  1. If tanks could take more shots they would be overpowered, they are meant to take 1-2 more hits than soldiers and that´s about it
  2. Unless I am wrong, a new base actually costs $500K and not 1 million $
  3. Despite the engine limitations, I think the Xenonauts team has created an extraordinary game, can´t wait for the final patch!
  4. I had a weird bug with an alien close to a building, I was trying to target the alien and I was missing all the shots because the crosshair was greyed out, as soon as I loaded up the savefile again it fixed my issue and the crosshair aiming thing started working as intended.
  5. Congratulations on the 5000 posts Chris as well!
  6. Ya I remember the green plasma shots from the original xcom, But I guess The bright blue also works to identify plasma, because of the plasma clip and the plasma shot from xenonauts. Also remember to check the extras on the front page, they include shields with triangles representing the current pistol you are using with each respective color.
  7. the main issue is when most ufos are actually no flyingt next to the location of your base.
  8. That´s exactly what I am planning on doing my second run if there is a terror mission.
  9. Check this out then: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7saixu8o5sqif9g/Extras.zip
  10. https://www.dropbox.com/s/56dq86bpbmgj1t3/Steel%20Icons.rar https://www.dropbox.com/s/31ni1gtpq8d12f7/Colored%20Icons.zip
  11. I will have a look at the projectile colors for the plasma, and I will make the mag a bit darker then. The main reason was, you can hardly notice the color with the actual background on the mag weapons, if I make the blue color any darker.
  12. Links are here https://www.dropbox.com/s/56dq86bpbmgj1t3/Steel%20Icons.rar https://www.dropbox.com/s/wkfyxpom9xmdsdv/Colored%20Backgrounds.zip
  13. I would reduce the weight of the shield by about 10-15%, so at least earlier on I can actually bring 1 or 2 clips for my pistol, this would be sufficient in my opinion.
  14. Specially punishing for me since I was playing on insane with iron man mode, so basically I lost 7 out of my 8 operatives in the first mission, managed to retreat my rocket launcher guy, killed 8 aliens, but it clearly wasnt enough, there were like 8-9 approaching my ship. Next time that I start this game again, I will make sure to bring 3 rocket launchers, the bastards like to make groups of 3-4 all the time, so I am just going to blow them to pieces.
  15. So basically after 6 days I get another terror mission, I am not sure if this is working as intended.
  16. Voila: https://www.dropbox.com/s/56dq86bpbmgj1t3/Steel%20Icons.rar Colored: https://www.dropbox.com/s/poqx4c96cf7g2kk/Colored%20Icons.rar
  17. Also I have been experimenting doing the laser icons, by adding red triangles to 2 of the corners you will be able to distinguish lasers from standard equipment. Here is an example. This is what the whole set looks like so far: http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/6969/7i3v.png Colored Version: http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/9821/bbd.png Also does anyone know how to remove thumbnails if I have to, because I have 3 at the moment in the first post, but I want to remove them. Well apparently I click the manage attachment button and it just tells me I dont have permission.
  18. Here ya go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wkfyxpom9xmdsdv/Colored%20Backgrounds.zip The png file is called unused, should be inside the zip file. Also my plan is to do all weapons with grey backgrounds, but I will have the colored backgrounds to people who want some distinction between each type of weapon, also will try and do a different color for the extra icons.
  19. I have done something completely different than you suggested, but I think I achieved perfect results: http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/1401/egnb.png
  20. When you mean tab, do you mean the little triangle?, or just part of the bottom left area?
