Title: [GLOBE] Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on August 29, 2013, 09:42:33 pm
This mod adds several dozen new nations to the game; along with many more cities.

Basic formula I used to determine funding pricing was:

All nations contribute a flat fee of 75 to the XCOM project.

Then they're assessed a basic GDP contribution fee of their GDP divided by 125. E.g. a nation with $7,751 per capita GDP would have to pay 62.01.

Next up is population contribution fee; population divided by 5,000,000. A nation with 1.2 billion people would then have to pay approximately 240.

Finally there's special fees:

NUCLEAR POWER: 135 (Known nuclear powers like US, UK, France, Israel, India, Pakistan, China, Russia)

SHARED NUCLEAR POWER: 62.5 (People who share nukes under dual NATO control -- Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Turkey)

It's important to note that 1999 was a long time ago regarding economic growth -- Russia was still in the dumps following the breakup of the USSR; along with many former WARPAC states -- Germany was still swallowing up Eastern Germany, etc.

*******************************************************

First of all, I'd like to thank SupSuper for adding LAT/LONG coordinates when you click the cursor in debug mode; that has made adding nations to OXCOM a lot easier.

My current plan is to fill in a lot of the world, as shown by the map, along with doing minor globe nation defended area fixes.

Attached is my current ruleset as of 25 SEP 2013. (Depreciated, go down a few posts for latest version)

Progress on it is:

JAPAN:
Sakhalin Island added to territory

USA:
Hawaii added
Alaska added

Russia
Siberia has been extended a bit towards the pole.
Sakhalin Island added to territory (RUS/JAPAN claim it in real life)

Australia:
Tasmania added to territory
New Zealand added to territory (ANZUS Pact)

Canada:
Territory has been extended a bit towards the pole.

MEXICO has been added.
PHILIPPINES has been added
TAIWAN has been added
--Tapei has been added as a city.
KOREA has been added.
PAKISTAN has been added
IRAN has been added
SAUDI ARABIA has been added
--Riyadh has been added as a city.

Bump.

EDIT. It slots in nicely, and there are only two graphical glitches when playing with more nations than stock in OXCOM:

Finance Screen -- there's already mouse scroll support built in; it works nicely; but the scroll up/down buttons are almost off the edge of the screen.

Graph Screen(s) -- It overruns the graph screen; may I suggest a MORE button be added if more than x countries are found in the ruleset(s)?

End of Month Report screen - No problems so far.

Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on September 26, 2013, 06:51:30 pm
Thanks.

Currently all the funding is pretty much placeholders -- simple cut and pastes; I'm getting the locations correct first, as well as adding a few extra cities where I can -- for example, is it really a TERROR SITE if the aliens land in Detroit?  :P
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on September 26, 2013, 08:49:47 pm
Moving along now; I'm going to implement pretty much all the African states as the AFRICAN UNION -- it's a bit of a anachronism, as the African Union wasn't created until 2001/2002; out of the Organization of African Unity (OAU); but we can squint and pretend that the Aliens landing forced this to happen earlier than normal.

This also will help in making Africa a bit more useful to players, in that there'll be enough countries banding together to offer enough of a paycheck to XCOM to make it worthwhile -- I think this is why they redesigned the countries in TFTD so much; to make it worthwhile for someone to set up shop in Africa or South America.

Here's the 2:13PM EASTERN 26 SEP 2013 version -- African Union is still very much raw.

I've made changes to the Russian, Canadian etc area boxes that if you want them to show up properly, you need to open up Xcom1Ruleset.rul and comment out the COUNTRIES block.

@MKSheppard

this mod look awesome, once all the bugs are ironed out somewhat, it would be great to have this in the stock build as a advanced option, but even if not, i will probably still play with this. i love mods that add more content to the game.

are the new nations going to get new terror maps and or map chunks for the non-terror maps? that would make this sooo cool :)

if compleat, i wonder if it could be given a weight to the middle eastern area of the map so we don't end up with the terrain in america or other such area

You could kind of make a middle eastern town by reusing some of the "Desert" sprites, and then changing the colors of the stock houses to be more tan.

I like this! It gives you the feeling of a more populated planet - something alive and worth fighting for.


I think it's time for a ruleset that allows crashed UFOs in city battlescapes :) perhaps with an x% chance if the crash happens within y kilometers (or miles) of a major city? this would simulate areas of dense population... I wonder if that would be possible... SupSuper? Anybody? is it possible to determine something like "distance to nearest city" on the geoscape? and if so, is it possible to make the game choose an "urban" terrain with a certain chance?

This would be awesome if we had a few different types of cities to use, right now i can only think of 3 different varieties, i love to do another one, but i cant do it all :P.

Hi, MK - Great work
I've done before some diggings myself thanks to UFOpaedia .... errrr, WIKIpedia ;D ;D, and, here you are, if you wish to add them (some of them are already in) - took them from queries like top x cities in y (please note all coordinates are somehow rounded as what is found - didn't check the latests versions though - in the original ruleset as fractions of x/8)
Sadly, didn't find anything in Antarctica.  :-\...

Oh man...you could actually do that pretty easily in XCOM with a custom tileset called ARCTICSTATION using some of the existing arctic tileset; combined with one or two new baseblocks. Best part is... it'd be virtually a 1:1 representation of VOSTOK.  8)

Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod

will update, no problems so far, but i wonder, do you plan on adding funding for the nations that you add? (not a whole lot, but something to show the player that they are in the game) also,do the new nations get graphs with this mod? if there are supposed to, they don't for me
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod

You should start a new game to see them. As SupSuper stated, there is some work to be done for the graphs to be fully functional.

At some point, I'll get around to doing funding for the nations in the game. The problem is finding a proper metric that balances the game, to avoid the fact that the US defense budget is 40%+ of world defense spending.

i have no problem with a higher funding amount, as it also means higher risk that the nation sign a pact with the alien foe, but until now i had not realised that america was funding 40% ...
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on October 09, 2013, 08:54:44 am
Some more cities, some more improvements, more nations join the fun:

Belgium
Netherlands
Ireland
Iraq
Syria
Israel
Baltic Confederation (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia)
Belarus

Antarctic bases have been commented out, since we don't have any custom terror mission maps or code yet for them.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you want to get the full use of this ruleset, you need to enter your Xcom1Ruleset.rul and make it so that the:

countries:

Mfive, no no let me explain it better:

In XCOMworld; the US gives about 14% of all total funding generally at the start of the game in 1999, with Japan taking up slack at second place with 9.56% of total funding.

In real life 1999:

GDP:
US is 39% of world GDP
Japan is 19.22% of world GDP

Military Spending:
US is 48.5% of world spending
Japan is 7.17% of world spending

Clearly, the US has been "defanged" to prvent players from just setting up shop in the US and always calling it a day in the name of game balance.

I'm not sure how this'll balance (eventually)

But am thinking, myself, of doing some wikipedia to get more or less accurate ratios among nations. And -- hope this is helpful -- try setting the caps at a simple 10x initial funding...
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on October 11, 2013, 04:59:28 am
I have a problem -- I think I broke the funding model  :P

The RUL file says:

Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_GERMANY
    fundingBase: 160
    fundingCap: 2400

  - type: STR_ITALY
    fundingBase: 160
    fundingCap: 2400

I think it's because a lot of things were predicated around the ~6M starting funding and 16~ nations of stock XCOM; and with 50+ nations now funding the place; things are getting all negative-y.
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on October 11, 2013, 05:03:08 am

I'm going at a simplistic ratio of:

4% of XCOM Funding for countries which are nuclear powers.
2% of XCOM funding for countries which are NATO.

Well, IMO there should be a ruleset facility added to the game in order to allow erasing by complementary ruleset. For whole rules, the https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Rulesets_%28OpenXcom%29#Modular_Rulesets, sadly doesn't apply.
So maybe should add a facility like '%key' meaning fully erase the key? This could allow you to have an empty  - type : STR_NIGERIA% which would do the job...

I don't see the point of this mod. X-Com is not realistic, it's a sci-fi game in an alternate/retro reality (well what people in 1990 thought things might be like in 2000). Remember the Cold War had just ended (had the USSR collapsed yet?)

Actually I'd like to see a mod which takes it more in the direction of TFTD... Neo-Japan, the People's Republic of Alaska, Africa Corporation etc

Or part of the way there. A United States of Europe or a divided USA maybe

I like it though, once it gets more fleshed out and balanced I will load it up happily. Will give myself a bit more fun when actually doing a UFO mission in a funding country instead of it just being some random place outside of the original funding nations.

Hi, MK...
Just added PR#707:https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/707 (https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/707) which deports the country borders into ruleset...
Along with the previous PR#701:https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/701 (https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/701) - erase rules enabler, which allows you to delete countries, and the PR#699:https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/699 (https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/pull/699) - scrolling country/region buttons in Graphs screen, I think that the Geoscape support for this mod is almost complete.

Just one request since you're messing about with the system -- would it be possible to add support for labels not connected to a nation?

Currently, labels are connected to nations -- it'd be nice if we could have non-connected labels that we could place over locations like Alaska or Hawaii called Alaska (USA) or Hawaii (USA).

Free labels over the map IMO was never thought of... they require a new "base rule"
I could think of instead:
Is that what you're looking for?
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on October 27, 2013, 08:47:41 pm
No, what I'm looking at is a label that can be placed on the map independently of the nation.

For example, in Improved Nations; French Guiana is considered part of France -- but there's no indication to the player that that bit of land in South America is considered part of France; so the player would be confused when UFO sightings over France are HIGH, when they have a base in France and have been shooting down UFOs.

A game guide for the Improved Nation Mod would solve this; but players generally don't read game guides.  ;D
Title: Re: Improved Nations Mod
Post by: gix on October 27, 2013, 09:41:29 pm
Well, that's why I was talking about regions also.
Each Region (South America for instance) is composed in ruleset from several squares (rectangles). What I see feasible is
- defining an extra square within your region (which will enclose French Guyana and it's spaceport), and at it's center to place the label...
- adding an extra label node-list => will look into this also

Trying out the -delete string and it keeps crashing the game with the git_master_2013_11_20_0723 version.

Hi, MK
Would you try putting all delete's in a separate rule file placed between the original xcom rul and the improved nations in the cfg file?
I think it would work this way.
On the latest build, you can also give a tray to the graphs scrolling buttons.

Fixed. (also you can keep it all in one ruleset, doesn't matter)

Edit: Btw your initial funding of $8.5M is still too low for your countries. I added a sanity check to avoid negatives and it comes out to like ~$10M on average.

Thanks to both.

The data in the funding files was just provisional placeholders -- I kept copy and pasting the last country into the new one; then just changing the coordinates/string name. Fixing up the funding was going to come last; and I still need to do that.

Are you using the latest nightly build? If you do, make sure you play in a language this game and mod supports. If you don't, do. :)

I had the same problem. My save died when I removed it, so I had to start over.

Would be nice to have the extra locations without more nations funding you. The Council of Funding Nations (https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Council_of_Funding_Nations) is a very nice complicated read btw.

It's using the old language specification 'English' instead of en-US or en-GB change that and it should be fine.

Post by: MKSheppard on April 03, 2014, 02:44:15 am
Give me some time to relocate my files on this mod; I kind of drifted away from it -- there were a few bugs in the implementation because I pushed the (then) game engine of OXCOM way beyond it's limits -- now that the programmers have fixed the engine issues; I'll get around to implementing a properly balanced version of this with actual nation income levels rather than simple cut n pastes.

PSA: Always back up your stuff. I lost a lot of XCOM modding stuff that I had placed on a SD card that one day went walky from my laptop.  :(
Title: Re: [GLOBE] Improved Nations Mod
Post by: MKSheppard on April 22, 2014, 07:24:01 am
Here's a kind of sort of complet-ish improved nations mod.

Basic formula I used to determine pricing was:

All nations contribute a flat fee of 75 to the XCOM project.

Then they're assessed a basic GDP contribution fee of their GDP divided by 125. E.g. a nation with $7,751 per capita GDP would have to pay 62.01.

Next up is population contribution fee; population divided by 5,000,000. A nation with 1.2 billion people would then have to pay approximately 240.

Finally there's special fees:

NUCLEAR POWER: 135 (Known nuclear powers like US, UK, France, Israel, India, Pakistan, China, Russia)

SHARED NUCLEAR POWER: 62.5 (People who share nukes under dual NATO control -- Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Turkey)

It's important to note that 1999 was a long time ago regarding economic growth -- Russia was still in the dumps following the breakup of the USSR; along with many former WARPAC states -- Germany was still swallowing up Eastern Germany, etc.

Terror site is terror site, it cannot be changed. However, it is possible to make a new alien mission where crash/landing site contains civilians dependant on the terrain.

Just in case, be aware that your file contains some hidden "tab" inside

As they are exclusively included in "blank lines", it works well anyway

But you could meet problems in the future... (or not...  ;))

A question : how do you think you will deal with new total funding being about twice as big as original funding ? I mean (as someone already noticed), this could have a great impact in whole game, don't you think so ?

When i downloaded this mod i simply halved all the funding numbers, so initial funding is rougly the same as before. Yet this leads to some poor countries have funding like $1000 or $3000, im quite satisfied with the mod

if you enable debug in the geoscape you can actually see the country borders, and the numbers we use just happen to correspond with the same exact numbers on google maps, so you can use that to get a good reference point.

PS: you should modify funding, in vanilla you only get $6M funding at start, with this mod I get $12M. Also consider that even if you lower this back to $6M, the game will still be easier with this mod, because when you loose a country it will be much less a hit to your funding with so much little countries. To balance that, you could somehow make it easier for the Aliens to infiltrate some of the smaller countries, for example (or all of them), so that you will get roughly the same game difficulty in general, but with more steps towards defeat...

Good morning!

I modified the ruleset myself now:
Starting fund: ~4.1M
Reduced all initial fundings to ~1/3
Reduced max funding to ~60%

Maybe someone can give it a try, i fear the funding might still be to high.

All credits go to the original author, i just changes some numbers  :)

haven´t tested the mod yet, but two cents based on what I read on the thread:

- add only/all cities in the world with metro areas with populations above a cap... let´s say, 3 million people.
here is a good list...

if we set the cap to 4 million people, there are 108 cities
cap at 3 million people, 153 cities
cap at 2 million people, 245 cities


- with a big number of megacities, China would be very interesting to protect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

some people talked before about making Africa tactically relevant. I disagree. I would prefer to go for realism. I am brazilian, but I usually throw S.America to the aliens.

I think we should get actual 2013-2014 IMF figures for countries GDP. And adjust them proportionally so the total sum will somewhat get close to Vanilla XCOM (that is, you don´t get super rich too fast, nor poor).

For example... in Vanilla, I started a few games where France contributes a lot more than China. Nigeria contributes as much as China and Brazil contributes more!

Doesn´t really reflects China´s current economic size.

Adjust economies to current status, and China (10 trillion), Japan (5 trillion), S.Korea (1.2 trillion) and India (1.8 trillion) become a source of revenue as important to protect as USA or the European Union.

Post by: Falko on September 15, 2014, 05:41:06 am
i did not add language strings
i removed all "pacts/entente/unions" there was sure no "STR_BALKANPACT" in that region at 1999
the other country fixes were new african countries (STR_DRCONGO, STR_ETHIOPIA, STR_ANGOLA, STR_ALGERIA, STR_MOZAMBIQUE, STR_IVORY, STR_KENYA (selection based on size, population and gdp lists) to make up for the loss of the "african union"
and splitting australia and new zealand into two countries
all of these + prague would need new strings i also did not make usefull founding values entries
this thread just needed  a bump with the new border functionality and the easy one can now edit borders, country boxes and city placements https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0
so hopefully it can be revived and supsuper can be convinced that in regard to border a "replace" instead of "add" would be better to e.g. fix clunky russian borders

i think it unlikely that there will be  mods "mexico.rul" and "iran.rul" to add single countries and their borders where an "add functionality" would be useful
but i can imagine many uses for a full replacement
you can recolour the borders and use them for something else
borders have no functionality in itself
e.g. in tftd the borders are rivers
making a scenario with completely different factions nation borders in the past/future
i can imagine making new planets where the borders e.g. energy lines/structures to fit some storyline
also
making "more correct" borders like this https://imgur.com/8zj22F7 would be nice

so my "fix" would be "replace" instead add

It should also be possible to replace "Polygons" defined in the World.dat, which is loaded in the standard ruleset.

please confirm that this mod is working with the latest nightly build. nations and regions seem to change, but no cities show up beyond vanilla ones.

This mod is only partially compatible with the latest nightly - the nightlies introduced changes to the missionZones (which include the cities) a long time ago.

thank you for the quick reply.
what do you think, is it possible to make it compatible? could missionZones be altered to include the cities without seriously changing missions themselves? i'm a bit into this ruleset thingy but does not quite understand the structure of regions (and i don't want to dive inside).
or do you happen to know of other mods that include cities?

You'll need to convert the 64 city entries to the new format used on the nightlies. And probably there are more conversions required elsewhere on the ruleset, I don't remember all the changes made to these sections since 1.0

You can compare the 1.0 ruleset to the nightlies using these links:

Have you checked the Terrain Pack (https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,2358.0.html)?

thanks, will check on the Terrain Pack and modify/strip it to my needs. i already saw that the nightly has the cities inside missionZones and i will not be able to include all cities.
thank you for the info.
