Those are ufo2000-screenshots. Looks like somebody here plays it, still. =) If you are up for a game, just send me a PM... ;D

Request to all Spriters out there.

I am searching for someone which can do this, iam myself do not have the time or the skill todo it.

To display the severity of the aliens power, it would be nice to have a MCD file containing a proper Battletank.
Also some destroyed version would be nice. So we can add them towards Maps as a tileset. (3x4 tiles should be good).
Some examples:

Leopard 2
M1 Abrams
T 90

Some Infantry vehicles would also be good.

This was posted by someone a while ago, might be useful for artists:

There's a cow sprite from Jagged Alliance that I'd love to add to Farm terrain...

Cows sprites are relatively popular, for example take Diablo sprites.

About battletanks, you basically mean units larger than 2x2, right? I think the engine is not exactly ready to work with that, and even if it does, unit height would be a problem... And how would it turn? I've been thinking about this too...

If someone converted the sprites of a 4x4 cow then it might be possible to add it as a civilian unit, and you'd have cows walking around the farm :)

I'd like a tank just as terrain, it would fit very nicely on Area51 terrain.

My dear friend, I'm also planning on adding pigs, chickens and dogs too! :)

Yeah, but... it would be such a shame not to be able to fire it. :D

Dude, chill out, we happen to know what a TANK is :)

I wanted to include 1:1 tanks/APCs for a long time now, but I haven't come with a surefire idea how to make them work (ie. fire their big guns, because that'd be supercool). The basic idea is to make the hull terrain, and the turret 2x2 unit, but that'd only work for very specifically prepared maps.

Well jeah, i would also only have them as a terrain, which could be put into Maps, nothing functional.

Well i only wanted to have it as a terrain to be placed on maps without any function. I would even prefer damaged tanks/apc's above undamaged ones, since when X-Com arrives the Aliens usually have already decimated any human Military.

So, about this Village terrain I started a long time ago... I still think it's dearly needed, since the only kind of "village" we have is the American-style Farm terrain, which doesn't suit Eurasia (the biggest land mass on Earth) very well. So I wanted to make a terrain more suitable to the Eastern/Northern hemisphere.
Sadly, I am so swamped with other projects that I can't really continue it seriously, so I would like to ask if someone would be interested in continuing it, either by themselves or with me. What is needed is primarily tile graphics.

Here are the blocks I already have:


(and the other direction, not shown)











Attaching the relevant files.

Tileset order is:
VILROADS
VILBITS
VILBAN
VILFRNITURE
VILDECOR


(Hobbes, if you think this post should be in its own separate thread, please let me know.)

EDIT:

Attached a small additional swamp tileset I made, if anyone's interested:

OK, it took more than 2 years (and a cooperation with Dioxine - I love modding jams!), but the village terrain is done!









If you're interested in using it, please let me know. For now it's in the X-Com Files mod.
