In XCom:EU, Floaters always struck me as a slow race. Their floating apparatus seems like they are just floating along. Can't run with no legs and it doesn't give much of an impression of flight. In the remake that's entirely different though. The Striders could well be faster, but maybe have less stamina since it's more exausting to run around than to float.

I'm thinking Floaters overseers with rifles/sniper rifles + Striders grunts with Alloy Sword and pistol/plasma caster/grenades would make an interesting if nasty combo.

Spawn the floaters outside where the long range high accuracy weapon works well, spawn the striders inside where the melee in tight quarters will be nasty. Hum..

I'd say they should have more HP (more body mass) but less armour (no, you know, metal parts), except at the front (breastplate). In addition to other changes of course.

Some new raw stuffs (I call it Xenophant) - mayhaps terror units for the Strider?
Check and convert palettes (if) before use these sprites!

Free stuff, needs no credit...

OK, I admit, these are fun. :)

I think they're too reminding on Robin's original Spitter graphics, but they could work in some total conversion mod. Maybe something like Half-Life?

Some good stuff here. Seems like your own project got stuck, but your ideas will live on - I'd like to use some of this for X-Piratez - my sights are on the Muton Female, Strider, and those fine Interceptor pictures :)

All sprite stuffs are free to use. Just check the palettes just for sure!

I forgot to attach the spritesheet of Muton sniper. Now I share all the sniper related graphics.

Created or re-edited some tiles for UFOs. Nothing fancy, some gun stuffs for the vessels, computers to expand variety and some food stores and sleeping chambers. If I will have time shall do some animated pieces.

Yes

Also, Armoured floater (corpses still need to be done and the pedia version needs palette-conversion)

Some WiP thing. I plan to add weapon sprites for the different ranks' sprites so footman will carry a pistol, officer a rifle and so on. If someone may want to use them consider they will need in-built weapons like cyberdiscs.

I created these things from my "Starwolf" alien race sketches I created long ago for an RPG. Only raw alien "template" is done, see attached image.

Hi!

I created an unarmoured Snakeman version for early-game or whatever purpose. Death animation is not redrawed yet and no pedia picture so far. The bottom of the spritesheet contains two preview images without weapon.
Feel free to use it!
