Xenocide, IS a remake of X-com EU/UD. We are going to make the game as X-com, with better grafics, and such. The thing that i think you see, is that we are making stuff up that is not in the game, and are editing stuff. An eksample is the new cryssaloid designed. It is still a cryssaloid, no other alien, and it can stilll do the cryssaloid zombie trick.
Another thing is that alot of people have been *ehem*, angry, at some features in X-com: EU/UD, like all the errors, and that the game gets too easy after a certain time. THIS is what we are editing, but nothing dramatically (not for 1.0 that is).
All the ideas in the labaratory are certainy not going though, by the single reason that it ruins the balance between aliens, and humans. If someone screems on the lab that it would be cool to bomb aliens before you land in the skyranger, what is fun then? Nukeing Mars? nah. Giving humans billions of new weapons? If the aliens are longer in the technology development then us, then why should they only have 3 plasma weapons, 2 additional weapons, and a total of 2 misc items (excluded extra ammo)??????
the truth about scientology
Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Once there's a working game, many of the ideas developed here will be considered, but there will be lots of discussion to balance those ideas with each other and the base game. Like Mikker said, it's easy to toss in something that can be exploited and make the game boring. So before the team spends many hours implementing new ideas, there will lots of talk to make sure it will work properly. Then play testing and balancing, etc.
