Nice upgrade on the space suits! I like the look a lot more too :)

Which prompts.. may I loot and modify them for a TftD "light dive suit" ? With due credit, of course!

Hello! been awhile since I've updated so here goes!!

This is the first part of version 0.4, it contains -

1. Early research tree around 25 topics
2. Laser weapons, pistols and rifles
3. New body Armor, the Battle plate mk1
3. New types of ammo for standard weapons
4. 3 different soldier types, from the starting terran soldiers to the NHA soldiers then to the cheaper SHA soldiers
5. A more fledged out database, which I recommend having a scan though first.
6. Bug fixes and gfx improvements for globe
7. Plenty of new sprites
8. Bad spelling

Whats not in this part - and will be in the final version 0.4 (part B)

1. Any mission scripting at all, the all important monthly battles etc
2. Some research relies on the mission scripting so it dependences will be changing rather soon
3. Aliens database text

Works with openxcom_git_master_2016_03_21_2355.

Feedback would as always be greatly appreciated  8)

Small update! The first monthly battle is nearly complete 2 missions are done (nearly) with a 3rd in the planning stage.

The screenshots are of the first 2 missions from the "battle of the Mariner Trench" where the US army is fighting the Taurans. 1st mission has you clearing the exit route of the retreating troops while the other has you taking out a communications array used by the aliens to pin point airstrike raids.

Just a quick note, you will only get to play 1 mission per monthly battle, so there should be some good replay ability  ;)

Criminy, lib, you've made a lot of progress while I wasn't looking! I'll have to have a peek at the new stuff, see if it works on Android, that sorta thing. Good job  :D

This still looks fantastic and the updated HUD has a lot of potential, but has this project died out or are you just taking a break?

Unfortunately, it seems that liberation's been on a hiatus of sorts for some time. I haven't heard from him here or on IRC since that update was posted.

Same here, which is unfortunate because the potential that this project had was immense. Oh well, at least it produced some very good content to savor on for the time being.

It's great to heard news from you, liberation!
I've been following you mod since... I can't remember, a very long time. BFM is one of my favorite mods for OXC, I really thought it was dead. :'c

When we are going to get some new update for this mod?

I believe that liberation has some more important things to do in his/her life (sorry,dunno the gender) that's why maybe this mod takes a really long time to have an update
