[CRAFT] Improved Skyranger
« on: April 15, 2016, 10:18:41 am »
I make a little mod like "improved Interceptor - Retaliator". Thanx Shadow for mod example.
It allows to build modified Skyranger (Skyranger-M) after researching Alien Alloys and UFO Navigation.
Skyranger-M in compare with original Skyranger have better: speed, acceleration, more fuel and more armor.
If somebody can repaint Skyranger (to see the diffirence between original Skyranger and Alloy Skyranger) it will be great.

Also i think that it is a little bit stupid bug of original XCOM game that SKYRANGER and INTERCEPTOR sold for free. WTF? O_o
You buy craft for 0.5-0.6 million dollars and then give it to somebody for free? Really?!
Now it can be sold for ~2/3 of original price.

Because they're not yours, they are being leased from someone.

Maybe someone is interested in a recolored Skyranger MCD tileset?
Thats just a alloy recolor of the original Skyranger one.

Nice one, I was thinking about something similar.

EDIT: Yes, that's exactly what I wanted! It goes straight to the FMP, thanks!

When i find the time i will also made some proper slide doors for side exits and stairs.
That thing was actually sitting in my Mod Thread like 6 months or so.

Ok back to the overcrowded appartment market in berlin.

Slide doors on a skyranger would be awesome! One of the reason's I like the Triton so much.

Well they are not that hard to make, but you actually needed 2 animations, each containing 8 frames each, so 8 different pictures and thenalso creating a proper MCD file for that (which is easily done with MCD edit).

OH well maybe i start this right now, just to not get to bored.
