    Perhaps all the scientists come form government agencies and not the private sector.
    I would imagine they'd come from both.

    And no $150,000 is not that much to pay a scientist, especially of the caliber that you'd need for the Xenonauts' labs. I know professional scientists and even government ones get paid more than that.

    I always imagined the cost of the planes was the cost of upgrading the donated F-16 to the F-17 variant, which is more in line with reality.

    Per MONTH? As that's what it would be in game.

    Ah, no. Annually. So that's be about $12,500 monthly per scientist. And looking at the pay scientists get in game is $15,000 a month that sounds about right to me.

    The money in the game is really more of a guideline anyway :P
    Check out the fun (and failure) at my twitch page!

    You can make fluff arguments as to how much things should cost either way. For cheaper, you say that gear and earth-tech are donated by member nations, with the "costs" being retrofitting them for xenonaut use (or transfer costs, paperwork, etc.). For expensive, you argue that they're buying it straight off the market.

    I prefer the former, over the latter.
