Thread: Customizing Soldier Backgrounds?

    Customizing Soldier Backgrounds?

    Not sure if this has been suggested before but since just recently checking out (and loving) this project, I thought it would be really cool if you could either create or edit a Soldier's background. I love the random element and I know that's what your team is going for, but I'm one of those X-Com players that love naming their Soldier's after people they know and getting invested as they take a shot or do something heroic.

    So, I think the Soldier backgrounds are a brilliant idea and I love it, I'm just wondering if it would possible to let you "fill in the blanks" so to speak on Soldiers. Especially choosing their nationality would be really cool. The extra/step idea on this would be to "recruit" soldiers and let you pick and choose how you wanted them, superficially of course, not so much stats.

    great idea NullOrdo.
    Preordering Xenonauts is like buying a puppy instead of a 4 year old dog.
    And a big THANX to Anotherdevil for his work in mods, my promotion, and my new look!

    I have checked out the Mods section and while there are some cool background adding mods, I didn't see anything that related to changing/customizing your soldier's backgrounds.

    well the same way you add background you can change that so that different backgrounds come up.

    If you want to change the background in game... well other than that not really making sense (people can't change their past) that's something those guys might be able to help you out with, or PM chris =]

    Hmmm. This would be possible but veeeery low down on our list of priorities. I think it's unlikely it'll make it into the final game because of that.

    I think it would be Cool / Funny to see some of the Combat Histories in the soldiers profiles read Classified instead of Vietnam, Afghanistan, Etc. While I like that Flavor, I think seeing Classified as well would be fun.
