Hope this comes out fully fledged in the not too distant future!
I'm afraid it will come out fully fledged only in the very distant future: years. I assure you I'm the most impatient, but it just takes time to mod.

Robin, I would like to ask you if it would be possible to re-license your art for this mod under something like creative commons, chiefly because, assuming this will run with 100% original artwork in the future, this would mean OXC could be automatically bundled with something ready to be played in FLOSS linux distros that already have OXC in their repos.
i won't re-do natural terrains (desert, jungle, forest), so it won't be 100% original artwork. also i've used bits and pieces form vanilla and tftd tiles (and other stuff, like the cult armors copied from gundam), apocalypse tiles (even if re-drawn from scratch you can see it's copied from them).

Added the maps for red version ('Factory') of the industrial terrain.
Red battlescapes are simpler compared to the yellow version ('Warehouse'), which is good, the yellow battlescapes can be exacting.

As expected, there are quite a few issues, but for version 0.1, it is exceptional work. I can't wait for the first full release.

If you encountered any specific issues, note them here.

robin, this mod is really something, the graphics look so clean and nice and well done.  wow. The cult temple/warehouse missions are hair-raisingly difficult, there are hundreds of corners, hiding places, it's basically like the alien base layout of TFTD where you have to learn completely new tactics to survive. The old Xcom 1 tactics no longer work. Really impressive work (just like most bigger mods lately, the quality level of Openxcom mods has surely increased a lot!)

Some (really minor) issues I encountered:
-"Contractctct" spelling error in one case
-energy on earöy soldiers runs out to easily when wearing the personal armor, not sure if this was just a bad range of soldiers i had or if it was a issue, though...

Anyway, really good work, I especially like the completely new feeling, this is really a TC, not a mod. Also a pleasant surprise: You stayed focused on a certain number/selection of weapons and did not add too many stuff just because you can.

thanks.
spelling error will be fixed.
the personal armor does not modify the energy (power suit does), but it has --all the armors do-- weight (iirc 8 for personal); so you can more easily overencumber your soldiers.

This is looking grand! Nice work there! And all with the UFO palette? it's amazing what some here can do compared to what the original had!

Thought I would see Megapol/Marsec/Disruptor stuff... but at least the apoc armor logic is the same.
Always pleasant to see the wonders you've been doing with the UFO palette. The flora....... :o

Speaking of armor weight, are hybrids/androids in it?

I just realized that the Piratez mod has some cool looking Police units, they would look good as Megapol units.

i was going to make them myself. i already have a cool police bot.
problem is civilian units don't attack, so it doesn't make sense to add them.

You could turn them into alien allies....when you upset some org.


Idk if you'll implement some orgs structure though.
