What's the best way to communicate an alien is stunned?

Recommended Posts

I honestly don't think that a collapsed alien turning blue communicates very well that I've stunned it. Sure, it communicates something. Perhaps it's out of breath. Or I've inflicted some kind of status change on it. But it doesn't really say (to me) that yup, I've stunned that dude. Perhaps an icon with a few animated stars would do the job better?

I think it should be the same as the original, i.e. you have to go over to the alien body and then check it in the inventory screen.

UFO did have an audio cue; stunned aliens just fell over, while killed aliens screamed.

Incidentally Gorzahg, that userpic is just freaky.

I think stunned aliens either need a marker (maybe some stars or ZZZzzz...) OR they need a separate sprite that looks like a sleeping alien (no blood.)

Of course, my girlfriend would tell you to look for a large number of empty beer bottles around the "body" and listen for the sound of snoring, but what does she know...;)
