Still have more Terraforming to do, especially now that all those dry lake and exposed ocean floor can have TFTD added to it

That's an amazing terrain for something done so cheaply. Now it would be easy to do tile substitution of sea sand to normal desert and mountains to make more variety of this dry lake terrain (which can also be salt lake/post-agricultural salt desert).

Yep, my thinking also, this was  like 10 mins work to get this one set brought in, best of all i didnt have to modify any Routes ( i hate doing routes!!!!!!) My ZOmbies with  Guns took Way longer to make :) Though i bet Hobbes has already plundered these over the years and built them into his Mapsets ;)

Oh, that's great. I hope i'll be back to my game (maybe my no-IM mode exp. campaign with 20 mods, which is part of a challenge i am doing with 1 of the 5 available diffs (with no IMM first, then yes IMM after) in 1 campaign with everything UFO-TFTD related. :D) just to see what i am doing correctly/incorrectly.

Version 2  of my Terraformed globe to handle all the TFTD underwater Terrains ( i will most likely redo the sprite for Geoscape as its too yellow compared to the maps).

also,Some war-torn urban from the first war, that are now overtaken by the Alien Jungle.

I love the modified urban terrain.



I agree, maybe the terrain texture could be darker, maybe brown-orange could be good.

With the help of some experts, today we did some pallet experiments to see if i could bring underwater mission to this mod WITHOUT using the ugle TFTD pallets! Note the below screens are just from the TEST pallet  :P

So these are 3 different pallets for 3 different depths, the "V" are just different light levels.

Update:
TheReaverofDarkness has been making some alternate ones also, see below:

Also note: for now every alien can swim under water, how i will handle this long term i do not know yet.

Update 2: Started adding Water to the globe

Have you considered adding weapons with radioactive damage? As a new type of damage, of course. This, given that radiation is an important thing in the Alien Civil War. The weapons of Fallout and Metro (2033, Last Light) would be perfect!

Does sound like its needed,  but i have no idea how to do that yet.

Update:
Almost finished my globe, just need a update from the Coders to fix the colour issues in daylight :)

It's easier than you think!

I've already asked this before. alinare (via PM), The Reaver of Darkness and Solarius Scorch help me solve this. :D

A productive day today, i have correct some polygon issues on the globe ( some issues still elude me but for now its ok).
I have changed several textures on the globe.
I have brought in all the TFTD maps except the alien colony's and underground ones.
I have corrected some unit sound issues ( some more are still outstanding)
and finally i got my soldier class names working  :)

I was meant to be back on map building by now but thats just the way it is.

I like the ocean textures now. They look realistic. ;)

BTW, I was talking to alinare yesterday and he said that once you start making your weapons, he will gladly help you make the rulesets. And I the sprites. So let us know when the time comes, count with us. ;D
