The boys have managed to improve our basic Interceptors and Skyrangers using alien alloys making them stronger and lighter.

Good addition, especially the Skyranger because it is used for a long time.
Maybe someone could make new graphics for these new craft, maybe alter the colors so the blue alien alloys show up.

And you should add a little bit more description to your mod (Requirements, Manufacturing and so on) for people who cant read .rul-files.

best regards

Very nice idea, I like it ;D

Warning 1 : you should add a "requires" section for both to avoid to appear in Ufopaedia until research as been completed
=> strange is that only Alloy SkyRanger was appearing (?!)
I did not find the cause, and maybe it will not work after research has been done (to be tested)

Code: [Select]
ufopaedia:
  - id: STR_ALLOY_SKYRANGER
    type_id: 1
    section: STR_XCOM_CRAFT_ARMAMENT
    image_id: UP004.SPK
    rect_stats:
      x: 160
      y: 5
      width: 140
      height: 60
    rect_text:
      x: 5
      y: 40
      width: 140
      height: 100
    text: STR_ALLOY_SKYRANGER_UFOPEDIA
    requires:
      - STR_ALLOY_SKYRANGER
  - id: STR_ALLOY_INTERCEPTOR
    type_id: 1
    section: STR_XCOM_CRAFT_ARMAMENT
    requires:
      - STR_ALIEN_ALLOYS
    image_id: UP002.SPK
    rect_stats:
      x: 5
      y: 110
      width: 140
      height: 60
    rect_text:
      x: 5
      y: 40
      width: 210
      height: 60
    text: STR_ALLOY_INTERCEPTOR_UFOPEDIA
    requires:
      - STR_ALLOY_INTERCEPTOR

Warning 2 : beware to update extrastrings type to new standards en-US/en-GB (see below extrastrings)

Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: en-US

Warning 3 : there are two small errors in string (INTERCEEPTOR => INTERCEPTOR, and lack of a dot "." at end of line)

Idea : perhaps add a costrent ?
