Still, having two versions around means twice as much work fixing any bugs.

But you might need them :)

For the Defense scenarios I had to create alternate terrain versions where the spawning of XCom/alien units is different, since there XCom usually starts inside a base and the aliens outside.

A Gill Man actually.

I even have a save. Probably won't work without the three mods I usually run with, though (which are pretty small on the other hand. A soldier stats mod which nerfs MC, a craft mod that mods alien weapon range, and a mod that adds incendiary grenades..). I can make a zip file with all that stuff if you want...

here are the screenshots

Thanks you, I found it! The map tile is called COMRCURBAN16 and luckily the fix was as simple a copying the corresponding file from X-Piratez. I think I used an old version. I'll upload the individual file for you as a hotfix, although I'm pretty sure it won't fix any existing saves

Yes! Looks like Hobbes has taken care of porting polar island terrain to UFO now.

I don't think I'm going to work any more on the beach urban map, I'm not exactly happy with it as a terror site but I'll keep it in. If i'm going to spend more time on the concept I'd rather just make a whole new map, I'm not exactly lost for ideas there. Preview of what I'm working on next:

What is it ?

PS:
I like urban beach terrain, canal maps too.

Civillian converted urban terrain before, but without these environmental adaptations.

I know, I used Civilian's conversion as the base, it's in the credits. I just wanted to give it a nautical theme.

This is a work in progress on an oil rig, a 6x6 map with sea on all four edges. It'll be highly scripted but enough variations for the number of times it'll be seen in game, I hope.

Nice. I've thought of designing an oil rig before. Good luck!

Wow, i think kinda broke my record on reading this (along other ones i've kept reading yesterday, like a few, and a one i should like to think of like USO Deep Strike by Dr Crowley. :) ), 1 OP and 22 replies on 2 pages. Not a bad reading score. ;D

sorry that i necroed the thread/topic, my bad. Also, Blank's not available online as we say, or i don't think he/she might've been alive IRL as i don't care much. :(

I'll apologize since i have broken my record on reading this old thread. ::)
