UFO: Afterlight wiki

Game ID: ReticulanInfoWar This event happens immediately after human conquer the Al faction reticulans.jpgReticulans main base or Al faction expedition.jpgExpedition main base.

This event happens only once, and will allow research of Icon tech reticulan.pngReticulan Technologies (if didn't gain it through alliance) and Icon tech reticulan.pngAdvanced Reticulan Technology.

This is the only way to gain Advanced Reticulan Technology. Thus, in order to win the game, a reticulan main base must be raided.


This event reports that raiding the main base resulted in acquisition of scientific data, enabling new researches, possibly filling in gaps of knowledge mentioned in Al icon event.pngReticulan Treason.

Al icon pc willhelm schrooten.jpg On searching the Reticulan base our soldiers found some computers and brought them here. Will they be useful to us?
Al icon pc fernando ramirez.jpg They certainly will. They contain a lot of data about Reticulan technologies.
Al icon pc jacqueline wells.jpg So we can now start producing all those Reticulan weapons?
Al icon pc fernando ramirez.jpg Please don't be impatient. First, we must analyze the content of the database, and then start our application research.


There was some buggy situation where Adv Ret Tech can be gained outside of raiding main base-icon area. One example is right after breaking treaty with Rebels, attacking them, and ally with Expedition. The research was inserted silently into possible research pool without any sign. Just need to check the revelant lab research. Later on raiding main base still lead to Event. This bug can happen with v1.7
