Hello all. I tried redesign classic Power Suit armor for openXcom.
Impressive, that armor looks intimidating!

A long shot I know, but did anyone ever do an inventory paperdoll for these? They'd make an outstanding look for XCOM androids...

Piratez's bio-suit paperdoll looks very similar.

Does anyone have pictures of inventory and corpses for this armor (acceptable in a different color)? Or just tell me the name of the mod from which I can cut them. I really liked it, I really need it :)

I did what I could and modified the X-Com: Enemy Unknown power armor into a FloorOb for this armor.

Version 1:
Doesn't exactly match the tone of black from the unit's sprite sheet.



Version 2:
Closer match to the dark colour of the original unit sprites.



Version 3:
Added glowing red eyes like in the unit sprites death animation.




I wasn't planning to do alien. But at the request drew an alternative set for the ufopedia.

It is beyond my current skill level but you may be able to take Zane's UFOpaedia entry and scale the image to create an inventory image for this armor.

I've removed the background and the vines from the face plate of the armor in the version of the image attached to this post to save anyone who wants to try resizing it some time.




Piratez's bio-suit paperdoll looks very similar.

It may be significantly easier to edit Meridian's bio-suit inventory image to match the unit sprites instead of having to fix the details on the larger UFOpaedia entry image after it has been shrunk.

I gave altering Meridian's inventory image a shot.

Modified Version:


Original Version:

What is modified in this version:
. Combined the head region with a helmet from an armor in the "
Xeno Operations v0.96 Beta" mod by XOps then coloured any stray hairs to match the face mask. (I hope you don't mind me using it XOps.)
. Changed the knee area's armor to brown.
. Converted all pipe/bio-ish areas to a darker colour.

It's not perfect but maybe you can make use of it?

Here is another modified version of the inventory image, this time the pipe & bio-ish areas are coloured to match the rest of the armor.

Alternate Version:



I find that makes the pipes on the arms and legs stand out badly though so I also tried a altering it so that the lower torso sections keep the uniform gray colour and the pipes & bio area continue to keep the darker look.


Darkened Pipes Version:


I think it worked out ok this time.
