Returning after a long hiatus, what's new?
« on: March 08, 2024, 06:23:05 am »
Hi there. Returning to Open XCOM after a few years away. Was wondering how I might catch up on what I've missed around here? Like updates to the project, added modding options, etc. For OXCE I know that with each new version Meridian posts a list of changes/features added. That's pretty convenient as one can read through the main thread to see what's new with OXCE over a long period.

Does a similar thing exist for the main OXC? Sorry if I'm missing it. I checked out the "changelog" from the latest nightly download and that only lists updates/changes through 1.0, lol. The latest nightly page itself only has the most recent 10 versions and not a lot of details.

Thanks!

In OXC mainly bug fixes, for ground breaking changes look for OXCE or even BrutalAI fork that drastically change how AI work.

Thanks Yankes! Yeah, I'll definitely be reading up on the new stuff in OXCE, it looks pretty cool. I noticed the system where you can improve stats by earning commendations. I always enjoyed commendations, so that seems like an interesting mechanic. I'll take a look at BurtalAI as well. I assumed that was a mod, didn't realize it was its own build.
