For those wondering where I have been for the past several months, well did you know that launching a book is really hard and time consuming? So basically my time and creative energy has been monopolized on getting my book launched, getting a website set up, design work for marketing materials, etc. However, that does not mean that I have abandoned this mod. I always come back to XCom, and I always end up fiddling with this mod.

I have been working on a few things.

But I haven't really had time to sit down and add enough to merit an update. I will post more info when I start working on this mod again. If I can ever find time, I will try to sit down and iron out of the lot of the bugs others have found first.

It's anything that has incendiary explosions and a hit/explosion sound defined - the game has an explosion sound hard coded in based on power, and it conflicts with defining a new one.  See my earlier post for a fix:

Experienced a CTD when attempting to fire the hybrid cannon with the chem (incendiary shells), happens on hitting the target.  I've attached a save where it occurs, just use the selected soldier to fire on the Muton he's facing.

I was able to fix the CTD by changing the lines for the hit sound/animation for STR_HB_CANNON_CLIP2 to
Code: [Select]
    hitSound: 0
    hitAnimation: 0

Is there any way to implement only visual changes with no effect on gameplay. Because I use FMP and it's not working correct with this mod

Depends which visual changes do you mean exactly.

The short answer is yes, as long as you're willing to write your own mod to do it.

Hey, this mod is amazing, I got it to work a while back. Problem is though, I can't find where I can activate the TFTD manufacturing rules. Can somebody please help?

Someone should do an LP of this mod.  I'd do it but my OS is old.

I learned this the hard way: you should hoard alloys.  Then invest in a large lab so you can crack the codex in time.

I have a suggestion for the color/camoflage variants of armors: if you set them to all have the same storeItem, then you don't need to manufacture different colors; one item lets you use any color of the armor.

Error received. STR_MUTON_GUARD not found. Game attached.

EDIT: I looked through the code. I couldnt find an entry for STR_MUTON_GUARD in items.rul. I intend to add the below. I will keep on searching.

  - type: STR_MUTON_GUARD
    size: 0.0
    recover: true
    liveAlien: true
    costSell: 65000

EDIT #2: I looked through ufopedia.rul. I could see an entry for STR_MUTON_GUARD but no entry for the corpse. I understand from looking through the code that the intention is for the MUTON GUARD to only be accessible during the final Cydonia mission. In that case, I propose the below - remove them from the free research available to the medics. I doubt there is any weapon dependent on meeting them. Do confirm if there is.

EDIT #3: Following on from the second edit, I have disabled / commented out the STR_MUTON_GUARD string under the medics. This should solve the problem.

I have advanced and am now in Jan 2000. The Aegis, the third generation fighter, seems to have a very short fuel range. Is this for real or does it need a fix?

EDIT: Created mod to change capacity. Did below changes.

  - type: STR_XCF3
    fuelMax: 40
    refuelRate: 10

EDIT 2: Didnt work. I guess I have to look at how speed, fuel and the formula works.

https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Refueling

EDIT 3: Noticed no infopedia text for Shock (Stun) weapons... There is also a high number of infiltrations. At the moment, all my big payers have been subverted. I suspect that is why you added the money contracts.

XenoOps + newest nightlies = ?
« Reply #328 on: May 01, 2017, 06:04:49 am »
Is this mod compatible with newest nightlies, e.g. April 2017?
If no, which ruleset/resources patches must be applied?

XOps, you still working on this project?

I read your post above. What's the book about? Sci-Fi?
