wut

Okay so I installed the latest nightly and then wanted to try out the Ironfist for the hell of it. Loaded up new battle and....this. I was using V1.1

So I uninstalled V1.1 and installed V1.0 to see if the same problem occurs. And of course, as lucky as I am, of course it did. I have no clue what's causing this. I am considering backing up my data folder, moving it elsewhere, and then moving in an old data folder which I will then install V1.1 again of the Ironfist to see if it's a problem with conflicting mods.

It's probably caused by unpatched version of your game. Make sure to follow the Openxcom instructions: first the official patches, then the Universal Patch.

Wait wait wait.

It said it was in the Windows Installer. I used that to bring my game to 1.0. I then installed the nightlies. Are you telling me I'm missing something?

No no no, I don't mean the Openxcom install. I mean the original X-Com: UFO Defense / UFO: Enemy Unknown files that you import to the Openxcom when it installs.

I'm not sure it's the reason, but that's my educated guess.

Maybe. Probably because I don't have the patched Steam version that was always buggy.

Well maybe, maybe not. I'll try again later.

Nice ship!

But.... yes, sorry, a but!

I arrive at a crash site.

It's a bunch of sectoids and cyberdisks, completely flanking me at all directions.

I make the decision to quit the mission, so my troops escape, but sadly, my tanks are unable to board the craft, as IronFist, is a couple of tiles too close to the edge of the map for the tanks to go on the craft!

Ouch! That's some bad luck.

I feared it would happen, but it was hard to make the ship any shorter. I can look at it again...

I thought about that, but it would have to be 1 tile only, so no help with tanks. :)

Also, the tileset doesn't allow for doors on the left side of the craft.

What about dropping it a level, i.e. no support on legs,

Then you can add sliding doors, rather than ramps (Like Triton from TFTD)?

The elevation is not a problem. I made sliding doors at first, but due to the two exits and the entire layout it didn't look good, so finally I had to get rid of them.

Full of failure potential, craft design is. :)
