Hire a shed load of mercs. Set them to all out attack, & let them get on with it. Watch the skies light up.
Just one alien artifact to get. It's the one from the terrorist mission which is causing me some problems. Even with my shiny new military laser, I still get swarmed after my first banzai, balls-out charge. More speed needed maybe so I can open a gap before pass two.
Also survived my first detour to witch space (pre military laser) \0/
Brilliant game, Duncan. I hope you are seeing the MSPs rolling in and can find time to keep extending it.
