Попытался поиграть. Первые впечатления были весьма положительными, большое разнообразие всего. Вот только... чересчур уж всё мощное и точное, да и характеристики бойцов, даже в самом начале, слишком хорошие. В результате, у пришельцев просто нет шансов. Интерес теряется. Правда, я запускал на самой низкой сложности, чтобы попробовать.
I tried to play. First impressions were very positive, a great variety of everything. But ... too much all powerful and accurate, and the characteristics of the soldiers, even at the very beginning, are too good. As a result, the aliens simply do not have a chance. Interest is lost. True, I ran at the lowest complexity to try.

Теперь про ошибки. Если взять на миссию бронемашину, то при попытке её выбрать, игра намертво зависает. В лог, при этом, никакой ошибки не записывается. Попробовал вместо бронемашин взять танки, с ними никаких проблем.
Now about the mistakes. If you take on the mission of an armored car, then when you try to choose it, the game hangs tight. In a log, thus, any error is not written down. I tried to take tanks instead of armored vehicles, with them no problems.

Вот два сохранения. В первом, два дроида и две бронемашины на борту. Дроиды действуют нормально, но если перейти к бронемашинам, то всё застывает. Может, это только на Андроиде так, не знаю. Во втором сохранении два танка и два дроида, там в бою проблем нет.
Here are two save. In the first, two droid and two armored cars on board. Droids operate normally, but if we go to armored cars, everything freezes. Maybe it's only on Android so I do not know. In the second conservation two tanks and two droids, there are no problems in battle.

Попробуй теперь. Только резерв сделай.

Насчёт остального...

1) усилил инопланетян.
2) подрезал стартовые характеристики солдат.

Проблема с бронемашинами решена - они теперь работают.
The problem with armored vehicles is solved - they are now working.

Дисбаланс скорее к роботам относится, чем к людям. Они слишком сильны для начального этапа. И под их прикрытием солдаты мало рискуют. В обычной игре, вернуться с первых миссий, за исключением лёгких разведчиков, и не потерять хотя бы двух бойцов - большая удача. Здесь же я дроидами всех врагов расстрелял, солдатам даже выходить не пришлось.
Imbalance is more like robots than people. They are too strong for the initial stage. And under their cover, soldiers take little risk. In the usual game, to return from the first missions, except for easy scouts, and not to lose even two fighters is a great success. Here I dped all the enemies, soldiers did not even have to go out.

Ну, здесь разница в подходе к делу. Вся эта бронетехника и нужна для сохранения жизни солдат. И стоит она не дешево. Я бронетехникой редко стреляю, поскольку иначе солдаты не получат опыт. А прокаченный солдат намного круче всех этих роботов и танков и тем намного ценнее, чтобы рисковать его жизнью.     

Кстати странно, что ты доридами всех перестрелял. Они сами хрупкие и их сносят с плазменных пистолетов крайне быстро. Особенно на террорах и базах. На открытой местности они хороши, но они не получают опыт.

А танки да, даже начальные, рассчитаны на то, что они должны выдерживать несколько ударов Тяжелых Плазменных и Акустических орудий. В конце концов это ТАНК, а не легковой автомобиль из оригинала, который рассыпался даже от пролетающих рядом снарядов.

Well, there's a difference in approach. All this armor and need to save the lives of soldiers. And it is not cheap. I rarely shoot with armored vehicles, because otherwise the soldiers will not get experience. And pumped soldiers are much cooler than all these robots and tanks and so much more valuable to risk his life.     

By the way, it's weird that you shot everyone with droids. They are fragile and take down with plasma pistols extremely fast. Especially on terror and bases. They're good in the open terrain, but they don't get the experience.

Tanks and Yes, even the initial calculated that they must withstand several blows with a Heavy Plasma and an Acoustic cannon. After all, it's a TANK, not a civilian car from the original, which crumbled even from flying nearby shells.

I like the mortar idea and the mechanics behind it! Good thought. Also the idea of "real" fuel is nice, ever since X-Piratez the free fuel feels like a small exploit, so yes, good ideas.

Update.
 - Fixed insane amounts of fuel in ships.
 - Lobstermans transferred from the category of terrorists in a separate race.
 - Added 3, not typical for the series, terrorist.
 - Increased bonus aliens for the level of difficulty.
 - A lot of small changes aimed at complicating the game.
 - Infiltration mission activated. Upon Infiltration, a special base will appear, which is different from the others. If it is destroyed, the country will be returned.
 - There's a 50% chance to prevent the construction of alien bases and infiltration. We need to intercept a special ship-Builder of Bases.
 - The action of psionic is very difficult. Distance is limited. All aliens have increased psionic defense.
 - Fixed some game settings.

Update.
 - Some changes in the balance sheet.
 - Added additional modules for base. Maps-duplicates of existing modules.
 - In the version with the mod, Ufopedia was partially brought into a kind of order.

The main archive with the game and installed OXCE+ - in the first post.
In this post - archive in the form of mod. The game requires the latest version of OXCE+ to be installed.

Thank you very much, Meridian.
Trouble with the display of armor in ufopedia corrected himself. In the next update will be. However I will do it not earlier new version of OXCE+. By the way, roughly when it will be released?

We did a lot of changes and are still testing them... but I would like to release an official OXCE 5.2 before New Year if possible.

- Lots of balance changes.
- Fixed bugs I found.
- Implemented some new OXCE function features.
- The KIT includes OXCE 5.2.

The mod is made by modifying the base. I advise you to disable automatic updates of OpenXcom and OXCE.
The mod is made in the Windows operating system, and no other operating systems I do not have.
