[POLL] Dead X-Com fan projects you regret most

Hello,

You have max 2 votes, use them wisely ;)

UFO2000 isn't officially dead, but it's development is almost non existent, so i've also added it here.

If you would like to see other projects in this poll, suggest them.

I was wondering if someone will still remember one of old projects, like EDF ;)

talking about dead projects, a link to UFO: Cydonia's Fall is still on openxcom.org's main page, although it's a dead link, it might be interesting to keep dead projects in that list, but with a Strikethrough effect ? :)

Yes, I remember EDF project. EDF stands for Earth Defense Force. Right?

Yes, I agree and please do the same for UFO 2012 project.

Besides, I suggest to add a link for the Homepage of Xcom: Enemy Unknown.

Yeah, EDF is Earth Defense Force - it was probably one of first remake projects.

Damn I still remember EDF, nothing to show but they had some really cool ideas. I'll have to dig up that website again for inspiration. :)

Personally my most regretted projects are Project Xenocide, because it was really cool and big and I was in it :P and UFO: The Two Sides, it was just so close...

UFO: Cydonia's Fall
If I add every dead project the Links are gonna become bigger than the page. :P I was considering having a dedicated Links page to keep everything nice and descriptive, but having Links on the frontpage gives them a lot more exposure and pageviews. Maybe shove everything in Links but still keep highlighted active projects in the frontpage? Hmm decisions decisions...

I just noticed I didn't vote yet :p
Well, my vote goes to Cydonia's Fall... The concept art, 3D models and music were very promising. I applied as a programmer to work for that project, but never got a reply. That's where I began at openxcom.

Can we just get OpenXcom working without bugs first?!   I'm really having withdrawal pangs. :o

TTS was the only remake I ever tested/played.  So obviously that's the one I miss most.
However they weren't going for a Cydonia ending (last I was on their forums anyways), so this project looks even better =)
