Please add this feature that if most of your troops dead/stunned, that the last few could still fly away alive (would be more realistic) and add support for doors (open/close). And the last thing, that aliens could kill the pilot (dropship would be taken over by aliens) and that one of the soldiers would be teached how to fly a dropship if the pilot is down.

Please reply if you can.

done for 2.4 (like it was in X-Com)

Done already.

WTF?

I meant that the pilot's room would be available and when aliens kill the pilot, the soldier could control the dropship back to base.

I think BTAxis would say: It doesn't add anything to the gameplay.

The pilot acts like a civ, but he spawns in the dropship.

Just a question, how do you suppose to teach a soldier with no previous piloting training how to fly VTOL dropship in five minutes? It is not a car, yanno?

I know, but instead of that, i have an idea that an auto-laser with only one shot guards the inside of the ship. One alien might get killed, but the pilot would still be vulnerable...

Or maybe you intend spawning a rescue mission if the pilot get killed? . . . Hmmm . . . But waht if it happens to the only squad you have and you can't muster other one for the mission? ???

Anyone considering other extraction routes?

Come on, there must be cars left over from the panic.  Some of them might even have keys.

good idea. They would be used as weapons and the last hope to return home

Ya.  Maybe throw in an increased chance of being destroyed when extracting with a car.  I mean, there's no way a car can dodge an RPG or particle beam.
