Thank y'all. The cold weather has taken over and so modding resumes.
Next release will focus on taming the mess, so I can upload it on the official mod portal too, so it can be downloaded from two different locations.

Thanks robin! Your terrains are just awesome!

And thanks again Dr. Crowley!

p.s. that's not the apoc-mod in those screens, it's my own personal mod-soup  ::)

Thanks.
Whenever I look at my new UFOs I can't help to think they don't look that good after all.
BUT the alien "base" on the other hand looks really great so I'm still happy 8)

whuwhat?  :o

Those UFOs are fantastic! And so are those Bigobs you said look shitty.
I would give a lot to be able to draw that good. All I can do is to edit other's work slightly and even then I have to spend days to acchieve anything...

Really, relax, your work is way up there, robin.  8)

Have to agree, Robin, the quality of your work is second to none,  i can only Imagine what i could do if i had your skills mate, my skills are limited to copy/paste/recolour. On  that topic, if you have any unused sprite work just sitting around feel free to pass it my way as im sure i could build some maps from it :P right niw, im holding off from raiding your. Mod for assets as im thinking I will incorporate laege chunks of it in the future, so for now, o have only borrowed a handful of sprites like the glass panels :P

Enjoying the mod immensely robin! Found a bug though - STR_OCULANT_NAVIGATOR doesn't have a live alien item, so it causes a crash whenever you try to capture one. I'm attaching a save just before I finish an Alien Gate mission where I capture one and it crashes. Just have the selected soldier shoot the spitter to kill it and end the mission. Minor related bug - the oculant navigator is also missing an extraStrings entry.

Little bug in "ufopaedia_apoc.rul" !  ;)

  - id: STR_ROBOFLYER_XCOM_ROCKET
    type_id: 3
    section: STR_WEAPONS_AND_EQUIPMENT
    weapon: STR_GUIDED_LANUCHER

Instead of : STR_GUIDED_LAUNCHER

Tks !

Will fix. You might encounter a problem also with STR_ANTHROPOD_SQUAD_LEADER, and STR_OCULANT_TECHNICIAN.
In general the campaign is broken.
I'm currently working on making it all better in that department, and making missions a little more meaningful to the context of the setting.

Little bug in "ufopaedia_apoc.rul" !  ;) [...]
Tks !

Thanks !

Sorry, there's one thing I don't understand....  :-[
In the file "language_apoc.rul" I see:
STR_GRIFFON_UFOPAEDIA: Multirole; made by Uni-Dynamics; CONTRACT-only


But in the "research_apoc.rul" file I see:
  - name: STR_GRIFFON_ASP
    lookup: STR_GRIFFON
    cost: 10
    points: 0
    dependencies:
      - STR_CONTRACT_MEGAPOL


I think there's a little-little very little bug in the "language_apoc.rul" file ... or in "research_apoc.rul" file !  :-[

Got another one for you - the Valkyrie is deploying only 12 of its 14 soldiers into battle due to having some spawn points in the deployment in the walls of the craft. Switching to this fixed it for me:

Code: [Select]
    deployment:
      - [4, 9, 1, 0]
      - [5, 9, 1, 0]
      - [4, 10, 1, 0]
      - [5, 10, 1, 0]
      - [4, 11, 1, 0]
      - [5, 11, 1, 0]
      - [4, 12, 1, 0]
      - [5, 12, 1, 0]
      - [4, 13, 1, 0]
      - [5, 13, 1, 0]
      - [4, 14, 1, 0]
      - [5, 14, 1, 0]
      - [4, 15, 1, 0]
      - [5, 15, 1, 0]

Re: [WIP][MOD][OXCE+] From the Apocalypse 0.7.0
« Reply #359 on: November 30, 2019, 07:32:33 pm »
new version up, 0.7.0
started cleaning up a bit, hopefully.
as of this version, the mod has the same amount of aliens that X-Com Apocalypse has. but in battlescape the amount of aliens of the mod is already higher (since one of Apocalypse's aliens is citiscape-only). i still plan to add some more though.
also, i struggle to understand how to define psi-weapons properly, so the current ones are put together without really knowing what i was doing.
sorry still haven't had time to setup a mirror.
