X - Division

Destiny Denied

Ver.0.98.2 HF 6 for 1.5+ and 0.33+ CE

xdivisioniron_zps8kmn3byu.jpg

When the invasion began, the world was at cold war. They didn't trust each other.. They wanted to defend themselves alone. Many great soldiers didn't want to betray their own countries too. But few volunteers and some resources saw the danger in near future and created a division named X.. they were not the best, they didn't have the hidden cold war technologies but they got faith in their souls. And some warriors, scientist and workers gave their life for their future.. In time, the world will see what they are against but they will be to late.. X - Division was the final hope..

-IMPORTANT FIX FOR XCE 34-

-Go for assets/mods folder and open XDivision folder

-Find weapons_gc.xml and open it with notepad

-Search for "weapon.grenade.incendiary"

-You will see a code just at that line: MODMERGE="insert"

-Change the "insert" to "replace"

NEED TESTERS FOR NEXT VERSIONS. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE SEND A NOTE!!!

X-Division is now at NEXUSMODS website. You can download this mod's final version 0.98.2.7 from there.

Welcome to X-Division A full Overhaul Mod for Xenonauts. This mod is made for to add more variety, micro management and using all the aspects of the main game. This mod is hard, complex, long and challenging. As my first mod in my life, it has my +20 year of turn based combat game play experience with best of its genre like Fallout Tactics, X-Com and Jagged Alliance. I strongly recommend to play this mod after finished Xenonauts.

X-Division brings most of the old X-Com concepts in to the Xenonauts with bringing micromanagement and alive alien capturing. Addition to old concept, X-Division adds many new weapons, planes, vehicles, researches, manufactures, projects and enemies. Many players don't have any idea about how to calculate game mechanics, like damage types, resistance and armour mechanic, armour penetrating and more. This mod uses every little bit of the game mechanic.

This mod has no joke. Everything has a purpose. Weapons, armours, enemies... You need everything to survive.. Ignoring something like "i don't like to use vehicles" or " shields are useless, i can fight without them", will make your life much more harder.. because i said those things to myself when i play vanilla and XNT and i try to figure out how to make all aspects useful..

Xenopedia and tooltips fully remade. New X-Pedia got about 400 entry with new lore. Some entries got not a lore but will be handled as soon as possible by lore writers. New original X-Com style X-Pedia got every weapon 1 by 1...

Xenonauts had no name as a special ops at vanilla game. As an navy officer at my country, this is unacceptable for a military unit who fights against a serious enemy. For this reason, i wanted to create a flag, a family, a force to fight together against a thread, as X-Com created 20 years ago.. I hate to copy something already used so i created "X-Division".. Made an emblem for it and put everywhere at game. Now you have an ID... live with it, die for it..

X-Division started as a next version of XNT 6.0 after XNT team stopped modding. Now X-Division is a totally new mod with XNT aspects inside; some are nearly same, some are different.

All new weapons art taken from countless web sources, searched for days and the best edited at Photoshop to use at game. New weapons get unique particles-explosions. Few of them taken from here as visual mods but sadly most of old visual editors are no longer here and i couldn't get any answers to my pms..

X-Division started a single mans dream and now became a team. All people who loved the old days and want to help as modeler, lore writer, 2D effect designer even grammar checker will be welcome on board!

This mod is 2 GB. There is so much thing in it. Just forgot everything about default game or old versions.

- X-Com style "Capture alive to get the research". Sebillians and Caesans got 12 new specialists with different colors. Capturing them alive is very vital for game progress.

4 Branch of specialist aliens for 3 time era of the game.

Medics - Stun and chemical weapons. + Damage to that alien types

You need to capture every one of them for 1 time to understand alien tech. For example to learn alien plasma weapons, you need caesan weapon sergeant.

Global Additions:

- Beginning of the game is really hard. Your basic weapons are totally crap. Get an armour and new weapons ASAP.

- Invasion is much more slower then default. Dont panic if you think you are slow.

- All economical rates are upgraded, balanced for mod.

- All manufactured items can be sold for benefit but the rates are different per items.

- Game has 4 main damage types. Kinetic-Energy-Chemical and Incinerate. All aliens got weak and strong resistances against certain type of damages. Soon you will see them at Xenopedia, but not yet. For this reason you can check:

Andron Ceasan Sebillian Wraith Harridan Reaper Xenomorph Drone

Ballistic........++........... -- ..............+............. +............ -.............++.................+............... ++

Energy........ -- ........... ++ ..............- ..............++ ........ + ........... - ................ + .............. --

Chemical.......- .............+.............. +..............+..............+........... ++ ...............++...............+

++ Highly resistance

+ Low resistance (chemicals hits big damage even at "+")

-- Highly Vulnerable

- Standard

- Tons of new explosions, projectile, particle effects added. More will come.

- Nearly all UI graphics upgraded. X everywhere!

- There mods are implemented with X-Division:

- "Furies, Terror, and Dreadnoughts Oh My" from skaianDestiny

- "Dynamic Ufo Spawns" from kabill

- "Fire in the Hall!" from kabill

Not Implemented Yet:

- Balance is still an issue. I am waiting all your feed-backs about balance.. Economy or combats...

- New manufacture projects with manual-looted alien grenade-ammos.

- Building overhaul

- Special Alien forces unique to some situations, like terror sites, base defense or ufo bases.

X-Pedia and Tooltip patch released thx to Draku for tooltips!

For an example of X-Pedia Remake:

This is the default one:

2015_03_02_00002.jpg

And this is the new concept:

2015_03_02_00001.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------

Vehicle Overhaul:

FINISHED. Big thanks to LordJulian for his new vehicle models.

-----------------------------------------------------

FUTURE PROJECTS:

2. Air Battle Overhaul

- Condors will be crap...

- 3 weapon type will have special purposes..

- Cannons: Very short range dog fight weapon

- Missiles: Medium range with good turn ability anti interceptor-light/medium ufo weapon. Evade would not be a solution.

- Torpedoes: Long range but slow.

- Ufo weapons get a total overhaul. There will be special weapons per ufo. Their missles will be more dangerous and they will have torpedoes as well against bombers. Ufo interceptors will be much more dangerous.

- Anti missile weapons will be in use.

- Air combat will be more action but i will put auto-solve still useful for ppl who don't like air combat at all.

3. Special Force for Aliens at GC..

- Special aliens for special missions mostly for base defence and terror sites. Assassins, demolishers and more with unique weapons..

4. Branching weapons

- Player will choose only some weapon branches at every tech.. for example if you think you got enough ballistic weapons, you can choose to research energy weapons at next tech. You wont be able to get the ballistic weapon of that era. There will be unique weapons from special alien forces.

Finally this feature implemented on beta, interesting.

Thanks for follow my advice, research branches could make this game the best one.

Congratulations

Let me check the beta and I will tell you (At first sight looks like you only partially branch some ultimate weapons, the ideal is a completely branched game from the beginning.

I am no good at forum design. Yours are very nice.

first I need to see all the branches balanced. Still need testing. 0.99 will have branch choosing.

I think he meant the general pace of the game, invasion won't escalate as quickly, and nope... not a single problem here so far not even a CTD.

But ehm is it me or the alien heavy plasma is the ultimate weapon? they deal 50 damage per shot, extremely accurate at even the longest of distances... I lost 4 of my xenonauts to a single Caesan kneeling behind a barrel shooting with that like... 30 tiles away?

Good morning guys.

I will check heavy plasma. Yeah invasion is slower. Saves won't work of course it's totally new. I am putting new alternate link.

The beginning of the game is hard. Without armour and new weapons, don't aspect to kill aliens so fast..

I play iron man mode. Lost three fighters for 2 missions. Two of the heavy plasma, you know ... but even more by my mistake. But the death of the third interesting. After the shooting enemy in front of the UFO one man got suppression from friendly fire and on the next move, he panicked (everything was good, was not injured or killed while ...), threw his shield and rushed straight into the back of the middle scout, he even had the TU open the door in the aft compartment... and get something on the next move in the face. I could not help him, he cut off a corridor and sibillan resist all flash. This whole situation - is nonsense.

By the way was still the case when my game was destroyed in 0.97.1. Was a mission where this same average scout landed on the field with yellow hay. In battle, i was throwing EMP grenades at enemies in front of the UFO. Hay caught fire, which is quite logical (sparks, etc.). Front fire started is spread in all directions and modernity came to UFOs. Inside each turn were heard screamings and when I opened the door I saw complete devastation and havok. No left alive in main room, but it was interesting to 2 entities that are displayed with a red circle as enemies, they could shoot, dealing 20-30 damage per shot, but nothing happened, they are completely immortal. Corpses beneath not. One of them is prevented to enter the rear compartment, covering a narrow corridor. As it turned out later, was sitting there last psionic...

Heavy plasma is corrected with hotfix 2.. you wont see that weapon so soon and its acc nerfed..

Movement of the panicked soldier is still in work in progress at game devs for their final 1.5* version. The fire in the ufo at farm maps is a game issue too. I think they are trying to fix it too..

The ghosts are game issue too and it happens when a soldier or alien dies with cloud/fire. But they dies next turn for real.. its about game too..

Its hard to play ironman.. thx for testig the balance with that )

hey would you consider putting back the breaching charge , make it heavier or expensive to build or something , but i dont like throwing explosive like a madman at a side of the ship , and the problem is even worse inside bases when you want to take a shortcut, by the end everything is on fire and you have to wait for it to die down , it slows the game dramatically.

also while mega is usualy awesome for me , downloading with 15 mbs , it seams its not working atm so i cant download the hotfix :(

C4 is the key here, rocket launchers and flamethrowers... so far I've found the next gen of ballistic weapons almost useless, they lack range and firepower, and the shotguns are supposed to be extra effective against xenomorphs since they fire "burn shells?" well... they keep resisting even at close range.

I know it's a sci-fi game but come on, we gotta respect the laws of physics here, the amount of energy delivered at close range (1 tile away) should be enough to shatter a "basic" alien or deal extreme damage to any living organism... I'm just firing rockets and sniping, it has proven the most effective way to deal with enemies... that and fire, always kill it with fire lol.

Burn shells? The first shotgun with burn shell is tier 1s special shotgun. Nextgen shotgun is just kinetic. Your default weapons are pathetic and nextgen is a bit better the pathetic. Its your first weapon branch... you cant kill everyone with that.. :)

As short range energy.. which weapon? But you cant kill someone with a laser pointer.. so the "amount" is the key word here and it comes with more tech.. use alenium or wave weapons and you will see "amount" and with particle weapons you will tell me that "aliens are so easy to kill.." :)

im having bad time with enemie grenades, they use it at 17/18 squares away and i can hit them only with snipers at this distances and badly :) i got my entire squad sent to oblivion by 2 caesans launching gas smokes and then and explosive one, (bits of xennauts everywhere lol) i must say that i always put 3 squares of distance from my soldiers between them but maybe i must take more xD

oh and have you added dmg to the pink caesan psi ? one of my soldiers got psi attacked and got quarter of hp when i saw him lol.

oh and they can use 2 nades in the same turn lol got nuked twice :)

got insta crash when a xenoaut died on the same place as other xenonaut (poor medic)xD

he is referring to kinetic energy , energy as in force , anyway back to the subject , i agree with what he said , the problem is a lot of the early equipment is so ineffective its not even worth bringing along , when i see a alien resist a grenade i wince , same with a pointblank shotgun , have you considered messing with the number of aliens more then the strength of the aliens ?

also theres the problem of the difficulty curve , since most weapons barely scratch the aliens you are forced to use things like c4 and rockets , not using most weapons is a boring way to play the game, at least in my opinion ,unarmored Ceasans should die easy if hit but have good accuracy , unarmored Sebillian low armor high health and regeneration , high movement, low accuracy , this could in turn be balanced by the fact that alien weapons would usually kill you in 1 hit(before you develop a armor specifically for alien weapons) in turn aliens start sending in armored troops and equiped with better weapons ( this should not be to hard to time since at start there is not a lot of things you can research) after that its just trying to keep the alien slowly becoming stronger while also sending in new ship types before you send in better troops , so you can atleast begin to research/build better equipment

I nerfed the grenade ranged all ready as i remember but i will look it up now ad nerf again..

I loled (bits of xennauts everywhere lol) :)... i didnt touch any psi settings..

Caesans are easy to kill, sebillian got armour vs kinetic and fire so their skin matters.. Sebillians got low range vision range and worse acc already..

Frag grenade and rocket is kinetic damage. You need to research fire weapons.. Incinerate grenade-rocket and flame thrower are much more usefull at least against melee ones.. Shotgun is normally useless against armours.. you need to burst to kill and it destroys armour fast..

Yes your soldiers are weak at beginning and aliens are more resistant and heavy fire power.. but you need to use every aspect.. Smoke grenades, shields, vehicle.. You have 10 soldier.. DO NOT EXPECT to kill an alien 1 by 1.. nuking with 3 soldier, will kill an alien easily.. If it looks still very hard, try normal diff. Its %80 alien stats.. i tried at normal and it was not impossible..

As i said, long range alien grenade is an issue.. i will handle that.. Alien weapons range is a bit longer then you but a bit.. your rifle 10 theirs 12.. so you wont get sniped.

Yeah I meant energy as in a measurable strength either in joules or in newtons, no matter how tough you are unless you're wearing some heavy duty protection no living organism should pass a certain threshold when it comes to resistance.

I mean, you can pretty much deliver a fatal blow or a killing blow with a shotgun to an elephant if you're close enough (if he doesn't stomp you to death lol) but for some reason xenomorphs, caesans and sebillians are like "Oh so you spent 3 turns calculating how to get close to me to put the cannon in my mouth and pull the trigger of that shotgun 1 tile away? well I have bad news for you either".

And lol yeah I'm just using rockets and flamethrowers and C4, I'm losing lots of alien tech due to everything being blown up but it seems to be the only way to keep a decent ratio of enemy casualties vs xenonaut's ones. And yeah... they resist a grenade, a frag grenade thrown at their feet ;_;
