Sorry, it's never been the case, even in the original game.
But X-Com has many such legends... ;)
WOW!! It may have been my cousin, who advised it or a gaming magazine.. 

I can stop overburdening my soldiers now... :D  Thank You!
No. The way to increase secondary stats is to do stuff, shoot, throw, melee.
Thank You!!

I'm having loads of fun with this mod, really enjoying the difficulty and the strategies you have to create to manage the situation, good job!
But i've noticed a couple of things, for example i couldn't find a guild stapler in the warehouse missions (only ammo and didn't use explosive), i've found it in the "govt recovery mission" with all the ballers?

Also enemies are shooting me through the windows of the airbus and blowfish while i can't fire outside, is this intended? It's kind of bs when you land right in front of 20 guys that start to gun you down like no tomorrow as soon as you approach the doors to go out.
It's the only thing that i actually hate about this mod.

Playing with latest version ofc

Hi, just yesterday I had warehouse mission (I think 3-4 from begining) and leader has it. So it is not 100% drop here.

With shooting through the windows it could happen that you have to kneel to see the shooter. Or stay on tile far from window...

Also love this mode  ;D

Shooting through craft windows is intended. Try to move around a bit, you can shoot out.

Ok so i have just been unlucky it seems, i've done like 5/6 warehouse without finding the stapler, needless to say i've been stuck with low tier guns for over a year!
It's hard as hell fighting marsec operatives with basic guns.

The randomized drop tables can be incredibly annoying. It took me until 2604 to find an Industrial Scanner. I find it funny how the Sentry is equipped with an "expensive scanning suite", and yet the Cutter is the small ship with a chance (albeit incredibly low) to drop a scanner.

Well, these are (I'd assume) two different types of scanner. Sentry has the type that deals with detection - radar, infrared, EM, whatever. Cutter has something like a XXVIth century version of a 3D scanner - one that allows scanning objects for analysis and production purposes.

In the XVIth century those were usually called "eyes". :P

Mumbleball question:
What the heck does this do?  I didn't notice any effect on the battlefield. It didn't even start mumbling..  ?

If something step over, It is going to emit a funny track and low morale of the thing steeping over

Think of it like a proxy grenade filled with canned psi-panic.


Also, I've come back to the mod after quite a while, pretty amazing how much has changed. You've already produced a game I enjoy more than most AAA titles. However, I don't know whether to be relieved or disappointed that the comic book research tree doesn't unlock punching glove arrows.

Highest difficulty, ironman:
Two enemy convoys appeared. I attacked with quad cannons mounted on pachyderms and the two took down at least three of my ships before going down. They required so many rounds to crash them that I was wondering if quad-cannons are useless against enemy convoys?  Now they are down and I'm highly curious what my Convoy team will find down there at those two crash sites.  ???

The armored convoy "craft" have some armor, if memory serves. so low damage per shot weapons like the quad and 25mm are less effective. Armor in air combat is a flat reduction to any hull damage taken.

Thank You. I can see they are composed of essentially a "pogrom party". Dogs, armored cars, tough guys, etc.. They flooded my convoy with fire grenades and various explosives. I'll have to run!!  ...
I decided to take a stand there and from my three best fighters, picked for their highest ability, only one remained. She could barely get out of that hell with 6 injured survivors from the mighty 24.
