Hello there :)

I noticed that you've been working hard on the ADVENT unit pages and I may be able to give you a hand with the still missing info (Force Levels & Abilities) since I'm on the process of compiling that info into more tables. However, the infoboxes might need some changes. Here are a few details that you might want to include/consider:

  • Force Level can be of 2 kinds, Leader and Follower. New unit types usually appear first as Leaders, and then as Followers. Some units only appear as Leaders while others can only appear as followers.
  • In the case of the units with different versions (Mk1, etc.) it might be better to have infoboxes for all of them since the range of Force Level and Stats can vary a lot
  • The more advanced versions usually have additional skills: as an example Sentinel Mk3 has the Tactical Sense perk (in addition to Ready For Anything and Fire Control 25, which Mk1 and Mk2 already possess)

Yeah, I wasn't sure how to handle all of the things since alien stats vary by both difficultly level and rank, which make for confusing tables. I based the unit box on the LW1 template which showed ranges for things, but I'm not sold on current state yet. (Also, it has been a long time since I've contributed to a wiki, so my template-foo has deteriorated.) But yeah, I'm basing most of the unit box/stats stuff on the stats table that got uploaded and I've been added abilities as I've seen them in my game or xwynns's videos. If you get more tables uploaded, I would have no problem updating the template for leader/follower FLs and maybe trying to make an actual template for the unit perk tables, which would probably also require making templates for the alien-specific perks. TLDR; I've been thinking about some of those things, but figured I'd WP:BB and just start digging in instead of flapping about indecisively. Edit: Mk3 Sentries get Tacsense? Oh goddamnit.
