Awesome work. I like the tftd interface graphics, I imagine the yellow-greens...putting around in one of those tiny yellow mini subs at less than walking speed at the bottom of the ocean.
And the harpoon rifle is a sun bleached yellow-green super-soaker.

Just go on any late-game mission and you'll have no problem finding Lobstermen. :P If you go to T'leth you should also find Xarquid.

Calcinites are tricky as they rarely show up, maybe with some modified game to get them to spawn?

I only saw Calcinites in terror on passanger ship on higher difficulty (one was always in the centre room on first stage). They happened in second-third month in higher difficulties. Unfortunately, I don't have any save :(

Thanks to @Warboy1982 help, there's a progress in combined geoscape - there are no holes in it.

And one combined arms screenshot :)

It's amazing how many people never update their libraries :)

Regardless, it's great work.

Sometimes a distro is slow, so you have to force an update from source...

and then you find out that the distro library was compiled with (or without) a bunch of specific distro options, and now your gui is broken. So you have to go grab another machine and research the problem, only to find out the new version of the library you care about is going to require a new version of another library ... and the chain continues until you give up rather than attempting to recompile the entire gui, just to get an updated version of libinsignificant.

I'm not bitter.

This is definitely something that I'm looking forward to.  As a developer, is there something I can help with here?

You could try to compile and run it, check colour of the screens in geoscape and battlescape. You could also make 'GUIstyle' an option in 'advanced' options menu.

https://github.com/AndO3131/OpenXcom/tree/TFTD_Support

I've attached files I use. Currently I'm slowly doing geoscape.

P.S. Added better UFO2_openxcom.zip

I'm getting a number of merge conflicts pulling AndO3131/OpenXcom into my tree.  Most are resolved easily, but what is the relationship between the BattlescapeState::_btnZeroTUs ImageButton in SupSuper/master and the BattlescapeState::_btnReserve0TU ImageButton in AndO3131/TFTD_Support?  How are you and Warboy coordinating your efforts?

I haven't merged it yet. I'll look into it now. It's merged, but some problems remain.

RL issues stopped progress on this mod, but everything I've done is on github. Currently battlescape is somewhat complete; next is geoscape.

https://github.com/AndO3131/OpenXcom/tree/TFTD_Support

Together with @Yankes we tried to introduce 32 bit surfaces to Openxcom, but I have problems getting this feature to work properly - I hope that sometime in the future engine could read unpaletted images.
