They may also have one member per squad that uses a flamethrower:

Or maybe as a special ability... Thoughts?

Well, it wouldn't be insta-kill like the flamer boba fett uses...that's op. But even then, one member per squad is a good number.

Only one member per squad would be better due to balance issues, they would massacre infantry too easily, but that single oppresor trooper should have a longer recharge firing time then the other troopers in the squad.

Sounds good, what about giving one a flamethrower and another member one of these?
Starwars.wikia.com

Wookiepedia says Storm Commandos used them and it would give the squad something for engaging vehicles as well, which would make sense, because they are supposed to operate without support for longer periods of time.
Btw, how many Commandos are you planning to put in each squad?

Gotta admit with Sereguth, the back should be a little rounder if possible, but were not goign to watch a soldier's bum during gameplay are we now? So this is just awsome work as always.

Thanks all. In regards to his ***... Remember that one infantry unit is and must be relatively low-poly or even a good computer would explode... That said, the fewer polys used in a unit, the more "blocky" the joints are going to be, in proportion to the angle they're bent at. The back view is of the commando in a crouched position and hence, the left thigh is at almost a 90┬░ angle. Therefore, the joint to which the thigh connects is crunched into that hard-edged, flat *** you all see. There are ways to fix this in 3D animation but none of those methods are usable in this video game.

Well done, the_Farseer! Suggested special abilities:

Switch from a sniper rifle to a heavy repeating rifle or disruptor
Stealth
Switch from firearm to melee weapon for close combat

the_Farseer Oct 16 2013, 11:23am replied:

Storm Commandos never used melee weapons, that I know of.

Scout Troopers of the regular, white variety are already armed with snipers so it wouldn't make sense to give them to this unit as well.

Wookiepedia actually says that the Storm Commandos just favored the E-11 like the regular Stormtrooper ranks... Although, an SMG or repeater-type weapon sounds better to me.

Yes to stealth.

Glad you like the unit :)

I wanted to tell you that your idea of the game is great and graphics designs too. Thanks to your mod i com back playing in the ST-EAw agne:)
The idea of doing a small Infantry Division in which every soldier has a different armament is great! Or are you thinking that each of the soldiers can attack different targets at the same time.
For example, a soldier with rocket launcher shoots at tank a flame thrower attak more enemy groups and soldier with blaster fire to a smoller number of enemy??

Played a few mods with ground fighters. Didn't care much for them.

I imagine they'd need to be heavily balanced to work well at all.

Description

Storm Commandos are typically armed with SMG-type weapons...I will add that later. For now, just a retexture and a few tweaked animations.
