Why do you have regions STR_ANTARCTICA and STR_NORTH_PACIFIC? They're not in the mod nor vanilla. Delete them from your save (they're in several places).


Okay. I don't know about programming. Should I open the .sav file with a text editor for example and delete only what refers to STR_ANTARCTICA and STR_NORTH_PACIFIC?



Players need to something to complain about :)

 ;D

Thanks! 8)

You need to remove the whole relevant block... Basically part indicated by the same indentation or greater.

Give it a try.

They can be researched, you're probably missing the prerequisite.
Yeah you're right. I did it.

By the way... Why Taser Cannon is in the UFOpaedia at the start, but you can't buy, craft or research it? Seems like a bug here.

Solarius, I found a few bugs, but they are quick fixes, do you want me to do them?

Things like missing entries, mismatched alien types and what not.
Also, I would like to propose we change the name of the research prerequisites to something more meaningful, like "alien medic interrogated" instead of "medi-kit prerequisite".

Sure, I'd appreciate that. Please make a commit.

We could, I guess... It's a case by case based thing.
(And is only an issue due to the Tech Tree Viewer, these things shouldn't even need a string.)

Yes, it is a bug.

Bug I found on the Surf Time mission. Like to use dogs for it, but there's this odd circumstance where I try to chomp a baddie and I get a "there's no one there" response. I think it's a terrain issue?

Dogs are small so slopes mess their melee up big time, so does tall grass(since they can't see through it). Just try and find another tile that works, nothing can be done.

Oh, also, if handcuffs are still consumable, you could use zip ties instead, since they can be used to restrain individuals, are relatively cheap to buy and them being disposable makes sense, since you need to cut them to set people free (once they are inside a prison cell, of course  ;)).

Zip ties? In the 90s? Back then we had money and dignity!

Also, zip ties are evel and sometimes kill people who were supposed to be restrained.

Whoa what? I thought we were just ziptying the hands and feet. That can kill?

Yeah, I heard a number of people died of blood circulation problems related to the use. Basically people left with these on for too long, but still.

You don't leave a person bondaged overnight. The police does.

CTRL + move (LMB) - it should activate running, but it`s not. Why?

Hello.
I have a bug to report.
Heavy Crossbow Tritanium Bolts can not be loaded into the Heavy Crossbow.
