    Propose very simple mod that allow add any amount articles in ufopaedia in game and own image for article and make active in ufopadia scrolling to add big texts. also in ufopedia mainpage need aditional button...

    or also scrolling so there can be more sections for start there can be added this two texts
    http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Background_(Apocalypse)
    and this
    http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/X-COM_Timeline
    -reports about secret projects before first alien war
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret researches in different spheres
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret goverment and intelegence operations
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret ufo recovers of other possible non hostile alien
    races and fossiles (taken from real life also)
    -reports about possible theory technologies (some of that can be maybe implementable after some hidden move)
    -reports about ancient technologies that comes from vatican library as main place where all gathered thousands years (what was before flood? etc)
    -cultural references like in Fall this can be separate big mod)
    and of course many more...


    -also we can open webpage where article and image can be added by any player and moderated
    -after this article compile in one big file that can be downloaded by mod
    and open in game so each time player will find somthing new...
    and only in game)

    +1 for this idea. Adding the X-COM history to the UFOPedia would be a great thing for Apocalypse, though a monumental task to C&P, Proof and Moderate.
    The main thing is to get the mechanism for this to be done added to the game and I imagine that is where most of the work is going to be prior to any moderation system for the content you propose.
    How to combat bots uploading stuff once moderators start to flow away from the game also needs to be considered... Bots always find a way...

    Ahh, okay. Well, maybe it would be best to start by editing some of the existing entries then. I will go look through and see which ones don't look right to me. Of course that's just my opinion, so. I'll take a picture of each one I guess (don't really know how else to screenshot DOSBOX). Then people can see if they agree with me that they should be changed.

    Okay, there's no good way to post all my shots so the articles I thought could do with expanding, or have grammatical errors, or are just one sentence, or don't fit with what is in the game (the only real example of this is the Lifetree/School entries, which say that students are taught with psionics, however the actual school map appears to be a regular pretty low tech school).

    Here goes then!

    Slums
    Shopping Mall

    School
    Alien Farm
    Food Chamber
    Spawning Chamber
    Alien Genetic Structure
    Skeletoid
    Megaspawn Autopsy
    Megaspawn
    Anthropod

    Alien Destroyer
    XCOM Disruptor Armour
    Minilauncher IN+HE Missile
    Heavy Launcher HE+IN Missile
    Megapol Plasma Pod
    Roto Cannon IN+HE+AP Clip
    Megapol Laser Pod
    Marsec M4000 Gun Clip
    Megapol Lawpistol Clip
    Metro Roadgrav
    Heavy Weapons Control
    Metro Turbograv
    Janitor Missile Array
    10MM Auto Cannon
    Blazer Turbo Bike
    Stormdog
    Retaliator
    Explorer
    Biotrans
    Osiron
    Diablo
    Psyche
    Lifetree
