There's a bug after the first Ninja event for me.

I have got same crash issue but hard to tell what is triggering it.
To reproduce:
- load save
- skip time on geoscape (ignore prepper camp mission, I have skipped time by 30 minutes)

This is clean installation and game started from beginning.

I encountered that bug as well, but I deleted the save and restarted before thinking to submit it. Clean installation as well.

Bit of a shame particularly since we've currently got screenshots of the error happening on a Windows 7 machine (FFS it's out of support, stop using it!) and a Windows 11 system, so with my Windows 10 install it would complete the trifecta. :)

There are possible fixes in Bugs & Crashes thread.

OK thanks, I've tried the option of removing MEGASCORPION_ARMOR from Piratez_Events.rul, we shall see if it works. I know this problem definitely didn't exist in 6.0.2 so I wonder what happened, but it's just skipping some research so no matter.

Also I guess I could be wrong about it being Windows 7 - I mean it could be Vista, they share mostly the same appearance. But that would be worse.  8)

If I understand the files properly:
There's a new event which gives pedia entry about random enemy armor and the megascorpion option was missing from research.
Removing megascorpion armor from event will allow it to fire properly but never give you the scorpion entry (small loss), but now there is also mod posted which should fix the missing research option.

Lil thought: s of 0.99N6.07 i'd swap the bootyopedia pics for "rank: boss" and "rank: big boss" botypedia articles since the former is more of a "macho" type and seems to suggest a more powerful reputation.

Also, a couple of lines more about the recruitment limit for ogres in the article explaining why might be also nice touch. (maybe ther're solitary, or what)  8)

Edit: i also have nearly completed the smart weapon family (smartgun, smartpistol, smartshotgun) but missing the smartrifle because it needs "advanced rifle". Since it seems might be unlocked only by some specific research, could be another more esay way to get it?  :'(

Edit 2: as for ogres the only clue provided Is that they are rare, a bit some more specific info would be better i think

Found your mod thanks to some drama posted in other places.
Thanks for your work.

It did not exist because the event causing it did not exist yet, it was added in 6.0.3. It was I think definitely fixed in 6.0.7.

I wouldn't. Big Boss moves beyond 'just a bigger gal with more complete clothing' and shifts the rank picture gradation towards flashiness, wealth and technology. Badass captain outfit, for one, and a laser gun. As for any 'machismo' it's only your interpretation. Ofc the anime style is debatable, but there are sevaral ranks above that still.

You should use the larger character for Big Boss to reflect the fact that Boss has gotten Bigger.

When Naked Snake became Big Boss he didnt get bigger.

Never played Metal Gear, but wasn't Naked Snake already Bigger than the Boss from the beginning? So he just got his rightful rank. :P

Another thing, expeditions should be manufacturable at hideouts like hunt parties, right now these are buyable instead..i think only recon expeditions should avaiable via black market, what do you think about?

Definitely better to be buyable rather than manufactured imo, but ideally both because why not. I think it's better for craft like Expedition to be available without having to bother with workshop space and runts and so on.

Sry forgot to tell: as of now actually the party is manufacturable even without and extractor, so would be nice to have expeditions that way. Also an option to disable th hyperwave decoder, as happens for the hideout shroud would be nice.
