IŽd like to see some more medals awarded/statistics kept. Like a purple heart awarded to a soldier wounded in battle. Special medals could be also for heroics like killing more than 5 in same mission, more than 10, for healing more than 10 fatal wounds, more than 50 fatals healed, winning a mission outnumbered, outnumbered by 2x, winning a base raid, capturing high ranking aliens, controlling many aliens... You figure out more.

And statistics. Who killed aliens, how many, which type, how many captured (Stunned by soldier and captured then.), how many missions served...

Nothing too big, just a picture of shiny medas and some numbers at soldier screen. (Somewhere a note what each medal means.)

It would have no gameplay effect, but it would be nice to see. Apoc had some of these, but they were given just for killing a certain number.

How is, like the idea? or :stupid:

I remember we are planning on doing something like this. Either pre V1, or really really soon after V1 is released.
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

Ooohhh, I love the idea of medals!!
Quite cool actually, especially the Purple Hearts!! :D
(and the reverse too, how about a record of how many times a guy panicked... It's accuracy record, etc. )

That's a great idea, putting individual decorations in the game. Not only does that give the soldiers that little bit more depth, but it would be neat to see that one of your favorite troops came back from a particularly dangerous mission with a shiny new commendation.

The main document is here. There's artwork around somewhere as well, but I don't remember where offhand.

[edit] Found a rought draft of the trophy box and a list of the actual ribbons as well.

I didn't get a chance to actually see those yet, but I gotta say that those are frickin' awesome. The look and feel of the draft isn't at all cheesy (as in a couple games with such "awards"--coughcoughsyphonfiltercough).
