Thank you very much !

But one little question please !
I'm surprised that autopsies of "spitter" and "skeletoid" have the same sentence !  :-[
Normal ?

@FeruEnzeru

First of all, the current version has bugs that result in a crash (missing research stuff and so on), so play the campaign at your own risk!
I can't release a hotfix at this point and the next version will take some time before it'll be ready.

Quote
Yeah, Hobbes' Area 51 Mod has soldier themed civilians attacking/shooting units you know.
The police robosphere now DO attack aliens (at least it seems so).
Quote
2: More weapons and stuff from Human Factions.
I don't plan to make many more weapons over the current ones. Just and handful and that will be it.
Quote
4: All of the stuff including aliens from Apocalypse (Aliens like Brainsucker, Hyperworm, Micronoid Aggregate, Queenspawn, Overspawn, etc) (Meaning more than 1-2 years
About the aliens I'd say I'm about halfway done.
Quote
6: Entropy Launcher weapon for the aliens (Adds like a shot that makes more wounds for a soldier to have)
I did some testing and controlling the wounding is tricky. I still don't know about a kind of weapon like that.
Quote
7: Personal Energy Shields (perfect for blocking incoming hits/shots)
I plan to have them, if they work in a way I like.
Quote
8(OPTIONAL): Genetics and Genetic Modifications for soldiers
No "genetic mutation" for soldiers but something similar in effect. Still unsure though.
Quote
9(OPTIONAL): Cybernetics and Mechanized Soldiers/Tech
There wont' be mechanized soldiers... but maybe there will be full androids like in Apocalypse. Maybe.
Quote
10(OPTIONAL): Fix some text and string errors on UFOpedia stuff (Very important for things).
12(TEMPORARILY OPTIONAL): More fixes on everything, might take months and years to fix it.
I know, it's a mess currently.

Well... Modders assemble! :D

Here's what the Plasma Rifle does in X-Com Files:
Code: [Select]
    damageAlter:
      RandomType: 6
      IgnoreOverKill: false
      ToArmorPre: 0.05
      ToStun: 0.75
      RandomWound: false
      ToWound: 0.12
      FireThreshold: 25.0

RandomWound: false means that a linear value is chosen to determine the number of wounds, generated as per ToWound value (instead of the usual 1-3).
No, I don't understand it either. :P

yeah I used "RandomWound: false" too; my problem about it is that i found (during my bit of testing) that the "weapon that inflicts many wounds" idea wasn't much interesting when put in practice.
(this is not a criticism about the feature itself, which works exactly as it should; just my taste about the gameplay).
will definitely try again though.

new version up, 0.3.7a.
unfinished mess and billions of new bugs; but at least aliens can now dine at luxurious restaurants.

I'm only reproducing/imitating the excellent work that was already done by others for X-Com Apocalypse.
The attractiveness of the tiles and combinations is to their credit.

Aren't those tables from TFTD? I don't remember seeing them in Apocalypse.

I was thinking it was the tables from the hotel in the island attack.

These tables look nothing like the TFTD ones. They aren't even of the same shape! (TFTD tables were round.)

You are right I guess. Looking closely, they do look very different. But zoomed out, to me, they look a lot alike.


Robin, is that micro-megaspawns!?
