Well 376 MB download is really a load!  :o Maybe updating first post and having a changelog may be appreciate to keep track of changes. It really deserves to be published on mod portal, of course with an external download link.

Hello:
I've been testing the mod, and apparently, everything works fine. However, I need a description of the error or a screenshot, if possible, to check where it fails and fix it. From what some of you describe, I suppose it could be some missing image of ufopedia. They are housed in the finalmod pack folder.

Alinare, your rar file is somehow corrupted, it can't be unpacked properly by any app I'm using.
It's packed in RAR5 format. An antivirus that doesn't know the new format will give a warning, that a file cannot be tested and is potentially hazardous, which may look like a virus warning. The format has been marked "experimental" for years and other programs were hesitant to support it.

It can be unpacked by WinRAR from September 2013 or later. Or by 7-ZIP from August 2015 or later.

Oh, that must be my antivirus picked up, though when I tried WinZip, I managed to extract it without problems.
Sorry alinare, I really thought it was a virus, but I'm just wrong, sorry! Your mod rocks...

No problem. Maybe the folder structure of my mod may have confused some antivirus. In fact, The Endless War is installed on my computer, to test it, correct bugs and verify it. And I check continuously, that there are no viruses or Trojans. As I said, I thought I'd do everything in one file, but I've gotten used to working like this, in separate folders. If something can be reproached, is to borrow some material, for UFOs and some sprites, because I am denied to create them, and the chaotic structure of the mod.

Here's a screenshot of the error I had. I assume it's the same as everyone else's. Maybe this'll help.

So, has someone tried to play this to the end? How does it compare with Piratez and X-Files?

Hello:
First of all, apologies. I should have put screenshots, and a list of the changes that I'm adding, I know, but now I barely have time, although I'm introducing new changes and things, as soon as I have a free time. The game has an end. Of course, although with many novelties that occur to me, although the theme, comes to be the same as the classic game, this is the alien invasion. I have tried to synthesize some concepts of several XCOM games, including the Aftermath saga. Soon I will upload another new version.

Can you provide more precise/detailed examples? How is the start compared with say regular XCOM? I saw there's enough planes, vehicles, gear and stuff to overwhelm a beginner, and I'm not sure how useful most of the available stuff is actually.
