    OK, thanks to @Kammerer for pointing the listing out, my copy has arrived.
    First thing to notice, is the back cover has the equip image showing the Multi-Tracker and Dimension Destabiliser Gun... Both cut items...

    @makus Did you get the whole strategy guide from @Normanscope ? If not i will have a browse of my copy and post anything of interest here

    Aha! It appears that the elerium pods found throughout Beta game maps were meant to be in vanilla maps too so they could be sold like psyclones...

    OK, i'll keep posting anything of interest here myself.

    Such as this... The guide talks of building security... Something in Beta but not present in vanilla without @jordos A-patcher enabling them again.

    It appears that all buildings are meant to have security personal equipped according to the current tech-level of the organisation... They must have been cut out REALLY late in development to be in the guide but not in vanilla...

    WP_20171206_003 (Custom).jpg

    Also, Cult of Sirius are keen on Psi-Attacks... They are also described as good with ALL types of conventional weaponry, unlike their vanilla explosive obsession and beta incendiary obsession behaviour...
