New Alien for use as player soldier
« on: November 19, 2019, 01:15:44 pm »
Had some time on my hand and made this little fellows.
They do not look very threatening, ok...  BUT:
They can kneel.  ;)

All files included (corpse, inventory, spritesheet, etc.)

feel free to use them in any way you see fit

This slug-ish looking alien reminds me of these guys from the old DOS game Commander Keen:


They do not look very threatening
With those eyes give it an increased visibilityAtDay: / visibilityAtDark: value and equip it with a high distance weapon and I'm sure it will start looking a bit more threatening soon enough.

Thank you for creating this new alien I'm definitely going to make use of it!



I also noticed there was a file called "screen000.jpg" included with lgm.zip which displayed some interesting weapons.

Would you mind also sharing the images for this Heavy Cannon and Machine Gun? If possible I would like to use them as well:

If they are to be made into an actual Invader Race, they need a terror unit.

What would you suggest, guys?

A Beholder got me thinking of this sprite set that SideQuests uploaded a while ago:



Only one eye though.

The autocannon can be found here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5097.100.html  page 3
I will upload the other files asap, but it will take some days.

Oh, I only edited the work from others and even then it took me way too long to tell :-[
The Heavy Cannon originally came from the "Starting Weapon Matching Color" mod and the original Auto-Cannon from the FMP-mod iirc....
I merely tweaked them over and over again until I was confident their look would fit in with the other weapons. That and I changed the ammo-feed, colors, barrel size etc.  :)

Nice. I would pull the eye stalks apart to make it look deader, but otherwise no complaints. (At least from looking at it on a phone.)
