Tactics / Large Maps, what do?
« on: May 28, 2013, 06:08:21 am »
Serveral times the map loads, and I find it's big or high map. I also find that my guys are forced to play catch up to the aliens as they freely roam and murder civs. 'Small Town' was one of the worst ones, forcing my troops up 2 staircases while under fire and the scream of townsfolk easy heard.

So what do you do for the maps that basically favor the aliens?

Tactics / Lasers, a Trap?

Lasers. I love them. Great upgrade for my copters and makes them ammo sinks for at least one weapon slot. Oh wait what about lasers for the troops? Nope skip over them.

Is it just me or are lasers only good for your interceptors and maybe, maybe laser AA guns(Don't know haven't used them). Trying to research up to rifles is kinda a waste I almost always find. Few reasons for this;

1) Solid Weapons don't lose their effectiveness for awhile.
2) You need Weapon and Ammo researched to use.
3) Most the time for me, when I finally get rolling on the laser weapons; the aliens are armored, bring that green stompy alien along with them, and have plasma rifles and blasters.

My first few times playing the game I went messed around with the tech tree and ended up getting plasma rifles in about a month of them showing up. Then I was sitting on 20 of the things and more ammo than I knew what to do with. Every time I try for lasers since then, it seems like a complete waste.

So how about your thoughts? Laser, good investment or trap in the tech tree?

I don't know where to put this so I'll ask here.

Is there a way to delete saves? I didn't see anything in the guides or FAQs about it.

User modifications / Modding weapon data

Long time fan, decided to redownload it(Wanted to wait for 2.5 but that's gonna be awhile).

This time I also wanted to try modding somethings. Nothing big, just like new ammo types. However I couldn't find where the weapon data or even the equipment data in general was. So where would that be?
