Are you sure you are talking about 2.5-dev here?

Fair point, a few missions further into the game I've now noticed that this is a big difference from 2.4

Do soldiers heal at all at bases without hospitals? I tried rotating my injured soldiers off to my fighter bases to serve as the defenders. However they don't seem to be healing at all which defeats the purpose.

Why would they? They aren't receiving any medical care.

In fact in a base with no hospital, soldier will recover HP very, VERY slowly, but wounds won't get better until they receive proper medical care, otherwise they will have lasting sequels, nothing permanent, but their combat performance will degrade, until they are healed properly.

if health regenerates but wounds don't heal, i wonder if it is possible to "heal" the wounds by overflowing them to the negative, perhaps with some additional benefits like negative stat decrease?

(if some reader doesn't know what overflow is, it basically means that the soldier's hand will get so much wounded over and over that the hand will become antimatter (makes sense, doesn't it?))

Ahem: What he means is that the stack will reach a point where it's no longer possible to contain the number of wounds, and invert the value to believe it's a positive number.

it is 'int' type, so good luck overflowing that :P

In fact, due to network messages sending it as a byte, it is capped at 255, so it would need to overflow in a single attack, before the stats are sent over the network channel, with the sanity checks capping it to 255 (and if overflown it would be capped to 0, so no negative stat decrease)
