium UFOs.
Decide to try shooting stuff with cannons, but I can't get into range before they fly away, even with afterburners.
Decided I should try sending the chinook to one of the points on the map that have appeared, within seconds of it leaving my base it gets shot down.
At this point I gave up completely. Hopefully this is still an alpha etc, but right now the game feels very frustrating and inaccessible to me...
