Maybe I misunderstand you but the UFO/TFTD tanks are available on Falko's as templates before you use the HWP builder/splitter
UFO Tanks
TFTD Tanks

No idea if the 2x2 Merger is too hard to use or doesn't supply the expected results. Feel free to tell me if you got any issues.
I am currently rewriting the code some as I am creating other helper programs for myself. Also I had a look at how pythonanywhere could potentially work. No idea if a free plan is good enough but I want to try anyway.

The truth is, I completely forgot about it... :-[

Still, would be nice to have all tools in one place. ;)

I hope it comes back soon, without Falko's tools some aspects of modding are pretty much unfeasible.

The site has been down several times before, and every time was nerve wrecking... And yet, we still don't have any alternative. :(

Thanks a lot for the effort! I still use it from time to time even after all these years :)

Thank you! :)

EDIT:
Falko, I'm having issues with the sprite combiner. I am trying to load the attached zip to combine the sprites, but nothing happens. Tested on Firefox and Opera. Could you please check?

"  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/PIL/Image.py", line 1447, in putpalette
    raise ValueError("illegal image mode")"
is in the errorlog
first guess would be indexed/palletebased png instead of RGBA png?

Thanks for the response, Falko! Hmm, was probably indexed. I no longer have these resources, since I did it manually.
So, should they be indexed or in RGB? I'd think indexed, but who knows... :)

Sorry for double posting, but do you guys also have issues with the website? It appears down.

Assuming you are referring to the "https://falkooxc.pythonanywhere.com/" sites (e.g. falko's mod tools).

There was some mention on the discord about that site.
Just checked. And indeed it seems to be down (or more likely, expired account).

Actually I was referring to falkooxc2.pythonanywhere.com/ (the new engine), but it appears to be down as well.
I really hope to see these tools back - they are absolutely crucial to modding units.

pythonanywhere switches to a newer python version end of this month
Quote
"classic" was
released a very long time ago, and is based on Ubuntu 14.04, with support for
Python versions up to 3.5. Our most recent system image, "haggis", is
based on 20.04 with Python supported up to 3.10
a switch 3.4 to 3.10 schould work fine
i added the source code of my site (including very old copies of javascript libraries)
this can be added to any python capable webserver

the source for the older site
modtester https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,2221.msg22099.html
sprite tools https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,2349.msg23573.html
language editor  https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,2862.msg30686.html
world editor https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,2835.msg30054.html
most of the function of the old site is integrated into the "new" (falkooxc2) site .. not sure if anyone even uses the old tools
but here ist the source code for the site

Falko, you are one of the central pillars of X-Com community. Thank you for your constant support!

But I still think it would be good to have a desktop app for these things. Which will always work... :)
