Nice to see that we finally get an option to put out fires (or burning agents, or aliens...or civilians). Have you thought about adding a one-use option like a fire blanket?

It's certainly doable, but seems rather superfluous.

BTW, since we already have a large storage facility and large living quarters - any plans to add a large workshop in the future?

Maybe, why not. But it's not exactly a priority right now.

I can't see the damage type, for example, with the tazer i see damage type "11" instead of "stun"
What could be the problem here bois?

Most likely your language is set as en-GB instead of en-US.

Thank you!
This modification I like more and more!  ;)

Thank you! :)

Aaaargh, time to update AGAIN.

Hey, this one took me ages! :P

The translation is not very consistent. In a few simple words can you tell me what you mean by "processing".
It seems the prisoners are turning into armor?  :-[

Processing prisoners means processing prisoners: checks, interrogation, cataloguing their belongings and sending them off to an appropriate institution. But yes, sometimes it means you get to keep some of their stuff.

@ Rich
In my case my game is set to be in French. So it's not possible for me to set it to "en-US"!
But it's easy to fix this problem!  ;)
In the "\common\Language\OXCE" folder, open (with the Windows notepad) the file of your language (fr.yml for me).
At the end of the file add or modify the lines to have :
  STR_DAMAGE_10: "EMP"
  STR_DAMAGE_11: "ELECTRIC"
  STR_DAMAGE_12: "PSI"
  STR_DAMAGE_13: "WARP"
  STR_DAMAGE_14: "E-115"
  STR_DAMAGE_15: "15"
  STR_DAMAGE_16: "16"
  STR_DAMAGE_17: "17"
  STR_DAMAGE_18: "18"
  STR_DAMAGE_19: "19"

It works great in my game!  ;)

Thanks for the info! Still, english is not my first language so US or UK (at least for me) is basically the same lol
Still good to know, thank you very much!

Is this mod playable on android port with oxce+?

I mean, is it possible to play without keyboard and only with touchscreen?

Well, as far as I know the only useful key is spacebar for night vision so you will probably will not need keyboad at all ::)

Hey, this one took me ages! :P

But for me, it was Tuesdaymerely a week :P

Whatever. The addition of fire extinguisher somewhat answered a question I would like to ask - I was so happy to get my hands on agricultural flamer... until I found my team nearly in a middle of the forest fire  ;D

Got Ski Resort mission today. The description said that I can take only sporting gear but some experimentation showed that besides Sporting Rifles this includes almost every melee weapon (except Axe, Billhook and Electric Club), Throwing Knives and even Crossbows (that were the way more useful for this mission than Sporting Rifles). Take a note, folks ;D

Yet another matter: never EVER hunt chupacabras in a farm village without shotguns! 8)

Hmm... They shouldn't do that :P


EDIT: Yeah, it appears the AI still uses the fastest weapon, even if one of these weapons is unarmed... One option would be to make unarmed attacks slow, but considering the slowest weapons are easily 30 TU per attack, this isn't really viable.

I have quickly prepared a save for testing.

Im a little embarrassed that I have to keep asking for advice but here it is. How in the world do you deal with etherals? I have literally only killed one once. It took a large rocket and 3-4 turns of two guys with black ops miniguns blasting it to kill it. And the whole time the psionics wrecked my team, I cant take on a alien base if any etherals are there, 3/4 of my team are mindcontrolled or panicked by the 2nd turn.

Do they have any weaknesses? I mean maybe I just need to research more of my own psi stuff for defense but Ill need to do it soon or x-com is toast.

btw is this the right place to ask this? if it isnt sorry, I can go to another thread if need be

Sounds like,
1: your example has you using a not particularly appropriate set of weapons. The key to defeating shields is throughput since they regen. Lots of low dmg shots with poor accuracy(miniguns) have a hard time dealing with shields.  Single shot high TU cost weapons won't have the damage by themselves, usually. Accurate fast firing rifles, and shotguns are the best choice. Once your past the shield etherals are pretty frail, low armor and only middling hp.

2: Defense against psi relies on your own agents Psi strength and to a lesser extent psi skill. Screen for good Psi Str when you able to. Psi Panic attacks can be mitigated by good bravery and the presence of high rank agents. Mind control effects can be mitigated by keeping your agents out of line of sight of each other. You can also have agents drop there weapons at the end of the turn so at most they just try and fisticuffs there fellows which is far less deadly then your best weapons by the time ethereals are around.

Really sorry to bother again bois, but... Are throwing knives supposed to do 0 damage?
I mean, no bonuses from throwing and such? If so i can't see them and don't know why   :-X
I've attached a screenshot of the ufopedia page...

Thanks again for the help and great mod, i'm loving it! Even if it's pretty unforgiving  :-X

Edit: maybe i'm dumb, but am i supposed to have the info tab? I can see the bonuses in there but... maybe i shouldn't see that button?

As car as I know the ES translation (of any type) has only started, so unfortunately you can only use English or Russian for now.
As for the item order, yes, they are grouped by type on all lists, plus you can filter them.
Gracias, Thanks

The link in the first post is the up to date version. And usually an update does not break saves.
