Stopping a terror mission from happening.
« on: January 31, 2023, 05:05:03 am »
Hi, everybody.

I've been playing with the XCOM Terrain Pack, and my game crashed and this error message popped up:

OpenXcom has crashed: Alien Deployment
STR_TERROR_MISSION_OUTPOST not found

How do I edit my save file to stop that terror mission from happening?

Upload the save and we'll fix it for you.

OK, I have attached my save file. Thanks, Meridian, and to anyone else that helps.

I get a completely different error than you.
That's because you have already turned off the Terrain Pack in your save.
Please don't do that... turning off Terrain Pack in the middle of the game is going to create a LOT more problems!
Please turn it back on.

After you have turned it back on, you can use the attached fixed save.
It shouldn't crash anymore.

Awesome! Looks like it's working now, thanks a lot! May I ask what you did to fix it? I'd like to know incase I run in to this problem again, so I can fix it myself.

I have removed one of the three ongoing alien missions from your save.

Is it as simple as deleting the line, or is it some number value?

It's several lines.

You can also just compare the two saves to see what I deleted.

I see what you did. In fact, that same error popped up again, and I just deleted the terror mission and the error was fixed. There's a line called "region", you think I can change where the terror mission takes place instead of outright stopping the terror mission from happening?

Maybe, try.
