OXCE+ adds an additional 10 damage types beyond the original for modders to use so that they don't have to replace another type. Are you playing X-Com Files? There, electric is one of the additional damage types, used for things like tasers and stun batons.

I have the original + (OXCE +). There are 10 types of demag there and initially. I thought Electricity was 11 or 1 (which is not used), but apparently I made a mistake.

There are 10 new types with ID: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19.

Someone renamed one of them to "Electric" in one of the mods... but you can call them however you want.

Summary: OpenXcom has 10 damage types, OXCE+ has 20 damage types

Strange this mode of night vision ... No, I would understand if there was an option "nightVision" in the armor and it activated the night vision mode for a separate (possessing this ability) unit. And so ... I do not even know how to use it without cheating.

The missing strings are provided as a mod just a few lines below.
(A few are missing, I am updating that mod less frequently than the EXE)

Hello again.
Small bugreport about TFTD:
First, thank you very much for your work.
Second, manufacturing menu uses almost invisible black color to write nev items names.
Third, i got suspicious situation with message about "airborne interception" when uso and interceptor both definetly was over the sea. Perhaps depth and hight parameters misplaced?

Also, looking at allowedItemCategories, i wonder: is there any way to create surface-only weapons, other than add startingconditions to ALL underwater missions?

Will be fixed/configurable in the future.

Save pls.

Not sure I understand the question.
You can create surface-only weapons category by flagging the relevant items, and then add such starting condition to surface-only missions.

And in all other missions (without that condition) this item will be unavailable?

Upd: about airborne interception - i am sorry, it is my mistake.

No, if you want that too, you'll have to create underwater-only category and assign it to all underwater-only missions.
