only insane ideas make truly outstanding mods.
From the Apocalypse is a wonderful example of this

Hi!

Well, I have some minor troubles with this mod. I started it on OXCE 3.7x not on "conventional" OXC.
1.: Since the very beginning I have research options for "Floater medic", "Sectoid medic" and Snakeman. All got researched almost instantly (5-8 hours in game time) and either give me a free "live alien report" or crash to desktop (STR_WHATEVER not defined, last time it was the Megaworm\Multiworm)...
2.: When I try to launch one of my crafts the game crashes and say interface elements are missing. I could not got any ground combat or air combat as it just crash when I click on the "Interception" menu.

I downloaded the last valid 7z file from this mod and overwritten the old game folder with it. I not think it is a ruleset error as I always delete old rulesets before override a mod's folder just for sure...

Strange. I will look into it this weekend.
I'm currently using OXCE 5.1 (v2018-10-14) on my pc to test the mod, so in the meantime you can try to update to that version (or a newer one), because the version 3.7 is probably obsolete for the current release (0.4) of the mod.
Also the mod never used "OXCE" but it used "OXCE+"; they now have merged into one single project, so the difference does not exist anymore, but for your version 3.7 the difference still existed.

Re: [WIP][MOD][OXCE+] From the Apocalypse 0.4c

new version 0.4c up
* redone illumination on luxury apartment and streamlined terrain; fixed ware_01 maps; uses OXCE 5.2
not satisfied with the version numbering thing, from next i'll use x.x.x format where each x is a digit.

@Duke_Falcon
I only tested a little but i don't have the issue you describe. so my suggestion is:
 - update to OXCE latest version (5.2 iirc);
 - double check you don't have other mods (aside from OXCE stuff) active, because my mod is incompatible with (almost) anything else.

Robin, the amount of work you've put into this mod is absolutely astonishing... I really can't begin to explain my appreciation of your art assets.  Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

An X-Com Files player Voidavatar was kind enough to make a paperdoll for the drone. I hope you will find it useful, Robin. (Voidavatar allowed using it in your mod, if you like.)

I had already seen that page. I personally don't hate the worm sprite as much as he does, but I the issue he describes is evident.

I think the only thing wrong with the multiworm sprite in XCA is it not living up to the standards of the rest of the game. It's a fine sprite; the others are just better is all. It's like hating on silver because it's surrounded by gold.

Uploaded 0.5.1 with some fixing. Still quite a mess though.
