Security Drone


Welcome to BYOBCOM 3, kamisoldiers.

Once again humanity is threatened by the vile aliens trying to seriously destroy all the chill places in the world and they call on BYOB to save everybody. But they're kind of assholes about it, and if we don't preform well, they'll gently caress our poo poo up and withdraw our funding. So I'm asking for volunteers: Who will fight for humanity's future? Using the long war mod.

If this is stepping on Funnypost's toes and he was planning another one soon I'll happily withdraw it. Just feel like playing the game and thought I might as well make it an interactive thing.



(Sorry to leave a bunch of people out, I just was running out of space and effort for the title image.)

I'll be doing an Iron Man game, so it's entirely possible that we will die and fail and no good stories will come from this, but we'll give it a shot, right?

Twitch stream when I'm playing will be at: http://www.twitch.tv/securitydrone/

Can I pick my class?

Okay. I'll probably pick the skills though, as individually going through each person every level up will probably be tiresome.

When do I get customized?

gently caress it, let's make it specialist.

Signups start now, so let me know your class, country, and any other relevant details as to what you want to do. Let's kill some aliens, they probably had it coming. Also, let me know if you consent to mechanical / genetic upgrades, thanks in advance.

Armor form:

There are 117 different armor decorations. Therefore I'm narrowing this to three options: 
1 - A bulky armor build of some kind. I'll just pick one at random from the selections.
2 - A slim, agile armor build, arms exposed. Kinda the default we got going on right now.
3 - Slim but with kneepads / pauldrons and that sort of thing. More coverage but not 'bulky'.

Basically, it's a tactical turn-based semi-rpg in the vein of XCOM: Ufo Defense. It got remade into a fancier and less sophisticated game a couple years back. There's a realtime element of strategy in dealing with a constantly increasing UFO invasion and dealing with economics/logistics, and then a tactical, turn-based element where you actually fight on the ground with a small handful of soldiers versus a ground force of aliens. The soldiers are kinda like RPG characters: They level up, get nicknames, get skills and abilities to help with the war. So you guys be the soldiers, and I'll command them. It's happened a couple times before, Funnypost did BYOBCOM for both this game and Xenonauts, a similar game which is also really good.

Okay we started but I accidentally picked the wrong continent to build a base on. So restarting rather than stick with a lame bonus. Our base will be in Asia, as I normally do Africa but I'm interested in the foundry bonuses help mid-game.

Yeah, it was a great thread. I just wanted to play the game and thought it would be fun, sorry if it's repetitive.

You're Ukrainian instead! Sorry, turns out you can't customize the nations like I thought I remembered being able to do. But you did get the only sniper so far:

Done! Unfortunately, you are from India. Here's Pig Slut Lisa. I'm sure the other soldiers are confused by the name as much as we are.



Getting the rest in...

Gross Dude is popular in the barracks. He's also our only heavy gunner, so I'm sure he'll be busy after he recovers getting blown to pieces on the start mission.


Finn looks a little anxious. I'm sure he'll do well in the future once I get some better armor on these guys.


Godspeed John Glenn looks like the kind of guy you'd only see at 3:00 AM at a truck stop.


The mysterious Bureau Watts hails from Korea.

GODSPEED JOHN GLENN

This is true and correct

make me a pilot

I'll look into a way to change the pilot names, it's not letting me customize it for now. You want just a normal soldier spot?

Sleepy Owl, Colonel Wood, Looke, Iamhe, Thewizardofshoe, Bukowski, zombie303, Funnypost Collabo, The Green Calx. Colonel Wood is from Israel! Who would have guessed.

I'm from Russia, just like in real life, and I'm sexy, again, mirroring my reality.

And finally, Anilam:



Air Julio, until I figure out how to rename the fighters:


Illegal Carrot, until I can build a tank and put his brain in it: (Maybe a good candidate for a mekwarrior dude later?)

Alright, that settled, time to get on with it. We're building two fusion generators, and researching Alien Remains from the start mission. Where will be deploy next? Stream's back up, by the way, had it off for the boring screenshotting.

We shot down a small alien craft! Dispatching the team immediately. Unfortunately all our dudes from the tutorial mission are still pretty injured, so it's a team of all fresh folk.

PFC Iamhe
PFC Sleepy Owl
PFC Gross Dude
PFC Pig Slut Lisa
PFC Looke
PFC thewizardofshoe

Let's hope for the best. Skyranger taking off.

Probably should just make everyone's names their lastname so they show up better. I'll handle that after this mission.

ADBOT LOVES YOU

i am he


I'm going to do well, I know it.
