    Your Xenonauts 2 wishlist?

    More destructible buildings and terrain features for more tactical options.
  2. On one of the middle eastern maps I had a squad on overwatch on top of a building 5 squares away from a UFO. I can blow in the sides with a HEVY launcher but not the roof bug or not? I wanted a hole in the roof to cover the side incursion. Sorry about grenades but it is different!

    UFO Roofs Indestructable?

    It would certainly add another tactical option.
  4. I do apologise, but it is extremely frustrating.
  5. Prime example of this see photo. Grenade launcher in door way on left with clear sight to ufo, lands 2 squares away wounding own troops.
  6. Everyone plays Xenonauts in a different way, and that’s a good thing, but a nightmare for the developers who are trying to cater for everyone with different play styles and tactics. I do feel at the moment that I am being forced to play the game a certain way and have to follow a proscribed step of tactics to move forward. I realise that you have to learn to combat the aliens and change you tactics as the game progresses but, perhaps it’s me, I do feel there is only one way to do it. Now I’m comparing this to the newer Xcom games, and with those I could play the way I wanted without fear of being penalised by the game mechanics. My biggest bear about this is the background fluff that says the troops for Xenonauts are trained soldiers...................the mechanics of the game (to me) certainly don’t reflect this. I have given up playing now because I’m so frustrated by the number of times my troops are killed by grenades fired or thrown by their own comrades, and shot by troops behind them on a higher level (especially those at the foot of the ramp and those at the top of the ramp!). And if one person says use smoke........the rotors of the craft would disperse it!!! Please, please do something about the grenade algorithms and the to hit your own people data!

    Exactly the above, minimum distance to arm in flight. Easily down I should think.

    A change in the code so that your your highly trained troops don’t keep hitting their own comrades who are no where near the target! Especially where HEVY Launchers are involved.
  9. Sort out grenade launcher troops hitting their own troops when their right next to them!!!
  10. Should grenades (both) be able to take out wooden walls? looking at the sawmill map here. I know not brick but wooden sidings should be destroyable.

    Grenades both thrown and fired?

    Any update on grenades and launchers? So fed up of soldiers killing their own troops who are right next to them!
  12. I really think you need to read Kickstarter small print and understand how it applies. Any project that is backed can be changed through development, and like a Goldhawk do when they listen to their backers changed through feedback. Backing a Kickstarter Project is a gamble, it’s your choice as the backer if you except the risks. Unlike many companies Goldhawk do listen to the majority and if able do change what they can. You may not be happy with the result, but in the end if you receive a usable product at the end of the process that’s what a Kickstarter is.

    Grenades both thrown and fired?

    I accept all the above, but I can take out the side of a UFO with the grenade launcher but not a wooden sided building? Also the easiest type of grenade first produced was a combination of HE and Frag not either or. Perhaps I’m expecting too much realism from the tactical game with different wall structures behaving differently? Fair enough frag would do sod all against brick and concrete but wood would be fairly much toast (misquote time.... “the alien is toast”!

    Grenades both thrown and fired?

    Even frag would pierce a wooden siding and effect the Target the other side, I would also suspect the first grenade made for the launcher would be the simpler to produce blast type of grenade.But having said that the different types of grenade suggested by Max would be an ideal solution.

    [v8] Some weapons won't work

    Found the above as well.
  16. Just noticed you can see the animation of your trooper just as it does something stupid. Bends over aims at the ground and fires. Perhaps a minimum miss distance?
  17. And yet again very first mission totally screwed. Hevy Launcher guy 3rd out of the chopper standing on the ramp, fires a snap shot .......at his feet that kills a third of the team. Please get this fixed.
  18. Oh I realise it’s a Beta, finding things like the Grenade Launcher Goof is what it’s there for. But for some reason nearly every time I try using the launchers early in game they goof and poof! a big section of my squad has gone. Perhaps it’s the tactics I’m using, but the game should be able to manage multiple tactics. Will keep persevering!
  19. Any update on this yet, really putting me off playing, sorry.
  20. If an aircraft is shot down shouldn’t there be a chance that the pilot ejected? Perhaps new missions to rescue downed pilots?
  21. Purely from an obersvaetional point the problem I’ve noticed seems to be objects and LoS effect the scatter more than anything. Can grenades and especially launchers be used in an indirect way? Soldier A says there’s an alien the other side of the wall Soldier B lobe a grenade over it to flush it out or mallet it? Grenades tend to fly in an arc up and over, not in a straight line is the game treating them as a straight shot?
  22. Well if they did was one of the most devastating weapons they ever deployed!‍
  23. The miss chance and supposed random scatter of the fired grenade is awesomely stupid, if the chance in real life was like this the army would be running out of troops and the government would be calling an extremely urgent enquiry!
