[MAPDATA] [RESEARCH] Alien Reproduction.
« on: December 01, 2013, 11:10:06 am »
this is a rather simple mod, it makes the small yellow cylinders (like in the command center in alien bases) recover as alien reproduction. the research and ufopaedia side already existed, this just enables access to it.

This should be part of the regular build.

Obviously it was meant to be in the game, but someone from Microprose slept there.

At leat it should be officialy in the game with an option to disable it.

I just check my own backup archive of DVDs, sadly it appears I didn't think to download this Mod when I had the chance.

Being able to recover an item from those yellow cylinders could potentially be useful for Modding.
(Is this already included in the Final Mod Pack?)

If possible could you please re-upload the mod Warboy1982?


I wonder how many of these cylinders are usually found in each alien base...

This "May" be the file you are looking for Kzer-Za:
https://openxcom.org/download/oldmods/Reproduction_9628309a.zip

I found it via this post:
When the mod portal was facing issues, I feared the worst and ran a web scraper to grab every file I could just in case the worst happened. And well, it did. :P The result is I managed to collect all the downloads before they were forever lost. Originally I was gonna save this for migrating to the new portal after careful curation, but given the delays on that front and repeated requests for lost mods, I decided to provide them here:

https://openxcom.org/download/oldmods/

This is an archive of all the working downloads on the www.openxcom.com portal as of 10th October 2017. Only files that were publicly available were archived, any files that were deleted by their authors or unavailable due to server issues will still be lost. In case of duplicate filenames, you will have to figure out which one is the "correct version". Checking the Date Modified might help, although it seems old files all had their timestamp wiped in a server move in 2016.

Disclaimer
  • This is a last resort for the sake of preservation. Only use these mods if there are no other public versions available.
  • All files are provided as-is with no support or associated mod page. Any form of documentation or instructions will have to be in the files.
  • The contents may be broken, corrupt, outdated, or otherwise a non-functional mess, with no guarantee of support from the original authors.
Any mod authors that want their old work removed just let me know.


Edit:
The Mod's Readme.txt file has the following in it:
Code: [Select]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alien Reproduction enabler for OpenXcom
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:

 Simple addon to OpenXCom to allow access to the alien reproduction research topic, by changing some map data.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

to install:

simply extract to your data folder (e.g., X:\OpenXcom\Data)
add the following line int the rulesets section of your options.cfg:

  - Reproduction

*note: for now,you need openxcom 0.9 with the latest git build -> http://openxcom.org/index.php/git-builds/
       Options.cfg can be found from your documents/OpenXcom folder.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This does seem to be the Mod in question, or at least something similar.

It definitely appears to be altering U_Base which I believe is a type of terrain tile in the alien base, so the chances that this is actually the file are pretty high.


Reproduction.rul
Code: [Select]
MCDPatches:
  - type: U_BASE
    data:
      - MCDIndex: 29
        specialType: 6

I'll attach the file to this post as a redundancy.
