Greetings! Can this mod be adopted for TFTD? I think it would be very nice to add this beautiful Globe to the TWOTS mod :)

Hello, I am technically inept and unsure how to use this mod. Is there an installation guide somewhere?

Luke83 @luke83

Download file and extract into mod folder, go to your copy of TFTD and copy into this mod folder the TFTD/Maps and TFTD/Routes into mod folder. Then start OXCE and turn mod on....i think that covers it.

Indeed, thank you.

got [ERROR] failed to load 'IDT - Hybrid_Globe'
Error with MissionWeights: Region: STR_ANTARCTICA: alien mission type: STR_ALIEN_RESEARCH not defined, do not incite the judgement of Amaunator. while loading

Luke83 @luke83

ok, i will double check that error shortly, on my OXCE 6.1 and have not received this error however i have had other comments stating the new version 6.3 has identified some new bugs.

Luke83 @luke83

STR_ALIEN_RESEARCH is a STD Mission type in Vanilla X-Com, as such you should not be getting this error unless what ever Mod your trying to Merge this globe into doesnt use STR_ALIEN_RESEARCH. As such to fix for your specific mod, just open the Regions_Hybrid.rul file, search for "STR_ALIEN_RESEARCH" and comment them out by adding a # in front of each one and your problem will go away.

Hollow_Fang @hollow-fang

So is there a plan to make the ufo defense and then have the second wave of tftd com in as reinforcements once you go to mars? And keep ufos and uso attacking at same time ?

Luke83 @luke83

This is just a resources for other modders to use for there own mods. I made this for the community since i had done so much work on my own Hybrid Mod i thought i was currently most experienced to make a Vanialla globe for other modders.

Currently there are 2 Hybrid games in production, there is OXC-Factions which is a complete new story :
and there is this one you can try ( believe this one is similar to what your after):
