Don`t know what to do. The Waspite doesn`t appear in my game with full hyperwave cover.

Do I have to start a completely new game for this?

AFAIK the missions are generated when you start a new game, so if you add the mods to an on-going campaign, you won't get any of them...
..Maybe Warboy1982 can confirm or dismiss this.

Don't know, I don't see anything wrong in the ruleset at quick glance. Have you waited for the month-switch?

Edit:
I just ran a test campaign whit boosted values+hyperwave decoder, and this was the first UFO I got:





Edit 27\05\2014:
Added ES and DE languages to the alien races.

I`ve got problems with the german translation. The game doesn`t get the special german letters Ä/Ö/Ü.

It's probably silly of me to ask, but is everything fine with the UTF-8 encoding?

Should I do this for all the ruleset files?



(now I understand why Dioxine put the extraStrings in a separate file).

the men in black rul file is ANSI
it uses no non-ANSI letters
save it as ANSI and as utf-8 without BOM - compare it with hexeditor its the same!

if you plan do add language strings to such a file later i would always use the UTF-8 (WITH BOM) option
or if you do not want that put at least a non-ANSI letter in the comment line, that way a good editor can recognize that this file is likely UTF-8 without BOM

Yes, the UTF-8 code should be it.

My converted files seem to work well:



Still haven't tested the rest (that's why I've still not uploaded them); I don't have time to do it right now. Maybe tomorrow.

These are really awesome! The waspites remind me of the original cover art for Enemy Unknown, with the bug-eyed aliens that never appear in the game, except the spiral column was organic and they had the twin laser arms. Will be playing this soon for sure!

What about the MiB?

Do they fly with own "UFOs" around the world? Or how are their missions generated?

The only way to make missions currently is by using UFOs.
So:
- MiB fly around with their own "UFOs", which are just regular UFOs;
- MiB do terror missions which are actually modified UFOs;
- MiB build bases that are actually modified UFOs too.

Being all UFOs, they are generated as UFOs, not any differently than an alien UFO.

That's why the MiB mod, despite being the bigger, is the one I'm less happy about: it's a compromise.
