"Welcome to X-Com recruits! Our sole purpose is to protect this city from alien scum. We have substantial funding from the Government, and no restrictions on how to combat any alien threat we detect...they just ask that we keep the city in one peace in doing so."
"This is the structure that the government has granted us, it has the best facilities the city has to offer, hidden under one of it's oldest buildings to boot."
"Here is how our base looks underground with new construction projects underway to make our facility that much better...and more defensible as the our home is constructed by typical governmental standards 'Crappy'."
"Hit the training room people, now that we are up and running, the name of the game is waiting. Be ready for anything at any time soldier. Dismissed!"
As you can see, we got a fairly large base, with a decent layout, plenty of room for advanced labs especially when the vehicle bay is moved to another location (read: we get more money). Only going to go with a small defense perimeter of 1 station on each side of the lift, so I'm moving the training room and bio lab one square out. Sadly we are in a slums building, so let's hope no one decides to just collapse our home on us instead of assaulting it.
We've got 3 Hovercars with Turbo engines and dual lasers and 9 hoverbikes, 6 with the best engines they can use...3 Rendors and 6 Janitors. This is more of an airforce than I usually field (we did get lucky with 9 hoverbikes off the bat). Should be enough until fast attack ships start popping in. Gunna go in and play the first day or so, should be at least the one alert mission.
Remember, anyone who wants to join the fight sign up in the Application thread...we need more troops for the cause!
EDIT - Also, let me know how the pictures fair for everyone. I got broadband but the uploading seemed extremely quick to me. So shouldn't be a biggy.
