[1.65 + XCE 0.35] Xtended Soldier Backgrounds

Recommended Posts

As this mod seems to have died and appears to be unavailable, I've decided to re-release it. I've converted the mod so it can be used in the Mod manager.

This does not incorporate any of Ogaburan's changes so this version is as it was for V.22 (pre-1.0).  I haven't added any flags for XCE. I probably won't do any more work on this mod, I'm just making it available again.

Download link is at the bottom of the post. Enjoy :)

The purpose of this mod is to expand on the backgrounds of Xenonaut grunts, add more names, and to add some more nations.

I've also expanded most nation's available regiments and/or made them more "elite". This represents the nations giving the Xenonauts their best of the best.

The combat experiences are all historical wars from the 60's and 70's that a soldier's nation was involved in but you will get the occasional non-historical result due to there being no relationship between a soldier's age and previous combat experience when they are generated. e.g you might get a 21 year old veteran of Vietnam.

The ethnic demographics are not right.  There are a disproportionately large number of African-Canadians and African-Americans, yet neither Asian-Canadians or Asian-Americans. There are also no ethnically African South Africans, despite including 32.Battalion being included.
