Add me if you want any questions answered. But I can't guarantee your men and women will get to Cydonia.

Wait for the ufos to land then attack them. Much more loot and points that way.

If you are having trouble with the first game, let alone the first UFO, you're going to have a hard time.

While it takes a while to get them, laser cannons work wonders against early game UFOs.

Always put your units on save time units for snap shot/ auto shot, it will save your life.
If you completely run out of ammo for whatever you are using, grab the corpse's gun that is right next to you. While intercepting larger UFO's, use the Plasma Beam. Long range, what seems like infinite ammo, and what makes it so good is that it does a good amount of damage. Another tip for larger UFO's... Always send out multipul interceptors, but be careful with them. If you keep losing them, get the Next Gen Interceptor, which uses elerium for fuel.

From your base screen click the "purchase/hire" button. Buy two avalanche missile launchers and... 20 avalanche missiles. go back and click the "equip craft" button. Choose an interceptor. Each has two weapons you can equip it with. By default they have one stingray missile launcher and a cannon. replace both with avalanche launchers. Go back to the geoscape view (globe). It will take a while to rearm with the new weapons.

Avalanches do FAR better at shooting down UFO's - in fact the very small ones will occasionally just be completely destroyed. You will still NOT be able to reliably take on "LARGE" or "VERY LARGE" ufo's. They are just too big, too powerful for the weapons you have available at the beginning of the game. Until you have been able to research and build newer fighters and weapons for them the large and very large ufo's will just kick your ♥♥♥. That gives you few options.

I generally just let them go but keep an eye on them in case they actually land - and when they do I jump on it with as many troops as possilble. It means a lot of aliens to have to kill but you get a LOT of loot from them that way. Another option is to use multiple interceptors. Your interceptors WILL get shot and heavily damaged. Often they will just be outright destroyed in one shot. But when you have mulitple interceptors you can have more of them shooting at the big ufo's and you at least stand a chance of taking them down.
