More animation in TFTD terrains
« on: September 15, 2017, 03:08:22 pm »
So here i decided to upload some MCD's with improved animation. Right now it is alien ships, alien base level 2 and artifact site MCD.
Just put into "\terrain" folder. Will not work with original TFTD though, only with OpenXCOM.

It's better to include in the OP that unzipping the compressed file to /terrain will overwrite the original files, so if people want to revert the changes they need make a backup copy of the /terrain folder. Changing the original files will also affect any mods that depend on those files.

You can avoid all this if you simply make a separate mod containing the changed terrain files, using a ruleset to change which terrain files are used on the vanilla terrains. That way players can simply switch the mod on/off in Options without having to copy/replace the original terrain files

In fact, no ruleset is needed, so here is terrains packed as mod:
