Yeah the parser sometimes loses the "-" during word wrapping, which is irritating. Re-edited the text to hopefully have that "-40%" somewhere in the middle of a line and not confuse the player.

Not really, the first part was enough to convince me to never touch anything Firaxis will ever make :)

Actually I've upgraded to new .exe, testing, bugfixing. I should release new version soon.

New version up! Bunch of changes, all sorts of crap you can read about in the changelog :)
Highlights: Mainly beautifying, but also some new additional research patterns, items, fixes, updates. Beautifying was focused on soldiers, new gfx, and a new cute icons to preview armor in craft equip screen.
In battle, 2 major things: using fast melee weapons increases Reactions (as well as Melee), and WP munitions can cause Overkill now (quite often they do that...).
Also Smugglers are harder to catch with your rusty privateer wannabe, the Bonaventura :)
There was also an idea to make 4 extra colored versions of Bonaventura, each focused on some other aspect, Power-Rangers style, but this is not for this time :)

Special Thanks to Yankes and Meridian for code;
Special Thanks to Bloax and Ivan for gfx.

Somehow, even without having played openxcom I've managed to nudge things for quite a bit of good stuff to become reality.

feels good man

I'm hoping once summer break comes along to give this a solid playthrough again.

Still no Soldier Diaries/Commendations yet, right?

Is there any way to disarm (proximity) explosives, such as mines?

X2 is actually pretty damn fantastic. It's a complete upgrade over Xcom'12, as far as I am concerned.

I do have a question about Piratez, though; we are NOT supposed to use the version listed in mods, right? Only the versions you upload to Mediafire?

The version on the mod portal is outdated, as the site is acting up. Again.

Therefore please download the one from Mediafire.
