since xpiratez takes lots of inspiration form anime,  how about something from "akira" movie and
 "porco rosso" (the plot sees pirates and dogfighting so it might fit well) or some other work from Hayao Miyazaki  8)

You better point out specific things from those IPs you want/think will fit in X-Piratez, otherwise such general suggestions will get ignored from being too broad.

Snipped

I suggest you format the editing-to-avoid-double-posting-post like this:

Quote
Original Post

EDIT: More Stuff

EDIT 2: Even More Stuff

EDIT 3: But Wait, There Is More!

But to be more on topic, in my earlier post above I talked of Ashes 2063/Afterglow, well I remembered that the mission pack for the former, Dead Man Walking, had another set of bandits, the Rippers, which in practice meant reskinned and repurposed assets (which is still a bit of work for a sprite-based game), but one of those is a tricorne-wearing dual wielder (An American Revolution one, not a pirate one, to go along with their a bit insane take on American Revivalism, but still).

OXCE Suggestions NEW / Re: [Suggestion] fixed weapon firing mod

I'm the figurative "Old Man Yelling at Cloud" regarding this, but my two cents:

A simpler version of your suggestion is for right-click to open up the existing left-click options of attacks/uses and set the firing mode there without the need for unique graphics.

A more modern solution is for several context-dependent icons/buttons that represent "Aimed/Snap/Auto and so on" to be present above their respective weapon boxes, similar to the stuff that appears at the upper-right corner when you have a gear/transformed soldier with a gimmick, to emulate NuXCom. EDIT: Or instead of many buttons for each action, a single button that changes fire mode/use.

A highly unlikely to be granted request:

A submod for 4x2 Hangars with room for 1 extra craft (which might be possible with a recent development) just to have that extra premium space for everything else.

Though from what I heard Dio doesn't like the idea of differently sized hangars that do not follow the "4 tiles = 1 craft" convention, presumingly for balance reasons.

Great game guys. Could you please help me figure out the following:
Does Gal's rank - for example Boss Gal - influence only her salary?
Does an original crew get promoted if a player hire multiple peasants and Catgirl outlaws? Or those branches have their own hierarchy?

All vanilla rank stuff also applies to X-Piratez, I assume.

Regarding X-Piratez (and OpenXcom mods in general), certain 'Transformation' options are locked behind high ranks, and certain items and actions are more effective the higher the rank (ex: White Admiral outfit and the humanist weapons).

AFAIK, everyone shares the hierarchy under-the-hood.

Stuff from Doom Total Conversion Post-Apoc mods Ashes 2063 and Ashes Afterglow, from most realistic to wishful thinking:

* Sprites for items and weapons (though most of them are modified Doom and Build stuff, which means that the originals are present in XP in one form or another already)
* Pit-Fiend as a toxic and/or radioactive upgrade/alternative to the Bloodhound; (EDIT: Also comes in bigger, ride-able females variant)
* Vulture Bandits as additions/replacements to/for bandits/raiders;
* Cannibal Mutants as a savage mutant faction;

A question due to the impending restart:

What Captain Personality matches with the Golden Codex choice?

Previously I had gone with Jerkass/Triumphant option because the art matched the GC Admiral outfit and because it gave an obvious reward (Treasure Hunting).

About the Apoc-style equipping:

In my recent experience I found that managing soldier inventory via the Base Soldier inventory to be buggy: Sometimes the changes do not save, sometimes they revert to what the soldiers had months ago, sometimes not recognizing that I have items on the "ground" in the first place unless I have them in excess.

Equipping soldiers via the Craft Inventory (in geoscape, not during battle start), on the other hand, so far has been bug-free for me and working as intended.

Not sure what is so different between the Inventory in Soldier Screen and the Inventory in the Craft Screen that leads to such different results.

I think you suffered a bad RNG on Ninja HQ placement.

In my current run, I placed my first base in North America and in the Ninja HQ dropped deep in North Africa.

But IMO, there should be a code that prevents the Ninja HQ from spawning in the theoretical max radar range of the first Hideout just to prevent cases like these.

Is it possible to crash the Ninja Mobile Fortress, or they are always set to be blown to pieces?

EDIT:

The Hyper-Wave Decoder told that one of Guild Ships had a mission 'Guild Hideout'.

Does this means it creates a new Hideout, or merely supplies an existing one?

For some reason I keep on getting this after I just installed it.

Delete it, make a clean-install, and overwrite the research.rul in the cities lore submod with the file provided here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,3626.msg150029.html#msg150029

Terrain issue, now fixed. Case closed. :)

Does this mean that I have to wait for the new version, or will there be a new file I can replace the old, buggy one with?

Scavenging and Treasure Hunting.....How?

If you buy a Recon expedition from the Black Market, you can debrief etc. But I have no idea how to use the Treasure Hunting or get the items needed to do the Scavenge: Antarctica etc.
Any tips?

For me, those unlocked by choosing the Jackass/Triumphant Captain option, and how it works AKAIK is that occasionally you will get a pop-up event (the frequency of which is dependent on the number of bases in the regions) showing a successful/failed treasure hunting.

On failure you get a minor Infamy hit.

On success you get an item in your first base to extract from via manufacturing.

Most of the time, it is crap like Scrap Metal and Chemicals.

But one time, I got THE SINISTER DEVICE OF DOOM from an Oceania scavenging, which is AFAIK is bad for a Golden Codex Captain if the disabled techs in Tech Tree Viewer is anything to go by.

Hello again! the N2 brings up the xcom: apocalypse equipment craft style, but i don't get it, please how does it work?

The simplest way to describe it is that the equipment is now tied more to the Hands/Soldiers than the craft itself.

For example, you equipped the Lunatic Uber via the Hands screen and then assigned her to an Airbus, and thus the items she carried will be automatically transferred over to the Airbus, and will be transferred out if she is unassigned.

The number/+numbers is stuff equipped on the Hands and stuff lying in the craft, respectively, and the former cannot be subtracted via the equipment screen, you need to directly remove the items from the Hand in question. Also, if those items are either fully equipped by the hands or fully lying in the craft, the separation will not be shown.

This what briefing screen warned you about (if you read briefing screens at all, of course): another hunter party arrived first. So what is the bug you were talking about? The number of hunters?

I thought that referred to the bystanders that occasionally spawned in these hunting missions?
