A-ha, here's finally the super-secret project, Loonie kept talking about for so long :)

That may be interesting, at least the idea behind Genesis is more to my liking, than Alliance. So, maybe I consider joining in.

Well...check out the "What is XCGS?" page over there and find out if you could find a bit of time to try something like that out. I'll sure do my earnest to make it worth your while. :)

I have no doubt about that! :) I'm simply not sure, whether I could attend it on the regular basis in the nearest future, maybe a bit later, don't know.  :)

XCGS looks promising Loonie. I'll be keeping a close eye on it.

You know, when I started XCAS, I was thinking: "Hmmmm, Alliance or Genesis..." I chose XCAS for two reasons:

1: It's sim genre was different to any other X-Com sims I'd been in
2: XCAS sounded better :)

Well good luck to ya :)

That I have yet to sort out. However currently as attendances won't be big I assume it will be like I planned it to be. that is to say #XCGS. However I have to sort that thing out yet by registering. :)

Heh, well...that depends if you really feel like joining in Andy. This thing, I promise you, will not be as simple as XCAS. Though I will do my earnest to keep it as simple as it can possibly be. :)

Hey, I'd like to join, but I can't complete the Registration Form because my Email account is web-based so the submit button can't send the Email from the form.

Any chance I can submit it manually?

A minor but vital correction! If you do have web-based accounts you can send the application over my usual e-mail address too. Just look at the newly updated "join" page (which just so happens to be the third page of "What is XCGS?") :)

Sounds interesting, I've got free time on the weekends now that I'm at university, so count me in. Expect a submission shortly.

I've just done a couple of rough sketches for the sim.

1.) Some kind of craft, was just messing around trying to get back into drawing stuff.
2.)Snakeman-Chrysalid Hybrid. I remember the game was gonna have chrysallid hybrids but not sure if the sim will too.

I'll try and upload them when I can get hold of a scanner
