    Hopefully the civvies won;t get too smart. Imagine how your cheeks would burn with embarrassment if half a dozen of them mugged one of the Xenonauts, and hijacked the empty Chinook.

    I still think self immolation is a viable civilian option on occasion. I cite the '80s movie The Thing where Fuchs possibly sets himself on fire to avoid being taken over by the creature. Besides, it wouldn't be like X-Com if they were that clever.

    They just need a bit of warmth in their dull cold war lives. Getting high on pillars of smoke is also growing in popularity.

    (I assume they die after a while in those pillars of smoke due to CO poisoning and general choking on the fumes?)

    I think this is right....the lights go out in the camp and Fuchs in in the lab. He sees a shadow pass by the door (probably on it's way to sabotage the tractors and 'coptor) When the others search for him they come across the charred remains of someone and then they see Fuchs glasses. Fuchs had set himself on fire with a flare. The comment that either he died trying to burn the creature or burned himself to stop it getting him.

    The third option, as we know in this forum, is that the flare was already there and Fuchs wandered straight into it when the AI failed.

    I think they shot two versions of Fuchs' deaths. There was a still with him impaled on a door by an axe, but it wasn't in the release.

    I'm sure someone else here can verify the above. But if there are any disagreements, let's keep it polite. I'd hate for tempers to... flare.

    I'm sure that when the civilians have realised that running into the static fires is a bad idea, they can probably still be taken unawares by a burst of highly pressurised and flaming napalm.

    You know, I can't wait for the flamethrower.

    I just realised something here... Once the flamethrower is issued, I'll be staying as far away from thothkins as possible. I admit, I can't take the heat...

    Ah, I'm disappointed. I was hoping to fire up a few new friendships by showing off my new toy.
