Don't need Interceptor's and Skyranger's a littlebit Fuel ?!?

I mean...
Don't X-Com need to buy Fuel ?!?
Maybe we could build a Fuelstation for the Base, where the plans can be refueled.

hmmm....do you have your own fuelstation for your car? :wave:

I know that this is not the same scale but whatever....


you just order an oiltruck to come op to the top secret base with fuel. Then you sap him with the memory deleter, and he drives off not worring about the money :D


BTW, i think that oil goes into base maintainance.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

The Hangars have a monthly cost, the fuel cost should be in there.
Compared to the whole base with troops ships and everything, fuel would not have even a small part of it. And with the discovery of elerium, no part

The original X-Com billed you monthly for the lease and upkeep of the Skyranger and Interceptor. Perhaps building a facility of some kind (fuel dump, resupply depot, etc) would halt this cost as kind of a pay now or pay as you go kind of decision for the player?

Everything should be done through agencies through agencies who both knowingly and unknowing ly do our bidding. This way we keep some secrecy and can be an "enemy unknown" to the aliens!!

I think a fuel depot whould be good.

The Aliens could cut off the base from the external world for one while.
And without support the base can't work.
