[MAPS] Solar's new UFOs
« on: May 16, 2014, 09:50:24 pm »
Time for my first ego mod! (I mean, one with my name on it. Because there are many map mods.)

This mod adds 3 new UFOs to the game. They are completely new, not just new maps.


This is the Sentry Ship, a small but reasonably tough opponent. The other two you'll have discover yourself; one is really big (see attachment)!

WARNING: If you're using my Alien Armoury Expanded, this mod will not be compatible; there will be a special version of it added to the next alien Armoury Expanded version.

EDIT: A crash was fixed, file replaced.

EDIT: Map fixes.

EDIT: Updated to the current X-Com version.

This one is nice, really good job !

(I just hope there is a door to enter it  ???)

Do you think you added enough spawn nodes for my Hell mod ?

No. Some things must remain undiscovered, so that you would have to work on it :)

Similarly to your Alien Armory mod, I made a czech translation for this one.

Code: [Select]
  - type: cs-CZ
    strings:
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP: Útočník
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP: Pátrač
      STR_LAB_SHIP: Vědecká loď
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Útočníci jsou postaveni k jedinémů účelu, ničení pozemských letadel, včetně našich stíhačů.  Na svou velikost jsou extrémně dobře vybaveny, ale mají jen malou posádku."
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Toto malé UFO je určeno k pátracím a hlídkovacím činnostem.  Je vybaveno pro boj a bude výzvou pro naše stíhače."
      STR_LAB_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Vědecké lodě jsou velké plavidla, určené k hlavním výzkumným a sběračským operacím. Mnohem větší nez Kombajny, jsou vybaveny k provádění komplexních experimentů přímo na palubě.  Posádka je početná a vcelku dobře vybavená."

And here is another slovak translation...

Code: [Select]
  - type: sk-SK
    strings:
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP: Stíhač
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP: Hliadková loď
      STR_LAB_SHIP: Laboratórna loď
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Mimozemské stíhačky sú postavené za cieľom zničiť pozemské vzdušné sily, vrátane stíhačov XCom. Vzhľadom na svoju veľkosť sú extrémne dobre vyzbrojené, avšak ich posádka je obmedzená."
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Úlohou tohto UFO je sledovanie a hliadkovanie. Je plne vyzbrojené pre boj a bude výzvou pre našich stíhačov."
      STR_LAB_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Laboratórne lode sú veľké plavidlá, ktorých úlohou je hlavne výskum a zberné operácie. Omnoho väčšie ako kombajny, sú vybavené pre uskutočňovanie komplexných experimentov priamo na palube plavidla. Majú početnú, dobre vybavenú posádku."

French Translation (your file is already converted to UTF8, nice !)

Code: [Select]
  - type: fr
    strings:
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP: Chasseur
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP: Sentinelle
      STR_LAB_SHIP: Vaisseau Laboratoire
      STR_FIGHTER_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Ces chasseurs ont été élaborés exclusivement dans le but de contrer la flotte aérienne terrestre, incluant nos intercepteurs.  Extrêmement bien armés pour leur petite taille, ils abritent à leur bord un équipage très réduit."
      STR_SENTRY_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Ce petit OVNI a pour mission l'observation et la surveillance.  Il est néanmoins armé pour la guerre, et représente un danger à ne pas sous-estimer pour nos intercepteurs."
      STR_LAB_SHIP_UFOPEDIA: "Les Vaisseaux Laboratoires ont pour objectif principal la recherche et la 'moisson extraterrestre'.  Plus grands que les Moissonneurs, ils sont équipés pour mener des expériences complexes à leur bord.  Leur équipage est conséquent et relativement bien armé."

Yeah, there's already a bunch of languages with non-English characters.

Now, an update! I added one new ship to the collection. Its story is a bit funny: when I was making the interception picture for the Lab Ship, I made a mistake and made it way too small (16 m across instead of 30). Since making the actual battle map is about as much work as that little picture (well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but you get my thinking), I just made a completely new map for that failed pic. Because more UFOs is always better! ;)

The update is in the opening email. Translation updates for the new ship would be nice! :)

The new UFO does not have any ufopedia text to translate though. Just the name :)
