I delete around 1/3 of all my downloads, right now I have 46 files and previously I had around 80.
I could barely open my page and now its usually work with long loading but work (except when I try open your page then any page on portal work).

It worked! Well, I had to upload the file twice, since the first one generated a non-working link, but it seems okay now.

So, new version is ready for download:

Fixed a problem with the Corridor and rebalanced the shotgun.

@Solarius Scorch.

Thanks. The download works now. Good! 1.9.3c, here I come...

Just one question:
Wouldn't it be consistent if both the Pump Action and the Laser Shotgun followed the same ranges as the starting Shotgun?
I see they are still in the mod with both ranges set to four (4) and dropoff four (4). It is only the one (STR_SHOTGUN) that has gotten the new stats.

At lest the Pump Action should have the new stats, because the Hybrids use them. Hybrid weapons are weaker than regular XCom weapons as is. Leaving them with the old ranges for Pump Action would be too much of a handicap for them, don't you think?


Sincerely
Kjotleik

I'll be honest, this is a bit of a test run. If the shotgun gets good reviews, I'll apply these settings to other similar weapons too.
And here I thought nobody would notice. :(

I think you may be using some other version of English. This mod works with en-US and en-GB.

Hmm, hard to say... The language file is there.
Anyone else has problems with the strings?

Hm.

English (UK) works for me. No problems.
But I haven't researched Alien Alloy Ammunition yet, so I only got the one clip in the UFOpaedia so far. I started a new game with 1.9.3c.

I'll be sure to let you know if it changes... (but maybe not this weekend, as I'm busy preparing to move to a new apartment).

I can confirm that the strings for the Sniper Rifle are missing in the en-US language, but not the en-GB language. I checked the ruleset myself:

Code: [Select]
  - type: en-US
    strings:
    ...
      STR_ROCKET_PACK: "Rocket Pack"
      STR_ADVANCED_ROCKET_LAUNCHER: "Advanced Rocket Launcher"
      STR_ADVANCED_ROCKET_LAUNCHER_UFOPEDIA: "Utilizing the Alien Optical Processor, the Advanced Rocket Launcher can be aimed faster than the original design and is able to fire guided missiles."
      STR_EXPLOSIVE_AMMO_UFOPEDIA: "Explosive ammunition causes violent detonation on hit, which is destructive to both enemies and the environment."
      STR_INCENDIARY_AMMO_UFOPEDIA: "Incendiary ammunition releases flammable agent on hit, causing immediate immolation of the target."
      STR_INCENDIARY_AMMO: "Incendiary Ammo"
      STR_EXPLOSIVE_AMMO: "Explosive Ammo"
      STR_ADVANCED_FIREARMS: "Advanced Firearms"
      STR_ADVANCED_FIREARMS_UFOPEDIA: "Working upon the most recent advances in human engineering, a number of weapon designs was developed to give the X-Com troops more firepower and flexibility on the battlefield."
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE: "Tactical Sniper Rifle"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_HE_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle HE Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_AA_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle Alloy Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_UFOPEDIA: "This heavy sniper rifle sacrifices mobility for accuracy and power."
      STR_STORMTROOPER_ARMOR: "Stormtrooper Armor"

vs

Code: [Select]
  - type: en-GB
    strings:
    ...
      STR_ROCKET_PACK: "Rocket Pack"
      STR_ADVANCED_ROCKET_LAUNCHER: "Advanced Rocket Launcher"

      STR_SNIPER_RIFLE: "Sniper Rifle"
      STR_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP: "Sniper Rifle Clip"
      STR_SNIPER_RIFLE_AA_CLIP: "Sniper Rifle Alloy Clip"
      STR_SNIPER_RIFLE_UFOPEDIA: "This precision rifle is more powerful than a standard rifle and has excellent accuracy. However, it is harder to use and has a low rate of fire."
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE: "Tactical Sniper Rifle"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_HE_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle HE Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_AA_CLIP: "Tactical Sniper Rifle Alloy Clip"
      STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_UFOPEDIA: "This 12.7-mm caliber sniper rifle sacrifices mobility for accuracy and power."
      STR_STORMTROOPER_ARMOR: "Stormtrooper Armour"

You can see the difference between the two codes above the Heavy Sniper Rifle entries.


I probably didn't have to prove it, but it's still good to save Solarius Scorch some time, right?

(Another quick note: while searching in Notepad++, I found that the Sniper AA Ammo string for the italian language (it-IT) is missing, too.)

Thanks! No idea how it happened, since it's all there in my copy, but... whatever. I'll fix it.

Was it there before? Because Italian is quite incomplete.

Solarius,

you really do not need to keep seperate strings for en-US and  en-GB, the differences are marginal at best.
Keep things simple and clean:

Code: [Select]
###BEGIN EXTRASTRINGS
extraStrings:

##BEGIN en-US
  - type: en-US
    strings: &STRINGS_EN
      STR_OPENXCOM: "OpenXcom - Hardmode Expansion Mod{NEWLINE}v0.99.3 by hellrazor"
      STR_XCOM_CRAFT_ARMAMENT: "BRIEFINGS & NEWS & MISC"
...
##END en-US

##BEGIN en-GB
  - type: en-GB
    strings: *STRINGS_EN
##END en-GB
###END EXTRASTRINGS

OK, so whom should I offend, the Americans or the British? :P
Because I would have to discontinue one version.
