    Point take on the free gear. I can see what you all are saying.

    Thanks for the info on repairs/recruiting

    Yes, I meant climb through normal windows.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same, on the topic of the free gear - the major powers would all have large stockpiles of their basic equipment and weapons lying around, especially in the period the game is taking place in; and considering that the Xenonauts are a pretty small team and not a regiment of soldiers, the governments wouldn't really be very out-of-pocket at all, by giving you their soon-to-be-obsolete earth weaponry!

    As to the window discussion, I'd wager that climbing through them won't be implemented, since for one thing; shooting a window isn't making it instantly safe to climb through, as there's jagged glass still in the window frame, and it would be somewhat impractical to make it a bit safer by knocking those jagged shards of glass out, to make climbing through relatively injury-free. (plus it'd be hard to do the animations and coding for it, naturally! Which would of course be the main reason )

    Right. Given the option of an alien shooting me in the face with a plasma gun or getting cut on shards of glass from a window frame........

    Yeah. The coding is why it wouldn't be implemented.

    At least the plasma would be quick...

    Heh yeah, what would you rather: slowly bleeding to death after severing an artery on a shard of glass while climbing through a window, or a quick and painless (relatively!) plasma shot?

    Strangely enough I was just having a very similar discussion here.
    It is a simple change to make vaulting through open windows and opening them without breaking them possible.

    Not perfectly animated of course as that would take an awful lot of work to tailor animations and windows together.
