    More UFO types

    Hi,

    Well, from what I can tell, it seems that the types of UFO's are limited to:

    Very Small
    Small
    Medium
    Large
    Very Large

    Only 5??? Well, 4, because the fighters do not generate crash sites...

    They should include more UFO's IMO. I remember the earlier UFO's on X-Com were those really small single seat scouts, usually with 1 sectoid on them. There were UFO's with 2 floors as well (the medium ones).

    The items on the list you compiled do not refer to the types of alien craft but rather their size. For instance, the public demo alone features two distinct classes of small UFOs, namely the Light Scout and the Scout proper.

    Where did you find reference to large and very large? I'm still hopeing for "enormus", "colossal", "the state of texas" and "sun eclipsing" UFOs will show up.

    Hicks, did you base your size types off the AM xml files?

    Those are the exact same sizes X-COM had as well. And yet it had more than 5 UFOs (8).

    You're absolutely right, I did not pay attention to this... So, we gonna have different types of UFO's for each class, that's good!

    No, it was just logical inference.

    and "sun eclipsing" UFOs will show up.
    ...And the Dyson sphere descends over Sol. Mankind collectively wets itself.

    As for craft types, Xenonauts does fine form what I remember nosing at. Types, not sizes.

    Hicks, have a nose around the AM_* xml files. You'll get an idea of some of the range of alien ships you'll face.

    If you look in the source files installed, in
    \xenonauts\assets\aircraft\UFOs,
    you will find references to some ufos I have not (yet) fought in air combat mode.

    I do not know if in the end they will be in the game. However I do not want to spoil the surprise, so I will not post the craft names here...
