I like some of the mods you can use through OpenXCom, and was wondering if anyone else used them? I mentioned this in the OpenXCom thread, but thought I should split it off from there so as to not derail it:
-I use the explosion height mod (So explosions are round instead of flat. I’ve foozled myself with it a few times). This is built into the advanced settings menu.
-Celebrate Diversity, https://openxcom.mod.io/celebrate-diversity This mod adds new soldier nationalities: Argentinian, Brasilian, Canadian, Iranian, Israeli, Mongolian and Ukrainian. It also contains some new names for vanilla nations and some spelling corrections. (Not sure how Canadian names are different from US names, but nice to be noticed!)
Thanks for the list, I feel like installing most of those into my current game!
That idea about civilians running away from things sounds like it would not only make sense, but possibly make the terror missions a bit more dynamic. Like the aliens moving around a bit more also. The civilians tend to die quite fast.
Also nice to see you Canageek! I remember you from CRPG Addict blog comments (I haven’t been super active there but I’m ‘evktalo’ there.)
