It says "STR_" in front of every new city, nation, and country added in this mod. I'm sure that i'm doing something wrong, but what am I doing wrong?

Are you using the latest nightly build? If you do, make sure you play in a language this game and mod supports. If you don't, do. :)

OK... Frankly, I haven't downloaded this mod yet. :P So I asked the obvious, but it's not the case. Sorry, you will need someone who actually played it...

I had the same problem. My save died when I removed it, so I had to start over.

Would be nice to have the extra locations without more nations funding you. The Council of Funding Nations is a very nice complicated read btw.

It's using the old language specification 'English' instead of en-US or en-GB change that and it should be fine.

Is this mod dead or will we see some more activity on it? I loved how it added depth to the game beyond caring for your funding nations!

Give me some time to relocate my files on this mod; I kind of drifted away from it -- there were a few bugs in the implementation because I pushed the (then) game engine of OXCOM way beyond it's limits -- now that the programmers have fixed the engine issues; I'll get around to implementing a properly balanced version of this with actual nation income levels rather than simple cut n pastes.

PSA: Always back up your stuff. I lost a lot of XCOM modding stuff that I had placed on a SD card that one day went walky from my laptop.  :(

Here's a kind of sort of complet-ish improved nations mod.

Basic formula I used to determine pricing was:

All nations contribute a flat fee of 75 to the XCOM project.

Then they're assessed a basic GDP contribution fee of their GDP divided by 125. E.g. a nation with $7,751 per capita GDP would have to pay 62.01.

Next up is population contribution fee; population divided by 5,000,000. A nation with 1.2 billion people would then have to pay approximately 240.

Finally there's special fees:

NUCLEAR POWER: 135 (Known nuclear powers like US, UK, France, Israel, India, Pakistan, China, Russia)

SHARED NUCLEAR POWER: 62.5 (People who share nukes under dual NATO control -- Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Turkey)

It's important to note that 1999 was a long time ago regarding economic growth -- Russia was still in the dumps following the breakup of the USSR; along with many former WARPAC states -- Germany was still swallowing up Eastern Germany, etc.

Is it possible to make it so that terror sites in a certain location use an unique tileset? I'm thinking of VOSTOK station and such in the Antartic, aliens hunting scientists on the ice.

Terror site is terror site, it cannot be changed. However, it is possible to make a new alien mission where crash/landing site contains civilians dependant on the terrain.
