It set as on. It was such from the beginning I started play OXC.
No problem. I sold it. And I will do so if found any more.

What you're saying cannot be true and everyone knows that. I'm using the same mechanics in my mod for dozens of items and never once it has failed.

Regarding other things:

Skymarshall FTW.

Agreed with Sturm's logic on soldiers' stats, "training" or "lack of training" are relative things, and a civilian seems to be the only watermark available. True, this makes it hard to explain how your soldiers turn from "trained" to "superheroes"... Anyway this discussion always comes back... It's a matter of personal opinion really.

Pixel editing: you can pixel edit in Photoshop (while in Indexed Color mode). A crucial difference with Paint: your pictures do not need tedious post-processing to become useable by the game.

I think my version failed since the first install. Not just the infinite data slate. No way to research spitter autopsy. Spitter corpse is a combat knife for me and if try pick up the game crashes.
Something went wrong along the install if only I have these troubles. Or something was wrong with the vanilla x-com?

I shall completely remove both (clean registry aswell) and reinstall everything again.

Version 0.9.4 is up, and it contains many changes!
[...]

As always, get it here: https://www.openxcom.com/mod/final-mod-pack. But before installing, please download the latest nightly, or you may experience some bad mojo!


Has anyone tested it under Android?

Well, even trained soldiers are green at the start and become veterans later. I had a discussion about it with a game developer that served as a medic in military and he told me that according to research people change physiologically when they win fights - for example testosterone increases. Veterans are also less likely to die after receiving the same wound than green soldiers, so HP rising is justified to some point.
Though yeah, it's weird that they can become more powerful than alien species engineered for combat.

Yeah, I was such an idiot... I downloaded the necessary nightly but forgot to install it.
Now almost everything works correctly. Chtonite and Reptoids have no inventory portrait, everything is plain black. But it is not important. Mind-controll them is not worth the time. Mind-controll is pretty useless by the way... both in vanilla and in OXC. Easier to shot down anything with laser rifles or plasma rifles...

Anyway, some training facilities would be good. Cycling the 10 men crews to train them in missions has so much hassle. But need to implement a border how far their stats may improved by such facilities - like you know training do not equal with real experiences - and what could they train (bravery could be trained? Reaction, accuracy and power could be...).

Are MiB troops ever assault x-com bases? Almost a dozen of their crafts searched my base with "alien retaliation" but no battleships ever launched to attack. I always let them find my base (not shot them down with the Ravens) but they never come.
They fear :)

I'd be willing to do some legwork {figuratively speaking} regarding color-coding various alien ranks. Anything I should know?

i like more color for ranks what but the downside of this is the uselessness of mindprobe
i frequently used it to determine what aliens were worth the stunning-risk
no i can spare the 3-4 mindprobe guys in the background
for me its a bit of a gameplay change to an easier mode

Well, it varies. The mind probe can be rather useless with the line of fire option enabled as it is.

I checked the manual and apparently X-Com has "the world's finest pilots, soldiers, scientists and engineers". Which would imply that realistically, these guys should be statted-out like special forces soldiers. I think there are tens of thousands of them around the world, so realistically, it would be possible to recruit only from elite units without ever being in danger of the recruit pool drying up.

Apologies I haven't been around lately, I played volleyball a lot and last night I went bowling.

well i have a strange bug to report not sure whether it is from this mod or OXC itself ...
once one of my soldiers is minde controlled and is about to act the game crashes not sure what to do about it

I haven't tested it yet, but I strongly doubt it comes from the FMP...

I'd be willing to do some legwork {figuratively speaking} regarding color-coding various alien ranks. Anything I should know?

It's a very broad question. Most of the difficulty comes to the fact that it's an artistic work. And just don't mess up the palette.

0.94 Edit

Thanks, will have a look ASAP.

I have this same issue and I'm on a Sectoid mission with a very large ship...completely stuck now, can't make it to end of current turn as it crashes as soon as one of my guys gets mind controlled.

FIX PLEASE
