I have one thought that haunts me.  On Dune it has always been a very small numbers of air transport. Because of the sandstorms mostly. Maybe flying venciles should all be converted into a driving ones? i think its qite a design challenge. Sorry for english, i am using translator.

Similar idea was raised here.

It would be a pity to not include ornithopters in a Dune-themed game, but they can totally be balanced as short-range, small crew vehicles, as opposed to land vehicles which can patrol in the desert for weeks at a time.

I thot about crowling bases themself too, but, i think, it will be too complicated.

Ideally, I would like to have a mixture between land vehicles and flying craft. However, the problem is to get nice battlescape graphics for land vehicles with wheels or chain-drive. I have also not seen those in other mods.

I think a basic recolor of this one would de nicely (It's an APC-like flat vehicle, called "Mudranger")

However it's a vanilla UFO mod. On these forums, I found a post by Luke83 showing a screenshot of it in OpenXcom, but it doesn't seem he released the ported version.

Just had a look and it's going well, nice to see this going along :)

Meanwhile, I'm thinking of adding your League of Superheroes units to Redux, the heroes as civilians and the red shirts as hostile humans, if you don't mind.

Thanks for the hint. I was not aware of this. Looks quite interesting.

Sure, I am always happy when other people use my mods.
Will there be a cosplay-convention map in your mod? ;D

Well there's only 4 superheros so it would be a repetitive convention.

But... if I had more cosplay characters then I could actually design some sort of a convention building... ;)

I had completely forgotten about this - I've seen it when it was posted. And I can and will port this to OpenXcom. This is simply too nice :)

Looks like a workable ladder too?

Yeah, I've been intended to steal it for quite some time. :) Not for the FMP though, I'm planning something bigger.

It would fit nicely with one of my mission ideas for Piratez... one from a really deep drawer.

Circus of Carnage
Enemies: Clowns (acid & melee)
Civilians: lots (cosplay/furries)
Rules:
You get NEGATIVE points for civilians killed by the Clowns. You get POSITIVE points for civilians killed by yourself :)
