Does this also fix the bug where firing while berserk could shoot outside of your maximum weapon range?

No.

Commendation Bonuses
Commendations give various bonuses to units, for example Wrestler increases Strength (+1 per skull) and Nightingale increases night vision (+1 per skull colour). This would give the commendations some actual meaning, allow for advancement of units who are maxed out, and also help personalize units further.

When you have some time, could you write what kind of bonuses would you like for each award?
Just to help me mentally prepare for the complexity (or lack of it).

Gladly!

Here's a list of suggestions - for the current commendations and some potential new ones, too. (Co-produced with Dioxine.)

Two questions about heatvision

1) Since night vision is already visually represented by a green palette across the screen, is heatvision also represented by an orange palette?

2) Also, given that heat vision detects heat, shouldn't it be able to detect invisible units (at least units without any special countermeasures, such as catgirls)?

Is it? Everything looks normal to me. How do you see in green?

I'd suggest HUGE bonuses for the missing in action and the going out in a blaze of glory commendations... to be removed or at least changed when we finally get the ability to upload our gal's brains and clone new bodies.

Once Hell is ready as a mission region, we might be getting our dead girls back. :P

Get the "Devil's Coins" and use them + a cloning machine to revive one girl? That'd be AWESOME :D

Mostly it's an excuse to troll the player.  But if/when we get effective cloning tech and mind uploading, bringing back dead heroes for rum and brawling becomes a thing.

I figure it's been long enough to justify a second post.

How hard would it be to allow swimming? basically just walking into water, if the water is supposed to be extremely cold ending the turn in it would cause stun, possibly a lot, if you kneel in water, basically diving, you take stun at the end of the turn.  Visibility would probably go down, more so if you dive, but you'd be pretty hard to find both ways.  Suits that would logically be heated could be immune to the cold damage, and those that have an air supply could be immune to the diving damage.  Mostly it just seems odd that the gals can't swim in shallow water.

The whole way maps are constructed makes it really hard to pull off. Not even mentioning you'd need to add underground levels to all maps with water... Ugh, just no. Swimming can be simulated (see swimming pool facility), but a special map is needed for that.

Your idea Khade also seems to touch the "tile causes damage" idea, which is a valid and potentially useful thing.
