Alien troop carrier
« on: November 05, 2013, 09:53:48 pm »
So the suggestion is a new UFO, plain on the inside, not strong in battle and kinda big. It needs to be big, since it carries a (metric) ****ton of alien soldiers around...
More than a battleship, thought about 35-45.
The idea behind that is to have even lategame a really hard tactical battle that needs all your skills, even with good equipment.
Needs to be lategame though, since before lasers you´d run out of ammo and before researching plasma you´d have no chance if it accidentally contains mutons... ^^
Could be used on alien terror missions well, since there you´d at least have a lot of possibilities to take cover.

You could try modding it in. UFOs/Deployments are fairly easy to make in a ruleset.

I think the terror mission route sounds good and would be consistent with the rest of the game; the same way you've got small and large scouts, this could be a jumbo-sized terror ship.

This should be made. Special Message Windows must pop up when click on the site:

TROOP CARRIER LANDING SITE

TROOP CARRIER SHIP CRASH SITE

So you know what you are getting into = probably getting whole XCOM squads massacred when newbie and low-tech.

Should have lots of Chryssalids!!
