Any ideas on how to name the craft? Airstraker? Stormranger? :)

How about SkyRaider?

SkyWarrior?

SkyMarshall? :P

in my case i rename for a order:
zone-model-number
Eur-SkyAl01 for aleation
Afri-Sky01 Normal skyranger
etc....
Asi-Rav01 for raven ....

for me is more easy to choose in the list of interceptions

normally have 10 inteceptors in dance and 2 transports
3 mainbases 1 science 2 engi and 3 both with 2 interceptors x base and 1 transport. normally all bases with 3 hangars
the rest outpost with 1 interceptor

found a few things that seems well let's say interesting ^^"

  • Machete shows 0 Dmg in the ufopedia don't think that this is intended
  • also Craft Gauss Cannon Roungs cost 4k to produse and sell for 160k that's a liitle bit too much

also added some screenshots

after installing the new version of FMP i loaded a saved game which had version 0.93 maybe some of these bug are from this

Thanks! I'll add it when I sit down to mod again.

SkyMarshall? :P

All are valid. :P

It is technically correct. The weapon does 0 damage by itself, but it adds the user's Strength to it (like the Alloy Sword, but unlike knives).

I must write a better description...

also Craft Gauss Cannon Roungs cost 4k to produse and sell for 160k that's a liitle bit too much

Oops. I think I screwed up here. I'll fix this ASAP.

also added some screenshots

The first is a common problem for me :/

The second is a missing string, I'll fix it now.

Many thanks for the info!

There is only one reason why I use MsPaint: pixel editing. It is the best for me so far to edit pixel-by-pixel. And it literally not use any memory while I use it not like PhotoShop. PhotoShop+WinAmp+Mozilla+some txt files with notes and my laptop turn into a slow little slug\snail.

Anyway, both snakeman and ethereal commanders are ready but I want some experiment with them. And I saw the blue floaters' cloak lost the golden edge? May I put it back? Or it was intentional?

Anyway. Restart OXC today with the latest FMP. Bugs I found so far (not downloaded your latest attached rules as such rules always crash my OXC - maybe they also need the latest nightly?):
Right at the beginning pedia contains and show alloy vest and stormtrooper armour entries. Both are late tech (at least need alien alloys be researched I think)... Machete does 0 damage?! And not available to buy (it is also a civilian weapon?).

BUT!

Dogies! This was the best idea ever! Love them! My only heart ache is that I can not dub them like Wulfie and Sharptooth :)

And Altoids. I adapted them from Xeno General what I attached an encyclopaedia (here: https://www.mediafire.com/download/lvn7q8i9iec3bj6/Encyclopedia.exe ). XG was strongly influenced by X-com. If you read the paedia you shall understand why they resembling so much to sectoids (took me 8 days to make that encyclopaedia).

On week two I was raided by Sectoids. Sectoid commander looks strange at first but as I remember the description from XenoOps it is more than logical to use that sprite for them. Was I good idea IMO.

Hey Duke, what a nice work that Xeno General Encyclopaedia is!!! A crossover between X-Com and one of the "childs" of Panzer General (Two of my favourite ever games!!!) Where can I learn more about this mod or to be able to download it if possible?

Thanks for sharing your hard work!  8)

SkyMarshall sound like the most logical progression in keeping with the Sky + law enforcement scheme.

Well, some people mind the overflow. Would you rather have "Alloy SkyRngr" or something?

Not so long ago I made a mod for the Open General platform (Turn based engine of the Panzer General 2 but wastly extended and expanded and as fully moddable as Open X-com) what is more or less based upon X-com. It interprets my version of the aliens history as how they crossed through the space and subjugated many races to twist them to those abominations what appeared on Earth finally.

The mod's installer's link and some description could be found here:
https://panzercentral.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=132&t=50241

But before you do anything with the downloaded exe (what is the installer) go here for the basic Open General and a very good description how to use, set up or mod it:
https://luis-guzman.com/

Hope you will like the mod and it's story!

Alien data slate is infininte source of alien tech now. Last time I could research it only once but now I can research it again and again. I sold it after three "free techs" as it may ruin the whole game :S

Read the mod instructions/readme/previous posts, dude. You're supposed to turn the "SPEND RESEARCHED ITEMS" option to "ON".

It set as on. It was such from the beginning I started play OXC.
No problem. I sold it. And I will do so if found any more.

And here, my friend, our opinions differ. :) In my world, supported by evidence (starting stats), these guys are hardly trained soldiers, they're field agents that take up weapons. Few of them seem to have had significant military training, no? :)
Stats don't support the theory about lack of training.

Code: [Select]
- type: MALE_CIVILIAN
    race: STR_CIVILIAN
    stats:
      tu: 35
      stamina: 65
      health: 30
      bravery: 80
      reactions: 30
      firing: 30
      throwing: 50
      strength: 20
      psiStrength: 5
      psiSkill: 0
      melee: 50

Code: [Select]
- type: XCOM
    minStats:
      tu: 50
      stamina: 40
      health: 25
      bravery: 10
      reactions: 30
      firing: 40
      throwing: 50
      strength: 20
      psiStrength: 0
      psiSkill: 0
      melee: 20
    maxStats:
      tu: 60
      stamina: 70
      health: 40
      bravery: 60
      reactions: 60
      firing: 70
      throwing: 80
      strength: 40
      psiStrength: 100
      psiSkill: 16
      melee: 40

Even min stat soldiers have higher tu and firing accuracy than civilians.
