you can make a special rulset compatibility patch that uses STR from your mod and STR from cover alien/gazer mods . the game will combine them if all those strings exist at load time. im pretty sure ive seen it happen with mib overriding or using ammo from a different mod simply by calling the same string name.   

but either way is good to know so i don't use those mods i was gonna try it out .

Actually i was thinking of doing it the same as i did it with the Terrain Pack. Haveing a additional ruleset, which is compatible with my mod, there wouldn't be many changes, only in the missions and when they show up first but i haven't had the time to take a look at the ruleset.
I am also not sure if Gazer and Cover aliens do have spritesheets or spirtedirectories, which is a problem for Linux / Mac OS users, but this can be resolved easily. But as i did say before first Cydonia Mission  and bugs :)

optionally you can simply ask permission to repack cover/gazer and simply have a rulset that enables them otherwise are just there taking space which is no biggie is like 1 mb mod :)

I guess that would be the way to go to ensure functionality everywhere.
But the prioritylist states other things first!

Hi there folks.

Since this Mod is nearly finished, and i am only doing some minor adjustments and trying them out (mainly Alien Alloy Costs for Armor and Money Costs, Heavy Laser playing around).
And so far if have not been running into any further errors.
It would be kinda nice to get some feedback of your ingame experiences and some suggestion what could change for better balance (but in general more challenging gameplay).

I also got requests to add support for some more races then the vanilla ones (Waspites and Gazers), would like them to be included as an extraruleset?
I am not considering adding new weapons, but if requested that also could be done if need be.

I have started to play around with a first Version of a 3 stage Cydonia Mission, which i will not include into this mod, but it will be a seperate one.

Just an observation in my current game but I thought I wud check it out with u. All 4 alien bases that have got up and running are Floater, not that I mind that, but is this normal? Also snakemen missions are in a very short non existent supply, is this just by sheer chance?

I've thoroughly enjoyed ur mod as Ethereals are a bit of a nightmare now which is as it shud be, a large scout of them was close to a disaster for me. However I'm almost @ end game, just waiting to get a commander to unlock "cydonia or bust" and get my troops a good bit stronger psi wise before attempting that mission. Have u any other ideas planned for the future?

Missions are picked randomly, races also even thou raceweight and missionweight increase the tendency to get picked, so yes it is by chance.

Released an experimental Version 1.4.2 which is not avaible on the Mod Portal for now.

Changes:
All technology research Cost have been doubled! Interrogations still cost the same.
- Incorporated Armored Vest Mod with modified Costs and Stats.
- Further increased Cost for X-Com Armors (Cost in $ are now 4 times vanilla, Alien Alloy Cost Doubled for Power and Flying Suit)
- Heavy Laser can now Fire 2 Aimed shots per turn (it is now really a good Sniper weapon, if you put a Soldier with 70+ accuracy on it)
- Taser Pistol TU usage adjusted (to make captures a little bit more easy)

Please try and tell if the game get's to hard.

The new Version (1.4.2) attached to First post here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,3260.msg37294.html#msg37294

Well, I can help you with the Greek translations I guess. But I have no idea how to do it (except creating text files and sending them to you LOL).
