General Advice

When switching between mods/installing new ones it is recommended to clear out/delete the C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Goldhawk Interactive\Xenonauts\internal folder to make sure the appropriate scripts are loaded. At least until you know what you are doing.

Dont have 2 XDivision mods at your mod directory, no matter the version differences, they bug the modloader in unknown ways.

The Difficulty modifier in the gameconfig.xml doesnt work for humanAirplaneSpeed*** and humanAirplaneRange***. Only the humanAirplaneSpeedNormal and humanAirplaneRangeNormal will get taken on all difficulties. This is a known bug since 2014, lets hope the other difficulty modifiers work as intended. As a general rule: dont trust the difficulty modifier too much, if you wanna make changes set the ***Normal Values to the value you want.

META

If you "install" a mod it takes the  <Name>***</Name>, if you copy it directly into you mods/... folder it takes the folders name as the mods name in the modloader.

Announcement

 

Every game update and X:CE update resets the modlauncher order and the activation/deactivation status to its liking, messing up every individual setup you might have had before.

 

So please, if you receive an update through Steam or install a new version of vanilla/XCE recheck your modloader order and activation status, just like you would when you install a new game or new mod.

 

Keep in mind that EVERY save is unique to its modloader setup it is saved with. Loading a save with a different modloader order, even if they are the same mods, can and will cause problems alll along the way.

I wouldnt advice to use the "delete mod" button in the modloader, its buggy.

If you "install" a mod it takes the  <Name>***</Name>, if you copy it directly into you mods/... folder it takes the folders name as the mods name in the modloader.

NEVER USE THE MODLOADER DELETE BUTTON, ITS BUGGED AS HELL. Rather delete the mod folder from your mods/... folder directory. If you have a subscribed workshop mod then unsubscribe first then manually delete the folder in your mods/... directory.

It's very nice that the install manual says "THE MOD LOADER HAS TO BE EXACTLY IN THIS ORDER" but the image shown does not tell me what's above slot 9, good job guys.

7. The modloader should look like this MINUS the things you dont have or dont want, except for the things you ABSOLUTELY need ( Requirement Section ). The mods you dont see are ALL DEACTIVATED, so you see only the mods you need, in the correct order. Check if the mods are activated or not.

8. Apply the latest available patch. Every patch contains all prior changes as well.

I get that this is still not finished, but guys, get your arses in gear. The xenopedia is one of the most important aspects of the game (Am I alone on thinking that?) - you have tons of content (over 4gb in fact), but with how unfinished the xenopedia entries are, it's as wide as an ocean but as shallow as a puddle.

If you happen to come from the steam workshop.

This mod is %98 stable. If you got any weird problems like aliens without guns, strange visual errors, game crashes, they should be about wrong install or mod loader issues. Be sure that you got X:CE, X-Division and X-Division Patch is installed and then come to our topic with your save game and we will help you. 

Ill add this to the OP.

If this is not going fast enough for you, you can apply to help us, if you want. But reading the letters we send you is the minimum requirement, so please keep this in mind.

 

About your modloader order:

This doesnt look like the modloader in the OP. Read, the ... i mean look at the picture closely.

post 2.png

This doesnt look correctly either. The picture provided in the OP looks different.

  1.  you need to create them in the aicrafts.xml
  2. add them to the items.xml
  3. add the aircombatsweapons to the aircraftweapons.xml and items.xml
  4. define the crew in the ufocontent folder
  5. add them in maptypes.xml
  6. create the UFO itself in the tiles and map folder.

Is it possible to not draw a map, and take the type available? I did so (on version 1.09), but I did not can load the mission map with a new UFO.

I have no clue what you are talking about, but there is no map in my instructions.
