The formatting won't display properly on article pages, and the Recent Changes list doesn't let me expand summarised sets of changes (i.e. if the same page is edited more than once in a day, it comes up with an "X changes" and a tooltip to expand, but the tooltip doesn't work). Also, I can't change the settings on the Recent Changes list (how many, how far back to go, etc.)
- I know retaliation in both games that's triggered by you shooting down a UFO/sub is always the same race as the UFO/sub shot down.
- I know "scheduled" retaliation in UFO (i.e., the retaliation at the start of the month that begins once you research The Martian Solution) is a flat 20% for each race.
I'm asking about "scheduled" retaliation (i.e. Floating Base Attack) in TFTD (after researching The Ultimate Threat). My first guess was that it was also 20% for each race (Aquatoid, Gill Man, Lobster Man, Tasoth, Mixed), but it's not. No Mixed Crews appeared in over 70 trials; that's P < 0.000001. I'm wondering if someone knows whether it actually uses the Alien Appearance Ratios table or something hardcoded like UFO (and if so, what).
(You can still get a Mixed Crew Floating Base Attack, but only by shooting down Mixed Crew subs.)
