OpenXcom Extended / [DONE][SUGGESTION] Burning downed unit lighting.
« on: July 23, 2022, 05:00:59 am »
Idea is to make downed unit, who continues to burn, to produce light as normal fire until it dies.

Help / Self-priming grenade
« on: March 24, 2022, 11:04:44 am »
Is it possible somehow to create a self-priming grenade? So that when item is created, it is allready primed?

To the point: i want to create corpse, that will explode later, on the next turn after death. "specab" can not be delayed, and corpse can not be of type: 4, so i create another item, that drops down when unit is killed, and then make real corpse invisible (with size 0x0). But if i use fuseType: -3 it will not explode, in any other cases it must be primed manually.
When we create items with terrain, there is "fuseTimers:". But what about items in pockets?

Now it is like on screenshot. Text is ok, but name can not be seen.
Is it possible to draw an article name atop of unit inventory image?

Help / Mod content: powers of light and dark.
« on: February 01, 2022, 10:40:11 am »
Hello, fellow X-Com commanders.
During my modding i ran into a question. I am creating fantasy mod, containing powers of light (blessings, angels, so on) and powers of dsrkness (necromancy, etc). So i want to know your opinion, which way should these powers interact. First way - no interaction, maybe facilities of dark can not be built on bases where temples allready exist, and so on. Second way - similar to Dioxine's codexes, when you must chose side.
I must confess that results will have little effect on my opinion, but maybe some thoughts will be convincing.

Help / Invisible region
« on: January 30, 2022, 05:16:59 pm »
I'm using special region to spawn special mission. All works fine, mission spawns in a random point inside needed area.
But this custom region shows in "Alien activity graph", and that bothers me and can misguide player.
So, can i somehow "hide" region? Or maybe i should use another way to spawn mission?

Released Mods / X-Chronicles Release, v.0.99.6
« on: November 03, 2021, 11:39:03 am »
I realized that i can endlessly add new things and endlessly postpone the release version. So let me introduce you:
 The X-Chronicles version 0.99

Or not really?
Choose a patron country on which the gameplay will depend.
Learn magic technologies and throw away your guns.
Evolve your operatives from ordinary humans to demigods ... or monsters.
Learn powerful battle spells.

and lose outright to the horrors there.

Copy to the mod folder, run the game and chose "Base game" X-Chronicles.
Thanks: to OpenXcom authors for a brilliant game; to Yankes and Meridian for powerful OXCE, to the other modders from whom I borrowed something.

Release status: mod is fully playable, but not really balanced.
Version 0.99 means, that i will work on it further, maybe for years, adding new stuff and redacting existing things.

Future plans:
 - more maps;
 - more undead;
 - more summons;
 - demons;
 - alchemy;
 - dwarves and elves, maybe.
If you want to help:
 - This mod desperately needs a spell check of English translation.
 - More map blocks needed for existing terrains. I will do it myself, but slowly.
 - I will be grateful for bug reports. 


All X-Com resources belongs to X-Com franchise owners (Take-Two Interactive, i think)

All other is under CC-NC-BY-SA , as mr.Hobbes insisted.


Idea was to forbid psi-nullers to train in psi-labs. It is useful for not ot train tank ai in a gym too, and other similar cases.
Maybe it is possible to add one or two properties into soldier definition?

OpenXcom Extended / [SUGGESTION]startingCondition for each mission stage.
« on: October 12, 2021, 11:40:52 am »
Please, make different startingConditions work for second-stage missions.
Example: first stage is open ground, second is inside caves or building, so no 2x2 units can pass. Or, in my case, second stage have EM-interferences, so no electronic devices possible.
Now i must disable tanks for whole mission, but they can be useful in first stage.

Help / GlobeMarkers, explain your smolness.
« on: October 10, 2021, 08:42:20 pm »
Encountered strange effect when trying to implement GlobeMarkers, all markers become 1 dot. See screenshot.
Code fragment:
Code: [Select]
  - type: GlobeMarkers
    width: 210
    height: 7
    subX: 7
    subY: 7
      0: Resources/UI/UFO_Icons.png
Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_SMALL_BOAT
    size: STR_SMALL
    marker: 10
    markerLand: 15
    markerCrash: 20

Am i unheeding again or what? Help me please...

How about commendation, given for certain alienDeployment? Like "these veterans was in a battle of Cydonia! Oh, oh..." :-)

When one transforms a unit, it is possible to keep new unit wearing old armor. But what if new unit can not use such armor type, but player does not want to lose old suit?
I think it is needed to divide
Code: [Select]
keepSoldierArmorinto two:
Code: [Select]
keepSoldierArmorand perhaps
Code: [Select]
storeSoldierArmor, which will remove armor suit from unit and place it into base inventory.

Help / Replacing weapon sprite depending of ammo.
« on: September 23, 2021, 12:08:26 pm »
I think i saw somewhere a mod, that changes sprites for loaded and empty guns in battlescape. But now i can not find nor it, nor these possibilities in ruleset or scripts.
Am i hallucinating?

OpenXcom Extended / Miles and more
« on: August 13, 2021, 10:04:46 am »
I also have no idea how much a mile or a knot is... I'm from Europe... that's why I added conversion to kilometers and to km/h.
By the way, nautical miles are not equal to american mile. It is a meridian length of one arc minute size. Useful for those who navigate over the globe. But hard to understand to surface people. :)
Nevertheless I prefer kilometers too.

Help / Script access to builtInWeapons.
« on: August 09, 2021, 09:18:28 am »
Continuing this discussion:,9992.0.html

I managed to create an item, which represents shield power. It is built-in in armor, and updates each turn.
But now i want to update it each time the unit is hit. And i can not gain access to this item from "hitUnit:" script hook.

Is this even possible?

OpenXcom Extended / [DONE] Scripts and burning man question.
« on: August 09, 2021, 07:55:58 am »
Is there any hooks, variables, commands, etc in scripts, to acquire status of unit: on fire or not?
