Installed last night, couldnt get network to connect and i couldnt get into a hotseat for some as pretty late, i may try again tonight.

Working on another map set for my game, still very early days :P

Modding in OpenXcom is pretty fun.

My advice if you want to give it a shot is that using a YAML compatible text editor like Notepad++ can make coding .rul files much easier.

(Just click the 'Language" button in the Notepad++ menu bar and select "YAML" from the bottom of the list after opening the OpenXcom .rul file you wish to edit or create.)

This is even better then Notepad++ when modding Openxcom:,6552.0.html

NOPE, only APOC has this mechanic....It would be nice to have in OXC but it wont be easy to implement.

I better post this here also i guess, so i have built some basic mission scripts to get my head around how the data works for them, now i am happy i have enough to start the game, i better get back to my increasing Tech Tree :P

Hey look at that, they Pinned my Post :)

Here are some links to help any new Mapbuilders:
Also Check out Solarius Guide here for Mapview1 :

This link explains how to use MCDEDIT to do minor sprite work on terrain & adjust all the rules for the tiles:

This link covers Export and Re-importing sprites ( both terrain and Units) through PCKVIEW & how to correct any colour pallet issues with Irfanview:

This link goes to our Mod templates, i did these as it is becoming very hard to see how something works by looking at other peoples work as most Mods are now massive and confusing :) this is my attempt to counteract that :

There are a few other topics listed on the website and some rescource from the very first OXC modders still hidden away in the OldModfIles section...Happy Hunting.

Cool, keep the sprites coming then, in return you can share the future maps i build ;)

I will be using this Doom mod as part of my tutorial series as a example for new modders so if i dont need to worry about the sprites that makes things easier  :P

So far i have the below sprites working but have not done the corpse and stuff yet.

I have also started toying with a Geoscape design, im thinking we do the entire thing in Hell just to get away from the usual Xcom feel.

Savage Crawlers are ready to hunt down anyone who enters the WasteLands

Update: Have added the first Savages into the game
