After secon day playing, including some interesting missions like the alien nest, i started getting used to the game mechanics, but i have a few questions.
There is a melee weapos proficency skill, but i’m not able to manufacture i dont say a samurai sword or a lightsaber but not even a machete or a swiss knife. Whats the point of having the skill? Thre also is an expert melee skill, i want to hope thet it includes the proficency one even if the game just says additional damage.
Same thing for PDW proficency, no way to build a PDW even if i can build assault and sniper rifles that are technically the same difficulty
There is also a shotgun proficency skill, in the assault tree, but assault troopers are, according to what the game says havent tried yet equipping one because i dint realize that dash allows me to run to point blank and shoot, already proficent with shotguns.
When you recruit a new soldier it comes with custom armor and weapons: shouldnt i be able to go to that faction and buy at least the ammo for them. I agree that building a laser or a gauss gun requires a specific research
Is there a way to customize a little bit my soldiers. In XCOM i had my riflemen green, my assault yellow and my heavies red so i knew at first sight what a soldier was. I’m not asking tattoos and pink flower skins for weapons like in XCOM2, just a little thing to make the gameplay easier
LAst question for now at least: where are the savegames on my HD? Just looked at documents/games/phoenix point/save
Fix the AI of civilians. I almost lost a soldier because an idiot stopped at a door blocking the passage and in the room nearby my poor was facing two crabs. Civilians should run to a corner and duck there until they see an alien not run aimlessly around and even if they are panicked and run a doorway is a really bad place to stop even if you dont have a military training one of my soldier will sure kindly tell them: ‘[insert you favourite way to call him] move your [censored] arse away’
Arent there too many defend the haven mission. Maybe because i left a nest living but every few hours i have to go somewhere to defend my friends and have no time to explore
