    There's a difference between the game itself and tools like the level editor being OSS.

    I'll see if I have time to give 1.08 a test once it's up. Glad to be of some assistance again. :)

    Glad that worked out for you thither - I didn't have any extra bugs back when, but things have changed since. Hopefully we're not in a situation where 1.2.3 fixes fonts but there's some other bug...

    Congratulations, and I'm really happy to see it's doing well commercially. If for no other reason than bugfixes in the future. :)

    I think having a simple "bloody" vs "non-bloody" fallen sprite would be ideal in terms of ease of execution but adding in visual indicators.

    Having to hover over a body and check its tooltip is a...

    The graphics are gorgeous, and I like the music and most of the writing... some of the puzzles / options based on character building aren't quite as interesting as I'd like, but aside from the crap...

    It's certainly far better than Shadowrun Returns... been playing that a bit recently due to a steam sale and the AI is pretty random.

    The new mechanics by themselves were enjoyable, but they didn't really fit into a coherent whole... the overlap of class skills, gene mods, and new items got a little messy at times. It would have...

    Very nice!

    I sort of remember there being some friction with zzz's (your?) ideas, but I always enjoyed the seeing the work you came up with. :)

    You also might be better off trying a save from the geoscape than from ground combat (less variables that might be changed) - but since the game is in development there isn't a real upgrade path.

    I like that idea for base defense. You could even bump up the number of aliens or something to counteract the advantage of having no fog of war - it'd also make it feel a bit more unique. An...

    The stealth ones would only be larger UFOs - say a stealth landing ship that only decloaks when grounded, so some of them will get by until you tech up, but it's not like zomg you can't intercept...

    Having fallen soldier names scroll in credits seems like it might be able to make it - having a separate room / UI etc for memorials seems a bit much.

    True on the countdown afaik if it's a proper "pre-order".

    I suppose for early access you could still put it at $25 and have a 20% discount though. :)

    I suppose one way of doing it would be to raise the price on steam to $25, then offer a 20% pre-order discount.
