Sounds good, I support this. Shields are a great addition.
But we'd need someone to write the code. :-\

Great as usual, unfortunately I only have very little time to play atm...

I've thought about the stone as ultimate weapon for quite some time as well, but I don't think it's easy to implement. As a grenade? Just imagine forgetting to prime your stone before throwing it! ::)
The ideal stone would be both a melee weapon and a re- usable un- primeable armor piercing grenade, the pinnacle of post-apocalyptic technology.
Easiest way to implement it would probably be as ammo for a slingshot.

Never seen that either.
What happened to the civilian?

I always wanted to add Elvis to the Cydonia mission, having him run around in the alien base like a civilian (but ignored by the aliens) ::)

Good idea!

I like playing with fire as well. ::)

But are the green-blue shoes intended or just a recoloring glitch?
I would also remove the green patches from the leg sprites, looks kind of weird.

Might actually prove useful when creating an alien race with camouflage abilities.

Would enabling additional ranks involve a lot of work? 
I guess so... :-[

The problem with the current set of ranks is that the aliens with heavy weapons i.e. engineers are almost exclusively restricted to the inside of UFOs where they are pretty useless. The Battleship is a good example. Th guys with Blaster Launcher stay on the top floor of the UFO until most of their comrades are killed, then they panic and drop their weapons or blow themselves up. I've been playing OXC quite a lot and I can't remember when I last lost a soldier due to Blaster Launcher attack, but it was a long long time ago.

So having a second soldier type as heavy support / sniper who can be positioned on elevated positions outside would make a lot more sense. An easy way would be to convert engineers to this by rearranging their spawning points and increasing their numbers but it in terms of game logic seems a bit weird that engineers would fill this role.

How's this?

But seriously - it just doesn't work with current code, unless the alien is disarmed. :(

On the other hand, they'd probably buy the rights on the original UFO and TFTD and close down all of OXC as revenge... :'(

I tried to create a candy bar a while ago but the aliens didn't like it.
Maybe I used the wrong flavor  :-\

40k mod would be awesome but be prepared to get sued for copyright infringement like you have never been before! ::)

My original Idea was to use candy as bait, lay out a track of sweets and wait behind a corner armed with a baseball bat until an alien comes by picking it all up. ;D

Work In Progress / Re: Alternative explosion sprite
« on: June 18, 2014, 12:16:36 am »
Ok, the hit sprites work now, and weird explosions are also fixed if you space apart the file numbers by 8.
Still you can only replace the original explosion sprite, not create different ones for different weapons.

So my request to all you coding wizards out there - could we pleease have custom explosion sprites? :-[
I mean, the option to define something like:

Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_GRENADE_1
    explosionAnimation: 2
  - type: STR_GRENADE_2
    explosionAnimation: 10
 - type: X1.PCK   
    width: 512
    height: 128
    subX: 128
    subY: 64

      10: Resources/Explosions/Explosion2.png

But aliens only pick up items if they have no weapons and if no one sees them, right? :(

I wanted to create an alien bait which could be built from alien entertainment, but it's of little use as long as it only works on disarmed aliens.
