We all know the plot of Xcom. Aliens invade earth, earth fights back. Now what if the roles were reversed? Aliens are sitting up in Cydonia minding their own business, then the humans come along and attack. I have started making some ships based on this scenario. I have made an alien equivalent of the Skyranger, Lightning and Avenger. Look out for human UFOs later!

Hmm, if the roles are reversed, shouldn't X-Com ships look... UFOish and the Alien ships the opposite? right there all ships look like UFOs.

Hmm. There wasn't really anything I could do with the Alien tilesets, seeing as they're all smooth, defined shapes, no rocket boosters or wings or anything. besides, the lightning and to a certain extent the avenger were meant to look UFOish.
