When everything goes wrong …
… you better hope you saved your game.
In other words: panicking and berserking soldiers are implemented, but to compensate for that battlescape savegames -finally- have been implemented too.
Since our savegames are not just binary memory dumps like in the old times, they are readable yaml text files, you’ll have the whole battlescape terrain – tile by tile – nicely described for you to edit and play with.
So you can also clone your own aliens, using copy-paste 😉
While it may have been quiet here on the website this summer, in the background I have been coding on an interesting battlescape feature.
Although not planned at first, so it may come a bit as a surprise, but we’ve put guns in the alien’s hands and gave them brains. In other words : the basic AI is implemented. The times where we lived peacefully together with sectoids are now definitely over. The war has begun.
