Choosing promotions?
« on: November 15, 2016, 06:11:31 am »
Seems crazy that you don't get to choose who to promote.  Would it be hard to introduce a system where you can select who to promote?

No, it's not hard.

Cause' right now the only option I have is to kill all the unworthy officers.  I suppose I could just fire them but its more fun to 'get the most out of them'...

Killing is quite harsh ... why not open up the savegame in an editor and demote them manually?

More fun seeing who survives 'friendly fire'...

Give them a stunrod and a pistol instead. Make them earn the right to exist.

You can now demote soldiers in OXCE+.

Press and hold left-CTRL... "SACK" button will temporarily change to "DEMOTE" button... each click decreases rank by 1.



Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: en-US
    strings:
      STR_DEMOTE: "DEMOTE"

Wow, this is a neat function.

Well, I don't expect to use it, ever, but I admit, it's pretty cool.

I am not a vanilla developer, I can't put anything into the nightlies, it's only in my own fork.

Download here: http://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,4187.0.html

Fellow dude, that's a VERY AWESOME drawing!
Author does God's work!

Gotta love some of the details, like the faux-FPS perspective (looks like concepts from X-COM The FPS),  the fantastic weapons, the scarily alien and powerful build of the Chrysalid and the Chrysalid clawing out of that zombie.
