[WIP] X-Chronicles version 0.3
« on: January 03, 2019, 05:57:33 pm »
Let me introduce The X-Chronicles: a new mega-mod for X-com.

Plot: this time you will encounter an invasion from parallel worlds where magic is real. To win, you have to learn it, because earth technology will not be enough.

Content: more than 60 new units, a ton of new items and abilities. New maps and gameplay chips.

Features:
 - Choose a sponsor country that will influence the rest of the game.
 - Ordinary people can not resist the new threat, so develop your operatives, turning them into powerful mages.
 - storm multi-leveled dungeons.
 - Strong soldiers may become necessary for the base development.
 - learn different magic schools with their skills.
 - Make the UN work for you.
 - ...

Condition:
The overall readiness of the mod is approximately 30%. You can already win by completing the main storyline. Although at this stage it is very difficult to do.
By the arcs:
 - Invaders: 75%
 - Aliens: 75%
 - Legion: 0%
 - Necromancy: 0%
 - Archmages: 0%
 - Spirits: 0%
 - Portals: 30%
 - Story quest: 90% (You can win!)
 - Secret: 10%

Acknowledgments:
Thanks to the creators of OXC above all.
Thanks to Yankes and Meridian for their invaluable work on OXCE.
Thanks to all the authors from whom I stole sprites or ideas for this mod. I try to at least redraw what I borrowed, but not always success.

Help:
 - Of course it needs an english spellcheck.
 - I would be very grateful for the new blocks of Nest maps.
 - Almost no new sounds, if there are suggestions - I will be glad.
 - ideas for new spells will always come in handy (the most difficult thing is not to ruin the balance).

Plans:
 I work on a mod in my free time, which is not so much. Slowly, but work is progressing.

Requires OXCE v.6.5.3 or higher.

Interesting project! Im not a huge fan of magic (I'm more a "future war" guy), but seems promising. BTW, I loved the helicopter, I want it in my mods. ;D

Looking forward for this project. :)

I think FeruEnzeru wanted some magic-themed mod, he will be very pleased with this.

@Nord
You're going to be doing another project than just TWOTS mod for TFTD? Sweet! :D

Looks like we're going be having another project soon enough. hehe ;D

I wonder what an actual Fantasy themed TC mod without some of the sci-fi stuff (from XCOM like guns, UFOs, lasers, plasmas, gausses, etc) for OpenXCOM will be like, unless it's OXCE only instead of regular or nightly.

I'm following this mod thread now while waiting for plans for me to get my WC3 interest back til Reforged comes out this year then.
Cuz FEJK's going shopping! ^_^

Best of luck for this mod, i would love to see it become a reality, i started toying with a similar idea myself years ago with  FOXY but i was going to make it a pure fantasy adventure :) i will keep my eye on this mod

Nice work Nord, you’ve captured some concepts I’ve been exploring but haven’t really got anywhere with as hectic personal life means lack of XCOM missing time.

Good luck with it all, I can understand both life can get in the way and the modding tools aren't always the best.
