The alien base cannot find the upgrade rule for its current age of 13 months.

Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_NINJA_BASE_HQ_2_ASSAULT
    .....
    alienBaseUpgrades:
      15:                                                                  # <--- change this number from 15 to 0 (in `Piratez_Factions.rul`)
        STR_NINJA_BASE_HQ_2_ASSAULT: 100
      20:
        STR_NINJA_BASE_HQ_2_ASSAULT: 70
        STR_NINJA_BASE_HQ_3_ASSAULT: 30
      25:
        STR_NINJA_BASE_HQ_3_ASSAULT: 100

The definition for age from 0 to 14 months is missing, you can fix it by changing the number 15 in the definition to 0 (zero).

Hi guys. I have a segmentation fault when I try to start a ninja raid site mission. I've had this mission twice before - the first one loaded correctly, but I escaped after the first turn, and the second one had the same problem. Is it possible to do something with it? I could just skip this mission, but how likely are these errors to block me from some important mission?

It's a map generation issue.
The mapscript wants to add a line (addLine command), but likely doesn't find the necessary mapblocks.
The mapblocks are not found, because the site is in the ocean and there's no globeTerrain.

Attached is a fixed save... I moved the site a little bit, back on land.

The bars that got added to the top of access lifts are mean.  What’s it take to bust through them?

I've encountered a case where the unit refused to attack. In the image, my gal is standing behind an enemy, and can't attack with the handle (or punch).
The enemy is clearly seen, stands there (blocks movement/clicks), and attacks target & hit it as expected.
There is a platform above and below, so the enemy can't accidentally be on a different Z level.

If you still have the save, I can explain it.

Found the issue, it happens only during the base defense.

First bug: not only aliens, but also civilians/neutrals try to destroy your base facilities :)
Second bug: even though the weapon was correctly discarded during attack planning (as not usable), it is wrongly considered again during patrol planning (patrol routine includes attacking base facilities)

I'll fix both in the next release.

Following the discussion currently in the main thread, I read the czech list of names for Slave Soldiers.

I noticed that some names and surnames are duplicite.
From names: Durin
From surnames: Burian, Kapóne, Lukas, Lí, Medvídek, Radegast, Roháč, Wrajt

There are also cases where there are two names which mean and sound the same, but are written differently. I assumed these cases are intentional.

Repeated crash.  Error box said 'Segmentation Faulting'.
