    Idea: Conceal Mechanic

    Humans deploy camoflage, aliens switch to thermal vision, humans capture alien research thermal so can build thermal camo, aliens switch to pheromone tracking, humans research etc, etc. Much like how tech is researched already.

    Xenonauts-2 March Update

    I really don’t know where my ‘fear’ came from, I was just stating facts. I’m quite accepting of what Mother Earth does as a natural cycle. Without going into needless detail I’ve always accepted death as a natural part of life and not to be afraid of it. Enough said. Please take care whoever and where ever you are

    Xenonauts-2 March Update

    Because people are dying around the world, countries are going into lockdown and people cannot work. So getting an early access soon means absolutely nothing in the big scheme of things. If things in the world were normal I wouldn’t say anything and your points are possibly valid, but timing as they say is everything. I hope to god (whichever or none that you believe in) that Chris and his workmates are safe at home with their families not worrying about an early release date or anything else that is non important. In my household we’re locked down for at least 14 weeks, ah the joys of being in an at risk group! and my wife's Uncle is in hospital with the virus, with no family able to visit him. I freely admit I don’t know your situation or anything else but I do hope you stay safe and well.

    And........the world has changed. Posts like the above in the present situation just show people have far too much time on their hands. Think of the situation firms are in at present, most are just hanging on by their fingernails. Please people show a bit of thought before posting. And yes I too backed this game. I’m not worried about this, there are far too many other things to think about. And again congratulations to Chris for his new arrival, that’s what’s important.

    Congratulations Chris, it does bring back memories, one thing about being a grandfather is being able to give them back! Be prepared for no sleep for 2 years!
  6. Chris........if you are reading this...........a sub launched fighter and large tracked box like vehicles pleade
  7. I must admit I always look at these type of games with the UFO S.H.A.D.O tv series in mind. Earth defence in a secret base, shoot down a UFO and send out the special teams to deal with it. If only we could have a Skydiver sub!
  8. Ok, ok! Mein Panzer ist Kaput!
  9. I can see it know (with apologies to my german friends!).................the aliens speaking german..’boing’......’mein gott’....’mein ufo ist kaput’....Xenonauts the Allo Allo years. Mod anyone?
  10. Great! A new sound effect for the grenade launcher............BOING!.......
  11. And................that’s the way to fix part of the problem, minimum arm distance (I freely admit I have no idea of how difficult a programming problem this is though)

    Closed Beta V11 Balance Thread

    In ‘authenticity’ terms smg damage should per bullet be the same as a pistol, same ammo, unless you go down the route of small calibre ap ammo (as in P90 or Mp7).
  13. I don’t mind the ‘dud’ percentage at all, it’s the catastrophic cockups of either firing at the gunners feet or directly into your own troops. Seriously ..........fire, clunk, bugger is a lot more acceptable than fire, bang, new squad needed!

    Trust me I’m older than 40k and it was being used well before then!
  15. Thank you for such a quick and understandable reply! You’ve also pointed out an extremely important point that I think a lot of designers miss because of design system tunnel vision..............,,,,,,Fun to use!
