Currently I have started a game of TFTD with v1.3e of your rework mod and I'm finding it has made TFTD a good bit harder, not that TFTD was ever easy, but I've noticed something of a minor glitch(graphic wise). I thought all alien colonies had to be located in water but per attached no:2 appears to be located on land? You can still assault it normally but I thought I would bring it to your attention. A really good update for TFTD IMHO.

Just checked and it is present on the unmodded TFTD ruleset, so it was present on the original game (unless the OXC devs made a mistake)

@Orz

Someone reported on another thread that your new TFTD aliens can be researched over and over once they're captured. The reason for ths is that you need to add destroyItem: true to the research entries of those aliens, this is something that was recently added on the nightlies, you can just check the TFTD's research.rul to see what I mean.

Thanks again, Hobbes :)

Hotfixes attached for new aliens/ranks in UFO & TFTD Rework; first research.rul is for UFO, second one is for TFTD + Calcinite's Protoform:

My current game seems to be crashing again, perhaps in relation to earlier issue I reported. I can work around it at the minute by not completing the research on the Aquatoid Medic but I thought I would report it. My game continues on as normal beyond midnight if I pause/stop the research but crashes otherwise.

I'm looking into it. So far I haven't been able to find out what's causing it. Starting a new game with Aquatoid Medic in stores for research works as intended, like any other Medic rank. Have you made any changes to the file yourself? Might also need to look into the other mods for compatibility issues or something out of place or missing in there.

No I didn't make any changes to the research.rul file and here are the mods that I'm using. I don't think any of them would be incompatible:

mods:
  - xcom2
  - OpenXCom_Unlimited_Waypoints
  - XcomUtil_Pistol_Auto_Shot_TFTD
  - ILLAMASQUA'S TFTD REWORK 1.3e
  - Disruptor Cannon
  - EXPGAUSS
  - EXTRA POCKETS
  - HELLRAZOR'S STATSTRINGS
  - IONWEAPONS
  - Lockheed
  - MY PULSER SEEKER
  - Moray

Spoiler:
I noticed on the ufopedia the entries for the Cephalid and its autopsy don't have images of the alien in question, is this still to be updated?

I started a new game yesterday (without the listed mods) and played till I was able to research an Aquatoid Medic, and I was unable to duplicate the crash. I obviously want this mod to be 100% bug-free, but I unfortunately cannot pinpoint the source of the problem here :-\

Yes, as stated earlier in the updates, these and Diving Suit's pedia images are currently missing.

Hi, I've been playing this mod in the past few days. I really like it.

However I have a problem. The game crashes on 21st September around 23:00 right after I finished a Colony Assault and started MC training four aquanauts, and says "OpenXcom has crashed: Segmentation fault. This usually indicates something missing in a mod. [...]"

I saved just before it and exiting and launching the game again does not work. (I tried multiple times.)

    Hey, sorry for super late reply. I'm extremely busy with life right now, but I'm glad you like it :)

    If I had to guess, I'd say some research is causing the crash at 23:00. Do you happen to have the savefile, if it's not too late? Perhaps we can find the bug or get a quick-fix, at least.

    I should add that I also experienced a crash a couple weeks ago when losing the game. This occurs when the ending "cutscene" sequence is triggered. Does not happen in my UFO mod and I'm 100% certain it wasn't happening before in TFTD either (as I deliberately drove myself to losing games previously and experienced no crashes). So there's currently 3 reported crashes that need to be addresseed right now:

    • SIMON's Aquatoid Medic research crash (which I couldn't duplicate)
    • Jokerke12's crash after Colony Assault @ 23:00 hrs (possibly research related too)
    • Orz' ending "cutscene" crash (losing the game crashes game)

    All of these crashes are likely due to recent changes in nightlies. Last stable version of UFO/TFTD Rework was done and tested with nightlies from mid July, if I remember correctly. And, furthermore, I successfully played 3 or 4 TFTD campaigns without any crashes whatsoever.

    However, like I said, I'm extremely busy right now and it's unlikely I'll be able to invest any serious time on bug-fixing for a while.

    Sorry, I accidentaly overwrote the save file. I reflexively clicked on it after starting a new campaign.

    I think Mediafire is messing up, after a long while I decided to get into openxcom again because Id like to try TFTD with it (last time I played TFTD wasnt supported yet).

    Got the TFTD 1.3 mod listed on the first post . . .

    However when I decided to get the UFO 1.4 mod for shats and grins Mediafire went into a broken-download loop . . . click on file and it says preparing download, then just basically reloads the page over again without giving me a wait counter or anything. Cannot get the file.

    Tried it without my adblocker on too, same story.
