1. (Stop on spotting aliens) This one would be probably quite easy to implement the way you described it.
However, there is something a bit more complex similar to this that may still be worth implementing: keep track of soldier destinations and make it possible to just continue the movement, preferably even across turns.

    What would the UI look like?
    • Aimed
    • Snap
    • Snap x 2
    • Auto
    • Auto x 2

    or disallowing double snapshots:

    • Aimed
    • Snap
    • Auto
    • Dual auto

    or something completely different.

I've managed to compile and do some modifications, overriding the built-in tracks 1:1 is possible in this branch, but not depending on terrain type:

Great, thanks SupSuper!

It's true that the version number does not represent much to those who follow the project closely and upgrade often.
To everyone else however, a nice round version number means that the project is in a state not just worth trying but worth using.
He can start a game without worrying about savegame compatibility breaking tomorrow and the fix to yesterdays bug arriving the day after tomorrow.

Programming / v1.0

"When will v1.0 be released?" - I'm sure I'm not the only one interested.
Could SupSuper or someone else sum up what is between now and the much expected release?
What features do you want to complete, how many bugs need to be fixed?

I intend to make a patch to support the feature in the subject of this topic and a little more: choosing music depending on mission type + terrain type
An example of the ruleset I'm aiming at:
Code: [Select]
  overrides: CRASHSITE
    0: POLAR
    1: MOUNT
  overrides: GMGEO1
  extends: GMGEO

This would
1. define a specific music file for arctic and mountain missions.
2. override one of the geoscape tracks
3. add an additional geoscape tracks

I may decide to simplify it further. I would not want to make it any more complex as this will be my first shot at contributing code to OpenXcom.

From the title I thought this would be about injured units leaving trails of blood.  :)

Changing the tempo may sound like a good idea, however the SDL library which is used by OpenXcom does not let you mix the music to this extent.

Do you guys have ideas what rules could be defined, what would be the parameters for specifying music tracks?
The initial suggestion was battlescape, based on terrain type.
Mission type could be an additional parameter or the approximate number of live enemies.
On the geoscape, I could imagine starting a specific track if there are UFOs on the radar or having a different music in the early stage of the game.

Although, realistically, I doubt anyone would use all these features if they were available.

I have yet to try the weapon self-destruction option which seems to me to be a very good balancing factor (more difficult to research all alien artifacts and also less loot money that you could hire scientists for.)

Maybe quicksave + quickload buttons on the options screen? (I mean both geoscape and battlescape options.)
The name would be generated from the actual time on quicksave and quickload would load the most recent savefile (regardless of name).
