Globe is still WIP, it's is going to take quite a bit more time.
By exploiting the palette, I made an urban texture for the globe that lights up at night.
The effect is simple but it looks really cool imo.

I had not been able to test version 0.13 before today! Sorry !  :-[
Something very strange happened.
I had to add the line in research_apoc.rul :
  - delete: STR_ALIEN_GRENADE

to make v0.13 work (OXCE 7.0).

Thanks!
I'm sill using OXCE 6.9.
I guess I didn't disable the grenade and the ruleset validation that Meridian is adding to OXCE has detected my mistake.
Will fix.

When it comes to X-Com, the first one and the Apocalypse are my favorites so the idea of having Apocalypse in the first game got my interest. However for some stupid reason I am unable to download this mod because it fails every time after it downloads 3 megabytes, frustrating.

Very strange to be honest. I never heard anyone having problem downloading files uploaded on the forum.

Aye, odd indeed. Still none the wiser but I tried again just now and finally it downloaded

I've just resumed version 0.13 after several weeks of abstinence!
Early on, I had to deal with those damn alien ships (Attack ship - STR_UFO_INCURSOR)!
3 Incursor + 2 Carrier !  :'(
 
You give them the speed of 6000.
Isn't that too much?

No X-Com ship at the beginning of the game or even at the end of the game can compete with these monsters.

STR_VALKYR = 3900
STR_HAWK = 3900
STR_EXPLOR = 4800
STR_GARUDA = 4200
STR_LAPUTA = 5400

I think, perhaps wrongly, that 4000 would be enough.  8)
What do you think, please?

I love your pack!   :)  :)  :)

Mmmh you are right, needs some tweaking.
Those UFOs are supposed to be the fastest things out there: to counter them, there is an upgraded engine that you can equip your crafts with, to make them faster (you have to forgo a weapon); but it is quite evidently not enough/well balanced.
Thanks for the feedback! Really appreciate it.

In my soldiers' logbook I see that the values of several constants are missing!  ;)
STR_LIVE_SQUAD_LEADER
STR_LIVE_TECHNICIAN
STR_LIVE_SCIENTIST
STR_SWARMIDS_SMALL

I have cross-referenced the US language files of the standard version with your language file and with your "units_apoc.rul" file.
It seems that the constant "STR_LIVE_PSI" is also missing.  ;)

Edit :
And "STR_SWARMIDS_LARGE" !  8)

I have tried to play openapoc 4 times now and every single time something bugs out.

Is there a step by step installation process? I mean i dl apoc, throw in the game files and the game should work but this simply does not happen.  :'(

I don't know the English language... so I apologise in advance if I say anything stupid!  :-[
But it seems to me that you are confusing two very different games:
- From the Apocalypse : it's a pack for OpenXcom like the XFiles/XPiratez/...
- OpenApocalypse (OpenApoc): it's the Apocalypse game completely redone to be used on Windows 10.

So this pack "From the Apocalypse" installs in the same way as any of the other packs on this site in the "OpenXcom Extended" game!
