Xenonauts is a PC strategy game due for release in 2013. It is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games, putting the player in control of an organisation defending the world from an alien invasion. It is a grand strategy game that involves building and managing bases across the entire planet, controlling jet fighters and ground troops in battle against the alien forces, then researching captured extraterrestrial technology to unlock their secrets! Linux version uses WINE.
This mod adds small icons of soldier roles to the soldier minibars above the panel in ground combat.
How to install:
- Unzip the archive in the main game directory (it will extract new files to assets/patches).
- (On Unix-like systems, or if you know how to do it) Apply the patch assets/patches/minibar-soldierrole.patch .
- (On Windows) Run assets/patches/minibar-soldierrole.bat . It will patch necessary game files and create backups of them with the .minibar-soldierrolebackup extension.
Update to work with X:CE installed using launcher's Modding Tools.
The TU bars are sometimes mis-aligned.
This is a bug in the progressbar drawing, not in the mod. It will be fixed in X:CE 0.25 . You can try to edit assets/scripts/combatguiexport(_large).lua and decrease widths of xxx_hpbar items by one as a workaround (and it will only mitigate the mis-alignment, not fix it completely).
Is this mod compatible with mod XYZ?
The mod uses a text patch utility that is quite intelligent about merging changes even to files that have been modified. Unless something changes exactly the same items as this mod does (which is unlikely) , there should be no problem. Since other mods seem to work by replacing files as a whole rather than patching them, it is recommended to install this mod as the last one.
How do I update this mod if the game updates? Is this mod compatible with game version x.y?
As said above, the mod is good at patching files even if they have changed slightly, so if the game updates files relevant for this mod and overwrites the changes, it should be enough to apply the patch again (and possibly revert it first). If there will be any problems, the patch utility will report problems while applying the changes (you may need to run the patching from a command shell to see the error messages). Generally, if anything else fails, resetting your game to its original state (e.g. verifying game files in Steam) and applying the patch again should work.
