    Try to get an interview with CC.

    UFO:AI has lots of ideas but I'd like to see a functional v 2.2 released and a larger variety of maps.

    Will do, but those guys have proven to be either very shy or very lazy when it comes to interviews in the past.

    I offer to translate the questions into czech and the answers back into english again. (This is relevant, because the developers have proven to be not so well-versed in english)

    Heck, I might even try to visit them in person, once I find out where they hide!

    Never played X-Com, but I'm itching to find another game like Ja2. This seems to be the only clone that does not introduce retarded real time combat, so I guess it's one of the last hopes.

    So, it seems after some initial reactions no one came up with any questions. Or are you all still working on them?
