Yep, the Ground Convoy missions. They use the Small and Medium Ground Convoy UFOs, with a max speed of 5000 and an acceleration of 10. For comparison, a Thunderstorm rates a 4000 and a 4, making it literally impossible to catch until you have all the prerequisites to make Firestorms and Tormentors. The UFOpaedia entry also lists it as basically a freight mission, which doesn't really jibe with speeds that would put ICBMs to shame.

The funny thing is, these UFOs should not be able to move at all. I didn't have much luck spawning them, so I can't say for sure, but they seem to be bugged. I'll fix them.

Ahhh. Well, in the meantime, I just edited my ruleset and took off a zero. I'll see how that goes.

Was previously using 0.9.6.1.  Just did a fresh install of OpenXcom (I broke something), installed 0.9.7 on fresh install, get an error:

Code: [Select]
Error with unit: STR_ALIEN_DRONE_TERRORIST: Unit height may not exceed 25
Make sure you installed OpenXcom correctly.

This shows up in the DOS-looking window right as OXC tries loading at the very start.  OpenXcom works just fine with your mod disabled.  I opened your mod and found the offending unit, but its standing height is at 21.  Not sure what's going on >.>  I compared its stats to the one in 0.9.6.1, they're identical.

This is absolutely the ONLY mod I have installed, and it is the ONLY mod I am trying to enable.

Using openxcom_git_master_2014_11_17_1232 Nightly.

+1 on the crash bug. Fresh install of Openxcom, grabbed latest nightly (openxcom_git_master_2014_11_17_1232), unzipped. Openxcom works fine. Activated FinalModPack.rul, Openxcom restarted as it does when activating mods, and BOOM! crash to console window showing the same thing endersblade saw.


In same boat as endersblade, Final Mod Pack is the only mod installed, and the only one I'm trying to activate.


Windows 7 32-bit.

It's a check added two days ago, floatHeight+standHeight should be < 25

STR_ALIEN_DRONE_TERRORIST
STR_CEREBREAL_LARVA_TERRORIST
STR_SALAMANDRON_TERRORIST

These are the three offenders.

Thanks for pointing it out. Yeah, I have always been aware of this discrepancy, but left it as it was since there was no problem with it and I felt it was appropriate. So it was a design decision, mostly.

Now I need to change it...

EDIT:

0.9.7.1 is online. It's basically a fix, but I also added Yrizoud's landmine. Thanks, mate!

I don't know if this has been brought up yet, but I have noticed one minor problem. The starting medkits have a shown TU cost that doesn't match up with the actual cost. It's not really a big issue, but it's one which has been around for a while.

I know, but I have no idea how to fix it. Either it's hardcoded or I'm missing something obvious.

A solution would be making all medikits identical in terms of TU use, but where's the fun in that?

Just downloaded the latest nightly and the new update to FMP and got this. I don't know if it's a bug in the new nightly or the modpack, but now you know.

Reverting back to openxcom_git_master_2014_11_16_0533 seems to have fixed it. Several newer nightlies seems to reproduce the problem as well.

I think I'm gonna strangle someone. :P Probably myself.

I need to sit down and do some tests, but I don't know if it's the mod being incompatible with the newest nightly or it's a bug in the nightly itself.

Does it happen often?

(Of course, this can be attributed to X-Com going into action with full force. Screw buildings integrity!)

EDIT: Apparently Warboy is doing some mighty work on the map generator. Let's for now assume these are temporary problems. If they persist, I'm sure mods can be altered to ensure smooth functioning.

I got it consistently even after reloading on the geoscape. (Save-scumming is on, so seeds are randomized each time.) 5 landings on the same crash-site, different layout every time but the pilot decided to crash into buildings every single time.

the definition where a craft can land is not "type: 1" anymore but "group: 1"
so adding "group: 1" for all "type: 1" should help
group 2-4 is used for the operation addline (to make roads)
so here hopefully one can do a similar fix
i did not see anything in the scripts in reagerd to the old "type: 5...8" i assume its not used anymore

Question, do Muton Praetorians fall under the leader category for research purposes? {a glance at the ruleaset implies no, but I might be misreading}

Also, what are the steps required for adding/replacing a new alien sprite? I did some basic race recolors a while back, but I realized that I need to recolor the inventory sprites as well {at the very least}. Is there a tutorial or something one might recommend?
