It's fairly easy to change the spawn chance yourself, if you dont want to wait for luck, (or get tired of the ludicrous amount of ghost missions)

in the file XComFiles\Ruleset\missionScripts_XCOMFILES.rul
row 10782 you will see:
  - type: alienOrbitalStation
    firstMonth: 0
    executionOdds: 50
        STR_USTATION: 100
    useTable: false
    startDelay: 30
    randomDelay: 43500

change executionOdds: 50 to executionOdds: 100 and the mission will spawn next month

As long as we are pitching ideas,

How about a mission inspired by:
Werewolf Women of the SS (2007)

Could give hints about the black sun earlier, and give it more ties with the syndicate.

For Zombie Isolation mission the allowed armors list shows UNARMORED (DOG).
But dog units are forbidden

Are the hauntedFarm/hauntedHouse supposed to have so high executionOdds?
33 is way more than even the early Cult missions.

Mabey something could be created for when all cults are contained, would be nice with a "good job" bonus there.

and both industrialInvestigationLate and skiResortLate could look for that.

or is there a reason industrialInvestigationLate keeps spawning indefinitely?

When other mission types stops spawning you get a message saying something like:
"The Council will monitor them from now on, so we should expect no more hidden cave missions."

It would be nice with a message saying you no longer need sports gear.

Help / Mod idea, spawning ufos. newbie questions.
« on: May 19, 2022, 09:43:51 pm »
I have a mod idea for letting the player spawn ufo's.
Inspired by the USO Trap mission i xcf. Where you you send out as false supply request to the aliens.

I'm thinking a new hyperwave encoder facility, that lets you manufacture an "ambush transmission" item, that causes a ufo mission to spawn.
This would speed up the part of the game where you are just waiting for a ufo with the correct alien rank onboard to spawn, or are just farming elerium.

Using different "ambush transmission" item based on what ufo's you have researched would also give those researches some meaning.

The hyperwave encoder facility could require an item only found in alien bases so you dont build it too early.

some questions about modding:
  • Do I need to restart the game everytime i change a file?, or will the game for example read the missionScripts file every month?
  • I see that the Mission Scripts have itemTriggers/facilityTriggers that could be used, but would that mean that the mission spawns near the base that has the item or facility?
  • Is it possible to spawn flying ufos this way?
  • If i add a missionBountyItem to STR_ALIEN_BASE_ASSAULT alienDeployment, can i add just that one thing? and lets the rest come from another mod or the default rules? or do I have to redefine the whole thing?

The wiki shows that lab ships have 1 commander on veteran/genius

but the c++ code rounds 1/2 down,  so it doesnt get deployed.

lowQty: 0
highQty: 1
dQty: 0
int quantity;

if (_game->getSavedGame()->getDifficulty() < DIFF_VETERAN)
   quantity = (*d).lowQty + RNG::generate(0, (*d).dQty); // beginner/experienced
else if (_game->getSavedGame()->getDifficulty() < DIFF_SUPERHUMAN)
   quantity = (*d).lowQty+(((*d).highQty-(*d).lowQty)/2) + RNG::generate(0, (*d).dQty); // veteran/genius
   quantity = (*d).highQty + RNG::generate(0, (*d).dQty); // super (and beyond?)

quantity += RNG::generate(0, (*d).extraQty);
