And what properties should have lovered shields?
Different look and bullet permeability?
(I want to help with it)

So the problem with the doors is this, if i use it as a UFO_DOOR (in MCDEDIT), it only animates when it opens which is not what i am after, i want it to constantly be animated until i open it, then i want it to switch to the alt-door item ( which is graphically just the shield generator slot on the ground).

If i try to use the Std Door ( Human door entry in MCD-Edit), thanks to TheReaverofDarkness, it now switches to the alternate-MCD correctly but when the turn ends, it doesnt re-activate the shields for the next turn ( like UFO doors do).

As a test, i also tried turning on UFO_Door and Door at the same time ( to see what the game does), now it doesnt animate at all, the door switches to an alternate MCD and never turns back:)

Other than the animation side ( which i dont think can be fixed without some code changes to the engine, which i am going to assume are low priority at best), When shields are up ( and animated) the Block Line of sight value is active, this means you cant see through it, i have also added Lofts to these so you cant Shoot through it ( unless you destroy it) and both of these work good .

So until someone finds a solution here, i will stop it from being a DOOR so it works similar to the stargate goa'uld's persoal shields, you can pass through it slowly ( walking speed) but cant shoot through it :)

Nord, if you like , tonight i can send you a test file also so you can try for yourself.

Ok, i got it.
How i see there is only partial solution:
Add animated object in same cell. But it will satay animated when door opens. But carefully chosing, you can make it look like part of shining forcefield turning off, allowing to pass through glow.

Starting a Human UFO set now, so many factions, so many UFOs required :)

Note: the colours are a work in progress :)

Looking Good! But say, shouldn't the Xcom signs be removed?

I always thought that the tileset Lightning could be indicated for a new family of ufo instead that for xcom craft, I think that XOps's crafts could be more suitable for XCom.

Thake a look to Heracle craft from Reaver's Faithful Megamod:

Yes, eventually :), only just starting to play around with this tileset.

Also from XOps mods there is a family of spectacular UFOs

I had never seen these ones ( as that mod come ot when i went missing from OXC for 5 years), they will definetly be coming into OXC-Factions :)


If there is any other cool set that i have missed over the years please let me know :)

LOL yes, i am actively trying NOT to steal Robins work ( well i have stolen some sprites and recoloured them) as Once Factions is  stable&working,  i want to then move onto the Full Alien Civil war version (where you play as aliens) and i want Robins work in that version.

OXC_Factions is play as Humans (and eventually get some aliens on your team)
OXC Civil War is Expansion where you play as aliens ( and need full alien base)

I miss BFM. It was a good mod. It's a shame that has been inactive for two years.
