Hey, a quick scan (so as not to spoil anything for myself) would indicate that at least a few of these are in game already or coming - see reply to your previous thread here.

A quick use of the search facility will pretty quickly come up with direct links to a number of the others that were also replied to in that response.

Thothkins That thread needs to be deleted, when i track down a ADMIN Ill have em kill it, this new one has all that organized into the place it goes

be it "IN GAME" or "WISH LIST" with updates and more info compiled from your forums while dropping the "im an artist and can help ya" bit. I needed to make initial contact and used that thread for that, now it needs to go away and I need to wrap my head around your game and what the people want in it...thus this final thread I've made but thanks for the help, you guys are very polite and professional over here, the steam forums are...::shudders::

Max_caine Thanks for the links, hope this speed up my efforts to wrap my head around everything that is done, is being deved, and get this down to just the actual wish list

Still have several general threads of 30+ pages each to go through, but gimi a week

The steam forums?

It's full of rude, crude, 12 year old's who just want to cry and troll...that and the foraxis damage control teams screaming and insulting People cuz their game is...well...

How to be polite...

"Its not at the level a AAA release should be from a big publisher after a 4 year or more dev time with an open source engine"

...ya that's polite : )

Id say more but... man.... you don't want to get me started on that...lets keep our forums polite and professional

What's wrong with the steam forums?

I'm guessing it's standard problems of any forum that has that many and diverse users. Mob mentality and due to the high number of users everyone feels more anonymous there than they would do in a small comunity like the Xenonauts forum.

Also the format seems to encourage shorter more limited posts. you can post long stuff but it doesnt happen that much procentually compared to other speciallized forums.

(check out the comment section on "pokie pirates" in the greenlight section to see a really horrible example of steam users being stupid and or jumping the bandwagon. Everyone simply assumes that the developers doesn't have the rights to use the characters but noone has any evidence of that and the developers is acctually advertising that the game is based on and centered around that brand/IP whatever)

I find that a lot of commenters that say stuff on steam greenlight either have horrible reading comprehension or just doesn't read at all.

Looking at the above list, it’s a bit sprawling. It takes a bit of work to get a feel for what’s actually going on. Just a thought would be to format it in such a way…

Base

[table=width: 730, class: grid, align: left]

[tr]

[td] Item [/td]

[td] Status/ Link[/td]

[td] Date [/td]

[td] Comments [/td]

[td] Discussed - Possible [/td] [td]31/12/12 [/td]

[td]Less of a requirement as Aliens will not only come through hangers/ elevators. [/td]

[/tr]

[/table]

Where:-

Item – Concise issue description. For example “Ability to rotate rectangle of say hangers from up-down to left right” becomes simply “Rotate Base Facilities”

Status/Link– Where the item is in the development process. Categories should be consistent and limited. Suggestions include:-

Confirmed in Game

Confirmed for Later Build

Confirmed to be Moddable

Confirmed to be Moddable in Later Build

Discussed – Unlikely

Discussed - Possible

Discussed – Unconfirmed

Discussed – Confirmed Not in Plans

This field also contains an underlined link to the a relevant post in the forum for further discussion/ background information.

Date – The date that the Hub entry was last modified

Comments – Any additional comments that fall out with brief description or forum discussions.

Other comments:-

Remove any spoilers from the list. If it’s a wish list, it shouldn’t be spoiling things for people who haven’t peaked in the assets folders please. If it is very pertinent to discussions please use the spoiler tags

.

I’m sure one of the Devs compiles bug reports. Matt? So, you may just be duplicating work there. For discussion of workarounds to issues, I’d suggest a separate list in the Bug Report forum.

I was looking for this thread in the Suggestions & Features section, for that matter.

Bear in mind that we’re close enough to Beta that I doubt there will be huge, sweeping changes to anything in the game.

well your over complicating it honestly

you have in game, in the works and wish list, if its dead dont mean it cant be used later in an expansion or such it stays in wish list and the dev team ignores it until they want to go back to it and Ill put a little * next to it so everyone knows

it's not so much the complexity as having to go through all of those forum posts :)

it's really good that you're enthused enough by the game to go to all this trouble.

well its 30 pages in this general discussion thread, and 37 in the suggestions thread...the others are art and such, so im actually reworking this right now as "final" and will put stuff where it belongs as people say "hey stupid this is in the works or in game already"

or I find it in game myself

:edit:

that and the dev teams thread is up to:edit

After playing the demo I have 2 requests that I really want so far.

1. RESOLVED (For Now) Bigger Maps with more obstacles / cover. More objects to vault over. More variety in terrain elevation.

2. RESOLVED More Aliens, Please. - Before I say anything else, let's take a look at the TFTD alien number decision maker chart thingy for the second smallest craft, the Medium Scout. I am viewing this chart using an Editor for TFTD. Not sure if it's the offical chart, but I haven't edited anything yet on this install. So here's the chart it shows me. Thankfully I can edit these numbers as high as I can handle (hint...hint).

No need to make sly hints, HoboRed. You can edit the number of aliens in each ufo type. Take a look in /assets/ufocontents/

P.S. thanks for that info about upping the alien count that's EPIC!

Okay, still playing and doing missions all over the world, and the battlescape's are big enough so far.(for these small craft)

I am hoping that the Largest Craft/Terror Missions will have bigger battlescapes, but it's great with these little ships.

There is only 1 thing I've noticed so far. The Sniper Rilfe (Looks like a PSG1?) is the only weapon that is worth using at the moment. The other weapons have lower accuracy and damage, so they are not worth carrying, save the Rocket Launcher.

Each weapon should be effective at different distances. Shotgun and AR-15 should be more effective at closer range than Sniper Rifle.

I was reading about the Uzi Idea, but even if they dont implement an Uzi, maybe they can put some kind of close range accuracy bonus for the shotgun / assault rifles. Putting a governor on the weapon stat's might work. Give it a minimum and maximum effective range.

Categorize firearms in their own class system.

Baton (if added) - Melee Range

Shotguns and Sub-machine guns - Close Range.

Assault Rifles - Medium Range (good balance of close and far)

Precision Rifles - Obviously long range. (Maybe an upgrade for a variable scope for future weapons?)

Rocket Launcher - Medium/Far Range.

I would also like to request the ability to set grenade primer (Impact or Delay) so I can bounce off a wall around a corner, or have the grenade explode on impact. In real life, you cannot do this with most grenades(switch between impact or delay whenever you want) as most grenades are 7 seconds delay. So it could be a new kind of grenade by itself in the game, that can bounce/roll off a wall or closer to an object. Not far, just a little.

I understand there will be alien weapons to research, and I believe they should also be assigned to categories and given range bonus/penalty according to minimum and maximum effective range/accuracy. Another example, Alien Sniper Rifles can either be given a close range penalty, or a long range bonus.

Eh, the accuracy system isn't that balanced, meaning that right now, the LMG is actually the best weapon IMO.

Oh, and taking the snipers stats from EU eh?

Remember that this is a very basic game engine.

I can't say for certain but I doubt it can handle proper bounce/reflection from the in game props in the way that would be required for your grenade bouncing suggestion.

The game engine doesn't know, for example, the exact angle a prop is facing.

It only knows that an object is there, not what the image representing it looks like to the player.

I agree that a minimum effective range might be nice for the precision rifle.

All weapons already have a maximum effective range, after which damage falls off.

Turning that into an effective range with two values, outside of which accuracy suffers, would help to balance the weapons into their roles more effectively.
