[FIXED] Unit visibility issues since version 7.9.17
« on: November 05, 2023, 04:14:59 am »
When using OpenXcom 7.9.17 w/ X-Com Files (latest github version), Black Lotus Warriors cease to be seen in smoke even if you're standing adjacent to them (and looking at them).
Might be caused by this commit: https://github.com/MeridianOXC/OpenXcom/commit/e35c669db14f170adc5b37e609861fb923574b19
Savefile attached, but here's a couple of screenshots for good measure:
screen000.png - Extended-7.9.16-40a3d1239, sneaky ninja visible
screen001.png - Extended-7.9.17-bfa873c55, standing adjacent to sneaky ninja and staring at it, still not visible

This is not bug but feature :D Now smoke stack with camouflage. But as it looks, smoke is too potent in this case and need some nerfing.

No, overall game should work similar to previous version, there will be cases where unit is not visible even if prevolsy was, but if you sit next to this unit it should be visible.

btw can you post save and list of mod you use? I would like to test fix if result is in expected range

I've already posted the savefile, it's in the attachment in the first post.
The X-Com Files version I use is from github (https://github.com/SolariusScorch/XComFiles/archive/refs/heads/master.zip), other mods should be irrelevant; just checked if the savegame loads fine without any of them and it does.

Well, that's better than not being able to see them at all. :P Thanks for resolving this.
