    RE: [X-COM] Outlaw Star UK fights aliens

    Blatently my stats show that I should be chief scientist; everyone knows that scientists are cowards!

    As to not being the senior officer, my signature tells you why...

    RE: [X-COM] Outlaw Star UK fights aliens

    Spoilered for brevity


    I am pleased to report X-Com's newest development:


    Now that our forces finally have plans for a suitable assault rifle that can be used above and below water, it is my hope that we will see decreased casualties in future missions.

    On another note, I had to make a few difficult choices. I got some very qualified applicants for both chief scientist and chief engineer, but in the end, I decided:

    Please welcome Chief Engineer BaronOfStuff and Chief Scientist kokirininja.

    BaronOfStuff has wasted no time starting work in the machine shop, and under his direction we will soon be able to supply our aquanauts with the new rifles.

    Later, kokirininja will decide which of these directions our research should take:

    ALIEN WEAPONS: It's become painfully apparent that their weapons are better than ours. Hopefully, we can reverse-engineer and eventually replicate them to even things out.

    MEDKITS: With all the gas cannons and torpedoes we have flying around, there's plenty of opportunities for survivable friendly fire. It'd be useful to be able to patch up the poor bastards who are too close to a gas canister when it goes off.

    ALIEN MATERIALS: The aliens use exotic materials for their craft and weapons. Understanding these materials and their properties will be key to developing armor and submarines that can compete with theirs, as well as replicating their weapons.

    THE ALIENS THEMSELVES: We have alien corpses we can dissect at this time. Furthermore, if we can capture an alien live, we could likely interrogate it to learn more about them. Dissection of corpses could help us learn their weaknesses, and interrogating live aliens would likely yield information about their crafts, tactics, and locations of their C&C centers.

    On a last note, here's our current combat roster:



    I've put myself on it, but I will only be on the frontline if MAP32 is attacked or we have a severe shortage of combat personnel.

    -----

    Bad news, people.

    The other day, we detected an alien submarine:


    All the subs we've encountered up until now have been small. This one looked like it was packing enough firepower to turn our attack subs into scrap metal. Furthermore, I don't think the twelve depleted uranium torpedoes they carry would've been enough to drop this thing, so I didn't order an interception. Whatever the risks involved, I can safely say I should have....



    The torpedo launcher does not work above water; Baron will have to abandon it in favor of a gas cannon. Gas cannons and gauss pistols will be distributed to the remaining recruits as their abilities warrant.

    Above all else, you'll need to protect the civilians. If they're getting in your way, taze them if you have to. Whatever you do, though, don't kill them.

    Terror missions are longer than others, so I won't do this one yet. I'll probably finish it tomorrow, though.

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

    Everyone stand in front of me and absorb shots. I'll put on these here sunglasses and try to think of a corny one-liner.

    RE: [X-COM] Outlaw Star UK fights aliens

    Battle report is spoiled because it's huge - 42 captioned screenshots. I have to split it into 5 posts because only 10 images are allowed in a single post. It may seem like a bit much, but honestly I'm cutting corners as it is. Future battle reports will be a lot more compact.

    Here is the battle report of X-Com's attempt to thwart the alien incursion in Miami. All of you fought bravely, but unfortunately not all of you came back.

    January 24, 2040: Battle of Miami


    Attending: Baron of Stuff, Mantis, Asher, Nixie, Somasol 3, Diz 2, Masaka, BloodyLilCorpse, Cuhathol, Nostalgic Wanderer 2


    Nostalgic Wanderer: Did we have to take the tank along? It can't even fire above water!
    BaronOfStuff: Scouting and cover, rookie!
    Mantis: Didn't the briefing say something about the gillmen having strange creatures wandering around that we were supposed to capture?
    Diz: Oh, like Pokemon!
    BaronOfStuff: Yeah, if Pokemon had you personally beating them unconscious with a stunstick. And, failing that, you were supposed lodge antiprotons in their skulls. And, failing that, you'd get turned into a greasy smear. Now send the tank out! We need to secure a landing zone!


    Masaka: Oh, that's not good...looks like they're all over us.
    BaronOfStuff: Hold on, I'll pick one off from the wing of the Triton!


    BaronOfStuff: Or not. I miss my torpedo launcher.

    While the other aquanauts got into their positions, the gillmen wasted no time gunning down civilians and trying to take out the tank.


    I guess it's worth being crammed into a transport ass-to-ass if it means extra scouting and armor when things get hot. Not that I'd know.
    BaronOfStuff: Okay, this time I'll....


    BaronOfStuff: Not again!


    Cuhathol: Awesome, we actually killed something!
    Somasol: Hell yeah! I'm not gonna miss out on th-


    Mantis: I'm convinced, Soma needs to legally change his name to Kenny.


    Nixie: A thing came out of that building, and I'm pretty sure it qualifies as a strange creature! Someone zapfry it!
    Bloodylilcorpse: I'd rather not while there's gillmen around to shoot at me.


    Mantis: Right, we'd better deal with them first. Watch, I'll make these barrels explode and take out both those guys!


    Mantis: Well...I was half-right. Not the half I really wanted to be right about, though.

    [hr]
    Battle of Miami, part 2



    Asher: I've never seen an alien run away like that! Is it scared or what?
    Masaka: Guys, the tank's been hit and it doesn't look good!


    Masaka: Targetting computer's down, it doesn't look good! Whatever they were using went through the armor like it wasn't even there!
    Diz: I'll get the one that shot it!


    Diz: The tank should be safe for now.
    Nixie: Right, now let's capture that thing!


    Nostalgic Wanderer: I killed a gillman nobody else saw. You're welcome.
    Bloodylilcorpse: I didn't not see it, but I can kind of only do one thing at a time here!


    Cuhathol: Got my stun stick ready. Rush the building with me, Diz!


    Cuhathol: Oh crap, never mind!
    Asher: Did that even do anything to the tank?
    Masaka: Tank's fine, but stun that thing!
    Cuhathol: Gladly.


    *BZZZZ-ZT*


    Cuhathol: Wow, that's more effective than our guns usually are.


    Nixie: Uh, guys, we are not in the clear yet!


    BaronOfStuff: Form three squads, people! Me, NW, Nix, and Corpse will flank left! Mantis, flank right with Diz and Masaka! Cuhathol and Asher, sneak into the building and hit that bastard near the stairs point-blank! Oh, wait, another one in the building and MY GODDAMN GAS CANNON IS IMPOSSIBLE TO AIM.

    [hr]
    Battle of Miami, part 3



    Bloodylilcorpse: Luckily, mine isn't. Are you sure it's the cannon that's a problem?


    Diz: One tried to ambush us from that building! I got it, but I'm almost out of ammo!


    Nostalgic Wanderer: Another alien, this one's going to be a pain in the ass.


    Diz: Wha- another creature popped out of that building! I don't have enough antiprotons for this!
    Mantis: Relax, I'll kill it with my explosive gas!
    Masaka: They make pills for that, you know.


    BaronOfStuff: Someone hit this gillman, quick!


    Aaron: Ask and you shall receive.
    Mantis: I don't need to think of a witty reply to you Masaka, that shot'll do.


    Cuhathol: Anyone else notice that all these new aliens like to hide in buildings?


    Cuhathol: Anyone else notice it doesn't do them a damn bit of good?
    BaronOfStuff: Looks like their main forces are down, it's a mopup from here on out! Spread out, search all the buildings, and splatter its brains if it walks on 2 legs and isn't human!


    BaronOfStuff: Okay, time to deal with this one.


    BaronOfStuff: My first direct hit in this whole goddamn mission and the thing's still standing!
    Nostalgic Wanderer: Alright, I suppose I'll...

    [hr]
    Battle of Miami, part 4



    Nostalgic Wanderer: You've got to be shitting me, it survived two direct gas cannon hits!
    Bloodylilcorpse: I bet it won't survive a third shot!


    Bloodylilcorpse: ...*sigh* Especially if I miss.


    Diz: There's a gillman hiding in this building, but I don't have a line of fire!


    Asher: No worries, Diz. We have the power of flanking!


    BaronOfStuff: COCKS, I MISSED AGAIN AND I ONLY HAVE ONE GAS ROUND LEFT!


    Nostalgic Wanderer: FINALLY. Hostile down.


    Diz: One hiding here, too! Shot at it, but I missed and my clip's empty!


    Cuhathol: Go ahead and reload, I've got the door covered.


    Diz: I'll lob a grenade through the door, there's no way he'll get away!


    Cuhathol: Sorry Diz, he got away. Looks like it's up to antiprotons to save the day again!

    [hr]
    Battle of Miami, final part



    Cuhathol: Who's next?!
    Nixie: No one, the rest of the area's clear. Let's head back to base.
    BaronOfStuff: Better yet, let's head to a bar!


    Overall, the mission went very well. Losing one aquanaut, while unfortunate, was better than I'd dared hope. Our funding nations commended us for our performance, realizing that most of the killed civilians had died before we could have possibly saved them.

    KIA: Somasol 3
    Promotions: None

    RE: [X-COM] Outlaw Star UK fights aliens

    Judging by my useless performance other than barking orders, I think it's reasonable to assume I was already in a bar while the original invasion kicked off.


    My greatest achievement, ever.

    RE: [X-COM] Outlaw Star UK fights aliens

    Baron: Don't forget this one:


    Nix: Unfortunately not. No idea why the game decided not to promote anyone, people were scoring kills left and right.

    And yes, I'll have to roll out Somasol 4. I really need to take him off scouting duty.


    Spoilered for brevity
    The war is going well.


    As of January 24, under BaronOfStuff's expert direction, we would have our first gauss rifles ready for use within two days. An additional week and we would have a fully gauss-based army. Baron will stay on torpedo launcher duty, while Nostalgic Wanderer will remain on gas cannon duty.

    Furthermore, on that same day we finished building our new base expansion:

    The alien subs are very difficult to detect, but this new state-of-the-art system will increase our intelligence capabilities by 200%.


    Just days later, the new sonar array proved its worth. We dropped this small alien UFO off the coast of Florida, which means you have another recovery mission.


    We haven't manufactured enough gauss rifles yet to give one to everybody, but things are definitely looking up equipment-wise.
