How about the Marsec Minilauncher from XCOM:Apocalypse? This one handed low power missile launcher used to be one of my dual wielding weapons of choice.

We already have a few minilaunchers, for example the shoulder launcher.

It'd be cool to see the eurosyndicate more developed and fleshed out in the future versions. Fighting cyborg corporate agents using high tech weapons ala Syndicate and Syndicate wars would be great, and it wouldn't take that much new stuff to make it happen, since there's already a healthy dose of eurosyndicate weapons in the game. It could work as an alternate way to get your hand on eurosyndicate weapons, other than the contract.
Why even take the deal if you get markslaser just for contacts. Lock it up behind the deal.

Piratez need a lot of things but another basic bitch firearm with slighly different stats is not one of them. Hell, some of the high end Marsec guns don’t even show in the game, despite them having code and sprites and everythign since forever.

Agree, for some more of such "realism" there is openxcom files :)

I'd tell the same for the laslock coporation, pheraphs a couple of bootypedia articles would be fine  8)

laslock marklaser may be a suitable name for a laslock musket.  :)

You're really boring, Linux.

Tha't my trademark! Jockes aside, a nice alternative sprite for the ramshackle rifle i made here, pheraps needs some modifications.

*OICW"

( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objective_Individual_Combat_Weapon )

I would reeeally suit very very well :)

Alternatively, as new ramshackle sprite rifle, a good idea may be to modify the Galil AR sprite on openxocm file forum  :)

As much as I like ideas like the OICW and rifles with grenade launchers, I don't think there's a good way to add them to openxcom, since its essentialy one gun with two different kinds of shots, and AFAIK, there's no way to use two different kinds of ammo on the same weapon.

It's possible with OXCE, but kinda wonky GUI-wise and therefore it's not used in Piratez.

Well a lookalike weapon like OICW may fine; it has a very futuristic look, and who says that it has to have a grenade launcher attached? ;)

As for suitable convoy battlescape sprites substitutes, please look here, especially the second page yummy!!!

..definately xPiratez need (would be fitting into whole UfoXCom universe) some mystery, devil'ish,  occult,  diabolo, still smart ~~  *Ninth Gate*  theme, and such Quest...

http://fidcal.com/Ninth%20Gate/  ~~  *Ninth Gate*  theme, and i suggest exactly same  such .."Quest...,  as was Iin that movie (and Arturo~Perez~Reverte'  book, novel  ~~ search, and find 1 or few rare books, (or litographies),  which will be then needed, as necessary prerequisities, for "conjuring, invoke the "demon"
( "conjuring the Kreegan(s)" )

https://youtu.be/6HRQkXvw2I4


..also,  whole that occult things, topic w. Devil resembles me a bit ~~ yap!, Kreegans, aliens evils race, from Might&Magic^ classic old-school rpg-Serie' "Kreegans", aliens, abit aggressive, conquering race.. from very distant stars..

I'd humbly ask; a it more of coherence: crackdowns on piratez base should be lead by enemies player he had dealt before and/or have hurt, not factions that were not encountered before, that would be nice especially for the dark ones, unless player has researhed/done something to activate their presence; and i've noticed they always are more numerous than he other attackers, as in "nightmare" difficult in real doom!!? :o

That just happens (On the first 18-24 months) with the major factions. The minors ones, like dark ones, ratman, etc, tend to be marauders, and as such, they are looking for places to plunder. I think is kind of coherent right now. Major factions should not bother with another band of outlaws, but minors are all the time trying to find a place to take advantage of it.

I know; but since the dark ones are not just ordinary ones - come from hell or supposedly from another dimension -  their assaults should be more rare; or at least involving some particular actions from the player. That's all :)

Alrady noted https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5821.msg110260.html#msg110260 At least right now seems that Deep Ones are appearing as soon as Sea Transport topic is researched, i really wish im not wrong.

You don't care about it if you met them before, you just go out and loot and pillage. So why shouldn't others do the same?
