For the Security Detail commendation to work as it seems to be intended, you would not only have to ignore Base Defence missions as previously mentioned, but also wounded days, unless you're playing some sadistic ruleset that lets you send those poor Purple Hearts out on actual missions. Even with the vanilla health cap of 60-but-really-61, it's not impossible to get knocked down to a single hit point and then get waylaid in the infirmary for 1.5x that amount of time.

Been working on an addition to the existing commendations mod.
Have learned a few tricks and been successful in some interesting combination awards as well.
Few examples below of working awards.  As presented,  this is obviously a continuing WIP with regard to Artwork, criteria and descriptions.  As It stands, currently have 6 completed fully functional new entries, and a grand total of 16 working still requiring artwork and tweaks/testing of criteria and descriptions.

Any suggestions or advise always welcome!
Thanks,

Strong language, such as "F*ckin' bughunt" doesn't belong to (open)xcom.

Understood.

Obviously any officially accepted changes would be subject review before formal admission.  Never my intention for vulgarity, yet a great quote.  I will remove and avoid future usage.

Thanks Mer.

Looking for input on the style of the Cyberkiller commendation art for UFOPedia.  Attached images below.  One style has colored medal and the other more metallic looking.
Thoughts?

For people who would like to use the Commendations mod in TFTD, I am attaching a fix.
All it does is import the required UFO palette, so that it's not just all black.
OXCE+ required.

PS: of course don't forget to change the metadata.yml in Commendations mod... and change master from xcom1 to xcom2, if you want to see it in TFTD mod list

Hello Meridian,

Sorry i had to read a lot to get to commendation for TFTD, i have been way out of practice could you please tell me know to make the mod work in TFTD?
I noted you mentioned OXCE+ so we need to make sure we have that mod enabled, correct?

Thank you,

Xracer

1. change the metadata.yml in Commendations mod... change master from xcom1 to xcom2
2. enable the TFTD fix for Commendations

OXCE+ doesn't exist anymore, use OXCE: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5258.0.html

OXCE is not a mod, it's a custom OpenXcom engine.

I also had to add the "xcom1-ufopaedia.pal" palette to have a perfect visual rendering!  :)
In commendations.rul :
customPalettes:
  - type: CPAL_UFOPAEDIA
    target: PAL_UFOPAEDIA
    file: Resources/Palettes/xcom1-ufopaedia.pal

That's what I said in point 2.
