  1. It means that im off-line for all intends and purposes. Good luck with the accuracy video, i hope that many more videos follow.
  2. Final UNOFFICIAL updated X-Division 1.00.10 Notes: X-Divison has gone the step to replace vanilla files. There has been an original file added for every replaced one in case you want to deinstall the mod. In case of doubt make a reinstall of the game or verify game integrity through steam. You only need to download and install the latest Patch avaialble, it contains all prior fixes as well. The .01 to .10 patch is NOT savegame compatible. If you want to make it savegame compatible you need to make a backup of your researches.xml, run the installer, and immediately copy your backup over the new file again. You will miss out on the fixed researches but you can continue the campaign. As a basic rule, never patch during Ground Combat Installation: The Base for this patch has to be version 1.00.00 or higher. This update is not available for versions lower than 1.00.00 . Download the X-Division 1.00.10 Update: https://mega.nz/#!dQQwCQRC!gzlksCzX9l91PAJfViyyAyXzd_VN0weUL1X5GZmeuvU Link ( MD5: f82bbe1f12c7e97a7b86c7ec3de19e11 ) Deactivate your ANTIVIRUS/UAC program(s), it can intervene with the installation. As soon as the installation finishes you can activate it again. Start the executable provided in the file. Follow the instruction of the installer After you have used the installer there is no need to change ANYTHING anymore, everything has been taken care of, including scripts, modloader priority, and everything else you may think of. The only time you might want to change something is if you are activating/deactivating No Airgame or change the soldier models. Enjoy . Changelog: Dunno, i changed a lot. These are the things i can remember: Fixed some bugs around the Roborex Roborex explosion on death no longer causes overdamage Roborex explosion radius decreased from 6 to 4.5 Halfed kinetic armour for semi-shield roboreaper. Their weak point should now be weaker Halfed energy armour for melee roboreapers. Their weak point should now be weaker added mitigation to human stun gas added one loading tip improved the AI of Drones a bit most importantly added X-Divison Palu's Shining Xenopedia to the game 7 new categories for the soldier equipment screen I think i also added the latest Monument IV map by Svinedrengen to the map pool new mod: Nerf The AI: The aliens have less sightrange, deal 20% less damage and have 10% lower stats. new mod: X-Divison Don't Die On Me ! :If your soldier doesnt blow up, takes a minigun point blank or gets left behind he WILL survive the mission. new mod: X-Divison Easy Airgame: Did you ever wanted to try out the manual combat but were put off by the difficulty ? Look no further, this is what you need. UFOs have 50% less hp, while your aircraft are 20% faster and have a 20% further range. Additionally the refuel, rearm, repair and recovery rate are 30% faster. Only TOGGLE this during a Geoscape save. The Xenopedia page doesnt correctly display UFO hp values with this. Its 37.5% for the lowest difficulty and 50% for all other difficulties of the displayed hp values. new mod: X-Divison Slower Invasion: The Invasion escalates 25% slower new mod: Empower Facehuggers: This will improve the AI of facehuggers, but as a side effect they will also be able to attack vehicles. Ofcourse this is not intended gameplay which is why it isnt in the base version. If you want to give facehuggers their intelligence back while having to drive your vehicles cautiously around this is for you. appended unobtainable andron terror unit loot to appropriate robodog/roboreaper units new feature: AP Damage: MAIM/SHOCK damage that reduces TUs for the next turn. revised Shock and Electron weaponry fixed the installer with the help of @Mr. Mister Increased frag grenade damage from 50 to 70 Increased frag rocket damage from 90 to 110 EMP charges and rockets no longer cause overdamage Shock rockets no longer cause overdamage Soldier Equipment Screen gained a Soldier Sort button decreased Endgame research time in accordance with the latest diminishing returns formula Removed shields from some harridans, increasing hp threshold of mentioned ones, fixed one reflex stat revised the sonic weapons ammo weight added the stun gas mitigation values towards the stun damage, as mitigation never worked for gases increased the acceleration for the archelon from 500 to 1000 increased the range of the shockgun from 2 to 3 decreased TU% for Praetorian attacks from around 30 to 20 TU% fixed even more bugs I consider it save to use, but it obviously hasnt seen the same amount of testing like prior versions.
  3. This has been long overdue, but with this i finally announce my Retirement from the X-Division project. It has been a fun 3+ years journey with all of you. Thank you for all the feedback, and appreciation you gave me. It has been worth it. Charon I think it would be unfair to not give all the people who have been hard working on the unoffical version 1.00.10 their share in the spotlight, and i will therefore make the unofficial version publicly available in the OP, as well as announce it on reddit. A lot of work went into it, including all the new mods which tries to give the game a better flavour, and most importantly of all, a finished Xenopedia. See ya.
  4. @PALU I saw that you got the Enforcerer. Were you able to unlock it without fiddling with the files, and it is therefore safe to assume the research code works as intended ?
  5. Well, im not saying that the Age of recruitable soldiers and their background still fits into the Lore of X-Division, but that would just be another thing to revise. But it is minor, and bigger problems come first on the list, which is the perception of hiring elites. If you want, you can then also revise the Age and Background Information to a more darker tone. Btw, i never got the memo about hiring elites, where does that actually come from ? And i also dont get your part about drugs and mechanical enhancements being unbelievable. When you are talking about doping in real life than you are talking about a very controlled environment. People who dope have months to prepare and get used to the drug and their effects with it. People dont randomely compete and take an unknown drug 5 minutes before the performance. Unfortunately X-Division doesnt have that time, normal dopers have months to prepare, you have a single month to get your soldiers asses up to a terror site. Thuse i dont think it is unbelievable at all for gradual testing and experimentation with small amounts of drugs, especially if you mix in the possibility of alenium enhancements. I rather think along the lines of Spartan 2 Program. But in a more gradual manner, and with gradual access and risks. You dont want to kill your soldiers, but you want the better performance. Now if somebody trains up their soldier to max accuracy in a single mission than thats unbelieavable, but any system can be exploited. And this is not about an excuse for a system, it is just the real backstory. I think stats up to 100 are more or less still humanely normally reachable. But if stats go beyond 100 than it starts to get obvious that they enhance their abilities with that little something extra. The maxed stats are also easily explained through the risk/reward of continuing to modify your soldiers versus the risk of a failure. At one point the soldier is just useable enough that any further modification has a bigger risk than just reaping the benefits of the modifications which are already done. Small mechanical implants explain themselfes. Ofcourse there are no visible effects on the soldiers, the game isnt age restricted.
  6. @PALU Following this post and the high frequency at which it is stated that the recruits are highly trained elites, and the best of the best ( they arent ), i would like to ask if we can get it somewhere across that your recruits are not the best of the best, but simply rookies ? We are a shady organisation and recruit soldiers all across the world. Mostly people who have been unhonorably discharged, are unhappy with their employer, or have other shortcomings which makes them hard to integrate in a normal organisation. Sometimes we also get highly valuable personal, but that aside the style that we recruit in is mostly this: Also something i would rather leave in the dark, but is also something that frequently comes up. How can the trainable maximum stats be so high ? The answer is simple but since children play this game its hardly incorporated. Behind the scenes there is an abundance of drug abuse and mechanical implants going on. Most soldiers start out pretty normal, but as time goes and and with the motivation of actual missions on their back soldiers get more and more motivated to get stronger, faster, and more accurate - through any means possible. Having an augmented joint might not be the prettiest sight but it hardly matters to a corpse. Depending on the mission a soldier can get more motivated than in other missions ( depeding on useage ) and existing drug doses are getting refined as well as more experienced gained on how to use the mechanical replacements. This gets hinted at already with the introduction of the psionic blocking armour, the wolf armour, but you can also see it how the armour design more and more conjures the images of the soldiers. At the end of the game you rarely see a face anymore. Prostheses are getting better as shown on the soldier equipment screen later in the game, among non explicitely stated clues. If you still want to write some stuff you can incorporate this to your liking. But go a bit easy on the drug abuse side. This is highly unoffical inside of the Organisation of X-Division.
  7. Solver implemented it, and it never got tested. But it should work except that software never really works.
  8. @PALU It produces the Corvette
  9. There is only a for missing. And Dagar is simply stating the discrepancy of high end intellectual programmers who really know they will use all of the detailed functionality of the program and the inevitable sacrifices on the altar of accessibility for the end users who cant differentiate between a bit and a byte. His words also express sympathy towards Chris and the valiant effort he has to make to let his ingenius programmers think on how to make the modding part of the game as open as possible, and the effort which is connected with that. Dagar also implies that at one point in his life he worked on an editor for TES: Morrowind, and that he knows what it means to work on an editor for a game program. His words were not addressed to you in the slightest. Looks like plain english to me, not sure how anybody would have problems understanding it.
  10. Ok so i ran a few tests on the save. First things first, 71% means 71% of hp remaining. So if the infiltrator was undamaged before the landing, and i confirmed it was, the batteries did 29% dmg. Which they did not, is the conclusion i came to. Another test did around 19000 damage from the batteries, at which point the percent dropped from 71% to 70%. If i would do the math i would come to the conclusion that the game really thinks the infiltrator has 480k hp ( 1% is 4800 ). So basically here is what happened: The game spawns the infiltrator with 0% > right before the landing they deduct hp equivalent of 25% > then the batterie(s) roll their damage ontop of it. A few things to note: this kind of information seems to be present in the savegame, as Palu and I come to the same procedure even though we have different PCs. the battery hit is PREDERTIMENT, which means no matter how often you load the save, the battery will always hit. This kind of information also has to be present in the save game, otherwise we wouldnt have the same result on 2 pcs. Usually this SHOULDNT happen, a 50% hit chance means it should fail 50% of the time. Damage of batteries get randomised. A few things to note in general: hits of batteries seem to get randomised. Confirmed on a different save after an infiltrator has spawned. This is contrary to the above conclusion of the predertimed hit from the Palu save. I set up a new game at 1400 ATP and a single particle turret. It was weird. The first test i ran has 76% damage remaining, with the same invisible deduction of hp. But every other test after that ran as expected. That is it didnt invisibly deduct any kind of hp between landing and firing of the batteries, and particle turrets did around 3.3% damage. I would say whatever was at work here had to warm itself up on a few calculations before it was ready to spew out the correct ones. I cant see how i can fix that, and i think these things were simply a bad seed of the program. I would leave it at that.
  11. @PALU Why dont you just try it out in the editor ? I also changed the Destroyer and other weapons. weapons_gc.xml
  12. Wut ? Well if you have the particle turret than the damage is about right. Its 16k, plus/minus fluctuation. But if that is 71% damage than the infiltrator only had around 26760 hp. Probably 27k. That number doesnt exist anywhere if it hasnt ben changed by someone ( is my guess ). Do you have a save before the landing and can reroll the fight and/or send me the save ? Tried the new changes and the Reaper yet ?
  13. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You gotta see the weapon in action, it will blow your mind. Its a new type of weapon i came up with. I dont know, i rather say having at least one SHOCK weapon in your 12 army squad is kinda the basic of basics at that point. And that you will encounter a Praetor is something you can see before the mission with the help of a quantum radar. So no real surprise there. Only a field test will tell how the Devourer plays out. The purpose is that you download it and put it in the directories as described. The files are the first step for the next update. Heres another one: weapons_gc.xml Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuups. airplane.alien.infiltrator.sebillian.xml airplane.alien.infiltrator.caesan.xml You cant change the unit loadout after the unit has spawned, so good luck with the 2 praetors , and the new weapons .
  14. I rather think that not everyone has the same associations with the word "unofficial". Some expect support for unofficial versions, especially since its posted by a developer, and others dont. We are on the internet, where people all across the globe with different cultures and backgrounds are living. Trying to find a wording which everybody understands is next to impossible. But the bottom line is that even @Svinedrengenasked what the unoffical versions were about. We could propably include that in the unofficial release. @PALU The Horror is not part of the prototype weapons, but the Reaper is. I think the Reaper is the most interesting one out of the weapons, but the Defender comes right behind it. In the Devourer case i fully suspect a proper player to utilise at least one SHOCK weapon, to take out the second burst, and maybe even scare the AI depending on the situation to not attack. The rail SMG has 40 AP damage and if you are out of sight the Praetor won´t even chase after you. Still, definitely on the more dangerous side. The Destroyer is supposed to be a sniper, although it seems one with a burst function. It should be noted that the Devastator armour on average only sustains 15 damage. Btw, if the Devourer is so dangerous, i could put the Praetor for a Terror Crashsite in the field, instead of the bridge. Would that be better ? That would take out the danger of the point blank thing, except for Base Attacks ( uh, base attack worries again ). Into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Xenonauts\assets\mods\X-Division: weapons_gc.xml Into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Xenonauts\assets\mods\X-Division\ufocontents: airplane.alien.mothership.caesan.xml airplane.alien.mothership.sebillian.xml Into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Xenonauts\assets\mods\X-Division\projectiles: alienchemical.zip You should propably run a diff on the ancient weapons. Also take a look how the weapons shoot in the editor, their visual component is very important. Edit: Also, andron stages "swap" between ancient weapons >< :D.
