OpenXcom Extended / [SUGGESTION] All people are different
« on: August 31, 2020, 04:50:06 am »
This is possibility to vary enemy stats. In OG the aliens were clones, and this explains the same stats all members of each rank have. But in mods our opponents are often not clones, each of them supposed to have his own personal strengths and weaknesses. Some are dexterous and some are clumsy. Some are strong and some are weak.

Let classic Sectoid Leader be the example, but this guy also have mana to show how it works.

Code: [Select]
    stats:
      tu: 54
      stamina: 90
      health: 30
      bravery: 80
      reactions: 63
      firing: 52
      throwing: 58
      strength: 30
      psiStrength: 50
      psiSkill: 50
      melee: 76
      mana: 100

Here we need 3 modifiers:

1 - statsSpreading
Is maximum percentage modifier (int) for tu, stamina, health, reactions, firing, throwing, melee, strength & mana. Default 0, max 50. If set above 50 - it counts as 50. This modifier can be positive or negative - randomly. Also, each stat gets its own random-generated modifier, but not above threshold that we set.
Let's have statsSpreading: 30
When this unit spawning, its stats are modified by rng:
tu +10%
stamina: -20%
health: +7%
reactions: +15%
firing: +30%
throwing: -28%
strength: +1%
melee: +13%
mana: -14%
And on the battlefield we meet Sectoid Leader with following stats:
Code: [Select]
      tu: 59
      stamina: 72
      health: 32
      reactions: 72
      firing: 68
      throwing: 42
      strength: 30
      melee: 86
      mana: 86

If there another Sectoid Leader spawned - he gets his own modifiers and may be very different from the 1st one. E.g. Leader#1 is sniper with firing+30% while Leader#2 is grunt with health+30% but shooting not very good. And so on.

2 - psiSpreading
Is maximum flat modifier (int) for psiStrength & psiSkill. Default 0, max inf. This modifier is always positive.
Let's have psiSpreading: 18
It means this unit can spawn with random bonuses from 1 up to 18 for psi stats. Speaking of our Leader:
Code: [Select]
      psiStrength: 63
      psiSkill: 55
or
Code: [Select]
      psiStrength: 59
      psiSkill: 65

3 - braverySpreading
Is boolean. Default false. If true - bravery can get -20, -10, +0, +10 or +20, but not below 10.

First statGrowthMultipliers are applied - then this spreading algorhytms.

OpenXcom Extended / [SUGGESTION] Soft Ironman
« on: October 23, 2019, 11:19:45 am »
I don't want to play Ironman. It is too hard and unforgiving. But also I don't want to be a wascally savescumming wabbit. FLUFF saving each FLUFFIN' turn, but a chance to correct some mistakes is what I would like to have. So, the request:

Soft-Ironman mode. You can save manually only few times per mission (eg. twice).

Logics: manual saving creates a counter in the sav-file, something like saveWarning: 1. When this counter reaches the limit (set up in Global vars), manual saving is disabled. From this point saving on this mission works as classic Ironman. Maybe the counter can be placed in some distant hidden file, so players can't edit it easily - but dunno how to make this working properly (if only all missions would be created with their own unique ID and by that the engine can always clearly determine which counter for which mission was created).

OpenXcom Extended / Shortened country names
« on: March 24, 2019, 01:04:08 pm »
Sometimes the name of the country doesn't fit Graphs interface. Examples: Королевство Канадское, Срединная Провинция in RU XPiratez.

It's all OK on the Globe:


And rather ugly here:



Using shortened names on the Globe is not always good. But we can use separate strings for Graphs!
STR_COUNTRY: "NAME" for all cases but Graphs.
STR_COUNTRY_SHORT: "SHORT NAME" for Graphs.

Like this:



One more remark:


Maybe the "Funding" column can be moved to the right a little as it takes too much space presently? Not really crucial, but close enough, as you can see:

Help / Custom maps
« on: October 04, 2018, 05:26:35 pm »
There'll be some questions from rookie (really rookie >_<) modder about maps...

I tried to change a map's height: all DESERT map-blocks got +1 additional level (total 5) via Mapview2. Then, I ran a quick battle at 'Desert' terrain, but the game crashed.

Quote
A fatal error has occurred: Height of map MAPS/DESERT09.MAP too big for this mission, block is 5, expected: 4

So, how can I change 'expected' height?

XPiratez / What's wrong with the picture?
« on: November 08, 2017, 07:45:43 am »
In H2 I have a feeling that some textures are somewhat darker in comparison with G4. Just look at these paperdolls. They are identical. But what a difference in contrast / brightness! Why? I do like old graphics from G4. New one (H2) is a, urrrgh, piece of reapershit. I don't speak about battlescape yet, that's really toxic and eye-hurting.

Would you like to enable custom brightness / contrast / color, please?

XPiratez / Blood Ax ruins the game
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:07:36 pm »
Looks like blood ax is synergyzing with Syn (no pun intended) too good. I was able to eliminate 10 (!) enemies (Megapol) in just one turn with her (screen attached), without any overheating. Probably it may be nerfed/fixed with following: ax effect (no pun intended again) works only with organic wielder, as it is already done with beer and stimms. Ver. 0.99G4.
