For the facilites how about including maps of both levels. I know when I finally saw what the lower level of the missile defenses looked like my base designs changed overnight.

And what about adding items that are not in the UFOpaedia, such as "Alien Habitat" and descriptions of the alien base modules (with maps of course).

How about larger pictures? I find it hard to see them as they're so small.The HWP's didn't have any at all, it would be nice if you get some for those too...
And a 'home' button somewhere, I seem to have missed it anyway ;)

btw you might want to state that the stats your site displays are from the xcomutil modded items, not the original ones (unless I missed that one too :rolleyes: )

all in all, pretty extensive UFOpaedia though, nice :)

I had considered that myself, so it will be added in time.

That one I will put in the "maybe" basket. If there's no information in the UFOpaedia about it, then its page would only contain pictures, which is a bit boring.

The pictures are all original size (IIRC) which is a conscious decision I made when I started the site, so I'm afraid what you see is what you get. I did have a to-do list that included unit GIFs, and therefore, HWP images, so it will come eventually.
As for a "home" button, I figured there wasn't any need to return to the index page as everything is accessible from the top menu. The index page only serves as a breief introduction really.

My stats are from the OSG and/or in-game UFOpaedia, and never having used xcomutil, I wouldn't know how they are different.

Description of alien habitat and alien base modules so they don't actually exist would of course not be cannon. This would be fluff added to the website. Nice thing that you have your very own forum here where people could submit and debate such fluff items, huh? :naughty:

Well, for one thing, pistols in the original UFO don't have autofire, that was a feature added with xcomutil, IIRC. Yet the pistols in your website do have an autofire option :huh?:
