Osiron Yeoma:

Not sure if this is a bug, or intended.  I was working up the new Bootypedia page for these guys, and thought the Choking/Smoke resistance of "0" isn't really in keeping with their non-masked/non-helmeted appearance. 

https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Osiron_Yeoman_%28Piratez%29


Edit:  I also noticed that the Ufopedia text for the Tank/Autocannon may be incorrect for the aux gun.  The Piratez_lang.rul entry gives:  (line 2702)
{NEWLINE}Aux Gun: 55 Pwr, x4 Long-Range Autoshot, 60% Acc, 30% TUs"

which is equivalent to the AUX_TANK_HMG weapon from the Piratez.rul (line 2164)  (I think this only is on the Cyberdisk)

However, the builtin weapon in that tank's entry is the AUX_TANK_MG (Line 2141) 
so the Bootypedia should read as follows:
Aux Gun: 36 Pwr, x4 Long-Range Autoshot, 50% Acc, 25% TUs


Edit #2:
Tanks vary widely in Melee skill: ( many 70, some 7)
Lines :
Spoiler:
23446
23469
23492
23515
23536
Hovertanks (70 &60)

Edit #3. Manufacturing the Gatling Laser Tank.  Shouldn't it require scrap metal too?  Line 32988

Looks like it's actually normal when upgrading a save - mission scripts go haywire. In all probability you've fallen victim to that.

Hi Dioxine, loving the mod - it's amazing what's been done with xcom (and Meridians changes too!). I've ended up with the same issue as the person who brought this up - crash on arrival at Siberian base. As it's my first play through I'm unsure about the importance of this mission - will there be negative effects from leaving it unactioned? Will it block completion of the game? (I assumed it was a faction base mission, and I've already completed one Academy Base mission).

Just trying to decide if I should continue as is or switch back to 0.98B. Thanks!

This puzzles me.. wouldn't it be possible to rewrite the alienMission entry for that mission so that the proper mission (for 0.98C) spawns?

You can conclude the game without the Siberia run but you miss out on fairly hefty portion of the mid game laser tech as well as several craft weapons. You also miss out on a few of the plasma heavy weapons.

Same here, CTD on attempting the Siberia Base mission (2nd time it appears, didn't know it disappeared the first time...)

Save attached.

Same issue with Siberia. Maybe another save helps?

Just noting - does the fix apply to the Siberia base (Russian Files) or the Siberia Mansion? I am able to attempt the mansion in battle mode but not game mode.

The german name of the "Magischen Motors" called correct "Magischer Motor" or you mean only multiple "Parts of the Magischen Motors" Also the name of Hanebu is correct "Haunebu"
Nazi UFOs have a great story potential but not only as flying swastika, the traditional form is a bell, only with runes! ::)

Motors is plural so its more or less magische Motors or Die magischen motors/The magischen motors.

--

Could it be that savior armor is called healer and ghost is called stealth in manufactory screen?

Wenn you mean plural, many roll off the assembly line, you must say "Die Magischen Motoren" A single engine is "Der Magische Motor" and when it explodes, you have "Parts of the Magischen Motors" in german, not english. ;)

Ah now I get it.
You think he means one motor.
Yeah ok. Then I agree
