Work In Progress / Re: can chrysalid drawing routine 7 hold weapons?
« on: August 20, 2018, 12:55:58 pm »
Wasnt there a years-old mod-resource by Bombbloke (for the original game) that included Civilians, Chrysallids etc that could carry weapons? Not sure anymore....

I am still considering doing a low-work cheap-ass play-as-aliens mod. I have working sectoid soldiers (that can kneel, which seems to be essential for them being considered soldiers by the EXE), and my thoughts were

-They will have NO weapons, only built in abilities
-will not be able to use any terran/alien weapons
-will start with one sectoid only
-have to stun/capture specific civilians as "resources" for more sectoids/abilities
-will have a base with the standard alien base look
-will not be friends with the aliens OR the the humans
-will not have a backpack, only their bare hands

Unit ideas for the sectoids were Carrier sectoid (to carry heavy things/units), psi-sectoid, stun-sectoid, electronic-disabling sectoid (against tanks and other mechanical stuff), stealth sectoids, scouting sectoids.

I also had the idea to make "keys" basically weapons with a specific damagetype than can open doors that are vulnerable ONLY to that damagetype

BUT: I am scared of the work involved  ::)

Maybe someone wants to pick up my idea?  ;D

I like the new look of the inventory pictures! Did you also change the ingame graphics?

Small update of "flagology" knowledge base:

Soldiertransformations also randomize the flag/nationality entry.  :)

solariusscorch: Just a tiny change to the alloy skyranger... I moved the front wings (and wheels) one tile forward, it gives you much more protection that way when opening the door without blocking the view. And i fixed one tile which was a Wall when it should be an object (bug comes from original XCOM).

To clarify: The setting AGGRESSIVE RETALIATION is NOT turned on by default, that's right. I did it though and that's why I strongly suggest to make it OFF by default, because the game can get pretty much unbeatable that way.  :)

Have to test the flamers, i have to admit i never used them... Must be bad experiences in the default game where incendiaries are pretty useless...

That Traitor guard still haunts me... That mission was like a nightmare, i downed everything left and right, even Sentinels and there he was, a single lone, tiny Chaos guard, killing my entire squad with his puny lasgun...  :D and later his twin showed up in another mission... ::)

Oh, one thing: The defense corridor is rather expensive. In my game the 4 turrets could not kill a single raptor, 1.5 million credits for a (speed-bump) delay of 2 turns is a bit excessive.... Could also be RNG related of course, but maybe you could raise their rate-of-fire to make them more viable, haven't checked their stats, though...

It's benn rather long since i made this changes...
What I corrected mostly were

-floor holes in the grunge maps
-missing tiles
-blocking objects

the first  change you mentioned was actually one of the first i ever made  :D that railing was clearly in the wrong position...

Good work and keep them updates coming, player701!

The X-Com Files / Flags
« on: August 06, 2018, 01:14:37 pm »
I tested the flag stuff a bit and realized that only RANDOMSOLDIERS (the one at the start of a game) get completely random flags, the ones that are generated in-game by hiring get flags according to the nationality RNG number e.g 00 is american and uses american names etc.

However, to make this work properly you have to connect the flag to the(alphabetically ordered) soldier-name -files properly which isn't the case in X-Files. 

Anyway, to make it work properly, here the corrected entries to show what i mean. As there is no generic ARABIC flag, i used egypt as an example etc. Polynesia seems to be missing as wel, but you get the picture...

hope this is understandable, it's monday, you know  ;D

tldr: Flag 00 is connected to Soldiername-file 00, flag 01 to soldiername file 01 etc. the soldiername files seem to be aplphabetically ordered. RANDOMSOLDIERS are random, though.

There is a "Master of <0>" Commendation in the Ufopedia. It showed up properly in the debrief (don't rememeber the full title, though), but  not in the pedia. It's the one you get for killing people with different wapons.

OpenXcom Extended / Re: [DONE] [Feedback] No line of fire indicator
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:43:35 pm »
I like that feature! And high-lighting the first obstacle is enough, usually one can destroy only one wall anyway when firing, so it is no problem at all.

Just a proposal after watching the end of Meridians (and another) Youtube LP again: Maybe you should use the allien base from XOPS as a final base, it looks inredible and would be a change from the default Ubase graphics. Not sure if that already has been changed, if so disregard my post.
