Yeah the odd half building thing comes from certain map structures taking up more then one map chunk, and then not being defined to spawn with there proper matching pieces adjacent and aligned properly.

...maybe? It's just that right now it looks like my Skymarshall simply dropped down onto a building and obliterated whatever part of the building and walkways was in the way. If that's actually intended, adding a few crushed tanks could drive that point home - X-COM simply has no time find a better suited landing place and doesn't give a f- about collateral damage. I think it's common knowledge that this would be totally fitting. I'm pretty sure i'm not the only one who handles urban Chryssalid infestation by applying copious ammounts of high explosives.

I did some experiments wit that, but it is really tricky.
For now I'm focusing on more important stuff, though I acknowledge the present system is not 100% perfect. Only 99% or so. :P

But...but that's not what wikipedia or the cambridge dictionary says! :P

At a glance, they definitely aren't contradictory to the idea of biological automata. After all it's just a matter of engineering, not purpose.

A couple of bugs in the latest version, some of them are critical:

STR_HYPERWAVES_UFOPEDIA is completely broken and shows only the name of the string.

The STR_UFO_PROPULSION article has a wrong title and its opening causes a CTD.

STR_ZOMBIE_BOOMER is displayed as STR_ZOMBIE_BOOMER_ARMOR in the UFOpedia and when opened causes a crash.

The troop ship and striker share the same UFOpedia article.

All the STR_TROOP_SHIP_TERROR_MISSION strings are missing.

The Floater Legionnaire Autopsy does not have any pre-reqs, and is available for research from the start.

Shit I double checked and I was being a dumbass, sorry. But the pickaxe still has a question mark before miner.

I'm not sure how the research tree works exactly ???, but STR_FLOATER_LEGIONNAIRE_AUTOPSY is still immediately available on a new game.

I had to repackage and reupload the whole thing... Please download again.
If you don't want to reinstall again, you can simply overwrite Ruleset and Language folders only.
