- Upon researching Old Earth Books for the first time, a message appears saying "We can now research Old Earth Books".oarded-up version.

Could the "get one free" volumes be called something different: "Old Earth Encylclopedias" ?

They cannot, really, since it's simply Old Earth Books (item) having a Get One Free list.

Gals can extract tips on military tactics even from Twilight.

Thanks.  I wasn't sure how it worked.

Confirming that the Shambler Loftemps for melee is still buggy.

I have Swagging Thug with a Tech Blade able to swing 5 times at 99%.  All are misses.  When reloading and trying other aspects, the only direction from which I was able to hit was the rear.  Three swings did down it from this side though.

Shambler was lifted from XCOMFiles. I have killed it in melee many times, but indeed it has strange loftemps. I'll reset them to normal.

Homing RPG exists in game data, and even have appropriate research topics, but unobtainable.
It can not be bought or produced and it's not present in loot enemy equipment tables.

This terrain looks wierd. It seems as if the tiles are floating in the air.

 :o looks like a case of map tile edge mismatch. Some map structures take more then one tile to create. This happens most often on the slum tileset but there it's less noticeable due to general dilapidation.

From what i can tell it looks like part of a cave got cut off.

Though with the rocks like that map data corruption is also a possibility.

Pretty sure that's just a map tile. I've seen it lots of times on desert maps.

Never had a problem with the game crashing before, first post ever. Also after activating debug mode I think I should just abort this mission anyway LOL

The culprit seems to be this Osiron soldier during hidden movement. I am playing on plunder me mode so the save is at the beginning of the mission, but it only takes two turns to crash. Also, can't upload the .dmp file?

Hi pacotaco, welcome to the forum!

This is the same issue as reported already before few days ago. There is a map node with negative Z coordinate (probably in DESERT13.RMP).
This will be fixed in the next piratez release.

In the meantime, since you know how to turn on debug mode, I suggest to cheat a little and kill all aliens (Ctrl+K).
Or just abort the mission before it crashes.

Or slightly less cheaty, killing just the offending orison should allow for play to continue. The faulty nodes are relatively few and the battlefield has to be just so to trigger the crash. Killing off a few foes and/or moving in a different way is sufficient to prevent that instance of a crash.

Given my skill level and loadout of my crew I think only the first option is feasible. I ended up aborting and now the game has aborted me. This game is tough! Thanks for the help, I hope that gets fixed soon!
