EDIT: can we fix OXC to recognize the usual syntax? Because not having it is just ridiculous. Even if I fix it now, I'll probably do it "wrong" later again.

Not my decision.
But we can ask.

This has been recently added to OXC too.

EDIT:

Final Mod Pack version 3.3 has been released.


It seems metadata.yml has not been updated, still 'version: "3.2.2"' stated there.

In Final Mod Pack Extended max view distance is increased to 40.
It is a pretty huge change, it should be nice to have an option to choose between the old and this new distance setting, would it be possible to be implemented in the future?

Does not work
« Reply #3424 on: November 10, 2023, 04:51:54 pm »
I put the mod folder in my "mods" folder and it does not show up in the dropdown menu.
I use latest build (as today) for OpenXCom (not using extended).
I also needs help to install custom music files. The tutorials doesn't work, I think they are outdated.
Can anyone help?

Okay, I got it working... I found the mod on the bottom of the feature list (not very intuitive!)
So I have been playing this mod for many hours today and I must say I didn't really enjoy it =
Bullet sponge enemies... also is it impossible to research alien weaponry? When I researched I just got human weaponry.
Game almost gets impossible after a while with the super alien races you meet that can take 100 bullets and just die if you explode the entire map almost.

I think I go back to vanilla

I think (played FMP a looong time ago) that they're not bullet sponges, they just have good armour against whatever you're using. So this is what's nowadays referred to as 'skill issue'. :P

Does FMP have armour entries in the pedia? If so, you could try nabbing one alien through sheer persistence, look at what's it got there and see if you've got something that works against its hide. Edit: Yes, it does. /edit



Edit2: But, yes, FMP does away with the "Heavy Plasma in month 3" progression of the original, and you've actually got to fight the super-advanced aliens with your crappy Earth tech for a while. You've got to do some alien-napping and other research before plasma (or even lasers) open up. On the flipside, the human arsenal is a lot bigger and more varied.

I assume, FMP is already built-in into the XCF.  Is that correct?

As far as I know, it's mostly included, but XCF has been going its own way for quite a while now. So what's there might be close, or it might be tweaked/removed, but it's likely that pretty much everything has been at least considered for inclusion.

And then some things were backported to the OXCE 'expansion' of FMP.
