My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.

if you've got windows xp stay away from it! or you'll get very frustated trying to blow up invisible alien probes / pirate bases. (btw has any1 found a fix for this?)
Hear, hear!! Everyone, take heed of this advice. Play it. Play it now!
otherwise wear it in good health

Unfortunatly as we know from X3 (real time battle mode) attempting to do this ruins the quality, seems they didn't quite get the balance right. X4 is a great game on its own but compared X3 Rocks.
I think this shows we need more variety like X3, including land battles, dogfights, fps options?(maybe, maybe not) etc. to get rid of the repetativeness and not worry about the pace. I mean if its a good game people will play it even if it is slow as heck.

X-com 2............a slight let down but still worth your cash
X-com 3.............riiiiiiight this sucks <10 mins later> .i spose i could get into it <30 mins later> ok so its ok............
X-com 4.............wheres the damn old fashion battle screens? this is naff........well its not but its just no tthe spirit of x-com .....i miss shootin them aliens X-com 4 is not as good as it should be
X-com (as i would make it) ........combine the interceptor action with the battle scape of 1-3 AND the old base managment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First, press ALT + E and type "battlecheats". This makes all the codes you can use in battle work. During battle, hold ALT and press one of the following:
~ (destroy selected target . This does not work on the Doomsday Weapon)
2 (disable seceted target )
O (SUICIDE! )
fillerup (no more of that "fleet #X is out of fuel. Returning home" right before you get to the alien base crack)
quickbase (instantly complete any bases under construction--not modules)
knowitall (all research given)
payday (get $1m)
BTW, Interceptor rocks, but gets repetative. What do you need to get Nova Bombs, anyway? I always research everything I can, then the Nova Bomb option shows up on the Research options somehow. This only happens 1/2 the time, tho.
