Upped 2.8, hopefully should be more friendly with the battlescape scoring.
Download at first post as always.
I too need to start doing some testing on this now. I should be able to star a proper campaign soon.

Thanks for the updates! And yes, the battleship was the MIB one. Oh and fwiw: The Waspites/Cybermites are awesome, I really like them! You are very skilled with those unit sprites and graphics! And maps!   :)

Here's the Polish translation of your cover alien mod strings, if you want:

Code: [Select]
  - type: pl-PL
    strings:
      STR_WASPITE: Szerszon
      STR_CYBERMITE: Cybroztocz
      STR_CYBERMITE_TERRORIST: Cybroztocz Terrorysta
      STR_WASPITE_SOLDIER: Szerszon Żołnierz
      STR_WASPITE_MEDIC: Szerszon Medyk
      STR_WASPITE_ENGINEER: Szerszon Inżynier
      STR_WASPITE_NAVIGATOR: Szerszon Nawigator
      STR_WASPITE_LEADER: Szerszon Lider
      STR_WASPITE_COMMANDER: Szerszon Przywódca
      STR_WASPITE_CORPSE: Zwłoki szerszona
      STR_CYBERMITE_CORPSE: Wrak cybroztocza
      STR_WASPITE_AUTOPSY: Sekcja zwłok szerszona
      STR_CYBERMITE_AUTOPSY: Sekcja wraku cybroztocza
      STR_WASPITE_UFOPAEDIA: Szerszoni to elitarni żołnierze i zamachowcy.  Są bardzo agresywni, genetycznie wyinżynierowani i cybernetycznie ulepszeni, co czyni z nich groźnych wrogów.  Ich niezbyt mocna budowa wskazuje jednak raczej na rolę we wsparciu niż w piechocie.  Spiralne urządzenia, które zastępują ich oryginalne ciała, generują pole antygrawitacyjne, które pozwala im unosić się w powietrzu.
      STR_WASPITE_AUTOPSY_UFOPAEDIA: Anatomia tej istoty balansuje na skraju obłędu.  Główny korpus składa się ze spiralnego systemu podtrzymywania życia, połączonego z roślinnym, wyinżynierowanym genetycznie symbiontem.  Do ciała przymocowana jest para mechanicznych ramion oraz owadzia głowa, która zapewne jest jedyną pozostałością po oryginalnym gatunku.  Część roślinna jest wysoce podatna na ogień.
      STR_CYBERMITE_UFOPAEDIA: Ten minirobot to broń terrorystyczna, reprezentująca przewagę inżynierii obcych.  Gdy tylko jego czuły sensor optyczny wykryje cel, podbiega on do niego i atakuje.  Zminiaturyzowany napęd na Elerium jest ustawiony tak, aby wybuchał po odniesieniu poważnych uszkodzeń, przez co strzelanie do cybroztocza jest niebezpieczne dla wszystkich wokół.
      STR_CYBERMITE_AUTOPSY_UFOPAEDIA: Najciekawszą częścią robota jest jego broń, metaliczne żądło połączone z małym zbiornikiem, który prawdopodobnie był wypełniony silną toksyną.  Rdzeń napędu jest zbyt uszkodzony, by w pełni go zbadać, jednak wydaje się być zaprojektowany tak, by był mało odporny na obrażenia i miał tendencje do wybuchania.

If I'm already in the middle of a game, is it safe to upgrade to 2.9 from 2.8? Also, do the waspites actually appear ingame, or just in the free battles?

As a side note, since upgrading to 2.8, I've yet to have a score of -4000! Success!

The only difference is the stats of the new weapons. (sniper rilfe, machine pistol). So it *should* be safe.. You can continue with 2.8 though, I'm also not entirely sold on the new stats.
Waspites should regularly appear ingame (ufos, terror, make base).

And I'm very happy hearing that the score has been "tamed".
I hope though that what SupSuper did in the last build

Make landed UFOs take off after a failed mission.
doesn't break the mod though, my MiB Base ufo especially is meant to stay down even after failed missions.

Well it's a vanilla feature. :P Internally it means the UFO just fast-forwards ahead to the next waypoint.

Here is Slovak translation of your cover alien mod... :)

Code: [Select]
  - type: sk-SK
    strings:
      STR_WASPITE: Waspite
      STR_CYBERMITE: Kybermit
      STR_CYBERMITE_TERRORIST: Kybermit terorista
      STR_WASPITE_SOLDIER: Waspite vojak
      STR_WASPITE_MEDIC: Waspite medik
      STR_WASPITE_ENGINEER: Waspite inžinier
      STR_WASPITE_NAVIGATOR: Waspite navigátor
      STR_WASPITE_LEADER: Waspite vodca
      STR_WASPITE_COMMANDER: Waspite veliteľ
      STR_WASPITE_CORPSE: Mŕtvola waspita
      STR_CYBERMITE_CORPSE: Mŕtvola kybermita
      STR_WASPITE_AUTOPSY: Pitva waspita
      STR_CYBERMITE_AUTOPSY: Pitva kybermita
      STR_WASPITE_UFOPAEDIA: Waspiti sú elitnými teroristickými agentmi a bojovníkmi. Sú veľmi agresívny, geneticky upravení a kyberneticky vylepšení, čo z nich robí hrôzostrašných protivníkov. Ich celková zraniteľnosť však naznačuje úlohu delostrelectva, než úlohu pechoty. Špirálové zariadenie, ktoré nahrádza ich originálne telá, generuje antigravitačné pole umožňujúce tomuto druhu vznášať sa vo vzduchu.
      STR_WASPITE_AUTOPSY_UFOPAEDIA: Anatómia tohto tvora hraničí so šialenstvom. Telo pozostáva zo špirálovitého zariadenia na podporu života kombinovaného so symbiotickou rastlinou, ktorá vznikla za pomoci bioinžinierstva. Telo tvora pozostáva z transplantovaného páru mechanických rúk a hmyzu podobnej hlave, ktorá je pravdepodobne jediným originálnym pozostatkom pôvodného druhu. Rastlinná časť trupu je citlivá na oheň.
      STR_CYBERMITE_UFOPAEDIA: Tento miniatúrny robot je automatickou teroristickou zbraňou a predstavuje vrchol mimozemskej robotiky. Akonáhle výkonný optický senzor spozoruje cieľ, tvor sa proti nemu rozbehne a zaútočí. Miniaturizované elériové jadro je nastavené tak, aby sa pri vyššom poškodení zapálilo a explodovalo. Zabitie tohto tvora je tak veľmi nebezpečné pre kohokoľvek v jeho blízkosti. 
      STR_CYBERMITE_AUTOPSY_UFOPAEDIA: Najvýraznejším rysom tohto neuveriteľne komplexného robota je jeho zbraň - zliatinové žihadlo napojené na miniatúrnu nádrž. Z analýzy zvyškov sa zdá, že je naplnená veľmi silným toxínom. Enregetické jadro je príliš poškodené, čo zabraňuje detailnejšej analýze. Zdá sa však, že je navrhnuté tak aby bolo náchylné na poškodenie. Toto poškodenie potom spôsobí, že robot vybuchne.

Wouldn't it make sense for the MiB to immediately dismantle their base, once its location has been compromised? :)

Well, yes it would. But what if you saw it "fly away"?
:P

It'd be hilarious.

Honestly though, I didn't expect it to have a flying trajectory at all.


EDIT:

Robin, take a look at this thread and Sup's response: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?topic=2132.0

So you might want to trim down the ruleset by removing the vanilla races from the Waspite mod - new alienMissions entries will be merged with the basic ruleset.

Yeah, I'm quite proud of my new maps. Thanks for appreciating.


edit:
Spritesheet for Disruptor Hybrid Armor: complete (actually I'll touch it again a little to adjust some pixels but it's done).
I love this armor.
(This is not part of the MiB/cover alien mods, but who cares).
