    Extending the Transform to Marine ability

    Post by Vicboy

    Currently, the Thing in thing form would press Y to pick from a submenu of colors.

    Some have complained that this could be complicated since colors have a fixed position and hotkey in the submenu. Most would simply pick a random available color in there.

    To allow the player to easily select a variable color, I'm changing the initial Y submenu with four more options/buttons:

    Transform to Marine:


    • Previous: pick the color of your previous color as a Marine. [Y]
    • Selection: pick from the consumed Marines colors. [U]
    • Self: pick the color of yourself (when you spawned). [I]
    • Consumed: pick the color of a last consumed Marine (Undefined: Self) [O]


    This is a project that I'm determined to develop, hope to see this working soon.
