LOL turn 3000. That must have taken hours!

Here I go an angry brother gonna make his move
But can I buck him in the city so I never lose?
See I'm a get him in the crowd with a couple heavies
And lay the barrel to the ground, hold the gat steady
And now I'm ready for my adversary, talk is cheap
I'm looking for a way to make a plan gonna keep it neat
So don't be telling me to get the non-violent spirit
'cause when I'm violent is the only time the devils hear it
'cause all I want to see is m****f***ing brains hanging

The moment I have a mission taking longer than 100 turns, please kill me :laser:
Even a colony mission, where I try to zap every last one of the aliens never took me over 50 turns I think (wild guess, could be I never did one over 30 or over 70, but definitely never ever did I have a mission take 1000+ turns :wacko: )

Ok, the main reason for that might be that I lose patience and just start running all my soldiers their max TU allowance until I spot the last bugger, and pray they don't get shot :)

I've had those a bit over 100 turn tftd cruise missions too :cussing: Those buggers in the closet aren't that bad, you just check them all but I've had invisible aliens and it's an annoying bug. You just have to go in every room and stand there one turn because you can see the alien in alienturn if your soldier sees it. Happens quite often actually.

Have you tried blasting away some objects (bodies, useless equipment) with grenades? The invisible alien usually happens because the object table is full....it gets unconscious because of an injury and when it awakens back there's no room for it.

There are actually a number of line of sight calculation errors in some maps, so an alien standing right next to you vanishes. The bottom of stairs usually has this, and the door into the coldroom in one of the TFTD cruise ship missions does this too.

Here's an old screenshot I'd taken years ago. I know how it was done, and no, there's no major trickery involved. Still, I'm sure some of you might find it amusing.

I imagine a caption like: 'How did I get up here?' would fit it just nicely.

It's hard to describe, but I'll try. You see, just offscreen is another hill. The soldier initially started on top of that hill.

I wanted to move him up close to the rock formation. I clicked one tile too far and, lo and behold, the soldier walked down the hill to ground level, and then walked 'up' onto the lowest step of the rock formation. The soldier wasn't quite standing on the level, but on the level below (though elevated). So by moving into the next tile along, the soldier began to climb up the rock face like it were stairs. This works until you tell the soldier to drop down onto any lower tile.


It uses the same trick you use to walk through ground level UFO walls (the west and northern faces).

It might sound a bit confusing until you see it in action.

Another easier option is to just toss a stunned soldier up there along with the weapons and then wait until the soldier wakes up. However, this wasn't the case with this screenshot.

Looks like a hacked character, to me (duh).

I actually used to do that.. I'm trying the game this time without modifying soldiers (too much.. I modified a squad for a temporary time.. was their first Terror mission, damn it (first mission, period, in fact)! I didn't want any screw ups, so I gave them 20+ to their Improved Stats values. It certainly allowed them to survive. I subtracted the 20 points from their Improved Stats values after the mission was over.. well, not entirely.. those that gained actual command rank, I only subtracted some teen value.. depended on the stat, really).

You'll often end up with a couple of TUs left. I've learned the hard way that not taking the time to watch your flanks, in any combat situation, is an invitation to a broken skull. (Or in this case, a melted one.)

I call it a walking bomb. Prime all the Explosives beforehand, and when he's killed, the aliens nearby get a nasty surprise... or is that what you'd planned all along?
