Yeah, it's possible - actually, that's how it is in the Final Mod Pack.

I'll have a look and reupload.

It might work better to have the two tanks in front of the two doors too? Or is that a deliberate choice so you can chose to lead with either tank or soldier? Just thinking for soldier safety (and faithfulness to vanilla)

Good idea, if I'm shifting troops about, I might as well have the tanks @ the doors, will wait on any updates.

Maybe it's time to make FMP a "master" mod and write mini-mods with such things as varied Ironfist deployment variants... Realistically speaking, the mod system is so easy to navigate now, that a player could then switch between various deployments by simply saving & exiting to main menu, switching the minimod, and loading :)

Oh Lord, that would be a wholly different level. :) Who knows, who knows...

Anyway, I've uploaded the new version 1.3. It adds the custom deployment (made by Dioxine), with two guys at the back.

You might want to update the paths where to put the files as well, as there isn't a data-folder any more. =)

Have updated my current game of redux with v1.3 and is going a treat, @ least I've a fighting chance vs the elite muton/ethereals missions. Saying that I had to abort a crashed commander guard battleship as those 2 aliens r bad enough but not 6 or more armored sectopods as well. Thanks for updating as quickly as u did.

This mod does not require any nightly functionalities, and a vast majority of players do not use the nightly.

No problem :)

Just something I tried and it worked fine: Why not replace the stairs with a lift, you can use the tiles from U_walls? :)

It's possible, but it's require some additional prerequisites to explain why X-Com uses anti-gravity technology. :) And that would probably mean that by that time, the Ironfist would quickly become obsolete due to Avenger.

Ok, I see your point. But why not use the ladder thingamabob from Hobbes' Dawnurban mcd file, then?   ;)

Yeah, it was Madurban. Would be possible, sure - I'll think about it.

But what I'm having in mind is a different type of plane that would be more suitable for ladders. :)
