I like the backgrounds, but I think the one for the Battlescape options makes it a bit hard to read the text.

Yes, that's the problem with distracting backgrounds... ;D

Anyway, a more serious issue, once you are inside the Raiders ship, there appears to be no way out. ???
Check the savegame.
It always says you don't have enough TUs when you try to get out even if you are next to the door with plenty left.

Crap, i've noticed that issue with the Raider ship before, but totally forgot to fix it. I have no idea what's wrong, must be these non-standard stairs... I'll try to find a workaround.

About the background - I'll try to make it more uniform, removing rogue pixels... if it fails, I'll find another one - which would be a shame since I like the scene pretty much... kneeling behind cover and looking nervous :)

The Battlescape background works differently from other screens.



You should be using the first 1-15 pixels of the palette for the background instead. They're darker and provide better contrast with the UI.

I think the Bonaventura has a leak somewhere, see attached savegame.

Probably some roof tile obscured by the back wall is missing... I'll look into it.

By the way - what do you think about a roof opening in the Bonaventura, maybe even with stairs?
Would give the upper deck some function as the roof would be a good sniper position.

Featured in Leviathan, can't give the player everything at once :)

So you thought laser weapons are so awesome they make firearms obsolete? The Church is there to prove you wrong :)
With just 8 girls and limited amounts of explosives/melee weapons, and lasgun-based outfit, your chances are pretty crappy there :) At least you took a few Smoke Grenades... I'd advise to keep killing Chryssalids until the Church's morale breaks :)

So the game has a religion too, and it involved Chryssalids. I just lost my appetite for years...
