There was always something more pressing to do :)

Also, this still needs some extra work, to add insides in case one of tiles gets destroyed.

Great stuff you're doing here!

Can you explain the last step more? I can see you have a grid made for this, can you perhaps share it?

I remember wanting to do something like this in the past, but couldn't come up with a working method.

So you pick the colour you want, select it, then toggle its visibility off and use it as a mask to copy the content? That's clever!

Many thanks BD, this is invaluable.

That's incredibly cool bulletdesigner. Top notch!

Now all we need is to be able to jump in the porsche mid-mission and then run down units with it.

Combine with the zombie urban maps in xpiratez.

BOOM!

 ;D

p.s. ( "BOOM!" is the sound of a mind exploding )

This is not that much of a problem - it will take more space when landed than vanilla craft but otherwise there shouldn't be any major issues. Great work btw

In general, there are not issue on 20x20 craft map.

It cannot landing only on specific maps such as TFTD Cruise/Cargo ship maps

Another issue is that with a 20x20 craft will occupy 1/4 of the available map area in a 40x40 battlescape and it will be easier to determine the UFO's location or land right new to it. Some modded terrains might have issues if they were designed for 20x10 or 20x10 craft. This is something that the modder can solve through map generation rules or terrain redesign though.
