Battlescape Base Defenses.

You might wonder about how this would be handled, and I think I have an idea about it. You can use a "underlay" which is a "lower" set of structures built beneath existing structures, like hangers. You simply build a "lower layer" item like a regular base building. Each such structure covers one building square.
Each defensive block would have a certain number of defenses, depending on the area the defenses are built in.
Another idea is a new, regular building: the barracks. The barracks would automatically create basic soldiers that can only be used for base defense. Each barracks might create 10, or so guards.(Refer to Jagged Alliance 2 for a somewhat better idea of what I am thinking here.)
The aliens can also have similer defensive propertys for their bases, too.

There was also thought about having the base defense missions two-stagers, where the aliens try to rush to the elevator while your troops try to hold them back, and if you did not have troops inside the base if one got trough...
But I don't know if there's another thread about it, for now I'll leave this one, but if I find another with the same topic I'll merge them.
