    Welcome to The Think Tank.

    This is an area where you guys can discuss things out of character about anything to do with the x-com series. Enjoy.

    Game tips and advice for Commander Odd are probably best left as comments on his videos.

    I had a question! Do all soldiers start out as Private? I was hesitant to give my character a rank, simply cause I didn't know if that played a factor ingame.

    Your soldier starts of with the rank Rookie. The game will show what rank characters are and when they get promoted.

    Wait, will you still be sticking to every Sunday? Or is this just a special occasion?

    Sundays will be the regular time. If all the journals get updated in the first 24 hours, I'll do another episode for this Sunday as well :)

    Would the revisions turn up to xcom on time or late?

    Grelite kind of addresses this in his last post of the recruiting section here:

    Quick questions: How long would I have to make journals? also: are we able to make journals of RP outside of combat? as in: me and X (X= someone else within the XCOM initiative) get into a fight or become friends, or even that I see a friend whilst he/she is in the infirmary? (these questions are on the video, if you answered there, don't answer it again, I'd hate to waste your time)

    I've answered your question on YouTube. I hope this is clear enough.

    EDIT: Sorry, I misread. If you are on the squad on the mission, you have to write your journal before the next mission unless you've specified you will be unavailable. Everyone else can post as much or as little as they want, though we obviously like to see people on the roster in the game being active.

    I am wondering if soldiers are allowed to bring devices like ipods and laptop for music, data or whatever.

    Offline devices are fine as long as they are checked upon entry. Laptops are allowed, but the internet access is limited and goes through the XCOM network - monitored.

    So how did we get to Asia? Did we get the money to buy a airplain ticket, did we have to pay it ourselfs or were we picked-up by some people from X-COM.

    Transport was provided by X-COM. Something alike the Skyranger.

    Thanks for the answer. Would anyone who has passed the recruitment wanna join in some of screen socialisation (think now about it, the way how I said it sound like I'm asking if anyone wants to have sex IC but I don't)

    ok, and I was just now thinking that my character is an apple tech support employ and I am good with computers, so if the S.H.I.V. could be researched and developed for my character during a mission, that is when he gets in
