How about an epic last battle?
« on: April 19, 2014, 01:16:06 am »
Just finished 2.5 on normal. It felt pretty good and totally bug-free, except for alt-tabbing after a couple of minutes of AFK, which is annoying.

But the ending felt very anticlimactic. Victory by completing a research project and then clicking two times? Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

Why not launch not the payload from the orbital cannon, but a capsule with elite PHALANX operatives? Say Carrier UFO has great anti-missile defense, but a nimble 12-person dropship could say drive itself right into the bridge. Would make it feel more like original X-COM or the following remake last battle, which would be nice. All it would require is a bit of writing and one map design.

What say you, gentlemen?

As you can see in our wiki, this is already planned.
We just need the people to actually do it. How about you ?
C'mon, it is just a bit of writing and one map design...

Btw we already have code to *chain* maps together. That is, one mission with two or more maps.

I'd do it, but my map design experience is nil :(
