Im sure this has been brought up before. but incase it hasnt, it would be cool if there were girl civillians, children and such. also it would be a cool feature if you could somehow give a civillian a gun. here ofcourse there would be some rules. one civillians are easy to minipulate, so a sectoid or eth. could easily manipulate it and turn it against xcom. i dont see eths much on terror, but sectoids usually come. also, their aim and bravery would be very bad. and they wouldnt be under your command. or would they? , nah. i think its that they do what they usually do except they have a gun in their hands. and they go berserk a lot. but then this would bring up can they reload. and can the children have them? oh, and also, i was just on a terror mission last night (just go this game back, again) and i was being a little pussy and i had 3 of my soldiers hide in a second level bedroom, and there was a civillian there. one, they dont seem to acknowledge your presence, like they still run around and stuff, i think they should settle down once your there. i love hiding snipers in rooms and then shooting on unsespecting sectoids. week little things. oh, and sorry i am like taking up a whole bunch of space and writting every idea that comes into my head. i should wait and put it all in one post, but they keep coming in and im afraid ill forget and im to lazy to write down.

The civilians and that they should have guns have and are being discussed. Good point with aim and bravery.

Well, there were male & female civilians in the originals. I remember being amazed at how many girls wear bikinis at midnight, no matter how close to the beach their condo is.

Kids with guns? Sounds like Palestine. Good thing the peace talks are starting up again. I have to say, though, it just doesn't sound realistic.

No, the...the little one with the light...yeah, that was it...maybe you'd be better suited for a tazer."

/me laughs. yeah, kinda stole the idea from tactical ops ( i believe its a mod for,, uhhh. unreal tournoment?) anyway, when rescueing the hostages you could throw down your secondary fire arm and they would pick it up. nice description on the gun thing, i could really envision what was happening

I would just like to see a way to get a civilian and control them. Like after standing adjacent you can move them. They would take away the rediculous AI they had in the origial and simulate you telling them where to ge for safety.

:hammer:

C'mon, the civies won't listen to you if you're wearing power armor, they'll be even more scared to death... :huh:
Just make them panick anf run away screaming if they see an alien or XCOM soldier wearing power armor, and that'll be fine... :D

XCOM could also temporary recruit Civilians in the area.

a year old revive of a year old revived thread? Nice job there guys.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Why not?
Old ideas can be good ideas.
And reviving is better than silence :)
