Yes, with a little bit of doctoring - you'll have to add the "master mod name" or something to the old save file else the game will ignore it. But there's a good possibility the mod will be supporting Commendations so you'll have a good incentive to start over anyway :)

btw Dioxine you know that you can set ammo to zero for not-weapons weapons? This will hide it on intercept and patrol screen (but there only ammo count).

Is it possible to upload it seperately so I can check it out? I already have one researched. Or will it cause problems you think?

Problems, no, I'd just have to prepare a separate rul file with separate sprite declarations etc... I just don't feel like wasting my time on it :) Picture you can find in Airtight Hangar, the text goes:

These rich guys are slow and very easy to catch. They should lose some weight since it's not even fun. The only 'weapons' they normally carry are booze and cash.

Was trying the 9j version with the lates (25 may) nightly and some of the ufopedia/inventory icons where mixed/messed up. I dioscovered that when using the debug mode.

Just one thing: This mod is so incredibly huge... Wow.  :o :o Alone going through the ufopedia took me longer than some games i played  :)

Really great work, you are a truly creative and productive person!

I've decided against including Soldier Diaries just yet - the build is a bit unstable yet, plus the medals would have to be converted to the Pirate theme, which is a huge amount of work. However, almost everything I've wanted to add is already added, so I think Wendesday is a quite likely release date.

Apart from a ton of Extended options, the new version will include various new toys, Zharkov's Superslave (& related stuff), and more.

Not sure if the Training Room will make it before the next ed, but there is at least a Gym Suit: :)

Do you think the saves will translate from one ed to the next or will there be major hick ups and we will need to start over?
