I have to admit I am no Xcom vet, in fact I've played very little of it though I could see how it could be a timeless classic to many. But does X com have as much air combat as this version of xenonauts and will the final version of xenonauts have it?
I was playing last night and did about Three ground battles after taking down several light scouts. I had build a second base
and had most of the buildings in place but wanted to do more research but I need more ground battles and what's more
I was starting to run a little low on funds. What happened was I got wave after wave of air attacks mostly fighters and got sick of these battles( I honestly don't care for the air combat its just small a diversion for me) they were coming several at a time
and in fleets of three. I won most of the time in the beginning, but I never had any more crash sites for ground battles, what happened is I started to lose interest and got impatient with these tedious air battles and started losing fighter planes; in the end I built a couple more hangers and added planes but I wasn't earning anymore money, also I got a few terror sites much of the time I'd run out of fuel and have to head back and what happened was something unexpected I lost the game with a screen telling me the alien race took over earth- guess I stayed up late for nothing. How is this? I still had both bases most of my planes several soldiers all in tact, yet no ground battles to earn any money or discover any alien technology and I lost.
Is this game going to be mostly air combat like this?
And how are you suppose to earn any money if there are so far and few ground battles to be had?
shooting down fighters and corvetts and heavy fighters doesn't seem to provide any money or generate funds.
And had I continued I don't think I would have had another crash site. It was all air combat in the end.
How do you handle these terror sites? As far as I could see there were no other options then to circle and patrol with fighter jets. And attack with them.
Once I read that the terror site was nuked- so we got them somehow.
