We are a paramilitary organisation ...

We have the best of the best - with some personal issues here and there. Real characters as you say nowadays ...

We do everything, from stealing to protecting transports, smuggleing weapons for those who can pay for it. We destroy organisations if the price is right and provide safe routes from A to B, even through hell if it has to be ...

Sometimes we also do some good guy stuff, but dont ask for it, except you can put enough money on the table ...

Our people are unhonorable discharged veterans or geniuses who dont feel quite valued in their former organisation. Some average guys as well who are attracted to the way we do things ... but honestly they have to be a bit crazy to be hanging around those guys ... say us ... ... everybodys a bit crazy here ...

We have been hired by some wealthy individuals who think we can save the earth and believe in our methods. This group has put their faith in us ... and most importantly, their money.

I guess it is time to do some good guy stuff again !

Whats my spleen ? World Domination ! Everybody ought to have a goal, no ? But if these aliens do as they please there will be nothing left to rule over.

What is yours, commander ?

1. Game Overview

X-Division is a complete overhauled game experience, featuring an vast amount of different enemies to capture, a new and improved, aggressive AI, 186 new weapons including katanas, 9 vehicles and 3 mechs and 13 sets of armour.

New revised Aircraft game , crafted by me which builds and extends on the existing aircraft mechanic and polishes it to the extreme. New mechanic, hit and run tactics,  new alien weapons and more .. so totally not what drages planned :). 22 new aircrafts from which 5 are alien interceptor to recruit and 24 aircraft weapons.

Enemies feauture different armor resistances, different strenght points and weaknesses. Every alien race is good and bad in and against something and you better find that out quickly before its too late, commander. Terror and base attack missions will happen frequently and will be of importance all the way to and in the end game.

Captureing aliens is immensly important in this mod as it will open up all the vital and better tech for you. Unique specialists you can only capture at terror sites, crash sites or base attacks. Special UFOs with a special goals which carry special units into battle. Special Officier Units for every phase of the game to capture to give you that special research boost you need.

Aliens will adapt to your style of playing with different strategies of aggressive overwhelming force.

" Every phase will have their own weapon branches. Ths branches will be mostly energy or ballistic based. Addidition to this your arsenal will make updated versions we call as MK in the mod. You will get the MK 1 versions as prototype and easy. For MK-2 versions, you will need to capture alien specialist and for MK-3 ultimate versions you will need to get specific things. Vehicle Weapons, Grenades and Explosives will have updated versions too.

Special UFOs with a special goals which carry special units into battle ! UFOs with their own  puposes and missions. You will see huge ufos for terror and base attacks, nearly impossible to stop at the air. You will see shuttles and special cargo ships along others. You will see any kind of ufo nearly at every phase with their upgraded stats, weapons and crew. Near endgame, you will see the real force of the Alien menace with the all mighty dreadnought and motherships." - Drages

An detailed manufacture and disassembling system for alien weapons, grenades, UFOs. A chance based, incredible intrigues, complex research tree featuring around 900 xpedia entries and lively maps with civilians and local forces appropriatelly equippted.

All of this over 4 balanced Phases over the game presenting a long and hard journey to menkinds destruction or, temporary, survival.

It is in your hands, commander.

2. Questions & Answers

 

 

Whats the recommended difficulty ?

The intended way to play this game is to always play on veteran, and to learn from your mistakes to come back stronger everytime you lose the campaign. Every death should mean something to you.

However, if that is not your favourite difficulty you can start on Easy and play your way up. The game gets harder the more you progress so there will always be an increase in difficulty and a new challenge to come, the only difference is the starting point.

Its not recommended to play on Insane, although the option is there to choose from. Its simply put just a harder version of veteran.

Good luck commander.

 

Is this version balanced ? What should I look out for ?

Every manufacture and research as well as every economic gameplay element has been implemented. However the requirement quantity has been set to the lowest level for

  • Grenades, Rockets, Melee Weapons
  • Armor, Vehicles and Vehicle Weapons
  • Aircraft and Aircraft Weapons

Economical gameplay elements which are still pending

  • Sell prices for alien loot except UFO Datacores

Things which won´t change are

  • The weapon DSB system
  • The UFO DSB system
  • The xenonaut weapon sell prices ( 1:1 )
  • UFO datacore sell prices

Please report on these issues and give us feedback on how  we can balance them.

Otherwise its pretty balanced.

Help ! I mean HELP ! Any guidance on how i should play this game ?

Here you go:

For people knowing how the game works, feel free to help others or submit things you think are important or a guidance.

 

I want to help, how do i apply ?

Yes, you are very welcome. Currently we are looking for people who can write some good stuff and good mapmakers. You can simply send me an pm about the subject and Ill see what i can do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Installation

1. To avoid complications unsubscribe to all other mods on steam, and delete your your whole mods/.. folder. Then make a fresh install of xenonauts.

2. Install the latest XCE version.

3. If you downloaded the steam workshop support mod install it now. This is to show some support but has no other purpose than that.

4. Download all 3 parts of X-Division 0.99.4: Download ( Part 1 MD5: 51646cca2290d66215e1dfde9947be33, Part 2  MD5: 1257d15b4de3ecfa12e1680cc31d078e ,
                                                                                Part 3
MD5: 0fe3a2646d3011cd1a8db0e9be1d2446 )

0.99.4 main 1.png0.99.4 main 2.png0.99.4 main 3.png

 

5. Have all 3 files together and open part 1 ( = unrar the multi rar archive ). Follow the instructions of the installer.

6. The advanced installation has some options to choose from, namely:

There are some optional mods you can activate/deactivate. Lets go through them one by one:

1. X-Division Easy Airgame

  • X-Division Easy Airgame increases all autoresolve winning chance calculations by around 70%, totally throwing off my balancing and making you a favour. Additionally the dmg to the winning squad gets reduced from 30% to 20% and the coeff for the winning squad is set from 2.0 to 1.3. 0% winning chance is 0% below 0.875 and 100% is above 1.25, meaning that when the autoresolve calculator shows 100% you have a reasonable chance to emerge without any harm from the Airfight.
    It rather removes the necessity to play the airgame and replaces it with a one click solution.

Recommended state: ON if you want the airgame to be easier autoresolveable.

2. COM - Ambient Sounds/COM - Ambience Forest

  • This mods add ambient sound and add the least amount of instability to the game - it still makes the game more unstable.

Recommended State: OFF if you dont want to risk a higher instability for beautiful sounds. XCE 0.34.3 should fix the instability.

3.  COM -   [V1.08] Jsleezy's Real Fighter Portrait Pack

  • Adds alternative soldier faces to the game. Deactivate Khall´s more Portraits if you are using this to avoid art inconsistencies

Recommended State: OFF if you dont want to play with more realistic faces. XCE 0.34.3 should fix the instability.

 

Checklist in case you want to change something later on:

  • You only have X-Division Workshop Support if you subscribed and installed it from the steam workshop
  • The modloader needs to be EXACTLY in this Priority order.
  • ALL mods you want to play with need to have a "YES" in the Active column, if you want to play with X-Division Easy Airgame you have to activate it ( I dont )
  • You shouldn`t play X-Division with any other mods than stated. Only cosmetic mods are allowed and only if you know exactly what you are doing. Keep in mind every savegame is unique to its mods its saved with.

 

7. Apply the latest available patch - 3.1 Latest Patch section ^^. Every patch contains all prior changes as well.

This is a picture.png

 

You did it. Welcome onboard, Commander ! :)

 

 

3.1 Latest Patch
( theres a patch history in the third post - with downloads )

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.
  • Before applying patches withdraw all scientists and engineers from their current projects. You can reapply them afterwards.
  • You only need to download and install the latest Patch avaialble, it contains all prior fixes as well.
  • The .4 to .41 version is savegame compatible
  • As a basic rule never patch during Ground Combat

 

Installation:

  1. Download the X-Division 0.99.41 Update: https://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/31-x-division-latest-patch-09941/ ( MD5: a9e16d6951dff9f0ce49d6807659bb66 )
  2. Follow the instruction of the installer
  3. 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 Easy Airgame or change the soldier models. Enjoy :).

3.2 Troubleshooting

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. 

Sincerely yours, Drages

 

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.

 

I think i got a bug, can you help me ?

If you want some help, make a bug report or think that something is not the way it is supposed to be, add a full screenshots of your whole modloader and your savegame ( geoscpae only ).

 

Why does the first start take so long to load ?

Thats normal. X-Division is quite a big mod so loading all of its ressources takes time.

 

Help ! I cant click on anything in the geoscape ! Hotkey are working though.

Make sure that everything is the way it should be and then:

Simply start up the game, go straight to new game, start a new game, load your current save, save it, exit and restart the game. This should now be fixed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Known Bugs ( at least until the next patch )

Units can spawn outside map tiles in base attacks - If that happens make sure you did in that mission what you wanted to do, then save and exit. Start the game with the Xenonauts_gc_editor.exe in mods/xce/... and load up your save. Press "V" to kill every non xenonaut unit. Save and exit and continue to play like normal.

 

 

 

 

 

5. The extended Knowledge section where people ask frequently upcoming question and which answers might be insightful for you

 

 

Why does this look halfway done ?

Its halfway done. I will write the rest at a later date :).

 

I just produced Alien Flamer Rifle 4:1B but the weapon doesnt show up.

Thats not a production but a dissasemble. You disassemble X alien weapons for X ballistic/energy/antimatter/chemical cores. You need the cores later for better weapon production. This is the disassemble system. You can sell the weapons either for good money or produce cores for better weapon production. Your choice :).

 

I just produced an Alien Scout DSB but i cant find it ?

DSB means disassemble. You are disassembling the UFO and get its part. The Xpedia has detailed information what parts it EXACTLY produces so check that out. Those are needed for aircrafts and aircraft weapons. Most aircraft need the engine, the controlsystem and alien computers. The weapon systems are mostly for aircraft weapons. This is the UFO disassemble and aircraft production system.

 

What does your "fixed" mean ?

The problem you are stating has 1. been noted 2. completely been fixed. This means you will get the fix with the next patch. In urgent situations ill put up a direct link where you will be able to download the patch for exactly the stated problem but usually you will get all fixes with the next patch available. You can check the Known Bugs part in the OP before you report one to check if it doesnt already has been noticed. This is also where we put emergency links directly beside the stated bug.

From the few bits I've seen, the air game is incredibly punishing. The two starting condors can barely keep their shit together against a Light Scout. For the rest, well, I've lost four condors in two weeks. One pair against a Fighter (I should have won but I massively screwed up the manual engagement), and one pair against a Scout (no error here, they stood no chance from the very start). This isn't a problem because the Scouts seem to love landing (keeping my cash flowing) but the Foxtrot can't come soon enough. Corvettes are going to be major FUN at this rate.

Quote

Charon:

Yes, the Airgame is painted in my needs. Gone are the times where you said "The first UFO, ah, one condor should be able to take care of that". Condors are BAD, very BAD. You are practically fighting with sticks and stones right now. My advice: get as many condors as you can get. My first base has 9 hangars, my second base has 8, and my third base has 10 hangars. Build them all on your first day. ... the bases i mean.

With some more experience you will be able to handle the airfights pretty easily. I mean, they are scouts and lightscouts after all ... . But you can only make experience if you have enough condors. Soon you will know EXACTLY what to do and how to behave in the airfight. At this point corvettes will crush your dreams. Just ... at ... the ... right ... time. When you thought you started to be able to handle the fight for air supremecy. What will follow are a lot of smokeing airplanes and your need to think a way out of this mess.

 

 

Heres how you L2P:

 

  • Knowledge:

 This is the first step. Collect information. The most important information is the HP. You will only get this information AFTER you brought that specific UFO down and SUCCESSFULLY raided it.

The next step is to count your total dmg. Do i have enough dmg to bring this UFO down ? Other questions are:
How fast is this UFO ?
Can i outturn it ? Can it outturn me ?
What weapons does it use ?
After some time you will get a handle on the information and put it together what this UFO is so special about. Let me stress this again: You can only learn through EXPERIENCE. Nobody has yet learned how to handle a situation without having a minimum of experience. This means destroyed aircraft.

Learn to handle that you are up against the unknown.

 

  • Get the right aircraft/weapon lodout:

This means that you learn what weapon is good in what situation and equipt it on the appropriate aircraft. An example is the fighter UFO in the first Phase. Get Asierus and 2 short range mauser cannons and you will destroy a fighter 1 on 1 with only sustaining 15 % dmg. Learn what aircraft is good against what UFO. Learn how a weapon behaves. 

 

  • ADAPT your aircraft/weapon lodout to YOUR PLAYSTYLE.

DECISIONS: This is the utmost perfection of the airgame. After you learned how your enemy behaves and learned to deploy simple and advanced tactics like baiting, holding down, piercing, rolling into the enemy, choseing the right angle, fishing, throttleing and learned how to have the appropriate aircraft and weapon lodout, tailored to YOUR playstyle you will know what is possible. Than you will have different options in your head to choose from. Do i make it simply but lose one foxtrot ? Do i have enough fuel to bait it out ? Do i do 50% dmg and draw back and reengage again ? Is it worth it to sustain 40% dmg on this aircraft. These are ALL your options.
Choseing from ALL of this options is a GEOSCAPE decision which will determine your future options and possbilities, thus setting your path to victory or defeat.

 

Why is it so hard ?

Its not, it has specific goals:

1. Throw you into a situation where you are CLEARLY inferior. Activate your brain and think your way out of it. Its just an AI after all, not a human.
2. The gradual mastering of the situation is an immense factor of satisfaction, provided you can do it. Try again or start on lower difficulties.
3. Baffling you RIGHT at the time you think you are starting to get a grip on it, throwing you in another crisis. Saying "Start to learn to fight your way out of disadvantageous positions."

  • This is the most important point: Decisions. Even if a moderate skilled person with the right aircraft/weapon lodout cannot switch on the autowin button, but has to make a decision on how he wants to play his cards/aircrafts. If he screws up he screws up. If he hesitates in the wrong moment, he may pay the price for it. Theres no clear right or wrong. Its an individual experience which shows you and your way with dealing with challenging uncertainties, most importantly it shows YOUR way. There will never be a "OMG, its that UFO again. This is so boring"

or you activate Easy Airgame and autoresolve

 

The next three posts are the continuation of the OP, please take a moment to glance over it.

X - Division

All for One

V0.99.10 for 1.5+ and 0.34.1 XCE

 

Hi People who likes Xenonauts, played any X-Division Mod and new starters!

After one year, finally we managed to finish X-Division 0.99. Finish would be a wrong term here to be honest. It's just at playable state with %90 of the content we want to be in. So you will see many bug fixes, balancing patches and new content/alternate gaming DLC's!... 

X-Division 0.99 is HUGE.. yeah huge, maybe more then enough. It's nearly remake of the whole game with 10x more content. We worked on every code available for editing/modding. We used every thing possible to give you different/enchanted experience.

I say "we" now because the mod resurrected by "Charon". I want to thank him specially here. And "Draku" who never post any comment here, was with me for any kind of crazy bug fixing/testing. Without him, this mod will be a bug feast :). These 2 great people make this mod continue. As a 2D/3D art editor, i could find to work on all the images i want when the coding was at safe hands.

This mod got an endless coding. Countless aliens, weapons, armors, vehicles, planes, UFOs, researches, manufactures, items and more done for this mod. As i lead the mod as idea and plan, i made ground combat calculations, all visual materials creating and editing, AI modding and main logic at mod progress. Charon created research, manufacture and xpedia lines, his own totally different air game and full control of file structures of the mod which is a huge work for a mod with that size. His ideas and point of view to things in game, enchanted the mod and saved it at many points. Draku worked like a digital bug fixer, really even the game coders itself probably would not able to see bugs better then him. I still think he is an AI living in this forum :). He is still decoding the mod. 

X-Division 0.99 is totally different then 0.98. Even there is only maybe less then 0.01 version difference, because it's my style of naming. X-Division 1.0 won't be different but will have much more content, balance and bug free. As our modding team got control over every bit of mod coding of this game, we don't fear any bug, so even now there nearly non-game breaking bug only some visuals and some little typo problems. For that reason we can fix anything about the mod. Our first concern is balance. Charon is a hardcore player which likes it hard and i am a bit sadist and on side of enemy. So as the player you are against us. Our mission is to give you an invasion, a real one, an aggressive one. But we don't want it unplayable, so we need a balanced game at least normal difficult. 

This mods main point is to make everything useful against aliens. You can't miss any aspect of the game. You can't play it without vehicles, because you don't like them for example. There is tons of things for you to use and every thing is a counter for a different situation. Aliens got everything and they will use anything against you.

AI... this game got maybe one of the best AI coding i saw at my entire life. The AI coding is very hard and needs hours of testing and understanding. I don't remember how many hours i looked for that file. We became friends even. Then he talked to me. The vanilla AI even the famous XNT mod AI was so tactical which aliens act like yourself. This AI made the aliens very self defending if you ask me. They wanted to live and for this reason they mostly run from you when you attack them full squad. This was maybe logical for a real living thing but not at a game. I gave them much more killing will. Now they will charge you, hear you, get together and ambush you. New melee creatures will rush you and the ranged ones will get positions when you try to survive at melee range. Some special rank enemies will take time to ambush you when you were fighting with the ones which in front of you. The enemy tanks and drones will give make you feel like you are a little infantry. Your vehicles will be your shield as much as they survive. As short, at a mission, you won't be the one who comes to hunt the aliens down. You will be the one who hunted. NEVER rush.. never.. 

You need to have right weapon. This is the key for this mod. Aliens got very different resistances and weakness. If you try to use ballistic against a hard skinned creature, you won't able to kill it even your entire squad nuke it. At that point, a little energy rifle or a rocket launcher can save the day. 

Air game is another story. X-Division's standard air game style is not here yet. Because i could not find a time for it, Charon created the air game with his own style with my visual support. It's crazy. It uses totally different tactics. Totally different weapons at our side and UFO's. Rather then just going and kill at one run, now you need to organize your air wings for difficult and bigger targets. Sometimes you need to attack and run, sometimes you need to sacrifice your wings. It's ultra fun if you like a hardcore air game but if you don't like this games air part, we got easy autosolve airgame mod for you. I am working on a 0.98 style air game too. So you will have many choices.

Mechs.. you got mechs, aliens got mechs.. mechs are cool.. no need more info here :)

Ufo's.. Battlecruisers, armored scouts, special shuttles with unique crew, special terror ships, battlecarriers with drones, dreadnoughts and motherships with their own art!... They got an armada out there. You will have nearly every UFO at every phase of the game with the crew of that timeline. X-Division got 39 UFO's with their own missions, stats, colors and crews. The most variety you can ever see in this game. 

One thousand "1000" researches and manufactures as much as this. This is probably a record not only for mods, for gaming history. Choice wisely which to research, what you need as first. Get a weapon from ballistic, energy and explosive/incinerate damage types as soon as possible, then you can update whatever you want. Go to missions with every damage types because you can never know which enemies you will fight. Even you know the crew of ufo, they will have a mix of aliens with different resistances. If you go only ballistic, there will be some aliens at least with heavy kinetic resistances.

Xenopedia, named as X-Pedia with this mod, got nearly 1000 entry with unique pictures for everything even for default items and researches. But we need writers guys so badly.. please join our team for description, X-Pedia and story writing.

Visuals, my specialty.. I created numberless new projectiles, explosions, weapons, units, enemies... everything. You will have different color and shaped projectiles for weapons and different colored explosives and gasses. As a 3D animator, i created mechs and vehicles. The game now got more then 100 sound effects too. Draku checked and still checking every weapon as visual and sound effect. We got totally new UI for every scene you visit too. UI credits goes to Draku again. If a red short caesan alien sounds like an alien and throw you cannons, uhm my bad :)... 

Terror and Base assault mission will be done by alien terror ships which probably you won't shot down. This missions will have special alien commandos. The vanilla game could not give you enough tension for those missions.. Now you got it. Fear it.. 

Don't forget that, first 2-3 month, until corvettes are your tutorial time. You need to get the game aspects and main weapon updates. After first phase, the game will hit you hard. The invasion will start after that moment.

Please don't compare this mod with first missions. This is the only big mod who got serious mid and late game progress. All other mods out there mostly concentrated for early game, early weapons and early everything.. only some mods got the whole game covered and mostly over one aspect. This mod is the only total conversion mod left at development still and it will continue. 

Beware of Alien Invasion commander, they don't have jokes anymore..

X - Division

 

All for One

V0.99.11 for 1.5+ and 0.34.1 XCE

 

 

Charons X-Division next steps

 

  • Implement a proper endgame

Dont worry, the endgame is properly implemented but only 10% of the content is done yet. This requires that we set some cornerstones for the story, which havent been set yet. I also need to test to what extend i can set up the final mission as.

  • Rebalance all terror maps and agree on a standartise map size

Most terror sites are incredibly hard and unfair because most of the maps are not made for that many alien troops. You simply get pinned down before you can either take advantage of the terrain or set up a proper position. I want to make all maps bigger and standartise them so players wont have a disadvantage because they drew a bad map. With this we can also increase the civilian and local forces count by 8 for each, so 16 in total, or another appropriate number.

I have zero map makeing experience so I would welcome every good map maker who wants to work with us.

  • Actually implement the best psi game ANYBODY has ever seen

I think the psi game has a lot of potential, but it hasnt been unlocked yet. Im heavily going to take notes from kabills changed psi game and add my ideas and philosophy to it, or the other way around.

  • Implement additional dropships rangeing from 1 appropriate ship for every phase to special ops dropships ( still have to think about that one )

Same like with the maps, i have zero experience with this so i might need some guidance in time or find it out for myself. The soldier number wont change though it will just have smoother steps from 8-10-12 to 8-9-10-11-12 and spec op dropships will have special attributes. Especially the chinook speed is too low in the beginning.

 

This, at least, are the most important next steps for X-Division to take in my oppinion.

 

Keep your support up and hopefully we´ll see the day these changes see a proper daylight.

 

Cheers Charon

 

 

Patch History

 

DAY 7 Patch 0.99.11 https://mega.nz/#!pYhGQKqQ!pyInIV6IeT23BkxXyhT6i_DS2RSAMa7chTKYJINqRZE ( MD5: 15821e1f2baa29ee760219bbc12c4e5f )

  • fixed shuttle datacores being impossible to get
  • 99% of all reported bugs are fixed
  • more bug fixes
  • and much more

 

DAY 16 unofficial Patch 0.99.2    https://mega.nz/#!IJAiCDAK!FcYkZB4r9m9Fw32pulYlBgELbB-zpTTmZxV7VtShAVI ( MD5: 43b9951df58c9ef83279eac99693ee5d )

  • terror battleship datacore can now be aquired
  • khalls tundra garage fix ;)
  • Wraiths should now be able to teleport
  • The research descriptions are in work. Heres a word from sfarrelly: 

    "With this update we've also included research descriptions for 95% of phase 1 & 2 (the other 5% are still under development and those techs have been marked as XXDescriptionXX).

    If you find any stage 1 or 2 tech without a description, please let us know and we will fix it, there are over 1000 techs in this mod, so it's quite possible some were missed.

    Also, if you spot any typos or grammatical errors, let us know and we will fix them."

 

DAY 27 Patch 0.99.3  https://mega.nz/#!ZIJECBAa!qhgk4nkSeHydM6MJ2hyeB_gkriik22RpPlyzt4sBGm0 ( MD5: e23f6aba3b50ddaad12b726e60ad85c5 )

Big changes: As of 0.99.3 X-Division no longer needs the Part 2 mod because the research file is now a merged one. So please deactivate X-Division 0.99 Beta Part 2 mod in the modlauncher if you are playing X-Division 0.99.3 or higher. This will cause the no click issue to your save game. To fix this, start up the game, go straight to new game, start a new game, load your save, save your current playthrough. Exit and reenter. This should now be fixed.

  • Melee creatures should now be able to attack vehicles, and they make great use of that
  • countries are now available to retake. For now a Fortress will spawn in the lost country and all bases in that country before it can be retaken with around 50 relationship points. This will change in the future as the retaken country missions will get its own map pools and its own increase per ticker values. Making the hardest to retake mission impossible, but still playable.

DAY 256 Version 0.99.4 "Enemies inbound"
Link

  • Increased damage and stun damage for shotguns/carbines by 15%
  • Terror Battleship: Increased Turn Rate, Added Drones
  • Lotus: Change weapon outload from 2 heavy and 1 normal to 1 heavy and 2 normal weapon slots
  • Increased the speed of all drones
  • Increased recovery threshold of soldiers to the intended level, soldiers have a chance to be recovered to up to 49 damage points below 0 hp
  • Moved the shields to the new One Time Updating system
  • Buffed First Aid Kit
  • Aircombat Radio Sounds 2.1 V1.0 integrated
  • Revised medipacks and first aid. Medipacks now have 4 stages and the feedback from the community has been integrated. First Aid is now good at what it actually should be: quickly patching up wounds while having less healpower per weight than a regular medipack
  • Revised the bleeding system, increased bleeding chance, decreased damage per wound
  • Anti missiles are now infinitely available
  • increased alien surival chance on UFO crash = more aliens, lower chance that valuable operators gt killed during the crash
  • Race research bonus increased,tweaked and normalised to around +20% per race, catching the maximum amount of different units yields the maximum bonus, medics have a seperate +8% bonus
  • The Hive updated to 0.9, new models, new units, completely revised stats and AI, new gas animations, new abilities .. and more ..
  • New and revised andron race into andronx, new units, new AI, .. you get the drill ... :)
  • New, flat suppression system
  • Increased bravery gain per medal from 1 to 3, making medals more than a armour decoration
  • Decreased weight for all flamethtowers and their ammo to be below a hmg, and increased its damage by 100%
  • It is now possible to retake xenonaut bases within 48 hours if you at least put up a fight to save it. The retaken xenonaut base will lose all of its scientist/trolls/aircraft
  • Increased Game losing condition from mostly 4 lost countries to:  9/9/8/8
  • It is now possible to retake lost countries. Once a country gets lost an alien base spawns in its parimeter. To retake a country all alien bases have to be eliminated - including the spawned one.
  • Psi Game v0.5:
    Decreased chance of berzerk happening from 10% to 1%
    Decreased stabilisitation from 40 to 20 points
    decreased Moral regeneration per turn from 10 to 2
    Basically doubled the bonus for the highest officier on the mission from maximum 20 points to 40
    Increased Vehicle loss malus
    increased chance for an moral event happening for every point below 40 from 1.75 to 3.5
    The most important change is that suppression fire no longer reduces moral, but by 1 - 2 points. Wounds also only do half of teh damage in moral points
    increased bonus for aliens when killing civilian/xenonauts/locals. If you encounter an alien on a rampage it might be very hard to suppress him
    Decreased fear damage from -80% to -50%
    decreased message duration overall. This can be further decreased
  • Brand new code: Safety in Numbers:
    At the start of the turn, the game looks for the highest 2 (!!!!!!!!!) ranked soldiers in range of every soldier and adds a bonus threshold of both values together. If the highest ranked soldiers in range are a captain and a major the bonus pool will be 5 + 6 = 11.
    This bonus will NOT (!!!!!!) get taken into considerations when calculating % reductions like fear. If a soldier has 50 moral points and gets a bonus of 11, then a reduction of 60% means -30 points and the total moral points will be 31.
    The bonus pool cant get reduced. This means if you have a bonus of 11, then you will never be able to have less than 11 moral points, no matter the circumstances.
    The Safety in Numbers code line is not so much as a bonus pool, but rather as a failsafe net, which lifts you higher up and prevents you from falling below a certain value. It is a quite THE prevention for your soldiers to fall below a certain value and panic. So ... dont go alone, take some comrades with you !
    The bonus pool will get cleared and refilled at the start of every turn again. This happens BEFORE the chance of an moral event is calculated. This means you could lose moral points if you went away from your squad, and it could mean that you will gain moral points when the soldier gets into the range of higher ranked officiers again.
  • revised antimatter weapons
  • Implemented human stun variant with 1/2 of the damage
  • All stun gases now have multiple per tile properties - this makes the alien stun gas an powerful position denier tool
  • changed manufacture requirements for all upgraded grenades/ockets to need its predecessor
  • increased TU cost for alphareaperclaws from 30 to 40 %TU, same for omega and zeta reapers
  • Improved tooltips design in the soldier equipment screen
  • a lot more


Charons Changes mod:

  • Increased AI aircombat thinking chance on veteran from 0.5 to 0.7
  • Fixed Phase 1 Division and Laser MK3 being in the wrong category
  • Added different requirements for Phase 2 MK3 weapons
  • New visuals for aircombat
  • Increased crouching consumption from 3 TU to 10 TU, and turning while crouched from 1 to 2 TU, increased the bonus while kneeling from +20% to +30% accuracy and +20% to +30% cover. This change is to demonstrate that you cant simply make a sprint then throwing yourself into a crouch and still expect to have better aim. It also makes a real decision, because crouching and uncrouching now takes away 20 TUs, which is substantial. This makes the alien way more dangerous when suppressed - so take care, commander ;)
  • Revised character panel drag costs: Into hand: from 12 to 4, Into Backbag: from 4 to 10, Into Belt: from 4 to 2, on the ground: from 0 to 0, quickthrow: from 8 to 8
  • Increased recover time for destroyed airplane to 144 hours

X - Division

 

All for One

V0.99.11 for 1.5+ and 0.34.1 XCE

 

What people say about X-Division in more than 1 sentence

 

On 23.8.2016 at 4:10 AM, YaK said:

I had two really tough battles and it was fun, because it was totally not expected:

  1. Engaged a light shuttle, crashed it and assaulted it with my chopper that was coming back from a really good assault of an anlien outpost. It should have been easy. but it was not. 8 Guys, readily armed (hey, i just had assaulted an alien outpost! I geared them with EVERYTHING it could be useful! There was Xeno Queen, Praetorian and whatever inside there!) and a Tank against a tiny shuttle's surviving crew! What could go wrong?
    REAPERS. LOTS OF THEM. I couldn't also keep the position in my sieged chopper trying to kill them while coming. Too much of them.
    After several failded attempts, i try a tactical approach. Just in front of my chinook, there was a container with stairs (thank's skitso for making them climblable! :D). I take position there, with my Shield man closing the breach on the stairs, hoping i could kill everyone coming before they destroys his shield. It worked. Just one civilian survived, hiding in furthermost corner of the map. It was really fun! :D
  2. I assaulted a medium one, cause after destroying his two heavy fighters escort, it landed. It was a new one, an extreme landing ship, but I had my best men rock and ready, they've done the impossible until now, so i wasn't worried. There was Caesean. Nice. But the Xenomorphs seeems a bit different. BOOM. 2 Guys one-shotted. Xeno warriors and Xeno stalkers. A Nightmare. It seems the plot of the second Alien. I Win just because a Caesan miss his shot and hit the Stalker for 80 dmg that was just in front of my chopper door, with my man without any tu's, ready to slaughter everything inside with the help of the hell that was outside coming. After my lucky resistance i took a break, open a beer and lighted a cigarette, thinking "What should i do? Should i gater the nearest artifacts and go away? All my men are maimed and without lots of ammo, could i breach the UFO'S door? My tank has just two shoots! In the end i tried. I was scared as hell. Two Cyberdisk in my way to the UFO. Damn. I took cover and patiently tear them down. The last one exploded on the UFO's door, opening it to me. Really a lucky break. The first floor was fair enough, just five troops. At this point i was really scared. Until now, EVERY control room was a nightmare. This time only TWO guys stayed inside, a psion and che officer. I was so happy i could have killed them just with my medipacks :D

 

Great work guys, considering it's not polished yet, this is a really cool mod, causing me a lot of fun!

Recently picked Xenonauts up after playing the XPiratez mod for openxcom and absolutely falling in love with the original xcom (I'm a long war veteran)

My first impressions of this mod (got to division weapons on easy before restarting on veteran) is absolutely amazing. 

That feeling of terror when i heard an unknown screaming sound, chalked up to some ambient sound, then the next turn the first xenomorph warrior i've seen comes running at my squad out of fog of war... 

THIS MOD IS AMAZING

UGH, Now to wait 5 HOURS for the Beta to download....impatient much...YES.  Sometimes I really don't like living in the middle of nowhere...have to download using over the air server limited speed but at least it's broadband.  But the air is clean and the nightskys are DARK--can see the milky way from horizon to horizon--which I would have loved using my 10 inch scope if my vision had gone to he??.

This is a steam discussion which is currently ongoing. I find it very informative:

Hey! Thank you for giving a chance. We need a good writer for sure. There is no former english speaker at mod team.

 


I can indeed write an essay and the whole story, but im the coder. So i will do the creative work when theres nothing to code left ... never.

Let me rephrase what Drages said with my and some borrowed words.

I tested it yesterday for a short time. It looks promising, quite an astounding work, yet I was slightly confused by a few things.

Many texts are placeholders or very badly written, with tons of typoes. I see this is a beta, but the missing descriptions can be confusing in game, especially when you want to craft something and have no idea what it is.

 


Xpedia entries have all the pictures and none of the words. However i provided all teh necesssary and vital information for every xpedia entry. If you feel theres missing something please report it.

We´ll remove them asap. They are developer items and are not meant to be build.
 

Quote

 

Ursprünglich geschrieben von OzoneGrif:

The science unlocks many projects and items for the workshop simultaneously. It would be less overwhelming and more gratifying to spread your gains along the path of the game.

 


Let me say this straight: this is not the vanilla game :). For better or for worse. Theres no "streamlined" experience anymore which takes you at the hand and shows you all the things one by one and leads you to a comfortable victory. This is harder. It is more complex. Nobody will tell you what to do. Not much hints will be given. You will have to crave for every little experience and knowledge. You have to take it slow and look closely. Heres the quote from the starting xpedia:
"Spend our funds wisely and always look for opprtunities to learn. Its our only effective weapon we have, commander."

Now that we have cleared this let me elaborate on the idea of this.

It`s decisions.

You will have a lot of researches, because you can choose which way you want to go, Only one thing is for sure: You cant research all at once.

Not only that, its decisions in everything. Economy. Manufacture. Research. Earth Coverage. Aircraft Superiority. Detection Range. Weapon Equipment.
The path is yours to take. The only thing which is sure is that you cant have it all. Take your path and makle it work. If you dont, well, thats the untimely end for earth.

Alien ships tends to land very often right at the beginning of the game. I don't think scouts are supposed to land in the first months. I love the original game's progression, it would be amazing to preserve it.

On the second mission, I was attacked by a f'ing reaper. What the...? :D

The base shotgun is incredibly underpowered, making it almost useless compared to rifle. I also don't understand why its range was lowered so much.

The first men given have very high stats, yet they are unable to throw a grenade right. Untrained soldiers stats should be around 50.

You can't open the alien doors, which kinda make sense, but can be a game breaker : If you're out of ammo or bombs, you can't finish the mission anymore. Also are aliens able to open the door themselves? I've never seen them peek outside. They do it often in the vanilla game.

Overrall, this is way harder harder than vanilla. On my three first missions, I lost 7 men. Usually I lose none. This is mostly due to the fact that I can't do precise shoots anymore, and the useless shotgun.

 


Let me quote from Long War:
 

Quote

 

Q: I'm fairly new to XCom. What difficulty should I start with?
A: Normal.

Q: I'm an XCOM veteran. What difficulty should I start with?
A: Normal.

Q: But I'm really awesome at -- 
A: Sorry to interrupt, but just start with Normal. We don't have easy difficulties in this mod that hold your hand while you learn the ropes and we've removed every bit of code we can find that cheats for the player on the lower difficulties. It's going to be hard. The other difficulties are just harder versions of Normal; feel free to move up when you get a handle on all the new mechanics.

AND

Q: Say what? Ten HP Outsiders with regeneration in the first downed UFO mission? I love all the new XCOM options but don't like the difficulty. Why did you make a mod that is so hard?

A: This mod was made by people who loved the vanilla game and saw lots of opportunities within the engine for much deeper strategic and tactical play and a greater variety of problems to throw at the player. When someone tells us it is too hard, there might be any of three things going on:
 

The player hasn't adapted to the changes in the mod and expects their suboptimal strategies to succeed (we believe this is the case with outsiders). ( X-Division: Some tutorials will come but they are not upo yet, so you have to rely on your instincts)
 

The player's definition of fun is different from ours; they expect the game to provide them easier situations, make solutions more readily available or be geared to provide the illusion of challenge but actually make it pretty easy to win. In this case the player should play an easier difficulty setting and/or use the Cinematic Mode Second Wave option, which gives accuracy bonuses to both XCOM troops and aircraft. They player can also mod Long War to their personal preferences or play another mod. Long War isn't for everyone.
 

The mod really is unreasonably hard (or bugged in a way that makes it too hard) and should be changed. Specific feedback about the situation and how you attempted to address helps us; general complaints about difficulty really won't induce us to make any changes.

 


This is my oppinion as well. Some help will be up soon, if we can make it, but dont expect anything yet. Its hard and X-Division is even harder.

I had the same problem with XCOM, then beaglerush introduced me to new concepts. We hope we can do something similar.

Found a typo in the xenopedia: Alien Lightning Rifle 4 for 1 ballistic core should be energy core.

Looks fine on the mfg screen.

I'm not sure if it is intentional, but grenades cannot blast a door, while hunter's division machinegun can.

Looking into manufactures.xml:

It seems that disassembling alien weapons give strange number of energy cores. For example

5AWP -> 4EC while 3xAWHP -> 2EC, so
1EC=1.25AWP
1EC=1.5AWHP
----------------------
Means AWP > AWHP

Looking into manufactures.xml:

It seems that disassembling alien weapons give strange number of energy cores. For example

5AWP -> 4EC while 3xAWHP -> 2EC, so
1EC=1.25AWP
1EC=1.5AWHP
----------------------
Means AWP > AWHP

 

thats correct

Advanced medipack seems too heavy compared to the normal one.

I consider that a feature. Dedicated medics are now a thing.

I do not have an XDivision_099_4 in my mods list; i followed the installation instructions to the T.

Is this a compatibility issue with Steam version of Xenonauts, or was i linked to the wrong download via the instructions?

Also, on another note, left click doesn't work and hence the game is unplayable

 

(Sorry about the double picture post, its the same thing)

6. The modloader should look like this MINUS the things you dont have or dont want.

XDivision_099_4 is X-Division 0.99 Beta and XDivision 0.99_3 Part 2 is X-Division 0.99 Beta Part 2:

Check your mod order and your activated ones once again.

Edit: Also deactivate the steam version for now. The wrong name has been given to teh steam version.

Now that i think about it, delete it and dont install it again but put it a but higher in the modloader priority so that XCE doesnt freek out.

We´ll fix this soon.

I have, repeatedly.

That, however, does not change the let click problem, nor the fact that your instructions declare that there should be an XDivision_099_4 file and there isn't one to be found. So, once again, is that an incorrect download link error, or are the instructions wrong?

Ok, looks like we have to make this clearer :).

You did nothing wrong and everything is almost perfect.

1. The modlaoder picture is wrong. 

XDivision_099_4 is X-Division 0.99 Beta and XDivision 0.99_3 Part 2 is X-Division 0.99 Beta Part 2 ( we dont have a good modloader picture because it keeps remembering the old names, thats not our side though)

2. I guess you installed the steam mod after the download

This is why you have 2 x-division mods in your list

 

In order to fix this

  • unsubscribe from the steam workshop mod and delete X-Division 99 Beta ( NOT THE 5 GB VERSION) if its there
  • get the order right

Highest Priority is 1.

  1. Easy Airgame
  2. X-Division Beta 2 Part 2
  3. X-Division Beta
  4. Follow down teh list of mods from the modloader picture from point 19. on
  • Every mod needs to be active, so "Yes"
  • DONT have ANY other mod active than is shown or in another order

Guys and Girls, i need some feedback. Does your modloader read "X-Division 0.99.1" or " X-Division Beta" ?

I would ask everybody who downloaded Charons Changes to download them again. Merge and overwrite.
