Suggestions / Not enough equipment to fully re-equip squad
« on: July 18, 2012, 08:19:03 am »
 "Not enough equipment to fully re-equip squad" has to be the most useless notification in the game

The game should tell us which equipment is out of stock.

I have bad memory and I do not play Xcom everyday. I always forget there are items under transferring between bases. There are also items/staffs being purchased/employed (but not yet delivered/arrive).

As a result, I  purchase/ employ excess items/staffs.

So, I suggest to add a page in the game showing the item/staff under transfer between bases. Besides, newly purchased item and staff employed but not yet deliver can also be shown in this page.

The homepages for the subject projects were removed. Are these projects dead?

Suggestions / Alien's fatal wound
« on: February 15, 2012, 08:34:33 am »

Is there anything the alien can do (something than waiting to die) when getting  fatal wound?

Will there be any first-aid treatment of the Alien's side? 8)


When all remaining equipment fit in the 1st ground page, there will not be enough ground space for storing  the newly unequipped equipment (just like the below picture).

I cannot move the 2nd ground page for placing the weapon even using the next page button of ground. This is very inconvenient.

The game behaviors of original xcom and openxcom is the same.

I think this is not a bug and so I post it in this suggestion section. I think the game should let player to put equipment to the 2nd ground page even if the page is blank.

Offtopic / X-Com Alliance beta 219
« on: December 29, 2011, 11:27:04 am »
All the information is from this thread:

The source is from from Lord Victor Albert Sebastian Delacroix, the Dark Lord of the Glyphs, Unreal Engine Archivist and Historian.

The game very beta 219 can be downloaded from here

Built 220 has only three maps (unknown at the time whether the ones from previous build will work or not), but is on a later Unreal build, 220 as opposed to 219. Consider it an alpha. Here:

I do not have time to test them. So, I share the information here.

Offtopic / Star Commands
« on: December 01, 2011, 10:19:29 am »

Here is another X-comish project for Android and IPhone.

Their homepage is here:
and here:

Build your ship, manage your crew, explore the universe. Star Command takes you across the galaxy to discover alien life, engage in epic battles and discover the mysteries of deep space. Our team here at Warballoon is working hard on the alpha for Star Command, coming (fingers crossed) this year to iOS and Android. Taking influences from X-Com, Game Dev Story and The Sims, Star Command is a game where you are the creator, captain and crew.

The battlescape is similar to X-com and there will be research tree.

This is the unused data of the original game. Please visit the following URL for detail:

We cannot research this unless we edit the save game. Do anyone know this will include in the research tree of OpenXcom?

Suggestions / Cloud Saving
« on: February 18, 2011, 12:22:06 pm »
As there will be different version of OpenXcom,  I think "cloud saving" i.e. using space from Gmail account will be very useful. I this way I can play the game at home from my PC and outside using my Symbian/Android Phone.

Translations / Traditional Chinese Translation

I will take up Chinese Translation.


Here are my suggestions:

1) can set up inventory alert level for base management or even order items such as clips when the quantity of the item below alarm level
2) can pre-assign the position of my solider in the Interceptor. I do not want my commander to be the first person coming out of the plane :)
3) aliens have the ability to pick up and equip weapon or item in battle.
4) more mission types or special events (e.g. protect Area 51, mission to save  Chief scientist, etc). these special events may be unlocked under some conditions e.g.happen in a particular day, after destroying the first alien base, etc.)

Thanks all. I hope this game can be ported to Android in the future. Thanks you.
