Some thoughts on gambling:
If you sell the coupons, money return is about 5x to 10x what you pay. --> never sell the $1000 blue chips, gamble them all.
If you keep the coupons, money return is on average a little more than you put in.
If you have a mint and can make the blue chips, profit skyrockets with gambling.
--> adjust the sell value of the coupons, perhaps?

To claim the coupons, you need casino researched, which requires activities: commercial, which requires the flight plans from a heavy freighter.
If you can take on a heavy freighter, nearly everything you can get from the lower tier coupons is worthless, which is a shame.
Right now it's best to just sell the lower tier coupons right away.


Suggestions:
Make lower tier coupons claimable with lower tech, when the items you could get would actually be useful. Outfits and culture tech is required to get into (higher class) casinos in town, where the coupons can be reclaimed. For example sailor outfit enables the copper coupons reclaim, persuasion the next tier, then seductress outfit one more tier.
Alternatively, casino tickets (item drops, from sharp guy for example) allow to reclaim one coupon per ticket.
Or combine the two - fancy outfit for lower/mid tier, fancy outfit + fancy casino ticket for high tier.


Also: Is it intentional that the corridor provides base functionality [CAS, GAMB] ?

Hi, 2 questions today. 1, is it intentional to get to where my loknar is in this save? (my tablet hates screenshots.) And two, is the loknar cache supposed to be no night vision? I'm asking cause I couldn't see crap in that cave! usually have on automatic night vision cause I can't get it to work otherwise

Oh, also, found an amazon outfit without having gold codex. Is that intended?

Amazon has been part of the loot in certain missions for some time now. But if that still intended is a good question.

One of the best outfits for archers and hit-&-run melee-specialists.
It's "okay" to have one around but with 20armor across the board it's far from game-breaking to get some for free.

Looting a random tac-vest just feels better in comparision.

Just some text errors. UAC Rifle Aqua clip is listed as a regular UAC Rifle Clip on the build screen, and Mansion Robberies say that they have a 32 turn time limit on the briefing screen, but they actually have a 36 turn time limit (not that I'm complaining about that last one).

Anyone had any issues installing J13a? It just plays UFO's opening, then crashes with a segmentation fault and the log doesn't contain anything useful beyond a few [WARN]s that some optional mods have been disabled because they have dependencies on xcom2. Does X-Piratez require the TFTD data files now as well as UFO's due to the underwater missions? The installation instructions didn't indicate anything new was required, and .99f4 still works fine on my machine. (Yeah, I've been gone a while)

Edit:
Nope, it wasn't the TFTD files.

If this error was unexpected, please report it to the developers.

Doesn't really tell me anything. Does that make sense to anyone else?


RESOLVED - New bug report:

Something is missing/wrong with the included options.cfg. The game just tries to boot UFO and then crashes. Copying the one from 99f4 caused J13a to boot without issue.

Edit:
The Geoscape button text is all garbled. Everything else is fine, it's on en-us.

Actually, changing the language setting doesn't appear to do anything at all. en-uk, still garbled, all other text still normal. ru, all text is still English, Geoscape buttons still gibberish. Russian patch is not enabled, just checked that.


All this is on a 100% clean install and a brand new campaign. Perhaps something went missing at some point and people upgrading their games mid campaign have been unintentionally providing previous versions of some files?

It's right next to the crashlog in the user folder. I assumed it was included intentionally to set X-Piratez as the default game mode and preset the extended options. As far as I recall it's been there as far back as version .97.

the options file is not included in the package, it is however generated as part of startup if one does not already exist. The default generation could be flawed thou, perhaps retaining options that no longer exist(options cleanup happened recently), or pathways that are no longer valid(common and standard folder now operate as compressed zips.)

Perhaps so. But curiously the surely equally outdated one generated back in F4 corrects whatever the issue is with generating a new one. Perhaps that has something to do with the Geoscape buttons being wonky. I understand they got some sort of a graphical facelift, and something is presumably not pointing them towards the data they're looking for.

I have a hybrid with the sea version of an armor, on a surface mission.

Everyone else is fine.

I can't use my Gatling Cyberdiscs.
When I want to load them onto a transport it says that I need the ammo. Which I have. Popup has another name for it though, maybe that is the problem?
I can't build a non advanced clip either.

They don't show up in base defence missions either, which are why I built them in the first place.

Edit: Ok, so the non advanced ammo works. I can't produce it yet, as I am lacking a power plant.
Just changing the compatible armor in piratez.rul to the same as the laser car armor isn't enough, it seems.
