comment Releasing a vassal as a vassal?
Ah ok, I get it now. My comment didn't make much sense. Has been some time since I posted the question and I got confused about the situation. ;) Thanks for doing the research!

comment Releasing a vassal as a vassal?
If you say "they remain your vassals", who is "they"? Your vassal or the vassal of your vassal?

comment What's the point of the Dispatch skill?
Hm well, this would still be a very rare scenario. (Do regularly use this skill?) Stands a bit out compared to all the other skills which you can/have to regularly apply in the game. But unless someone comes up with another use case, there probably isn't more to it than that.

comment What's the point of the Dispatch skill?
Hm, you usually never have more than one or two Warchiefs or Captains with you at the same time, so I am not sure why you would need an extra skill for that. You can just easily grab them and select "kill". But maybe they just ran out of skill ideas and did this one for the stylez ;)

@Lokuzt I appreciate your answer, but there is no need to beg for an accept right after posting it. I get a notification of your answer anyway and many people (like myself) allow at least a day to wait for new answers coming in. That behavior might be counterproductive, just a friendly advice. :)

No offense, but you seriously could not figure that out by yourself?

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)

Confirmed empirically

As I said, ultimate Edition includes both DA and ToA.

comment Does it make sense to colonize planets in enemy territory?
@Shadur Thanks for your comments. Any chance you could flesh this out a bit to a full answer? I find the whole influence and territory topic very confusing, and couldn't find a good explanation anywhere yet. Even the GalCiv Wiki is really short on the topic and leaves out many aspects.

Another option I thought of only later: Maybe you just implicitly get the previous techs in the deal as well?

comment Is it possible to defeat Lu Bu during the Battle of Hulao Gate?
In the default difficulty. (whatever that is) But I guess the question which rewards that yields might be out of the scope of this question anyway.

I beat him finally, but did not get anything out of it (as far as I can tell).

comment How does the save system work?
Ok, great to know, thank you. I know about the save sign, but I am usually to busy in the game doing other things to notice it.
