I hope you got them transparent (invisible) sprites while moving :)

Of course!

It's not a perfect effect, but it's about as close as I'm ever going to be able to get in the OpenXcom engine.

The signature strings sound is in though, and they're still creepy as hell in night terror missions. The graphics are obviously a work in progress, but I'm pretty happy with the direction they're going in.



I'm pretty happy with the overall look of them, but will no doubt go back to them for a few tweaks at a later date. They're basically a combination of an Ethereal, female x-com soldier and female civilian sprites, but I don't think they look too bad overall.

Gameplay-wise, you're essentially looking at something of Chryssalid speed but without the zombification mechanics. So, you know, it's probably just best not to blink.

And today's trivia question for ten points, can anyone identify this rather obscure Doctor Who villain who is soon to be joining the rogue's gallery?

Is it a static Pyrovile?

And the answer is...the sentient stones of the Ogri!



Version 0.2 has now been uploaded, and is all about rocks! The terrifying Weeping Angels and the not-quite-so-terrifying-but-still-very-rocky Ogri have now been added to the alien roster.

I've also added rough maps for the Dalek Assault Shuttle and Sontaran Scout. These are placeholders until I've had time to do new tiles for them, but represent the basic layouts of the ships to come.

The download link can be found on the first post of this thread.

Will they appear at campaign games?

Do they currently appear in campaign? No they do not.

The campaign is currently completely vanilla, other than a few tweaks and changes to the starting craft and a few texture changes. I'm more concerned at the moment with getting a large selection of units and ships ready before I start working on the campaign. If it's a campaign you're after, you'll probably be waiting a little while I'm afraid, but there's nothing stopping you from trying things out in the quick battle option.

Will they appear in the campaign? Most definitely. At some point. One day. Just not today.

In other news, a new Dalek paradigm has begun.

Awesome progress :)

Had another binge of classic who recently, not sure how I ever missed the Battlefield serial ... loved it!

Keep up the good work!

Behold, the restoration of the daleks.



And yes, there are rather too many chairs in that dalek ship.

"Wacca, wacca, wacca..."
