I think morale should be affected by more than deaths and MC-panic.

My suggestions are being shot at, being wounded (how big was this in the original? never noticed any difference), spotting terror units (all aliens?), civilians getting killed, battle in nighttime and straying far from others (fighting alone).

All the penalties would be larger with rookies and depend on bravery. These would be fairly small compared to friendlies getting wasted or direct MC but might make a difference still...

Opinions?

Getting wounded does lower your morale. That's what painkillers are for.

I think apoc had some of these things included. I remember having 10 guys going full auto on an anthropod. None of the shots hit, but the alien instantly wet his pants. :) It'd be nice to do that in Xenocide.

My first order of business: Homeless people make cheap rookies, and are great at opening UFO doors. Heck, they're so cheap, I'm going to replace all personel with them!
Secondly: This organisation takes too much money to run. Weapon shipments will come from Siberia from now on. Costly maintenance is to be cut on all facilities. That includes venting.
Thirdly: We have a new colonel. His name is Facehugger, he loves aliens, and I want you all to treat him with respect.
Lastly: I'll be in my condo on an undisclosed island, if you need me. Good day.
