2.2.1 Questions
« on: January 07, 2010, 06:12:29 am »
So I've been reading the wiki and looking for some information to help me understand the game for the past two days now and there are still some things I want to ask.  I am still very newbie to the game so please try to explain why.

1) IR Goggles-  From what I've read, to use them in 2.2.1 you basically have to use it in your hand like other things but do the goggles affect my accuracy or anything if I wear them as a headgear?

2) For Assault Weapons which is the better overall?  Bolter, Laser, or Particle (Or should particle be used as a sniper?)  (Please explain why)

3) For a regular base (not specialize in any way like production/research/etc) what is a good build and how many worker should I have.  Or instead tell me what is a good build for a regular base like how many of each building. 

4) If I don't tell my workshop to build anything manually will anything be still built?

5) I've read on the wiki about laser defence I think, do I have to wait for a proposal to get that cause currently my defence only shoots missile. (Although that's what I'm guessing from reading I haven't tested it yet)

For now this is all I have to ask.  Thank You

1. They don't do anything in 2.2.1 and neither in 2.3 if I haven't missed anything. It will take some time until the visibility system is implemented and they can actually do something.

2. From memory I'd say first go for lasers and then to particles when you have enough ammo. Lasers because they allow good range, damage for only few TUs and particles because their very good damage. All of this is from memory since I haven't played UFO:AI for some time.

5. It isn't implemented in 2.2.1 yet.

3) One of every building you need. You don't need labs and workshops if you just want to start dropships from there.

4) No.

Hello,

I need help with UFO A.I Verison 2.2.1, is there a way (cheat etc) to remove the timelimit?
The Game ends at 2085 April or so.

Thanks for help

It doesn't stop on a specific date IIRC. You should find out why does it end.

How can new missions be spawned when you win and destroy all aliens?

Ten Aliens new Technology.

They should be on the same base,  Labors and at least 10 aliens.

Sorry, I don't know how far can you go in 2.2.x . I assumed you checked if that '10 alien' info on forum was for 2.2.x too. I didn't check.

Sorry about this Doppelpost.^^
But i managed with the Problem and get all the Technologys, without the Technology Deuterium Missiles.
Storyline comes to the point that all the Earth Nations make Blood Controls about the Alien Virus.
But no more UFOS comes on the Earth, only Terrorattacks.
I have 7 Bases and see the Complete Earth. I wonder why.???
