Will OpenTFTD implement changes from TFTDExtender?
As in, will gauss coelcanths be usable?

I don't know if it will be packaged as an "official mod" but you can bet your boots that it will be modded up in a flash by the community.

It depends on the feature.
The onespurely data-based are trivial to make with a rulefile, you can bet they will be shipped with the game as default mods.
The ones engine-based need much more work, and can be questionable if they don't have a strong following (ex: Xcomutil "Stat strings" and UFOExtender "Range-based accuracy" have many fans who always play with them).

Does open xcom have range based accuracy? I can't seem to find it.

If you got to the mod settings on the startup screen, there's a UFO Extender Accuracy checkbox you can set.  That will affect accuracy at range and provide a percentage "popup" value when targetting enemies.

Guys and gals... I have made a alien of TFTD, but this proves that the game can load.
the sprites are rendered correctly... well, most of them.
Audio is also messed up.
The game crashes on the UFOpedia, as you can see in the video.

Missionscripting is now there, with the latest github commits.

So i guess it is only a mtter of time until TFTD will be there, how long no clue.

we're getting there, the campaign is working as far as i can tell, generating ship attacks and artefact sites as it should. the next step (for me) is working on the battlescape to get synonium devices operational

Coelacanth/Gauss was gimped by a programming oversight. Since most of TFTD was hasty reskins, the ammo handling wasn't properly implemented. The way OXC works, I doubt that glitch is even possible anymore  ;D

Did this on my old PS just now. It's kinda small for desktop wallpaper though.. Gimme OpenTFTD!!
I may go back and finish it, but I may not, due to lack of creativity and time.

Nice work!
Should fix "resurrection" and "descend" though ;)
