Is this the right place for bug reports? Just trying out the mod right now, and something I noticed during the initial base defense :

I stunned the (former) commander, and whenever I am giving my soldiers/agents a move order (when the path is displayed but before actually comitting the move order) I get a "enemy spotted" notification which points to the unconcious commander:

https://abload.de/img/screen0008qk21.png
https://abload.de/img/screen001rmjmt.png

Is this intended?

On that account, it would be nice if "saving" the former commander would give some form of reward, maybe an unlock of some of the early research topics. Also, research progress is now checked on an hourly basis? Very helpful. Is this a user setting and/or available in vanilla OXCE or was this specifically added to FTA?

I am also unable to access the techtree viewer despite it not being disabled in the vars.Nevermind, researchTreeDisabled: was the culprit. But why are there multiple options to disable the tech tree viewer to begin with?

After the next big update I'll make a separate tread for bug tracking, for now  ;)

This is not intended, it's a floating bug I'm catching, looks like this system has to be redone for some level. TODOlisted for the next engine release - https://github.com/723Studio/OpenXcom_FTA/issues/111 (btw, Github issue tracker is the best place to report it, and the most handy one for both me and reporters).

Capturing commander will be more important in the next release.

Hourly researches is a feature of FtA, and will be not added to OXCE for now; at least, I've got confirm about it from Meridian when he rejected for performance reason (Piratez have A LOT of researches to look through in this process, I will never get even a bit close to this number, so I don't care)

Techtree is disabled by design, as I don't like that feature as a game designer. Not sure, that I understand you - have you manage to turn it on? If so, it's a bug, pls, share the way how you did it.

Glad to hear you're still ironing outthe bugs. WIll you be adding some kind of progress tracker to let players know how much of the planned content / arcs are already implemented?

The same way you turned it off, probably. Not a bug, don't worry about it.

I've been having trouble with github lately so I hope you don't if I continue to poost bugs here.

I  recety id the R&D heist and "recovered" one of the military officers. Who promtply died, because apparently X-Com detention facilities are on par with Abu Ghraib. Is this intended? Are there multiple prison types for humans?

OFC I do! I work on the project daily.

hm, probably =) Although, for now, it's like 80% of total effort is engine coding, so content is not in my focus at the very moment. Also, content is not very much decomposed to say that, like "mib arc 38% done" as I need to define what is 100% first. I have issue tracker on github and board on trello, but it's also more about engine. I have a tree for campaign progression in miro, but as it describes campaign in details, I trat it as a major spoiler for players and it is devs-only tool. Furthermore, I share progress in Discord, for now base personnel roles feature and stealth improvements are on the table.

The same way you turned it off, probably. Not a bug, don't worry about it.
hm, probably I should disable it based on `ftaGame` property, to make it more closed =)

not a problem

If anything this is going to make it harder to follow up on bugs, not to mention that the tech tree is kind of vital to understand most mods that have any kind of complexity. There is already a config setting specifically to disable it for a mod. I don't think removing it would be a smart idea tbh.

EDIT:
How "accurate" are the time estimates for covert operations meant to be? Case in point, I have an ongoing monster hunt with 5 agents assigned that is said to finish in "several days", but which is still ongoing 2+ months later.
Code: [Select]
    covertOperations:
      - name: STR_MONSTER_HUNT_RUMORS_AMPHIBIAN
        spent: 520
        cost: 520
        successChance: 58
        assignedScientists: 1
        assignedEngineers: 0
        hasPsi: false
        inBattlescape: false
        hasBattlescapeResolve: false
        progressEventSpawned: false
        over: true
        items:
As far as I can tell this should be finished, only it never did. Meaning the agents&items are now locked behind this with no in-game option to recover them.

Also, like others have pointed out, the lack of income (apart from manufacturing+selling stuff to the resistance, and even that is lackluster) is a point of concern. I find myself unable to build any base facilities such as the workshop or the small radar because I simply don't have the funds and no ability to gain enough per month to get out of the negative. The only real influx I got was the one-time data vault mission, which came a month late becasue my team failed the handover the first time.

I also don't quite understand the whole point of monster hunt missions. I waste money in return for nothing because the corpses are worthless and I can't recover any live monsters (no option to research containment, let alone build one because lack of money).

You can still see it in debug =)

EDIT:

Looks like a bug. I don't quite remember if it was fixed already, but I will keep eye on it.

Also, like others have pointed out, the lack of income (apart from manufacturing+selling stuff to the resistance, and even that is lackluster) is a point of concern. I find myself unable to build any base facilities such as the workshop or the small radar because I simply don't have the funds and no ability to gain enough per month to get out of the negative.

Yeah, this is a problem for next release to solve - thing is that we tested with very greedy testers, who manage to loot everything possible on mission, so the income was not an issue on pre-release playtesting.

Isn't it already limited to debug and locked behind to seperate config entries, i.e. researchTreeDisabled and oxceDisableTechTreeViewer ?

probably, I made it quite time ago, and I need to look at my code to refresh memory =)

Stay tuned with engine development for the next major release! https://github.com/723Studio/OpenXcom_FTA/milestone/2
If anything, the percentage of completion is displayed incorrectly, because detailed tasks in the githab started to conduct only recently, in fact there is less than 5% of the total amount of work done.

game crash on start new game

Hi, you are using incompatible versions of the engine and mod - you downloaded the most recent and yet unstable version of the engine (it is in pre-alpha testing state, I'm quite sure it can have multiple bugs because it has so much of a new code) and release version of the content (mod) part. Try version 0.8.1 of the engine - https://lxnt.wtf/oxem/builds//FTA/FtA-0.8.1-f9c90f9bc-2022-11-18-win64.7z, it should work fine with released mod version.

I just downloaded the newest master and started a new game. Apparently the remnants of XCOM aren't all that fond of their old commander (or MIB prisoners), as they simply executed them at the end of the initial base defense, citing "not enough prison space". I guess the existing prison facilities is too good for the ex-commander?

Spoiler:
The prison facilities lacks aliens: and prisontype: and ftaPrisonSpace: is apparently not implemented or not respected by latest available version of FtA.

EDIT:

Also for some reason I start out without any scientist and engineers. Is this intended? Has this been changed and the player is supposed to pick them up later on? Starting base lists a couple of "randomized" soldiers with engineering/scientist "role" apparently, and in-game there are soldiers assigned the according "armor", but none of them can be used accordingly.

EDIT:
The newest nightly lets me assing scientist and engineers, but assinging&starting engineering projects crashes the game. I guess I'll wait for the next "official" release then XD
