I'd recommend a no mind control, no blaster launcher, no sniping game. They make the game too easy. Play on Superhuman with its XComUtil fix.


Haha well I'm not very good at the game so I'm gonna play on beginning (I am aware of the difficulty bug though, I've just never installed XCOMUtil before). I am thinking no blaster launcher though as that is pretty easy chessy. I haven't decided on mind control yet. I just got done recording the first set so I'll let you guys know when its finished uploading.

Btw, in case you didn't know about it, what I mean by sniping is: range has virtually no bearing on accuracy in X-COM or TFTD. 77% is 77% at point blank range and from the opposite side of the map. But, if you miss your 77% hit roll, the shot flies off randomly. So, at point blank, you're more likely to hit your target with a "miss".

You can have a durable unit, like a tank, out in front and all your squad members a few screens back with a clear line of sight, and clear maps with virtually no risk (unless, your scouts die). The only thing more overpowered is a team of mind controllers, clearing whole maps without leaving the starting grid.

Interesting, I had no idea that range wasn't a factor on accuracy in this game, but it makes sense what you say. As a rule of thumb, I'll have the soldiers have to actually see the aliens themselves to take shots then.

Yeah, this is one area where Jagged Alliance 2 improved on the X-COM design. Range matters in that game.

Thanks to everyone who is participating. I hope you guys enjoy it! Unfortunately the sound gets desynced a little ways into the set, however I believe I know the issue and it shouldn't happen in the future, sorry about that guys.

Sounds great! Don't worry, we'll definitely be needing more soldiers once the more...... "nasty" aliens come a knockin.
