So, unless someone knows a fix to OL, then what could you recommend me to install instead?

I can think of two reasons why it wouldn't work: either you have the wrong version for your version of ShoC, or the files weren't extracted properly. To explain:

1. The last official version of OL is 2.2, but there are a couple of sub-versions out there; one is for 1.0005/6 but there is another for 1.0004. Additionally, there are many modded versions of OL, so it can get confusing. The filename of the last official release that works on 1.0005/6 is called OL22_for_10005.7z and the filesize is 177,742,471 bytes.

2. If you didn't use the official 7zip extraction utility, there is a chance that some files didn't get extracted or didn't make it into the correct folder. For example, I use Izarc as my main extraction utility, and it doesn't handle some .7z files correctly. As a result, some files didn't get copied over to the /gamedata folder and the mod was broken.

As far as everyone eager to jump in and recommend a different mod to play, I'd like to point out that most of them have probably played through OL many times and are bored with it. But for someone who's never played anything beyond vanilla or sc2009, it's a really fun mod. Its weather system isn't as cool looking as sc2009 (in fact I'm working on a merger of OL and sc2009), but it has a lot of cool weapons, vehicles, artifacts, monsters, ability to join factions, companions, etc. and I love it to pieces, personally.

Well, the OP kind of... asked for recommendations for other mods. Of course some of us are going to give some recommended alternatives.

Sorry if the tone of my post sounded snarky. I was just struck at the time by the number of replies for different mods and the lack of replies for helping him get OL working.
