Any further progress on nuked land/city?
On the nuke maps i still need to build more variations of buildings but have moved  on for now since these buildings are so large it becomes a big job each time i do one (so i wanted a break). I also still need to come up with a savage style of buildings to go on these maps but am still looking for insperation.

The Gillmen Kingdom is truly beautiful.

I'm eager to wreck havoc on this land.

Just a quick update to show that work is still progressing here, currently i am expanding my underground terrain sets and one of these sets includes a new Snakeman base, still going to need another week or two get see how it turns out.

Still only early days on this one, right now most mapblocks are identical to others as i only just got the Digtunnel command working ( thanks to Warboy and Hobbes) so now i can go through and start tweaking the blocks until i am happy.

Found windows 10 has a built in screen capture program, just testing it out whilst testing my  newest mapset for bugs...

Ok so i have been given permission to borrow some assets from "oXc - War of Shadows" so i have just imported his Ships,  i will need to tweak a few of these to suit my personal tastes but this is a awesome mapset and i look forward to placing my slant on it for use in the Civil War :) Great work  jackstraw2323


UPDATE:
i am going to split these off to make a different ufo set using this MCDset as a base, plus think i like blue better  :P

Would be cool to have The Thing like aliens. Which could randomly infect/replace player's soldiers or civilians, and then hatch at some random moment, when player least expects it. There could be kits to test for infection/replacement, and robotic soldiers immune to it, etc... But guess it will require modding the engine.

Such a mission exists in X-Com Files, feel free to take it if you like.

Some interesting suggestions for sure, we may need to dig into the code for Xcom Files to see what other gems you have done over the years :)


Below are some new Alien Hulls i have been playing with, at this stage i wont guarantee they will end up as part of the set as currently i am still experimenting with the outer hull shapes:)

Wow! Impressive! :0 This crystal UFO will definitely have quite resistant protective shields.

Any clue as to how the interior will look?

Havent started the interiors yet ( well i have tweaked a couple of sprites but i have not done anything for the inside on the map blocks yet). I need to review how the original sprites where used and work out if i will keep them or not. In the original, he has spinning crystals which i think was the control panels for the ship and crystals with people inside ( note sure what function they are yet), note sure if i will keep these or not yet.

Should get the last couple of exterior shapes done over the weekend and hopefully be looking at the interiors the following week. I also need to build a Base for these guys also, i have some ideas but will need to see how it goes.

It makes sense that the crystals serve as a catalyst for psy energy, as much for navigating as for dogfights.  IIRC, the original description of UFO Navigation says that it uses the pilot's neural waves to fly the ship.

 I honestly do not think that all the different factions have access to this type of technology, I doubt that without the direct support of the Ethereals they will continue to work.  We have been at war for 50 years and who knows how many in civil war.  I'd love to see some steering wheels and rudimentary flight controls with levers on the transports of other factions.
