"You volunteered for the Resistance the day you were born" - John Connor
This mod is set in the Terminator universe, and it takes place in 2027. It has been 20 years since Judgment Day, when Skynet became self-aware and started a global nuclear exchange to terminate humanity. The Resistance has been fighting Skynet during all those years but despite its successes, Skynet keeps increasing its robotic armies and is on the verge of tipping the scales against humanity. Alarmed at the long term prospectives, the sector leaders decide to combine together their 'tech-comm' squads into an unified elite force to destroy Skynet and win the war against the machines.

WARNINGS and DISCLAIMERS
* This mod is WIP - expect bugs, crashes and missing features
* This is pure sandbox mode - there's hardly research yet and you can't win the game, but you can buy anything and please test it as much as you like. You can't also lose the game through negative score (to be implemented in the future)
* I'm not responsible if this mod takes over your computer and decides to start Judgment Day - use at your own risk ;)
To play Tech-Com you'll need to download and install Meridian's latest OXCE+ build
Lxnt.wtf (updated link October 16th)
It is highly advisable that you install OXCE+ on a different folder than your current OpenXCom nightly
After, just download the mod and unzip it to your OpenXCom mods folder.
The Terminator music has been updated with music from the movies' soundtracks and moved a separate download - you can get it here. Just extract the zipped file to \Documents\OpenXCom\Mods\
