Mod help
« on: July 25, 2019, 05:47:52 pm »
hello
very happy when I read that you agree to fix the old mods so that they work for a new oxce
Here megamodes that after version 3.10 do not work
thank you in advance!
http://www.mediafire.com/file/47333b01m5bzh72/X-COM_MODS.rar/file
also want to suggest two functions for oxce
playing, I noticed that the flare glows even in the hand of a soldier, an idea came here! and that if it also glows on the belt (that is, if we put the flare in the slot of the belt), it is understood that the soldier attached the flare to the belt, in my opinion it is logical.
and second, there is an option in the game that includes damage spread 50% ~ 150%
So, I think it's worth adding an option that completely disables the damage spread, that is, 100% ~ 100%
the idea is that when hit, the game takes into account only the armor and special characteristics of the enemy, if the enemy is naked and without special characteristics that increase his defense, the shot causes him damage as much as written in the weapon description, in my opinion it will be fair.

There are many mods in that archive; which one do you need help with?

I'll check what the options are.

The option to do 100% ~ 100% is already available:

It's on a per item basis. Setting randomtype to 3 sets damage to 100%

Also, some of those mods aren't even stand-alone as far as i can tell (the elerium flare one for example). What's your complete modlist?
