I love what i have seen from you guys.. Everything I've ever imagined it would be.. but it looks like you now have competition.. if you go to www.avault.com they have just mentioned a new remake of xcom ufo defense. it is due about mid 2003.. they also have some good screenshots.. perhaps you guys could contact them and submit some of your stuff?? not sure but i thought you would like to know.. in the meantime keep up the great work...

:D

well you :) have to be more specific than that with the link. The site looks like a game news site and I didn't see anythign on the front page about a X-Com remake. :) not gonna go through the whole site.. no time... :) Anyway just from looking at the front page of the site looks to be about comercial games. Our remake is for the community for free. Anyway I'm not for sure but like I said the link you gave didn't help.

Ok ;) I've seen stuff about UFO: Aftermath before. Not sure if it is for me since it will be a realtime game instead of a turned based on. Also didn't like the pics of aliens that I saw. I think the lasthopemod people can make better models than what Aftermath has :) ... :) Like I said this remake is for the community for free. So we are not in competition and ours will take awhile to come out.

Plus, we are FREE. :alienlol: :alienlol: :alienlol:

Besides, we have something they don't. FLEXIBILITY, BABY.

After our divinely gifted programmers finish the engine of the game, we can pretty much do anything we want with our x-com. And, since we're open source, we get more feedback, and the ones giving feedback are the ones who make the game themselves.

(This does seem to aggravate my worries about copyright laws, though.)
Love is crap, made up by sick people to torture others.

Plus since Xenocide is opensource it can be continuously developed, even if Red Knight decided to quit the project the game wouldn't end, the community could continue it...

Hey... i bet right here, right now that Aftermath people had used the same texture we are using for their geoscape. But without Bump Mapping :P

Take a look the geoscape image in the Avaults article and the new screenshots...

It is turn based, and i am waiting for it... I looks really good and promising too...

Hey found something about companies enforcing copyright to OpenSource... look at http://www.scummvm.org/ and read the news... The company is Lucas Arts...
