Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!


Updated! Much happy! Serious Awesome!


I've figured out far more Commonwealth style names for the three new awards.
Medal of Heroism - Gollop Cross. Coz hey without the Gollop, XCOM wouldn't exist.
Hellraiser Medal - Inferno Star. Also, anyone with one would be unofficially nicknamed some form of pyro, firebug or nutcase.
Distinguished Service - Order of the Hammer.


I'm really reluctant to use the names of specific medals, like Medal of Honour, Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Medal or Cross, etc. It cheapens those who earned the things in my mind.
Also, small things!
In the distinguished service description you have soldirs, needs an 'e'.
EN-GB is missing both strings for the Distinguished service award.

Oh silly me, I did totally forget to add those strings! I will do that some time today maybe. I like the names you're suggesting, so I will also change those.

Shoes,


(Preface, I'm kinda hopeless with words, so bear with me.)


I've only just started learning how to code, starting with python. So, although I wish I could help with coding and awesomeness, I can't.


So, is there any chance you can merge your mod again with the latest nightly?


When they changed the options GUI, it introduced one small bug. That being not being able to rename craft. I reported it and it's fixed (thanks SupSuper!), but your mod doesn't have the fix.


If I could merge it myself, I would and not bother you about it.

uhh. I'm a little lost here, what happened? >_<
Do I need to download the latest nightly build first or what?
Also, no mods are appearing for free battle except my custom craft.
I think I activated all my mods >_<

Download latest nightly, extract and overwrite. Then install the latest version of mod.


What you're seeing is the the old language file from the mod would replace the one in the language folder. Shoes has separated his ruleset out into its own file which incorporates all the language strings in en-US and en-GB.


Any problems, just yell.

Huh, weird.


Maybe a full reinstall? Shoes might have a better idea.


I'm out of ideas atm.

Right, that's okay, I'll continue my construction on the older version. Can't field test equipment without quick battle, my mods work in campaign mode for some reason though....

New update : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/234369005/OXC/04022014%20Commendations%20Mod.zip

I have a feeling this will fix your problems judging by all the shader files I was seeing that are new. Hope it does at least!

I updated the .exe with the new nightly. I also have an untested batch of changes : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/234369005/OXC/04212014%20Commendations%20Mod%20UNTESTED%20MORE%20STUFF.zip

In short, I added a new category of medals (kills per mission, kills per turn), improved the multiple-kills aspect, improved saving, and added 5 or 6 new commendations. New commendations don't have their own sprites yet, and I haven't tested it in the least!! :D

edit: Lot's of little bugs, but seems playable... :3

Up to 23 commendations now! Also, Soldiers no longer save each mission they're on (thus saving the same mission like 30 times per mission), and other little things like that. Save files should be smaller in general. Not that it really matters?

I am up for suggestions for commendations too. Most of the big ones have been done I think, or at least have the ability to be quickly done.

Very interesting in trying out this mod.  I think I have everything installed correctly and the game seems to run.  I can even click on the "Record" button for a soldier and get to the various pages of information.  However, if I click on the "Record" button for a soldier in the Memorial page, the game crashes.  No error messages, just a "circle of death" and then windows says OXC has stopped running.  Anybody else experiencing this or have I done something wrong?

I had another mod installed, but I disabled it and still have the problem.

Thanks for any help.

P.S.  I've got the latest version as of 4-30.

Oh yeah, memorial page... I am both surprised and not surprised it's crashing, because I coded anything to make sure it worked :D I will look into it this weekend.

edit; now fixed :D
