How far must you be for the Cultists to appear? And will the hyperwave decoder detect UFOs as "Cultist"? (Similar to how it detects the species of aliens inside a UFO?)

May I suggest you clean up your ruleset? I had to manually sift through and clean up all the unnecessary stuff. For example, in 'regions', all that you need is this for any given region:

Code: [Select]
regions:
  - type: STR_NORTH_AMERICA
    missionWeights:
      STR_ALIEN_CULT: 18

But you have it cluttered with a bunch of other stuff which I assume is the result of directly copying from Xcom1Ruleset.rul.

Thanks for pointing that out. Good timing as well, I'd just thought about doing a bit more openxcom modding. I've stuck a cleaned version in the first post.

Cultists can come at any time and your first mission could be a cult mission. They should appear as "Cult Supply" missions in a "Cult" UFO. The race listed will be Sectoid or Ethereal and there will be high-ranking aliens of those species on the mission.

I just started a mission on a landed UFO and got a cultist mission! Seems like it works for now!

I tried to use this, I'm using v0.9 so maybe that's the problem but it will crash at startup and read: "line 2854, column 9 illegal map value"

FWIW.

Sorry about the late reply! If you want to use mods you'll need one of the nightly builds. I'd suggest the latest one. :)

I just wanted to say that the Cultist map is *pure evil* :)
