Well I am, but I can find such photos anytime, anywhere... I'm hoping for something of more artistic value.

Heh. Real people issues aside, that would be 20 years too early. ;)

The cloning technology for frogs was available since 1950s (mammal ova are much smaller). The sheep was cloned in 1996 — same method would work for humans. The recently hyped experiment also involved some genetic modifications — but those were a reality by 2000, probably earlier. The obstacles were purely ethical. So, cloning a human in 1997 is quite realistic. Cloning humans with genetic corrections wouldn't be much of a stretch even for harder SF.

Well, if you get to the bottom of this, many factions have advanced cloning already. Some even clone their personnel (not in the game yet). So yes, it's possible in-universe, but at the same time it's completely hidden in the "shadows".

-Name: Erwin Larch
-Role: Person of Interest, Medical Examiner (autopsy tech.)
-Affiliation: (best left to dev)
-Details: Erwin Larch has evaded capture since 1992 and is currently wanted for the following crimes: Impersonation of a state trooper, hijacking, theft of twenty one (21) scientific cadavers, illegal transport of human remains across state borders, murder. Little conventional evidence was left to the intent of this crime, though Larch's home contained a variety of taxidermy equipment and embalming equipment.
-Status: Missing

not a reference to any person living or dead.

Just figured you might want someone who seems like they are responsible for zombies or other such horrors. Perhaps supply or acquisition of material or people for this purpose.

Okay, thanks - I'll put him in the bank.

And Dolly is a funny idea, but can you translate the drunken researcher's part to English? :D

Staff input : laser weapons safety. (done by financial lady)

 I know the laser technology is fun and all, but I need to lay some ground rules.
1. No using lasers to graffiti walls. Stick to "permanent" marker.
2. No using lasers as a "really effective" power point presentation tool.
3. No using lasers as toys for test animals. Its only cute until they CATCH the laser.
4. NO PUTTING PRISMS ON LASERS FOR A DISCO BALL EFFECT. I swear to GOD if I find who did this, I WILL PUT YOU UP FOR EXECUTION.

Obviously, this must happen after laser weapons are unlocked.

 "Ben & Lewis Save the world" is what got me back to Xcom after all these years and I assume enough people here have watched them, so I thought it would be nice if they would get their own dossier according to their playstyle.

Name: Lewis & Ben

Role: Terrorists

Affiliation: Men in Black

Details: 2 Commanders from MiB who campaign across the globe with no regard for human life, whilst posing as Xcom operatives. They leave a trail of terror & destruction behind wherever they go. Their main purpose is to tarnish the good name of Xcom and create international tensions, thus removing the main obstruction to the alien invasion.

Status: Xcom's most wanted

As for the picture, I was thinking of Lewis & Ben in MiB suits, having a "cool guys dont look at explosions" pose  8) . But before I went ahead with my mediocre photoshop skills, I thought it would be better to wait for your opinion on it.

Maybe even a mission where you have to capture them dead or alive, where they and their crew only use High-Ex, rockets and grenade launchers ;D

PS. Xcom Files is an amazing mod! Thanks alot for creating it.
