XCOM Style snapmap dooable?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody seen an XCOM Style snap map? I did some searches and couldn't find anything. I would say for anybody willing to challenge themselves, this might be one of the ultimate one. And the challenge yourself even further trying to make it multiplayer even if just 2 players. I have seen a lot of RPG stuff and some different camera angles but nothing like that. Maybe with the new update it would be easier. I'm guessing it would take a master at logic, and the mapping would be the easy part. Once you had that down you could probably make a good a lot of maps .

well thankfully you have camera angles, and you can give AI's pathing and put AI on seperate teams.

i'd guess you could do it using AI as the moveable units, not sure you could give them too many special abilities or anything though, and the rng of the shots is probably nearly impossible to code, but maybe you could program AI to move during the animation, and being projectiles perhaps some attacks could be successfully dodged - therefore further range away could impact the attacks. How would the melee only characters fair? Or perhaps they would be unusable.

i might take a shot at it sometime.

There's no way you could ever pull that off, especially not with anywhere near the amount of depth that XCOM has. Even an extremely basic turn-based combat system would be ridiculously tough to pull off.

Best of luck! I know I can't pull it off.
