Question, and possible discussion, for this mechanic in the upcoming full release of the game.
If the Pandora Virus destroys a Haven, does it turn that Haven into a Nest? Or a Lair, if the population count happened to be high enough (or the aliens still had enough forces left over to do that), and so on? I imagine if this did happen, there’d then be an alien nest out in the open air, and it might be a bit stronger, but it’d also be wide open to aerial attack & bombardment you could use.
And would a similar thing happen for bases? If so, would we then see different nest & lair missions where we go attack on “corrupted base template” missions, where the aliens have put spawners in our old base rooms and we gotta go in and clean them out?
