Capturing alien UFO
« on: December 03, 2008, 09:24:37 am »
Hi, I did have a UFO captured, but unfortunately I didnt have UFO hanger so I had the choice to scrap or sell. I chose to sell for the money. Now that I have a UFO hanger, I havent been able to gain another UFO to research. I've done lots more missions or crashed UFO as well as landed, but havent captured one.

Is there any special way to do this?

It's random, you just wait for a landed ufo mission.

In X-com, the ufo's would eventually land or do a terror mission or something.

It's weird that we see landed scouts & fighters because the UFOpedia states that they don't have landing gear.

What`s version of game do you use?
2.2.1 had flying UFOs but very rarely. There are much more UFOs in 2.3 dev.

So there is nothing in game I can do to capture one? I've beaten terros and landed UFOs I guess I just need to get lucky. Thanks for the help I thought I was doing something wrong, like I was still auto-selling them or something

And I am running 2.2.1 I thought that was the stable version.

It was a stable version… Some months ago.

The lack of landing gear would explain why almost every UFO we find on the ground is wrecked.  :D
I'm assuming that the aliens have a not so well thought out program to flight-train the notoriously dim Ortnoks.

WOW! Hahhahahaha.... Now, that is such a very fresh theory which i like! No landing gears, hence they simply POUND landing onto the floor, causing a big diameter on the ground wrecking it. Lol.

Oh, u forgetting something..... they have genetic engineering (> 5000% better than ours). Hence, Psychoing them to know how to fly is nothing. (See Matrix programming..... lol, instantly Trinity knows how to fly tat attack helicopter). lol
