[SOLDIERS] Celebrate Diversity: more nationalities and names
« on: December 19, 2016, 06:56:02 pm »
WHAT DOES THIS MOD DO?
This mod adds new soldier nationalities: Argentinian, Brasilian, Canadian, Iranian, Israeli, Mongolian and Ukrainian. It also contains some new names for vanilla nations and some spelling corrections (this one is kinda experimental - I added some national characters to some names, so we'll see how it behaves on various machines).
Also, if you are using the OXCE+ version of OpenXCom, national flags will be placed next to the name:



WHY WAS IT MADE?
To expand upon the existing database of names. The vanilla selection is a bit random, since many important countries were missing, while some small countries were in. This mod aims to fill the gaps.

HOW DO I INSTALL THIS MOD?
- Open your "user" folder (normally Documents/MyGames/Openxcom, though it can be set up differently),
- Copy the entire Celebrate_Diversity folder to the "/mods" folder,
- Enable the mod from the Game Options menu.

ANY FUTURE PLANS?
I'll probably keep expanding the lists.

CHANGELOG:
1.1: Now with flags for OXCE+.
1.0: Initial release.

And if people are interested, I can make a version compatible with OXCE+ fork - it would also have national flags placed next to the name.

No need for 2 separate mods.
If you add flags, it will still work on vanilla, it won't crash or anything.

OK, I added the flags and updated the first post.

Yes, I made it for X-Com Files initially, this is basically a rip from the mod to make it standalone.

Is this mod compatible with Final Mod Pack and\or Area 51?

Yes, it should be compatible with pretty much anything. However, if a mod contains soldiers.rul (or the same data under some other file name), it will be overwritten by Celebrate Diversity (which is vanilla settings, only with more names, nationalities and flage).

Final Mod Pack already includes this mod, so it's unnecessary.

Thanks for your answer.
And your mod also seems to be included in "The X-Com Files" (this one is supposed to be based on Final Mod Pack).

Ummm... Yes, I know. :)

Seriously though, X-Com Files is where the mod started; the rest is just adaptation.
