The answer to your woes is sniper rifles. Sniper rifles are the Fireball of XCF. All problems can be solved by Fireball sniper rifles. 8)

You mean the OXCE version?
If yes, 7.7 or later.

I thought of a really cool story line for this game. i hope I'm not too out of line by suggesting it.
But would be super interesting if some of your soldiers (that were previously killed by cults/aliens) could be turned into zombies (maybe a super hard to kill boss) later in the game.
Like that one soldier you hated losing, his body was recovered by the aliens and fighting you in later missions.

Just a thought. Hope everyone is having a great day.
Still loving this game a lot. Find it really well thought out (the story line).

Impossible because XCOM already retrieves bodies to....
Spoiler:
You can revive dead soldiers via a tech called Proteanism, yes, you can bring them back from the dead as long as their death actually left a corpse behind, so not turned in to ash by plasma weapons or being turned in to monster via Chryssalid incubation or infestor bite

Yeah, I can't think of a way to do something like this, sorry.

Would you consider creating shield variants for later armor tiers than the armored/alloy vest? I was recently thinking about how one handed weapons fall out of usefulness outside of covert missions and a couple other edge circumstances. I think it would be fun to be able to run breacher units past 1999, particularly once personal armor becomes relevant.

I still give four or so of my agents one-handed weapons with mag-lites on night missions.

It would be kind of neat if we could get M203 grenade launcher attachments for M16s

Yes, but then I checked their stats and saw that the cheap flashlights also had less range. It's not like I can't afford to buy my agents the good flashlights.

Possibly, I just want to avoid the clutter. Any armour can potentially have a shield version...

Still, I'd like to make at least one late game breaching armour.

Too complex. I could do it the same way as with the OICW, but that would mean losing at least one firing mode. Not worth the hassle and confusion.

One answer to these shield/armor variant overload problems would be to make Xenonauts-style shields which are basically separate, directional shield generators. XCF already has shields (of the psychic variety), directional shield scripts inherited from Piratez and X-Chronicles reportedly has even shield HP a display. Getting the three combined and making shields independent of armour would be a large step forward, IMO.

There's also the issue of making art for some sort of advanced alien alloy shield, but I imagine that's a lesser obstacle than merging all these scripts.
