I'm stuck
« on: April 29, 2008, 04:31:53 am »
It's 2086 and I'm just sitting there. An entire year has gone by and there has been no aliens or intercepters. NOTHING! What is happening?!!

Most likely you have completed all the scripted missions. The 2.2.x campaign is rather limited. In 2.3 there should be much more in that area.

I`m using the 2.5 version and there is the same problem. When it is August 2086, any events occurs no longer. Does any solution exist to fight with aliens further in current campaign? Maybe i should edit some code in a savegame - can it help?

Maybe describing the problem in some detail and attaching the savegame in question will.

Have you encountered any alien base? Maybe there is one lurking around that you have to find and deal with (I an no developer however, so this is a pure guess).

One game year ago "standart" UFO wave began to reduce. The amount of UFO crafts on that moment was about 7-8. Several months after there were only 4-5 in a wave. Any UFO activity had suddenly disappeared on August 2086.
Naturally, I didn`t research the final topic to continue my playing and to avoid appearance of annoying promt "want to shoot that orbital alien vessel?" Quite much time has passed since the last research.

See my savegame in the attachment.

Well, that's weird, IIRC alien activity should keep increasing until you either win or are overwhelmed, or that's what was intended anyway.

This is third time i play the campaign. Difficultly is "very hard" in each case. And always i noticed, that the maximum amount of alien crafts reaches specific number (near 10) in the later period of the game. But it's the first time this number starts decreasing. To hell with that - every type of events disappears, except monthly charges and payments! Sooner or later, i'm going into debt.

It's little sad to leave my troops because of this(

Looks like I found a clue, if not solved the problem: in a code part of the savegame
Code: [Select]
<interests
lastIncreaseDelay="17" lastMissionSpawnedDelay="5" overall="1091">...
I have changed value "1091" to "500" (from the assumption, that it`s too large)
Code: [Select]
<interests
lastIncreaseDelay="17" lastMissionSpawnedDelay="5" overall="500">...
And then, to my great relief, new targets began to appear.

Hope, this information could be useful. Do not get stuck!)

Eh, it is anything but a solution, you just "reset"-ed the campaign to a previous state.

Changing any time state will give you nothing. Just edit the
Code: [Select]
overall="1091" by setting smaller value.

Ok. Could you attach the savegame which is not edited and unpacked?
