Idea for mission
« on: May 15, 2020, 08:53:48 pm »
I play and suddenly the mission is at the North Pole, I fly in, and there is "Thing". Awesome reference. Maybe you should do something similar with a predator? An unknown signal, disembark, corpses without skin around and a predator with imba characteristics capable of destroying the entire team. After the battle, give a spear, disk, or plasma gun as a trophy. (In general, predators have many interesting weapons for close combat)
You can do several similar missions. Let them be rare, with a good unique reward.

I actually suggested this to Solarius, he shot the idea down, cause he does not want to make too many references.

Actually, Meridian Hunter is supposed to be something between a Predator and Boba Fett... so I'd say it's covered :)

Despite all the shout-uts in articles, I am not really interested in inserting direct stuff from other franchises, I think it breaks the imersion. The thing works, because this kind of enemy is generic enough to work on its own. Yautjas, Xenomorphs from Alien etc. are different.

(I'd make an exception for Master of Orion, because it's awesome and fits the X-Com franchise well enough, but it's not exactly a setting, more like a bunch of concepts. After all, it's a 4X game. :) )

Funny you talk about Master of Orion, because both X-COM and MoO were made by Micropose, so they could easily be in the same universe.

I recently realized Alpha Centauri is a sequel to Civ 2, so theorically, SMAC might be in the same "metaverse". Probably not the same universe, because SMAC is a hard-sci fi universe while X-COM/MoO are soft sci-fi. Through all of these share the concept of Psionics.

Universes often share doppelgangers, so perhaps some characters of SMAC exist in the other universe. Then again, I think the oldest (Yang or Zakharov) was born in like 1991 or late 80s, so they are probably kids by the time XCF rolls around.

This post was born from ideas I had involving X-COM/MoO and SMAC crossovers. And possibly from the idea of seeing X-COM fight Mind Worms

SMAC is so removed from anything X-Com related (not even sharing the same planet) that it's totally fine to consider it happening in the same setting.

I don't know if there would be any impact on XCF, though - mind worms can't travel between the stars.

Fett compared to Meridian Hunter is like comparing kittens to a lion. Merdian's mission cost me my eight soldiers, more dragonfly, more extra equipment and above all dignity.

You have to give the option of nuclear devices, so if there is a next mission against Meridian I will make the country where it is located disappear.

I guess getting a pile of High Ex thrown at your feet is a better send off than tripping into the sarlaac pit.

Didn't he survive that?
Depends on the story though, I am not sure that it is canon now.

He did in the old EU. Not sure about the current canon.
