  • Fixed crash when clicking AMMO tab after unlocking Mag weaponry/multi-ammo ALLOY magazine.

  • Fixed bad buildings.xml that resulted in negative mfg times. My bad!

START A NEW GAME. Else you will be bugged from v1.4.1, sorry!!

v1.4.1

Where to begin, this was a massive update to just about everything....

  • Added UNSC halo weapons pack by Fucille
  • Added Armoured Assault! A Vehicle Rebalance Mod by Kabill
  • Added Choices Mod (parts 1 & 2) by aajs
  • In total, over 80 new weapons and several aircraft and aircraft weapons were added...yikes!
  • 1 new tank, the T-80
  • Fixed base defense missions for the missing new buildings that left black empty zones. YAY!
  • Fixed alien weapons from not showing alien ammo in ENERGY tab.
  • TONS of new research options and TONS of new things to discover.
  • Increased firepower on all Metalstorm weapons
  • Revised researching paths and requirements.

v1.4.0

  • Previous patches included, all rolled into one download.
  • Fixed AK47 animation issue with Basic Armor, no more flickering...etc.
    The issue comes from XNT files, here's how to MANUALLY fix it.
    1. Open /assets/units/xenonauts/armour.basic
    2. DELETE the folder "weapon.ak47" completely
    3. Copy the same folder from the Xenonauts 1.4.0 files
    The AK47 is using bad XML animation files, simply overwriting them wont fix it, you have to delete the entire folder and copy the new files.
  • Fixed Multi-ammo machine-gun to show up properly with all armors in combat.
  • Revised Researches.xml to fix unlocks and make all the goodies unlock properly. (please report any bugs with something not unlocking.)
  • Re-balanced melee weapons to have reasonable durability and require actual repairing. (was previously too high).
  • NEW! Unlocked all weapons for use with Predator armor. Be warned, may still be a little buggy and not all weapons may be visible when equipped in combat.
  • Included Kabill's latest "sort-of-random" map packs.
  • Updated Skitso's map pack to latest version and included it.
  • NEW! 3 tiers of labs, workshops and living quaters, including 3 teirs of nanoworkshops and quantum labs.
  • Rebalanced how much space living qtrs, labs and workshops have. (was far too high before).
  • Text fixes, a few weapon tweaks for ammo type and gave some melee higher damage....etc etc etc

[ATTACH]5137[/ATTACH]

Here's a personal patch from tweaking the value of xenonauts gear (weapons, armor, vehicles, manufacturing), to make the weapons be more useful and feel effective/be worth investing resources into.

Thanks, do you have a list of the changes you made or should I do a comparison with WinMerge? heh.

On a broad level:

-non-vanilla weapons are more special and more powerful. Basically corporation weapons are much more devastating compared to their original counterparts. Meanwhile advanced ballistics (eagles, magnums, m79,m82) are more of exotic weapons that are expensive, but provide a powerful strategic strenght that normal vanilla weapons don't.

-Vehicles are buffed. More armor, more ammo, more damage.

-Personal armors are made slightly lighter.

-Manufacturing costs are make now more sense and fair. No more silly 120 days to build a damn magnum revolver. :P

-AK47 is now worth using. Its more brutish with more power than the m16, but less accuracy.

-Some items are made lighter to make them actually worth equipping your soldiers with.

-Melee weapons are now viable and powerful, as long as you can get near an alien without being killed.

Melee weapons are also more different from one another, with some weapons still being valid even if new ones have been unlocked.

Hello,

i think this mod is a nice one, but i have problems with the SU-T10 and the front cannon loadout.

After i cosntructed the T10, the front cannon slot is empty. when i try to change the front cannon from the T10, i always get a CTD. What could be the reason for that ?

I already tried the XNT 5.31 without xenophobia and and ofc vanilla and there arent any problems with the cannon loadout, so it looks like that the CTD has something to do with the xenophobia mod.

sorry for my bad english, it isn't my native language ;)

Many thx for any help :)

best regards

Getting a crash every single time I click the frontal light hardpoint on the Su-T10, right after re-installing with a fresh copy. 1.07 with CE 0.24.

When the aircraft was first built, was the front cannon hardpoint empty?

Yes.

EDIT: I seem to have fixed it, copy-pasted the aircraft.human.su in aircrafts.xml from XNT 5.31 to the aircrafts.xml in my installation, then modified the values so they're functionally the same as in Xenophobia. Seemed to do the trick :)

Interesting changes, sounds to me like you generally made everything do more damage. Melee weapons in my testing already did a TON of damage, especially the two-handers like the Volt Bat. Generally its not really the damage you do but rather the number of times you get to attack with melee when your up close was my thinking for one-handers and of course two-handers being devastating if you can close to melee range.

I was playing insane difficulty and took down a Lizardman commander with two hits with the Volt Bat, dealing two hits, each above 180 stun damage. Maybe I got lucky rolls on the damage, who knows...but i was like "LOL HELL YEAH" when it happened.... ;)

Corp weapons I balanced to have strengths and weaknesses based around vanilla guns.

  • Metalstorm guns deal low damage but spray lots of rounds inaccurately (just for fun really)

  • LasTek guns are basically just 20% better versions of the vanilla Laser weapons.

  • Kas guns are just 20% better versions of the vanilla Plasma weapons.

  • Mars guns are just supposed to be "cheaply made" knockoffs, they have low damage/high weight but are cheap to build than full Plasma guns.

  • Core Tech guns are supposed to be end-game murder machines that are insanely expensive and difficult to build.

Anyway, just explaining the madness behind the mayhem ;)

Ok this update was a huge one, thanks to SoloA for allowing inclusion of his aircrafts mod and I finally got around to making some new gun art, fixing some more bugs & finally writing a BOAT LOAD of weapon descriptions with stats...etc.

Changes :cool:

  • Fixed crash when clicking on empty aircraft weapon slot for the SU.
  • Fixed 3 research entries for alien UFO aircraft weapons.
  • New! Realistic Aircrafts mod v1.1 by SoloA
  • New! Added Aircraft weapon stats displayed on the weapon slot of the aircraft now!
  • New! Begun adding weapon descriptions with stats for all new items (melee complete, guns at about 25% complete).
  • New! Unique artwork for Multi-ammo rifle & shotgun
  • New! Better artwork for all LasTek weapons!
  • New! 20 new real planes.
  • New! 18 new real missiles.
  • New! 7 new real aircraft's cannons.
  • New! New balanced base structures! 2 New living quarters, 1 New laboratory ,1 New workshop
  • Removed all XNT assets (art and audio) from Xenophobia's archive. Now all these files must come from having XNT installed before Xenophobia.

Yeah, the advanced melee weapons are indeed viable as primary weapons. I do agree that I may have overdone the stunbaton and the expensive voltbat, as those are the only dedicated stun/EMP melee weapons, but otherwise it makes melee weapons actually worth bringing to the battlefield, instead of replacing them with a set of grenades or rifle ammo.

As for the corp weapons, what you just described is very close to what I tried to achieve with them. Given how expensive they are compared to the normal weapons, they do have a bit of an extra kick to them. I didn't know about the Mars guns' philosophy of cheap knockoffs, so I ended making them just better and more expensive versions of the vanilla plasmas by accident. :P

thank you for your hardwork again, despite it not being a mod, apparently.

i did start doing some of those weapon stats myself, but only managed a few before my eyes went funny. :P

Yeah, my eyes started going cross after staring at the descriptions to do the stats and junk. Data entry sucks, but Im used to it. Im going to be using my "condensed" descriptions format for all the weapons as I for one like the data to be concise and tight for easy reading, but that means either removing the story fluff or condensing that as well. I found the vanilla description formatting to be rather...well...too big. Heh.

The rifle from Alien is nice, but is there any way to get this without pop culture weapons? I'm bothered by the inclusion of weapons from other universes, you may as well give me a Bolter and Chainsword.

Dont tempt me. ;)

And sadly content is mostly all integrated. To do so would mean more optional patch files that I really dont have time to maintain. This being said, nothing is stopping you from removing these items yourself, here is how (the short and easy way)!

Open researches.xml - Enter the cells and delete the lines for "UnlockManufacture" for the items you no longer want. Do not delete the entire cell as it will crash the game. Just remove the bits you dont want. This will stop them from unlocking during research and consequently prevents these from being available to build or access.

For example, removing the M41A Pulse Rifle:1. Make a backup copy of researches.xml, just in case.2. Open researches.xml (i recommend Excel for this).3. Press F3 and search for "m41a", lowercase ideally.4. Enter the cell and delete the line [b]"UnlockManufacture("ManTech.m41a");[/b]5. Also remove any entry for [b]UnlockItem("weapon.m41a");[/b] also, if present.6. Save & Play

heya,

nice update, but i have a new problem ^^

after a clean install and your updated mod, i now always get a freeze at the same point during a ground combat mission. The ai is moving.(hidden movement) and the last scene i can see is, that a viper is running into my direction and after it the game is freezing and the alien turn/hidden movement goes into a endless loop...:(

any suggestion ?

btw i saw, that this freeze is an old bug and already fixed in the vanilla game...*shrug*?

Could be the EXE version. 0.26HF is what is included. Try removing the 0.26 feature for "skiphidden animation" inside the config.XML, its under "CombatWindow" heading:

	<CombatWindow>	<SkipHiddenAnimations>1</SkipHiddenAnimations>delete <SkipHiddenAnimations>1</SkipHiddenAnimations>or set the variable to 0 to disable.

if that doesnt work, You could try grabbing an older EXE from the CE thread and see if that helps. I know I sometimes get a hardlock/freeze whenever I shoot a melee-only alien and they have no means to return reaction fire (like if they are stuck somewhere).

I save every round during battle for issues like this specifically. Be sure to report back if you are able to solve it.

Glad it fixed it, thats an experimental setting that the CE guys recently added. While I have no issues with it personally, its definitely not for everyone it seems. Shame too, its an amazing setting that makes GC much better, IMHO.

There's also an occasional issue with some of the melee husk things (name escapes me, but the deformed humans) that if they are in certain areas of a map, most notably the large gray walls common on Farm maps, that it hard locks the game when you do lethal damage. Not sure if there's anything you can do about that but figured I'd mention it.

Edit: Also, yeah .26CE save games aren't backwards compatible with any other CE version.
