[REMOVED] [DONE] [Suggestion] Add Execution Advanced Option
« on: August 11, 2015, 05:27:33 am »
Would be nice if there was a way to execute unconscious aliens on the ground or that you're carrying with a held weapon, instead of having to drop a grenade.

That takes forever though; I just want to put a bullet through their head without wasting countless mountains of TUs and Stim charges.

I believe what you are looking for already exists in OpenXCom Extended by Yankes, where you can target units lying on the floor. Haven't tried it myself though..

Oh my god. Yes please; for TFTD and X-Com.

Would make my TFTD run with gear self-destruct so much less tedious; have to spam stuns in order to get a decent gear haul, but that in turn requires a stupid amount of micro to deal with the unconscious aliens.

It could really do with a 'stamp on alien' option.  I'm thinking of those times some lobsterman I stunned was running around and ambushing my guys after I thought I cleared the place out.

Wouldn't mind an option to ice them again as well. A live Calcinite that I wanted to keep woke up and wiped out several of my guys before I could kill it. That was annoying.  :'(

IMO, a good system would be that non-AOE shots that end up on a ground tile hit an unconscious unit lying there : The player would have the option of force-firing on a stunned alien (from 1 square away, usually) to finish them off, and firefights near stunned characters would be dangerous to them.
