Description
Raider Faction Bases is a metamod meant to help the various raider faction mods you may install (by default, supporting the ones I've made) appear more frequently throughout your campaign.

Description
Bases are generated upon either campaign start or when you load into a campaign for the first time with this mod installed. The mod will try to spread out raider faction HQs evenly throughout the world.

When you do missions in a given location, it'll try to spawn that faction's encounter sitrep in your mission on top of whatever existing sitreps that may already exist for the mission, as long as the sitreps (or other possible conflicts) don't conflict with the requirements of that faction's sitrep.

This spawn chance is controlled by .ini variables, located in the mod's XComRaiderBases.ini.

It also ramps up over time: it will initially not kick in for your first month, and then apply a halved chance of spawning as defined in the .ini until around May.

Eventually, XCOM can establish enough of a relationship with the resistance factions to be able to do covert actions, that will allow you to precisely locate, and then destroy these HQs, reverting their sitrep behaviour back to normal if you so choose. (Plus you do get chunks of supplies and intel for doing so.)

Lol, that is cool. I did not know that the stats were set to be random. I already have the random stats mod on every enemy and that would explain why some had like 2 health and other 9. Thank you for the info!

I think this might be a result of how I use random stats for these faction units: it might be overriding the second wave options. I'll have to see if it's something I can fix on this mod's end or if I'll have to request a highlander fix for it.

Just following up on my previous question:

I have noticed that the Beta/Delta/Theta Strike does not work on these factions but do for MOXC and Black Legion. Is there a way for all of these factions to get those bonuses?

Also, I love all these mods! Keep up the good work. My current run through is such a challenge with all the enemy mods and vast changes to the main game.

Thanks. Don't think I saw the second mission yet, but maybe I'll still see it.

No, there is no tactical mission. You complete one covert op to locate the base, and another one to take it out.
lordabizi Mar 30 @ 11:52am 
To be clear, is there an actual tactical mission associated to a base? Because I am a little bit confused. Is there anything else to do after doing the covert op of the base?

I translate the Simplified Chinese language for this mod.

THIS (raiders and other raider mods) adds new depth to the story... Firaxis ought to have included it in the first place. AWESOME SAUCE!
