It seems to be an engine issue, array index out of bounds... crashes only when it touches some memory it is not allowed to touch.

It's not a new issue, I've seen it several times this year... don't know what's causing it.
I reported to Yankes.

Cannot start the game at all, the program throws me an error about:
[INFO]   Loading rulesets...
[ERROR]   Const name 'RuleList.xcom1' already used

What am I doing wrong?

I think the Confederate Eagle has the wrong floor graphic:

Still J6B, haven't got to the end of the month to upgrade yet, so sorry if this has been adressed.

Here is a quick Bugfix ruleset:

It addresses:
 - a manufacturing glitch for Contraband
 - Savage outfit morale degen should be -8 not -80

To use: Replace your \Dioxine_XPiratez\user\mods\Piratez\Ruleset\Piratez.rul ruleset from your 99J7 build with the one attached to this post.

Did it work before the update? Have you tried a clean "install" (delete everything, unpack the downloaded archive, move UFO/TFTD stuff into the correct folder)?

Thanks, this and a couple other pistols had floor object 375 instead of 376 :)

I think i have a problem in my game with space freighters not showing up at all.  The only significant research i think i'm missing is a "belter" and i suspect thats an enemy on that freighter mission. I also updated the version several times during this campaign, so that could be the issue. Might be RNG, but i am waiting for quite some time now and could buy the planet from the space governor by now. It would be an offer he can't refuse.

It has only a 15% chance to spawn in any given month. In my game it took over a year after the research for it to appear.

Correct.

Didn't stop it from appearing in my game. ;)

Well yes, it worked before the last update perfectly. Thankfully, what you suggested works. Yay!

1. I can't dig in enemy base. Brown dirt blocks are indestructible. Tested by 2 gals in swiftsuits with pickaxes for about 10 turns. About 110-120 attempts, not a single success.   

2. Testudo armor has two different appearances.

Dunno about the enemy base blocks, but the testudo is functioning as crafted, these are sprite graphics and as such have separate graphics images for each directional facing. I imagine the difference comes from having to squish the original source to fit in the constraints allowed by the engine.

I've just started a new game on 0.99j7 and came across this odd event.

When I went to a Church mission - Temple of Sirius - the one where you start without your ship, I was supprised to start with my ship, even though the breafing says you always start on foot.

I made a save of this, and then reloaded - same result.  I then tried several more times, aproximitly half started with the ship and half on foot.

included the mission save and a geoscape from just before the mission.


Any idea what's up?

No idea about 1. (Which base?) but 2. is the result of having male and female torso, and the armor lacking a commnad to force the former no matter soldier's (internal) gender.

Already reported and fixed, thanx

Doesn't forceTorso: 1 work here?
(Or was it forcedTorso?)

Yeah that was the flag that was lacking, obviously. I just wrote that.
