The main focus on this first update is to try and test the weapons (and the enemies) on the mission simulator. This is also the second IDT mod to use Filip-H's ammo resprite script (the first one is Counter-Terrorism Operations), which allows to dynamically change the bigOb sprite based on the ammo loaded. Our goal is to have this feature on all our mods.

Our next goal is to add the campaign with both Act 1 story missions and side missions. The work is slow but steady!

Yeah, i forgot to update the forum thread since 3 months ago. :P But better late than never!

So, basically the mod is completely playable from beginning to end! The main story arc is finished, but we are still working on refining and balancing the mod, plus making new content.

Make sure to
Spoiler:
play the Overseer mission without saving and reloading
. There is an issue with the map generation of said craft and you cannot finish the battle if you have saved and reloaded... not even once. The issue has been found and it will be fixed on the next update. Otherwise, feel free to go!

Also, our fellow Streamer friends have been playing UNEXCOM!

Make sure to give them a check over Twitch and YouTube.

The github support is awesome and the app itself its quite easy to use.

I'm not a big fan of TFTD, but you had me with your Red Alert 2 joke! I'll give it a good try, sounds like a reasonable and well planned mod!

I like the concept of having First Alien War tech, I'll bug you with issue feedback if i find any.
Congrats on your new mod, btw! Looking forward to seeing additional progress on your project.

My friend Filip H told me he's working on your mod. And he is a staple of hard work and high quality standards, so I'm sure this project will become an excellent mod!

Great idea and brilliant implementation, i look forward to see more news from you.

I've been on the hype train since... huh, two years ago. I'm glad it finally came to the hype station!

Congrats for your new release, my friend! Looking forward to see this mod active a long time.  ;D

Howdy!

Mate, dunno if it's a bug or something on my side but could be possible to save the handOb and floorObs in the OXC palette like on UnitSprite Studio? Every time I save a sprite it removes the palette and I need to fix it.

Just a minor hindrance, otherwise the tool works delightful. Keep up the good work!  ;D

OpenXcom Extended / [SUGGESTION] Priming grenades sound
« on: April 26, 2021, 06:50:01 am »
Howdy!

I'd like to make a (i hope) small suggestion for a new addition: a priming sound for grenades (battleType: 4)!
My ideas for it are basically having a small "ping!" when you prime a Frag, a tic-tac sound on a TNT pack or a lighter starting fire on the cloth of a Molotov!

Example below

Code: [Select]
items:
  - type: STR_GRENADE
    explosionHitSound: 50
    primeSound: 51
    tuPrime: 20

I hope this may be useful for other modders besides me and i hope this may be easy to implement. Thanks in advance!

@efrenespartano:
I'm not sure I understand what you need. I've never done any unit sprite recoloring myself.
I came up with something like this:
You would select which layers and frames you want to change, then create a list of operations to do on the pixels. For example 'Change color' or 'Change brightness' and then apply the operations.
I've added a draft of how the UI could look.

Basically this is what I had in mind! Thanks a bunch, looking forward to see it implemented

That's basically what I've doing since I started using it. I'm not saying it's impossible to continue to do it like that, but I'd like to spend more time working on this tool when doing sprites. xD
