The OXCE download package has the same structure as the vanilla OpenXcom nightly download package.
All installation instructions are also exactly the same.

- you don't need to install OpenXcom before installing OXCE
 - all you need is in this single package, everything else will only cause you trouble if you mix it together

Since OXCE v5.3, it is possible to load mods and also vanilla resources files in 2 different ways:
1. from a directory (with many files)
2. from a single ZIP file

You should NOT use both approaches at once!

Below are three examples of vanilla resource loading (2 good examples and 1 bad example):
- Example 1: BAD (both standard/common directory and zip file)
- Example 2: GOOD (standard/common directory only)
- Example 3: GOOD (standard/common ZIP files only)
