I've gone and goofed (I think). The language file I uploaded is the standard one.
New one attached.


Also, I've noticed that language stuff can be added at the bottom of your ruleset file under 'extraStrings'.

Tested game, I can now end mission and I now get a lovely debriefing screen.
Just noticed, if a soldier gets more than 3 kills/stuns in one mission, the info box that pops up when you click on the mission (the mission details), doesn't fit. Can scrolling be fitted?


Here's to helping!

If you're saying the little text info box can't fit more than 3 lines and that it is not scrolling, then there is a little bug to investigate. The scrolling should be a non issue; it could be I copy pasted some code incorrectly. Thanks again!

Me again.


In the Soldier Record:


It seems the listings for Kills and Missions reset every month. (Click on the kills button to see list of kills by weapon, of alien type, of alien rank. Click on the missions button to see missions by location, type, ufo.)


Only the last mission of the previous month appears to match up with mission details info box. The previous two appear in the mission details info box, but their stats aren't in the other Soldier record screens.


Save attached.


I really like this mod, so you'll most likely be hearing from me lots as I find stuff.

Is this the issue you were talking about? https://imgur.com/6bBeJCl

I will fix this then look into the "rests every month" thing you mentioned.

That's it. Sometimes there is a scroll button for more than 3 lines but often it isn't there. And when you do scroll down, the very bottom line can hardly be seen.


I like looking at nice big lists of my guys being awesome. :D

I toyed with the window size so things are more proper: https://imgur.com/tlbkJ6L

I also found the source of the bug you mentioned about stats disappearing: I wasn't saving them! I am gonna find out if its better to save them or to recalculate them. I am inclined to recalculate them, so nothing will be lost if that's the case.

edit: updated the download link with a fresh .exe with those two fixes. Lemme know when you find more!

(insert happy dance here)

- Mission details now display correctly.
- Stats in Kills and Missions are now there and very shiny. ;D
- Minor Niggle - Long weapon names get cut off in mission details info box. Screenshot attached. My grenadiers happen to be little trigger-happy.

I will increase the size of the window some more, or I will look to see what text wrap will do. Text wrapping might be a more long term solution.

I also appreciate you helping me out like this! It's fun to know someone is actually playing with the mod :)

I would like to use that mod but fear, I produce a crash, when replacing my working ruleset with yours.

How is it possible to play with the latest nightly build AND using your ruleset?

If you didn't mod your ruleset, I am pretty sure you can copy paste. I don't think there have been changes to the ruleset. I am working on moving my rules into its own ruleset.

When is your game crashing? Is it on launch? Is it complaining about DLLs?

Excuse me, I should`ve explained.

I was only worrying. When you`ve made your own ruleset, I`ll immediately use your mod.

Hm, any room for additional information like age, height, weight, cv and all?

Hopefully before the end of the weekend!

Most of the work needed to do that would be laying down the foundation, but it could be done the same way that stats are determined, even defined via ruleset or something. Maybe after 1.0 comes out I could look into adding age/height/weight. CV would be tricky because it's more than just a random number, but doable too I suppose.

I loved that one feature in Xenonauts: each soldier also had a nationality (well, they sort of do here, it just isn't displayed) and, lo and behold, their original military unit (for example SAS) and combat experience (for example Afghanistan). I think it really added to the characters and would love to see something similar here.

Oh yeah, must've got it from watching Xenonauts or Silent Storm.  I suppose, its just rpg value, like this guy is an urban combat specialist, that guy is a desert fighter, so and so trained in the arctic and all...
