FAQ

Do I need the latest patch for Freedom Force to run this mod?
YES, please use FF patch 1.3 to run this mode properly. The saved games won't work without it. Get the patch at www.freedomfans.com

Where did you get the idea for this?
Consider this game our living X-Com fan fiction. The story takes place shortly after the invasion. X-Com already has learned some new tech, but has yet to meet all of the enemies that intend on the Earth's destruction.

How do I run the mod?
-Double click the ICON CREATED on your desktop

How did you handle turns (since the original X-Com game was turn-based)?
Unfortunately, the Freedom Force engine doesn't allow for turn-based combat. The closest you can get to turn-based combat is to make use of the Pause feature via the Spacebar.

How did you handle ammunition, or the lack thereof?
Instead of thinking about it like that, think about the original game where each member had a set amount of time to do certain things. Equate amount of energy to time units, and it should become at least mildly clear to you.

I seem to remember getting killed almost instantly if I took a blast in the original, but now each squad member is pretty tough, didn't you work on game balance?
Due to restrictions of the AI, the aliens are very aggressive. There's no way you'd survive any of the missions if you could get killed with one hit. Look at it this way, based on the endurance of the aliens, you better pray you can survive with what you have, endless ammo and all.

[Any questions] about why some alien doesn't act like it did in the original X-Com?
AI restriction, that's the easiest and I guarantee, the most honest answer we can give for any questions of this type.
