    Any way to cheat in this game? Like having 10 in all stats at the beginning?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question (I haven't modded tactics a lot and haven't even finished the game) but is this mod at all compatible with equilibrium and redux?

    It is not. It basically does what they did and much more. This is more like a total overhaul.

    So which would be best for a playthrough in your opinion, this or those?

    If you want what is basically the original campaign with tweaked, balanced equipment, play equilibrium/redux. If you haven't finished the basic game yet, that's probably what I'd recommend.

    Then afterwards, try this campaign. It has a much larger campaign world with lots of new quests and gameplay.

    Yep, Redux is pretty high quality mod, and offer a fantastic challenge in CTB mode.

    Oh nvm..., I suppose this needs to be done after most quests are finished as some npcs are dead, any extra quests are added?

    Guys I'm noting my observations concerning this mod's bugs and possible fixes (great mod btw), but I'm stuck with a really annoying issue, I gave a deathclaw a tesla armor (other armors change its appearance except this), when worn it gives him 90% damage resistance, it became invulnerable to fire arms, when I remove the armor it dies easily, is it intended to be like that or maybe it is not supposed to wear armor in first place?

    As I recall, a Deathclaw shouldn't be able to wear armor at all. So that sounds like a bug. However, I noticed that a Tesla armor I found in this mod (maybe Quartz?) when equipped looked like the character sprite wasn't wearing any armor, so there's something fishy about that armor in the first place.

    I also noticed that the long-standing Felicia bomb bug in Quartz is still there (bomb explodes pretty much instantly for no reason, but you still get the quest to save her completed) and for some reason when I spoke to the Mayor about saving his wife, General Barnaky appeared in the Mayor's office. That's never happened to me before, so I suspect someone's been mucking in the code on these self-install versions Pyran's been posting.

    If you read the information before installation, you know that there is a small patch from Alex Rove. Previously, no one had complained about this.
    1. Send a save with this scene. In some cases, you need to move the game files into the folder with the mod. But I have not personally encountered such a situation.
    2. I will update the installer, and give a choice with\without a patch.

    Here's a save from just after completing the mission in Quartz. Ugly is dead, the Mayor has given me the reward (even though his wife blew up in the first turn of the fight) and General Barnaky is in the Mayor's office. Also, the first character is wearing Tesla armor.
