Mod size limit in XcomFiles 1.7b is 3000, not 2000.
Just install the mod properly and don't mix it with old versions or anything.
It's really easy.

Hi Meridian,
because I need to update OXCE and the Mod I ask here again.
How do I do this "properly"? It confuses me all the time when I try to update.

I am not Meridian, but I will answer anyway.

1. Delete the original mod in {your path}/user/mods/
2. Copy new mod directory into {your path}/user/mods/

That is how I update mods. It is slower than just copying (replace older) the new files in, but makes sure that any files that should no longer exist are removed.

I second this. This is the only surefire way to avoid unintended behaviour/bugs/other mod-related weirdness in case ruleset-definitions, filenames, etc. change between versions.

I pushed two experimental  UI features by Buscher:
One is sending multiple crafts as "wing" using shift (one is leading, rest is following it)
Second is option for continuing given mission after HK attack

There will be some tweaks and updates to it.

How do I change the mana skill in soldierTransformation? Is there some trick?

Code: [Select]
soldierTransformation:
  - name: STR_ELITE_TRAINING_A
    flatOverallStatChange:
      psiStrength: 5 # works fine in OXCE 7.0
  - name: STR_ELITE_TRAINING_B
    flatOverallStatChange:
      mana: 1 # does not work in OXCE 7.0
  - name: STR_ELITE_TRAINING_C
    flatOverallStatChange:
      manaPool: 1 # does not work in OXCE 7.0

Thanks for help.

After searching I found my mistake: There was an
"upperBoundAtMaxStats: true"
and mana limits not in my mind. Now all is fine.  :)

Having a play through of Vanilla XCOM: UFO Defense with my kid and he mentioned something - In X Piratez we could see status indicators for units that were stunned, bleeding etc. However we couldnt see such when using OpenXcom Extended - did I miss the option for it or is there a mod that adds it? I didnt want to open a new thread for this.

It requires a mod.
I haven't seen a standalone mod just for this around, but it is easy to create once you have the images.
