Rod of Bliss can't be used. I tested it on the Star God Operative that Báječná Žíla is standing on, on Tak Mohorovicic that I accidentally brought onto the mission in a crate, and on a random standing gal.

None of them could be targetted by the medical use of Rod of Bliss.

No idea. Even in ANAL it says: viable targets: enemy on the ground, friendly on the ground, neutral on the ground. Please take this to OXCE team, could be a new engine bug...

It may be because SG Operatives are bleed immune, and the Rod of Bliss can't be used on bleed immune targets.
I made a small mod that changes the Rod to be usable on bleed immune targets, so you can try that and see if it resolves the issue. It worked for me in a quick battle, and allowed me to use a Rod on a downed SG Guardian when I couldn't without the mod.

I discovered it is because medikits can't be used on bleed immune targets and reported it as such on OXCE bugs.

Edit: But now, that I see there is an option to allow medikits to bypass this, I removed that message.

This explains the same problem with "Green Lighter", thanks.

Thanks for the fix of the Rod. Green lighter behaviour is intended (he gets baked), the only way to keep him afloat would be to use a weapon that removes stun (NOT medikit).

Also I want to mention some unexpected (but logical and, sadly, unavoidable) situation when a unit with limited sight looks at a unit with camouflage.  For example, when "bat glad" with his 25 sight at day tries to aim at "ninja gal" with her -15 day camo, it may appear that "bat glad" became just blind. There are even more extreme examples, of course.

Thank you, Dioxine, patch 6.0.4 fixes this problem.
But then...

Same problem, random research crash...
With 6.0.4 no any crash...but 6.0.5.

You can find and remove MEGASCORPION_ARMOR from Piratez_Events.rul

It doesn't solve the problem, we just skip the research.

The game stopped crashing for me after I added below code to Piratez.rul:

Code: [Select]
- name: MEGASCORPION_ARMOR
  needItem: true
  destroyItem: true

I put it above GIANT_BEETLE_ARMOR code which looks the same except name - it seems other armors have such entry but megascorpion one was missing?
Note I only quickly checked if there is crash - can't say right now if game will not crash later

I made a small mod including the fix to the MEGASCORPION_ARMOR research that should prevent the crash. You can use it if you don't want to mess around with file editing.
