READ THIS before you post/download a mod
« on: October 31, 2013, 10:15:08 am »
This section is for functional mods only. to be considered functional, the mod must meet or exceed the following criteria:

  • it must have a download available.
  • it must work for all intents and purposes. should it require testing, please tag it with [WIP] or [BETA].
  • it must not crash the game on startup.
  • screenshots should be considered necessary where applicable.

Please tag all posts in this thread appropriately, with square brackets and capital letters, to allow ease of searching in future.

How to install mods:
  • You need nightly to try these mods, they will not work on older versions. Check the thread/readme for specific versions/extended/etc.
  • If there are no instructions, you probably just need to extract the contents to your OpenXcom Mods folder (Documents\OpenXcom\mods) and then enable the mod in the Options > Mods screen. If there's no mods folder, you have the wrong version.

If your mod is in active development it MUST be tagged as such, or better, released in the WIP forum.
having a thread in both forums is fine, but releasing experimental and/or game-breaking material here is a big no-no.
