OpenOffice.org is an excellent program. I'd go for the 2.0 beta, as it is a great upgrade compared to 1.1.3.
Regarding the savegame editor, I have several at home. I'll take a look tonight and upload one or two. The reason I didn't add them after we moved is the fact that I don't know if they work with the latest version of Aftermath (that's also the reason I didn't upload all that many mods), and since there was little feedback on them in the forum I wasn't sure how many people used them.
If you need any help with the Combo-mod, I'd suggest talking to BlackAlmaz. He's made large parts of it, and since Aralez left he is the owner of it. And do tell us when you finish! We can add it to the files section
The actual modifications are rather easy. Sadly the "manuals" section here at the forum is largely incomplete so I have had to take guesses and go through by trial and error using what information is already available. The biggest thing I have found about modding this game even slightly is time...it is really REALLY time consuming as you have to go through and make sure you don't make any mistakes with each and every addition or modded item. The only way I have found to do this is go through and actually play the game from start to finish (again major time consumption).
My computer is rather old and painfully slow, compared to the people I have seen post here (P3@1.1 Ghz with A Geforce 2 video card) so you can imagine my pain.......especially when playing the game in late stages
.....fps is EXTREMELY choppy and speed is almost intolerable both in geoscape and tactical . The tools I have found and downloaded here do a good job of packing and unpacking things but I am probably going to need an editor or two for testing purposes so yes I am interested in anything available to make the job easier.
On a different note: I have discovered some rather realistic (IMHO) firearm sound effects in wave format (no lasers/energy or psi effects). If someone here wants them then let me know (I don't know where I can upload them to; roughly 10+ mb worth if I counted correctly)
