Again, not sure if this is a bug but I guess I should ask anyway. Is the HUMVEE supposed to have a weapon slot that it can't actually equip anything to? Granted, I seriously doubt it would be able to shoot down anything even if it could use a weapon, but it doesn't make sense for it to have a slot it can't use.

Yes, it's supposed to have it. Yes, it's probably pointless.

About that: Can the HUMVEE be modified so that the weapon point works as a turret in the Battlescape combat mode? I've seen other mods do so, such as Piratez and WH40k. It would make the vehicle more useful than a stopgap between the Van and the Helicopter.

Yes, it's possible, but it's a can of worms - first there are balance issues, and secondly we'd fall into a trap of "why doesn't this vehicle have any turrets, that vehicle from before had turrets". I'm not prepared to deal with this.

An independent turret wouldn't make sense anyway. Humvees just have a spot for a crew serve mount, you'd still need your fifth crew member sitting there manning it. In an ideal world there'd be a spot for that, but Xcom doesn't go in for mounted weapons on vehicles. Closest you'd have is someone crouching on the roof with an HMG-LMG, but that would just look silly.

Edit: Oh, on another subject how difficult would it be to recolor the basic helicopter? It seems a massive missed opportunity that Xcom isn't zipping about in black helicopters and adding to the general climate of paranoia!

Yes, that is very true.

Wouldn't be too hard :)

EDIT: No, it would be after all. :V

Ah too bad, such a conspiracy theory staple.

On the other hand, black stuff is a staple of the MiB. Actually, most X-Com native stuff is in fact white - the repurposed drone, the multilauncher, Asuka, tactical sniper rifle...
...but still, we use black vans.

Anyway, repainting it in black is possible, but would be very time consuming with all those goddamn windows and shit.

Yeah, hardly sounds worth it. We'll just assume the MIB deviously bought up all the cool black helis before XCOM could.

There was that mod that allowed you to use a military copter shortly after researching the civilian one, which allowed you to bring one extra squaddie. Alas, it is no longer compatible, a shame. Although it would make sense for the military envoy to provide you with a discontinued military helicopter capable of air inerception at some point, probably at Promotion 3, if you don't have better stuff by then.

About that: Can the (HUMVEE), MUDRANGER~2 APC, and also mbt A1M2 tanks be modified so that the weapon points works as a turret in the Battlescape combat mode? I've seen other mods do so, such as Piratez and WH40k. It would make the vehicle more useful than a stopgap between the Van and the Helicopter.

..and also on those MUDRANGERs APC swould be mounted some sentry guns - at least 1 (unmanned, automatic) weapon turret - with some rapid fire 30 ~~ 40'' Melara twin guns (double barrels)

ยดยด..instead of that small radar (saucer) antenna, or somewhere next of it >




and about MBT M1A2 tanks - would be well appreciated, if thoy could have also their gun-turrets also active, too - and act like autonomnous sentry turrets, or even (best case) playable by player


(..yap, in few more years : these X-COM mods will be just alike lim---> any Command & Conquer strateg.game :D :P

Well, here's the Osprey, so I'm not sure how to fit in yet another coptah.

It's not a bug anyway. ;)

Not exactly the mudranger, more like a butchered version of it, but it has a turret..
