Thread: UFO Aftermath Redux

  1. #1

    UFO Aftermath Redux

    My favorite X-Com remake was UFO Aftermath, except for its buggy game engine. I would suggest that you add the Transgenants (zombified animals and humans) from AM, as well as Robotic Invaders. Also, it would be a great idea to put real weapons into the game (M16s, MP5s, Glocks, etc.) like in Aftermath. I would like you to at least consider these ideas.

    P.S. This is the same name as my profile on ModDB

    i believe most of your suggestions have already been brought up and it was stated it was way to far into production to impliment them,
    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 would demand my money back if transgenants were introduced. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hated that in aftermath. I wanted to kill aliens not some poor mutaded sobs. Each time I saw those transgenants it felt like I was sitting there waiting for the actual game to begin.

    As for robots there's already a robot alien type included and the starting weapon are real weapons. at least the rifles.

    Real Weapons

    Well, the Transgenant thing isn't needed, but the game would be way better with real weapons. You don't have to make a new in-game model for new weapons, you can use the ones already given. For example, I equip my soldier with an AK-47. The picture of the AK is different in the inventory screen, but it uses the assault rifle MODEL in the Tactical game. That way, the only thing that has to be done is make 2D drawlings of the weapons.

    That would be doing a half-assed job. I disagree on this, we don't really need it. The rifle is fine as is, and there is no real benefit it having multiple types of assault rifles in-game. This can be modded at a later time for those that want a bunch of weapons that do the same functional thing but have slightly different stats, it's just unneeded for the base game considering how quickly the basic weapons will be replaced.

    In addition, Chris has already mentioned with the kickstarter attempt they will have a goal where they will a Soviet weapon pack which will be new models in-game.

    I'm sure "moar weapons" will be modded in soon enough.

    Real weapons

    As horrible as UFO aftermath was, they did one thing right. The weapons and weapon sounds. I loved how you would sneak up to the alien and empty a mp5 on it. That was the only reason I kept playing that game and used human weapons instead of the alien ones.

    Yes, there is a robotic race of aliens (and they look seriously cool at the higher ranks) and it'll be very easy to mod in the additional weapons, but we're not going to add more ballistic weapons in vanilla Xenonauts for ease of use.

    Can you possibly replicate the "Plan and Go" feature from UFO Aftermath? (Pause\Play buttons in Tactical Game instead of turns-makes for faster, more intense combat.) I can mod new weapons and possibly aliens with some artists, but I don't know about that. Also, You should have the number of enemies per level be increased or decreased per level, with the default amount being 10 hostile units.

    I have a Question:I have the Standard Order, but how do I show that on my profile?
