I'll try to save before intercepting and see if I can reproduce it! That would be a good bug to squash...

I don't know if I am the only one suffering from this, but my interception icons are messed up. The little drawing of my craft fills with red much faster than my craft actually gets damaged, which makes interceptions very difficult to gauge.
Wait this isn't some sort of deliberate design choice? I thought it came with the mod I don't think I've seen a single interception without it.

With 98E plus Meridian's latest (for enjoying performance and view range improvements), I seem not to be able to re-research the Osiron Security and Reticulan Peon I recently captured. Something I'm overlooking/messed up, or a bug?

The 2 captives you mention do not have multiple tech unlocks. As far as i can tell you have already expended all avenues of research from them.

Airbus is not allowed to go to that mission.
Take a different craft.

Ack. Does it say so in the ufopaedia? I have to check...

<sigh> "For getaway, we need a fast enough and not too heavy a ship. "
So I basically bought and kept that Airbus all those years for nothing....  :'(

Anyway, The missing STR, is that a bug or am is it caused by the new (viewrange+) exe?
Where do I get a new craft that fast.... I do not want to reequip my Deliverator (the main craft I am using atm)

Code: [Select]
      STR_STARTING_CONDITION_CRAFT: "The ship is no good for a mission like that, cap'n."

Well, Airbus is stealthy by the way how it's mundane, and not THAT slow, so I think I'll allow it for the mission. I just haven't thought of it Well not, too slow, and too early a craft :) For now, buy a Pachyderm, it does fit :)

Did that. Luckily it has a short delivery time.  :)

Btw, there are some strange things in the Battle Generator:

1. There is a part of some strange clickable field/button showing at the left corner of the Battle generator. It seems to have no function.
2. STR_CRACKDOWN_LESSER is listed in the missions but has no STR obviously.

Assuming it's a bug.
Soldier can berserk shoot while both hands full with a weapon that normally requires you to have an off hand free in order for it to be used.

In the example save the soldier goes berserk and offloads quarter of a magazine of Bossar while having a zapper equipped in the other hand.

Not a bug persay just how the game handles berserk. Its always acted like that. Berserk just has the unit fire or swing with whatever is in main hand(if anything) then tries left hand with 250% TU. Result of very simple if x then y coding.
