Yeah, the Courier has its own description page, so why not the Almanach?

I've gotten a crash when capturing unconscious giant spiders in a monster hunt mission, and a STR string on capturing live mutant fish that mentioned something to the tune of no alien containment. I dont have the saves but i'll keep an eye out for the next hunting mission/sea adventure. First time i've had a crash using this mod!

PS: typo in "Soldier: Female Uber" pedia first word in forth line "iterrogating" should be "interrogating"

I researched a bounty hunting missions thing a while ago and it said that I'd get missions graded from A to C or something within the next few months. Haven't seen any.

Haven't gotten any underwater missions. Do I need to shoot down UFOs over water to get these?

The bounty hunting arc is still only a rump. Currently it only gives access to underwater missions. As for them not happening... They work in tests, so must be bad luck. I've messed around a bit with it in the update, but I won't release it until the new camo engine is properly tested, I think.

I may have interpreted the code incorrectly, but I think we have a bigger problem than camo: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,4822.msg73841.html#msg73841

Wonky or not, at least its bugs are beneficial in equal amount to player and AI, so while it might be an engine problem, it's not a serious gameplay problem... At least I hope so. I will make some more tests.

I will publish a workaround today.
Yankes' visibility scripts won't work properly anymore (they actually don't really work 100% now either because of psi vision), but I think you're not using them atm.

Also ohartenstein's dogfight stuff will be in.

It never Ends. I wish, I had the energy to do some real modding, but alas...

But if you want me to write some flavour texts again, I could do that!

typo:
Code: [Select]
STR_DART_PISTOL_UFOPEDIA ... [BUTY] -> [BUY]; SKIL: -> Skill:
Minor inconsistency:
Code: [Select]
new armors have: Melee Dodge: REACTIONS*30%
old ones: Melee Dodge %: REACTIONS*0.3

Thx for nerfing the flechette gun, never thought I could convince you to take actions that quickly. Thanks skipper!

I found out something nasty with the new ship "Scorpion".
The cockpit spawnpoint (using the 6th soldier slot) is a dead end. There is no door and the elevator-platform doesn't work. I tried to use a flying outfit but every soldier is just *stuck* inside the cockpit for the entire mission.

I know that this ship is designed for dogfights but it's a 6man dropship for the early game after all.

Thx for the zombie-hordes btw :D

Either it's an artifact from updating and old .sav or something is missing.

No Savegame, but a Crash at Geoscape while trying to advance time...  Been playing less than 30 mins...

Hope I'm attaching the right file.


I'll see if its replicatable from Autosave...  But was just random - not even end of month or anything, so possibly research or mission spawn related...


EDIT:

Yep, Advancing on 1 day into the 23rd and just Crashes out...    So Savegame attached !...


EDIT2:

Dicking around with the Research (dropped Hoe to 0, increased Survival to 2) got me right through...  As did doing the *opposite*...  So regardless, its not fatal, I can move on, and I have no real clue as to what it could be... 

Apologies for not much useful advice!

@Zharkov

No typo, just new stat-strings and rule-sets for the growing techtree.

Usually those can only be seen if someone upgrades his current game.
New Games don't show those strings.
