I suppose you all have heard about stuff which is planned. Mission types, different factions and independent havens, that there will be transports and raids between them, and the mist with aliens will be spreading from the see or other water sources. But I wonder if there will be weather effects or some cataclysmic elements included. Imagine that Pandora Virus can increase the magnitude of those events. Maybe some havens could be “offline” for some time or request help from nearby havens during such incidents. They could loose some buildings and production at least temporarily.
EDIT: Having that in mind we would need to prepare for such events with some sophisticated technology (which can be in Synedrion tech tree). Of course havens in regions affected by such event would be less attractive… so to counter this maybe they could produce more food, supplies or knowledge (or whatever resources may be on geoscape).
I have just read about hurricane hitting US coastline and wondered how huge impact it will have on population.
And this is hurricane. Mix of temperature, steam and ocean current. What if PV will have creatures of Behemoth size burrowing under ground? Whey can cause tremors or even earth quakes shattering transport and power supply. Imagine creatures sitting on the ocean bottom with enough power to hit continental plate, which will also cause huge tidal waves or tsunamis, which in return will benefit PV in acquiring more bio-mass.
