That's a very interesting piece of information. I regret to admit I have never heard of Maracaibo before.

I'm not sure what change you mean, I can't recall any changes in the code... I only pointed out that longitude 2307 doesn't exist, since it only goes up to 360, so I assumed it was a typo of some kind.

Wow, I return and see a discussion about the location of my hometown  ;D

Yeah, to be honest too much work... Not only with the graphics, but also with complete rearranging the layer system. But some sort of alternative would be nice.
To be honest it never occurred to me that someone would middle-click on their own units. Why would I ever do that? :)

I can make two different backgrounds, one for units with a geoscape soldier and one for units without a geoscape soldier. Then you can change one of them to have more black where needed.

That would be great, thank you.

Indeed we are doomed... So none of you will need your earthly possessions anymore. Therefore, feel free to send all this useless burden to me, so I could dispose of it in a responsible manner.

You can now use sprite "AlienInventory2" for soldiers.
If not defined, it falls back to current background.

Had a mission where medical item consumption was not stored in the save. Used a medkit and saved. Upon reloading the medkit was full again.

I'm afraid that's beyond my expertise, but maybe devs can check it out.

Just had a chtonite minibase assault which got me 174 units of 'alien gardens' - is this intended? As far as i can tell alien gardens aren't actually used for anything manufacturing wise. Might i suggest turning down the recovery rate?

EDIT:
This room in the cyberweb bases still lacks traversable ladders, leading to your agents getting trapped in it.

174 is a lot, but I'm not sure if it's too much. I can decrease the amount, yeah.
And that trap is known... I'm not sure if I want to fix it ;)

Fair enough.

BTW, the Syndicate building still has rooms that lack doors:


Also, might i suggest removing the Dragonfly from the allowed crafts list for inifiltration missions? I just don't see how turning up in something that looks like a friggin' gunship would help your agents with the whole undercover thing.


EDIT:
Not sure if this is intended, but there seems to be something wrong with the upper floors. Namely that you can fall through them:



EDIT #2:

My MAGMA zombie lab mission somehow spawned with a hybrid control assault:

    region: REGION_MAGMA_LAB
    race: STR_HYBRID_SECTOID
    nextWave: 0
    nextUfoCounter: 0
    spawnCountdown: 152
    liveUfos: 0
    uniqueID: 605
    missionSiteZone: 1

    deployment: STR_MAGMA_LAB
    texture: -1100
    secondsRemaining: 275400

    detected: true

As far as i can tell you've defined a region for the hybrid control assault mission, but there is no region assigned to the mission in the missionscripts.rul - replacing 'REGION_MAGMA_LAB' with 'REGION_HYBRID_CONTROL' in my save spawns the correct mission, but i'd really like to know why the region defaults to MAGMA_LAB in the first place.

BTW hybridBase and hybridmeeting are also missing regions.

Also, the  marker name assigned to STR_HYBRID_CONTROL_ASSAULT is STR_REPTOID_BASE - is this intended?
