why when I made one shot from the laser gun for example, at the end of the battle cage disappears (Not enough equipment to fully re-equip squad)?

I don't really understand. What cage?
Are you referring to spent ammo clips?

Just a tiny question: Can Buddha-X Smokes not be researched directly for a reason? I have a lot of them in the base, but no research pops up and they are not in the Bootypedia by default...

But they are in the Pedia by default.

Furthermore I can't really understand why you still need a dmged one, when you have already researched how to build one.

Think harder.

I am not sure I get this one. So they don't go anywhere? They are just flying around most of the time?

They don't land anywhere accessible to you, ie. not in wilderness but at city's ship terminals.

why when I made one shot from the laser gun for example, at the end of the battle cage disappears (Not enough equipment to fully re-equip squad)?

That's how the game works. It tallies all shots remaning in all the clips of a single type, then re-creates a number of ammo clips. Thing is, it always rounds the number of remaining clips down.

A lore question: why do the raiders, who are mutants themselves, go on mutant prgroms?

Why do humans attack one another including genocidal actions ...

Dioxine, if it isnt too much - could you upload the file (0.98D) to Google Docs. Mediafire is being blocked by my ISP for now.

No. It doesn't work. The reason it didnt work is that the link has to be made shareable. I tried using the id for the file (through another means) and it said I needed permission.

The below steps are what I normally use.

1. Upload file to Drive

2. Right click and select 'Get shareable link'

3. Then paste here

e.g. the below is a link to a random excel sheet

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1TPSl4ZJWLHvbN4WrN9MEGl1Wo20LUuCxMY1IoimUa-I

New version up, should end the problems introduced in the previous one. Alternate Google drive link added for DL-ing.

There's an approximation of saving all rounds available in the bullet saving patch on the dev subforum. Might encourage greater weapon diversity as players don't have to be as careful with what they use to save clips.

I'm on the fence with this. It really helps if you have a single weapon of a type, but can lead to bullets magically appearing out of nowhere. Probably would be best to add as an option; along with a ruleset parameter 'always save ammo' which would give you a clip (or don't destroy & then refill a clipless weapon), no matter how many charges get used (remember 255 charges in laser guns in the OG?). It could be for example used for weapons where clips are merely used to change damage type.
