Excue me, but what is a "vars-section"?

Could you just tell me the name of the file, that must be worked with an the position, where the line hast to be pasted into?

@Meridian, couldn`t this be implemented as an advanced option to the game?

allowCountriesToCancelAlienPact: true

This is a parameter for the file "vars.rul".

Okay, got it. Where do I find that file? It isn`t in the OXCE+ folder as far as I had seen.

What if I changed the type of mission generated from successful infiltration?
Example:

  - type: STR_ALIEN_SUBVERSION  # replaces classic ALIEN INFILTRATION
    points: 150  # Pact score only awarded on month end
    objective: 1
    siteType: STR_SUBVERTED_CORPORATE_HQ # alienbase-like mission site
    spawnZone: 4 # Mission zone for alien bases
    raceWeights: ...
    waves: ...

Would it still work?

You are not supposed to change this as a user... modders should be doing this.

I'm pretty sure it is NOT supposed to be turned on for PirateZ that you're playing now...

I don't know... what does that even do?

But it probably will work... "objective: 1" is important thing here...

Well,
STR_SUBVERTED_CORPORATE_HQ would be a mission like an alien base, just with a different terrain.
The rest is 1:1 with vanilla infiltration, besides the names.

The big doubt is about the enemy race that will populate the "alien base".
Normally it is the alien race that succeeds the infiltration.
But I'd need a different race, a human race (maybe with a sprinkle of aliens). I can define this specific race into the alienDeployments (like it is done for Cydonia)... the problem is that I don't know if that option can override the race set from the infiltration mission.

No. Only this

Code: [Select]
alienMissions:
  - type: STR_ALIEN_INFILTRATION
    points: 150
    objective: 1
    siteType: STR_CULT_VAULT_MISSION
    spawnZone: 4 #Mission zone for alien bases
....
alienDeployments:
  - type: STR_CULT_VAULT_MISSION
...
    race: STR_CULT

It's not clear-infiltration after infiltration?

Yes, you can do that.

What Ethereal described is exactly what you were asking about... if I understand correctly.

Yeah, I was talking about the same thing that Ethereal described.

This feature was on my wishlist, thank you for adding it.

I really like this feature. It may create a great sensation of getting an edge against the aliens, or playing a nervous tug-of-war with them (get bac one country, lose another). I'll certainly try it in a future play.
