I guess I should have shot down the Huge temple ship, instead of waiting for it to land
As far as I know, they never land. So you have to shoot it down.

Been continuing my playhrough. Will post general observations another time, now some map issues.

1. Floating little trees. Should probably be 1 level lower?
2. No floor behind the door. Seems to be unintended.
3. Stone floor in Archmage tower is flammable?! Was initially ignited by HE autoguns, then fire spread. Can't extinguish with either extinguishers or wands (worked on stairs, but not on floor).

Good to know.   
I spent a full month or so only battling aliens, letting everybody else go through. I managed to get both an Archmage and a Huge temple ship handled - so now getting back onto track.   My difficulty now is to get a Shrine, I need to capture a Priestess of Light.  But since we are allied, I don't fight them anymore.
I even stunned one in a Magic Battle, but she did not end up in my inventory.
So I can't build a shrine )-;

Hi Nord,

X-Chronicles uses alien race attribute `retaliationMission`, which will be removed next week in the new oxce release.

Please update to replacement attribute `retaliationMissionWeights`

More endgame questions
« Reply #217 on: January 12, 2024, 06:55:02 am »
I'm getting much closer to the endgame, but still stuck waiting for events.
By now, have gotten two heroes, and one dwarf visit.
Sadly I didn't get all the types of dwarves stunned and captured, so I'm stuck waiting for one more visit.
No more research available until i get the dwarf hunter.  How many months do I spend blowing up swarms before I get another visit?

I am leaving one Nest at the oldest stage, just in case I need it for the final endgame.  Any suggestions on how to move the plot along better?

Fire Temple retaliation caused crash
« Reply #218 on: January 12, 2024, 07:28:46 am »
My game just had a fire temple retaliation that went straight to my base, then crashed xcom.    I have a save file that will reproduce it.
Crash dialog says "Map generator encountered an error: map block XBASE_M_19 is not defined in XBASE.

Corrupted save when loading prior game in v.0.99.17
« Reply #220 on: January 18, 2024, 07:45:27 am »
I just downloaded 0.99.17, and saw a message around corrupted save

Since I was on openxcom 7.9.8, I updated to the newest: 7.11.0
I saw the same issue at startup there.

Using v0.99.16 with 7.11.0 allows the save to load, just like with 7.9.8

Attaching save to help diagnose.  Thanks

Re: X-Chronicles Release, v.0.99.17.1

Hi Nord - I finished the game in 0.99.16 - never got any of the 0.99.17.1 versions to run, always had the same error reported above.

If you would like, I can give a summary of my impressions and suggestions.

Regardless, thanks for the impressive and imaginative mod.   It's the first I have finished in the OpenXCom install, first X-Com of the old series I have finished since 1995!
