Argh, how many times I'll have to do this. This time it was modsite's fault, and its characteristically avant-guarde and chevalier ways of coding :) Re-uploading again, hope this works.

I'm getting the proper version when I try to download now. You should see 0.94 in the title screen. Filesize 27MB. Maybe the site needed time to process the file.

You need to install the original UFO Defense files in the /UFO directory, my archive doesn't contain them because they're copyrighted :P

Whoops, forgot about that. NVMD, all is in the opening post on this thread.

The update sounds great! Where did you get "inspiration" for the medieval screenshot? That shield reminds me of something..

And: At least xPiratez is contained to the user folder, that's good news to me! Having to hunt resources all over the archive was my main worry. I'll deal with the rest if you don't want to change your ways.

*Off to download a useless copy of OXCE again because xPiratez looks too good to pass on.*

Spoiler:
You forget about OXCom distribution (as in, folder structure, resources, rulesets). Without the correct exact Nightly, both the OXCE executable AND the mod are useless :) This also means, if your compiled build is based on a wrong nightly, the mod will fail. That's what the package contains, beside the mod itself. But yeah, the mod is fully contained within the User directory.
Also come on, it's just a couple of megabytes, few seconds even on a slowish 8 MBit connection I have :) User-end compiling is good, but I'd rather have a bigger download than half the players having no clue why the mod doesn't work/works like crap (due to possible triple incompatibility mod <> OXCE <> OXCom Nightly :) The player saves few seconds on download, and loses maybe an hour looking for / compiling the right version of everything... That'd make me a thief :)
I didn't forget that, no worries ;). I did make sure I compiled the right one (which is made easier by Yankes releasing fewer versions of OXCE than there are of OXC  :P). What I was suggesting is that you could link to the required, pre-compiled, OXCE Windows version for those who want the Windows-EzWays, and provide the mod file with just the mod ready to put into the user folder for everyone. Windows instructions barely change from:

1- Download and unzip archive

to:

1- Download and unzip OXCE archive
2- Download and unzip Mod in the user folder created by the OXCE the archive (this step they should know from installing every other mod into regular OXC)

This, in turn, would allow everybody to just download the mod and overwrite the old one whenever you update xPiratez while OXCE doesn't change. It would be similar to other megamods which require (and link to) a specific nightly. With the advantage that non-windows users (me! 8) and a few others) wouldn't have to sort through the windows install to get the mod.

And yet you lose half your downloads by making the installation a two step for windows users. I know this from experience.

Well, link to - where, exactly? Windows users rarely read instructions, and the modsite doesn't allow for easy, selectable multiple-file download. I'd have to put up the OXCE+Nightly on Mediafire or something like that, since OXCE is distributed w/o the required Nightly, and the Nightly in question is long gone from this site and accessible only through Git Hub.
I'll add install instructions for Linux, least I can do.

On to more pleasurable topics... The shield & sword are converted from Diablo (and you can totally shield bash!), as are several weapons, although the plate mail is 100% my own pixel art :)
