  • Loads of new maps and new tiles for existing maps that are randomly generated

Roughness

A call for help:
The release of 2.3 is a milestone, but it is not the end of the road. The UFO:AI team has many plans for the game's development. New features appearing on the horizon for 2.4 include special mission objectives like rescuing downed pilots and expansions to key maps. UFO:AI needs contributors of all kinds. In particular, artists are needed to produce content for the expanded feature set, develop new battlegrounds and bring older content in line with the rendering engine's enhancements. If you'd like to help, join our forums and check out our contribution section.

Looks very awesome! Was a big fan of the X-Com stuff though it is very hard to play those games nowadays.

Speaking of compatiability, will this work on Win7 64 bit?

Oh wow. It's all so shiny now I don't want to be able to destroy it! No wait, I don't give a crap about the graphics. It really is a shame. The game is otherwise great, but I just can't really enjoy it for long with such static environments.

Looks like an awsome update, I was not a real big fan of the x-com series until I played your game. Glad to see you are still working on it.

Wow even on the easiest difficulty I am getting pwned. >.< Any advice? I think it would be funner if we could have some kind of first person aspect for battles but you have already integrated everything. Nice work though!
