The Author of the Halo books (Eric Nylund) Must have been an X-Com fan! :D
There is just so many simularities.. ^.^

Laser Sniper- Sniper :P
Marsec Mg-Smg
AutoCannon-Battle Rifle
Plasma pistol- Magnum (Yeah I know, but come on it pwns.)
Plasma Sword- Plasma Sword :D
Disruptor gun- Plasma Rifle
Devastator Cannon- Carbine
Pistol- Plasma Pistol (so weak.. d:)
Heavy Launcher- Rocket launcher
Mini Launcher- Brute Shot
??? -shotgun :(
There are also alot of empty weapons I could reconfigure into doing whatever I want to do, without much editing even needed such as the tracker gun.

Skeletoids- Buggers <
Anthropods- Jackels <
Spitter- Elites <
Ill probably have to adjust those three ^


Ai used by the units is Also a factor in this.

if possible I wish to attempt to cause the Popper Ai to be more commonly used so that rushing occurs. ^.^
Anthropod with Power Swords? Teehee? :D
How the Popper works, its Ai tells it to run up and use its weapon
Its weapon causes a large explosion and a suicide, Ive used it on my agents, not much fun.. the casualties are too high.

I am currently unaware as how to edit all of the images in the game, although I have toyed around with it and seen it done, XED doesnt seem to like me o.o'

Also if you see something I have missed, I couldnt figure what to change it to, just simply tell me here and Ill add it in.
Me: Magic Eight Ball, do alien beings inhabit the earth?

Eight Ball: For the love of God, would you stop jiggling me! How can I predict the future when I'm about to throw up?!

Is this really possible?

You know what would be great, if we could do up something like Half-Life with an XCOM3 mod, where we play individual agents fighting together against the aliens, all with X3 uniforms, settings, and equipment. Like an XCOM Apocalypse Counter-Strike. No ALIENS allowed! Yah!!!

I meant the Campaign Silly.

I was playing Single player last night, and if you Really wanted something like that, We could always force one of the programming staff into making a rough game for us :D

Just simply have the inventory screen on the side always open, and voila. its perfect for Real time.

Of course, We'd all lose to NKF since he uses SO many hot keys :X

Im sure Id come a close second or third ^.^'
