This is one of those deals where you name your troopers after us, right?

You can throw a Lorric in there if you want. :)

You know what, instead of a Lorric, I think I'll put in one of my characters from my WoD demo campaign. You might end up short on female roles, so this will give you one.

callsign - Coolhand

sex - Female

race - White

general appearance - I've no idea what you can do with character creation in this game. I'm not too fussed. Short (not too short, like 5ft 4 sort of short.) Maybe you could give me some soldiers to choose from? I'd prefer her to look tough rather than pretty, but not butch either. Just make her look like a soldier, not a model. Like her hair cut like a soldiers', not flowing down her back or something. Don't make her blonde. Perhaps black hair. Maybe I'd like to see her short sleeved so we can put some muscle on her, I'm tired of seeing these skinny pretty girls running around in games where they're supposed to be warriors. But I'm not fussed either way as long as she looks like a soldier.

role - Sniper (hopefully she'll live longer that way, and my character being short will help too! :D )

 
Callsign - Brownie
Sex - Male
Race&Appearance - doesn't matter. European/North American with brown hair if you like.
Role - Rifleman

Change the name. That's it.
But you do get tons of unique portraits (tht you can't change). but we can have 12-20 startign soldiers, I'm sure I'll find some fitting faces.

Nice. This isn't the only forum I've posted tis, so ATM we have 9 people in.

I already started and begun recording, but something went funky and the light scouts UFO is empty. Gonna have to re-validate all files and re-install the mods and give it another try.

Ere we go!

Due to a stupidly high number of problems (first missing audio, then audio out of sync, then resolution problems, etc..) I split the first episode into technically 2.
 A very short intro an our first ground mission. There were deaths.

I like your commentary. And Coolhand will do nicely. :)

So, she's the only female on the team.

Hell yeah.

That's what I'm talkin' about. :D

Absolutely hilarious what happened to Redshirt. Taken out with the very first shot fired. But at least he survived, so I wonder if it will happen again the next time he takes to the battlefield. I wonder if whoever picked that guy wishes they'd picked a different name? :lol:

Sucks for whoever it was who chose the other guy though. These aliens are killing your guys with one shot and they're like tanks when you're shooting them, what?! Really added some tension to the video with two guys going down in one hit like that. I enjoyed it, and I'm glad Coolhand got through, I think she got an assist as well as that kill.

It's a fine balance. In the vanilla game, 99% of aliens don't have armor (even wen they do), but more HP.
One of the mods reduces their HP, but adds armor. So they are tougher.
The mod also adds a few new weapons and I tried to reduce the number of aliens in the UFO's to make the mission a bit eaiser, but I failed.

Spoiler:
Yay I didn't get killed.

Last time I bothered dropping my name into one of these let's plays (XCom TFTD), my guy had one mission in which he didn't die but instead just disappeared.

I don't know how dangerous losing soldiers is in this game. And of course the missions will surely get harder as you go along.

Does this mean you'll start over, or will you be able to tweak the settings between now and next mission?

It could also be fun just to see how long you can last...

Part THREE:

Don't worry, well be getting better guns.
My mod adds advanced ballistics and I can pretty much tweak anything as I go if I want to.

@Dekker - Great, I wanted a rocket launcher in my team. You'll be on board for the next mission.

There we go, put a few shots into the aliens, and got a promotion to Sergeant. Not bad at all. :)

Some bigger aliens this time. And I thought the last ones were tanks...

You took down two UFOs in Part 2, did you play the other one off camera?

Die, alien.

And another assist too. Things are going smoothly now. I'm surprised Xeno HQ is in Africa.
