Over the past month and a half I've been seeing a large, constant increase in the North Atlantic alien activity score - between 150 and 200 points per day. Now, there's an alien colony just off the coast of Africa, but unless those give vastly greater score to the aliens than bases in UFO did (5 points per day, right?), I don't see how the aliens could be getting such a massive amount of points all the time. I only pulled off a positive score last month due to an artifact site on the first day and an infiltration fleet I intercepted and assaulted on the last couple days. Anybody know what could be going on, here? My main base with a Transmission Resolver is pretty much right in the middle of the North Atlantic, so if it was USO activity, I should be seeing most of it, and if there were any more bases, I should be seeing the supply ships, too.
Anyone see this before? Are colonies just that brutal in TFTD? Is my save game bugged? Even with this extra -5000 points per month (!), I think my game is still winnable, but I'd have to act pretty soon, get the commander, and head for T'Leth before I really want to.
Oh, and I'm using the Steam version in DosBox 0.74 with XComUtil 9.60, if that makes any difference
