Some of you may recognize my name as the editor for the XCOM andXCOM2: TFTD FAQ's, among others.
If you don't care about all these verbiage (it's mainly forpeople who want to redistribute the guide) you can jump right tothe end of this section and read some of the FAQs.

0.8.2 Land Questions
Q: How do I destroy a hero gate?A: There are two types of hero gates. There's a free-standingone, and a "wall" one. For the free-standing one, claim all theland touching it (all eight tiles). If the tile's under water,build bridge there. For the wall one, claim all three tiles infront of it MAY disable it.
Q: One of those tiles around the gate is solid rock!A: Then you can't destroy that gate. Put an alarm trap there towarn you of any incursions.
Q: I dug somewhere I didn't want to. Can I put the rock back?A: Nope. Put a door or barricade there instead.
Q: Should I build a wooden bridge temporarily over lava and letit burn, or build a stone bridge?A: The best way is to build wooden bridge, then sell it before itcompletely burns up. If you don't have time to micromanage, thenbuild stone bridge, and sell it later.
0.8.3 Beast and Hero Questions
Q: How do I attract a specific type of beast through the portal?A: You can only provide the specific incentives (different beastsare attracted by different things) and hope the right beasts showup through the portal. See the specific creature's description.If your "portal limit" is reached and you want a different type,drop the creature you don't want into the portal to "fire" it.
Q: I don't have a portal! How do I get more units?A: You have three possibilities: build a prison and turn yourprisoners into skeletons; build graveyard and turn the deadbodies into vampires; build torture chamber (with prison) andconvert your prisoners to your cause (be ready with heal spellsand/or chickens). On some levels, you may be able to claim "free"creatures roaming the landscape by digging into its area, thusfreeing them, or free imprisoned creatures by claiming theirprison. Converted/created creatures do not count against theportal limit (of course).
Q: My creatures don't like their company!A: If you converted "hero" creatures, you will need to buildseparate facilities for them apart from the regular facilitiesfor the "evil" creatures. That includes training room as well aslair and hatchery. In addition to that, some "evil" creaturesdon't like each other either. See creature references or yourmanual for details.
Q: How do I move one creature's "bed" to another lair?A: Pick up that creature and drop it into another lair. Ifthere's room in that lair that creature will resettle once itgets over the "dazed" period.
Q: What is this about "Elite Creatures"?A: Version 1.61 introduced elite creatures, a "special" captain-type creature that has better stats than their regular brethren.For more information on these, please seehttp://www.geocities.com/theEvilOnesDK2page/
