Can't research M.C. technology after M.C. Lab in TFTD
« on: March 29, 2022, 09:32:21 am »
Hello!

I have a strange issue in my current game.

I have gotten the M.C. Lab researched (and built) but I can't keep researching the M.C. Technology. I have researched both alive and dead Tasoths which seem to be needed for the disruptor.

I'm running OXCE on Arch linux (the git one from AUR so it should be the latest one) with no additional mods.

I have checked the mods button and the "no psionics" is turned off. i.e. there are psionics. At the start I turned off psionics but later turned them on again. Could this be the issue? Since I turned it on my soldiers have been mind controlled by the aliens so, it _is_ on.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

You need Tasoth Soldier or Squad Leader (other ranks don't count) and the M.C. Reader.

Oh, that makes sense then.

Was this changed in OXC(E)? The research guide I looked into said only Tasoth and M.C. Reader. https://www.ufopaedia.org/images/thumb/5/52/Tree2.png/800px-Tree2.png

Thanks for the quick answer.  :)

It's the same in OXC and OXCE.

I don't know how it was in the original, sorry.

There are only Tasoth Soldiers and Squad Leaders. There's no other rank.
