UFOs - Have all Original UFOs, making some new ones
Alien weaponry - have all original, making new ones
Alien game system for online play - 30% complete
Aliens - Have all originals and some new ones
Alien Equipment - None
Alien classes - None

Xcom and Human organization things
Crafts - Have most of em
Weaponry - All originals, making a special weapons system
Game system for online play - 10% complete
Humans - They're all the same :P
Equipment - Armors (Need new ones) need all
X-Com/Other classes - None

Game system itself
Battle - It's pretty simple, standard d20 except for some parts
The way it'll be played - Got it all in my head
How it'll work out in the end - I have NO clue....


Well, if anyone has any ideas, tell me now ^_^

Classes;

Sniper (Rifle/Sniper Rifle)
Heavy Weapons (Autocannon, Heavy cannon, Missile launcher, etc.)
Grenadier (High explosives, thrown)
Medic (Medikit)
Psionic (special class, unlocked later when Psi is found and developed)
Demolitions Specialist (High explosives, placed)
Grunt (Rifle, thrown weapons)
Traitor (Alien on Human side, think Mentor from Freedom Force)
Brainwashed (Human on Alien side, brainwashed human flunky for the aliens)

That's all I can think of so far. :P

Human Armours;
Kevlar Jacket (available from start, cheap but not very good, only protects chest)
Tac-Arm Mk4 (available from start, more expensive but tougher, covers all of soldier)
Prototype M27 Powerarmour (available some while after start, very expensive, very tough, increases Strength, decreases agility/speed)
Experimental Jetpack (available shortly after start, expensive, very little armour. Chest protection. Will explode if damaged. Flying capability)
Alloyed Personal Armour (Alien Alloys research. Cheap and tough, light too. No head protection)
Prototype AT1 Powerarmour (Elerium & AA research, expensive, tough. Slows a little, increases strength a bit)
Prototype ATF2 Powerarmour (Elerium, AA & A. Prop. research, expensive, tough, slows a little, increases strength a bit, flying capability)

Alien Armours;
Hardened Keratin (available from start, slows quite a bit, but very good vs. bullets, crap vs. lasers)
Reflective Keratin (available shortly after humans get lasers, slows a bit, v. good vs lasers, crap vs. bullets)
Alien Alloy Plating (available some time after start, good vs. lasers and bullets)
Elerium Enhanced Armour (available with research, adds strength, reduces speed)
Flight-Capable E.E. Armour (available with research. E.E Armour, with flight)

Note; Keratin is basically your skin, nails, hair. As aliens don't wear armour, it makes sense that instead they could upgrade their biological "systems". :)

Oh, and how is it being played? Are the players commanders, directing their forces, or are the players actual soldiers?

EDIT: Added you to my MSN list, Bass. :P

Do you know how to program copybass? Or does this take programming? I don't quite understand what exactly is going on.

d20 is a roleplaying system (pen and paper) that can be adapted to just about anything. So basically, Bass is busy adapting the d20 system to work for X-COM. And then making an RPG.

So he's writing it out first, right? Hmm...I have done that many times and never finished my roleplaying games...That reminds me that I need to finish one of my RPG's.

He has the story, he's just adapting the game "engine" to make an X-COM d20 possible.

Ok, I found a computer... And I'm glad you asked about the way it'll work online, Exo. I'm going to have that I make 20 people into Commanders (20 first members) and they can be either Aliens or Humans. After that, all new members are lv. 2 Civillian humans living in possible Terror Sites, able to be hired by any Organization owned by a commander, or if they make $500,000 off their 1d4x$1000 a day they may make their own. This makes it that Commanders can have soldiers with REAL personalities that can either choose to take their orders or do whatever they want.

If there are no PCs (Player Characters) to hire, however, they may choose to hire a lv. 1 NPC (Non-Player Character) that will follow their orders indefinately. A commander can only have 7 NPCs at a time, and can only hire one if there are no Civillians who are willing to join them.

This sounds like fun! :) I already have the fan-made Fallout D20, and it is great!

If you need the X-Com history, you can find it here.

Copybass, are you going to tell where your forums is? You can't get suggestions by not telling everybody where the forums is. :)

Are you literally using pencil and paper only? I don't understand how you are doing this copybass. Sounds neat, but I'm a litttle lost still.
