Hi! I'm back to X-COM and my favorite mod. Anything big I've missed?

Maybe raids could be given low weights for the early months, to give players some time to setup better radar coverage? Or a message like for terrors if that's possible with the new mission stuff!

OK, I halved all instances of this mission - it should be fairly rare. Hopefully it won't become too rare - I've never seen them myself!

Welcome back, and thanks! Well, nothing tremendously major I believe, mostly updating the mod to follow the nightly But the next release 1.0 will be something of previously unseen magnitude. :)

Some of the sections of the factory raid map are buggy. There are certain stairs that cannot be climbed and I think I've got an alien stuck in a room on one of the upper floors that I just can't get to. I've tried high explosives and rockets to try to flush the alien out, but all it ends up doing is destroying the floor tiles surrounding his prison which means I can't throw any more high explosives up there as the walls are still intact. It's quite annoying. Are the walls indestructible or does it just require higher tier weapons?

Hi guys,
Trying to start a playthrough on a fresh install of OpenXcom nightly 2015_02_22_0621 with Final Mod Pack 0.9.9 . No other mods installed, clean datafiles etc. Complete fresh install.

Running fine until I hit 29th January, 10:00. The minute it hits this date and time the game just crashes to desktop. No error throws or anything, the window literally just closes. Running on Windows 7 64bit if it helps. Any suggestions with how I can debug this? Complete noob at such things, and would like to beable to push forward with this. I'm gonna try installing the latest nightly and see if that helps, but thought I'd post here and see if anyone else had seen this.

I had a crash too in March, it was a terror mission in Antarctica, which couldn't find any city there and just crashed.

Wondering if this may have been the same, I've got save scumming off. Would updating the OpenXCom files reset the seed perhaps?

Sadly, I don't know. I guess you should ask Hobbes, since it's his work. I'll try to investigate though.

There are two different solutions described in the FMP thread:
1/ find the mission in the save and change the region to something else (e.g. Europe)
2/ find the region in the FMP ruleset and enable the cities, which are commented out

That very much sounds like the time a UFO would go for a city to launch your end of month terror mission. You can look into your save (just check a few pages back in this thread for the instructions) to see if that's the case. Meridian's solutions are the right ones.

This sounds like the stairs bug, and I've never redesigned the factory to try to minimize this issue. I'd actually recommend that you remove the Alien Raids from the FMP since I've long removed that kinda of mission from the Terrain Pack.

Thanks, maybe I will, but it'll probably mean more broken saves. :P

It's gotta be said, this modpack is pretty fun!

I'm really enjoying the special missions and the variety of races to fight against.

Spoiler:
The MiB mission where they're having a meeting with the sectoid leader and his hybrids was a blast to play through and it very much sets up the MiB as alien-dealing goons rather than just misguided humans. Two thumbs up to the guys who came up with that mission.

I like the arsenal of early weapons available, though a few of them have been phased out of my squads after letting me down far too often (SMG and the miniguns). The laser weapons are good and will be distributed amongst my men, and when it comes to Gauss weapons, the Gauss Sniper Rifle is king. Actually, the Gauss Sniper Rifle might be a little too good compared to its Gauss brethren (maybe lowering the ammo count on it would help balance it?)

I am wondering a little bit about production strategies though, is there anything I should be manufacturing for money, or is it all pretty much balanced profit wise?

Last I've played, mass-producing motion sensors seems to be the biggest moneymaker. That or gauss cannons, I forget.

I think it was the gauss cannon ammo, which was incorrectly priced. The cannon, well, it wasn't anything outrageous, though I can't remember exactly.

As for the sensors, they were unchanged from vanilla.
