Re: Help! I'm so confused!

You only need the vanilla XCOM 2 with no DLC for Long War 2 to work. LW2 does work with the little DLCs for XCOM 2, but it does NOT work with War of the Chosen. If you have WotC, you can still play LW2; just select the non-WotC version of the game in the launcher.

Re: Mechtoid > Cyberdisk > Sectopod

Those were indeed good days. I actually spent a couple of days trying to make a "mortarpod" -- basically a mini-sectopod that only had the rocket artillery launch ability, and not the main gun or the little plasma turret. It was intended to be an overwatch-wall breaker (kinda like real mor...

Re: Children of a Dead Earth

I've seen Children of a Dead Earth but not played it. I suspect we're actually drawing from some of the same sources -- the incomparable Atomic Rockets web site chief among them.

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #2: Factions

Nice. I like the back-handed compliment to Julian Gollop: yeah we have the Phoenix Project but in our version they just run away... Sigh. I swear this is a case of convergent creativity; I go for nods to other properties that are a little more subtle than that. Maybe I oughta run a contest for a re...

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

So one of my goals for Terra Invicta is to let players explore the strategic geography (or, more accurately, strategic astrography) of the Solar System, so we're using actual orbital elements and other characteristics of various planets and interesting asteroids. That means coming up with mining pro...

What will begin to obsolete boost is your ability to build a self-sustaining space economy; that is, you can build your ships and habs from stuff you mine in space.

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

In an earlier iteration of the design we had separated out a nation's research score from an engineering score, but did away with that as too fiddly. The current design largely tracks back to GDP, with research set by several additional factors -- education, democracy, unrest and a concept called 'c...

The factions correspond directly to the ideologies. And, yes, they've got better names. At the moment, they are: Humanity First The Resistance The Academy The Peacekeepers The Initiative The Phoenix Project The Servants I'll let you match those to ideologies :). This may not be the final versions or...

We're developing in Unity and C#, but my discussion of the term "human" above wasn't really a reference to some problem in the code, just more in how we communicate about the game.

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

Forgive me for asking a stupid question as I know this was likely written in bold letters somewhere, but is this going to be a multiplayer game? Are there any plans to create a trading system between factions? And lastly, will conflict between factions involve ground units or purely political press...

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

- What ballpark are you aiming how long a single (successful) campaign should take? ~10 hours? ~50 hours? ~200 hours? Probably not 200. You'd have to be crazy make a game that long :p We've got some targets for this, but it's also something we can move around a little more easily than you might exp...

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

Ah, right, so you'll be building habs on and around various Solar System bodies. The ones with mines will contribute to the common pool, which any of your other habs can draw from. (Or, possibly, we require you to build a hab module that retrieves resources from the common pool). The tricky part abo...

Thank you for reply. As a softcore Xcom2 vanilla player, I usually only have to keep track of supply, intel and soldier status. Other resources usually won't be playthrough-breaking problem when I follow strategy guide, and don't need constant management. In LW2, producing and managing weapons and ...

Re: Terra Invicta Dev Diary #3: Resources

As it happens, one of my deep temptations is to add more space resources, so we can break out stuff like alkali metals, deuterium, helium-3 and other materials that are interesting from a space development and warfare perspective. That also leads to more tradeoffs in deciding where to build (and sei...
