    But I wanted to ask you, was splitting it up like this comprehensible? I feel like pictures only convey so much.
    I think it looks fine, got a sequence to it with all the important bits. Might want to hear input from someone who's familiar with it though.

    Mhm, but knowing 80% of members having never played it can understand is more important.

    I just press the hotkey for screenshot each time I think is needed. That'd usually

    1) before I move
    1.5) if aliens appear or overwatch from them happens
    2) after I've moved
    3) action/shot chance
    3.5) result of the action

    The ones with .5 are the ones always messiest. It's not a moment that can be meticulously scanned to show everything so I just wing it and hope I can decipher it later

    Thanks to Cake~

    You were made to be a TMF poster. You have the right temperament and can exchange insults with anyone. I know the majority of the site hates your entrails, but that just makes you more of a Temeffian to me.

    i think you should cut down on the filler screenshots. maybe take one as you get in to combat so show everyones position, maybe once for each death or if something notable happens

    might be worth explaining your plan of action in the posts so people who dont know the game understand what your doing

    no they are a bonus objective, the main point of them in to entice noobs in to getting killed

    The objective is to defeat the aliens. Bigger objective is soon to capture one

    what part worked and didn't work

    Okay this time I'm going to detail the mission upfront for everyone, explain what's what and why.

    then I'm going to get few screenshots when nothing's going on between kills, just to canvas the map for you.

    Kills will be named by who did it, and then the aftermath of the mission.

    this time I chose my soldiers. It's GP, Void, Crisp and Allara.

    Let's start with some off-mission stuff.



    Each mission has a panic level usually. 5 dots on a line = Country leaves come next month.
    Mission done in the country lowers that panic, but increases if you don't do a mission there.
    3 countries to choose from each time= 2 get their panic higher, 1 gets it lower.

    After 1 mission this is the outcome. Satellite I'm launching lowers the panic as well. I chose Australia over Egypt, but I gotta keep my eye on every country at 2 dots.

    It's not all about dropping Ayy Lmao's. some countries will leave if I don't cycle the protection effectively. That Red 8 dotted line? that's how many need to go before I lose.

    Alright, enough talking.

    Mission Briefing.





    This is how it goes. I scan, it picks up missions. but I know this time it'll pick up an UFO.



    Yep, so I need to get that.



    This is the Crew. Squadleader @Great Potato; , and bitches three. @Void; his right hand, @Heart; his apprentice, and @Crispinianus; Thelma to Void's Louise.



    And this is the mission! Locate the Ufo, Kill the survivors, Collect Meld if possible, Don't damage the UFO more if possible.

    First 2 are a must.



    Highlights.





    Here's a view of the starting area. a Shed you can go inside to, with a roof you can climb up on. those white plastic towers can be climbed up on as well for increased sight and aim. I used them and the roof to gain an advantage over the aliens on the ground. In the Top middle you can partially see I had crispy there on the roof, Void on a tower while GP was next to some hay and Crispy had yet to move. I think.

    I sent Crispy to switch places with Void later.



    First Aliens were inside the Shed. Crispy was in a tower overlooking the entrance, GP was near the entrance, and Allara was in the roof, with access to the second level inside.

    I sent Void to the side to block another exit.




    First Damage dealt by GP, unfortunately not a killing shot.



    Void rushing to the side window.



    And Allara ready to aim at them from the top.

    So Set Up was complete, all was left to execute.



    Aliens, using the Mindmeld(Improved Aim/Crit, but also death for both if the sender dies.) Shot at Crispinianus. Thankfully the damage was passable.




    He returned fire. dealing the same damage.




    And Allara Killed the sender of the mindmeld, killing the receiver as well.

    Now we jump forward to the founding of the UFO. The number you've seen in orange refers to the meld canister that's expiring. It was Collected.



    this is another area shot.

    as our troops got closer,



    This new type of ayy Lmao was awoken. a being of almost pure energy.



    it shot and missed. it's a usual rookie killer for the inexperienced.




    Void took the shot and got its health down.



    And Crispy sealed the deal. Odds were in my favor.

    After that, Allara moved to the opposite corner of the barn's roof from the starting area.




    while GP collected the last Meld.






    Allara shot again and dealt 2 damage.

    Aliens used the mind meld and moved, triggering Crispy's reaction shot nearby.






    Aliens Missed as well, dealing no damage.



    Now up on the roof, GP took his shot against the alien who was the receiver.



    one animated moment later, the alien was dead.




    The last alien, fearing for its life, ran, only to get into the sights of allara and void.

    with both of them missing(reaction shots have bad aim).




    And thus ended the mission. GP, Void and Crispy killed 1 each, Allara killed 2.



    and that's a wrap! all objectives completed!




    Aftermath.





    Here's your Squad with everyone promoted. everyone's a different class as well.



    Here's the current list of objectives. To capture a live alien. should happen around mission 5.



    Squadleader GP, the moral backbone of the unit.



    Void, the Sniper of the unit.



    Allara, the Man who can save you from a pinch.



    And Crispy, the heavy weapons specialist.





    @Ccrack; @ink spot; @Zentos;

    thoughts? should I keep it like this?

    Thanks to Cake~

    ... Thanks.

    I appreciate it!

    But be warned, at any point you might die, and after that I can't bring you back!

    There's 7 ranks to get from Rookie to Squaddie, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Major and lastly, Colonel.

    Only few reach that prestige.

    Did you get a sense of what's going on?

    Thanks to Cake~

    Zentos, Schnarf, Mak, Ccrack, Aether, GP, Void, Crispy and You are Squaddies, while Ink, Chess, Nord are Rookies.

    that's 12 soldiers.

    I'm going to make another squad of 4 rookies for the next mission.

    Who do you want to see there? you can choose.

    Alright it's been a WHILE.

    And the new crew @Heart; picked will have to wait 1 mission still. it takes 3 days for them to arrive and sadly the mission came first!

    Briefing.






    So, that reward is good. more money => I can build. Researchers => Research tech => Better Gear.


    @Schnarf; @Zentos; @Game Master; @Ink Spot;

    It's your time to shine!


    Mission.






    3 turns until the bomb can't be disposed. There's power nodes to make it get charged SLOWER.

    those are those faintly glowing green cubes, 2 pictured.

    I moved them further to get them down, then enemies appeared.





    Ink Spot was first to get the alien on his sights.



    Good Job! Ink gets promoted!



    Another Appears. this time a different, Longer ayy lmao.




    Chess tried to get him with overwatch, sadly to no avail.



    The Thin Man Poisoned them.



    Zentos and Chess Panicked and tried to shoot the alien, but both missed.


    It hit and did 2 damage.



    Thin man moved and hit Zentos.




    I took it easy and killed him using a grenade.



    Afterwards, Ink healed Zentos from poisoning and gave back his health.



    a third alien appeared.




    chess returned fire!

    It hit!

    And He got promoted too!!!



    4th alien appeared!

    I moved Schnarf closer to get him.



    And Found the bomb. So I was close!



    Schnarf got a good aim, with his shotgun.



    All that's left to disarm the bomb.



    Chess Healed himself.



    After the bomb was disarmed, I was warned more aliens would appear.

    So I overwatched everyone!






    1 down. Overwatch works in pairs.







    It's Schnarf's time to show why he's the best.





    And That's that!

    Everyone killed at least 1 alien, schnarf killed 3!



    Aftermath.





    So No support for this Squad. 2 snipers, 1 assault and a heavy!





    And that's the result after 2 missions! Schnarf is in lead with the most kills so far!





    Sorry for the delay, hope you enjoyed!

    Thanks to Cake~
