It's not a glitch. You need to first research elerium 115 in order to make alien laser rifle clips.

I've been looking at the effectiveness of various weapons against sectoids for this mod currently. You might be suprised to know that the shotgun (alloy slug) appears to have the highest effectiveness of all combat tech for one-hit-kill probabillities at snap and possibly even auto against a basic sectoid until gauss sniper (snap) is used.

the average range of engagement in a confined space is aproximately 10 squares.... the range penalty at 8 doesn't reduce accuracy below 100%.  Shotguns with slug ammunition have a 73.50% chance of killing a sectoid on a single shot. Paired with a sniper rifle (alloy) at a 80% one-hit-kill probabillity at range, this is basically the ultimate riflemen combination for early game combat against sectoids

What can I say - shotties work very well in their specific niche, if you manage to keep the spread in check.

After the year of my absence here, it is so great to see that work is still going on and new ideas had been implemented! A thousand of thanks to author and all people involved in. This Mod is really awesome!

Hello!
1) It looks like a bug:
units.rul:
Chtonite (all ranks)
floatHeight: 2
I thought they walk with their feet.

2) Question:
alienRaces.rul:
STR_ANTHROPOD and STR_ANTHROPODB include an absolutely identical list of ranks. For what? What's the point?

It's not just Chtonites, but several other units too! What a strange bug.

You're right, at this point I can remove it.
