========================

X-Com soldiers ruining your schemes for planetary conquest?

Insidiously small doorways thwarting your Cyberdiscs at every turn?

Well good sir, I have exactly what you need!

Sectoid in a Can!

This miracle product is guaranteed to work with just one application!*

Are they messing with your plan? You need Sectoid in a Can!

*Sectoid not included, may not actually facilitate world domination.

The Secto-Suit unit is as its name implies a Sectoid inside a mechanized battlesuit or mech.

It features two large cannon arms and despite the bulky weaponry remains a 1x1 unit that can fit through doors.

Based on the UFOpedia "HelixPsion_CPAL.png" image from Solarius_Scorch's "The X-Com Files" and the "Hybrid_Examination.png" from the amusingly titled Bootypedia of Dioxine's "X-Pirates".

There are three units. Each one has been tailored to a different one of the figures in the those UFOpedia entries.



Sprite Set Contains:
BigOb (x3), FloorOb (x3), Inventory (x3) & Unit (x3).

I've previously tried to create a Sectoid Floater which was released in the "Sectoid and Mogeko unit pack" however the movement animation was a bit strange.

This is a version with much better movement that also features the a Floater like chest cybernetic implant.

NeoWorm created an amazing Snakeman inventory image. (Which can be found HERE)



As it had distinct chest armor I've slightly alter the Snakeman sprites to reflect this.

This bipedal robot artillery comes in three versions, two for X-COM: UFO Defense and one for X-COM: Terror From The Deep.





Admittedly it is a little goofy, but I think it turned out alright.


To make the lights flash on the sides of the unit it needs Yankes's script to animate armor placed in the unit's armors: section.
[y-script] Animated armor

Sprite Set Contains:
BigOb (x3), FloorOb (x3), Unit (x3)

Usage notes:
. drawingRoutine: 0
. deathFrames: 7 (It has an extended death animation)
. You will need to attach this script by Yankes to the unit's armor for it to animate correctly:
[y-script] Animated armor

Code: [Select]
# Animate Torso Script
    scripts:
      selectUnitSprite: |
        var int reg0;
        var int reg1;
        var int reg2;
        var int reg3;
        var int in0 sprite_index; #init `in0` with value from `sprite_index`
        var int in1 sprite_offset;
       
        if eq blit_part BODYPART_TORSO;
          set reg0 anim_frame;
          unit.getId reg1;
          add reg0 reg1;
          div reg0 4;
          mod reg0 2;
          offset reg0 8 272;
          add reg0 in1;
          return reg0;
        end;
        add in0 in1;
        return in0;

Here is another new unit, the "Sectoid Probe" (or "Aquatoid Probe").  (Please feel free to change the name to suit your style.)


This pack contains three images sets. 1 for X-COM: UFO Defense and 2 for X-COM: Terror From The Deep.




The unit animates when stationary and the sides strobe when moving, it also includes a small (1 frame) electrical discharge when it attacks.


To make this work correctly it requires a blank HandOb to be used when the unit is firing and it will also need Yankes's script to animate armor to be placed in the unit's armors: section or the unit will not display the additional torso animation frames.
[y-script] Animated armor

Sprite Set Contains:
BigOb (x3), FloorOb (x3), Unit (x3)
Blank HandOb (For attack animation)

Usage notes:
. drawingRoutine: 0
. deathFrames: 8 (It has an extended death animation)
. An invisible two handed weapon is required to make the attack animation function. (Included in the .zip)
. You will need to attach this script by Yankes to the unit's armor for it to animate correctly:
[y-script] Animated armor

Code: [Select]
# Animate Torso Script
    scripts:
      selectUnitSprite: |
        var int reg0;
        var int reg1;
        var int reg2;
        var int reg3;
        var int in0 sprite_index; #init `in0` with value from `sprite_index`
        var int in1 sprite_offset;
       
        if eq blit_part BODYPART_TORSO;
          set reg0 anim_frame;
          unit.getId reg1;
          add reg0 reg1;
          div reg0 4;
          mod reg0 2;
          offset reg0 8 272;
          add reg0 in1;
          return reg0;
        end;
        add in0 in1;
        return in0;
