Hi there

I am receiving an error when activating the latest XOPS Legacy using the latest BrutalAI build.

Here are the messages I receive when trying to activate XOPS Legacy:

and here is the error message I receive when I have both XOPS Legacy as well as Brutal AI active:

Any help appreciated  :)

Hello, and thank you for your report. The issue you're encountering is a result of the recent OXCE update, which has introduced modifications to certain features previously defined differently. I've already addressed many instances of this, and the upcoming patch, scheduled for this Wednesday, will encompass these fixes along with several other enhancements.

Walltext alert:
Spoiler:
This update will include corrections to XCOM base maps, adjustments to various in-game maps, illumination and reorganization of props (including replacements and recoloring where necessary), and the completion of MapView sprites. Currently, if you navigate to the map interface, you might notice jagged or incorrectly colored elements (mostly appearing orange). This has been rectified in 99.9% of instances, though some minor touch-ups, particularly on the hangars' handrails, are pending. However, given the complexity of the task, I've opted not to delay the update further for such a trivial detail, and it will be fully resolved in the subsequent patch expected in February.

Additionally, numerous bug fixes and overall tweaks have been implemented. I'm in the process of translating the changelog and reorganizing some folders to facilitate the update's release. Once again, thank you for your reports and your patience.

Greetings, and a big thank you for your ongoing patience. I'm thrilled to share the latest update for the mod with you. Compatibility checks with the most recent OXCE and BRUTAL AI versions have been completed, ensuring smooth functionality.

If you come across any issues or problems I might have missed, please don't hesitate to inform me.

This update is primarily centered around the completion of work on the maps, with a special focus on enhancing the map view. The changes aim to provide a more visually pleasing experience, bidding farewell to the wild orange and jarring images in the overview map scren. Also, all buildings should be correctly illuminated, the strength of light sources has been fine-tuned, and some props even generate light independently (take the giant blue holographic globe, for example). Alongside these improvements, there have been minor corrections and enhancements to certain maps. Additionally, recoloring and improvements to specific props have been implemented.

While I'm confident that my changelog is not exhaustive, I didn't want to delay the release any further.

Here's the changelog, and the lines marked as **new** highlight changes introduced in this version from the betas.




Spoiler:
ersion 0.97.05 LE Live patch

One of the significant milestones in this update is the completion of translating and structuring my To-Do List. It's important to note that this list is not a fixed set of goals; changes, additions, or deletions might occur without prior notice. This transparency helps in communicating the intended direction and potential future changes for the mod. Your feedback is invaluable and can assist in making informed decisions and avoiding wasted efforts.

**General Changes:**

  * Candidates for officer school must achieve the rank of Sergeant or higher.
  * Officer candidates undergo training, resetting their rank to the lowest in the officer chain.
  * This resolves the issue of soldiers skipping ranks when promoted, enhancing both gameplay and immersion. Activate the "allow manual promotions" feature for optimal results.

- Renamed some alien races to better align with their general lore:
  * Ancient Abominations are now called SPAWNS.
  * Alien Hybrids are now called ABOMINATIONS.

- Changed the load order of alien materials items for easier access (xelloys, elerium, codex stuff).

**Sprites Changes:**

- Conducted a general aesthetic retouch on XCOM transport planes and fighters.

- Fixed problems with explosion radius for various explosives, ensuring more balanced and predictable outcomes.

- *(New)* Updated maps, including changes to prop distribution in the hangar, barracks, and gym.
  * Reduced overall base light brightness.
  * Implemented floor textures for a rustic concrete appearance.

- *(New)* Initial pass on the SCANG.dat file, improving base map view clarity.

- *(New)* Adjusted colors for units on the minimap:
  * XCOM units are now blue.
  * Aliens are red.
  * Civilians and neutrals are yellow.

- Implemented new props from the "From the Apocalypse" mod by Robin:
  * Personnel Lockers
  * Medical treatment Bed(to be used in a future infirmary/hospital, currently in progress)

**Visual Overhaul:**

- Completed all building structures and dispositions.
  * Illumination for newer rooms will be applied after the holidays.
  * Improved MCD files with extra assets correctly colored to the XCOM EU palette.
  * Recolored assets like chairs and started recoloring floor tiles for a weathered appearance.

- Reworked the workshop building:
  * Added a better assembly board.
  * Added and recolored the robot arm assembler.

- Fixed "invisible floor squares" on the second level of corridors.
- Improved the fusion ball cannon building, adding advanced monitors for interface.

- *(New)* Completed all new map work, including modified floor tiles for a rustic concrete look.

**Sprites:**

- Conducted small experimental changes to the XOPS armor, a prelude to a complete revamp of ALL armor sprites.
  * Added an XCOM patch on XOPS tier.

**Bug Fixes:**

- Removed the weapon slot from the Dragonfly and prevented it from appearing in new campaigns.
- Resolved a crash-to-desktop issue caused by a missing ufopedia HEC armor file.
- Fixed "invisible floor squares" on the second level of corridors.
- Fixed missing floor tiles on the catwalks in the hangars.
- Fixed missing walls in the large living quarters.
- *(New)* Temporarily fixed advanced dog armors causing CTD, using the basic harness while ongoing design work continues.
- *(New)* Resolved an issue preventing mechanical units from equipping Dragonflies and Fireflies using the new OXCE patch; future plans involve transitioning tanks to the armor system.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Version 0.97.05 beta Changelog:**

Visual Overhaul:
- Completely revamped the appearance of the Xcom base with new props, tiles, and assets extracted from TFTD.
- Improved storage tiles for the basic general store facility and the hangar to align with the updated map disposition.

Balance Tweaks:
- Adjusted some capacity numbers:
  * Small living quarters can now accommodate 20 units (down from 25).
  * Large living quarters have a reduced capacity of 100 units (down from 125).

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed an issue preventing the Dagger from being loaded in transport troops or during base defense missions.
- Updated the Georgia flag to the correct version from 2004 (previously using an outdated flag).
- Resolved deployment problems for units in transport planes:
  * The Dragonfly now correctly loads its 12 soldiers, and weapon spawning tiles have been relocated.
  * Similar adjustments made to the Firefly for correct soldier spawning, with item spawning tiles moved to a safer location away from the ramp.
- Corrected the description of the Sectopod autopsy in the UFOpaedia.
- Fixed a UFOPaedia CTD issue related to the XCf0-bishop, ensuring the picture displays correctly. Thanks Daev for the report.
- Solved an issue with the Miniguns' behavior, preventing the camera from excessively following each shot and causing flickering in certain situations.


Installation:

**To properly run the mod, you'll need an OXCE installation (currently version 7.8.7 at the time of finishing this post).
** BRUTAL AI MOD by Xilmi is highly recommended, and at this point, I consider it a must-have. I encourage you to check it out.

- Download the file from the site XOPS LEGACY by Blackwolf in MOD.io Portal or the file attached (the difference in size is irrelevant, its the same , just that i found a way to better compress it and evade the size limitation in the forum)
- Unzip and Drop the content inside your MOD folder.
- When updating from previous versions of the mod, it's recommended to delete the old folder completely (rather than simply overwriting it) and use the newer version, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED (for hotfixes and patches).

Happy hunting!

Hello! I wanted to shake things up a bit and give you a sneak peek into some of the work in progress again, instead of simply waiting until work its done to be revealed. Recently, I delved into experiments aimed at enhancing the appearance of the first tiers of armors. While it's still a work in progress and there's a lot to be done, I wanted to share a glimpse of what's in the pipeline.

Please note that this is far from being ready for a live version, but I'm really conformed about the current progress. Tons of work its still needed like working on the six different color variations, additional detailing for the female version, exploring various helmet variations, and more.

Stay tuned for further updates on these developments. Also, here's a heads-up about some really early
 iteration of the changes changes to the second tier!

Good news, everyone! more info on the armor front. Progress is smooth, with the first tier of Kevlar armors almost completed. Next up, I'll be adapting them for female soldiers, which should be relatively straightforward. However, the real game-changer will be the introduction of different uniform sizes. Some soldier sprites are larger or wider than others, and rather than opting for a one-size-fits-all approach like my first attempt last year, I'm committed to ensuring each soldier has a tailored armor set and completely revamped helmets.

Here's a sneak peek of the work in progress. I'm still deciding which option looks better for the green version, so your feedback is welcome!

All vests and pouches were sourced from the "INTO THE ABYSS" MOD, with the assest being done by Woofington Hans and Efrenspartano. I've focused on doing more retouches and recoloring.

Stay tuned for further updates

Good news everyone!

I originally aimed to complete the implementation of the first level of paperdoll sprites for the initial armor tier before releasing the next update. However, after receiving valuable feedback from players on the Reddit thread (special thanks to GetFreur and Hadan) regarding stability issues, I decided to prioritize addressing these concerns. Thanks to their reports, I was able to identify certain options that could be adjusted to enhance the overall stability of the mod. Additionally, I took the opportunity to rectify over 200 missing strings and improper references to items and equipment, which in some cases could lead to CTDs.

Most importantly, I have successfully resolved the errors associated with cargo and cruiser line ships. This means no more CTDs at startup, and your planes will now spawn correctly on the designated helipad. This significantly improves the survivability rate of missions involving these ships, which previously posed a significant challenge as you technically couldn't retreat.

Rather than delaying the update to complete the graphical overhaul of the armors, I felt these bug fixes warranted an immediate release. This also allows me to introduce updates to not just one, but TWO tiers of armor. The upcoming XOPS armors will undergo a total visual and gameplay revamp, with more details to follow in a future post.

Overall, discussions surrounding their intended uses have been thorough, and the visual aspects are nearly complete. I'm excited to provide a sneak peek in the attachments below.

Good hunting!

Hi, blackwolf!
If you are not aware, xops armor has usable shoulder slots, but not outlined by boxes. Is it intentional? Other armors might have similar issues.
Also, Kamchatka is gone, and Pacific ocean in general has several 'stitches', visible if you use higher resolution and rotate the globe. Probably you combined different globes?
Both issues are minor. Thank you for your work!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Scamps. I wasn't aware of the issue, but rest assured it will be addressed in the next patch. Much appreciated!

Regarding the map tweaks, I've been working on enhancing the overall appearance of the globe. However, I've encountered some challenges with the tools. I may need to revert to previous iterations to resolve the issue, especially when it comes to certain regions like South America.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding

hi, thank for you report, as Meridian said , the problem is caused by the NO PSIONIC MOD, remember that this mod is an overhaul (thus, better to be played standalone), consider also that this mod changes both lasers and tanks behaviour, therefore having those two other mod activated might result in redudancy in the best case....or complete inestability on the worse scenario)


Hello, thanks for your report, as Meridian said, the problem is caused by the 'NO PSIONICS MOD', remember that this mod is an overhaul (therefore it is better to play it independently), also consider that this mod changes the behavior of heavy lasers and tanks. therefore, having those other two mods activated could result in redudation at best... or outright instability at worst.
