just researched sectopod construction and noticed that sectopod laser and sectopod plasma have the same specs but sectopod plasma needs 10 more elerium  to be produced
is this intended?

Yes, because it has unlimited plasma shots. That's the same case as with tanks: plasma cannons need Elerium.
(Perhaps it should be overhauled, so that you produce plasma "clips" from Elerium? But currently it6's impossible for tanks.)

missing text in FMP 0.9.4:

Arrrrgh sorry. It happens periodically. I'll fix it.

got a reply regarding the Fog issue here is a quote

That's exactly what I thought, too. I'm not sure if I should change it or not, since the Salamandron is obviously taller than that and it doesn't seem to cause problems...

Ranked Sectoids - I opted for a simple band around their heads in favor of full recolors because, in all honesty, I think the latter would have looked more than a little silly. I briefly considered only recoloring the eyes, but that would have only identified their rank if hey were facing the camera.

Would this work?

Now, floaters. I'm not sure about the commander color scheme, though.

The commander color scheme uses the Floater's default color streak, so I used a similar-looking streak instead - however, that makes the visual difference between the two rather small, and thus might be hard to distinguish between the two.

I could use an entirely different color, but I'd prefer to keep the color-coding as consistent as possible.

Or I could recolor the soldier's cloak into something else, but that's the kind of fundamental design change I'm a little leery of undertaking.

Ideas?

I like the headpiece on the Sectoid, at least the Leader could profit from this solution. Really nice.

Floaters, yeah, they should keep their capes. I like your results, but...

...but why would you use .bmp?! :'( Not only it'll require doing the entire transparency work, but it'll be a pain to fix the sprites themselves, because I'm sure there'll be errors.

I figured that's what pckview exports into, that's what would be most easily imported.

I'm guessing PNG instead?

Yes, that'd be best. Please. :)

The core races, in glorious PNG.

I am not happy with Ethereals, but with loose robes and no distinguishing features, there's not much left to highlight. On the upside, they only have three used ranks.

Seems that I found a bug.
First of all, I' playing latest Android build, but this seems not to be a problem. I'm just started new game on Superhuman difficulty and got big ship with Sectoid Leader in January. After finishing this mission I found an alien data slate, which I have researched an next. And now the problem - after research I could investigate it again and again, so now in late February I have already researched elerium and delta radiation - and still have data slate in inventory. Should it not have been consumed after first investigation?

look in advanced options - "research consumes item" needs to be turned on manually

I found another issue, and this one's a crasher : p

It seems that STR_MUTON_MEDIC is missing its items: entry.  The upshot of this is that when you stun one to take home, the game crashes on the debriefing screen since it tries to look up the rule info for each item in the base's storage and can't find any info for STR_MUTON_MEDIC.

here's the stack trace, for the "technical" proof:

Yay! I need time for this, but I'll certainly use at least some of them.

You are correct! The entry was missing. I added it, thanks.

As it turns out, they may or may not work after all. I've been using PCKview to export them, and apparently it has some... palette issues. So, I'm going to retry with BombBloke's tools and see where that takes me.

Run them through Falko's pallette converter?

Did Muton medics messed with Waspites?
I researched a Waspite commander and I got a free alien (so far only medics granted this or engineers the mechanic races) but Cydonia not unlocked to research. I were need to capture another commander for that (this time it was a Sectoid).

And something is wrong with the Drones. Hybrids are eager to attack in the first few turns (then enough of them killed to keep them constantly panicked) but Drones just come, move BUT so far they never even tried to fire. Not funny as without them Hybrids are not dangerous even for just-recruited rookies.

By the way what determines the aliens' grenade using habits? Mutons and Chtonites are often throw grenades the rest of the races I never seen to do so. Or it corresponding to the game's difficulty?
