  1. So, whats going on with this project? I am dying longing for those saucer shaped ufos!!
  2. Can anyone who doesn't suck at file compatibility and modding tell me if this is compatible with the game still? Really liked these projectiles over OG.
  3. I remember sometime seeing an animated logo for Goldhawk Interactive on youtube? Chris, you should put this in before entering the mainmenu ingame, as is standard for games. Its your first game. You should grab the opportunity to establish your franchises's logo in the minds of people playing it. Regards!
  4. Confirmed here as well. But i had it already in 1.0
  5. Hi, i posted this in another (wrong) thread a while ago, where it didn't really belong. So i give it a try here. I get the feel the Aliens most of the time still are quite stationary. They seem to linger in pretty much the same areas on the same maps time after time. They should roam the maps more aggressively?, When contact is made other aliens should be drawn to assist. Now most of the time, i am finding them in the same spots. I feel the mission variety would gain greatly if the Aliens as a group, randomly choose between say three different "team behaviors" Representing the local alien commanders choice of strategy against the Xenonauts. -Aggressive protection. Most of soldiers and crew, actively attack the Xeno dropship as a counter. Reckless strategy to put severe hurt on a not careful an unsuspecting commander. - Balanced stance. Much like the aliens act on all maps today. Some are in the terrain waiting, lurking. Some protect the UFO. Maybe this should be the most common if the ufo has landed. And you catch the alien scum with their pants down. -Defensive stance. Most aliens, except some random sniper or strangler, protect the UFO. Dug in around it, and awaiting the breach in full force. A good way to make you not knowing what to expect from each UFO assault? In attacks upon Xeno facility for instance, some Alien commanders could choose to move their force in a big group to present an aggressive attack in force against the command center. Some alien commanders might choose to spread out and make great damage to the entire facility. Maybe its too advanced coding involved and maybe its too late. But i feel its a pretty good idea, so i throw it out there. And small drones should put way more fire in the terrain, like fire all the time. Now they most of the time take reaction shots. And last two times i faced larger drones, they just sat there starring at me, no movement, and no fire. Up their aggression please
  6. Ok. I have fought some battles up to my first terror attack and base attack. I would like to raise a few things that crossed my mind. 1) I feel the Aliens most of the time still are quite stationary. They seem to linger in pretty much the same areas on the same maps time after time. They should roam the maps more aggressively i feel, when contact is made other aliens should be drawn to assist. Now most of the time, i feel i am finding them in the same spots. BUT i really feel they are superb at seeking cover, which is great. I feel the mission variety would gain greatly if the Aliens as a group, randomly choose between say three different "team behaviors" Representing the local alien commanders choice of strategy against the Xenonauts. -Aggressive protection. Most of soldiers and crew, actively attack the Xeno dropship as a counter. Reckless strategy to put severe hurt on a not careful an unsuspecting commander. - Balanced stance. Much like the aliens act on all maps today. Some are in the terrain waiting, lurking. Some protect the UFO. Maybe this should be the most common if the ufo has landed. And you catch the alien scum with their pants down. -Defensive stance. Most aliens, except some random sniper or strangler, protect the UFO. Dug in around it, and awaiting the breach in full force. Quite a simple way to make you not knowing what to expect from each UFO assault. In attacks upon Xeno facility for instance, some Alien commanders could choose to move their force in a big group to present an aggressive attack in force against the command center. Some alien commanders might choose to spread out and make great damage to the entire facility. 2) Small drones should put a lot more fire on the Xenonauts. I have faced them many times. And they are described as a suppression unit. Yet the only time they fire against me, its reaction shots, with great damage on a single soldier. This is cool. But where is the tons of fire that should be coming my way to make me keep my head down? 3) Its quite annoying that every rookie basically is greatly hampered by wearing armor. Yet later it is the only good way to make them live long enough to improve. Maybe armor should eat more time units while on the move? So the rookie would be slower if moving, but if he is stationary, he could still have full TU to put some fire on the Aliens. And i am having a blast with the game i bought. Love it. Cheers Maybe i put this in the wrong thread? Sorry in that case.
  7. Sweet. Thanks for your time.
  8. Is there a way to mod inner walls into the UFOs? I dont see the reason why there are no walls. It makes them look so empty and its strange when only a doorway marks where there should be a wall. Cheers
  9. Hi. Have just tried the new build. Haven't played the game for about 6 months. A small thing that disturbed me. Why does all developed aircraft weapons sound the same? All guns have the same sound? Would be nice if the cannons would sound different depending on either its laser or kinetic? And maybe some epic multiple explosion effects for bigger ufos, when they go down. Its not as if more immersion and variation would hurt the air combat, and sound is very potent. Otherwise i love what you have done so far. Enjoying it a lot and i don't regret my kickstarter funding one bit. Even though my portrait seems cursed cheers
  10. You can simply download his file and look at the effects through opening the files. I like them, but i dont like the plasma bolts in OG, but i have to see yours ingame! Good work anyways! But i think you also need impact effects to go with them? Right?
  11. Well we are just facing the same ships in the alpha? Wont different types of UFOs solve the problem of repetitive game play? I find fighting corvettes quite epic. Well don't stop evolving it pls Chris! I enjoy quite a lot, and i think many do.
  12. Yes. I don't think anyone thought you offered to mod all the ships by yourself. Hence my winking smiley. But you posted a new kind of possible solution in a thread about "new solution" on a issue where i think many people still are hoping for another alternative. Nice that you are trying anyways, cause as of now, with now "inner hull" and only inner walls. I am thinking maybe i should learn to mod myself. And you also Raakku! Nice work. I didn't realize you said pretty much the same thing, since my brain can apparently only understand these things when presented in pictures!
  13. Well ZZZ1010, nice work as always. I am very impressed! Gonna be waiting for your mods
  14. Too Americanized also. "Gun shops out of stock" ) In most countries i have been to gun shops isn't even a thing to consider. Since they don't exist. And if they do, they sell parts of guns or hunting gear. I agree with Gorlom. Farmers should be armed. If not to protect their animals from foxes and such, they might be hunters. But otherwise i feel there are too much weapons already on civies. The odd pistol armed one is fine. Are there any maps in Xenonauts were there are no civilians? That would be nice.
  15. Well, i can imagine you easier can produce a much tougher AI in turn based games than you would in real-time games. Since the AI can calculate on a fixed setting and not respond to human "irrational" decisions. Unbeatable though? I would like to see it to believe it. But a very though AI sounds really fun. Hopefully this is a true claim. Anyway. Nice to hear about the progress! Always fun.
