comment How is enemy progression determined in Xenonauts?
After taking a look into the gameconfig.xml, I believe you are correct. There are a whole lot of "Ticker" variables that seem to influence the rate of alien progress. Nevertheless certain events seem to boost that. Without seeing the source code itself it will be hard to tell how the system works exactly, though.

comment Does stunning enemy types you already captured yield any benefit?
Good answer. It should be noted that unfortunately stunning an enemy does not seem to count as a kill (as far as I can tell), so this strategy might rob your soldiers of some medals.

Just a guess, but it may be connected to the milestones the game sets for you. You can see them in the lower right of the Geoscape screen.

comment Is Xenonauts deterministic?
Well, savescumming is still possible in a deterministic game (just try something else each time you load), so that alone would not really answer my question.

comment Can you reclaim resources from enemy starbases?
Thanks for your comments, I guess I will have to test it and provide an answer myself then. Pretty sure the Steam Version is ToA. For now it seems that resources get destroyed, unless you know another way to capture them (influence ignored)

comment Can you reclaim resources from enemy starbases?
Ultimate Edition, bought and started over Steam. I am by no definition a GalCiv expert. If there are significantly different answers for each version, it would be optimal if an answer could point them out. (I am aware that this might be too much to ask)
