i COULD commit it, but it's not finished, and as soon as i DO, people will start modding it, and i want to stave that off as long as possible, at least until the battlescape is sorted out.

Good! Fear us! ;D

I fully understand and support your decision... don't succumb to pressure from our side! ;-)

Well, it's your gig... but if you commit it, people might also help you finish it :-) Otherwise, do do a news post when it's ready for testing.

There will be no more "rare Triscene" or "rare Xarquid"

OpenTFTD will make vanilla tftd feels as easy as ufo:eu.

Isn't it a nightmare?

Sometimes (at weekends mostly) I'm casting test runs in the twitch.
Without voice commenting tho.

That's awesome, I'd love to see someone streaming TFTD!
Gave you a follow on Twitch. :)

Total mayhem. I must say AI is far better than original, @Warboy ;)

I'd say it looks fairly playable, as far as Battlescape goes.

Oh my god, how can one even possibly defend against that without making sure all your troops are immune to MC?

Well, high ranking Tasoths = M.C. attacks. Keep a lightning rod or three on the team (soldier with Low M.C. strength who has been targeted on previous missions by M.C. attacks), and unarmed so they can't hurt themselves or others. Let them soak up the M.C. activity.
We have good armor here, so use scout and snipe tactics. The Tasoths will respond well to sonic weapons, or sonic disruptors (alien grenades). Apply liberally. Tricenes should also be vulnerable to explosives so that may help there too. Other than that, if you don't have a squad that can handle this level of a terror mission, just touch and go. Land, wait one turn (let the enemy burn his TUs), pop the door open, shoot anything in sight (ok, leave the civs alone, just shoot the extra-terrestrials (extra-aquestrials??)) and then abort. You will lose points, but far less than you would have if you ignored the terror mission.

I believe that the proper term for the aliens that originated on Earth itself is Ultra-Terrestrials.

Pretty sure you've got the right approach. It needs to be at least partially playable before it's worth doing any TFTD-related nightlies.
