ufopaedia.fourgen.co.uk

Enjoy :)

Nice :)

Though I can't shake the feeling I've seen that on the net before... :unsure:

:idea: Oh yeah, that's right, it's right here: http://www.xcomufo.c...edia/index.html ^_^

Still, good work, now we can still check it if this site goes temprary off-line again ;)

hmmm....you missed the screen with all the items under the category (where all objects are listed).

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Each category has a submenu, like when you choose XCom craft & weapons there's a second screen listing every item in that category, but your uploaded ufopaedia skips that screen and goes straight to the first item, I guess that's what he means

OK, version 2 is online now, working submenus with all of the UFOpaedia items listed :) And the OK button does something different ;)

Wow. That's a pretty amazing UFOpedia you've got there. :master:
Posted Image Haha! I'm now the Supreme Commander of X-COM. Time to kiss Earth goodbye.

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.

Good job, sionic. It looks much better than most of the hacked and chopped-to-pieces ufopaedias out there. Did you use hotspots for the links?

Yep, I used imagemaps and hotspots for all of the clicks :)

Was thinking of doing a USOpaedia too :)
