I think there might be a terrain issue in 2.6. No errors in openxcom.log, but there are obvious missing tiles in the ground. Attaching a screenshot. Which bits are relevant from the savegame to identify which file this is?

Yeah, some issue with terrain, thanks. I'll have a look.

Some days ago I've started new game with new FMP 2.6. Now I've got a OXC crash (see image below) and am wondering: what to do? I've read some pages earlier about shaman voodoo with save file, but will it help permanently and without any loss? I mean game (or something) have placed these lines in save file so there is a need for them or they may be restored even after deletion.

Found a different solution without altering save files: loaded latest battlescape save and took a different set of actions that lead to the end of battle. After that there was no crash.

And I also found some bugged terrain, not sure if it the same tileset from different angle or not.

Hi everyone loving this mod but thing I've run into a problem I'm able to manufacture alien laser rifle but there's not option to make the ammunition for it is this a glitch and will I have to start again as I'm sure I could manufacture them before then after researching laser weapons it dissappeared.

I'm having this same issue. I researched Alien Laser Rifle but never got an option to research the clips for it even though I've researched Elerium-115

Save file is attached.

OK, everything should work now.

And I also found some bugged terrain, not sure if it the same tileset from different angle or not.

This works fine now, too.

But you clearly have both in your Ufopaedia...
Examining the save confirms it.

EDIT:

Version 2.7 has been released.

- Overhauled Geoscape to tidy up some terrains.
- New terrains: Postindustrial (by Dioxine), Commercial, Forest Marsh, Native Urban.
- Fixed and improved Port (by Dioxine), Forest (many blocks by Finnik), Desert and Farm terrains.
- Enabled City terrain for UFO landings.
- Fixed some walking units floating a little over the ground.
- Removed an unneeded variant of Anthropod race.

This version has some deep changes to the globe, so please report any unusual behaviour.

Yeah I noticed that as well. Oddly I never researched it and it doesn't show up in the list of items I can manufacture. I'll try a new playthrough with the new version and see if it happens again.

How nice, a new version while i am still in the early stages of a new play-through. Me happy and willing to test "unusual behavior"  ;)

I did a basic diff with respect to the previous version (to get a feeling if it is safe enough to upgrade for my comfort level) and found a number of values that are marked as oxce only in the ruleset reference.
I'm not sure about the impact on the mod, but found it worth mentioning.

For "units_FMP.rul", the entries:
Code: [Select]
floatHeight:
For "mapScripts_FMP.rul", the entries:
Code: [Select]
verticalGroup:
crossingGroup:

P.s. If you decided that oxce is required for newer versions of this modpack, you can just ignore those points.

Unit floatHeight is OXC too.

The other two are OXCE only.

Oops! should have checked.

Will this cause problems with terrain generation? I think not, since standard roads are defined, but let me ask just in case.

BTW I shouldn't be saying this, but I'm getting tired of developing the FMP, since OXC soesn't seem to support even simple, essential functions... I know it's not really supposed to, because it's "to play the original game", but it makes FMP development pretty frustrating.

Although i'm quite the noob when it comes to mapscript i did some testing using the "skirmish" (new battle) function.
Using the "Terror mission" setup with the following terrains (if i understand the rules correctly those are the only ones affected):
  • Postindustrial  (mapscript: INDUSTRIALSLUM)
  • Port with Pier (mapscript: PORTTFTD)

The 1st one loads correctly and seems ok.
The 2nd one crashes consistently with the following log entries.
Code: [Select]
...
[23-05-2020_15-49-39] [FATAL] ./openxcom(OpenXcom::BattlescapeGenerator::addLine(OpenXcom::MapDirection, std::vector<SDL_Rect*, std::allocator<SDL_Rect*> > const*)+0xe9) [0x5574d0fc4fb9]
[23-05-2020_15-49-39] [FATAL] ./openxcom(OpenXcom::BattlescapeGenerator::generateMap(std::vector<OpenXcom::MapScript*, std::allocator<OpenXcom::MapScript*> > const*)+0xfcc) [0x5574d0fc82ac]
...

Although this seems more related to a "rects" definition. Altering the "mapscripts_FMP.rul" to the snippet below (e.g. disable the "rects") allows loading and then it looks ok.
Code: [Select]
...
  - type: PORTTFTD
    commands:
    - type: addLine
      direction: vertical
      verticalGroup: 5
#      rects:
#        - [5, 0, 1, 6]
    - type: addCraft
    - type: addUFO
    - type: addLine
      direction: vertical
    - type: addBlock
      size: 2
      executions: 4
    - type: fillArea
...
So from a basic look it seems the "verticalGroup" and "horizontalGroup" by themselves do not negatively affect map generation. Although i'm not sure how those maps are supposed to look like, they just seem ok at first glance ;)

As for your last comment:
If anyone has earned the right to make such a statement it surely must be you.
By maintaining/developping 2 huge mods you are in the unique position to experience first hand how much the 2 ruleset capabilities have diverged (from a modder perspective).
You have maintained FMP for longer than i can remember (thank you for that) and i can only say that it shows character you are still willing to spend time on a mod that limits you on what you can use (ruleset wise) while your skills has been honed to the capabilities of OXCE.

What exactly is OpenXCom Extended? Is there a version of FMP that runs with it? I feel like I've missed something important (wouldn't be the first time lol).

OpenXCom Extended is OpenXCom that is Extended in modding capabilities and FMP should not needed it as it should be compatible with normal OXC

I see. Sorry for my misunderstanding. I thought by the posts above that Solarius Scorch was maintaining two versions of the same mod pack or something. One for OXC and one for OXCE. English is my first language but I never said I was very good at it  ;D
