First off, thank you Dioxine for this wonderful mod. I'm enjoying it immensely and look forward to all the new content being developed. :)

Are any modifications necessary to take a save file from 0.99G.1 to 0.99G.2? Do the new missions need to be added to the list in the file? Thanks!

Thanks a lot. And no, if there is nothing posted here, then it means nothing is needed.

Before upgrading from 99H1 to H2, use or lose your cannon magazines (the craft loot). Also, don't forget to disable Naughty Mod if you're using it (it has been merged into the main mod).

Paraphrased from Ivan's post over in the download thread:

Before/after upgrading to I1, change any STR_ALIEN_CONTAINMENT to STR_JAIL in your .sav file.

Dioxine, feel free to correct if this is in error, but my jails became Cryo Prisons when I upgraded.

Yeah they did. But this isn't detrimental to the player, so there was no need to mention it from my side.

If you have a cryoprison, Upgrading from 99I1 to 99I2:

In your save file:
under your base (name) and its facilities:
replace STR_ALIEN_CONTAINMENT with STR_CRYO_PRISON in the save file.

ie:
Code: [Select]
      - x: 1
        disabled: false
        type: STR_ALIEN_CONTAINMENT
        y: 4
        hadPreviousFacility: false

becomes
Code: [Select]
      - x: 1
        disabled: false
        type: STR_CRYO_PRISON
        y: 4
        hadPreviousFacility: false

if you try to edit a save after the upgrade you may need to paste this in as that facility entry was expunged in my base when the game loaded.

After upgrading from 99I1 to 99I2, equipping .6g buckshot to the sawd-off is no longer an option.
Wondering if that's intended.

On upgrade to 0.99J, the following prisoners will transform:
Marsec Operatives into Guild Navigators
Marsec Bodyguards into Guild Medics

It is advised to sell or otherwise utilize them before updating to keep normal game experience.

Save edits are in fact sometimes required to not break a save with some updates. When it is needed this is the thread where the relevant instructions can be found.

Ah, right. Upgrade just before the end of the month, if possible.

What are the missions that could break the game? Church ships were mentioned somewhere. I assume if none of these missions are active in my save then I can upgrade right away.

Is it possible and not too much trouble to give a list?
