Resources / JustTheDude (soon) Cabal of Sprites.
« on: April 24, 2020, 09:11:19 pm »
I thought that contributing something for X-Com mods that I like to play might be good idea. While it was half fun and half pain, now I can appreciate the effort that went into spriting (those damned walking animations) countless items and units. The more enemy, armor and weapons variety, the better in my opinion, so feel free to use whatever I post here.

Its my first baby attempt into spriting, done mostly trough trail and error with the guidance of openxcommods guides with "stone age" methods of infranview and occasionaly GIMP. I hope they don't look too "cartoonish" to be of any use.

Outside of being a fan of XCOM, I also like Command&Conquer and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, so expect most, if not everything I will do to be directly inspired, or maybe closely resembling stuff found in those games.

First sprite was inspired by C&C 3 Tiberium Wars "Militiant Squad". As soon as I figure out how to extract UFOpaedia/Equipment pictures, I will start working on it. PckView can't extract those despite what guide openxcommods says apparently.

More sprites... *Soon*

Special thanks to creators of X-Piratez and X-COM Files for hooking me up on X-COM mods.

XPiratez / Disruptive transmission mission

How to beat this mission? Is it worth to try made it as fast as possible? So I start second playthrough after the first one was failure for some reasons with one was that mission. I sended my two best gals in interceptor only to find out them in some crappy cocoon without proper weapon. One move in any direction resulted death by some robots who I couldn't see or even shoot.
I learned over my mistakes in second playthrough and I rushed research so I achieved codex before having more than starting airbus and before first enemy base assault. Does this mission active but not resolved will significantly lower my infamy and research speed?

I very like the idea of space missions, but that was so unfair.

By the way. I love this mode so much! I don't even think about playing something else. Lore, graphics and game mechanics are just wonderfull.
