Two ideas

X-Var Silent Death: (10% chance)
- Sensor Jamming Acti (6 charges) - Unit is harder to hit this turn (4 gunnery levels).
- Unit can now equip any weapon type.
- Unit gains +1 cloaked speed.

X-Var Paladin: (15% chance)
- Eye for Eye Acti (3 charges) - All enemy units that attacked any friendly unit in sector take reflected damage equivalent to 30% of damage dealt.
- Aura Acti (5 charges) - All friendly units in square take 50% damage from energy weapons this turn.
- Armor decreased by 50%.
- Max speed decreased to 3.

Lasher Assault Vehicle

15% chance
Max speed increased by 1
Controlled speed increased by 2
Range increased by 3
When added with range upgrade mods, its range increased surpassed than 5
Damage increased by 5
Armor points increased by 4
Shield point increased by 2
Regenerates 3 armor points per turn
Deals more 25% damage when move in Controlled Speed

That's my idea about simple. Bit too much stats upgrade.

Savage Marauder

X variant (30%): Controlled speed is always 0, gains Camouflage Acti

Camouflage (4 charges): Unit displays as an ore deposit. It can still be targeted normally, but only if the enemy thinks to click it. (It doesn't get a red border unless other units are on the square). Moving or firing cancels this effect. Attempting to mine or transport the SM de-camos it and displays a message in the turn log to the effect of:
"That's no ore deposit... it's a battle meka!"

Frizz and i have been shooting emails back and fourth for about a week and a half now trying to determine the best way of handleing the calico.  Today i came home to two emails, the first:

From: Frizz
To: Lomaz    Sent: 7:05pm 1-11-12
Re: CC Simple X

I have an idea on how to wrap this up =)

_f

And then about an hour later:

From: Frizz
To: Lomaz    Sent: 7:55pm 1-11-12
Faction X-var
I'm taking a look at the unit and I'm concerned about the best miner in the game getting the best X-var.

I'll give an X-var to each miner:

Hedgehog: Laser Turret
Coluber: Ballistic Turret
Calico: Missile turret

Sound good?

_f

My only concern is the number of charges and length of time the turrets stay down for, but can't be that bad.  Feedback?

Chaos Cluster X-var
by: Dev Frizz on Wednesday the 11th of January 2012 at 04:00pm

Chaos Cluster requested a X-var for the Calico Utility Vehicle allowing it to deploy turrets. To balance this across the three dedicated miners in the game (Calico, Coluber and Hedgehog) the following tweaks have been made:

- Calico now has an X-var (25%) allowing it to deploy a Basic Missile Turret (25 turn cool-down, turret self-destructs after 15 turns)
- Coluber now has an X-var (60%) allowing it to deploy a Basic Ballistic Turret (20 turn cool-down, turret self-destructs after 20 turns)
- Coluber mining effiency increased to 30% (was 25%)
- Hedgehog now has an X-var (100%) allowing it to deploy a Basic Energy Turret (10 turn cool-down, turret self-destructs after 25 turns)
- Hedgehog mining effiency increased to 25% (was 15%)
- Deployed turrets from the Scout Sniper Meka now self-destruct after 25 turns
