Re: [COMPILATION][RESEARCH] FMP Core/Tech Tree part

From Hobbes' thread:

Just tested Industrial terrain 4 times and everything seems OK. I'd also like to know if he was using the fixed map blocks for Railyard or the old buggy ones.

I should have the latest version of all terrain files in 1.0.3, but just in case I'll copy them again.

FYI: That change of terrain seems to be fixed with the latest nightly but it still creates that vector error.

...

It would be nice if you could link to the post directly next time . :D I have found it easily but just in case the search function fails and whatnot. And I am really curious as to whether there is a version discrepancy of the map tiles/blocks or not.

EDIT: I am dumb. I could just have clicked the link to the quote.

There's a tool for that made by a helpful soul, look in this thread. (I can't find it right now.)

I think I know what's the problem but I can't figure out the why. Either way I can offer a solution or rather workaround to the vector issue.

The problem is that I got the 1 in a billion of a savegame seed that causes these crashes. And it's rather picky as well by choosing which terrain blocks/alien deployment it wants to crash with.

I have found the seed value in the savegame and I tried to toggle a few bits. Toggling the LSB didn't change the behavior while replacing the seed value with another number did. I am not sure if Warboy would appreciate me spilling the beans, so I am gonna leave it there.

As for the solution/workaround, assuming someone gets such a seed and plays without savescumming, this is the way to fix it:
Enable savescumming, head to a tactical mission (important!), make a new save, disable savescumming, continue playing.

What are the odds of getting a problem such as this...

Solaris, check alienDeployments for Terror Missions. The FMP defines 5 item levels but there are several alien ranks that only have 4 item levels defined on alienDeployment.

Also, check the .ru statstrings since there's some incorrect indentation on the  STR_HEAVY_SNIPER_RIFLE_UFOPEDIA entry.

Yeah. I think I've fixed it already, but thanks for the extra eyes.

I'm wondering if this is the cause for the vector m range crashes, but I think that any issues with this would crash the mission when it is being generated.

1.0.4 is online. It fixes some bugs and it's also the first (probably not last) version of the improved Skymarshall.

Please let me know how it goes.

Thanks Solarius, you're really spending a lot of time on this, don't you?

Which nightly would you recoomend? I am considering openxcom_git_master_2015_03_26_1845.zip, but I am afraid of one commit there (from yesterday)... judging just by the name it sounds like it could break stuff, but I don't really understand what it does... this one: https://github.com/SupSuper/OpenXcom/commit/3db6da256841183d482344662634c1468bab6270

I have no idea. I don't really have time for thorough tests at the moment. But I'm guessing 2015_03_26_1845 is kind of necessary, otherwise bad things could happen with terrains.

Looks like it reverts stuff back to the way it was, recent nightlies made terrain texture override terrain defined in alien deployment, but prior system allowed for more options and latest versions of terrain pack were already built upon that system.

That commit had two proposes: install item recovery during, and at the end of multi-part missions for TFTD (this shouldn't cause any problems). And a recent change I asked Warboy to reverse, where terrains assigned to textures would override terrains listed in alienDeployments, which limits designing new missions. This last change might cause issues but they should be minor, like terrains being wrongly assigned.

Thanks for the additional explanations, guys.

As for the tech tree questions, look at this post, Shifter55 attaches a cmap file with a (slightly outdated now) FMP tech tree.

Hopefully it'll be useful, or at least an inspiration.

Hello folks  :)

1.0.4 version downloaded from the mod portal is not compatible with 1.0 milestone right? Hell 1.0 users cannot play any mod at all, i suppose, attached here's a shot.
