Wow, they do look much better! Appreciated. I'll use it and credit you appropriately.

In other news:
In response to the community's sudden interest in mapping I have created a short guide to help you guys start. You can find it here: http://thexcomfiles.xyz/Mapping_manual_0.1.pdf (currently down as we're fixing things, should be back up later today).

I cannot download it.

Sorry, the portal was down for a few hours yesterday (early installment kinks). Should be fine now.

Do you mind if I post your new x-com mapping guide in the /r/xcom? I know most users there are only interested in the remakes, but you never know where someone talented and interested may lie.

Of course, go ahead! And if you don't mind, put the link here.

If there are any recurring questions, I can make an addendum.

I was messing around in The X-Com Files resource folder and noticed that the Taser Cannon's HandOb has a higher amount of detail than that weapon's FloorOb. So I was thinking that perhaps the front facing HandOb frame would make a better FloorOb in this case?

Also the dimensions for the FloorObs for both the Taser Cannon and its ammo were 32x48 instead of 32x40 causing most of the image to be cut off when rendered on the battlescape. I have attached resized versions to this post for convenience.

As an additional bonus a HandOb for the Taser Cannon Clip has also been fashioned from the item's FloorOb.

Original FloorOb / New FloorOb:
