X-COM: UFO Defense (PC)
This game is titled X-COM: UFO Defense in North America and UFO: Enemy Unknown in Europe.
Press [Ctrl] + C or [Ctrl] + G while in the battlescape screen to complete the current level with the results of the previous level.
Start a new game and build a base. Save it, and exit
the game. Open the game folder and you should see folders named
"GAME_1" to "GAME_10". These are the saved
game folders. Enter the saved game folder that corresponds to
the game that you saved. The order of the saves is the same as
in the game ("GAME_1" is at top, etc.) After you open
the folder with your save, make a back up of the "LIGLOB.DAT"
file. Then, open the original "LIGLOB.DAT" file with
a text editor. You will see some encrypted data. Press [Enter]
so that text jumps to line two and line one is clean. Then, enter
FF FF 7f in the line one over the encrypted data and save
the file. Then, start the game, load your saved game, and enter
your base. You should now have $1,713,399,398.
When you finish building a new ship, load it with the
weapons (Plasma Beam for both weapons is recommended). When it
is fully charged and ready for flight, transfer it to another
base. When it gets to the base, immediately send it out on patrol.
Click the ship and you will see that its fuel is 0%. That means
it will not run out of fuel. Make sure that when you send the
ship out on patrol, send it to the opposite side of the planet
or a long way from your base. This allows you to catch the ship
after it attacks the enemy before it can return to base. This
is best done with the FireStorm craft. They are cheap and quick
to build. The firepower is just as good as the Avenger, which
cost lots more and takes longer to build.
Select the item to be manufactured, but assign no engineers
and leave the number to produce at zero. Then, assign as many
engineers as desired but only manufacture one item. Use tanks
with this trick to easily make money.
Always do terror sites during the day
When you target a terror site or crashed UFO with a
ship, it does not disappear, giving you to get to it. If a terror
site is in the darkness, send Interceptors one after the other
to it. Hopefully, enough time will have passed to get the terror
or crash site in the daylight.

A simple way to avoid night time terror missions is knowing that
as long as the terror site is targeted, and whatever has it targeted
is moving towards it when the hour changes, it will stay there
forever. For example, if you need to buy yourself a few hours
before it is light out at the site, put your Skyranger on patrol.
A few minutes before the hour ends, target the terror site again.
Then as soon as the hour changes go back on patrol.
