Also, man cyberdisks suuuuuck unless you're packing
Spoiler:
flamethrowers! I'm watching Lewis and Ben save the world in parallel with my playthrough, thank goodness they tried the flamer.  My first terror mission was on the railyard map, and the entire rail line itself was a cyberdisk kill zone with 4-5 cybers. Even once I realized it was the flamethrower I needed, I still lost 6 troops. Stocking three of them on the skyraider from now on! Maybe packing incendiary ammo will work too? Don't tell me :)

Also loving the larger office towers and the labyrinthine pathing, requiring lots of on-the-fly decisions and tactics.

- New Hybrid graphics.
- New Jungle landing block.
- Overhauled bigobs to remove negative indexes.
- Increased Auto Cannon's aim range.
- Fixed FRNITURE death tiles association.
- Fixed some fences.

I'll give feedback on any changes I notice from 2.2d.  I'm in May of year one on my first playthrough (on Experienced- I've beaten the vanilla game once like 10 years ago) and I have never had this much fun playing xcom. Man, the fricking minigun is amazing amounts of fun. As long as you get the scouts [way] out of the way first.

I can't see the error message anymore. It crashes immediately now. Is there any error log i can find? It was about a file in the final mod pack.

I think you're not using the latest FMP version, do you have FMP 2.2e (released 7 days ago)? You need this version for the newest OpenXcom.

I want the MIB to become stronger gradually during the game (I have a lot of problems in battles because of their tanks, the game because of this is not fun).

I found their ship on the ground, but when trying to land, the game collapsed.

Please tell me what I need to fix, so that my new races work normally.

Instead of modding the tanks out, have you considered heavy explosives? A few of those always did the trick for me.

The answer to every and any early game threat like those Exalt tanks is rookies with horrible stats you can throw away charging them with flamethrowers. It's been working well in my S-Human run. Cyberdiscs, spitters, Exalt tanks, all toasted in 1 or auto shots. But wait, why can't we build alloy tanks?

I know how to kill them (actually I didn’t try a flamethrower, thanks), that’s not the point. The fact is that MIB are the most powerful enemies in the game at this stage (0-6 month). Not just the strongest, but much, much stronger than others. Fighting with any other race is just an easy walk, and fighting with an MIB is a real challenge. There is clearly no balance. That is the main problem that I would like to fix.

Well, they use alien weapons but have human stats... So this outcome is inevitable.
This is balanced by the fact that they appear rarely, unless the RNG says otherwise (as in your case, it appears).
Still, I find it surprising that you think the MiBs are tougher than Mutons and Ethereals.

Mutons and Ethereals have not yet appeared, but I am sure that they (at least Mutons) will not give me as much trouble. The reason for all is their tanks. Each such tank is two times stronger than Cyberdisk. Even before the first month ended, the terror mission with four tanks appeared! And since then they appear 2-3 times more often than all other races (while there were only Sectoids, Floaters and Snakemans and once Hybrids) put together. If you look at the numbers that are responsible for the frequency of occurrence of the MIB, then it is not clear to me why they should appear rarely. They appear in accordance with these numbers. I have already reduced them by 30% for my game, but in order to achieve a better balance, I think it is necessary to ensure that their tanks do not appear from the very beginning of the game. I see that the growth of the force of the race has already been implemented for MIB by creating two races: MIB and LATE_MIB, I just want to expand this mechanics, can you tell me how to add more types of races for MIB so that they work normally? I tried to figure it out, but I can't catch the logic. It is interesting to me to understand this, not only for balancing the MIBs, but also because it is an excellent mechanic.

Well, in short, you need to make a niew alienRace and then add it to the appropriate alienMissions. For more info, go here.
