Drawing of basescape entrances
« on: October 25, 2015, 10:50:43 pm »
Lately I had a look on the basebits graphics and was a bit surprised to see that together with the tunnels also entrances should be drawn (see the two red circled parts in the basebits image).

However in the basescape in openxcom the enrances are only drawn for lift and hangars. It would be nice to have those entrances also for other facilities. Maybe it is an issue with drawing order.

Honestly, in all these years playing the game I never noticed there were entrances drawn at all, but since I know we could have the entrances drawn, I miss them somehow ;) .

I believe, the problem is the two layer design. You have the entrances. But they are not visible, as there is that second floor on top of them. For hangars, this is not true. So you can see them. As for the lift: That'd be the wrong part. =)

The design is intentional, as you can't see the entrances from the second floor, and they would look wrong otherwise:
