New Aliens

How about a new alien or more, as a mod project? Even TFTD might supply a few new aliens to fight.

What do you say?

I like this idea

I remember people already submitted some new aliens, based on existing one but using different color schemes. This should be useful.

Here for example, very nice job

*ekhm* What about this? :)

Yeahm it's possible, it's just much work. Well, not so much if you use resources for TFTD aliens... :D

I saw something like this in Civilian ressources. I will see if I include this in FMP project.

I quite like the idea. Adding new aliens could mix up the fairly stale endgame quite a bit. Even if we're just doing pallet swaps and saying that the aliens are wearing new armors which give them new resistances, it could at least encourage players to use something other than heavy plasma all the time.

How about for a new enemy, human soldiers, from unknown politics and factions?

Would they have human weapons, a mix, or alien weapons?

More new aliens/enemies will come. Be patient.

I saw an ad for Godzilla last night. I might recolor a Reaper, make him shoot plasma that explodes, and when you kill him, he will spawn a new, differently colored Reaper, resistant to different weapons. A few times. The last one will have the fire-trail specab.

Unique terror mission, only in Tokyo.

Activates on the Worldwide Godzilla Day only. I'm sure something like this exists.

Devious. Every year, the Reaper-zilla has one more "form". 1999, one form. 2000, two forms. Etc. Each harder than the last. If you fail, the capitol is wiped from the earth and the Reaper-zilla attacks the next nearest capitol in 1 month.

VoilĂ , the game now has a length soft-cap.
