In regard to those dirt block levels i am kinda thinking if there is a way to resize the maps, remove the underground dirt levels and maybe integrate the then usuable map tiles into your terrain pack. Since both active at the same doesn't work because of terrain definitions.
Except adding a third rulesetfile which has all terrains from specified and is loaded after both of them, which is kinda ugly like hell.

But that is just a suggestion...

You can resize the map blocks using MapView but you'll need to redesign the tiles and the route nodes of all the maps.

The idea may sound nice but IRL pilots wouldn't dare it unless they were sure that the roof (and the whole building) could withstand the several tons weight of a jet plane otherwise the whole roof might just collapse.

Yes, it does. Welcome to the wonderful world of map design :)

If you're having problems adapting the ruleset, try the one attached below.

i like the building designs and that is bigger than default but the 3 levels below are not that good. i sometimes damage the terrain and fall into a hole that i can never escape unless im flying. also i tested it out you never use last 2 levels of underground and sometimes there is no underground. only 1 or 2 houses have a basement. why add 3 layers? realistically no building can have basement below groundwater due to regulations. so 1 layer of dirt is all you needed . but maybe is better with no 3 levels of dirt.

metro and sewers are the only exception but you can make a 2 part mission first clear above then clear below if you want to

For reference and all the people coming from thew Modportal:
I made a Version of Lukes Expanded Terror Mission which is compatible with the latest Nightlies,
the new Mapscripting standard and the new Modformat.

It is attached here, Maps and Routes are the same as on the modportal.
Which means they are buggy.

It needs: openxcom_git_master_2015_06_30_0026 or NEWER.

I made something like this for myself, too, but the performance of my PC dropped enormously and I talk about 90% plus....  :o

Gonna test your version, maybe I did something wrong.... :)

I meant YOUR version of this mod  :)
And yes, the performance dropped with this version, too, I guess its about time to replace my old single-core xp system... soon...

About the Expanded Terror mod: Sadly only 3 or 4 of the mapblocks even use the lower cellar levels, which is a shame.

Hm.. i am just fixing the routes on the Maps for my Hardmode Expansion Mod, and i will also give them to Solarius for the FMP.
An those Maptiles will become part of the Terrainpack once i finished reworking them (to intermix with MADURBAN terain).
I will probably open up a new thread for my Version, since it misses the cellars.

Yes, the cellars are not needed, the "dance club/disco" block could also be on the surface and still would look interesting, not sure if you planned on adding it as a seperate building maybe....
