This is a great mod
1) because of 4 added UFOS
2) because of new alien weapons
3) because of having defined this 4th level of technology :)

In order to make your mod even more compliant/reusable/mergeable, I make you a new suggestion : for vanilla Ufos, as I can see you did not change related values, you can avoid specifying "lowQty:", "highQty:", "dQty:" and "percentageOutsideUfo:"

Example :

BEFORE
Spoiler:

alienDeployments:
  - type: STR_SMALL_SCOUT
    data:
      - alienRank: 5
        lowQty: 1
        highQty: 1
        dQty: 0
        percentageOutsideUfo: 50
        itemSets:
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE

AFTER
Spoiler:

alienDeployments:
  - type: STR_SMALL_SCOUT
    data:
      - alienRank: 5
        itemSets:
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_SNIPER_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
          -
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE

You forgot it and you did right, as finally I think it does not work. Was sure it worked well in my previous tests, but now I have finished this part of my mod, I am unable to make it work even in training mode  >:(

After have set these values back again in place, this solves the issue

So forget my proposition, sorry

you can only delete unchanged properties if they are in the first level
in this example

Code: [Select]
alienDeployments:
  - type: STR_SMALL_SCOUT
    data:
      - alienRank: 5
        lowQty: 1
        highQty: 1
        dQty: 0
        percentageOutsideUfo: 50
        itemSets:
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_PISTOL_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
            - STR_NEWSTUFF
          -
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
            - STR_NEWSTUFF
          -
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA
            - STR_HEAVY_PLASMA_CLIP
            - STR_MIND_PROBE
            - STR_NEWSTUFF
    width: 40
    length: 40
    height: 4
you can but should not delete data (not a good idea because STR_NEWSTUFF is there)
this:
Code: [Select]
    width: 40
    length: 40
    height: 4
you can delete because they are in the correct "level" and unchanged to original

I had some weird effects when left this out, so I put it back in. Can't remember what it was though.

Yes, this does not work, sorry

PS : I understand why my previous tests where OK despite of this pending issue
This is due to mod loading sequence : even if mods are sorted alphabetically in options screen, this does not mean they will be loaded alphabetically
A quick check in Options.cfg and I saw it could depend if you activate/de-activate/re-activate some mods.
And also, a second mod loaded after (even if displayed before in options screen) was correcting this part.
When I decided to merge all mods in a unique big one, this issue suddenly appeared

Yes, exactly that.
Of course theoretically we can open the config and adjust stuff, but as a modder I can't expect the end user to do the same. :)

Hey, I downloaded this and I love it, but the lab ship's walls on the first and third levels can be walked through on one side. Can this be fixed?

I know about this bug and I thought I fixed it, but maybe there are still places where it's wrong. (The Lab Ship was my first map ever, and it shows. :/ )

If you could post a picture showing the glitchy tiles, it would be really helpful. But first, please confirm you have the latest version.

EDIT:

I slightly decreased Plasma Blaster's power, so now the Power Suit gives you some slim chance of survival. Download 1.3.6 for this. (Louis, you convinced me after so many months, lol.)
