Just tested ur mod in battlemode there, very nice. They are going to make terror missions a complete nightmare (see pic). Can't wait for a full version 2b released. On looking @ their psi stats IMO they wudn't need psi skill as in superhuman level they will be very difficult to mc anyway @ pstr=116, giving them the ability to mc ur troops wud make them virtually invincible and unplayable. Proximity type grenades seem to work ok against them so another use for my STUNBLASTER tho it does take a while to get the research.

I would have to agree.  Giving them mind control would greatly overpower them IMHO.  They're hard enough already.

their power lies in invisibility not psi powers. they will never get psi powers

SIMON, why are the graphics a bit off?

Are u meaning the vertical lines over the units or something else? Pic was taken in debug mode if that matters. Here's a copy of my current battle.cfg file if that helps. Beyond that I'm not sure.

Come on, you know you wanna hunt down those invisible, untargetable mindcontrollers right?

With explosives that would be hilarious. We should commission Ivan to attempt a terror mission with an avenger full of rookies, primed high explosives and mind controlling invisible aliens.

Sure.. maybe once:)  Honestly, I'd still be interesting in trying it.

Yes, that would awesome.   Give him a blaster pack and see how many he can knock out with one pack!

Hi, how are the UFOPedia images progressing?

I had completely forgotten about the Stalker but yesterday I remember this whole discussion and I'd like to add it to Redux.

And I'd really like to add them to the FMP! :)

The only images missing are the UFOPedia autopsy/interrogation images.
