Streaming OpenXCom
« on: August 19, 2014, 07:54:50 am »
I'm Raihn from Street Level Gaming, we've done a run with the original XCOM awhile back where we  play through with 'field expedient multiplier."  we divide up soldiers between red team and blue team.  We then take turns moving our team around.  We also stream with a custom overlay to keep the viewers updated as to the status of the soldiers, mission type, mission location, etc.  I was curious if there was a way that I could get Open XCom to change the color of soldiers?  We use a lot of red and blue team, so it would be great to be able to color our soldiers accordingly.

I could do some graphics work if that is a hang up, I wouldn't mind attempting some mods.  I graphics full time atm, so I think I could do just fine on that end with a little direction.  Essentially I suppose I'm asking if OpenXcom would be capable of introducing a little bit of soldier customization. 

We are about to start up another run and we would like to really highlight OpenXcom and how awesome it is, especially compared to past attempts to keep the game playable.

Thanks for the thoughts.

There is a mod that allows you to make different color armor for your troops.  I believe you have to research it then manufacture.

Check the Armor mods on the Mod Site here to see if you can find something that fits.
