Goal: Have you ever wondered from where the authors of TFTD took all those fancy supersonic submarines and underwater tanks? Yes, this is the future (the year 2040, in case you forgot), but it’s not the far future. I mean, we have only 21 years left, and we still don't have any such technology, just like we didn’t have it 27 years ago. Do we? Well, I tried to explain this a bit; and yes, the game became slightly harder.

New content: You’ll find over 90 new weapons and items, new crafts and new craft armaments, a lot of new missions (LORE friendly), and 36+ new units (yours and enemies), as well as many USOpedia topics, and even new maps.

Included mods from other authors: "Extended facilities" by Blank. "Moray" by tyran_nick. "Carharodons" by Xops. Swapped small and very small USO maps, so you don’t need to use an external mod.
Included new_civilian's TFTD patch.

Available languages: US English and Russian.

Thanks: to OpenXcom authors for a brilliant game; to Yankes and Meridian for powerful OXCE, to Solarius Scorch for priceless help, to long6oarder for spell checks, to ohartenstein23 for script help, to artbycarlos for great Triton fan art, to new_civilian and the other modders from whom I borrowed something.

Installation:

Windows: the package contains all that you need except original TFTD files. Extract archive anywhere you want and copy the original TFTD files to "TFTD" folder. Then start "openxcomex.exe".

1) Install OXCE (with original TFTD).

Greetings! I think it would be good to add an alternative geoscape, green and more detalized. Luke's Hybrid Globe or something like that.

N
Nord @nord

Luke's Hybrid Globe works for XCOM-1, not for TFTD. But if someone adapt it, i'll add this.

Is this not compatible with No Psionics?

I get this error-

This mod is not comatible with almost anything.

Hmm

It's no real biggie. Had no problems with my other normal selections.

Any plans for a wiki?

Not really. But if you want to help with...

Please add Linux installation steps. I managed to install it by:
Linux:
1) Install OXCE (with original TFTD).
2) Extract "User/Mods/TWoTS" folder to your "~/.local/share/openxcom/mods".
3) Launch the game and activate the mod in menu.

(I did not try to install it /usr/share/openxcom. Also, for Arch Linux Aur.archlinux.org seems to exist, but did not try it as it was out-of-date and did not bother updating the PKGBUILD file locally).

Hey there, I seem to be having a difficult time installing the mod. I Extracted the mods to my desktop and copied the original TFTD Files to the mods TFTD folder. However, whenever I attempt to open OpenXcomExtended, it crashes before the opening scene. What am I doing wrong?

N
Nord @nord

When it crashes, what it says? (look on openxcom.log in "user" folder, you need to find strings with [Error])

Looks like not a mod is crashing, but OXCE itself. Try to download and install clean OXCE, then run it. If it works, then put "user" folder into it.

Nvm, it was just files I had that were uneeded. It works perfectly now, and great mod!

Help needed for installing Mod. The following error shows up after pasting in all of the TFTD subfiles:
Error: FileRecord:: at (GEODATA/PALETTES.DAT): requested file not found.

I have copy and pasted the TFTD files from my Steam copy of the game, which works. Any advice would be much appreciated, I would love to try this game and experience all the amazing Mods at work!

N
Nord @nord

->I have copy and pasted the TFTD files...
Not all of them, i suppose. Requested file must be in original game files. Check the path to this file (folder with exe/TFTD/GEODATA/palettes.dat)

RT
RamboTasoth @rambotasoth

I have no idea what I did, deleting and re-pasting TFTD files all over the place...but it works!!!! Very excited! Thank you again for this fantastic Mod. TFTD always had a special place in my heart and it's amazing that we can re-experience it in a new way.

I am getting the error "Error for 'XARQUID_WEAPON': offset '203' exceeds mod size limit 57 in set 'Projectiles'" after adding the line to metadata.yaml

N
Nord @nord

Do not really understood. You have added something to metadata.yaml? Because i checked xarquids - they are fine.

Nassos @nassos

Perfect job!
I'm currently at 25% of tech and so far Ι've encountered the following problems(?)
1. New melee weapons (e.g laser cutter) dont seem to work on all types of enemies. Even vibro and thermic lance seem to not do the job against all enemies. I think it has to do with "fleshy" and not armoured new foes
2. At this point, with the baracuda there is a certain small uso that destroys xcom's crafts in a second. Is this something that needs rebalancing?
3. Terrors in islands is unbeatable (genious dif). In just a turn, all agents are dead (or asleep) by mc attacks. All. Maybe it needs rebalancing.

N
Nord @nord

1. Maybe you miss? Or it is about locust. Locust swarm can not be hit by melee
2. No.
3. I'll think about it.

Nassos @nassos

Currently at 32% tech. Maybe I shouldnt have started genious difficulty. Save scum helped a lot. I'm starting to not need it so much... thanks for the reply (and the wonderful humongous expansion) :)
