Update for version 0.33 of Xenonauts: Community Edition has been released as 0.33 HF1.


Installation (Steam users):

  • Steam will be automatically updated (may take a while until the update is available).

Installation (other users):

  • If you already have 0.33 installed, use "Modding Tools" in the game launcher to install the base X:CE mod. There are no changes to the settings or balance mods, so after updating the base mod it is enough to restart the game.
  • Otherwise, follow installation steps from the 0.33 announcement, only use 0.33 HF1's base mod instead of 0.33's .

Changes summary:


  • * Make the game start if the Windows username contains non-ASCII characters.
    * Avoid a lockup when trying to show a dialog for an event near the edge of the screen.
    * Save files are actually written to the disk at the end of saving (thus should avoid possibly creating corrupted saves if the game crashes).
    * Properly reset airplane's low-fuel flag (that requires it to return to the base) as soon as it starts refueling.
    * Fix remembering of recently used maps for ground combat. The game should be much less likely to reuse a map from ground combat if there are still other suitable maps for the terrain/ufo combination.
    * Fix fire spreading through UFOs landed on hay ground.
    * Fix fleeing sometimes actually not moving the soldier anywhere.
    * Fix tooltips for medals in the soldier equip view.
    * Fix dropping items from belt to the ground sometimes not working.
    * Fixed some minor graphical problems in soviettown terror maps.

For further details, see the 0.33 release annoucement.

I've recently started a new serious playthough after a long hiatus, and overall the game feels great. I've had one lock up (alien reaction firing me just as i've stepped on a teleporter) but otherwise the game is super stable and plays well.

Has anyone else been experiencing passive, non teleporting wraiths? I just had one on a landingship crash site that had a green plasma AOE weapon. I danced around it for who knows how many turns and it just didn't teleport away. Also, is it normal that is doesn't shoot every turn with that weapon?

I have only made it to the end of the campaign once, so I don't have a really good point of reference, but I thought the Wraiths were unusually passive too. Quite often I would spot them at a distance, withdraw, gather up my guys to engage and end the turn. When I would scout forward again the Wraith would usually be in the same spot (not having taken cover or moved or anything).

I was running without the CE Balance mod turned on though.

My men and women keep getting killed by aliens shooting through solid walls I am hiding behind. It is especially deadly when it is the assault weapons. This happens in cityscapes all the time - it's like the walls aren't even there. I can't provide a save since I am playing iron man.

Actually, it must be a map bug, because I've found I can shoot aliens with whatever weapons I want through some solid walls of buildings on cityscapes. Sadly I again have no save, but I assure you these walls look like they exist, but do not hamper bullets in any way.
