[UNIT][GRAPHICS] Sethian
« on: January 29, 2021, 04:35:11 pm »
I've created a new alien unit based on unused concept art from X-COM: UFO Defense of a unit that didn't make it into the finished version of the game.

For comparison here is the unused concept art image:


I'm calling this alien a "Sethian" but please feel free to change the name to suit your style.

This unit pack features complete sets of Unit Sheets, BigObs & FloorObs.

The Unit Sheet uses drawingRoutine: 0 (Soldier/Sectoid)


Additionally the unit comes in 14 different colours.


There was also a concept art image of this alien holding a sword:


so I created an item out of that as well:


(Credits)
For the sword's HandOb I modified NeoWorm's "Alloy Sword" images to match the curved blade.

(Changelog)
V1-1: Brighter coloured pants.

I love to see concept and unused sprites finally made!

This totally confirms the alien help on the Pyramids, i bet they were the Pharaohs' Guard  ;D

Perhaps brightening the pants a bit will make the Sethian look more regal?
(It also brings it more in line with the concept art)


New version: Sethian Alien Pack V1-1.

If they performed that role in antiquity perhaps some of these type of aliens carrying a sword rather than an alien plasma weapon could be connected to that. Even if it is only because of some alien ceremonial tradition.

Spoilers for X-COM: UFO Defense:
Spoiler:
The final mission at Cydonia has several alien pyramids so it wouldn't be hard to make this connection and keep the unit sync'd with X-COM: UFO Defense's storyline.

Sorry, an inventory image is beyond my current abilities.
