Like an armor against Chrysalids ?

Don't be silly, the Jump Armour is the armour against Chrysalids. :)

Seriously though, I'll make some other branch of armours. Something with less protection but stat bonuses.

But adding stat bonuses is not possible, is it ?

Sure it is! Armour can modify any stat, from TUs to Psi Strength.

The Piratez mod uses this system heavily. You should try it :)

I made some more 'conservative' colored sprites for a jump armor based on the vanilla personal and flying armors.

Maybe someone is interested.
Question : has the Jump.png to be split in 288 elements to make it work ?

You can just load the sprite table in the 'extraSprites' section of your ruleset:

Code: [Select]
  - type: XCOM_5.PCK
    width: 1024
    height: 360
    subX: 32
    subY: 40
    files:
      0: Resources/.../JumpArmor/jump.png

Then it is automatically divided into sub-pictures.

If you are interested in this mod, I would suggest using Clownagent's Grav Armour mod instead. It includes my Jump Armour, but also a Grav Module which is just a flying backpack and is available before the Alien Alloys are researched. It also uses IMHO better sprites, more consistent with the Personal Armour design, but if you want the green version, use the Jump Armour graphics.

Yea, I saw it does that like the old Jump armor design. So...

Without funky hair colors, use my version!  :P


With all due credits to Clownagent, ofc.

Ah thanks for the hint. I fixed the hair color also in the GravArmors mod.
