Some more typos:

Quote
Greetings, Commander, on behalf of MAGMA Corporation.

Quote
case MAGMA stumbles upon

MAGMA is wrote everywhere with points between the letters, but in those cases they're absent for some reason.

Quote
defending our planet from otherwordly things XCOM

Should be "otherworldly", I think.

Quote
Commnader, the M.A.G.M.A. Corporation is very satisfied

Quote
Hybrid spies Infiltrate

Is there any meaning in writing the word "Infiltrate" with a capital "I"?

Quote
jest of pressurized, highly active chemicals

Quote
inocuous planes

Quote
However, our enemies got their first.

Quote
You can exaine them

Quote
but purchasing some of them will require additional arrangments.

I just noticed while reading a LP of your mod that started with the version prior to your budget cut balance change and they started with 3 million income, just started another game with the current version and noticed I also have 3 million income at start. I remembered this when the LP'er manually cut his income by 2/3 to better emulate the current version.

Thanks for bringing my attention to this. According to my calculations, your initial funding should be between $690 000 and $1 380 000... But it doesn't work.
I'll fiddle with this.

A new set of typos:

Quote
STR_COMMENDATIONS_UC: "CONMMENDATIONS"

Quote
our agents should appproach them with utmost care

Quote
Not enough living space to accomodate

Quote
DEATILS: Miller and Smith are mid-ranking officers

Quote
DEATILS: Born in the upper class of Texas oil moguls

Quote
hideout deep in the bowles of the city

Quote
albait rather simple in reasoning

Quote
that this is creature is related to normal Earth life forms

There's also a discrepancy in the dossiers block: in the first ones the lines are sorted like this: name - affiliation - role, but then the order is changed - the affiliation and the role switched their positions.

And I also have some questions about the contents of the mod.

STR_STAFF_001_UFOPEDIA - who's saying this - a man or a woman? I couldn't understand looking at the picture.

TRSh Close Combat Weapon - can you expand the acronym if it has any meaning?

Consistent Damage - you meant stable, independent of an armor or significant?

There is no such thing as a free beating - I'm not really sure if I understood well but I think you meant one can't pound a person without getting any consequences. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

VOO: "PST", DOO: "PSK" - can you expand these lines?

Tanks for the typos. I have too much writing to do to do it properly myself... :/

STR_STAFF_001_UFOPEDIA - who's saying this - a man or a woman? I couldn't understand looking at the picture.

It's a woman. I guess she could use a bit more work...

TRSh Close Combat Weapon - can you expand the acronym if it has any meaning?

No special meaning; probably comes from the name of its designer. It's only there so that the name "Thrasher" could be derived from it. :P I wanted to put the "Thrasher" in there, because that's how that shotgun was called by the author of its original sprite on zDoom forums. But if you think it doesn't sound convincing, I can revise it.

Consistent Damage - you meant stable, independent of an armor or significant?

I need to make an article about this.
Consistent damage means that the weapon uses Gaussian formula instead of the normal roll; so average rolls are much more frequent.

There is no such thing as a free beating - I'm not really sure if I understood well but I think you meant one can't pound a person without getting any consequences. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

It's a play on the "no such thing as a free dinner" stock phrase. Open for interpretation. :P

VOO: "PST", DOO: "PSK" - can you expand these lines?

Psionic Strength, Psionic Skill. I had to abbreviate them to three letters, so...

I understand it very well looking at my translations after a while.  But it's an opensource project, and we are all here to help each other.

Ok :). I thought so but it should definitely be more evident.

Quote

Well, what confused me was this line "popular name: Thrasher". If there's a popular name then there should exist an official name which usually is quite unspeakable and ugly looking. At least I used to think so :).

I can only agree with this - it's definitely needed.

Quote

Ok, understood. I'll think about the translation.

Well, I found the source of the phrase but not really sure about the meaning of the word "beating" in the context. The dictionaries translate it as "whipping" and at the same time as "defeat". That's why I was asking. I think you meant the first meaning of the word :).

Quote

Ah, of course, my bad. Thanks for the explanation!

And one more thing - is there any expansion in the acronym M.A.G.M.A.?

Yeah, that's the idea... Though I'm open to suggestions.

Definitely so :)

No, there's none - at least to my knowledge. It's a shout out to the Alien Shooter/Zombie Shooter series (made by SIGMA Team, also located in Novosibirsk).

Hey bro, just updated to newest version, and noticed that there's a bunch of screenshots and saves where I was going to put mine. Just to let you know.

Happens with me too, sometimes I forget my own saves. That's why I always make multiple folder copies, heh.

Oh shit. I forgot to delete what should be deleted.

I'll post a new version.

There shouldn't be, but I fiddled with the tech tree recently (added the Minebea SMG, which also uses Uzi clips), so something may have happened with an older save. Won't be a problem - start the project, don't assign any scientists, wait until midnight.

I will take a look at it, then.
Btw, should Minebea research be complete in a day? Quite quick!

Yes, you get it as a bonus for researching Kiryu-Kai. Honestly I'd make it cost 0, but it causes weird behaviour, so it costs like 1 or 2 points.

Sorry if this have been reported before, I made a search and it seems like not.

My game crash everytime I use auto sort (Z shorcut in inventory). The log say nothing. I´m usign 0.5.2b, with the OXCE+ provided. The game log say nothing, just a standard segmentation fault. I leave the savegame attached.

BTW, how can I make the log more verbose?

Spoiler:
11-01-2017_15-32-35]   [FATAL]   A fatal error has occurred: Segmentation fault. This usually indicates something missing in a mod.
