You can send dog in cybersuit on mission in Dimension X, when the regular agent in cyber armor can't go.

Edit : For underwater missions, you can use the armor (It is showing as a allowed outfit) but you cannot send dogs in underwater.
Also, why the warning in ufopedia in Underwater Operations if dogs aren't allowed ?

I was overzealous. Now fixed.

Hey I apply the mods and when I try to start a new game it crashes. I know absolutely nothing about coding just saying. I'm pretty sure there's something wrong on my end, not with the mod. Here's the log. Thank You!!

Nobody else has this issue, so something must be wrong with your installation. Purge everything and reinstall , that's all I can advise.

BO assault LMG apparently does not fall under MG license...
Not that its that bad...
But since its literally in the name, it probably should...

It's basically a heavy rifle, so while I agree that it's confusing, I am not convinced that it should require the machine guns licence.

New dogs seem to have worked for Santa before.

Not all dogs have pink noses, but OMG, some do. I'll make more colour variants at some point.

Found a missing entry in ufopedia (in v1.3) : STR_SHARE_ALIEN_GARDENS_TECH_UFOPEDIA.

STR_SHARE_ALIEN_GARDENS_TECH_TECH_UFOPEDIA has the expected text.

Indeed, thanks. Fixed it yesterday.

Bugfix release very soon (with some new extra stuff).

The bugfix patch needs some fixing, ironically enough. The Sawed-Off shotgun is missing the "shotgun" part in the name, which can cause some minor confusion, and apparently cannot be bought from the get go, it requires finding one somewhere in order to research it, despite being such a simple weapon.
Moreover, it is incorrectly placed in the bottom part of the Field Equipment section, instead of together with other shotguns and similar guns.
Lastly, the Shrapnel Rocket with alien alloys is missing a proper description, as it is displayed as STR_SHRAPNEL ROCKETS ingame.

This is pre-patch, but this save file has a Chtonite mini-base with multiple inaccessible pockets. I've just broken into one with a heavy sonic cannon, the other one has the two remaining Chtonites in it.

Irrelevant, but I just gotta take a moment to say that I adore many, many things about that beautiful, sexy piece of pure Earthican engineering, but my favourite part is how it turns intervening obstacles into just more of an opinion, really.

I also recently (1.3, pre-patch) had an Osiron warehouse mission spawn without an Osiron warehouse (meaning no crates after battle) and a Jarhead bank robbery (1.2) on a map with no bank (still got the million dollar bonus, though). In both cases the level ended up being built around that L-shaped two-story motel. Is that supposed to be possible?

missing string
To be precise, that's the constant: STR_TRITANIUM_SHRAPNEL_ROCKET
But I wonder if it's not confused with the constant: STR_ALLOY_SHRAPNEL_ROCKET which is missing from item files!  :-\

In v1.3 with OXCE 6.4.2, I have spitter armed with acid pistols and disruptor rifles.

Also, the council will be pissed if I ignore a Dimension X defense mission. Fine.
But if I go to the mission and immediately abort it, then nothing. No malus.

I actually like this feature, personally. And it's not just Dimension X missions, either. Terror missions generally give you less of a hit for arriving and immediately aborting either. Like, there's kind of 3 different outcomes. The worst option, where you don't do your job and the council gets pissed. The best option, where you win and everybody loves you, and the middling option where you don't do anything but tell the council you tried. (ignoring the possibility of actually trying and losing)

It feels like a lot of the game is about knowing what fights you can take and what fights you -should- take and I like that the political calculations are part of that. Plus in the early game it rewards expanding your territorial coverage and in the midgame it rewards maintaining aerial dominance.

In terror mission, you lose points because of dead civilians.
In this specific mission, you don't lose points because there isn't any civilians. Yet the base is supposed to destroyed by the aliens and the council angry by the loss of the base.

Since when sawed-offs are necessarily called sawed-off shotguns? In my experience, nobody ever calls them that.

BTW, it also exists in Piratez, has been there for years and nobody has ever said "reee the name is incomplete".

and apparently cannot be bought from the get go, it requires finding one somewhere in order to research it, despite being such a simple weapon.

So do TTs, Skorpions and pitchforks...

Not in X-Com armoury? No documentation! It's been explained to death both in the mod and on the forums.

Moreover, it is incorrectly placed in the bottom part of the Field Equipment section, instead of together with other shotguns and similar guns.

True, some listOrders are still missing. I missed them, my bad.

Lastly, the Shrapnel Rocket with alien alloys is missing a proper description, as it is displayed as STR_SHRAPNEL ROCKETS ingame.

Also true. I fixed it yesterday, thanks.

This is pre-patch, but this save file has a Chtonite mini-base with multiple inaccessible pockets. I've just broken into one with a heavy sonic cannon, the other one has the two remaining Chtonites in it.

Thanks, I thought I have solved all such cases by now... I'll investigate.

Irrelevant, but I just gotta take a moment to say that I adore many, many things about that beautiful, sexy piece of pure Earthican engineering, but my favourite part is how it turns intervening obstacles into just more of an opinion, really.

Glad it's working :)

I also recently (1.3, pre-patch) had an Osiron warehouse mission spawn without an Osiron warehouse (meaning no crates after battle) and a Jarhead bank robbery (1.2) on a map with no bank (still got the million dollar bonus, though).

You are clearly using outdated OXCE.

In v1.3 with OXCE 6.4.2, I have spitter armed with acid pistols and disruptor rifles.

Another blast from the past... Can you tell me which mission it was, please?

Also, the council will be pissed if I ignore a Dimension X defense mission. Fine.
But if I go to the mission and immediately abort it, then nothing. No malus.

Well, you did the theatrics to satisfy political needs...
I don't think it's super bad, but I'll consider making this mission impossible to escape from. Or just add some X-Com civilian personnel to give you bad points if dead/abandoned.

EDIT: Fixed those caves.

Well, I thought it would have been different for XCF, since XCOM here is better at cataloguing than a bunch of pirates that have to rediscover everything.

So do TTs, Skorpions and pitchforks...

I know, but these are either repurposed gear, or exotic/antiquated weaponry. You get access to a bunch of new weapons with certain research topics, such as the Non-Standard Weapons one. I thought that a sawed off shotgun would be included as part of one of these packages, as it is an extremely common weapon, and you do get access to the "basic shotgun model" in that way as well.

On the T'leth factory mission when an aquatoid was standing above a soldier on an elevator I couldn't see them.  I knew there was an aquatoid there because of Psi Vision, but my soldier directly underneath the aquatoid on a 1 tile elevator could not see the enemy.  This happened multiple times.  I was also unable to kill the aquatoids via blind firing up the elevator, but I only tried a few times and may have just missed.

Also, the command center was completely sealed off, and I had to tunnel into it with Sonic Heavy Cannons.
I'm currently using version 1.12 of the Xcom Files.

lotus HQ, there is one tile in the elevator that is not accessible (in both elevators), even otherwise it looks like the rest.
Just can't walk there... (one level below its file)

(that screenshot may look like blatant camping. it is...  :'( almost 1999 and i don't have one cult down yet and no proper tech to take down lotus yet. took to mod 1998 to even find a durathread piece. wtf...)
