[Finished] X-Com Terror From The Deep - Ironman Stupid
« on: July 22, 2016, 05:59:01 pm »

Let's play TFTD in Superhuman Ironman
Because X-Piratez was too easy.



"Heroic" death!


Splendid designs!


TERRIBLE weaponry!


Explosions!

Fight the alien/cthulhu/what-the-hell-is-this menace! Enlist to X-Com today! (Post in this thread to get named)

So the story is: I wanted to stream recordings of OpenXcom X-Piratez but I needed training in the usage of capture and broadcasting software first. So what is the best way to get experience than to have another bad shot at TFTD?

But the campaign took an unexpected turn. Aliens died, aquanauts survived, and researches were completed. I got hours of video in and it grew big enough to get its own thread, because we sure took the long ride now.

Oh and I'm french, very french. Therefore my accent is terrible, have fun.

About the difficulty
This is a run on the hardest setting, superhuman ironman.

This is an OpenXcom campaign so there is differences compared to the original DOS game:

I also activated the following mods:

Kat is a total badass. Nice to see her doing her part. That grenade inside the ship had me worried for a bit.

If you want to spare some room for your mission harvests, make use of one of your other bases as a warehouse for excess stuff not in use; from excess weapons/ammo to even Zrbite and Aqua Plastics. They take up a surprising amount of room when not in use (building ships/armor and such, and sometimes, you don't want to sell certain things for one reason or another, especially craft materials. I generally ship units of 50-100 AP/Z at a time until a warehouse eventually runs out of room. I mean, a little soon becomes alot.). Transfer rates are pretty cheap and worth it, especially if you get plenty of excess crap from mission to mission. And it also keeps HQ nice and tidy. Just remember to keep a minimum amount to keep your troops supplied (like 1.5x the amount they need per-mission, and re-supply accordingly)), and instead of buying/building more stuff, just transfer back re-supply from the warehouse for a cheaper price overall, and in less time.

EDIT:
Wouldnt hurt to also warehouse some live alien captures, in case research on some things take a bit longer than expected, and you still want to accumulate a few more live subjects (to sell or for research; should also motivate live capturing for a slight income boost too; mainly selling soldiers or excess higher-ups/terror units, which sell far better than corpses.). My latest XCOM playthrough had me pretty much stunning nearly-every alien I came across.

Yep, I started offloading stuff away and preparing one more base for support.

I have some bad news however... remember the stupid part of "Ironman Stupid" ? Well...

Last time I played TFTD, many moons ago, I stopped playing because a lobsterman, with a reaction shot after my pointman shot it, took out my three best soldiers on the first turn of a terror mission.

This is funny because that's exactly what happened with a Deep One on that boat.
