I made small feature that could have interesting consequence.
You can change item level of aliens during mission, this will not affect existing aliens but any new one will obey new level.
This would allow making better stealth mission, if in first state you do not kill lot of enemies next stage will have less armed aliens.

Trying to attack your zombified (by a tentaculat) aquanaut with a knife results in an error that there is no one there. This occurred with TWoTS, but I suppose this is not a mod issue but might be a more general thing with OXC(E)?

Half of the tile where the soldier stands is blocked and the soldier cannot see through it.

Attached a look at that tile (green) from one tile away.
Zombie is purple.

Thank you for analyzing this.

Yet - if I recall correctly - the soldier "sees" the zombie (the number is blinking). And you could shoot it (though I recall it made not a scratch - I did not verify it actually hit it or the invisible wall). Shouldn't the same principles also apply to melee?

I guess this is a bug in the map, at the very least least, but I still wonder a bit about "seeing" someone on the tile next to you yet not being able to attack it.

Why recall when you have a save?

The soldier does not see the zombie.

This is not a bug, but map feature.

Supported rulesets can be check by `!info` tag on main node like (`ufos: !info`)
How? Should I run the game to see it in the log file?

Nice! Can I define it with mod rules? Like more-less particles, shorter-longer animation, color and so on?

Yes, and yes.

I now only started working on it, but my plan is unhardcode every thing that will not affect how particles are handed by engine.
This mean color will always be only one for one particle, here I do not plan to change this, but as game keep each particle opticity levels as separate tables why would stop us from setting different base color for each level during precalculation of this tables?
Same with weapons, why item need to spawn only one set of particles?

Initial version of Wall climbing is ready, if wall is set GravLift it will allow to unit move up and down in same tile where wall is.
There is some possible "glitch" like when unit get interrupted when climbing it will fall down one tile, you can see it near end of video.
This is because unit can climb over edge, but can't stop in the middle of it.

Server not accesible several days ago.
Where can i find newest bleeding edge oxce release?


Second question.
Im using TWOTS with OXCE 7.8.0.
I want to use newest version of OXCE 7.8.14
is it correct way to extract newest OXCE 7.8.14 files into existing folder (where is TWOTS with OXCE 7.8.0) and overwrite existing old files?
