Thanks to Warboy, this is once again playable, please enjoy:)

Also, as for Modding these map, i can open them using a old version of Mapview(from stratergy core site) there just all messed up and i am not sure why (yet)...

Should this now be moved to completed Mods???

please attach the file download to the opening post.

as for the maps themselves not loading or looking weird in the map editor, it may be because the mcd file is from your 1.0 release and the maps are from the \most recent\ folder in the 1.5 version

I want to test the crap out of these. I got the old MapView you were talking about, I can now open these maps for viewing routes but I can't see a tile list.

Thanks Warboy for making a ruleset for this, I had not the first idea how to do that.

Has PMPROG made any progress on getting the good Mapview to behave better?

I figured it out. It was totally my bad. I forgot to change image.dat to account for the new terrain sets. Works fine now,  I will begin to look at these maps to see what I can do.

Luke, I noticed you included alien equipment loadouts in the ruleset. Is it really necessary? I think not, and I'd rather remove them as they conflict with some equipment mods; still I may be wrong, haven't made any proper tests yet.

i managed to trigger one or two crashes, i hope this update fixes it for you.

i took the liberty of attaching an updated version to the opening post that won't mess with your loadout data, and it will actually use the larger map blocks this time, i'll attach it here too for archival purposes.

edit:

if i were more familiar with the maps i'd have sorted them a bit, so you'd have commercial and residential districts seperated, and then further subdivided by their overall theme, ie: suburbs, with cheap affordable housing, plenty of variance in the buildings, and the occasional motel, or housing estates, where only 1 or 2 types of house are used and there are vacant lots and construction sites, or a commercial district with supermarkets and gas stations, or the "uptown" region with hotels and restaraunts, and so on...

additional to this... i'd like to see civilians themed to their environment, like say at a port or cargo ship you'd have sailors everywhere, but at an island resort or cruise ship it would be mostly chicks in bikinis and fat guys in speedos. oh wait... that's my job, and that sounds like something i might actually have to do at some point... (additional edit: this is now done)

i guess it wouldn't hurt to give them (optional) weapon loadouts and adjust the neutral AI to help XCom if it's armed (unless XCom kills a neutral, at which point they are seen as a threat as well)

Warboy, do these civilians have ranks like "Sailor" and "Fat Cat", or are they still rankless?

it refers to a unit type, rank is defined by that. also, what sailors? we only have males and females here in ufo defense.
i merely added the capacity to define the civilians according to the terrain set.
