You have played X-COM, right?


CB74D3DF8C6C8C8ADD8AB143134B55AAAC39436B



I'm not on about Enforcer Interceptor the recent abomination from 2K Games with their squad limit of five and difficulty line; I'm on about the alien-grenade-in-sub-multikill of Terror from the Deep and the Chrysalid Butterfly Effect of UFO Defense. And let's be honest here - if you've not played X-COM, you've strayed too far from General Discussion, friend.


Xenonauts is a spiritual sequel to those timeless games which are so very suited to LPs. There are differences, but anyone familiar with X-COM will be able jump right in no bother. This LP will be Ironman on Veteran difficulty, and will become a blind LP a few updates in.

In the best interests of acquiring protecting the world's supply of oil our asylum is based in the Middle East, specifically the island of Crete. First thing I do is requisition 5 more Scientists so we can fully staff our single Laboratory before ordering the construction of more Living Quarters, another Workshop, a Medical Centre and another Radar Array to enhance our detected.

We currently have 2 Condors - slow fighters equipped with a Cannon Hardpoint and two Light Missile Hardpoints, which we will need to supplement ASAP. Our dropship, the Chinook, has room for 8 soldiers.


D5A54B5757AD022BF915BA5347C5756D90E6385B



:salute:

The glorious soldiers of mankind under their alias. Stats are self explanatory, basic kit is unlimited, and as ever in these LPs - I will need volunteers to defend humanity against the invaders, catch plasma with your faces and take friendly fire up your arses. First come first server, and once we get the first 8 we begin.

The current roles below are available, and I shall avoid parting you with your Veras and your Saschas for the most part - exceptions being when you're the most qualified soldier to handle our big guns.

Basic
Recce
: Equipped with a Pistol and Shield, you are the most valuable member of the team, scouting ahead to detect the enemy.
Rifleman: Equipped with a Rifle, you form the backbone of the fire-team.
Assault: Equipped with a Shotgun, you are king of breaching and close-quarters combat.

Specialist
Sniper
: Equipped with a Precision Rifle, you will be relied on for making that single shot count.
HMG: Equipped with a Machine Gun, you bring the dakka.
Rocketeer: Equipped with a Rocket Launcher, you blow shit up.

Armoured
Pilot
: You operate our aircraft against the alien fleet.
Tanker: You crew any of the fighting vehicles we build.

inb4 Brazilian Slaughter slaughered on his first mission.

I am a traditionalist, and traditionalists respect tradition. If to die so that my world can live becomes a tradition, then, oh well, there's always more from that cell culture it came from.

What the fuck, Ulm? I'm the sniper, damnit!

Well, considering that two snipers is actually a viable build...:troll:

Since the only guy on his starting roster with a nordic name had <50 str, I picked the role that gets armour last. :smug:

In the Beginning...

Update 1: 1979/9/1 - 1979/9/7

First contact happens off the coast of New Zealand, strange lights being seen out as sea before a sighting of a UFO is reported. Way out of range of our Interceptors and Radar, we can only offer our condolences to the local government and offer to site our future bases closer. We unlock our first research options. The choice of Interceptor or the Scout Car is easy enough.

1F4806DCF52BB52F42DE810020B3B6C949694773


A small UFO is detected. CommissarDraco is scrambled in his Condor :salute:

0E9759E8C6030E4A2008327BFB12509EA788F1CF


Immediately afterwards a second UFO shows up on our radar and Condor-2 is sent to intercept. This UFO takes the scenic route across Egypt, allowing Condor-2 to reach it first.

92C19B08860B2B018ABE071E96DF0C46A17EC5D6


Oh shit...

B6E0C92651C3385834A65A0B01F4636B099A8A68



Commissar catches up with his target, ready to lose his kill virginity.

7497456FAEF6D526E0BAE97408EFE80535FFFDFD


...

C17E3C8E9438B42AAC782A572E26192E2C0A0210


Both Interceptors out of action, I order a 3rd Condor, but it'll be 72 hours before arrival. Until then, we've got no teeth.
:whatho:

UFO-01 lands. Maybe Commissar Draco did enough damage before being taken down? Facing the prospect of being unable to do anything, I order in the troops. Death or Glory! Meanwhile, UFO-02 taunts us by landing closer to our base while Charlie-1 is in the air.

74216716A81C9E7C5FF2DB790085E63753238B19

:rage:
UFO-01 took off at the last possible moment and gunned down our dropship.

RIP Cpl. Tytus :salute:
RIP Cpl. MotherMachinae :salute:

Update 1.5: 1979/9/7 - 1979/9/19
We're looking at a minimum of 2.5 days to recover our aircraft, and that isn't taking into account the repairs that will be needed.

18CC98F760F3716B15A34A929B0F779714F53DF2


Condor-3 has arrived in base, her pilot hungry for vengeance. UFO-01 is still flitting around - our honour is on the line.

875C00AD7B2A85EEE5125F4D81A66575320F2CBD


Condor-3 succeeds where Commissar Draco failed, but with no dropship we are unable to launch an assault on the downed UFO. Tytus and MotherMachinae will hopefully be satisfied by the way local forces nuked them from orbit :salute:

FB7CB267A811B0834C9AA0514E88D6C9D7930B18


The next 3 days are quiet, allowing command to recover from the horrific events of early September. But soon enough our radars detect another alien vessel above Russia.

8854758C6F80066E418BEEDD44172A14A82AF0D8


Condor-1 and Condor-2 are still being repaired, but Condor-3 is enough to deal with the UFO :salute:

B42000861AAFEAB5163632ACD7CCE96BD2116E8B


The dropship is grounded, so once again we are forced to alert the local government about the UFO crash site rather than raid it ourselves.

A3FB2D62959DD9DEAF4CDA1B949946A94F1BF38A


6 days pass before we detect another UFO at the very South-East edge of our radar. Condor-1's new pilot teams up with Condor-2 and move to take it down as our soldiers lock and load.

Reporting for shield-bearing duties. Give me a shield and I'm ready to go, or better yet, give me 2 of them so I can protect my back.

The update has been updated with the second half of what it should have contained.


Having now got ShareX up and running I'll be able to do proper updates rather than spend time battling a slow upload process.


Our first mission is complete and it was glorious :smug:

Wow. Now that is a rough way to start the game.

Also, posting to subscribe to thread, will wait until my own overdue demise in the other LP before I try and sign-up as a plasma-sponge here. :M

I'm not planning to let you die yet, Stabby. You're a glorious riflemurderperson, and I'm getting you the Order of Terra :love:


[edit]


You got the 20th kill during the alien base raid... then you got impregnated by a Chrysalid. :negative:

Your posthumous award will be sent to your loved ones back at home, hero of Codexia :salute:
