Hello again. Just managed to play the mod after so long. I would just like to point out a few things that I think you could work on later on.

- Why do we still get The Martian Solution after researching a leader? Didn't we defeat the aliens on Mars long ago, or have you decided to make Mars the base of operations for the Micronoids in this mod?

- Some aliens (Skeletoid, Psimorph, etc.) use the Anthropod as a placeholder in their inventory screen. Please replace these with the appropriate images later on. The Skeletoid, in particular, appears to have the right image on its research screen.

That's all. Hoping for your consideration. Thank you.

Thank you for feedback. Yes, you are correct, those things are all WIP, thus incomplete.
I've been occupied with the redesign of the tanks, I wanted to do it from the beginning; but it took much, much more time than I originally imagined. I almost done, I just need to test that everything works before releasing new version.

It seems that a lot of people are upset with calendars!
The game starts on 01 January 2084!
It will be a SATURDAY instead of Friday!  ;)   ;D

  weekday: 7

In year 2059, due to climate change, the calendar will be shifted back by one day.
So it's actually going to be Friday.

Hello Robin! :)

Found a few bugs today while playing. :)

1st screen. Worm name.
2, 2.2st screen. On the map is Oculant, and when examined, it turns out an Anthropod.
3st screen. Very strange display of the tank.
4st screen. Another wrong name.

Tank bug save :)

At this stage of the game, I found that in many places there are not enough lines with the main description. :)
Also, the weapon lacks the main lines with a description.

And most NPCs have a picture of an Anthropod. :D

Saves are just on those NPCs where both weapons have the string STR_***

Yes, I'm having trouble getting through:

1. In the last 20+ hours of the game, I have not found the "Alien Sensor" (screenshot 15, which should lead to a new hyrid ship.) :(

2. After researching Psymorph Commander, he had to give a new research. Which he successfully did not give, thus "Kydonia or Death" is not possible to study. (screenshot 14)

3. 3 types of ships do not appear at all. Assault, Supply, and Battleship.(screenshot 16)

4. Invalid mission name.(screenshot 17)

Save for convenience to check :)

Thanks for feedback

I cannot understand why you do not get the Alien Sensors.
You should get them with every UFO, everything seems in place:
Code: [Select]
items:
  - type: STR_ALIEN_NAVIGATION
    size: 0.2
    costSell: 80000
    specialType: 3
    recoveryPoints: 5
research:
  - name: STR_ALIEN_NAVIGATION
    cost: 700
    points: 15
    needItem: true
    destroyItem: true
All the MCDs have the Target_Type:59 properly set to "3" (matching specialType).
So it should really work.
I guess I need help on this....


Similar situation for the PSYMORPH: it is missing The Martian Solution for the next research.
Martian Solution should unlock when you research a Skeletoid Leader, which you did so it should be there, but it is not for some reason.
But all this is going to be changed so I'm not going to worry about this.
