OpenXcom Extended / Re: Time to clean up user options

No, it's the blue and purple boxes with numbers on the right-hand side of the UI.
Similar to the red/green boxes for visible aliens.
Oh I see. I'm fine with those.

Are the bleeding/stun indicator options about the little icons (example: blood drop) next to the affected units? If so I'd like them to be optional, I like my battelscape "clean".
Also, dunno how the No-spoiler tech-tree works but: when you are researching unknown alien stuff I think it makes sense you don't exactly know what you get from a research.

Work In Progress / Re: [WIP][MOD][OXCE+] From the Apocalypse 0.4c
« on: January 27, 2019, 04:13:27 pm »
new version 0.4c up
* redone illumination on luxury apartment and streamlined terrain; fixed ware_01 maps; uses OXCE 5.2
not satisfied with the version numbering thing, from next i'll use x.x.x format where each x is a digit.

@Duke_Falcon
I only tested a little but i don't have the issue you describe. so my suggestion is:
 - update to OXCE latest version (5.2 iirc);
 - double check you don't have other mods (aside from OXCE stuff) active, because my mod is incompatible with (almost) anything else.

Hi!

Well, I have some minor troubles with this mod. I started it on OXCE 3.7x not on "conventional" OXC.
1.: Since the very beginning I have research options for "Floater medic", "Sectoid medic" and Snakeman. All got researched almost instantly (5-8 hours in game time) and either give me a free "live alien report" or crash to desktop (STR_WHATEVER not defined, last time it was the Megaworm\Multiworm)...
2.: When I try to launch one of my crafts the game crashes and say interface elements are missing. I could not got any ground combat or air combat as it just crash when I click on the "Interception" menu.

I downloaded the last valid 7z file from this mod and overwritten the old game folder with it. I not think it is a ruleset error as I always delete old rulesets before override a mod's folder just for sure...
Strange. I will look into it this weekend.
I'm currently using OXCE 5.1 (v2018-10-14) on my pc to test the mod, so in the meantime you can try to update to that version (or a newer one), because the version 3.7 is probably obsolete for the current release (0.4) of the mod.
Also the mod never used "OXCE" but it used "OXCE+"; they now have merged into one single project, so the difference does not exist anymore, but for your version 3.7 the difference still existed.

Help / Re: Replace MCD library in a set (MapView and more)
« on: January 21, 2019, 09:52:55 pm »
I know the map will be funky-broken, but if that can be fixed by hand without issue then I'm good.
What I'm scared about is map corruption or the like.

I know about mapview2, but I already have too much stuff set up in mapview1 to switch.

OpenXcom Extended / Re: [Suggestion] Inventory slots per armor
« on: January 20, 2019, 09:16:05 pm »
IMO the current current "black patch" method already enables every inventory customization I can think of; it's certainly a hack but it works.
But I use few armors and few slots customizations, so I might not fully appreciate the potential/improvement that this new method bring to the table.

Help / Replace MCD library in a set (MapView and more)
« on: January 20, 2019, 08:01:04 pm »
Can I change this
Code: [Select]
files:Office Luxury
${dep}:MCDLIB1 MCDLIB2 MCDLIB3
        MYMAP00:${dep}
end
like this
Code: [Select]
files:Office Luxury
${dep}:MCDLIB1 MCDLIB4 MCDLIB3
        MYMAP00:${dep}
end
without issues?
MCDLIB2 and MCDLIB4 have exactly the same amount of tiles inside.
Obviously I'll need to tweak the map for the changed tiles, but that's a given; what I'd like to know is whether there is risk of map corruption or similar bad stuff.

Geoscape related: long time ago I actually asked Warboy if it was possible to define a series of globe textures acting like "sea" (meaning: no crash site generation on them), so I could draw a spacescape out of the geoscape.
He told me that I was insane. :'(

Indeed it would probably be near impossible to make it look decent.

So the geoscape gameplay will essentially have players oversee the globe and its many mega-cities, instead of city districts on a flat map?
Yes.
I don't know if a flat geoscape can be done; but even if I manage to make a flat-looking geoscape it would still lack the dynamics/mechanics of Apocalypse (like different buildings having different sensitivity to infiltration, and so on), so in the end it wouldn't be worth it in my opinion.

Hi Robin,

One question, how do you to plan handle Mega-primus gameplay compared to the classic x-com geoscape? Additionally, are you planning to add any of the so-called features that were scrapped from the original game?
I'm not sure I got what you're asking but:
  • Anything fancy needs coding and I can't do that, I'm limited to what's doable by plain modding (which is quite a lot). But scrapped Apoc stuff is mostly (if not completely) fancy stuff that can't be done without coding.
  • There will be multiple mega cities instead of one.. I guess the geoscape will more or less work in a classic UFOEU fashion.
  • There's already human-related missions but its minor stuff. One special human mission will be available once a country has fallen under alien control: instead of an alien base a "Subverted HQ" (or similar) site will be created, if the player clears that battelscape the country will be freed. Also I'd like to add another lesser enemy faction: rogue androids; but we'll see.

Work In Progress / Control equipment stack position
« on: January 10, 2019, 10:11:39 pm »
Is there a way to control where (on which tile) the stack of unequipped equipment is placed on the entry map/craft?
Thanks

Update: the walls can also generate light for a tile in OXCE now... same as floor and object
Nice!
Thank you.

Work In Progress / Re: [WIP][MOD][OXCE+] From the Apocalypse 0.4
« on: January 01, 2019, 06:40:04 pm »
New version up, 0.4.
Added the office (police) terrain.
I think I changed the missionScripts too, but so much time passed I'm not sure anymore.

I really need to rework the Apartments terrain, make it simpler so I can also use a much simpler mapScript (currently the map can have "errors", which is ugly as fuck); the result will be less flexible/random but it will work correctly.
I'd also like to tweak the Luxury Apartments terrain, too many 2-storey buildings: as Hobbes said in another thread, players don't really go there.
