comment What does the middle side in the fifa 14 choosing controls mean?
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

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.

comment How does the save system work?
What about things like privacy invasions, normal crimes or finding the hidden weapon caches? Does the game save in those instances?

comment Is it possible to defeat Lu Bu during the Battle of Hulao Gate?
Hm, thanks. Then I probably was just not careful enough. Had no problem beating him down to 10%, though. I just used the weapon change attack (not sure what the name is) over and over again. (Might not be possible on a harder level)

comment How to allow my friends to join my Risk of Rain match?
I'd strongly advise against disabling your firewall completely. You can do this for a very short time to test if the firewall is the problem, but keeping it off for a longer time is a serious security risk.

What about damage taken by water? Does that raise over time as well?

Downvoter, care to comment?
