A few balance suggestions
reluxor posted a topic in Xenonauts General DiscussionHi, first of all, I want to express how please I am with the game. I am playing Ironman veteran. So far I went to december 1979 and met battlefield ship and heavy fighter. I made a break due to battlefield elevator bug Nevertheless I wished to express very easy changes that would -in my mind- positively affect the feeling of the game. Most of these concern the geoscape/gestion point of view of the game so it is nothing complicated to change I believe. 1) research should be 2 times slower. It would implies a) choosing your research instead of doing everything when it comes available (less linearity feeling), b) hire more scientist (more choices on where to spend money) 2) construction prices by engeneers should be changed. a) so far I never understood if I require alenium or alien alloys, which is very sad b) how in hell can a gun cost half the price of an air craft ? I would lower prices of gun by 50% (guns at 100 000 $ should cost 50 000 $) while I would higher over prices by 100 % (aircraft and even more importantly armors, jackall at 50 000 $ seems fine) 3) then, I would say aliens are too passive (just like in original x-com but since then I though this was a big flaw). Obviously alien will certainly be more susceptible to die with respect to staying in cover until they see something, but the game would be much less boring and less frustrating if they moved more aggressively. I know IA is a BIG deal but, even if they moved randomly it would be better for personal implication in the game. To counterbalance the fact that they will be over-exposed, they could be slightly buffed in stat (health, accuracy). 4) Also, it is unpleasant that they are almost everytime alones. a) it is unrealistic b) they are easier targets c) area of effect weapons are less likely to be usefull. It is GREAT that sometimes aliens move back when they see your forces, but they should do so only to REGROUP. if no alien is next to them they should just stay in cover. 5) influence of moral is not drastic enough to have any gameplay influence. a) I would say at the begining if one xenonauts die, a couple of the more psychologicaly fragile xenonauts should panic. b)Moreover I would say that ANY xenonauts who is alone should lost 1 moral point per turn. a pair should have a stable moral per turn, and a group of three or more should earn one moral point per turn. 6) did you think about giving an extra action point to xenonauts that didn't move for one turn ? 7) I think 90 action point should be a maximum for xenonauts Okay I think that's all, sorry guys for my english. Hope it will help.
