So, Cooper is making a new planet:

Since this mod is supposed to be on another planet too, maybe you could somehow join forces?

The game crashes every time I go to intercept a terror attack. I assume it's because I probably installed the mod wrong but I think everything is in the right place. Help please?

The mod does not work properly for me either, I think it still is too much in an "alpha-state" atm. Which is a shame as this one really has some great artwork.

Idk, works for me w/o any trouble... You need to use OXCE+, you know that?

Yes, but what e.g. about the apothecary it has -4127 TUs. And other things like Plasma clips being STR_ALIENS_ONLY even if you need them for ammo etc etc. I'll wait for an update.  :)

Notice that Apothecary reduces your Strenght by 40. You need a 45+ strength soldier to wear it (and not get bugged TUs). Also make sure you get the right clips for your plasmas, many clips share the same gfx (wow, you managed to go pretty far... I didn't unlock plasmas before flying over 100 missions). Unless you wanted to use Chaos plasma guns - well, nope. Can't do that.

Yeah turned out that I didn't have OXCE. I overlooked that part.

Thanks for the heads up about the Apothecary Armor bit too!

--- posts merged ---

How do I edit the stat increases of the different sets of power armor? I want to make the MK7 Power armor provide increases in strength and such but when I make the changes in the rulesets it doesn't do anything. Is there something else I'm supposed to edit? Because I can't find anywhere else.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. Had the rulesets in two different places and I was editing the wrong one.

 :-[ ::) I have to admit i discovered that by using the Battle Generator AND by taking a look at the rul-files.... not by playing the mod....  :D
IIRC the terran/space marine plasma weapons use the alien/chaos clips and those have a requirement of STR_ALIENS_ONLY which makes them unusable.
However, I am too busy playing XPiratez atm, I stopped and deleted all other ongoing campaigns for the time being, so I don't really know for sure.

The chaos UFOs look great.  8)

Well, the part about Apothecary was more a common sense than actually playing - I researched it early, looked at the stats and concluded that allowing a soldier to have a negative Str score is a Very Bad Idea. So I've never actually equipped it on anyone below 45 str (since the medkit weighs 5). WHICH TOOK SOME TIME :) But I love how having a weapon and having a soldier good enough to actually use it are two very different things in this mod.
Also, yay for meltas.

hi everyone, i have been busy, been gone for a while, but im kind of back..

The main reason the power armor has strength handicap like dioxine said is to force soldier to wear armor to correspond to the gear ex: only devastator can use heavy weapon, etc...
Also a new planet is a kool idea, but i know nothing on that department, if someone wishes to give it to the mod will try implement those ruleset

I got new stuff to introduce to the mod, but need to completed and perfected
A new space hulk mission with some genesteallers (need to make a new 2x2 genestealler, also a terrain entrance for space hulk mission )


Currepted ground entrance for alien base assault (needs more chaos symbols and bones around)


Made other teaks and corrections as i play the game... Also added a new facility and new graphic for the graphs set

sure man do as you please!

Does anyone know where to get the terrain and different glob pack solo, to get more terrain variety for this mod, i see there are some terrain mod but they are merged with other mods! and i´m too old to learn more of the process of globe and terrain forming
