UFO Plus! Readme
Date: Dec 15th 2020
Version: 1.0

>>>>THIS MOD REQUIRES OPENXCOM EXTENDED 6.8.3 AT THE MINIMUM! IT WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT IT!<<<<

What is this mod?

UFO Plus is a mod that makes the following changes to just add a bit of...fun to UFO
This mod can imbalance the game depending on the choices you make usingit.

I do NOT recommend this mod for a first time playthrough of UFO.

Note: This mod does NOT add any new crafts, weapons, craft weapons, soldier types, armor types or aliens or maps
nor does it mess with alien mission deployments or anything of the sort

the only changes to the mod are below:

Changes:

All craft repair at a slightly faster rate then vanilla (+5 per hour)
You can conduct basic training to your men for 5000 credits that add +5 to all skills
(note due to how transformations work in oxce this can be just repeated as much as you want. I don't care have fun with it)
You can also resurrect lost soldiers for 500,000 thousand credits but this takes 24 hours and they need a 24 hour recovery time.
Engineer salary slightly reduced.
You now get a bonus depending on your performance during the month.
Countries that sign a pact with the invading Aliens can be brought back into the fold if you destroy the alien base or bases built in thatcountry.
Less aliens will show up during a base defense mission if your defenses manage to do some damage.
Initial Starting funds is now about 7 million credits use it well.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN PERFORMING A SOLDIER RESURRECTION ENSURE THAT A) YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY (500,000 per) FOR EACH SOLDIER YOU WANNA BRING BACK AND THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE IN YOUR LIVING QUARTERS AS WELL!

Installation simply unzip the folder "UFOPLUS" to your user/mods directory, if you do not know where that is, either consult the openxcom forums or discord.

Recommended Mods to run with UFO Plus!:

Static Cydonia Map
Gun Melee
Improved Ground Tanks
Improved Heavy Laser
Pistol Auto Shot
Starting Defensive Base
or
Custom Initial Base set to YES in options.

In Options I suggest you set the explosion height to 3 as well

There will be a TFTD Plus! in the future as well!

Looks interesting, one observation - i can't sort in the resurrection screen. it gives me option to but nothing happens. Also - not able to resurrect anyone, there's no option to?

It only works on dead soldiers. You do all the transformations (including resurrection) on the soldiers tab. So if that is not your problem please provide a screenshot because you have me a little baffled as it all works on my end.

it also could be you are NOT running OpenXCom Extended 6.8.3 which is required for the mod, or you have the mod installed improperly, but yeah a screenshot would help.

Okay, are you running any other mods that change or adjust soldiers in any way? can you use the other transformations? can I see your mods folder and what mods are active? Its also because you might be out of money.....it costs a little over 500 thousand dollars for a resurrection.

Monduras @mond1608588080

thanks for looking into it. i am not really using other soldier mods just some stat adjustments. here is the image for the mods i am using. also, i tried doing this when I had 20 mill on hand, I believe - will confirm

From your imgur link things look ok, but I only tested UFO Plus! with a few mods so I cannot guarantee any compatibility with ones not listed in the readme..(if that is indeed the issue, though testing reveals that Reaver's Rebalance isn't the issue as resurrection still works for me here with that mod enabled.) so other then disabling every other mod in your mod list and testing individually mod by mod and you aren't low on money... I am stumped you have me well and truly stumped here. Everyone of my testers has confirmed it works, I can confirm it works through at least 4 hours of testing various configurations and possible situations...I don't know what else to suggest.

thanks for the suggestions! i don't know either, i want to try this mod out... maybe something is missing in the settings somewhere for me? I did what you said and it's still not working. i turned off all user mods - only default ones enabled. i also tried it with only your mod enabled and all default off. i don't get an option to resurrect a soldier. i have 1.1mil avail in money so it should allow me to do it. what's weird is on the transformations screen i see 2 available resources - so assume that's the 500k x2 logic, but there's just no button for me to do it. it doesn't seem to recognize that i have the resources on the individual soldier's resurrection screen.

1. Can I see your mod folder? like the actual directory?

2. there should be no resources other then a listed casualty and money. (no need to bring a corpse back either, like how I think some mods do it)

3. no options I know of exist in OXCE that would prevent this from working which leaves the following possibilities:

a. Incorrect Install of Mod
b. Incorrect Install of OXCE
c. Somehow the transformation.rul file is corrupted.
d. Transformation.rul file is edited.

These are the only things that remain in my head about what could be causing this.

You are sadly the only one who has this problem.

here's imgs of my directory. all the other mods work just fine so don't think oxce is installed incorrectly. are you on the xcom discord? maybe i can send you the files i have, but i didn't make any edits - only the download from this page.
