Well what is the best way to find alien bases. I have tried to follow supply ships but haven't find any yet.

Take a look at the UFO activity graphs, and see where areas have a lot of UFO activity. If there are areas where you haven't been shooting down many UFO's which are reporting activity, get a skyranger in the air around that area and see if it can't snuff it out. It may take a few hours (game time) but it's the best way to find them, as the end-of-the-month X-COM "agents" don't tend to find bases too often.
Amidst the blue skies, a link from past to future, the sheltering wings of the protector... The flames of hatred scorch the skies, igniting Gaia's funeral pyre...

Just put your interceptor to patrol, when it's on patrol it will find all alien bases in abou 2cm radius.. Let it patrol few minutes, if theres no luck. Try another place. Patrolpatrolpatrol and bases will come uncovered.
There's no need for a sig..

Maybe you didn't found base because they were still building it? But following Supply Ships and patrol place where are they landing is probably best way.
I'm not back. I'm just dropping by.

My conscience is clear, therefore I am guilty of having a bad memory.
